Mountain Laurel, Unruly Mane, The Fitzgeralds [Ages 21+, Doors Open 6pm, $12 Advance, $15 Day of Show]

Mountain Laurel

Mountain Laurel is the oft told tale of a college cover band turned indie rock group. All four members of the band are Fairfield, CT natives, New York City residents, and alumni of Fordham University. In the fall of 2014 Andrew Pierson, Robert Salandra, and William Corona began playing bars and rooftop parties alike in their beloved Bronx, New York as a cover band called Seabass and the Fellas. After graduating from Fordham, the three friends stuck together to continue playing shows in the New York City metro area, eventually supplementing their sound with the delicate tones of vocalist Emma Salandra. Informed by Phish and Dave Matthews Band shows at the Hartford Meadows, classic rock on FM radio’s 95.9 the Fox, and their parents’ Stevie Wonder and Fleetwood Mac records, Mountain Laurel’s sound transcends the typical indie rock genre to include influences of folk, jazz, rock, pop, and country music. The band is currently in the studio with plans to release new music in early 2022.


Unruly Mane

Unruly Mane was formed in 2015 by married duo Leea Scarola and Steven Scarola, who were inspired to make music that honored their Irish and Italian roots. That sentiment birthed their first EP entitled Roots which combines boot-stomping sing-a-longs with tales of bravery, heartbreak, love, and perseverance.

Building off their diverse musical backgrounds, Steve and Leea have combined their love of rock, pop, and folk to create the signature sound of Unruly Mane. Steve Scarola began his songwriting journey as lead guitarist and songwriter for the critically acclaimed pop-rock band, Push Play. Steve co-wrote Midnight Romeo which got national radio play and reached #17 on the top 40 charts in 2009. After playing with Push Play for 5 years, Steve went to Fordham University where he met his now-wife, Leea, and together they formed La La Lush. La La Lush grew a strong cult following at Fordham and across NYC, leading them to sell out venues like Bowery Ballroom, share bills with Grouplove, appear at music festivals like SXSW, and get a feature spot in GEICO’s Indie Across America Campaign.

After gaining a loyal fanbase from years of live shows in New York City, Unruly Mane has expanded their reach globally, having performed in Kenya, Ireland, and Canada. In 2020 and 2021, Unruly Mane worked tirelessly in the studio with engineer Skylar Adler (of The Sound Is Fine and The Nico Blues), with plans to release various singles throughout 2022.

The Fitzgeralds

The Fitzgeralds formed in 2008 during the band members’ sophomore year at Fordham University when Chris Fitzgerald recruited Tim Pierson, Greg Iacurci, and Nick Walsh for a rehearsal in the basement of Keating Hall.  Since that time, The Fitzgeralds were joined by Nick’s high school bandmate, David Lerer, along with Tim’s brother, Andrew Pierson.  After years of covering the Rolling Stones, David Bowie, the Cure, U2, and other artists at house parties and bars around New York City, The Fitzgeralds recorded their first original track, “The Shore,” at Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport, CT, which was released in July 2021. Inspired by indie and alternative rock bands like Arcade Fire, Frightened Rabbit, and The National, as well as synth-pop groups like New Order, M83, and Future Islands, The Fitzgeralds continue to play shows around NYC and plan to release new tracks in the coming months. Be on the lookout!
