Stone Giant - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Stone Giant
Founded in 2012 by guitarist Sebastian Fernandez and keyboardist Joao Nogueira at Berklee College of Music in Boston MA, Stone Giant specializes in an energetic fusion of different types of rock music. Influenced by artists ranging from Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath to Stevie Wonder and Tame Impala, the group played top venues in New York and Boston last year, and are primed for an even bigger 2013.
Sweethook - (Set time: 7:00 PM)
Sweethook
Sweethook is a roots - groove band that rocks. Sweethook was founded by Scott Cornwell who performs with his home made, eight string electric banjo. By running it through various effects he gets a variety of sounds ranging from deep bass to crunch guitar and yes, down home banjo . Matt Shanley plays an electronic conga with hundreds of sounds that let him create the driving rhythms at the heart of Sweethook's music. The trio is completed by Jazelyn Montanez who adds her sweet, soulfull vocals to the mix. By running the instruments and the vocals through various loopers, the band quickly builds from an intimate duet, to a powerful, many layered sound. To get it you've got to hear it. Hope to see you soon !
Diamond Jig - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Diamond Jig
Diamond Jig are a group of friends from the NY area who love to create original music.

We are inspired by our influences (jam and classic rock bands), our audiences, and each other.

Dig the Jig.
The Summarily Dismissed - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
The Summarily Dismissed
Unbeknownst to the world, Todd Rundgren and Laura Nyro had a secret daughter. She grew up to be as wacky, comedic, and as immune to musical categorization as her father, while her pianistic style, vocal range, and physical appearance clearly indicated who her mother was. And, like both her parents, she became a composer, a lyricist, and a public eccentric!

Okay, so maybe Ari Shagal's parents aren't literally Todd and Laura . . . but, musically speaking, they might as well be! And, to extend the familial metaphor, you might say that Donald Fagen was Ari's uncle, and Stevie Wonder was her godfather. And there was Ari, in New York, ready to parade her bizarrely eclectic work before the ears of the listening public . . . but, in order to do so, she needed the right vocalists. Well, she lucked out, big time, when she happened upon the golden soprano voice of Ferima Faye, a native New Yorker whose incredible vocal talents are rivaled only by her incredibly creative and visionary fashion design; and Matthew Lomeo, a soulful baritone whose raw, magnetic voice continually made his native town of Utica sit bolt upright and shake its collective booty. Together, these three whippersnappers teamed up with producer and guitarist Joe Davi (known for his work with Ne-Yo, Mya, and Jay-Z), bassist Pat O'Leary (a member of Bob Dorough's trio), and drummer Eric Halvorson (a frequent member of Ute Lemper's touring ensemble). The resulting album, To Each!, also features an appearance by the illustrious jazz vocalist Kenny Washington, whose talents are incredible beyond description, in addition to conga and bongo work by percussionist Nydia Mata, who was, for many years, a constant member of Laura Nyro's band. After an intense year plus, throwing themselves into the recording process at full intensity, the members of the Summarily Dismissed are proud to introduce their album To Each! to the world . . . and look forward to making even more music!
