Diane and The Gentle Men
Diane Gentile is a songwriter, singer and guitarist. The Gentle Men are Colin Brooks on drums, Matt Basile on bass and a few rotating guitarists - Jason Victor, Hammar Sing and Mike Fornatale. The band released a single on Velvet Elk Records titled "Motorcycle" (produced by Steve Wynn of the Dream Syndicate) that was "Coolest Song in the World" on Little Steven's Underground Garage channel on Sirius Satellite Radio and received 12 weeks of heavy airplay. Her duo project with guitarist Alfonso Velez toured the UK as support for Jesse Malin and Don Dilego and the Touristas. Diane and the Gentle Men have opened for Richard Lloyd (Television), LAMF, Alejandro Escovedo, Hollis Brown, Steve Wynn, Tommy Stinson, Palmyra Delran (The Friggs), and played on bills with a host of other great bands like Lulu Lewis and Steve Conte. Diane has guest appeared with Tommy Stinson at the Bell House in Brooklyn, NY, at City Winery in NYC for 2 sold out nights for the T-Rex Tribute show and at the Bowery Ballroom in NYC for The Positive Panther Benefit with Jesse Malin. The band performed in Tompkins Square Park in NYC for Howl Festival.

"Diane Gentile is a sort of younger New York counterpart to the Motel's Martha Davis. She pus her own individualistic spin on the dark side of propulsive '80's new wave, and her band is killer." (New York Music Daily, May 2016).

The video of "Motorcycle" debuted on PancakesandWhiskey.com.

Radiator King
"Somewhere between punk and blues – a porch and an alley – lies Radiator King, the performing/recording name of Boston native and Brooklyn based, Adam Silvestri. Established in 2011, Radiator King’s music shows influences from both Dylan and Strummer with a sound described by Boston blog Allston Pudding as something akin to what “Tom Waits locked in a room for a month with nothing but a copy of Springstein’s Nebraska” might produce. Whether alone with a guitar or backed by a band, Radiator King embodies the raw energy of punk, the grit and intricacy of delta blues, and the lyrical potency of folk in “songs that are the sonic equivalent to an old whiskey bar at the end of a dirt road.”
