A Second Life 

A Second Life is an independent Alternative Rock band based in New York who have been taking the local rock scene by storm with their big stage style of music. After releasing their debut EP titled Dream in 2015 and opening for several national touring acts, including Dishwalla, Saving Abel, Steven Adler, and Quiet Riot, the guys are focused on taking their music and band to the next level in 2016. They have been picking up the pace, playing shows at The Hard Rock NYC, The Cutting Room, Legendary Dobbs in Philadelphia, Harrisburg Music Conference, 89 North, Bitter End NYC, and Stephen Talkhouse in Amagansett. Dijon is currently working with several festival organizers for some big shows planned around the U.S. in 2016. The band has been recording with Richie Cannatta (Billy Joel's band) at Cove City Studios and will be releasing a new EP on June 1st..

The Midnight Echo

The Midnight Echo is an alternative band based out of Guelph, Canada.
After one year of writing and recording material, The Midnight Echo will be releasing their debut album entitled, Voyager in Spring 2017. This ten-track record features a full tone matched by no other in today’s music scene. This is achieved through a huge, reverb-oriented sound, mixed with atmospheric and anthemic qualities that seem to be lacking in alternative music these days. Although the music is filled with passion, it is also rich with intensity, angst, and emotion.

The Foxfires 

The Foxfire's sound was forged by the ethereal and sometimes dark nature of shoegaze bands such as My Bloody Valentine and Ride; the Indie Pop sound of bands such as The 1975 and Foals; and the experimental folk sounds of bands like Wilco and Death Cab for Cutie. The sound became known as "Seagaze" which was inspired by the band's collective love of the beach and the ocean. "Seagaze" is often described by the band as the sound you would want to feel while you're looking out at the ocean and is also inspired by Bruce Lee's speech about being like water- able to flow and open to change. September 3, 2016 saw the release of The Foxfires first full length album, Reawakening, a bold new step forward for the band in terms of songwriting, musicianship, production, and artistic individuality.

 

LegPuppy 

Electro Punk four piece from South London are one of the most exciting and unique live acts on the circuit. You will not forget a LegPuppy show in a hurry.

The band consist of
Darren Laurence - Songwriter, synths, drum machines, sampler, vocalist 
Claire Jones - Songwriter, vocalist, keyboards, acoustic guitar 
Phil Bellinger aka Pups - Guitar, keyboard 
Simon James aka Hugo Bamoboo - Clown, vocalist

Its very hard to categorize their music, as there are elements of Primal Scream, Underworld, Massive Attack & the Prodigy at work here.

One thing is for sure, this band are made for dance tents at large festivals.

 

Donnie Sundal

With the lively international release of their debut LP “A lil’ Boukou in Your Cup” and the ability to maintain a dynamic tour schedule, Boukou Groove provides audiences with a genre-bending collective, touching on elements of New Orleans style Funk, R&B, Soul and Blues.
Founded on the stage at Tipitinas in New Orleans in 2010, Boukou Groove is the brainchild of singer/producer Donnie Sundal and New Orleans guitar luminary Derwin “Big D” Perkins. Sundal, sharing stages and recording with the likes of Sam Bush and Junior Marvin of The Wailers, creates an infectious blend of energy and enthusiasm as he showcases his multi-octave ranging vocals while sustaining his brand of lavish Moog bass lines. Big D (Jon Cleary and the Absolute Monster Gentleman, Bonnie Raitt and Rockin’ Dopsie) provides his smooth and funky guitar licks largely based on improvisation and feel alone. Together, no matter what the venue, the band provides their distinguishing style and creates a kinetic environment that’s easily spread throughout the audience.

Brother Bicker Band

Close your eyes... picture where you were the first time that you heard that really, really great song... the first one that comes to mind - the song with the jangling guitars, pounding drums, thumping bass, moaning organ, three part harmonies, and the lyrics that spoke directly to you. The one that changed your life. The song, that every time you hear it, takes you back to a memory, a feeling, a love, a loss, an amazing moment time...

Open your eyes and fast forward five, ten, fifteen or maybe even thirty years (or more).... the Brother Bicker Band is trying to recapture that memory, that feeling, that love, that loss and that amazing moment in time with every song that they play, original or cover.

Explorers

Explorers are, in a way, everything the literal thinker would expect them to be; a synth pop band transporting you somewhere else; artisans of expansive, multi layered sounds existing somewhere in-between the sonic depth of M83 and melodic immediacy of the Naked and Famous. And yet, while the journey is undoubtedly to the stars, there’s a cherishing gaze back to earth too.

Taking their name from a mutual love of Joe Dante’s film, ‘Explorers’, the two piece - Jez Dennis (drums, synth) and Rob Bannister (synth, vocals) came together through a mutual love of nostalgia, 80’s cinema and a ‘DIY’ spirit built in a Chesterfield attic. The sparkling euphoria of the Explorers sound stylishly characterises those effecting instances of Dennis and Bannister’s youthful discovery; infinite in the moment and wistfully recalled with energetic nods to the future.

THE CONTAGIOUS

We are a band from Montgomery, Texas. Includes Mac Johnson- lead vocals and guitar, Cayden Diebold- bass and backing vocals and Jake Douglas- drums.

Alone Together

In early 2015, Alone Together formed after Calista and Chloe parted ways from their former band and began producing music inspired by their years of songwriting and performing. Their artistic styles grew as the girls were introduced to their energetic guitarist, Anthony, through a mutual friend. Alone Together became whole as Jacob officially joined the band as their drummer in mid 2016.

After a little over a year, the band has written over ten tracks, performed at popular So Cal venues, (such as Whiskey a Go-Go, Coach House and Troubadour), and released their debut EP in April 2017. Their buzz in the SoCal area caught the attention of Power 106's Yesi Ortiz, who has been a large part in developing their sound and image.
