"'Rabbit in the Rye' was one of my favorites of the night, not only for their diversity of sounds and originality of lyrics, but also because they seemed to be right on par with the likes of 'Bon Iver' or 'Fleet Foxes'."

    Rabbit in the Rye is a progressive folk rock trio from Hamilton NY, Joseph Mettler (guitar, harmonica), Alexander Lavon (bass), & Brendan O’Connor (percussion, mandolin). “...The band straddles the line between quintessential American folk and contemporary blues with a superb mix of proverbial lyrics, pounding bass lines and creative drum beats that will keep you tapping your feet. Switching between acoustic and electric sets, the band has a sound that feels original, yet familiar at the same time. It is hard to ignore the unique presence the band has on stage as they sway and dance to the energy of their own creation...” –Colgate Maroon News
