Black River Manifesto
Formed in Brooklyn in 2012, Black River Manifesto (formerly Black River Quartet) started out as a straight rockabilly/ blues band playing re-worked standards from the rootsier side of the rock-and-roll cannon. Changes of line-up ensued and the band quickly outgrew the limitations of the initial format and opted to pursue a tighter, more focused instrumental unit, embracing the compositional freedom the new model allowed.
Since then the band have been honing a heavier, punkier sound, placing their focus on live shows. They have become regulars on the NYC Dive Bar and DIY scene, have released one EP and performed a live radio session on Brooklyn based station The Indie Darkroom.
They have completed 2 East Coast tours with more booked throughout 2014, and their 2nd EP “Motorcity” is released in June 2014.
