Drawing from every corner and decade of America's musical landscape, Upstate Rubdown has been described as a "hurricane of sound".
The unique instrumentation includes mandolin, cajon, upright bass, and alto/baritone saxophone, all fronted by a powerhouse of 3-part female vocal harmony. The band can land perfectly in any setting, from intimate house concerts to prominent festival stages. The material is innovative and forward thinking, but never at the expense of a great hook or a solid groove. Upstate Rubdown plays music to move your body and soul.
