Established in Boston in 2004, the Fenway Recordings Sessions is a regular concert series featuring a mix of established acts and the best new and developing indie artists playing the city's clubs along with occasional special guest DJs.

While standing behind a kick drum armed with a guitar and all kinds of attitude, Jordan Cook, a.k.a. Reignwolf, instantly captivates the crowd with his howling vocals, ferocious riffs, and raw energy. “He was all over the stage, driving the crowd into a frenzy, grinding sounds from his guitar with the back of his hand, the ceiling beams, the mic stand. His extended solos were soul-dripping, finger-flailing explosions that he looked like he could have done in his sleep," Todd Hamm of Seattle Weekly has written. Sean Jewell of The Stranger, wrote, “Shredding smoky half stacks and sweating out blues while trashing his own equipment is clearly what he's born to do."

Formed in early 2006, Township brings a sexy swagger back to rock 'n' roll, the likes not seen since the heyday of '70s classic rock bands Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, Grand Funk Railroad, and Bad Company. Marc Pinansky (vocals, guitar),  John Sheeran (bass, vocals), Alex Necochea (guitar, vocals), and Peter MacLean (drums) are the mighty Township. The band has won the WBCN Rock & Roll Rumble (2007), toured extensively with Electric Six, Bad Company, the Greenhornes and State Radio, and released five CDs, including 2011’s One More Summer. A new release is slated for late 2013. While some bands put on a vintage t-shirt and think that buys them cred, Township worships at the altar of all who came before them by turning it up, tearing it out, and not leaving the stage until the crowd is theirs.

DJ Carbo, a.k.a. Mark Kates, was a resident at one of L.A.'s electronica clubs, Atmosphere at The Viper Room, as well as on the legendary pirate station KBLT. He now hosts the Fenway Recordings Sessions in Boston.
