Big Something
Big Something
A 6 piece powerhouse with a sound that is both unique and timeless, Big Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk, and improvisation to take listeners on a journey through a myriad of musical styles. It's no secret why this group has quickly become one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the Southeast. Soaring guitars, EWI (electronic wind instrument), synths, horns and alluring vocal hooks rise to the top of their infectious collection of songs and represent a sound that has caught the ears of such revered stalwarts as Umphrey's McGee, Moon Taxi, Galactic, moe., Robert Randolph, and even The B52s, who have all tapped Big Something as direct support.

The band released their 5th studio album The Otherside on April 20th, 2018 as a follow up to their 2017 album Tumbleweed. The Otherside was recorded at Echo Mountain Studios in Asheville, NC with the help of Grammy-nominated producer and Carolina Music Awards Lifetime Achievement recipient - John Custer (Corrosion of Conformity) who has produced all 5 of the bands albums.

On The Otherside, Big Something continues to build upon the post-apocalyptic peyote trip imagery from Tumbleweed, concluding the story of a nomad who has made it to the other side of his journey wandering through the night towards a desert sunrise. The album also showcases a different musical side of the band with a heavier, more focused and soulful collection of 8 songs including "Smoke Signal," and "Wildfire." 

Big Something is Nick MacDaniels (vocals, guitar), Casey Cranford (sax, EWI), Jesse Hensley (lead guitar), Ben Vinograd (drums), Doug Marshall (bass), and Josh Kagel (keys, trumpet).

Skyfoot
Skyfoot
Skyfoot is a powerful jam-rock band from Boston, MA. Forming in early 2011, the band has played 200+ shows all across the United States. You'll find them rocking New England regularly and on down the eastern seaboard in the Carolinas and Virginias. In summer 2014 the band spent 2 months touring the Northwest U.S. with shows in Colorado, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Montana.

Skyfoot plays a variety of genres from funk, rock, & bluegrass to sonic landscapes and fusion. Their live show features tight compositions and jamming that give way to memorable moments that are recorded and archived. If you dig the sounds of Phish, The Derek Trucks Band, Bruce Hornsby, Grateful Dead, you'll be stoked you heard Skyfoot!

Tyler Arnott (guitar) thoughtfully threads through songs and jams with his genuine and tasty finger style playing. Eric McEwen (Keyboards and Lead Vocals) doubles as the bassist with crazy left hand lines. Aaron Morey (Drums) fills out the rest with a dynamic approach to jam drumming with reverence to all the best drummers of the scene.

Skyfoot's 2012 debut album "Eternal Bend" features nine original songs including favorites Maybe Mississippi, Indigo, and The Mountain. On July 1, 2014 the band released their 2nd studio album entitled "Room For Space" recorded in West Springfield, MA at the Rotary Records.
