Cabinet is a band that has outgrown any “regional favorite” tag and has progressed to a broader fanbase, all while retaining their signature sound. The band has played many great venues and festivals (CMJ 11, SXSW 11 & 12, musikfest 10 & 11, Floyd Fest ’12, Peach Music Festival ’12, Philadelphia Folk Festival ’12 to name a few) across the land and has shared the stage with Yonder Mountain String Band, Allman Brothers, Pokey LaFarge, Yarn, Delta Rae, Zac Brown, Infamous String Dusters, Railroad Earth, Rusted Root, Hoots & Hellmouth, Blackberry Smoke, Hot Buttered Rum, Cornmeal, Dark Star Orchestra, Keller Williams, Hackensaw Boys, 7 Walkers, New Riders of the Purple Sage and many, many more.

When it comes to the music of Cabinet, the essential bywords are soul, simplicity, and serious musicianship. In concert, the combination of these qualities invariably yields an experience that is so celebratory and moving that the very word Cabinet takes on a new, vivid meaning for anyone in the audience. An inclusive and engaging energy is the uniting through-line as Cabinet weaves bluegrass, country and folk influences to powerful effect. Tight dynamics punctuate gorgeous, soaring harmonies as down-to-earth rhythm and lyrics give way to dreamy jams that are the musical equivalent of the back road scenic route. But this impressive result is no accident. Pappy Biondo [banjo, vocals], J.P. Biondo [mandolin, vocals], Mickey Coviello [acoustic guitar, vocals], Dylan Skursky [electric bass, double bass], Todd Kopec [fiddle, vocals], and Jami Novak [drums, percussion], all love and live music. They each have a nuanced approach and posses broad talents in their own rights. But the passionate, affirming, and joyous musical world that they create together is Cabinet.




New Orleans Soul Project

Digging deep into the soulful grooves dug by O.V. Wright and Wilson Pickett,the funky moves of James Brown and Maceo Parker, the old school cool of the Meters and The Neville Brothers, and the feel good fuel of the Crescent City itself, the Soul Project brings New Orleans soul with them wherever they go. Displaced by Hurricane Katrina, this group described as a “…hip group with horns…” spent 7 mo…nths building a following on the Jersey Shore and Tri-State area before returning to New Orleans to help and be part of the rebuilding process. They are planning to split their time between the two places and keep playing to as many people as they can while spreading the New Orleans culture and music wherever they can. Currently, the band is deeply rooted in the local New Orleans music scene. From Tipitina’s to Frenchmen Street, crowds amass for serious dancing and grooving. It’s always a party when the deep bass and drum pocket and bright horn, organ and guitar melodies shimmer on top. Current lineup consists of:
-Jon Cristian Duque, protege and alumni of the legendary Walter “Wolfman” Washington and the Roadmasters-guitar, vocals
-Will “The Deal” Repholz, prominent NOLA touring and session musician-electric bass, vocals
-David Ludman-New York raised but internationally trained in the school of jazz-saxophone
-Colin Davis, classically trained jazz musician, prominent live performance artist-drums
-Jeremy Habegger, European ex-pat, technically schooled in a fusion of international jazz and roots music- keyboards,vocals
