By popular demand they’re freckling the Northeast together in venues large and small. Whether for the thousands at festive Maplewoodstock, the hundreds at cozy SOPAC and community fundraisers, or the dozens upon dozens at local clubs and house shows, the STUFF BROS live sound keeps people moving and spirits flowing.

Marry the Sea: The soaring vocal power of Marry The Sea delivers timeless messages of love and empowerment from the landscape of our modern world. Their original compositions, pitch-perfect harmonies, and brilliant acoustic interplay of guitars and violin transform listeners, while upright bass and drums further expand their inspiring sound.
