NYCGigs.com presents an evening of performances by artists you should really get to know. Tonight's show will feature:
Dave Diamond, a creative multi-instrumentalist who, although a drummer first, is also equally at home on guitar, bass, and drums. He has toured, recorded, or shared the stage with a diverse mix of artists and bands, including The Zen Tricksters, Bob Weir, Maceo Parker, the Wailers, Todd Rundgren, Stanley Jordan, Richie Havens, Robert Randolph, Pete Francis (Dispatch), and so many more. Among the highlights of his varied discography are two records with keyboardist Jason Crosby (Robert Randolph & the Family Band), which featured Oteil Burbridge, Derek Trucks, and Marc Quinones (all of the Allman Brothers), Leo Nocentelli (the Meters), Susan Tedeschi, Shannon McNally, Harvey S., and Marc Broussard.
Caleb Hawley, an extraordinary singer-songwriter who possess the ability both to write intricate lyrics with cutting-edge chords and to reel off lightening fast licks, all with impeccable taste and style. Receiving top honors in the prestigious New York Songwriter's Circle Contest (2008 and 2009), the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (2009), the Telluride Festival (2010), the Falcon Ridge Folk Festival (2010), and Rocky Mountain Folks Fest (2011) for his songwriting, he also has a voice that placed him in the final 50 on the 2011 American Idol Season. Sharing the stage with industry greats such as Mark Cohn, Rusted Root, Dave Matthews Band, Shawn Mullins, and Edwin McCain, this diverse songwriter has written and produced three albums and toured all over the country playing sold-out venues and nationwide festivals. His latest album is We All Got Problems (2010).
Outside the Box, an original rock 'n' roll band from the Jersey Shore and New York City. The band was formed in 2004 and quickly developed into one of New Jersey's most dynamic new bands, blending classic elements of rock with a modern flare and a driving pop edge. In 2008, the band was selected as the Stone Pony Summer House Band for the following two years. Between 2007 and 2010, the group also won Asbury Music Awards for Top Young Band, Top Blues Band, and Top Keyboardist. The band released its first full-length album Bridge in July 2011.
