What could be better than a lazy Sunday afternoon with friends and beer, listening to live original blues and Americana music? Spreading out a picnic and maybe playing some Jenga? Maybe dance a little? Aeronaut has you covered!
After taking up songwriting in college, Prateek

Prateek was nominated for “Songwriter of The Year” at the 2018 New England Music Awards and “Singer-Songwriter of The Year” at the 2018 Boston Music Awards.
