On Dec. 8, Grounds and Sounds welcomes Miles to Dayton. Having built a large grass roots following of fans young and old, Miles to Dayton has headlined performances at the Patchogue Theater and sold out the Boulton Center, with notable gigs at the Paramount Theatre, Great South Bay Music Festival and the NoFo Rock and Folk Festival. They've been the featured artist at the Acoustic Long Island Podcast and Summer Concert, and have performed in venues from NYC (The Living Room, Arlene's Grocery) to Montauk (The Stephen Talkhouse).
"A mix of folk, country and classical music, Miles to Dayton has a very polished sound reminiscent of Nickel Creek. Delivering four-part harmonies and improvisational violin and cello parts, Miles to Dayton is stacked with solid musicianship and is definitely worth checking out." Relix Magazine

“Miles to Dayton has the ability to blend folk, rock and progressive rock into a distinct sound that, while intricate in its form, seems effortless in the execution of its parts. It is this trademark infusion of acoustic and electric instruments that keeps their music full of contrasts and energy.” David Dircks, Host of AcousticLongIsland.com
