It goes without saying that All Types of Kinds (ATOK) plays all kinds of music. Frequenters of the SoWa Open Market "stage," these musicians constantly WOW their audience. Whether it's 'Sitting By the Dock of the Bay' by Otis Redding, 'Lightning Bolt' by Jake Bugg, or an original tune, ATOK nails it.
The band came together three years ago when Billy met Ray at an open mic night in New York City. The two started busking and were soon joined by fellow band mates Berk and Rocco. Between the four of them, their talents include the harmonica, guitar, singing, percussion, and original songwriting. A crowd favorite, the band hopes to be touring full time within the year.
They're on their way to accomplishing this dream by opening for Gil Parris, Grammy - nominated rock, blues, jazz, and pop guitarist, on October 14th at the Yorktown Stage in New York. We can't wait to see where this band goes in the coming years!
