“Phoenix Best of Portland Nominee- Best Roots Act 2010” – Portland Phoenix
“Brian Setzer-style swing… fire-breathing lead guitar… a damn good band, more than a few smart turns of phrase, and an interesting contemporary turn on some long-standing forms of Americana: hopped-up rockabilly, syrupy country, swing, and Elvis-era rock and roll. Their first album, Full Tilt!, is nine songs and 30 minutes of prime material — all-killer, no-filler… ” -Sam Pfeifle – The Portland Phoenix
“Pete Witham & The Cozmik Zombies know how to have a good time. Their witty songs are backed by serious musicianship.” -Bethany Leavey – Ourstage: 50 States in 50 Weeks: Maine
“Despite finely crafted arrangements, rock-solid grooves and guitar riffs executed with razor-sharp presicion, Pete Witham and the Cozmik Zombies manage to conjure a sense of reckless abandon on the recording that demands a hearing in a live setting. Great show. Great record.” -Robert Sylvain – Gigafone Records http://www.petewitham.com/

BUILDER OF THE HOUSE AND NICOLE D’AMICO | SATURDAY, november 24, 2012 | 8PM.
BUILDER OF THE HOUSE: Rob Climitile has already established his own distinctive voice in the indie community. The band’s music, led and creatively driven by New England native, Rob Cimitile, is instantly-recognizable and easily-digestible due to Cimitile’s whispery voice mixed with a traditional folk group’s instrumentation, periodically including bluegrass instruments such as banjo and mandolin.
NICOLE D’AMICO: Nicole D’Amico is a singer/songwriter inspired by the movements of the 1960’s and the blues. She is always joined by a band of friends, whose accompaniment helps breathe life into her songs. Alex Martin lays down the groove, while the lovely Rachel Detroy sings the most fluid harmonies. Dave Yules is the perfect compliment to this ensemble, as he holds down the low end, and Zach Cohen rips deep wailing notes as he rocks on lead guitar. The Newest addition to the gang is Trumpet player, Ben Stein, an unstoppable horn player. Come experience the soulful voice and sounds of Nicole D’Amico and Friends.http://www.reverbnation.com/nicoledamico
