    Striven is a hard rock band from Westchester, NY & CT featuring:

    Greg Capra (Rhythm/Lead Guitar & Vocals)
    Conor O’Leary (Drums)
    Steve Riccio (Bass)

    Established in 2011, they have remained true to their grunge-rock and heavy metal roots. The focus of Striven is to retain that style while also producing a new sound for a modern audience. The word striven means to struggle in opposition, to push through the boundaries of adversity and reach a desired goal. This is the reason why this band refers to itself as striven, as the band strives to push beyond the tests of life.

    Striven's main influences include:
    Alice In Chains, Black Label Society, Faith No More, and Megadeth, to name a few.
    Mary The Station
    Mary The Station
    Alternative Rock Band from New York, formed in February 2017. Inspired by an array of bands, Matt (Vocals) and Andrew (Guitar) started Mary The Station in their garage, writing songs and recording demos. High school friend Eric (Drums) quickly came on board, and soon after, the trio found Rich (Bass) who subsequently had been searching for a band. For the last year, Mary TheStation has been playing shows in the Tri-state area, and are excited to play Garcia's with friends "Striven."

    CHUGGA is a pummeling post-hardcore/rock Band based in Lower New York. Formed on by ex-Sick of It All bassist Richie Cipriano who switched to guitar to start the new project with drummer Dante Renzi, bassist Phil Gigante, and vocalist A.J. Chiarella of Shakeout from Yonkers, NY.

    The band's sound is filled with fuzzed-out riffs and a don't-give-a-fuck attitude. The slamming choruses aren't lightweight and the riff-heavy songs maintain a melody, sharing a sensibility with contemporaries of the day. The electrifyingly low-end, power and rage that accompany the lyrics is what makes CHUGGA stand apart from the pack.
