Shane Scarazzini & EightFingers
The Buttonwood Tree Performing Arts & Cultural Center – EightFingers began with a flame in the heart of a young man – a working Nashville guitarist with a black cat bone, seeking redemption. This dream manifested into a band of brothers, not by blood, but by the power of music! EightFingers is a soul driven, southern charmed, dynamically expressive trio from the tri-state area of New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey. From psychedelic guitar sounds calling upon the thunder of Hendrix, to sweet crying blues a la BB King, to deep crooner vocals reminiscent of Ol’ Blue Eyes, EightFingers delivers a soulful rendering of a heart on fire. The group debuted on March 10th, 2017 at the Alley Cat Blues & Jazz Club in Kingston, NY, and was immediately loved by all who stepped into the club. Passersby took notice of the high energy and emotional drive of the show, and before the next month was over, EightFingers was picked up and placed in Time Warner Cable Studios to film “Mallet’s Place TV,” broadcasting the band to nearly a million people across the country. EightFingers is constantly at work behind the scenes; writing, recording, and priming for a busy and fruitful future. Shane Scarazzini & EightFingers : a band built on friendship and making the world a more musical place!
