William Gruff debuts their new album, Binghamton

Featuring Will Tobin

New York based band William Gruff transcends genre and time.   Pulling from bluegrass, rock ‘n roll, gypsy swing and everything in between, their debut and self titled album leaves no stone unturned.  Their latest EP Binghamton moves in a more inward-looking direction, channeling the sounds of David Bowie with a healthy dose of country folk.  It is characterized by thoughtful to brisk rhythms, contemplative, expressive and yearning vocals, sweet harmonies and cogent lyrics.

Though ranging stylistically song to song, one thing remains constant – a commitment to thoughtful songwriting.  Leader singer and guitarist, Matt Cusack has assembled the some of the finest musicians in New York and Philadelphia on bass, drums, keys and guitar.  William Gruff promises to deliver electrifying live performances, both raw and unique that will bring any crowd to their feet, singing and dancing.

Music and Lyrics:  Matt Cusack, Arranged by William Gruff

William Gruff is:  Matt Cusack, Vince Federici, Charlie Heim, Will Tobin, Reinder Oldenburger

Wednesday 7:30pm

It’s our 6th Annual Thanksgiving Show featuring 2 of the most talented musical artists in Central New York!

Dusty Pas’cal is a husband, father to five children, and co-owner of his family’s company, Skaneateles-based D.B. Pascal Chimney and Roofing. He’s considered by many to be one of the top singer/songwriters in the Central New York region.

Dusty said that since he first picked up a guitar at age 13, he’s been a firm believer in the purity of his music. ?”Early on, I was influenced by guys like Kris Kristofferson and Jim Croce, because that’s who my dad listened to,” he said. ?”But actually, I was most influenced by my dad, who’s a songwriter himself.?”

“Lonesome,? is a heartbreaking ballad that includes lyrics written by Dusty’s father. “My dad came to one of my shows, and I could see him just sitting there writing something,” he recalled.  Dusty’s dad was in fact writing a poem about a friend of his who was on death’s doorstep, so Dusty set the poem, without changing a single word, to music.  “I know my dad so well, it just flowed out naturally.”

His three studio albums, Home (2006), More (2008), andHuman Heart (2012) have garnered attention in Central New York and across the nation; several tracks have been featured on local radio stations and internationally on XM Satellite Radio.

Dusty will move you from one end of music’s emotional spectrum to the other – and it will be a ride you’ll want to take again and again.

Loren Barrigar started playing guitar when he was only 4 years old, and by the time he was 6, he played the Chet Atkins hit “Yackety Axe” in front of thousands of country music fans at the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville. He went on to study with Jimmy Atkins (Chet’s brother) which led to a touring career with his family band from Nashville to Las Vegas. Since settling in Central New York he has been in constant demand as a studio musician and recently produced and played on the #1 rated CD in Syracuse, Dusty Pascal’s “Home” 2007.

His finely-honed songwriting skills have launched his melodies on NBC’s #1 rated show “ER,” “The Young and The Restless,” and on a Christmas CD with BB King and Patti Labelle. He has recently performed with some of the best acoustic players in the world including Stephen Bennett, Richard Smith, John Knowles, Muriel Anderson and Loren’s friend and mentor Tommy Emmanuel the Australian guitar sensation. He has also recorded with Multiple Grammy winner and legendary producer Lloyd Maines.

In 2010 Loren made a guest appearance at The Chet Atkins Appreciation Society {CAAS} in Nashville with his pickin’ pal from New Zealand Mark Mazengarb. They will be there again in 2011 . For the last few years Loren has been working on fingerstyle guitar. His recently released CD “Dance With Me” is a result of that work, and it received a SAMMY Award for Best Country CD.{2009} He is now touring in support of his 2nd solo CD Chillaxin’. His solo concerts include favorite songs from 7 decades as well as his originals all featuring exciting guitar work and memorable vocal stylings.
