Pesky J Nixon and Miles to Dayton
Sunday, June 25th, 5 P.M.
Celebrating WUSB’s 40th anniversary with the 200th concert in WUSB's Sunday Street Series
WUSB's Sunday Street Series presents two bands, who happen also to be very good friends, getting together for a great collaborative show on our stage which will benefit WUSB. They will be featuring songs heard on air during WUSB’s four decades of broadcasting for this very special event. The musical sparks will fly!
Pesky J Nixon (PJN) is a New England-based band who draw their influences from contemporary urban balladeers, rowdy southern bluegrass, and the sardonic yet wry wit of New England’s rick folk scene. Compelling harmonies and narratives reign with disparate instrumentation including zydeco style accordion, virtuoso mandolin, tribal percussion and a myriad of string instrumentation.

Miles To Dayton (m2d), a Long Island-based band, blends elements of folk, rock, classical and funk with four-part harmony, clever songwriting, improvisational violin and cello, and an infectious rhythm section. They have built a large grass roots following of fans who have flocked to their performances at venues like the Great South Bay Music Festival, the Boulton Center, the Patchogue Theatre and the Paramount.
