THE HAPPY FITS
GUITARIST AND CELLIST – THE POWER THAT IS MUSIC
SATURDAY, MAY 6 @ 7PM
$20 SUGGESTED DONATION
Guitarist Ross Monteith and cellist Calvin Langman began covering their favorite artists together in the fall of 2014. The idea of The Happy Fits did not begin until the spring of 2016 when Ross and Calvin started getting tired of covering other bands. One day in April, Ross played an original riff for Calvin and the two began working on a melody and lyrics in Ross’ loft in Pittstown, New Jersey. After writing their first song together, the originals kept on coming and the two started playing at local bars. The positive response from friends, families, and local fans inspired them to release their first EP, Awfully Apeelin’, in the August of 2016. In September 2016, their first single “While You Fade Away” made it to the #5 spot on the Viral Top 50 USA Chart and #17 on Viral Top 50 Global Spotify chart. In October 2016 following the success of the EP they were invited to play at a showcase for Atlantic Records in Times Square.
The Happy Fits’ music covers a wide array of genres including indie rock, alternative rock and folk. Their goal is to inspire positive social change through the power that is music, and, so far they have held benefit concerts for The American Cancer Society and The Family Promise of Hunterdon County, which seeks to house the homeless in their home county.
