If Radiohead opened a lounge at the top of Niagara Falls, hired Beck as the senior bartender and had a two-for-one hip hop night where Portishead went home with Incubus, the love child would be Host Echo.
Consisting of a classical guitarist, a jazz vocalist and multi-instrumentalist, a rock bassist and a soul drummer, their original live set is a passionate mix of electric earthquakes and chill trips to outer space. Their classic set is upbeat Motown, British and Psychedelic Rock.
Performing throughout the Great Lakes, Northeast and Middle-Atlantic, Host Echo independently tours West to Chicago, East to Boston and South to D.C., engaging every small town along the way. In Fall of 2009 the band organized a forty-date tour across twelve states. They are currently cultivating that circuit while expanding into the Southeast via Nashville and cross-country to the Pacific Coast.
Performances at some of the most prestigious regional events in Western New York:
-"Thursday at the Square" in downtown Buffalo, NY
-"Music is Art" held in Buffalo, NY
-"Tuesday in the Park" at Artpark in historic Lewiston, NY
-Residency at Shadow Martini Bar in Niagara Falls, NY, weekly for fifteen months.
Events organized by Host Echo raise funds for the Niagara Arts & Cultural Center, a non-profit community coalition of artists and home to the band's own studio.
Additional benefit shows include:
-Domestic violence awareness
-Construction of a Peoples, Inc. respite house
-Hurricane Katrina survivor relief
-Niagara Falls Firefighters Christmas Toy Fund Telethon
Studio albums include Be Water (2005), Song Cycle (2008), Puzzle People (2011) and Final Battle (2014).
Their music is placed in film and television, most recently in a LiveNF commercial for Niagara Falls Community Development. Radio airplay is heard on 107.7 fm Alternative Buffalo and 91.3 fm WBNY.
"Host Echo impressively managed to find the common elements among a handful of disparate musical influences to create a singular and quietly potent sonic entity."
-Brian Baker, Amplifier Magazine
"Not just studio wizards, Host Echo puts on a great live show as well with great improvisations and musicianship." -Bob Silvestri, Best of WNY.com
