About PA Line:
Inspired by grassroots, infused with soul, born from the indie scene. The sound of PA Line proves that in the current musical world of repetition and catchy leads, music can still hit you in the heart. By combining dedication and raw talent, Trever Stribing (Lead vocal/Guitar/Percussion), Lucas Honig (Vocal/Bass), Pat Brown(Banjo/Vocal) & Ryan Howze (Vocal/Special Percussion/Instrumentation), have made a unique brand of alternative-folk music.

Hailing from Buffalo, NY, PA Line brings a unique, harmony-packed, funky, Folk-Rock, world sound, that has been described as Mumford & Sons meets Rusted Root. Touring extensively through the U.S., Canada, & the U.K., PA Line is gathering quite the name for themselves.

Playing large events such as The NYC Marathon, Watkins Glen International Raceway & opening up for acts such as Rusted Root, Iron & Wine, Floodwood, & Rumpke Mountain Boys, they are hitting the road in 2018 to support their full-length release, Peace Always. You never know what will happen at a PA Line show. Get your dancing shoes on, it surely will be a night not to forget.
