John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band
The legendary "East Coast Rock'n'Roll" group John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band began their career in 1972 and achieved mainstream success in the 1980s with the "Eddie & The Cruisers - Motion Picture Soundtrack". The hit single "On the Dark Side" held the "Number-One" position on the Billboard Rock charts and the MTV video charts for “five” consecutive weeks. The album sold over 3 million copies and was certified triple Platinum by the RIAA.

The title track from the group's 1985 follow-up album “Tough All Over” became their second "Number-One" single on the Billboard Rock charts and the song “C-I-T-Y” reached the Billboard Top 20. John Cafferty's solo track "Hearts on Fire" was featured in the Sylvester Stallone film "Rocky IV” and he received his second double Platinum soundtrack award. Over the years John has placed 35 songs in major motion pictures.

Today John Cafferty and the Beaver Brown Band continue to tour and bring their exciting live shows to fans around the world. In 2012 they were inducted into the Rhode Island Music Hall Of Fame.

The Boston Herald says of Matt York's new album Boston, Texas that ”the singer-songwriter uses basic building blocks — Holly’s chords, Hank Williams’ swagger, Steve Earle’s boozy wisdom, Paul Westerberg’s straight-up-drunk wisdom — to construct an album of beauty, optimism and heartbreak”. Matt's new album explores a cross-section of everything from straight-up rock n roll to hints of outlaw country. His album has received radio airplay on WZLX, 92.5 The River, WAAF 107.3 and radio stations across the country. His song "I'm Back" also earned him the New England Country Music Organization's "2016 Traditional Country Song of the Year" award. He was also Alt-92.9 FM’s Local Artist of the Week.

Matt grew up in Foxboro and as a teenager, began playing shows with Boston music legend Rick Berlin and later fronted the indie punk band Wide Iris, Through the years he's played the stages of CBGB, The Bitter End The Channel, T.T. the Bears, The Rat and several other places that no longer exist. He performs both as a solo artist and with a full band. He lives on the South Shore of Massachusetts.
