Crystal Garden is the brainchild of Boyd Tinsley of Dave Matthews Band. For two years he sought out the right group of musicians to form a modern day rock band. The four members of the band are from Seattle, San Francisco and Toronto. Crystal Garden will soon release a CD that features Boyd Tinsley and special guest Stanley Jordan.
The band members are Boyd Tinsley (Violin), Mycle Wastman (Guitar, Vox), Charlie Csontos (Bass) and Matt Frewen (Drums).
Stick around after the show for a special Meet & Greet with Boyd Tinsley & Crystal Garden.

Since their conception, ten piece Funk/Soul band West End Blend has been playing their version of Funk and Soul in venues all over the Northeast. Fronted by vocalist Erica Bryan, the band pays homage to classic throwback sounds while adding their own distinct vibe and flair. Behind her, the Blend packs a four-piece horn section, two guitars, bass, keyboards and drums onto stages every night. From humble beginnings in an epic sweaty funky basement dance party, the Blend’s goal has always been to bring that same atmosphere to every show ever since.
The Blend released their debut full length record, “Rewind”, in the Fall of 2015. The album was recorded at Telefunken Studios with Grammy Award winning engineer, Brendan Morawski. Alongside their album release, West End Blend shared the stage with Turkuaz, Break Science, Kung Fu, Twiddle, Sister Sparrow & the Dirty Birds, The Nth Power, The Motet and countless others Jam/Funk staples throughout 2015-2016 . On September 28th, 2016 the Blend released their latest EP “Say Hey!” as they embark on their Fall Tour across the Northeast.
