In Like A Lion


Hello Happy Friends! Our forthcoming EP is shaping up in the studio and we’re brimming with anticipation. We’ll be announcing a release date soon so expect to see the finished product this spring. In the meantime the calendar is filling up with exciting shows around the northeast.

We’re excited for a night at Copper City Brewing Company in Rome NY next weekend. This will be our first time there and it looks like they have a nice spread of craft brews to fuel our fire. We haven’t been out west in a while so we’ll be bringing the heat.

Word has been spreading like wildfire through the hills about our St. Paddy’s Day show at Helderberg Brewery in Rensselaerville NY. We’re expecting a crowd so the event will be held at the Carriage House, which is also located on the grounds at the Carey Institute. There will be trad music, special guests and delicious beers so make the trip up the hill Friday March 16th.

Awesome October Shenanigans

We’ve had a great couple weeks at some sweet venues.  We started the month off at Harmony Music in Woodstock NY. It had been a while since our last show there and we were welcomed back with open arms. The Great Cortland Pumpkin Fest was amazing. The crowd was fantastic and the vendors had everything you’d want on a fall afternoon. Our first ever show at Temple in Rochester was cool, we saw some old friends and made some new ones. Jumpstart Jacoby started off the night and we were blown away by his tunes and soulful voice. We did a local gig in Albany at Parish Public House with our buddies Mournin Dove. It was great to be back in town and see the old crowd.

Last weekend we had a blast up north in Keeseville NY on Friday night then Burlington VT on Saturday.  Friday at the Riverside Tavern was unbelievable. After a rowdy barroom dance party (complete with conga line) we hung out all night by the fire pit with the friendly folks of Keeseville. Saturday we headed to Burlington for a show at Red Square on Church St. We got there early, the weather was nice and we listened to Shrimp Tunes pull off a killer one man band set. Then we rocked all night. It was the perfect Indian Summer night and people were out in droves. Everyone was dancing and there was a crowd of passerby’s stopped on Church St. cheering us on the whole time. It was really a great experience and we can’t wait to come back to Burlington.

Here are a few pictures:

Fun Fall Runs

September has been crazy AF with 10 shows throughout the monthIMG_20170922_222453.  We’re blessed to have the opportunity to share our tunes with so many adoring fans.  Now it’s time to catch everybody up on what we’ve been doing and give you guys some photos to stare at. There’s a lot to talk about so I’ll try to be brief.

We started the month off with a set at the Northeast’s hottest festival Eastbound Throwdown. After that, our first show at Boathouse Beer Garden on Cayuga Lake in Romulus NY was amazing and solidified our love for the Finger Lakes. Froggy Daze 6 kicked ass and we tore it up with a nice late night set. We did a relaxing Sunday Pig Roast at Crosby Farm up in Berne to end that weekend. A last minute fundraiser for Hurricane victims came up at Parish Public House so we joined on for a quick set.  After that we had a run starting in Ithaca at The Range. That cool mural with the flying wolf girl was outside. The next night we played for all our friends at Savoy Taproom in Albany for a Larkfest after party. We ended the weekend at Bethel Wood’s Center for the Arts Harvest Festival.  We closed out the month with a New England weekend starting at The Stomping Grounds in Putnam CT. From there we did a couple sets at The Manchester Fall Arts and Crafts Festival in Vermont.

We’re still rocking with a lot of fun shows coming up so check out our full calendar. Here’s some pictures:

Hot August Weekend

It’s been a slow month for BMS, so we loaded up last weekend to make up for it.  We stayed busy with 3 shows in a row around Upstate NY.

Friday night (8/18) we took a ride out to Cortland to play at the Cortland Beer Company.   Despite rain in Albany, it was hot and sunny when we got to Cortland. Everyone was enjoying beers on the patio, so we took a bit of a gamble and decided to set up outside.  All the weather app’s said we had a slim chance of rain but suddenly the skies got dark and we were hit with a hard crazy thunderstorm. We grabbed what we could and threw tarps on everything else. By the time the skies cleared our stuff was too wet to risk playing. The crew there was great helping us dry stuff off. It was a bummer but we got to enjoy some amazing beers and hang out with some cool people. The Naked Lap Lager and Firehouse Pale Ale were probably our favorites but they had a huge selection of delicious beers. The brewery was fantastic and we can’t wait for a redo sometime soon.

