Dance funk rockers from New Haven, sent to bring slam disco to the world Milksop:Unsung
Milksop:Unsung is a quartet out of New Haven, CT. The bluegrass instrumentation will have the crowd anticipating an old time sound, but Milksop will surprise them with wild progressions, arrangements, and lyrics. They have shared the stage with Bob Log III, The Two Man Gentleman Band and others. Aside from the recordings they have online, Milksop has an extensive set of energetic compositions that seek rowdy crowds. So, do yourself a favor and check them out. You Scream, I Scream
You Scream I Scream was started by Floyd Kellogg (bass,vox) and Audrey Sterk (drums) playing and writing songs in the sacred basement where lots of great rock bands have started. These underground venues found on the island of Nantucket should be bronzed as if they are baby shoes of rock cause they were... thanks. After some time being island locked, Kellogg ran into a friend from long ago back on earth. Kellogg asked Omer Shemesh (keys) who hails from Isreal, "hey do you want to be in my band?" and he responded, "na, how 'bout you be in my band" and the trio continued on. The band plays with another performer which adds a wild card to the shows, videos and recordings. Most of the time this person is a female, who might be an actress, singer, musician, juggler or just plain best friend who is then a part of the You Scream I Scream camp for their outings and projects. Through their clever combination of bass, drums and keys (toy piano, glockenspiel and obscure Japanese electronic instruments that Nick Tardiff hopfully forgot we had) they transport you to a virtual playground for big kids where sing-a-longs make you as popular as prom queen and you can fondly recall your toy robot and very first pet bad ass fish... that's the icecream part.
