MisterF1

Starting a touring-ready band from scratch and instantly hitting the road is a tough thing to do, but it seems to be working for Mister F. Formed in 2013 from members of Timbre Coup and Capital Zen, these young guys from Upstate NY have already brought their fresh blend of fusion and funk to 19 states across the country. By year’s end, Mister F will have played  over 200 shows as a band, with 141 of those gigs falling in 2014 alone. A busy festival season, filled with events like Hudson Project, Catskill Chill, and Mantrabash (to name a few) paired with opening slots for Snarky Puppy, Toubab Krewe, Conspirator, Dopapod, and  Consider the Source, have really contributed to the buzz surrounding this group. 

Let’s Be Leonard first met as students at Schenectady County Community College in the fall of 2013. Various members of the group played together in a variations of different outfits until they all came together early in the spring of 2014. Their music is influenced by many different genres, including Jazz, Jam Band, Reggae, Blues, Psychedelic Rock, and R&B. Their music as a whole may best be described as “Definitely something I could drink a beer to.”

Arc & Stones is a New York City born, Nashville based band that brings an old soul to a new sound in the re-emerging world of true rock & roll. Founded in September of 2012, and comprised of members Dan Pellarin (lead vocals, guitar) and Joe Doino (drums), Arc & Stones brings with them a tantalizing array of hard-hitting songs that have a depth and a soul that feels much more seasoned than their 3 short years as a band.

BigMeanSoundMachine2014

Conceived during a lake house recording session in the summer of 2009, Big Mean Sound Machine formed in Ithaca, New York with one goal: to create music that stimulates both Body AND Mind. Today, BMSM’s collective of over a dozen analog artists spread out over the East Coast United States bring together the musical languages of West Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean and North America to create a lush bed of rhythm and melody that embraces even the most hardcore fans of both Traditional Funk and Avant-Garde Jazz – and everyone in between. Anyone who has witnessed Big Mean Sound Machine live knows that their performances are among the heaviest and the sweatiest. Those familiar with BMSM’s studio releases also know that the band can refine that complex sonic force with unique style and clarity. Big Mean has grown in leaps and bounds by maintaining a busy performance schedule of 100-150 shows each year, captivating cities and festivals all over the United States. For those of you who are tired of the status quo, there is good news: BIG MEAN SOUND MACHINE HAS OFFICIALLY ARRIVED.

Drawn to improvisation, The Dave Spadaro group offers inspired explorations at live performances, performing a blend of groovy funk songs and more soulful /  jazz fusion instrumentals.
