Breakaway is a band from New York that plays Original American Rock n Blues n Roll, plus some covers. We have played many venues and festivals here and in the area, including Nikon Theater at Jones Beach, BB Kings, The Shrine, Hogs and Heifers, Lizard Lounge, Cornelia St Cafe, The Boulton Theater, Riverhead Blues Festival, Cedar Beach Blues Festival, Port Jefferson Music Festival. As well as local favorites like The Stone Turtle, RS Jones, DJ Riders, BobbiQue, The Viking, just to name a few.
We were finalists in the 2009 New York/NJ Blues and Jazz Society Challenge, the 2005 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN and the 2005 Long Island Music Festival run by Goodtimes Mag. which said......."Mulcahy's became the house of Blues as Breakaway began their set. The five man unit turned heads immediately with opener "Look Around". Breakaway were perhaps the most seasoned and accomplished musicians in the line-up, as heavy Les Paul leads and three part harmonies put them someplace on the rock scale between Led Zeppelin and The Band"
We have shared the stage with Hubert Sumlin, Albert Castiglia, Alexis P Suter, Sam Taylor, Nicole Hart, Bennett Harris and have opened for The Doobie Brothers and Chicago.
Besides a full electric band we also gig as an acoustic duo billed as Acoustic Breakaway. Acoustic Breakaway has been playing monthly at RS Jones (www.rsjones.com) for over four years and still packs the house.
We can do everything from a single set to an all nighter.
