Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band)
Jennifer Hartswick (Trey Anastasio Band)
Trumpeter and vocalist, Jennifer Hartswick is one of the most exciting performers in music today. She exudes confidence and joy and brings her own refreshing spirit to the stage every time she performs. Jennifer’s music is honest, soulful and comes with a maturity far beyond her years.

Hartswick is an original member of the Trey Anastasio Band and has recorded/shared the stage with Herbie Hancock, Phish, Christian McBride, Tom Petty, Aaron Neville, Carlos Santana, The Rolling Stones, Big Gigantic, Dave Matthews and countless others.

Jennifer’s live performances are renowned as spontaneous, joyful and contagious. Her natural charisma and sincerity shines through, and each performance is a celebration of musical collaboration. And whether she is wailing on the trumpet or singing an intimate vocal solo, her performance is all part of a single seamless instrument, one that is played not only with astounding technical proficiency, but also with sensitivity, conviction and heart.

Turkuaz is a 9-piece “Powerfunk” outfit from Brooklyn, NY, whose modern take on the classic funk sound has established them as leaders in the funk revolution that’s currently taking place in the genre. Blending elements of Pop, R&B, and Soul with their distinct aggressive funk core, Turkuaz sounds like the musical love child of Sly & the Family Stone and Talking Heads.

With the release of their new album Digitonium, Turkuaz’s sound is more accessible than ever and poised to break out to a more mainstream audience. With a playful feel that evokes the best of 80s dance music, Turkuaz’s tightly arranged songs are built on thick grooves, driven by powerhouse rhythm and horn sections, as well as four distinct vocalists.

The group’s constant coast-to-coast touring since 2012 has earned them a passionate and dedicated national fan base that’s consistently growing. A dance band at their roots, Turkuaz’s live shows are high-energy, floor-shaking, visually appealing events filled with colorful clothing and choreographed dance moves that always leave attendees wanting more.

Turkuaz’s crossover appeal has never been more evident-- from a recent video performance going viral and receiving over 2 million Facebook views, to their music providing the soundtrack to New York Knicks games at Madison Square Garden, to constant rotation on Sirius XM Radio, Turkuaz is, as Relix Magazine says, “on the verge.”
Mike Tallman (Eufórquestra)
Mike Tallman (Eufórquestra)
Eufórquestra (pronounced yoo-FOHR-keh-struh, think euphoria+orchestra) is energy and rhythm personified. An ever-evolving sound that has been influenced by music from all over the world with an emphasis on funk, pocket and groove. For over a decade the band has been igniting dance floors across the country, blending the roots of funk, soul, afrobeat, reggae and dub to create a sound that “explodes, dances and melts in your ear with sheer bliss” (Chris M. Slawecki; AllAboutJazz.com).

Eufórquestra’s fifth full-length record, FIRE, was produced by Kyle Hollingsworth (of The String Cheese Incident) and captures the passion and musical maturing of these road warriors. Over the course of 14 tracks, the band takes you on an hour-long adventure that will touch your heart and mind, and keep your fingers and toes tapping. A handful of special guests, including Elliot Martin (John Brown’s Body), Gabriel Mervine and Kim Dawson (The Motet) and Mr. Hollingsworth himself, put their own touches on the band’s already cohesive sound that is “tight and engineered to a fine, funky precision.” (Jeremy Frazier; Chicago Jam Scene) The result is a record that is distinctly modern, maintaining one foot in the future and firmly planting in the musical roots traditions of the past.

With almost 1,000 shows under their belt, Eufórquestra shows no sign of stopping. A perpetually heavy tour schedule keeps the band and fans happy, as performing live in front of an audience has always been the band’s top priority. As noted in a live show review by Grateful Web, “...the boys seem to play like the apocalypse will happen at any second and they want to die doing what they do best...”
Sasha Brown
Sasha Brown
Sasha Brown is a guitarist and composer most-widely known for his work with Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, a band he was in from its inception until his final show with them at Irving Plaza in New York on Nov 12, 2016. While he was with the Dirty Birds, the band released 3 full-length studio albums, an EP, and a live concert DVD/double album. He toured extensively with the band – six years on the road for 250 days a year, performing over 1000 shows in 47 states, as well as in China, Guatemala, and Canada. The band performed everywhere from Madison Square Garden to the Fillmore in San Francisco, as well on the Today Show and NPR’s Tiny Desk, and was a fixture on the festival circuit — Bonnaroo, Austin City Limits, Hardly Strictly Bluegrass, Mountain Jam, Summer Camp, and Firefly, among many others.

