Kendall Street Company
Kendall Street Company
Kendall Street Company is a six-piece rock band based out of Charlottesville, Virginia. Known for their immensely energetic and unpredictable live performances, the band's musical style incorporates elements of jam, folk, jazz, ska, funk, and psychedelic rock. Fusing genres, they embrace mind-altering riffs as well as soulful and jazzy wit, while remaining true to their folksy songwriting roots. The Company evokes an ever-changing kaleidoscope of sound, spinning out an organic repertoire entirely their own.
The band maintains a central presence on the East Coast having performed over 100 shows in the past calendar year at venues from Fort Lauderdale to New York City. This includes dates at Lockn' Music Festival (next to Umphrey's Mcgee), Shadefest (Avenue, MD), The Shack Up (Richmond, VA), and a headlining slots at the Misty Mountain Music Festival and Jam Fish Music Festival. Their set at Lockn was described by Relix Magazine as "raising the crowd's energy with frontman Louis Smith and guitarist Ben Laderberg's acoustic/electric interplay and lively, technical breakdowns".
FeelFree
FeelFree
A sound we all can call home. Listening to Washington D.C.-based band FeelFree's most recent EP entitled "The Ebb Tide", listeners are surrounded by infectious reggae rhythms layered with jazz harmonies. Mix in blues-tinged guitar work, catchy vocal melodies and a hard-hitting horn section, FeelFree's genre bending reggae is a brand new sound. Their diverse array of instrumentation allows them to effortlessly blend reggae, funk, jazz, and rock influences and has audiences fist-pumping and slow-dancing all in the same breath at one funky reggae party you won't want to miss. There is something for everyone in FeelFree's music, a song for any time of day.

Born and bred in the cultural "melting-pot" that is Washington D.C.'s metro area where styles as different as punk-rock, Central American reggaeton, and D.C. go-go music clash on the daily, FeelFree's own evolution has been ten years in the making. As youngsters, Andrew Pfeiffer, Evan Hulehan, and Bryan Frank began composing original tunes in seventh grade. Fast-forward 6 years, FeelFree began seriously writing, performing, and recording in and around Alexandria, VA after adding Garret Clausen on bass and Colin Cantfil on trumpet in 2010. In 2014, they added the multi-talented Davey Hoen to the mix on keyboards rounding out their vibrant sound.

Their live show exhibits FeelFree's raw, powerful energy and impressive live musicianship and has listeners hooked on their innovative, yet accessible tunes. They are quickly gaining popularity in and around Washington D.C. and now have 2 east coast tours under their belt. Slated to record a new album this winter, FeelFree's horizons are ever-expanding. Their music is for the everyday work-hard, play-hard music fan who appreciates life for the people we share it with, the challenges we face, and the good times we celebrate. FeelFree.
Bencoolen
Bencoolen
Rock. Blues. Funk. Shred. Sax.

Bencoolen is no longer the band you know from their first EPs. The band has grown around a new lineup, toured, and rehearsed more than ever. "Spotlight" was the introduction to their new wave. "The Crown" continues it in a recent release. The band is already touring relentlessly ahead of another single and are saving up to record a full length project in the Summer of 2018. Ask anyone who has seen this lineup live. Bencoolen is tighter, raunchier, and more energetic with every passing show, with 54 performances in 2017 including stops at the The Big What, Shadefest, and Firefly.

One No Depression writer described Bencoolen's live act as, “Everything I had hoped for. Their enthusiasm and energy filled the room as the crowd looked on, filling up the venue with a prominent and boisterous vibrancy.”
