The Constitution State has a long and storied relationship with music

Bob Dylan was discovered at the Indian Neck Folk Festival in Branford in 1961, and New Haven's Five Satins rose to fame with their dulcet performance of "In The Still of the Night," as did home-state greats Moby, Rivers Cuomo of Weezer, and John Mayer.
