the Beardogz are a relatively new alternative/folk band from Northern RI. With musical backgrounds ranging from studies at the Berklee College of Music to long hours spent emulating the sounds of Van Morrisson and Joni Mitchell, each member of this dynamic group brings his own unique influence to the band, creating a fresh, 21st century take on folk.
String Powered Hard Rock. Bringing the violin and cello out of the concert hall since 2014, Little Known Alien creates their brand of instrumental rock using extended-range electric violin and cello, and have been winning fans with their energetic live shows in the Providence area after releasing their debut album, Little Known EP.
After performing locally, Little Known Alien has garnered support from area musicians and critics. Licks and a Promise was impressed enough to break with their primary focus of guitar-based bands to praise the group, “One of the opening acts was the unique electric violin-based local trio Little Known Alien. While Licks & a Promise is focused on guitar-based music, we feel that these guys are too good to ignore simply because there isn’t a guitar in the band.” Bill Ferri, formerly with local group Psychedelic Clowncar had this to say before the group’s first show: “Accompanying us on this explosive night, will be the menacing sounds of our good friends, LITTLE KNOWN ALIEN, a string trio of doom, born out of pure electric hellfire. Listen to this lineup: 7-string violin, 6-string cello and the driving, pulsing and earth shaking rhythms of the one and only, Mr. Kurtis Bento.”
