The area rock scene is amazing... and all you have to do is go out and experience it.  We here at the Whale not only play classic rock, but we highly support and promote the efforts and creativity of local rock acts and artists.

One thing that you may not know is that Holly Dagger and myself are members of the Binghamton Rockers Group. Holly actually works in a recording studio, and I have been promoting local rock bands for years. And here's another band that you ought to go see!

Esquela, a band who members say are "a proud  purveyor of Bovina Rock sound."
The band sings about topics we can all relate to; war, politics, relationships and everyone's everyday life. Esquela is amazingly long in talent with original songwriting pushing forth a passionate rock sound with masterful lyrics that draws listeners in with a classic raw Americana Rock Sound.
Featuring John “Chico” Finn on vocals and bass, Rebecca Frame on vocals, amazing Brian Shafer on lead guitar, Todd Russell on vocals and drums, Matt Woodin playing mandolin and guitar, Ira McIntosh-Guitar, mandolin and banjo, and Keith Christopher on guitar and the music director, these guys rock the Deleware Valley.
