Hudson Valley’s “The Big Takeover”, also joins the fray! The seven-piece

grandeur” says The Poughkeepsie Journal.
Brother & sister duo Auguste and Alden help kick-off the afternoon with their
roots/rock blend perfect for a Summer afternoon. Auguste (bass/vocals) and Alden
(guitar/vocals), has it all: brother Alden’s gravely tenor, sister Auguste’s seamless vocal
harmonies, solid drumming by Sean Lemkey (who also sings and plays guitar) has the
feel of a band that’s just starting to find its footing.
