The Fun Boys

The Fun Boys are a Maryland based band and prefer to be called "The Fun Boys". One time on the way to summer camp a lady bug slipped into my slipper, what a friend! It's okay though, I got no bugs on me.  I went to Aunt JJ's last night to eat some ho-hos and got a hella-belly ache.  This band is cool I guess.  It hurts to play instruments, but it's okay!  I got no bugs on me (not)! I know the guy who owns this bar too.  Cool guy!  Lots-o-tats!  I can't wait to get tattoos too, dude.  Me and Sam and Colin and Matt and Andrew and Haas, we got lifer tattoos. Mine says "DOES MY FACE LO" and his says "OK LIKE A DRAGON".  Too fun! #toofun  The Fun Boys are from Frederick, MD.  They consist of 4 members at the same skill level.  You gotta see it.  It's a nightmare.

Bencoolen

Bencoolen

Bencoolen is no longer the band you know from their first EPs. The band has grown around a new lineup, toured, and rehearsed more than ever. "Spotlight" was the introduction to the new wave. "The Crown" will continue it at the end of September 2017. The band is already touring relentlessly to save up toward another single and a full length recording project in the Summer of 2018. Ask anyone who has seen this lineup live. Bencoolen is tighter, raunchier, and more energetic with every passing show as approach fifty dates in 2017 alone.
The transition out of 2016 was a hectic time for Bencoolen.  The outfit found themselves ramping up regional performances to touring the East Coast.  Bencoolen has evolved into a maximalist rock group featuring soaring vocals, stunning guitar work, and soulful saxophone lines. Together they have been hired as opening support for Big Something, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, Atlas Road Crew, the Mowgli’s, and Marcus King Band. Bencoolen has also picked up festival slots in NC, VA, and DE, headlined by a stop at Firefly Music Festival in 2017.
One No Depression writer described Bencoolen's live act as, “Everything I had hoped for. Their enthusiasm and energy filled the room as the crowd looked on, filling up the venue with a prominent and boisterous vibrancy.”
Bencoolen is now touring in support of their upcoming single, "The Crown," and previously released single, “Spotlight” which was featured in a Paste Magazine column and with Live Music Daily. The recording was built on a live room recording at Inner Ear studio in Virginia with legendary engineer Don Zientara. Don has recorded for a wide range of artists from the Foo Fighters to Fugazi.

Memory House

Memory House formed in the middle of 2017 by a group of friends who enjoy playing music and revisiting the past through musical experiences; Hence the name, "Memory House." We play a mixture of everything from 90's nostalgia, 80's rock, 2000's pop, and everything in between. 

What started out as a fun jam band, quickly turned to a covering of the classics for friends and family. We began playing birthday parties, cookouts, and other private events that soon led to a following of people that wish we would play local bars, festivals, and public venues for entertainment... 

....And here we are.

Hurricane Hoss and the Perfect Storm

"...honest-to-goodness country splendor anchored by fiddle playing and down-home vocal charm that endear immediately to even the lightest of fans of the genre...” in Wilmington

“…catty, cool, authentic…smashing the sounds straight outta Nashville.” philadelphia weekly
 

HURRICANE HOSS has blown through the juke joints and watering holes of America, the perfect example of a classical good-girl gone outlaw. She’s shot whiskey in the Midwestern Wilds, danced to zydeco in Louisiana, fallen in love in the Rockies, and two-stepped on top of broken hearts in Nashville. With fiddle, banjo, and guitar in tow, Hoss sings the stories of her travels and travails, as well as traditional songs of the American experience. Fans of western swing (Asleep at the Wheel, The Time Jumpers) and vintage country (Jimmy Martin, Patsy Cline, Glen Campbell) will easily find a place for Hoss in their ears and hearts.

 

When performing with her band THE PERFECT STORM, Hoss calls on the finest session players and hottest pickers to color her songs with a truly unique sound. Driven by a vintage country vibe, Hoss & the Storm aim to entertain and engage the audience with funny jokes, colorful stories, and heartfelt songs. And of course, dazzle with lots of rhinestones!

The Milestones w/ Muchismo

Rock music gets compartmentalized a lot. Punk, Indie, Classic, Grunge – some bands define one particular genre and others are able to mix and mingle the differing characteristics of each. The Milestones give us music that meshes the best qualities of each genre and provide us with solid rock sounds that doesn’t need it’s own specific category. They’re a little bit in-your-face like punk, they’re a little growly like grunge, and they get you moving like indie-dance rock.

The Milestones are a quartet based out of Baltimore, Maryland and got their start in 2014 playing around the local scene. Their EP, Old Souls, was released that same year. They released their sophomore EP, Honey, this year.


Muchismo
Aka Rose God. East Coast Millennial, Part Existential, Part Klingon. Fueled by booze to make RnB & rock Steal-Your-Girl Anthems for the Kids and their walkman radios.

Woodgrove & Minks Miracle
Sep

9:30pm 9:30pm

Woodgrove & Minks Miracle

Woodgrove: Singing songs about depression and breakups with a little too much poppy falsetto and nowhere near enough fuzz. Woodgrove came into being, as did the genre ’Paxil Pop,’ after a breakup and a long summer of introspection. After a number of solo shows, Jared Hall (guitar/vox) was joined by Max Holiday (drums), Logan Leverett (guitar), and Jake Wentzel (bass) to move the band forward in a much heavier and all-encompassing direction. While Hall still plays solo shows with the suitcase drum, the full band has become the prime directive for the group. Focusing on a blend of ambience and groove, on polarizing songwriting and introspection, the four-piece is welcoming the chaos that is 2017 by trying their best to play music as a coping mechanism. They are currently in the process of self-producing their debut EP, set to be released in the fall of 2017.

