Backup Planet
Backup Planet
Backup Planet is a progressive funk-rock band exploding out of Nashville, Tennessee. To see Backup Planet perform live is to simultaneously travel back in time and forward into the future. Their truly unique sound emanates from a place that seems familiar, yet unchartered. Elements of jazz, funk, roots, blues, electronic, and progressive rock all emerge during the course of their shows. Their sound draws from so much you’ve heard before—’70s rock and funk, high-energy improv, a touch of pop, and a sliver of metal. But the members of Backup Planet mix and match those elements—with just a hint of modern tech to burnish a sturdy nucleus of retro-minded organ and guitar—in ways that never fail to astonish. With a fantastic repertoire of original songs, they’re able to build fluid sets interspersed with extended improvisation. Audiences can sense when a group takes major risks onstage; the elements of surprise and unpredictability foster a level of joy unparalleled in other types of musical performances. Masters of this process, Ben Cooper, Gavin Donati, Blake Gallant, and Chris Potocik, are doing all of the above while their rapidly growing fan base cheers in approval and shouts for more.
Gang Of Thieves
Gang Of Thieves
Gang of Thieves are pioneering a new breed of American Rock n Roll, injecting funky riffs, catchy melodies, and electric violin into unforgettable high energy performances. From Opera Houses to Music Halls, and Colleges to Preschools, the Gang has captivated audiences of all ages from around the globe. The band just released their new EP “Totem”(December 8th), recorded with grammy winning engineer Michael Rosen (Santana, Rancid, Less than Jake).
FUX
F.U.X, but you can call us FUX, was started by Mark Sultan after years of freelance playing around the east coast. Blending their love for Phish, Umphrey’s McGee, TAUK, Mahavishnu Orchestra, Steely Dan and many classic rock bands, Sultan set out to find his brothers (Reade Alexander and Luke Klaer) and thus in an erotic crossfire hurricane FUX was born. FUX decided it was time to take their knowledge and mend it with their soul to work towards getting the masses dancing, laid, and spreading love. After receiving knowledge from idols Jacob Alan Cinninger, Brendan Bayliss (Umphrey’s McGee) and Gabriel Marin (Consider the Source) they were ready to finally show the world what was brewing in their mind and make music that makes sense. FUX combines their goofy and laid back personalities on and off stage to help spread cheerfulness and positivity to the world. Don't let their silly attitudes fool you, these boys show up to play. With the deep transcendental rhythmic varieties from Luke, the buttery bass love bombs from Ben, smooth melodic phrases from Reade, and sporadic ignition from Sultan, FUX will keep you dancing all night long.

“FUX really knows how to FUX”. - No Name Magazine

“I can FUX with it” - Lord Brandon Baylor (Humphrey’s McGoo)
