Steelesque:
«All my friends are dead».--A Dinosaur. But real rock-n-roll lives on. Led by songwriter Rob Eldridge, Steelesque blends the styles of the Vermont country-side with the blue-collar raunch of Pittsburgh's steel city «shot and a beer» bar scene. Steelesque is equal parts British Blues and latter-day jam band blending the sound and style of Exile on Main Street-era Stones with adventurous passages echoing Phish or Wilco.. The songs stand on their own and have been crafted carefully to lure the listener into the imagery zone. Eric Drake handles lead guitar duty and Jerry Courtney on bass both delivering solid backing vocals. Ronnie Castellucci has the band some boogie with his percussive ideas and energy. Bruce Virtue locks it down on drums with Sam Balidigowski lending mandolin duties to the group. At their best, the 6 piece Steelesque delivers the swagger of bands from days gone by while echoing their influences in a way that is all their own.

HABATAT:
Since early 2012, The ever-blossoming psychedelic Jam/Funk/Rock outfit HABATAT has made positive strides in the Pgh, Pa suburbs sharing stages with the likes of “Twiddle”, “the Heavy Pets”, “Pigeons Playing Ping Pong”, and “Zack Deputy” to name very few… Throughout 2013/2014, HABATAT focussed on playing clubs, bars, bowling alleys, any local venue that would have them; as well as festivals, fundraisers, and community events steadily building their following as they did.
2015 marked the band's first self titled release and opened the doors for mainstream acceptance; which quickly followed by them being offered many long term opportunities.
In 2016 the future looks extremely bright for this young group of euphonious pioneers. Combining gritty yet sultry vocals by Ryan Woods, colorful funky bass riffs from Kris Lupher, soulful solos from Cory «Gweedo» Mickinak, powerful dance/funk grooves by J.Banks and provocative horns from Josh Covert, this group will leave you floored with their energetic live performance; a raw boogaloo of sound.
Their music brings forth flashing vibes of some of the great legendary rock bands such as Cream, CCR, and The Grateful Dead but they are in a characteristic thumbprint completely of their own. Equipped with a four hour repertoire of original songs and ballads, Woods' vocalizations emit a fervent and rasping melody that sets the footprint for every song. The lyrical components of each verse are sung out with a boldness and warmth. Each one as good as the other.” By the great power of energy transmission between our close friends, the Habateers (fan club), and never ending support from family; We are happy to take you through our world of music and life, and continue to build to unseen horizons; growing as a community with people of love and passion in what they do and how we act with one another.
