Lazer Dad

Journey back to a time when the music was dope, the girls were fly, and the fashion was fresher than the Prince of Bel Air. This is LAZER DAD, the tribute band that serves up a shot of nostalgia straight from the heart, with the hits of the 1990s!

Michael-Louis Smith & The Brooklyn Circle

MLS + Brooklyn Circle has been bringing high energy original jams to the eardrums listeners in NYC and beyond for over 20 years. The group features world renowned saxophonist Stacy Dillard, bassist Diallo House, guitarist Michael-Louis Smith, and drummer Ismail Lawal. The musicians in the band, all of whom are also composers, are an integral part of the modern jazz scene at home in New York and around the world.

Brooklyn Circle delivers a powerhouse live show that includes virtuosic soloists, cutting edge original compositions, telepathic band interplay and has a certain inexplicable aspect to the music. This brotherhood of like minds and sprits has crafted a unique sound, style and singular vision from years of performing together and they cite influences as diverse as Miles Davis, The Grateful Dead, Bob Marley, and the Wu-Tang Clan.

Chicken Fat Injection (CFI)

Chicken Fat Injection is a Vermont band made up of some of the finest players in the region. With over 300 shows behind them, the group communication and groove is transcendent, bordering on ‘one mind’.

CFI’s choice of – and approach to – material is unique. Believing that playing sets that cross genres is not only refreshing and unexpected for an audience, the band remains fresh on each gig; CFI is dedicated to exploring the common languages of Funk, Soul, Jazz, Blues, Country, Reggae and Rock – in real time. It’s all CFI – and it’s all Groovy.

As a quartet, CFI’s is: George Petit on guitars and vocals, John Rivers on electric bass, Geza Carr on drumset and Mike Hartigan on keyboards…upon occasion, when the party permits, we expand to an nonet, adding up to a full five-piece horn section that includes Jake Whitesell (tenor), Rob DeBruyn (tenor), Avery Cooper (alto/bari), Conor Young (tpt/flug) and Nate Reit (t’bone).

Free-range music. Fowl things up.

Local Dork

Local Dork was established in 2016 with the intention of spoon feeding listeners deep cuts from vinyl records. Unafraid to display a range of music that spans decades of soul, world, funk, contemporary boogie, country, salsa, you name it! Local Dork takes refreshing left turns that stylistically enhance the atmosphere with eclectic flare. It’s good, fun and educational.