Saturday the 19th we played Summer Fest at Henry Hudson Riverfront Park in Hudson NY. It was a great event to raise money for some wonderful local causes including FarmOn! Foundation, the Hudson Area Library and Bindlestiff Family Cirkus.  The Cirkus put on some awesome shows, like riding unicycles between knife jugglers and a rendition of Black and Tans following our set. There were a ton of great acts on the stage including local legends NRBG. Our buddy, and Hudson’s own, Jake Plourde brought his banjo up for Carolina and our version of the Irish tune Nora.  It was a beautiful summer day and we had a blast playing along the river.

Sunday the 20th we headed to Warwick NY to play Fill the Hill in the Sunshine at Pennings Farm. They’ve set up an awesome festival area behind the cidery.  It’s a beautiful rolling hill set in the orchards with an amazing view of the Hudson Valley.  The Cidery served up some delicious drinks, including currant, beet and pear ciders. Flux Capacitor put on a killer set and had us dancing to some dead covers.  The Jennys followed with some cool tunes.

Here’s some photos:

Mean Max and Fiddler’s Picnic

We’ve had a blast over the past couple weeks.  We played some great shows, met some amazing people and seen lots of outstanding musicians.  It’s been a fantastic summer and we’re riding high.  Here’s a run down of what we’ve been up to.

On Friday July 21st we played our first ever show at Mean Max Brew Works in Glens Falls NY.  Our buddy Jesse Sample from The 7th Squeeze came along so we called him up on guitar for a few tunes.   The show was in support of the GEM Fest that happened the following weekend.  We’re thrilled to be a part of the amazing scene in Glens Falls.  They have a thriving local music community that has embraced us and we always love coming up there.  The crew at Mean Max was great and we indulged ourselves with their delicious beers.

Saturday July 22nd we headed up to Rensselaerville to play a garden concert at the library.  We love Rensselaerville and are always happy to perform their for friends and family but we never expected how awesome this show would be.  The garden filled up with a manic crowd that ate up everything we threw at them.  By the end of the night the dance floor was pulsing and everyone was going crazy.  It was one of the best dance parties we’ve put on in a while.  The night was pure magic.

Saturday July 29th we took the stage at Fiddler’s Picnic in Marion NY.  It was an energetic bluegrass festival on Eddy Ridge Farm just outside of Rochester.  The venue is amazing, set on a farm in rural Upstate NY.  We got a great response from the crowd and enjoyed mind blowing bluegrass well into the night.  The Honey Smugglers, Zootoba, Dirty Blanket, Pine Fever and Grateful Folk kept the dance floor packed into the wee hours of the morning.  It was amazing seeing everyone partying all day and night, really a one of a kind experience.  We met a ton of great people.  Herby1 organized the whole thing and is one of the coolest dudes we’ve encountered.  All the vendors and patrons were amazing as well.

Here’s some pictures:

Riverboat Bar, Alexandria Bay NY

This past weekend we had the pleasure of playing a show in Alexandria Bay at Riverboat Bar.  We spent the day enjoying the St. Lawrence River before heading into town to rock out for a wonderful crowd at Riverboat.  Buskers on the Bay was happening all weekend and brought a fantastic crowd to town.  The bar was packed all night and we had an amazing response from the crowd.

Alexandria Bay is a great beach town along an inlet on the St. Lawrence River.  It’s located in the heart of the 1,000 Islands region near Lake Ontario.  We’ve been going up to play at Riverboat Bar during the summer for several years and it has become one of our favorite summertime spots.  We have a few friends that live in town and it’s always great to see them.  In fact, we played at Mike and Karen’s wedding in Alexandria Bay 12 years ago Sunday.  We got to see them and they’re wonderful kids and celebrate their anniversary.  Also, a friend of ours from Rensselaerville let us use their cabin and we got to meet some of their family that came out to the show.  It was a fantastic night of new and old friends.  We couldn’t have had a better time.

Riverboat Bar has made a name for themselves by bringing the best regional acts to Alex Bay.  Their calendar is a who’s who of great acts from around New York and the Northeast.  They serve delicious food and savory craft beers on a beautiful outdoor patio and feature a cool boat shaped bar.  If you’re ever in the area Riverboat is the place to party.

Here are some photos from the weekend.  Enjoy!
