Ice Cream Social was started in Rochester, NY on Cinco De Mayo, 2018. When guitarist/vocalist Beau Ryan drummer Joshua Lowenberger and bassist Mike N Ez put a set together to fit a bill at the Angry Goat Pub in Rochester's South Wedge. Over the course of the show the band adopted over thirty different band names, assuming a new identity before the start of each song. In the end the name "Ice Cream Social" was chosen as the crowd favorite and the band has kept the name since. Ice Cream Social plays electric and acoustic covers of popular songs from 60's era bands like the Beatles and Rolling Stones up to modern hits from acts like Jack Johnson, Black Keys, Foo Fighters and more.
