Band of Natural Selection

 East Hampton, New York, USA

Natural Selection is a folk-rock band made up of talented and experienced musicians. We just got back to the Hamptons from New York City, and we are excited to share our music with you. We hope you like our original music, as well as some of our carefully chosen covers to pay tribute to the greats.


The Band of Natural Selection plays original music that evokes feeling and emotion. We also play some great covers, since great songs are great songs. Some of our influences are Springsteen, Dylan, and Pink Floyd.

Recently, The Band of Natural Selection opened up for Suzanne Vega at the famous Stephen's Talkhouse in New York, played the WEHM Rock Art Show and Benefit in the Hamptons, the Connecticut State Fair, and is an annual mainstay in front of thousands at the Tunnel to Towers Run in New York City honoring the fallen heroes of September 11th.

Natural Seleciton has also opened up for Suzanne Vega, Mark Cohn, Richie Havens, Marshall Crenshaw, Blue Oyster Cult, and headlined alongside the late Jeff Healy in Toronto. World renowned musicians including Tony Levin, Vernon Reid, Dave Brown, Duke Levine, Dave Mattacks and other greats all appear on The Band of Natural Selection's albums.
