Hobson's Choice
Thomas Bryan Eaton was born under a full moon on the first day of Spring; shortly there after, he sat down at a piano for the first time and fell in head over heels. A true lover of music in all its forms, Thomas can play pretty much anything that makes noise, but likes to spend his time wandering around the frets of a guitar and singing songs with nice melodies.


His talents first took him to Ithaca, NY, a legendary hot spot of music and culture in upstate New York. There he helped form Cletus and the Barnburners, a renegade bluegrass band that toured internationally for 5 years. Searching for a more varied musical existence, Thomas picked up and moved to New York City. Taking the opportunity to soak in the creative hub of the

city and develop as an artist, he began playing solo shows and performing original material. He also gathered some close friends and formed Hobson's Choice, a rock 'n' roll band reminiscent of The Rolling Stones, Dylan, and the best parts of The Grateful Dead. The band has been known to get the normally stoic city crowds dancing at such venues as; Zebulon, Mercury Lounge, Union Pool, Pianos and Rockwood Music Hall.

I'll Be John Brown
I’ll Be John Brown is a 5-piece Country outfit that began on a couch in the East Village, New York City, in the winter of 2005. Since then, we’ve been working hard to capture the sound and spirit of classic country heroes ranging from Hank Williams and the Carter Family to Waylon Jennings and Roger Miller, while putting it all in a modern, high-energy package. We feel that much of what goes under the moniker of “Country” these days is not true to the roots of the genre. Here's our version. Enjoy.

Cheap Blue Yonder is an NYU based folk rock band from New York City. Founded in 2011, their newest EP "Palaces, Homes" was just released on their website, and the band is looking forward to playing shows to promote it in the coming months. Next for them is a college tour this spring as well as a southern tour this summer. While their personal influences range from Wilco to Phish, the band comes together to create a cohesive, driving and engaging folk sound.
