From a press release:

Locally created music social media app Tunefly will host its first official live event at The Other Side in Wilkes-Barre on Saturday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m.

The free show will feature up-and-coming bands Deaf Rhino, The Boneflowers, Rosary Guild, and Atherholt.

Tunefly will be giving out prizes at the event, and donations for the bands will be accepted.

New Jersey’s Deaf Rhino, who play “powerful rock and roll music with danceable grooves and soulful lyrics,” according to Electric City Music Conference co-founder Joe Caviston, recently started performing in the area, most notably at the 2016 conference, and have already left an indelible impression on the NEPA music scene.

The Boneflowers, a newly formed alternative rock act, debuted at the 2016 Steamtown Music Awards and are currently working their first EP, due out next year. Rosary Guild, another local band, will release their debut EP the night of the Tunefly event.

Atherholt is an indie folk band from Noxen that played a few times during Season 4 of NEPA Scene’s Got Talent with vocalist Samuel O’Connell, one of the creative minds behind Tunefly.

Tunefly is a mobile app that allows users to record and post original music, write reviews of the music they want to share, and keep followers updated through journal entries. It’s a great way to connect with people who share similar musical interests as well as get discovered by fellow music lovers. Tunefly aims to make the world of independent music accessible again, whether you are a professional musician, a kid in with a guitar, or simply a music lover.

TuneFly is a passion project designed, produced, and painstakingly created by two natives of Northeastern Pennsylvania. They are not backed by any major corporations or companies, hoping to bring the “social” aspect back to social media while connecting music lovers and inspiring creativity.

As presenting sponsors of the 2016 Electric City Music Conference, Tunefly officially released Version 2.0 at the conference in September, talking about the app during a panel discussion that is available to stream or download exclusively through NEPA Scene:
