Event description
Nashville's "psychedelic-bloos" band at The Porch!

About this Event

The Minks are Nashville’s “psychedelic-bloos” band, heavy on the rock and roll. We’re talking low-down, all the way, purse-lipped, eyes-shut, head-whirling kind of rock and roll. The band’s palpable sound has roots in every music fan’s top ten—from Lou to Patti to Creedence to Hank. Mixed with raw, jangly instrumentation and soulful saccharine vocals, it’s as much a throwback as it is an answer to the often overlooked underbelly of Nashville’s rock and roll scene.

Front woman Nikki Barber hightailed it to Music City a few years back in hopes of pursuing her musical birthright. With just a guitar and a dream, she created The Minks because she had to. It was this “create or combust” determination, and a little help from her friends, that made her vision a reality. With a few hundred miles, a couple of EPs, some new faces, and a slew of local buzz under their belts, the band sets out to release their first full-length record (Light and Sweet) this Fall through Cafe Rooster Records and tour for forever.

Rolling Nectar

Boston-based ROLLING NECTAR embraces vintage-style rock 'n roll influences such as Free, Jimi Hendrix, and Humble Pie, creating a uniquely honest and gritty modern rock sound laced with psychedelic overtones, Americana & old-school Rhythm & Blues. Fronted by founder Kevin J. Graham (vocals/guitar), and backed by the TNT rhythm section of bruising drummer Tony St. Cyr and multi-instrumentalist Todd M. Smith on bass, Rolling Nectar has recently added guitar stylist Nick Moreira, and are accompanied onstage by backing vocalists Leah Hinton and Christine Moser, known as the "Nectarines". The band won the Boston Hard Rock Rising competition in 2016, was nominated for the 2016 "Rock Act Of The Year" by the New England Music Awards, and was a 2015 finalist in the "Last Band Standing" competition at the Hard Rock. They recently opened for international touring act Tyler Bryant and the Shakedown, the legendary Rusted Root, and a special tribute featuring members of Foghat and Badfinger, as well as being the personal local rock favorite of the Boston Red Sox organization, having been invited to perform before games on several occasions. Rolling Nectar has recorded with renowned producer Phil Greene (Peter Wolf, Keith Richards, Mick Jagger) and recently worked at Woolly Mammoth studio with uber-producer/guitarist David Minehan of The Neighborhoods & Paul Westerberg/Replacements fame. In this day and age, high-quality rock 'n roll bands with uniquely talented members are hard to come by. Rolling Nectar is the genuine article.
