— Whistlebot is a five-piece jam/funk/jazz/rock band based in Boston, MA. Inspired by groups including the Disco Biscuits, Lotus, Medeski, Martin, and Wood, Phish, TAUK, John Scofield, Queens of the Stone Age, and many others, Whistlebot creates original music that straddles the intersections of jazz and rock, orchestration and improvisation, brooding jams and bright grooves.
The Van Burens are a family band of weirdos who love to make music together. The Official Band of Quincy, MA (the City of Presidents), the VBs are dedicated to the pursuit of fun, energetic shows that move folks to dance, laugh, and feel feelings. These songwriter nerds serve up reggae, funk, and rock music in the tradition of family ensembles like The Wailers, Parliament, and The Band with a dose of humor.
All VBs lend vocals; the distinctive leads are are backed by powerful group harmonies, making each song, each set, and each concert unique. Most importantly, the Van Burens enjoy each other's company onstage and off; their love of music-making and professional playfulness throws a joyous vibe from the stage to audience.
Dewpoint is a four-piece jam band from Boston, Massachusetts. Establishing their current lineup in early 2015, they have quickly secured fans across the northeast, playing many staple venues in the area (ie. Brighton Music Hall, The Middle East Downstairs, The Spot Underground, The Stone Church). Their musical style spans many genres, weaving laid-back funk, soul-tinged jazz, progressive rock, and psychedelic grooves seamlessly under irresistibly catchy lead lines. On any night, Dewpoint pushes songs to new limits by exploring new feels, taking improvisational risks, and concocting set lists that allow musical themes and soaring melodies to be revisited and re-imagined throughout the course of a show. With an ever-expanding catalog of original music and noteworthy covers, every show is a unique musical experience.
