Thunder Body
Thunder Body
From the Flower City of Rochester, NY -- THUNDER BODY is a timeless exercise in the possibilities of tight, analog electric roots music. A progression of over a hundred songs celebrate the healing power of sound vibrations in music. The sonic potion they call “senzae” combines elements of soul, blues, noise, dub, and jazz. It honors the healing power of music. There is no sign of letting up: The past is the story; the future is a mystery.
Joint Operation
Joint Operation
Joint Operation is a powerful reggae-rock band from Baltimore, MD. This explosive trio has made quite a presence for themselves in the Mid-Atlantic with dozens of shows with the biggest names in the genre. Life-long friends, Josh Lewis, Daniel O’brien, and Fabrizio Scotto, have managed to integrate all the genres they grew to love as children into this power group. Whether it be reggae, punk rock or funk, this group rocks the house and shows fans how to party. Influences include Beck, Nirvana, Sublime, and many more!

Looking into the core of their music, it is almost hard to believe they are only a three-piece band. With the filling sounds of Josh Lewis’ powerful vocals and savory guitar licks, you would think that they must have another member hidden and playing along. Accompanying him, is the rhythm section made up of Daniel O’brien’s funky bass hits that are always right in the pocket with drummer Fabrizio Scotto’s hard-hitting fills and snaps. Joint Operation values the idea of connecting with others through their music. The band hopes to create music and play live shows to help others forget the struggles of life, and just enjoy living in the moment.

Their debut album, “Where’s Bud?” is planned for release in August 2017. This album focuses on talking about life, happiness, and struggles, while bringing in the party with the lively music of their mixed genres. This album will for sure have something for everyone, and the band cannot wait to finally release it after two years of production!

Joint Operation loves to challenge themselves, whether it be on the road, in the studio, on stage, or at practice, they are always trying to be greater. With huge performances, and a tour under their belt, they are ready to travel farther out and share their music with others. They hope to push themselves harder and celebrate music and art with others all over the globe!
Gang Of Thieves
Gang Of Thieves
High energy and a good time is the hallmark of Burlington, Vermont's Gang of Thieves. Nominated for "2013 Rock Act of the Year" by the New England Music Awards, Gang of Thieves cook up a stew of influences ranging from Red Hot Chili Peppers and Sublime to Rage Against the Machine and Led Zeppelin.
These Green Mountain funk-rockers have won over diverse audiences coast-to-coast, hitting the stage for the Vans Warped Tour on the one hand, and playing with monster Jam sensation Twiddle on the other. The key to this universal appeal is the infectious sense of fun and showmanship, delivered with a hint of spiritual and political awareness, without any preachy self-righteousness. The penchant for funky grooves that anchor the band's original songs can be heard in their new EP "Mantra", the followup to their highly praised "Thunderfunk" album recorded in Berkeley, CA with Grammy award winning producer Michael Rosen (Santana, Rancid, Less Than Jake).

"infectious grooves...These hard working, Burlington-based musicians entranced the audience with their high-energy onslaught of funk/rock tunes….an amazing show"
- Cider Mag

"Rush meets Blood Sweat and Tears….Gang of Thieves put on quite a show" - AXS

"...catchy and danceable as hell."

"a mix of funk and rock to make a party into a rager"
