Call it Amityville Unplugged. Seven Long Island artists will go back to basics Wednesday, Sept. 27, for an acoustic show at Revolution Bar & Music Hall in Amityville.

Here are the acts featured on the bill:

NICK MULLADY

AGE 20

HOMETOWN Smithtown

MUSIC STYLE Alternative rock

From the band Aron Street, Mullady is the singer and rhythm guitarist serving up originals like “Lazy,” “Johnny” and crowd favorite “Undertow.” The band, which gigs at 89 North in Patchogue and Kaminski Park bar in St. James, is getting ready to drop its debut EP, “It’s Your Fault.”

“I’m a pretty mellow, laid-back guy,” Mullady says. “But I love the energy from the crowd.”

LUCY HALL

AGE 24

HOMETOWN Bayville

MUSIC STYLE Alternative pop

Hall can be found playing hip places like the Secret Loft in Greenwich Village or Tilt Bar in Brooklyn. Her inspirations vary from Amy Winehouse to Led Zeppelin. She sings, plays guitar and even raps on original songs like “On Top,” then shows her softer side on “Anything at All.”

“I really love engaging the audience,” says Hall, who is releasing an EP before Christmas. “I’ve been working on writing simpler songs to have them sing along.”

LEXY CASSELL

AGE 15

HOMETOWN Dix Hills

MUSIC STYLE Pop rock

Even though she’s a sophomore at Half Hollow Hills West, Cassell finds time to gig at the Jones Beach Bandshell, the Nutty Irishman in Farmingdale and 89 North in Patchogue. Artists like Avril Lavigne and Billy Joel influence her songwriting, and her edge comes from her skateboarding hobby. She even co-wrote her song “Original” with “American Idol” star Robbie Rosen.

“I love the hype of a live show,” says Cassell, who plays with guitarist Luke Santora. “The last time I played, I got so excited I jumped offstage!”

PERIMETER

AGES Singer Marc Cheshire, 23, and guitarist Justin Yu, 20

HOMETOWNS Holtsville and St. James

MUSIC STYLE Alternative metal

Perimeter is all about stretching beyond the boundaries of metal with pop-style vocals.

The band will perform originals such as “Stay,” “Visions” and “Sleepwalker,” along with a covers mashup of Ed Sheeran hits “Don’t” and “Give Me Love” with Macklemore’s “Thrift Shop,” “Let It Go” from “Frozen” and Charlie Puth’s “Attention.”

“Onstage, it’s all about entertaining,” Cheshire says. “We like to experiment on acoustic and give people something they’ve never heard before.”

KATE VAN DORN

AGE 22

HOMETOWN Sayville

MUSIC STYLE Alternative country

Van Dorn’s taste is all over the board, from blues artists Robert Johnson and Beth Hart to country classics Hank Williams Jr. and Merle Haggard, plus ’90s alternative rockers Radiohead thrown in for good measure. She can be found performing at venues like The Lounge at The Space at Westbury, Johnny McGorey’s Pub in Massapequa, Connolly Station in Bay Shore and Fulton’s Gate in Patchogue.

Her set list mixes originals like “Sweetalker,” “Foolish,” “Drag Me Through Hell” and “This Train” with covers such as Nancy Sinatra’s “These Boots Are Made for Walkin’,” Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” and Bill Withers’ “Ain’t No Sunshine.”

“Sometimes I get so lost in the music onstage, I forget people are there,” Van Dorn admits.

KAYLA MURO

AGE 18

HOMETOWN Lindenhurst

MUSIC STYLE Alternative pop

From the band Oceanus, Muro wrote her first song, “Can’t Shake This Feeling,” after experiencing her first heartbreak. The singer-guitarist draws inspiration from artists like Paramore, Stevie Nicks and Ed Sheeran and often plays at open-mic night at Babylon Bean Coffee House.

“Being onstage and expressing myself is rewarding,” says Muro, who will play with guitarist Austin Hennings. “It’s one of the best feelings in the world.”

DANNI CHRISTIAN

AGE 26

HOMETOWN Smithtown

MUSIC STYLE Indie folk

Playing guitar, foot tambourine and harmonica while singing, Christian delivers originals “Drowning in the Taste of Your Blood” and “Who Are We?” with pure passion.

“I want everyone in some way to be able to relate to my songs,” says Christian, who regularly plays the Velvet Lounge in East Setauket and Portside Bar & Grill in Port Jefferson. “Even if it has nothing to do with what I’m singing about, it has something to do with what they are feeling.”

‘ACOUSTIC NIGHT’

WHEN | WHERE 5:30 p.m. Wednesday Sept. 27, Revolution Bar & Music Hall, 140 Merrick Rd., Amityville, 18 and older.
