Hudson Valley, NY based NEQ puts instrumental exploratory electric spacey americana, jazz grooves and more on the table.

A perennial favorite at the U Club under the name of "Todd Nelson Trio" - the band is launching a new recording with a new name - Nelson Esposito Quintana, or NEQ if you're pressed for time or trying to keep your tweet under 144 characters.

NEQ plays original songs and original arrangements of unusual covers of any genre signified by the muse. Improvisational but not noise; exploratory in texture and sound but melodic; arranged but open-ended; structured while embracing the random; aware of the past without repeating it; unafraid of space, subtlety or beauty, and they rock. Todd Nelson - Guitar, loops and textures, Kyle Esposito - Fretless bass, Manuel Quintana - Drums, percussion and sfx.

Metroland calls local guitar hero (and Hudson/Park neighbor) Todd Nelson “a preternaturally tasteful guitar player…” 

On the first Friday of each month, as part of the University Club’s celebration of 1st Friday, one need not be a member to enjoy live music in the Grille Room, dress is casual, and cash and major credit cards are accepted. Dinner served until 9 p.m., call 518-463-1151 for reservations.
