Huckleberry Binge is: Gage Lyons, Jad Quesada Khoury, Jonah Simonak and Will Meyer.
Huckleberry Binge is lucky enough to have an identity crisis. What began as a dingy folk duo at Hampshire College where guitarist Jonah Simonak and bassist Will Meyer were paying homage to their hometown heroes, The Felice Brothers, Huckleberry Binge mutated into a rock band with the addition of drummer Jad Quesada-Khoury and guitarist Gage Lyons. Mark Twain is on a three-day bender: recklessly emotional with huge opinions. Simonak, Meyer, and Lyons contribute three types of songwriting to one dynamic mess steeped in hazy roots rock and chaotic pop anthems. The songs are dancy and dirgy. They’re coming straight from the Northeastern United States - staring deep into the heart of America from swaying pine trees and regurgitating sonic commentary. Casting themselves into ageless megastorms, gazing from above through the "burnt out halls of the missile silos" for a clue. Best possible efforts from a bunch of “country-bred pop critters” (The Boston Counter Cultural Compass 5/30).
Huckleberry Binge has been found sharing the stage with Boston politico-rockers State Radio in a shimmery theatre or at home in a sludgy basement packed with local punks looking for a good tragicomedy. They share bills with local Pioneer Valley heroes And The Kids, Who’Da Funk It?, Young Tricksters, and Great Smokey as well as more Boston-area rockers Among Criminals, The Dig, Cult & Leper, and Noms drawing creatively and motivationally from the host of talent oozing out of Massachusetts.
Their recent efforts, along with producer Joshua Sitron, have resulted in a five song EP recorded onto ¼” tape - their snazziest product ever. Eternal salvation guaranteed or your money back within 34-99 business days.