[with Heather Christian & the Arbornauts]
Since 2008, Brown has also collaborated extensively with composer/performer Heather Christian, both as a member of her band (Heather Christian & the Arbornauts) and as part of the band performing her scores for new works for theater. Christian’s band has released 8 recordings since 2011, including 6 EPs in 2016 alone. Among those is Long Arc, an acoustic EP he and Christian co-wrote and recorded in two days in June 2016. The record was dedicated to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., and the proceeds from which are donated to the victims of the Pulse Nightclub shooting and the Southern Poverty Law Center. The band’s next record, Hymn, is currently being mastered at Abbey Road studios and will be released this year. Brown and Christian are collaborating on a score for a blues requiem mass as part of a theatrical work written by Christian which will debut in previews in summer 2017.

Christian composed the score for Lemon, a quirky, indie feature film directed by Janicza Bravo, which features Brett Gelman, Judy Greer and Michael Cera. The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, and after showing at Austin’s SXSW Film Fest and the Rotterdam Film Fest, wasacquired by Magnolia Pictures for distribution. Brown plays on the soundtrack for this film, as well as Christian’s score for Bravo’s extremely dark short film “Gregory Go Boom” (also featuring Michael Cera), which was the 2013 Sundance Film Festival selection.

[other associations]
Brown is also featured on recordings by:

-singer/composer Sunny Kim‘s art-rock project “Myth of Mitch: Android Ascension”

–Krystle Warren’s record “Love Songs“,

-trombonist Ryan Snow’s “Pull: Suffer Some” and their live-improvised score to the animated short “The Hungry Boy“,

-a forthcoming album & DVD by the Andrew D’Angelo Big Band

[solo artist / leader work]
Brown is currently writing and recording music for an assortment of new projects as well as composing scores for film and several theatrical productions currently in development. He can be seen performing throughout the US in a variety of projects across many musical genres.

In April 2017, Brown released Caveat Emperor: 4 Troubled Mind Improvisations 4 Troubled Times, inspired principally by the political landscape in America. May it be suggested that those wishing to support Brown in his work use that record as a digital tip jar and/or directly support his work released through his Bandcamp page…

Jeremy Salken (Big Gigantic)
Jeremy Salken (Big Gigantic)
Big Gigantic, whose blend of mind-bending beats, thunderous bass, and frenetic melodies has developed a rabid following since forming in 2008, has taken their sound to yet another dimension with the release of their newest album 'Nocturnal' (available now for FREE download at www.biggigantic.net). The album, by Boulder, CO-based saxophonist/producer Dominic Lalli and drummer Jeremy Salken, solidifies Big Gigantic as a key player in the worlds of electronic, dance, and hip-hop.

With a provocative sound that's as thoughtful as it is danceable, Big Gigantic's new songs like "Nocturnal" and "Hopscotch" weave whirling melodies into addictive beats and samples that wouldn't sound out of place on a Kanye West or LCD Soundsystem single. No genre is off-limits for Big Gigantic, whose breakthrough sound channels everything from funk and dub-step to house and hip-hop.

After graduating with a master's degree in jazz at the Manhattan School of Music, Lalli relocated to Boulder and began performing with Salken, experimenting with the idea of interpreting traditional DJ-based music with live instruments. The duo built up early hype in 2008 with local shows and one-offs around the country before releasing their debut album 'Fire It Up' in 2009 and embarking on a full US tour.

Already a smash on the festival circuit, Big Gigantic's transcendent live shows are a showcase of brilliant improvisation and a tightly-knit bond between Salken and Lalli, who breathlessly alternates between keys, sax and laptop, building a futuristic wall of sound that keeps the crowd on its feet. The marathon shows feature a variety of songs new, old and unreleased, as well as outside-of-the-box remixes including Wiz Khalifa's "Black and Yellow," Aloe Blacc's 'I need a Dollar,' and Notorious B.I.G.'s "Notorious Thugs."

Todd Stoops (RAQ)
Todd Stoops (RAQ)
Self-described as high performance rock n roll, RAQ has been touring as a four piece band for over a decade now. Their unique sound featuring complex song structure and quirky-yet-accessible lyrics has their older fans wishing the band was still full time and the younger generation wondering what they have missed. There is little doubt after the first reunion shows that RAQ still delivers tremendously when it comes to live improvisational rock.

The band met in Burlington, Vermont, where they first called themselves "Shadraq", but decided to shorten the name to RAQ before cutting their debut album “Shed Tech” in March of 2001. In 2002, the band saw original keyboard player, Marc Scortino, leave the band and replaced by Todd Stoops. Stoops joined Chris Michetti (guitar), Jay Burwick (Bass) and Greg Stukey (drums) to make up the band for the remainder of the decade. The band went on to release “Carbohydrates Are the Enemy” later that year and set out for their first national tour. In 2006, RAQ released their third album “Ton These.”

One of the reasons behind RAQ's highly successful tour past is due to their compositions being grounded in solid song structures, but still being malleable enough to go in infinite directions in the live setting. This keeps the quartet's devout following and first time listeners yearning for more as the audience is taken along on the collective journey. Their extensive repertoire of original compositions and eclectic selection of covers give the band the freedom to create a unique set list for every show.
