THE SPAMPINATO BROTHERS are a 4-piece rock band whose music combines a variety of styles including rockabilly, jazz rock, power pop, garage rock, alternative country, Americana music, country rock and folk rock.
They're back with a new full-length studio album just out September 8th, SMILES:-)
Joey Spampinato is a founding member of the legendarily diverse, critically acclaimed and much-loved NRBQ, the only band to appear at the Berlin Jazz Festival, the New York Folk Festival and the Grand Ole Opry in the same year. Some twenty-five or so years after NRBQ's formation, Joey had the distinct pleasure of welcoming his brother Johnny into the band. During Johnny's tenure, NRBQ continued to make great music in the studio and in concert while also becoming the first band to appear on "The Simpsons" in both live and animated form.
Now, Joey and Johnny have turned the page to do what they always knew was their destiny: to write, record and perform music together as THE SPAMPINATO BROTHERS. Joey on bass gtr & vocals and Johnny on left handed gtr will be joined by Aaron Spade on guitar and Jay Cournoyer on drums.

Was she biased? Who’s to say. But one thing’s for sure - Teresa's boys are sharing their toys and playing nicely together.
Expect to hear a bunch of new tunes, but also plenty of the classic NRBQ tunes you remember.

FANCY TRASH from Northampton, Mass., works the line between rock and folk, blending a non-traditional sensibility with the tradition of acoustic instruments to make something unique. Folk-tinged indie rock. Don’t let the acoustic instruments fool you, Fancy Trash is a rock band.
Dave Houghton (vocals, guitars), Paul Kochanski (upright bass) and Jason Smith (drums) explore new ways to bring out the folk for the anti-folk.
