Marshmellow Overcoat – Sat. Aug. 24 @ 10pm

In 2008, singer and songwriter Tyler Calkins set out to create a sound reflecting the songwriting techniques of the sixties and seventies, while also utilizing modern and contemporary rock aspects. Over the years Tyler’s unique rhythm guitar style and vocals have made him one of the most sought-after performers in the Southern Tier. Having achieved a masters degree in music performance from Pennsylvania State University and in pursuing a doctorate, Tyler’s knowledge in music, songwriting and performance is growing each day. Backed by his band, Marshmellow Overcoat, Tyler has five records under his belt including a new Self-Titled LP, Marshmellow Overcoat, released in January of 2017.

Marshmellow Overcoat currently features Alan Hancock and Anthony Cavallaro alongside Tyler. Based out of Bradford, Pennsylvania, Tyler & Marshmellow Overcoat perform most often in Western PA and NY State. With over 200 original and cover songs in its repertoire and several decades of combined experience, the band keeps people dancing, singing, and entertained show after show – Making it the hottest band in the Twin Tiers. MMOC’s music and professional equipment fits almost any occasion. Tyler is also available for acoustic gigs and plays with Second Act.

*The name “Marshmellow Overcoat” is from “The Last Waltz,” a film documenting the final performance from “The Band.” During the movie, Richard Manuel, lead singer and pianist for The Band mentions that Marshmellow Overcoat was a possible name early on for the group. Therefore, the name Marshmellow Overcoat was chosen in tribute to The Band. MMOC’s first blog goes into more detail about it.
