The Alpaca Gnomes are a spirited seven-piece rock-folk-jam band based out of Bridgeport, CT. They incorporate violin and saxophone into their well crafted songs along with both acoustic and electric guitars, bass, drums and soulful vocals.
The band is as much about community as they are music, as their loyal fans display during live performances as they dance and sing along while sometimes also sporting signature Gnome hats in the crowd. Their dynamic yet earthy sound allows the band to switch seamlessly between originals that span multiple genres and a wide range of ever changing crowd pleasing covers. This musical flexibility has also allowed the band to share stages with a wide variety of musical acts such as Living Colour, Blues Traveler, The Drifters, Rick Derringer, DJ Logic and a host of other rock and jam bands on stages such as Pleasantville Music Festival(NY), International Festval of Arts & Ideas(New Haven), Jerry Jam(New Hampshire), Rock and Roll Resort(NY), Pasadena, CA, Infinity Music Hall, Toads Place, The Palade Theater Stamford, Arelene’s Grocery and Rockwood Music Hall(NYC).
Whether the setting is an intimate show or a large outdoor gathering, The Alpaca Gnomes are ready to share a live high vibing musical experience with you.
Laini and the Wildfire is a piano-fronted pop rock band with lots of sass and a little soul from New Haven, CT. Since 2016, the band has been actively releasing music and performing at venues and festivals throughout the east coast. Their latest single "Hold On To Your Soul" is a feel-good soulful jam that channels the eclectic musical blend of artists like Lake Street Dive and Grace Potter. The song marks the re-emergence of the group with a message about understanding the value in being who you are at your core without compromise, and sets the tone for future releases.
In November 2017, Laini and the Wildfire released their first full length album, Wandering, which awarded them the title of “Best Pop Band 2017” by Indie Voice Blog, as well as numerous write-ups from press outlets including The Hartford Courant, CD Baby, The Big Takeover, and Indie Spoonful (view "Press" for more info). They have steadily gained recognition for their energetic and engaging performances and some performance highlights include: Sailfest (New London, CT), Riverfront Music Revival (Shelton, CT) and Conserfest (Block Island, RI). Laini and the Wildfire plans to release several singles into early 2022, before releasing a full collection of new songs later in the year.
Band Members: Laini Marenick (vocals and keys), Mark Marenick (guitar/back up vocals), Rob Siraco (drums/back up vocals), Will Talamelli (bass)
