My name is Howie from the Band Breakaway, we are band from New York and have played many venues and festivals here and in the area, including Hogs and Heifers, Lizard Lounge, Cornelia St Cafe, The Boulton Theater, Riverhead Blues Festival, Cedar Beach Blues Festival, Port Jefferson Music Festival.
We were finalist in the 2005 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, TN and made the finals of 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, sharp harmonica solos 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, Sam Taylor, Nicole Hart, Bennett Harris and many more.
Besides a full electric band we also gig as an acoustic duo billed as Acoustic Breakaway. We can do everything from a single set to an all night blues fest.
