Mike Latini grew up performing his music in New York City and Boston. His immediately accessible music, engaging personal style and unique lyrical perspective enable him to ride the rails from the sublime to the ridiculous, and make all the stops in between. Mike’s storytelling is second to none. He recently released his fourth album titled “2020 Visions”, all songs written during the pandemic. His previous albums are “Ace LaVida”, “Ace Rides Again” and “Iron City”.

Dave Goldenberg is a satirical singer-songwriter who has opened for comedians Joan Rivers, Robert Klein, Judy Gold and Paul Reiser, along with such musical artists as Steve Forbert, Jill Sobule, Vance Gilbert and others in CT. His songs not only tickle your funny bone,but make you stop and take notice of some of the absurdities in our day-to-day lives. Dave’s music video “Goin’ to a Tea Party”was picked up by the Huffington Post and has been viewed by thousands on YouTube. He is a crowd favorite and will leave you laughing and smiling.

George Mallas has been writing and playing his piano-based songs since his teen years. George’s musical influences are some of the greats, such as Joni Mitchell, Jackson Browne and James Taylor. His melodic songs touch your heart strings on subjects of love, longing and redemption. George has released 3 full length albums, the latest his wonderfully received “Let the Day Decide” which features the co-writing of lyricist Melanie Berti. George also co- hosts a weekly Facebook Live music show featuring Singer/Songwriters.
