This may shock you, but I love quite the eclectic mix of music, and often love small unknown bands and independent musicians more so then main stream, and this Mid-state Pennsylvania band, Rivers' game plan for success is fairly simple: play anywhere and play often. Bars' clubs, fairs, loungers, coffeehouses, and even nursing homes they have played, just to get the music out there. The three-man band met playing at open mics around Carlisle PA...Percussionist Matt Sinkovitz found singer/guitarist/banjoist Vince Yarnell, and then Vince found Joe at a coffee shop playing his upright bass. That was about two years ago. Since then, the band has pushed itself to play out at least three times a week. I had the pleasure to see them by pure luck as they were in a pub I was in once, in Philly, and fell in love with their sound. Matt plays a variety of percussion instruments from a tambourine attached to his foot to shakers, and the whole thing is anchored by the cajon, a box that he sits on and hits with his hands. Joe plays upright bass and shares lead vocal duties with Vince who alternates between acoustic guitar and banjo. Rivers' sound can range from warm folk to rhythmic raps. They're very serious about playing music and about the business of running a band. This is my favorite of theirs....Outta My Head from our local PBS station.
