Flux Capacitor
"Emerging from the out
skirts of the Philadelphia area, Flux Capacitor is quickly becoming a must-see in the region's music scene. The band invokes a fresh dynamic sound, combining skilled songwriting with instrumental explorations. Flux Capacitor has gained an expanding fan-base by playing numerous clubs, venues, festivals and hosting various parties dubbed as "encounters" where you can find the band jamming and experimenting late into the night. The three-piece outfit, comprised of three brothers share a unique connection that allows them to fuse a groove intensity with ambient psychedelic effects..."

Mantis blends jazz, electronic dance, funk, blues, rock n roll, and other concentrations into a live, highly improvised driven show. Since the band started in July of 2010, the three piece has played a handful of house parties and shows and is steadily gaining recognition in the scene."


Big Beat Tornado
    This high octane, nine-piece funk band from Reading, Pennsylvania (one hour west of Philadelphia). Built on a groove-driven rhythm quartet, fronted by dual female voices and backed by a high powered, three-piece horn section, Big Beat Tornado delivers a blend of original material and interpretations of funky favorites from Franklin to Fishbone. For the last five years, BBT has spread their infectious Funk for New Generation regionally from Manhattan to the Delaware shores, leaving behind a trail of feather boas, sequins and devoted fans. As a follow-up to their first release Groovopolis, the band looks forward to releasing a new full-length CD in the near future.
 George Crow 
    An acoustic musician hailing from Reading, PA. He puts on an energetic acoustic performance combining both original tunes of his own craft and unique innovative covers of other band's songs as well. George plays various festivals and small shows around the Reading area and the West Chester area. He's working on recording a full length album sometime soon and hopes to continue to perform for many years to come.
People Like Us is an Indie rock band hailing from Reading PA: What started as a singer/songwriter collaboration between Rachel Kline and Steven Balthaser soon grew into a rockin' 5-piece band featuring the instantly recognizable guitar stylings of Kyle Seivard, and the sweet, sweet upright bass rhythms of Franklyn Fraser. With the addition of the incredible and diversely talented percussionist, Josh Noel, rocking the drums and adding to the "danceability" of the pop-driven jams. With their combined efforts, the five create a wide range of different tunes, from sultry and soulful jams, to bubbly-pop toe tappers and everything in-between.
5 Piece MIZ
Mike’s roots are in the Wyoming Valley of Northeastern Pennsylvania, where his music reflects the folk, rock, blues, bluegrass and reggae base in which he was nurtured. Privileged to play out since the age of 15, he has had the pleasure to play on stage with such formable artist as Umphrey’s McGee, Jackie Greene, Mark Ford, Jeff Pevar, Don Preston, Chuck Garvey, Al Schnier, Marco Benevento, Jason Hann, Michael Glabicki, Ryo Okumoto, Willy Waldman, Tim Carbone, Scott Sawyer, Merl Saunders, Gordon Stone, Creed Bratton, and many more…. Mike has also opened for acts like Blues Traveler, Shawn Colvin, Derek Trucks Band, Leon Russell, Railroad Earth and Jimmy Herring.
What Mike brings to the stage is courtesy, grace and a vocal that can lament like a young soul in love or grate like a seasoned old blues singer. His solo performances capture the craftsmanship of his songwriting and reveal the depth of their origin. His guitar playing brings some undefinable artistry on both acoustic and electric that is tasteful, poignant, but can make a camera blur. Come out and see this new face of a generation of hope.
