Pesky J Nixon, Miles to Dayton in WUSB 40th Anniversary show

Sunday, June 25th, 5 P.M. at The Long Island Museum 

Two bands, who happen also to be very good friends, get together for a great collaborative experience on our stage. The musical sparks will fly!

They will be featuring songs heard on air during WUSB’s four decades of broadcasting for this very special show. This is also the 200th show in The Sunday Street Series and will benefit WUSB.

Pesky J Nixon (PJN) is a New England-based band who draw their influences from contemporary urban balladeers, rowdy southern bluegrass, and the sardonic yet wry wit of New England’s rick folk scene. Compelling harmonies and narratives reign with disparate instrumentation including zydeco style accordion, virtuoso mandolin, tribal percussion and a myriad of string instrumentation. (www.peskyjnixon.com)

Miles To Dayton (m2d) a Long Island-based band, blends elements of folk, rock, classical and funk with four-part harmony, clever songwriting, improvisational violin and cello, and an infectious rhythm section. They have built a large grass roots following of fans who have flocked to their performances at venues like the Great South Bay Music Festival, the Boulton Center, the Patchogue Theatre and the Paramount.
