The Captain Midnight Band plays "Waterbed Rock & Roll", a unique hybrid of Classic Rock, Jam, R&B, and blue poetry.

The Captain Midnight Band creates "Water Bed Rock & Roll" for the mind, booty, and soul. Crunchy Rock Guitar, Soaring Vocal Harmonies, and thick R&B grooves create a sonic landscape for the band's suggestive, Sci-Fi imagery and improvisational interplay.

Formed in New Orleans in 2002, The Captain Midnight Band stays true to the Crescent City's celebratory heritage, turning every show into a sweating, throbbing event, interspersed with humor, eroticism, and inspired jams.

Flattering comparisons to genre-defying acts such as P-Funk, Frank Zappa, and Ween are evident in the relationship between band and audience. Striking visuals and an ever-changing set list keep fans coming back for more.

Midnight's style has infiltrated a variety of musical realms. Bob Weir, moe., Merl Saunders, Dumpstaphunk, Galactic, Cornmeal, Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Cypress Hill, Jimmy Herring Band, Dark Star Orchestra, Emmitt-Nershi Band, New Mastersounds, and The 2 Live Crew are just a few musical entities Midnight has either shared the stage or bills with.

Major influences include The Grateful Dead, Steely Dan, Funkadelic, George Lucas, KISS, Boz Scaggs, Little Feat, Joe Walsh, Frank Zappa, Joni Mitchell, Todd Rundgren, and Richard Pryor.

Christian cut his teeth on the dance floors of the midwest rave scene of the late 90's.
With his diverse music palate, he's had the opportunity to open for Frankie Bones, Mark Farina, GRiZ, G Jones, Manic Focus, and the Floozies.

You don't merely witness Christian -- you experience him. Watching Christian perform is a lesson in technical DJ proficiency, a proficiency that has grabbed the attention and respect of the local Indianapolis Bass scene.

To him, tracks aren't just songs. They are scenes to a film, chapters to a novel. And it's the narrative approach to his dancefloor assault that reveals his true level of expertise.

You're about to embark on a very exciting adventure.
A journey which along the way will bring to you new color, new dimension and a new experience. Let your minds eye go wild.

Every atom of your being is animated by its action.

From an invisible source comes blunted breaks, deep bass, ethnic elements from around the world, lush keyboards,warm brass and samples from the caverns of yore...

The music emitting from this jukebox takes you on a kaleidoscopic journey thru the past, present and future. A deep space beam which hints at dub, hip hop, downtempo, soul, funk, latin, jazz.
All captured forever in Hi-Fi.

...I am one with its rhythm...

While Kaleidoscope Jukebox is centered around the production of Clint Carty, he is very thankful to work with such great artists as Andrew, Aaron, Meredith, Eric and others.
Bless you all!

SHY GUY SAYS is an electronic music producer and performer straight from the Mushroom Kingdom, an 8bit villain ready to destroy any party at any time and somehow leave his victims wanting more. His eclectic, yet upbeat and danceable sound can best be described as a mixture of Hip Hop, Glitch Hop, Dubstep, Trap, and Drum N Bass.

It's know for its heavy rhythmic swagger, yet at the same time can be lush and loaded with dirty synth bass sounds, warm ambiance, and 8-bit glitches.

About

Tearing out of Buffalo NY, rock/groove powerhouse Aqueous has built a name for themselves nationally, following years of touring and high profile sets at festivals like Summer Camp, Peach Festival, Moe.Down, Catskill Chill, The Frendly Gathering, and countless others. Aqueous has built a reputation for bringing high energy and tireless effort to their craft, and fans rave about the uniqueness and power behind every performance. Featured as one of Relix Magazine’s “On The Verge” artists, there seems no limit to the quartet’s journey to the top.

With three studio albums under their belts, and their critically acclaimed live collection “Live Nugs”, Aqueous is as strong in composing as they are at communicating and improvising during their shows. Their onstage persona is infectious and undeniable; their lifelong friendship stands as a testament to the tightness of the music. While the band is relatively young, they are polished – check them out as soon as you can, and discover firsthand what the buzz is all about.
