Soulful Alt-Rock from Youngstown

CLICK HERE FOR FRIDAY’S SHOW

 

Why you should see this show…

The Vindys feature a blend of pop, jazz, and rock with soul influences. These red-hot up and comers from Youngstown have drawn comparisons to Amy Winehouse and cite Norah Jones, Jeff Buckley and Tom Petty as influences. Brad Savage, program director of The Summit 91.3 FM, explains, “To me, they really personify Youngstown and northeast Ohio. They’ve got depth and substance and are instantly likable. Their songs get stuck in your head after one listen.”
 

The Vindys Bio
The Vindys have become one of the most sought-after bands in the Northeast Ohio area with their unique blend of alt-rock that Cleveland Magazine says, “…reminds us of the Black Keys,” and “…make us want to dance, whether we’re in a grimy dive bar or a field in Lake County.” Their album, Bugs, is out now.

The Youngstown, Ohio based band is led by powerhouse singer-songwriter-guitarist Jackie Popovec who The Repository says “…uncannily evokes Amy Winehouse on the more retro songs while going full-tilt rock ‘n’ roll on the harder, moodier numbers.” WKBN-TV (CBS) calls the band “… one of the hottest acts in the area… Canfield’s Jackie Popovec — her voice is a blend of Amy Winehouse and Norah Jones.” The Beaver County Times boasts “…Popovec will grab you immediately. She sounds sweet and sultry, vulnerable and persevering.” Rounding out the band is John Anthony on guitar/harmony vocals, and Rick Deak on guitar/harmony vocals. All are classically trained musicians who combine their skills, Popovec as the primary songwriter, and arrangements by the band, resulting in a depth and maturity in their music that is intricate, yet relatable.

Because they are passionate about representing Youngstown as a place where the music scene is thriving. Their name pays homage to their roots by drawing influence from Youngstown’s daily newspaper, The Vindicator.

The band has performed at various festivals including WonderStruck, WonderRoad, Three Rivers Arts Festival, LaureLive, Winnetka Music Festival, and Summerfest where the band won the first day of the Emerging Artist Series selected by voters on Twitter. Additionally, The Vindys have shared the stage with Pat Benatar, Orianthi, The Drive-By Truckers, Judah & the Lion, Hunter Hayes, Reeve Carney, and more.

 

Huckleberry Funk Bio
Huckleberry Funk is a gritty Soul/R&B band based out of Indianapolis, Indiana.

Huck Funk has traveled the eastern circuit to cities and venues ranging from Rockwood Music Hall in New York, Reggie’s in Chicago, The Vogue and Hifi of Indianapolis, as well as other cities such as Philadelphia, New Orleans, and Boston. Their genre bending sound comes with a diverse audience affording them opportunities to perform on the mainstage of Wonder Road Festival, join bills with bands such as Twenty One Pilots, Ava Max, Doja Cat, Khurangbin, Dumpstaphunk, the Main Squeeze, and many others.

Huck Funk shows involve crowd participation, a tight sound, and sultry vocals. In this band, Funk itself is considered more of an attitude and feeling than it is a genre and always aim for that Funk to come across in the high quality, cohesive show structure brought to each audience.
