Ardvark Felon

Ardvark Felon is what you get when you jumble up Frank Velardo, both literally and figuratively.

The band does everything from typical bar/restaurant, showcase and festival gigs to more obscure artist collaborations and various situations. We play down at the Jersey shore quite a bit over the summer. We also play a lot of weddings, though, we are not a wedding band. We're a real band that hangs out and plays original music. When we play weddings and parties, we whip out the covers! We have a great list of oldies, classic rock, 80's, 90's and contemporary hits that always get the crowd dancing! We're entertainers. We have fun and it shows.

Because of our training, we're very fast to learn new music and communicate on a high level. We've been hired to back up other artists that need a band for live performances, and in the studio. We're a very versatile band because we're all full time musicians, and in this day and age you have to be able to do it all to get by.... until the single hits the charts!

Many of our biggest influences approached playing in the same way. The Beatles and the Rolling Stones started out as cover bands and slowly introduced their own material. The Grateful Dead and also Phish are also great examples of bands that mix-up covers and originals very well. It becomes more about the experience and the music that is made in the moment than who the original composer was.

Luke Redfield

In a world caught up in quick fixes and instant gratification, the music of Luke Redfield serves as a great alternative. Here you'll find albums to be enjoyed in their entirety—from track 1 to 10—preferably while sipping a nice glass of whiskey in front of a cozy fire, driving along Highway 1 with the windows down, or out walking around your neighborhood in an ethereal dusk.

Integrating elements of classic folk, indie rock, and alt-country, Redfield's songwriting explores the human condition through themes of love and landscape, adventure and inquiry—inviting all who listen to join in the dance of life.

Called "Soulful," "A talented gent," and “Playful like a young Bruce Springsteen,” Redfield has been featured by A.V. Club, American Songwriter, Daytrotter, Elmore Magazine, KCMP 89.3 The Current, and more, receiving attention for his Americana atmospheres and and poetic lyrics.

Touring the US and Europe, Redfield has shared the stage with Marissa Nadler, Cory Chisel, Gregory Alan Isakov, Hayes Carll, BJ Barham, Kyle Craft, and more, while his records feature members of Bon Iver, Peter Wolf Crier, and Andrew Bird's band.

Redfield's newest release, Love is All Around, is available now on Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, and Bandcamp.
