ABOUT THE PERFORMER
Formed at the beginning of 2014, Junkyardfieldtrip was originally put together as a songwriting vehicle for Mike Gladstone and Rob Smith. After adding one of western NY’s top rhythm sections (Emmett Ientilucci and Don Torpy), the band started playing acoustic shows around the Rochester, NY area. Eventually the band started writing and playing more electric material. Over the last few years, Junkyardfieldtrip has quickly become one of the region’s most in-demand, eclectic bands, being nominated by City Newspaper’s Best of Rochester award for best band. In the summer of 2017, the band played the prestigious Fairport Music Festival. In March 2018, the band signed with Spectra Records and will be touring to support the record.
Don Torpy – bass
Emmett Ientilucci – drums/percussion/vocals

As of today, we are being advised by the Monroe County Health Department that we will be unable to hold the 2020 Rochester Lilac Festival during the originally planned timeframe of May 8th -17th. As you can imagine, this is painful for all of us. However, we are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to reschedule.
As time progresses, and more information is known, we’ll be letting you, our valued Festival participants and attendees know if, and when we plan to reschedule the Festival.
Hang in there and stay healthy.
Your Rochester Lilac Festival Team
