Touring band bios here:

Rochester, NY alternative ska/rock outfit Mrs. Skannotto is a band that's hard to classify. Their distinct sound reflects the eclectic musical backgrounds and styles of each band member.

Vocalist Joe Harmon explains, "We spend a lot of time trying to explore the boundaries of what genres like ska, reggae, rock and punk can do, mixing in elements of jazz, funk, and classic and progressive rock. We all have a wide range of tastes and influences, and bring those influences in to the writing process and our performances.”

Originally formed in 1998, the current lineup has been together for 4 years. The band's commitment to touring has kept them on the road for much of that time, and it's paying off. Harmon says, "We've learned a lot about playing and writing with one another since this lineup first came together. We keep getting tighter as time goes on."

Mrs. Skannotto is currently holed up in the studio at Hope Alive Media in Farmington NY, where they are reuniting with audio engineer Matt Goodwin and sound mixer Matthew Saccuccimorano, who they worked with on last year's 'Outlier' LP.

When pressed for hints as to what fans can expect from the new record, bassist Dan Carter says, "I'd say the focus will be on tight compositions, and further developing new ground explored on the last album. The music itself is different. We keep evolving musically."

May Weather hails from western Maryland. Since 2008, they have been quickly gaining a respectable following and presence in the music scene. With two album releases, hundreds of shows under their belts across eleven states, and endless determination, the band shows no sign of slowing down. The influence of ska, rock, jazz, metal, and everything in between is very evident in their unique style of music. May Weather has played with nearly 1000 different bands most notably Big D and the Kids Table, Ballyhoo, The Pietasters, The Slackers, The Snails, Survey Says!, The Toasters, Spoken, and I, The Breather. Both of the bands albums "This is Almost and Album" and "Your Life on Optimism" have received countless praise from music critics and professional musicians alike. Most notable praise has come from music promoter, reviewer, and blogger, Ska Lives (a division of Indie Vision Music) as well as Leanor Till (Jeff the Gurl) from Five Iron Frenzy, Karen Roberts (former lead singer of Chase Long Beach), and Matthew Stewart of Streetlight Manifesto who wrote, "I loved the EP. Ska is still alive, and it lives in Maryland." May Weather's live show has been praised as one that is unique, highly energetic, and fun for people of all ages
