Two rising NY bands bring foot-stomping Americana fusion, new songs and crackling energy to Long Island's premier performance venue
Miles To Dayton and Spuyten Duyvil are two bands rising rapidly through the vibrant New York City music scene. On February 7th each band, led by their own respective husband and wife duos, brings tightly crafted songs, stellar musicianship and soaring vocal harmonies to the "Live In The Lobby" music series at The Patchogue Theatre as part of "Live in the Lobby #100", a 2-day gala celebration auspiciously marking the series' 100th performance.  The show will feature both bands alone and together in spontaneous moments of collaborative magic.

With Miles To Dayton music happens at a personal level.  Their music blends elements of folk, rock, classical, and funk into an irresistible invitation. The M2D recipe is simple: four-part vocal harmony, clever songwriting, improvisational violin and cello, and an infectious rhythm section that stirs up the creative stew.At the heart of their unique marriage of styles lies a real-life marriage: vocalist Krista Preddice and principal songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Jonathan Preddice, who proposed to Krista on the main stage at PTPA during their 2008 show. Having built a large grass roots following of fans young and old Miles To Dayton sold out The Boulton Center with notable gigs at the Paramount Theater, Great South Bay Music Festival and the NoFo Rock and Folk Festival.  They have shared the stage with the likes of The Subdudes, Leslie West, Jorman Kaukonen, Tom Paxton, Jen Chapin, Southside Johnny and The Asbury Jukes, Richie Havens and Amy Helm.

This is "music for the discerning listener who enjoys artistry that combines excellent musicianship intricate vocal stylings and articulate songwriting.  Miles to Dayton's live show is more than a concert...it is an event."  Norman Prusslin, WUSB-FM, founding General Manager

With Spuyten Duyvil (pronounced "SPITE-en DIE-vil"), every performance is a barn-burning romp through the last 100 years of American Roots music. Led by husband wife singing and songwriting team Mark Miller and Beth Jamie Kaufman, the band plays "an exuberantly original take on classic Americana that draws on influences from the 70s on forward, from outlaw country to newgrass to folk-pop... They’ve got a sense of humor, sizzling instrumental chops and catchy tunes." Delarue of New York Music Daily

Their appearance at the Patchogue Theatre follows a rockin’ 2013 tour featuring stops at The Philadelphia Folk Festival, The Falcon Ridge Folk Festival, Caramoor’s American Roots Music Festival, the Bethel Woods Performing Arts Center, The Huntington Folk Festival (headliner) and release shows for their new CD” Temptation” at NYC’s Rockwood Music Hall and the Ardmore Music Hall in Philadelphia. The New York Times describes their music asRaucous roots”.
Since it’s release in October, “Temptation” (http://www.spuytenduyvilmusic.com/p/music) quickly reached the #2 song and #7 album spots on the International Folk DJ Chart and broke in to the Top 20 of The Roots Music Report Airplay Chart Top 30 of the Roots 66 Airplay Chart. Spuyten Duyvil’s previous release, “New Amsterdam” (2011) received a “Top American Roots Album 2011” nomination from The Alternate Root TV and placement on a dozen radio DJ “Top Ten” lists.
