Tao Seeger

Music is in his blood. Fusing the folk styles of his family heritage with contemporary Rock-n-Roll, Tao Rodriguez-Seeger’s music breaks all barriers of traditional folk bringing a unique and distinctive sound to the table. Born into a musical family in Poughkeepsie, New York, Tao is the eldest grandchild of folk singer Pete Seeger.  Tao spent his childhood in Nicaragua where his father was a war correspondent, making documentary films about the Sandinista revolution.  With little access to pop music in Nicaragua, Tao cherished his AC/DC and Metallica cassettes along with the two tapes he had of his grandfather’s music. Here began the merging of rock and folk music that would come to influence Tao in his musical career.
 
Tao was the co-founder of the folk/rock groups RIG (Rodriguez/Irion/Guthrie), The Mammals and is the founding member of his new band the Tao Seeger Band.  The Tao Seeger Band includes Tao singing lead vocals, playing electric guitar and banjo, Laura Cortese on fiddle and vocals, Jake Silver on bass, Jefferson Hamer on guitar and Robin MacMillan on drums.  Their music can be described as a fusion of rock and folk with a “rootsy and psychedelic” sound.  The newly formed band has performed at an impressive lineup of events including the 2009 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Newport Folk Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival and The Clearwater Concert: Creating the Next Generation of Environmental Leaders at Madison Square Garden where they stood in as the evening’s house band.  Together they have also toured throughout the northeast and Denmark and recently hit the road for an east coast tour in late 2009. Their debut album Rise and Bloom came out in April of 2010.

Rosewood Ghosts
Rosewood Ghosts

Rosewood Ghosts is an original post classic rock band from Hoboken, NJ. Born from six musicians who grew up listening to their parents record collections, they have forged a sound that evokes the spirit of classic bands like The Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin & The Beatles, as well as contemporaries like Wilco, Pearl Jam & The Black Crowes, all while spawning a unique creative direction of its own. With such a wide range of influences, their self proclaimed genre and catch phrase – Post Classic Rock: Music from the people who bought the records of the people who brought you classic rock – is their best known sonic identifier.
