Lucid

Barreling out of the northern woods like a grizzled bear on speed, Lucid, the hardest working band in the North Country (Upstate NY and VT), careens across the musical spectrum as a V8 blend of genres emerge- from jazz to rock, honky-tonk blues to reggae.       Formed in 2003, the latest album from the sextet, “Dewdmanwah”, was released this past fall to regional acclaim in the northeast.       Wi…

th 2010 aimed at being their breakthrough year, keyboardist Andy Deller looks forward to gracing the country with a healthy dose of Adirondack soul and passion. “Our sound is catchy yet eclectic. The songs get stuck in your head, and there is a very distinct tone,” said Deller. “The influences and the styles we play are wide ranging. But always at the center of it all is a thick thread of rock tying everything together. Our music has a little something for everybody. Audiences all over are very appreciative. We get applause, we get hooting and hollering, and sometimes nakedness. They’re always dancing.” Roaming the nation on their graffiti-doused, Neal Cassady-esque psychedelic bus, “Lucy”, the rock bandits roll joyously along the road towards musical stardom, taking no prisoners, and always having fun in a sometimes-unforgiving industry.    “We just want people to go away thinking ‘that was a good time’,” Deller said. “And maybe for the next week or two they can’t get that one song out of their heads, but it’s a good thing. It’s like burping four hours after a meal, and saying, ‘oh yeah, that lasagna was good’.”       “Living in a ski town, one constantly hears the adage, ‘if you like it now, you should have been here 10 years ago, before all these people showed up’,” said Garret K. Woodward (Roving Festival Writer/State of Mind Music Magazine). “The funny thing is, in 10 years, I’ll probably be saying the same thing about Lucid and the unforgettable presence they create onstage and out of your speakers.”

Gang of Thieves

Hailing out of Burlington, Vermont, the Gang has been awarded “Best Band in
State” (Vermont 2011) by the New England Music Awards. Gang of Thieves has
now performed all over the United States, including a show in Albany, NY with
Skid Row. From Headhunters in Austin, TX during SXSW to the Hard Rock Cafe
in San Francisco, CA, they hav
e stolen hearts and been met with absolute enthusiasm everywhere they play!

Originally founded January 2009. Gang of Thieves has endured a wild three-
year ride of DIY nation-wide tours and both self-produced and professional
recordings. While the origin and beginnings of the Gang are remembered fondly
and key to making the band who they are today, only recently did they become
the powerhouse group they were ment to be.

This is largely in part to the addition of guitarist Leonard Sokol and
Drummer Deven Massarone. The raw talent, musical intuition and dedication to
the touring lifestyle both new members bring finally complete the Gang as the
face of the Rock and Roll future in America.

The Chroma Concept

The Chroma Concept was formed shortly after New Year of 2011. They met at Berklee College of Music, where they developed their vision and honed their sound. The group seeks to combine instrumental music with electronic styles. Centered around improvisation, they mix grooves such as Funk, Drum’n’Bass & Trip Hop freely within the framework of their jazz-influenced compositions. The group is currentl…y Ezra Platt (guitar/efx), Mike Clairmont (bass/synth bass/efx), Ben Atkind (drums) and Joao Nogueira (keys). They have already performed at many of New England’s premier nightclubs during their first year, including the Middle East Upstairs & Corner (Summer ’11 residency), The Wonder Bar, Johnny D’s, Church Boston, Stone Church NH, Parima Burlington, Sullivan Hall NYC, Mill St. Brews and Copperfields. In January of 2012 the band released The Escape, an EP that musically illustrates the first chapter of their musical journey. During the summer of 2012, The Chroma Concept was featured on music festivals such as Uphoria, Camp Coldbrook, Freak Jazz On Great Bay and Wormtown Music Festival. Now approaching their third year, The Chroma Concept is poised to unveil the next chapter.  This is a band that is in the midst of infiltrating the US creative music scene with their mind-bending, powerful music.
