Immediately following the Labatt’s/Park Point Fest in the courtyard, the party continues inside with the The Mighty High & Dry!
With the influence of Rolling Stones, Black Keys, and Neil Young audible within their performances, The Mighty High & Dry’s sound shines through each song, rooted by Kyle Vock’s (mostly upright) deep-digging bass, Chris Teal’s dynamic and crisp drumming, and Alan Murphy’s guitar hooks and stylistically flexible voice. With lyrical tones that range from humanistic (“Here’s To The King”, “Trust Me Brother”), Dionysian (“Hangover Bridge”, “Shine”) to animalistic (“The Snake”, “Love and War”), MHD paints life’s adventure as an ever-unfolding mirror, which hangs over an altar with full bar. MHD’s self-titled debut album is scheduled for release in August of 2013 and boasts 14 tracks that resonate as wildly as the favorite rock albums from your past and future. Murphy’s song “Dam” has been chosen as a semi-finalist in the 2012 International Songwriting competition in the AAA category.
“Influenced by a veritable hall of fame list of rock musicians, this Rochester-based quartet is gaining some acclaim of their own. The Mighty High & Dry’s sound is rooted in soulful blues, but will surprise you with its ability to funk it up with the best of ’em. The grooves are infectious, the songwriting solid, and the musicianship workmanlike. It all adds up to Heartland Rock with an almost jazzy feel. The group is scheduled to release its self-titled debut album this May, and is already receiving critical praise.” – David Yockel, Jr. City Newspaper
