    Hatfield drives forward a sound and energy unmistakably rooted in hard rock, but a closer listen reveals dynamic versatility in his writing. Songs like “Copin’ Ways” deliver soulful, rythmic guitar and throaty vocalizations, while songs like “a.m.” delve into a murky, foreboding resonance behind bleeding, ethereal vocals. His music emphasizes lyrical exploration, shaping the underlying message that life is a cycle of triumph and struggle, necessary in forming one’s identity.

    “Rivers” is a husband and wife songwriting team made up of Mike & Chandra Rivers…over the past few years they’ve been writing songs that will be on their upcoming debut record. Both have played in other bands in the past but this is their first go in music together apart from singing around the house(always a regular occurrence). We’ve enjoyed playing all over the Northeast for the last couple of years. “We’re very excited to play at The Branford Fest!” In addition to singing with “Rivers” Chandra plays trombone in The Hartford Hot Several and sings with Another Octave women’s chorus. Mike has played in numerous bands through the years.

    Acoustic Soup is a CT based acoustic music duo made up of Al Raebuck & Steve Blanchard. We play classic rock and other favorite songs that we enjoy and that we think you will too. We’ve played shows for 99.1 WPLR, The Branford Festival and more. Come out and sing a few with us!

    “Start Me Up” is the Shorelines newest and hottest Stones Tribute. Fronted by Sal Annuziato on vocals and featuring Joey Dendas on Drums, Tony Nuzzo on the bass, Rolan Pepin on Keys, Travis Moody and the "Flash on guitars this band is truly a local super group! Do not miss this show!
