Carlos Calvo

Actor, Director, Producer, Rob Morrow became a household name playing Dr. Joel Fleischman in the award-winning television show Northern Exposure, a role which garnered him three Golden Globe and two Emmy Award nominations for "Best Actor in a Dramatic Series."He directed and produced the independent feature, Maze, which he also wrote and co-starred in with Laura Linney. He also produced and directed the NBC comedy pilot 'The Grean Teem' and has directed episodes of HBO's Oz, Showtime's Street Time, USA's Necessary Roughness, and the long running hit CBS Drama, Numb3rs, in which he also starred in for six seasons as FBI agent Don Eppes.

A long time musician, Rob launched a band, "NHI" (No Harbored Illusions) on October 11, 2012 to celebrate his birthday and satisfy fan demand to take his music to another level, which at that point had just been him playing solo gigs and benefits with his guitar and his original songs.For the occasion, which was originally just a one-time event, Rob teamed up with good friend Carlos Calvo and a group of world-class musicians. A private concert was given to Rob's good friends and showbiz insiders at the famed Molly Malone's in Los Angeles. By many accounts the stars aligned into a harmonic convergence and the evening, which was filmed and recorded for DVD and CD, was considered "the party of the year". After the auspicious debut and because of mounting industry and fan interest, the group decided to stay together and take the act out to the world.Rob and Carlos are actively writing and recording music, some of which can be found online and on iTunes, with more to be released in 2014. The duo have performed at numerous live music venues in Los Angeles including, Witzend and The Mint, and will be taking their act on the road this summer.

Crown Vics

Rockabilly Cruise with The Crown Vics

Playing traditional rockabilly in a style that honors the era of Carl Perkins and Scotty Moore The Crown Vics tear it up with new energy and enthusiasm.Growing up in New York City, Hollywood, suburban New Jersey and Downeast Maine it was listening to the music of Led Zeppelin, The Grateful Dead, punk rock, new wave, '90's alt-rock and all kinds of blues and soul that taught Frank, Drew, Gordon and Steve the essentials of rock'n'roll. It would be decades, and many dive bar bands later that these four unlikely and very different cats ended up rehearsing one winter night in Steve's living room. After that initial rehearsal The Vics immediately started headlining shows.With their gung-ho spirit, short and to the point songs (with hardly a breath between numbers), the band causes quite a hullabaloo when they take the stage.Each member allows their own musical persuasions, and over 100 years of combined showbiz experience to shape the presentation of The Crown Vics. There are elements of reggae, '60's Brit pop, and indie-alt that help make either a dramatic or comedic musical point. Yeah, you guessed it, The Vics are serious about the music and doing a first-rate show, however the guys don't take themselves too seriously. It is all about having fun with fans and friends and making every show a good time and better than the last show.For you gear heads and followers of fashion, The Vics feature a nice collection of guitars, stand up bass, a really beat up set of drums and pretty cool clothes! Most importantly, The Crown Vics are an infectious, hi octane, full tilt band that will get your blood boilin' even if you are unfamiliar with the vintage kick ass rockabilly sound.

Song Writer cruise with The Jason Spooner Band

This multi-award winning New England-based songwriter discovered his father's collection of eight-track tapes as a child and never looked back. After early exposure to songwriter legends like Neil Young, Paul Simon, Jim Croce and Van Morrison along with Motown heavies like Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Gladys Knight, Jason was inspired to start making the rounds on coffee house stages in his teens. Shortly thereafter, he spent time in Europe performing in folk & blues clubs and on the streets of London and around Spain. Once back in the states, he landed a job at a roots & blues record label where he witnessed numerous Blues legends (including members of the original Muddy Waters band ) making magic in recording sessions. Before long, Jason jumped head-first into the Northeast's burgeoning songwriter scene.

Ghost of Paul Revere

The Ghost of Paul Revere

Born of the waters of the Saco River, brothers in all but name, the Ghost of Paul Revere is Maine's holler-folk band. Building their songs around powerful three-part harmonies, energetic performances, and a non-traditional way of interpreting traditional American music, The Ghost draws from a broad array of influences including Elmore James and the Beatles, to Tom Waits and more. The Ghost writes powerful songs, built on melody and energy, designed to be performed with passion. From folk to foot-stomping bluegrass, the songs have unique identities while still remaining undeniably the Ghost of Paul Revere. Their live show has quickly attained legendary status, with fans traveling unholy distances from the most remote corners of Maine to catch the band on their way up. The Ghost was formed around childhood friends Max Davis, Sean McCarthy, and Griffin Sherry. They put the Ghost of Paul Revere together in 2011 with Matt Young. In that short time they have played from Fort Kent to New York City in everything from houses, churches, music halls, and even sail boats. Their critically acclaimed debut EP, "North", was recorded in late 2011, released in the summer of 2012, and quickly became one of the best selling local albums in Maine and New Hampshire for 2013. In August 2013, the group went into the studio with Jonathan Wyman to record their first full length album.  "Believe", released in January 2014 quickly went on to hit the Billboard Northeast chart and continues to be the best selling local album in Maine. A live album of their sold out "Believe" release party from Port City Music Hall is slated for release in fall 2014.
