AJR Brothers

AJR is a New York City based indie pop band comprised of three brothers:
Adam Jack and Ryan. Self produced and recorded in their living room, their music inspires comparisons to both contemporary and classic artists, while still sounding completely their own.

The brothers’ collaborative style spans their writing, vocals, production and instrumentation. Adam, 23, and recent graduate of Columbia University, sings, plays bass and writes lyrics. Jack, 16, sings, plays guitar and contributes to songwriting all while still being in High School. Ryan, 19, currently studies at Columbia University and is the primary writer/producer for the group; in addition he plays guitar, ukulele, piano and sings. Growing up in New York, Adam, Jack and Ryan started performing together in 2007 and are constantly inspired by the creativity and individuality that their city brings to the table.

Come Back Alice

“Formed in 2012, Come Back Alice has a patently-unique sound that they’ve dubbed Southern Gypsy Funk, a blend of rock, soul, gypsy jazz and funk music, the flavors of which compliment each other like ingredients in a fine New Orleans gumbo. With improvisational influences and a love of bands known for killer live performances—including The Band, Dave Matthews, Tom Petty, and The Allman Brothers Band—even the biggest Come Back Alice fans don’t know what to expect from show to show from a band that has never repeated a set list.” – Dennis Maley, The Bradenton Times

Flamingosis

Flamingosis (the name comes from a freestyle Frisbee move that his father invented) is an electronic music producer, beatboxer and entertainer. Gathering influences from other beat makers, such as Flying Lotus, J Dilla and Madlib, Aaron is able to take these sources of inspiration in order to come up with his own unique style.

Crobot

There was a time when rock radio was dominated by great riffs. From Deep Purple’s “Smoke On the Water” and Derek And The Dominoes’ “Layla” to Soundgarden’s “Black Hole Sun” and Rage Against The Machine’s “Killing In The Name Of” it was all about that unmistakable guitar sound that instantly identified a band or song. The members of Crobot have united to bring that back.

Blending funk, blues, metal and good old-fashioned rock and roll into a howling vortex of Yeagley’s vocals and Bishop’s guitar, Crobot have crafted an album of endless good time rock hooks that sound as inspired today as they would have on AOR radio in 1974.

“We grew up with the same riff rock and it’s seemingly lacking in today’s music. We really seem to like the rock of old and felt that was missing,” Yeagley says.

Crobot is a band that can rock at all tempos. Whether it’s the slow-building groove of “Skull Of Geronimo,” a methodical sludge-rocker that calls to mind Soundgarden in the chorus or the more up-tempo funkified “Nowhere To Hide,” a track that sounds like the Black Crowes driving a Camaro, Crobot display stellar musicianship and lyrical depth.

Drivin The Bus

Drivin’ the Bus (DTB) is an all-star jam band formed in the warmth of sunny So California. Their repertoire and style are considerably diverse considering their musical roots and upbringing. DTB’s creative output equals that of the longevity of each members musical journey. One thing for sure, at every show they continue to push their performances higher and further. Jam on! There’s no denying that the band is a dedicated crew who have put in many hours of tireless effort to attain the skills and experience necessary to become an international sensation – but again, let’s not get ahead of ourselves.

Whether playing regional venues, festivals, county fairs, or private and corporate events, what keeps DTB interesting is not only the energy and vitality of their music and songwriting, but the fun in which it is delivered. One thing is certain, the band prides itself on their extended jams, which some claim sound “unique,” “clever,” and “filled with ripping guitar solos.” The sound of “The Bus” ranges from delicate and subtle – to explosive and hard-driving, like a Greyhound bus hurtling down Route 66!

The band’s material covers the old and the new, from rock to jazz fusion, and even some Motown. Whether a cover tune, or an original, there’s guaranteed to be many an extended improvised jam that will get the crowd rocking, spinning, and out on the dance floor.

From their humble beginnings, each player contributes to the whole. Craig Flecks’ guitar playing is the fuel that drives the bus (Clement Forrest, Giant Peach, Full Strength Funk Band, Sonic Art). His blistering solos often seem to channel the styles of some of the best-known rock legends. Craig’s childhood friend Ritchie Lipson, (Peach Fuzz, Giant Peach) holds the bus together with interesting rhythmic guitar flourishes that nicely complement’s Craig’s fleet-fingered guitar work. The rhythm section is anchored by the energetic vibe and drumming work of Erick Rockwell (Safety Orange) and the exceptional bass playing of Rich Schermerhorn, which combined are the engine that propels the bus. Together these friends create a musical collaboration that is much greater than the sum of their parts.

Despite the fact that there does not seem to be an actual driver of this bus, the sounds of the road – the freeway jam, you might say – will be rumbling and rollin’ whenever Drivin’ the Bus pulls into your station. And, despite what the urban dictionary might have to say about “driving the bus” (https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Driving%20the%20Bus), the band does not feel constrained by this definition!

So, rock ‘n roll on down the highway … and get on the bus!
