Steve Noonan

Steve Noonan

Steve Noonan grew up in the Northeast corridor. At Boston’s Berklee College of Music, he learned to appreciate and fine tune the craft of songwriting and singing. His influences range from singer-songwriters of the ’70s, to postmodern British bands of the ’80s, to producer/songwriters of today like John Shanks and Dann Huff. Think of a sound you might get when Warren Zevon, Oasis, and Aimee Mann are stirred and shaken.…

Steve Smith NYC Edition

Steve Smith

Steve Smith’s drumming, while always decidedly modern, can best be described as a style that embodies the history of U.S. music. His original love of rudimental parade drumming is evident in his intricate solos. Likewise, his command of jazz, from New Orleans music, swing, bebop, avant-garde to fusion, is applied with his powerful rock drumming sensibilities and allows him to push the boundaries of all styles to new heights. His…

The ensemble has now expanded its reach to include the Yellowjackets and most importantly, original compositions all their own. A wide variety of musical styles has been pursued by these composers in their conscious effort to promote, advance and develop original musical voices. This music is so complex that…

Subdudes

The Subdudes

In 1987, four musicians got together for what they envisioned would be a one-time performance at Tipitina’s in New Orleans. It was a night of mostly acoustic music – sparse instrumentation with a strong emphasis on songwriting and vocal harmonies. The show far exceeded expectations, and on that March night the subdudes were born. Nearly 10 years later, after releasing five critically acclaimed albums and building a hard-core cadre of…