Mink's Miracle Medicine: Mink’s Miracle Medicine began in 2013 to explore the potential of sonic minimalism in country music. What could happen if each song was reduced to its purest form?: A telecaster guitar, weeping plucking and gliding over harmony, a simple three-piece drum kit crooning alongside, and above it, a singular powerful voice. 

The idea birthed reality. Melissa Wright and Daniel Zezeski played their first show together to a packed show in a comic book shop. Since then, they have gone on to play all over the United States, indulging their deep-seated fascination with freight trains and cross-country road trips. Citing influence from artists like Patsy Cline, Hank Williams, Neil Young, and The Beatles, their sound is raw, earthy and smells like a long and winding road that weaves around an undeniable longing, calling to mind early Tom Petty and shades of Patti Smith.

Individually and together, the pair have connected and collaborated with musicians around Washington D.C. for more than a decade. After graduating high school in the rural suburbs of the District, Melissa attended Berklee College of Music where she studied vocal performance, specializing in jazz, gospel, and other American roots music styles. She has performed with bluegrass legends Alison Krauss, Sierra Hull, and Ralph Stanley, as well as serving as an alternate on singer-songwriter Ben Folds’ Boston Symphony Hall Tour. After completing her degree, she moved back to Virginia to play upright bass in the up-and-coming traditional jazz group The Bumper Jacksons. Melissa continues to honor the local musical tradition by presenting a series of tributes to the great Patsy Cline, most recently collaborating with Jess Eliot Myhre of the Bumper Jacksons, Letitia VanSant, and Karen Collins to put on a tribute to Patsy Cline hosted by the Institute of Musical Traditions. 

Foregoing the conservatory method, Daniel Zezeski got his start with punk and ska bands in his early teens. Donning a green mohawk, Daniel frequented a music venue owned by his uncle in Scranton, PA, and received a musical education one can only get from standing in the wings of a show, where one can truly see, feel, and breathe with the music and the audience. When he came of age, he ran away from home to hop freight trains, seeing the American landscape in the same way he saw music in his youth: fearlessly up close. On these trips, he carried an Epiphone Hummingbird guitar and began to write. The Hummingbird was destroyed in an accident that left him wheelchair bound for months, during which he learned to fingerpick like Leo Kottke and solidified his musical prowess. He has performed on stage with Lake, The Dangerous Ponies, Chamomile and Whiskey, and The Menzingers. His song “Casey” is featured on The Menzinger’s Epitaph Records release “On The Impossible Past”.

Mink’s Miracle Medicine continue to write, record, travel, and perform together, ultimately on a quest of true connection between musician and audience, to deliver the listener truth and beauty in its most pure, honest, distilled form.

Daniel./Jeremy Bursich/Jonathan Townes/Tea Wiggs

Daniel. is an up and coming Singer songwriter from Los Angeles, California. His wide range of influences, from Owen and Into It Over It to The Smashing Pumpkins and Rancid, are portrayed in his unique brand of emo acoustic folk. He is currently on a national tour in support of his debut album, Home.

Tea Wiggs is a singer-songwriter from Arcata, California. With two current releases through Fairly Modest Records, her sound is characterized by ukulele ballads drowned in a myriad of ethereal effects and intensely emotional topics reflecting on her own struggle with mental illness. She draws influence from familiar freak folk pioneers such as Paul Baribeau, Kimya Dawson, and Daniel Johnston. She is currently on a national tour in support of her most recent release, Gutter Gums.

Jeremy Bursich is always working on something. With seven self-produced albums under his belt in the last five years and a eighth album in production, he still manages to find time to manage Fairly Modest Records, host open mics, organize and perform in concerts, edit and construct music videos, and wrap his head in plaster of paris for his hellishly playful sculptures. Bursich is not only a prolific presence in the artistic sphere but also a pillar of his local musical community. He has become notorious for his haunting sound and labyrinthine lyrics. Drawing from such experts of raw grit and dry dissent as Neil Young, Tom Waits, and Leonard Cohen, Bursich balances this saw-blade sound with influences from the bittersweet ballads of the likes of Elliott Smith, Spencer Krug, and Bill Callahan. Oscillating from sweet and sour tunes of brutally honest introspection to hard hitting jabs into sociopolitical subjects, Bursich portrays a wide and penetrative range of human experience.

Jonathan Townes is an American composer, guitarist, singer, producer and engineer. He attended Berklee College of Music in 1988, majoring in Jazz composition. While at Berklee, Jonathan began writing jazz tunes. Jonathan’s first professional release was Glossolalia (1996), which featured seven of his songs plus four improvised tracks. The band included keyboardist JohnMedeski (Medeski,Martin &Wood; John Scoeld), bassist Neal Fountain (Jimmy Herring, AlexMachacek), and drummer Jef Sipe (Aquarium Rescue Unit, Jonas Hellborg, Leftover Salmon). After moving to Brooklyn, NY (1998), he began playing occasional gigs in and around New York City. It was around this time he began recording music at Peter Karl Studios which ultimately led to a job there, as a recording, mixing and mastering engineer. He has since produced 7 self-released projects for his Giglaeoplexis record label. Jonathan also played with Ray Greiche (Redshell); producing, mixing and mastering Redshell’s eponymous debut release. The recording of Redshell marked his transition from jazz/improvised music to rock/pop/electronic music, culminating in the the release Lookatchurself ReggieMeasuresworth.
