Bella's Bartok
Bella's Bartok
All little children grow up, one day — all except the bedazzled and glittered boys of Bella’s Bartok. Inspired by elements of Vaudeville, centuries of streetperformance, and an unyielding drive to promote camaraderie, Northampton, MA-based Bella’s Bartok delivers a passionate kaleidoscope of sound. The songs are born of Americana and folk music of their immigrant grandparents, blended with the joy of a particular brand of pop sensibility. Their performances are at once a primal stand against oppression and a declaration of joy in the face of adversity. From quiet reflections on loss, to the howl of justice in four-part harmony, Bella’s Bartok sonically and lyrically delivers a sweaty, soulful dance-party that is sure to leave the audience happily breathless.
Started in the dimly lit alleyways of Great Barrington, MA, Bella’s Bartok gradually evolved from street-punk performers to an electric, brass-filled, accordion-based spectacle that has continued to entertain audiences for nearly a decade. The line-up includes: Asher Putnam (Lead Vocals), Dan Niederhauser (Bass, Vocals), Amory Drennan (Trombone, Vocals), Crisco (Drums/Percussion, Vocals), Gershon Rosen (Trumpet, Vocals), Alex Kogut (Accordion, Keyboard, Vocals) and Lucas Solórzano (Guitar, Vocals). The band has shared the stage with musicians and acts such as Rubblebucket, Red Baraat, The Indigo Girls, Larry & His Flask, The Suitcase Junket, Parsonsfield, And the Kids, Kanye, Rough Francis, Beau Sasser’s Escape Plan, West End Blend, Adam Ezra Group, Meat Puppets, World Inferno/Friendship Society, Rupa & the April Fishes, Arc Iris, and many more. Find Bella’s Bartok on a variety of stages, at a myriad of festivals, or on the street across the continental United States. Audiences often pick up on the band’s main influences such as Frank Zappa, System of a Down, Tom Waits and Oingo Boingo.
Amoramora
Amoramora
Featuring an upbeat blend of funk, bluegrass, African highlife and folk rock, these Rocky Mountain boys harken back to the early days of the jam rock scene and bands like Blind Melon and Strange Folk that just oozed positivity. Fueled by high-energy improvisation, the undeniable joy this quartet shares onstage and offstage is reflected by their devout and growing fanbase, the Amorons, who helped the band sell out their first The Fox Theatre headliner in May of 2017, and ultimately launched them out on the road in support of their live album S’moramora Volume 2.
Kingkween
Kingkween
Indie alt-rock trio kingkween is a collaboration between powerhouse front woman KT Mulholland, legendary producer and writer Hitz, and internationally-acclaimed drummer Rob Steadman. Fusing electro-pop synth with clever rock rhythms and soul-shaking harmonies, this group is equal parts grit and glamour. Following their debut appearance at NYC’s legendary Bowery Ballroom, kingkween will release their debut EP late summer 2018.
