Hailed as a breakthrough act to watch in 2017, lespecial, based in Boston and upstate New York, have established themselves as innovators and tastemakers on their own unique trajectory. “Disguised as an average power trio from Boston, lespecial creeps around corners and reaches into the darkest depths of the absurd. lespecial is meticulous, creative and defiant; eclectic, multi-talented and driven. The band prides itself in extending the boundaries of musical ability, rebelliously laying waste to the limits of popular music.” (Ragin Randy Entertainment) Labeled with such unique descriptions as “dark future groove” or “death funk” to “trance metal” or “haunted house party music”, it is tough to put one’s finger on this dangerous and determined trifecta’s distinct sound. A lespecial set brings their signature blend of psychedelic metal infused funk along with deep, thumping synths and 808s that will have your hips swaying as quick as your head banging. From the band’s origins as three friends in high school in the woods of Connecticut who shared a passion for building unique instruments and hitting them with drum sticks, through studying music at a collegiate level to now running their own music school and studio, The Music Cellar, in Millerton NY, Jonny Grusauskas (guitar/synth/sampler/percussion/vocals), Luke Bemand (bass/synth/percussion) and Rory Dolan’s (drums/samples) unique chemistry is what gives them their incomparable personality. As Steve Morse, Boston Globe writer and Berklee College of Music professor, claims, “They are virtuoso players- and they really listen to each other closely, which is what raises them apart from today’s progressive wannabees”. After several, eclectic EP releases, their debut album, “Omnisquid”, released in 2015, finds the band “jumping through periods of hypnotic rhythms, catchy riffs, and synth grooves fit for a club… throw in a healthy dose of heavy metal and punk influenced guitar, and you have one of the most interesting new albums out there.” (Monkeygoose Magazine). ITDJENTS claims “For fans of King Crimson, Tool, Nine Inch Nails and Battles this is definitely the album for you”. The band’s expansive catalogue of singles and videos, including arrangements of everyone from Kanye West to Skrillex to Fela Kuti, is keeping all eyes and ears on lespecial as they prove in clubs and festivals nationwide why Relix Magazine claims “Amidst the rest of the noise, lespecial is the squeaky wheel that demands attention.”

Blackberry Jam is an urban alternative band formed in the late fall of 96. The band has emerged as one of the more eclectic units around by playing and often times merging raw heavy rock and chill-out soul together. Originating in Indianapolis, Indiana...the band's nucleus consist of founding member/ bassist Ron "Poncho" Hedrick, lead singer Jumbo Shrimp, Brian Weir Harden on guitar, Jerry Gates on drums, and Sean "Solar Power" Hedrick as MC extraordinaire/back-up vox/ rhythmatic elements, and recently added Joe Burton on percussionand sound enhancement. BBJ is committed to presenting a whole new sound based on the diverse attitude the band brings to their music and live shows. The group whose line-up consist of talented multi-genre music lovers... proves the unique sound as well as style of Blackberry Jam is intentional.

BBJ has compiled a pretty strong resume along the way by being the only band from Indianapolis, IN to open for top funk and soul acts such as: Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, Van Hunt, Here Come The Mummies, and Ebony Rhythm Funk Campaign(throw-back legendary funk and soul band from Indianapolis, IN). Noted music festivals Blackberry Jam has played at are: The King of The Skate Park (an all day BMX and Skateboard/music festival held at the Major Taylor Velodrome complex in Indianapolis,IN) which was organized by BBJ band member Sean "Solar Power" Hedrick, The Midwest Music Summit, and back in Oct 2008 in the beautiful landscape of Deerfields Mills River, NC the band performed at the Loki Festival which included: The Roots, JJ Grey And Mofro, Toots & The Maytals, Cake, George Clinton, and countless other notable acts. BBJ's many urban channels put them in a class of very few. They have played many venues ranging from live music bars to cozy clubs all the way up to large college universities.

Not a lot of bands are able to touch as many different people and diverse crowds the way BBJ can. The members of the band are good spiritual minded people who believe in pure music. Through dedication and love for the urban music scene local to world-wide...Blackberry Jam's only alternative is to stay committed to providing its power and finesse to an already great culture.

For Willie Waldman every gig is like a band debut. With one important exception: Every member is not only talented but vastly experienced. That is the intrigue of the Willie Waldman Project. The band is ever-changing as Waldman pulls noted musicians from all styles and geographical locations to play free form music created on the spot. This represents the true history of Jazz!

"The artists have so much freedom, It's a cool vibe" Terry Saffold said "Waldman is a genius at bringing diverse players together". It is always fresh and exciting, no one in the industry is doing what Waldman has accomplished" and the fans dig it.

Although Waldmans musical career began with the Chesterton High School Marching band in Chesterton, In. Waldman believes his real training began in Memphis TN. While attending Memphis State on a music scholarship, it was on Beale Street that Waldman met several musical legends that he feels groomed him for what the Willie Waldman Project is known for today.

The Willie Waldman Project is celebrating the 25th year of FreeWorld the band he co-founded in college. They received a brass note on Beale Street October 6th 2012.
