The Mantras
The Mantras
The Mantras, a five piece jam machine born of Greensboro, NC have been
conquering crowds and melting minds all over the country progressively for over a
decade. The band’s music can be described with all types of varying rock and roll
terminology, but is absolutely best defined by each listener’s ear and, equally
important, their experience.
Since the inception of The Mantras in the mid 2000's, the band has been touring the
country and building a catalog of 4 studio albums and over 100 original songs.
Performing an entirely different set of music each night is an integral part of the
band’s direction and mission as well as the ability to truly improvise in between
orchestrated pieces. With eclectic influences of sounds from around the globe, The
Mantras create a musical escapade during each performance, giving every ounce of
emotion to their craft of expression and communication through music.
The Mantras are a family of rock; their closely­knit bonds can truly be felt by the
crowd while the band performs. This is a critical feature of their community. One
can easily tell that the musical pockets created by radical guitar riffs, gut checked
bass lines, screeching synthesizers, a complete projection light show and two
symbiotic drummers are no accident. The musical conversation on stage is simply
beautiful to watch. The feeling is not exclusive just to the members on stage,
however. The Mantras’ loyal fan base can testify to the reciprocation of love
between performer and attendee and in a scene where it is sometimes difficult to
stabilize a fan base and a consistent identity, The Mantras do just that. It has all of
the ebbs and flows, peaks and valleys and patterns of constriction and release that
can hook someone for life. Each show is a story. Each story is unique.
In addition to the collaborative element between band and fans, The Mantras have
shared the stage with some of the foremost titans of jam. Their most recent studio
release, entitled Jam Bands Ruined My Life was recorded at Umphrey’s McGee, axe
man Jake Cinninger’s home studio, where Jake is featured on two tracks. Shortly
after recording, The Mantras opened for and shared the stage with Umphrey’s
McGee members while performing the thumping single entitled, “Kinetic Bump.” In
addition, The Mantras have collaborated with members of The String Cheese
Incident, Tea Leaf Green, and Perpetual Groove among many others. The year 2013
saw The Mantras play over 180 shows, culminating in their annual Mantrabash
music and arts festival, held in the beautiful backcountry of Ferguson, NC.
Mantrabash stands as a testament to the loyalty of the fan base and the engagement
of The Mantras within their local, regional, and national music communities.
Attended by thousands, Mantrabash has become the landing spot for live music fans

from all over the country to enjoy the hard work and dedication of The Mantras in
addition to the other stellar musicians who appear over the 3 days.
Electric Love Machine
Electric Love Machine
Electric Love Machine is a Future Wave/Space Disco quartet from Baltimore MD. Their style was born out of the Livetronica/Jam Band scene, and since it's inception has morphed into a musical powerhouse with masterful songwriting and roller coaster jams. Over the past five years their sound has evolved considerably while touching on the entire spectrum of human emotion; mixing the dark with the light, the pop with the jam, the disco with
the metal, all while sprinkling retro, funky overtones throughout.
The band has gone through a few lineup changes but has stayed mainly comprised of Jon Wood on guitar and vocals, Jon Brady on keys and vocals, and Alex Lang on bass. The band has consistently played close to or more than 100 shows a year and has had a considerable amount of time to hone their craft. Their high energy performances are often accompanied by mind bending visuals by the incomparable Jack Thomas that complement the music and it’s driving improvisational nature.
"Love Deluxe", Electric Love Machine's second album, was released in April of 2017 to overwhelmingly positive reviews and is a culmination of the past few years of the band’s writing. "Xenofonex", the band's first studio effort was released in 2013 and contains many of the band’s classics. A live album titled "Res Hits Vol. 1" is being finalized and will be available for digital download in the near future as well as the first EP in a duology titled "Future Creatures Pt.1".
Electric Love Machine is touring the Mid Atlantic, Northeast, and Southeast regions relentlessly in 2018 and a full schedule and additional media can be found on their website www.ElectricLoveMachine.com

ELM is part of a dedicated and diverse network of Live performance artists, acrobats, painters, graphic artists, musicians, fashion designers, and music lovers from in and around the Baltimore area who support each other and often perform together to make each show a profoundly unique experience.

Flying through their (fair-priced) interstellar journey, their tribe supports ELM not just in their hometown of Baltimore, MD, but also throughout the band’s multiple engagements spanning the Northeast, and future markets in the Southeast, Midwest, West, the Moon, and potentially our neighboring Andromeda Galaxy (dependent on contract negotiations).

In addition to the many hallowed halls ELM has had the extreme pleasure of playing, they have gratefully performed with jam monsters EOTO, Papadosio, Dopapod, TAUK, Turkuaz, Electron, and PPPP, and have played multiple sets at such fine festivals as All Good Music Festival, The Mad Tea Party, Moonrise, Camp Barefoot, The Werk Out, Domefest, and Lunar Bay.
Of Tomorrow
Of Tomorrow
Genre-melding and blending, breaking and remaking, the Washington, D.C. funk / rock / reggae / samba / hip-hop / soul supergroup Of Tomorrow derives its fiery sound straight from the future.

Blowing up at dozens of major festivals and venues this summer - including DC's 9:30 Club, The Mad Tea Party Jam, Doah Fest, The BIG What?, and more - this is a band on the rise, and one you absolutely must not miss.

Full-time founders Jon Modell (drums), Geoff Browning (guitar, vocals), and Nicholas Söderström (bass) curate a rotating "who's who" of DC guest stars, breathing new life and energy into the thoughtful, melodic, strong song structures of Tomorrow with every show.

of Tomorrow has built a strong following and reputation in the mid-Atlantic for their power, precision, and fire. Come out and see why!
