800 lb Gorilla

About

800 lb. Gorilla is a college rock/jam band based in Bloomington, Indiana. With a rock and roll core, the band pulls together funk and jazz influences to create driving, catchy, danceable grooves. A five-piece band, 800lbG places rock-solid guitar, funky keyboards and sax on top of a drums-and-bass rhythm section. The interplay between musicians takes place on an improvisational plane that harkens Herbie Hancock, The Grateful Dead and Steely Dan.

Originally formed by brothers Mark (guitar) and Daniel (lead vox) Humphrey when they were in middle school, the band has evolved from a hard-rock power trio to a funk and jazz juggernaut. Since that time they have added Kwame Newton (keyboards/alto sax), Brian Carson (drums), and Joe Schweitzer (electric bass). As a group, you would be hard-pressed to find five more competent musicians.

800 lb. Gorilla has enjoyed a warm welcome from music lovers as they have developed their show on stages across Indiana and Ohio. Their fanbase is strongest among their college peers in Bloomington, and the jam band community throughout Central Indiana. They are fortunate to have been invited to play festivals this year including Hyperion, Good People Good Times, JorgStock (Eiteljorg Museum), and Taste of Bloomington.
The band intends to take the musical interplay higher, and continue to reach music lovers far and wide.

Indyca was formed in early 2013. Every member comes from a unique musical background. Ranging from ska, punk, funk, dub, dancehall, blues, hip-hop and metal but with one common ground. Reggae. So, they ran with it. Their fusion of genres has a way of getting a metal head and a Deadhead to have a "bro"ment.

Tropidelic formed along the banks of the Cuyahoga River in murky, Kent, Ohio. Fusing energetic funk, reggae and hip-hop, the group built a local following distributing over 10,000 free copies of their first EP, “Rebirth of The Dope” on campuses and street corners throughout the midwest. After relocating to nearby Cleveland, the group bolstered themselves as a staple in the region through constant touring as well as supporting acts like Slightly Stoopid, 311, Pepper, The Dirty Heads, Sublime with Rome, Soja, The Wailers, & many more. In addition to appearances at Warped Tour and Bamboozle Festival (50,000+ attendees), their EP, “Erie Vibes & Irie Tides” received regular radio airplay on area stations in 2011. Tropidelic continued to develop their sound and unflagging live show with the addition of a three piece horn section and percussion. In 2014, the group was shut down by police during a SXSW street performance and was published by national media outlets when their rehearsal space was haphazardly raided by police later that year while executing a warrant for a previous tenant. The group sold out the renown, Grog Shop, in Cleveland, OH on December 31, 2014 and toured the southeast with big-drawing, Badfish (Sublime Tribute) in Spring 2015. Their latest release, “Police State” features cameo appearances by East Coast Reggae friends, Sun-Dried Vibes and Bumpin' Uglies. Tropidelic continues to bring their funky reggae circus across the US in their full size school bus conversion!
