Members of Sweats are: (from left to right) Rob Kurcoba, JM Sincock, Tony Deluca, Nick D’Aloisio and Travis Durfee.

At 7 p.m. this Friday, June 24, the five-member band Sweats will perform a fun night of genre-spanning guitar-based rock and roll in the Coolidge Theatre in the Deane Center for the Performing Arts at 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.

Based in Watkins Glen, Sweats has established itself as one of the premier live bands of the Finger Lakes of New York, with a sound that brings summer vibes to every stage. Their bouncy rock and roll set includes covers as well as their original home-brewed tunes.

Sweats released their debut full-length album, "Caught in a Wave” in 2020 and are currently polishing tunes for a new album of originals they plan to release later this year. 

The band includes: Rob Kurcoba on bass; JM Sincock on drums;

Tony Deluca on keys; and Nick D’Aloisio and Travis Durfee, both on guitar.  Deluca, D’Aloisio and Durfee sing.

Durfee’s songwriting merges the diverse influences of his youth: outlaw country and 90s hip-hop, psychedelic indie rock and evocative 70s singer-songwriters.

Lead guitarist D’Alosio bends the strings to suit the song. His guitar snarls a sustained rage or sings a soothing melody, whatever the tune requires. His chops range from chunky riffs to gritty leads, all delivered with a deft ear for tone.

Sincock’s command of the kit started in the early years playing along with recordings of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers. Since then, he has been exploring a spectrum of rhythms that include the swinging shuffles of the Dead and Phish to the lock-tight rhythms of Hall and Oates.

Kurcoba draws inspiration through his deep roots in hip hop and jam bands. He has an active finger-style that evokes Floyd Pepper from Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem. Kurcoba’s melodic bass lines lay the foundations for many Sweats originals. 

Admission is $20. For tickets, call 570-724-6220 or visit or buy them at the door this Friday.
