About the Acts

It was 29 years ago that Michael Glabicki left college to start a band. He spent two years creating his vision and learning the craft of songwriting. That vision soon became Rusted Root, the multiplatinum band out of Pittsburgh, and Michael became one of the world’s most unique voices. In many ways he is starting this process again by creating an entirely new sound landscape! This process has led to Glabicki’s new solo project, Uprooted! This band is bringing back parts of Rusted Root of old, including more percussion and more female vocals, as well as bringing it into a new place with new material. He will carry on playing Rusted Root’s entire catalog of music on tour with re-inspired versions, as well as continuing to bring new and exciting music under the new name of Uprooted. Members from the most recent touring band for Rusted Root (Dirk Miller- electric guitar, Zil Fessler- drums, Bobby Schneck Jr.-bass) as well as a new female singer, Daisie Ghost Flower will be joining as the backing band on this new adventure.

Vacation Daze is a new band quickly gaining fans by coloring a bright psychedelic soul-pop landscape via melodic hooks and deceivingly intricate song structures. Using late 70's new wave, jam and progressive elements as a sonic blueprint, VD’s songs are rife with sharp instrumentation, swooning vocal lines and introspective lyrics.

Based in Rochester, NY, the group was formed in late 2017 during a mellow weekend at a remote camp in the Adirondacks. Songwriters Ian Egling (keys/vocals) and Billy Martin (drums/vocals) made plans to collaborate on Ian’s ideas. Having played alongside Jim Dewitt (bass) and Sage Xavier (guitar) in various other acts, Billy knew exactly who would best compliment the songs.

Since forming a short time ago, Vacation Daze has played a number of local and regional shows and is growing. With three well received singles under their belts, Vacation Daze is currently in the studio recording their first full length LP to be released in late 2018.
