BIG Something
BIG Something
A 6 piece powerhouse with a sound that is both unique and timeless, BIG Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, and improvisation to take listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. It's no secret why this group has quickly become one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the Southeast. Soaring guitars, synths, horns and alluring vocal hooks rise to the top of their infectious collection of songs and represent a sound that has caught the ears of such revered Summer circuit stalwarts as Galactic, moe., Robert Randolph, and even The B52s who have all tapped Big Something as direct support.
The group recently released its 3rd full-length studio album - Truth Serum - with the help of Grammy-nominated producer John Custer. Recorded almost entirely live in the studio, Truth Serum, is a great snapshot of the magic the band is capable of creating on stage. The album, which also features an appearance from DJ Logic, was named 2014 Album of the Year by The Homegrown Music Network, which makes Big Something the only band ever to win this award 3 times with 3 different releases (2010, 2013, and 2014). Truth Serum is available to stream for free in its entirety at: www.bigsomething.bandcamp.com
Greener Grounds
Greener Grounds
Greener Grounds is a four piece jamtronica band based out of Denver, CO. They quickly gained momentum and secured a name for themselves in the highly competitive jam band music scene with performances at Backwoods Music Festival, Highberry Music Festival, SONIC BLOOM, and many more. Inspired by the likes of Lotus, STS9, the Disco Biscuits, Phish, and Umphrey’s Mcgee, they blend many styles including psychedelic funk, rock, trance fusion, and break beats. Their eclectic sound continues to take crowds by surprise ensuring a lively, danceable, and energetic vibe where ever the road takes them.

Greener Grounds features Joe Shur on guitar, Roland Hansen on keys and synth, Jay Rieder on bass, and AJ Gillman on drums.

Holding themselves to a high standard, Greener Grounds is comprised of passion, collective consciousness, environmental sustainability and unity, which is all expressed through their music. Constantly evolving in their sound, performance, and presence, they have caught the attention of sponsors, stages, and festivals all around the United States. Their “Practice makes perfect” mentality is visible in their connection to each other and their fans at each show. In the past year they have lit up the stage at Sonic Bloom, ARISE Music Festival, and Resonance Music & Arts Festival. Accompanied by performances with Perpetual Groove, Kyle Hollingsworth Band, Kung Fu, the Main Squeeze, Consider the Source, the Magic Beans, the Mantras, YAMN, and many more!

Last year’s release of their first EP, Photosynthesis, has been praised and quoted as “Jamtronica Gold,” by The Untz, setting them up for a bright future in the studio world. Greener Grounds followed their debut EP with a full length album, Momentous, that was successfully funded by through their Kickstarter Campaign. Momentous was released on July 8, 2016 and became a groundbreaking force for both the jam band and livetronica music scenes.
