UnderGround Mantra - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
UnderGround Mantra
Underground Mantra is a Power Trio whose sound is rooted in Rock/Funk with a Blues and Hip-Hop Fusion.



After attending Berklee College of Music and building a strong fan base in Boston, the band has moved to NYC to continue to build a following with a focus on the Lower East Side and Brooklyn. UGM is currently recording new music and continuing to build their presence in New York City.
The Royal Wigs - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The Royal Wigs
An alt.country Americana supergroup of sorts," according to ALLMUSIC GUIDE, The Royal Wigs have one foot solidly in the city while the other is clearly in the country, with their influences as much purist alternative rock as they are traditional country rock. One song from the Honky Tonk, another punk-fuelled Lower East Side, while yet another emanating from David Bowie's 70's explorations.

Highlighting contributors from bands as diverse as Great Lakes Myth Society, Jason Molina / Songs:Ohia, Seldon Plan, The Drifters, and Lenny Kravitz, the group sways back and forth seamlessly between various styles that we might call "rock," while always sounding exactly like themselves.

The group's debut album, "She's a Goddess, I'm a Ghost," produced by Grammy Award-winning producer John Seymour (U2, Santana, Alice in Chains) will drop in 2017. The leaked first single from the album "Worst Case Scenario" is up on all major download and streaming sites.

SondorBlue - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
SondorBlue
The members of Charleston, South Carolina’s SondorBlue have the markers of the so-called ‘New Bohemian’ movement – with focus on a healthy lifestyle, brotherly love, and individuality. From TIME Magazine in the US to THE GUARDIAN in the UK, people are talking about the return to this free-thinking way of life. While SondorBlue is a rock band writing tight pop songs, they share the relentless touring schedule, the fan culture and the raw musicianship of artists on the ever-expanding jam band scene.

The band is comprised of three exceptionally talented vocalists who could each easily front their own bands – Connor Hollifield on lead guitar, John Sheehan on guitar and keyboards and Andrew Halley at center stage on bass – with drummer, Drew Lewis holding down a clockwork backbeat. They come together to create harmonies unlike any you have ever heard. Connor explained of the arrangement “We had all had our own songwriting side projects when we were younger, but when we came together to play music — that's when we were the happiest.” Sheehan added “I wanted to share this experience with my best friends. I knew we could go a lot further together than any of us could alone.”

If longevity for bands is determined by their ability to pull off their recorded material in a live setting, then SondorBlue is set up for a long, fruitful career. They have been aggressively touring all along the East Coast and make pulling off their complex harmonies and playing their intricate arrangements look easy. The band loves to play live. “It is one of my favorite things,” says Lewis. “It has been great to watch the songs develop as we take them out of the studio and onto the stage.”

“We’ve been lucky to connect with some great people on the road and they have been enormously supportive,” explains Halley. "We’ve been able to replicate some of our experience through social media, and it has been rewarding to engage and keep in touch with everyone we've met along the way.” It shows - the band’s single, “OPINIONS,” has over 125k streams on Spotify and a track off their 2016 REALOMETER EP release, “The Moon And You,” has over 110k streams. BuzzArtists called their musical combination “swirling, harmony-driven indie rock,” though you might want to add a touch of ‘pop’ to the band’s ever-evolving recipe. With YOU WILL FIND LOVE ON ASHLEY AVENUE, the band’s brand new EP, they bring context to their recent hit, “OPINIONS,” by wearing their Beatles influence on their proverbial sleeve. Gorgeous melodies, harmonies and expert instrumentation are the hallmarks of the other tracks “Escape!,” “A Beautiful Dream,” “I hate living like this” and the single “Ashley Ave.”

SondorBlue are poised for big things in the future. Look for them at a venue near you.
Storm Kid - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Storm Kid
Storm Kid is the latest project from the Massachusetts born singer/songwriter Charlie Geyer, built on loud guitars and big choruses. The Brooklyn-based group has its roots in American alternative music, infused with melodies that harken back to the Britpop they grew up with. The band consists of Charlie (lead vocals/guitar), Chris Holdridge (drums), Ben Kogan (bass) and Tim Miles (lead guitar). Storm Kid's debut single "Shine" is due out summer of 2017.
