Project Description

Fast emerging hard rock renegades SAMSARA are primed to take over the northeast region this summer, with music and video releases plus huge performances scheduled throughout the NY, NJ, and MA areas – including shows at The Porch in Boston, Baby’s All Right in Brooklyn NYC and a return to the Great South Bay Music Festival on their homebase Long Island, NY in July. 


The music video for their song “In Too Deep” drops on 5/23/24, and their next upcoming single, “Alive“, is set to be released on 6/20/24.


Comprised of local New Yorkers from Queens and Long Island who base their time partly out of Boston, MA : Dylan Trif, (Lead Vocals), Charlie LoMonaco, (Guitar/ Background Vocals), John Devito, (Bass), Ben Bustamante, (Drums/ Background Vocals), and Brendan Sandhovel, (Rhythm Guitar) – SAMSARA draws their influence from several styles including grunge, funk, metal, and alternative. 


SAMSARA’s “alt sound” weaves in grunge with today’s modern rock. The band has received praise from professionals within the music community. In September of 2021, they came in 2nd place at the Tarrytown Music Hall’s “Rock The Hall”. Their music has received airplay on SiriusXM’s Channel 21, as well as different college radio broadcasts and local radio stations.


SAMSARA has played some of the most notorious rock venues in the tri-state area, a handful of regional music festivals and street fairs, and has worked with several seasoned professionals in the music industry. They have recorded extensively at Shelter Island Studios with Producer Steve Adobbo and with the iconic Gordon Raphael.


On Saturday July 27th at 5pm, join SAMSARA, The Kindergarten, Set Theory, Ryan Walsfich, Izzy Potter and more for a very special benefit concert fundraiser to support Ronald McDonald House at Nostalgia Bar in Bethpage, NY.
