Pesky J. Nixon and Miles to Dayton photos

This special co-bill features Pesky J. Nixon and Miles to Dayton, two outstanding bands that really know how to engage their audiences. Pesky J. Nixon and Miles to Dayton will perform their own music and each other’s, often with all band members on stage at once.

Drawing influences from contemporary urban balladeers, rowdy southern bluegrass, and the sardonic yet wry wit of New England’s localized folk scenes, Pesky J. Nixon (PJN) creates an atmosphere both inviting and challenging for audiences. Compelling harmonies and narratives rein in disparate instrumentation including- zydeco style accordion, virtuosic mandolin, a variety of tribal percussion, and a myriad of string instrumentation.

The music of Miles to Dayton (M2D) happens at a personal level, their message of love blending elements of folk, rock, classical, and funk into an irresistible invitation. The M2D recipe is simple: four-part vocal harmony, clever songwriting, improvisational violin and cello, and an infectious rhythm section that stirs up the creative stew.

Coffee, tea, and a variety of delicious homemade desserts will be available.
