Boston-based band Nor’easter delights in bringing infectious, uplifting music to dance floors throughout the country.

Waiting for the Snow

Our debut album Waiting for the Snow (2012) is available for online purchase in both physical and digital formats. Get your copy and support home-made music.

We’ve been wearing out your new Nor’easter CD, playing it over and over again. You folks did a wonderful job with this…. This is a really fun recording and I expect it’ll have a long and happy life with everyone who is lucky enough to discover it!
