About the bands:
Looms 10:30 www.loomsmusicnyc.com
Formed in the winter of 2012, Looms consists of frontman Sharif Mekawy (vocals, keys, guitar), Harry Morris Jr. (guitar), A. Hammond Murray (bass) and Louis Cozza (drums). The groups’ music is written around vocals and melodic instrumental arrangements. Each song has its own identity, an evolving catalogue that runs the gamut of song construction. Rock, pop, jazz, electronic, country and folk music are dissected and deconstructed down to their basic components, and then reassembled during the bands writing process. Following the release of their recent EP, Sleeping Days and debut LP, Waking Days, the band is already in the studio mixing new material for summer of 2017. Looms’s newest compositions are equal parts rhythm and content with insightful, emotionally engaging vocals. Looms has built a grassroots fan base by captivating its audience. Fans return knowing they are not going to see a cookie cutter set because of the groups’ improvisational acumen within bridge and solo sections. Non-traditional covers and varied set lists build the mysticism and musical prowess of the group.
Francie Moon 11:20
Imagine yourself stepping into a garage filled with deep reds and oranges, a family garden, and an insatiable curiosity. Francie Moon is a raw east coast styling of garage rock & blues folk that pulls at your gut and kisses your third eye on the way out.
