“The name Not Quite Einstein came as a result of a brainstorming session where we had over a hundred possible names. The band members voted and whittled the list down to a few then with just a few tweaks, we decided that Not Quite Einstein was the best. I guess that gives an indication of just how BAD the other choices were.” – Todd Grundon
Not Quite Einstein or the Einstein Band (as some people call us) is a variety band based in Central PA, whose goal is to provide top-notch entertainment. We are seasoned veteran musicians who came together from many different paths to form a variety band. With a wide variety of musical selection, we can cover music from all formats and genres.
The band has been in existence since 2000.
Hexbelt has the ability to cut across political, social, and economic boundaries to reach the masses. A peer in a crowd at a Hexbelt show would reveal a cross section of society, with baby boomers, neo-hippies, punks, blue collars, yuppies and the like; all jamming together as one.
Hexbelt truly is a unique band in an age of increasingly generic modern music.
Matheny, on the heels of 2017’s Strange Constellations LP and last spring’s EP “Moon Over Kenova,” is a breakout voice in country-rock, and keeps on proving it. The B-side of the new single, “Christian Name,” manages to turn variations on a theme into three or four distinct hooks, any one of which would have been enough for most songsmiths to hang their hat on. Tom Petty is in there somewhere beneath the world-weary country-rock exterior, but so is the dark-tinged bluesy folk of Lucinda Williams.
For some, Matheny’s tribute to Centro-matic will represent a nostalgic trip; for others it may be an entrée into the music of both Misra mainstays. The thing is, either way, it’s a pair of tracks worthy of play on repeat: Two gems with equal parts twang and tremolo, clever riffs and thoughtful words, delivered with deceptive ease.
