CELEBRATE HALLOWEEN WEEKEND AT THE LIVERY!!

McLovins is a soulful, funk-rock band that complements a youthful energy with seasoned musical talent.
Inspired by an eclectic mix of influences like The Meters, The Band and The Flaming Lips, members Jason Ott, Jake Huffman, Justin Berger, and Atticus Kelly combine their songwriting skills with extended improvisations and instrumental ingenuity.

Taking a page from their jam band forefathers, McLovins always try to keep their audiences guessing at what’s to come. Their eclectic setlists and individual musical personas define the band’s live shows. Hailing from Hartford, Connecticut, McLovins have appeared at Gathering of The Vibes, Mountain Jam, The Peach Festival and the legendary Nateva Music Festival, as well as many acclaimed venues across the country. They have also performed with some of the most influential artists on the scene, including Buddy Guy, George Porter, Jr. and Oteil Burbridge.

Recently the band cut an album with Emmy, Grammy, and Tony award winning producer Bill Sherman in New York City’s East Village. The album was released this October and the band is currently on tour. The band continues to evolve, bringing their distinctive, jam-rock productions across the country. Every tour brings a unique energy.

Formed in 2013 from members of Northeast regional acts Timbre Coup and Capital Zen, Mister F are an eclectic, high-energy 4-piece band that takes a no-holds-barred approach to blending genres while keeping your feet moving. Describing their sound as “neat and clean, hard and dangerous”, Mister F‘s calculated yet danceable fusion-fueled sound provides something for both musicians and listeners alike. Having performed at festivals such as The Hudson Project, Catskill Chill, Disc Jam and Resonance, and with their previous bands at Mountain Jam, moe.down, Summer Camp, Camp Bisco, and snoe.down, the members of Mister F are no strangers to the music community. Their first show on March 1, 2013 was very well-received, and they quickly took their show on the road, reaching cities as far as Telluride, CO and Atlanta, GA within just a few short years.

“Mister F…a dynamic quartet that broaches all aspects of organized music. Rooted in funk traditions, Mister F‘s members are no strangers to unique compositions and sonic explorations, though it’s done with a tightness that keeps listeners dancing throughout their performances.”
