YAM YAM formed in late 2015, coming together from playing in an assortment of local bands in central PA. The band is inspired by 1970s soul music, New Orleans roots of jazz music, and modern/vintage funk and jam music. YAM YAM features raw instruments and captures a high-energetic sound. YAM YAM is Mike Dempsey on keys, Jason Mescia on saxophone, Xander Moppin on bass, Tom Fuller on guitar, and Tyler Fuller on drums.
The band released its debut, self-titled album in late 2018 and upon its release, it charted on Billboard Jazz Albums section at No. 17. The band has opened for Lotus, Dopapod, and Keller Williams among others and has been featured in NepaScene, LiveForLiveMusic, TheBurg, and Burg in Focus.
The band is currently finishing up its second album, preparing for a release in 2020/2021.
Blending funk, prog, jam, and anything else they feel like TrailHeads transcends genres. Formed on a lifelong bond of friendship the band has continued to thrive since their inception. After some minor lineup tweaks over the years they have finally culminated to bring you the sound you hear today. Once named “One of the best up and coming bands out of Pittsburgh, PA” by CBS, TrailHeads continue to bring their version of hard hitting and fast paced energy to crowds all across the country. TrailHeads is more than a band. TrailHeads is an experience.
By blending hues with psychedelic Rhythm & Blues, The Roof possesses a tonal duality that combines the Classic Rock era with soundscapes that reflect the sign of the times.
After meeting in 2015 at Penn State University, and honing their skill through DIY tours, dive bars, and makeshift mountain stages, the group has gained a dedicated following throughout Pennsylvania. The Roof has had the honor of opening for several notable acts such as Snail Mail, The Brook & The Bluff, Sam Burchfield, Cabinet, Moon Hooch, Rookie, The Clarks, and more.
