Original roots/rock/pop straight outta Newton MA. Some tasty cover songs, too! Featuring members of The Spicolis, Powderhouse, The Rotary Prophets, Miss Ellaneous and Spaces for Two.
Dave Finney and the Procrastinators are a roots/pop/rock band from Newton MA. The band's roots go back to March of 2018, when singer-songwriter Dave Finney released a 5 song EP of his original songs (available on Bandcamp). Recorded at Woolly Mammoth Sound in Waltham, MA, the EP featured some of Boston’s top session players, including Russell Chudnofsky, Dave Westner and Josh Kantor. When it was time for Dave to put together a band to play shows, he hooked up with 3 members of the long-running Boston rock band Powderhouse - Ray Boyce (bass), Fred Pickard (guitar) and Steve McDonough (drums) - and The Procrastinators were born. Looking to expand their sound, the Procrastinators recruited multi-instrumentalist Linas "Casey" Jauniskis to join the band in the fall of 2021. New drummer Guy Seeley came on-board in early 2022.
The Procrastinators' live performances not only showcase Dave’s original songs, but also fun, under-the-radar cover songs. The band are ready to play your bar, club, function, theatre, or and can customize a song list to satisfy any crowd, venue or set length. For example, the Procrastinators can play up to 3 sets of originals and covers (usually a 50/50 mix), but can also play a "Showcase" set of just original material. The band's debut EP, delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, was finally released in May of 2021 and is now available on Bandcamp, Spotify, Apple Music, YouTube, iTunes and all major streaming and download platforms. The Procrastinators are planning on releasing new music (featuring their new line-up) in the first half of 2022.
