Congo Sanchez (of Thievery Corporation)

The evolution of this ensemble has happened naturally over the past year and a half. Having already captivated audiences from coast to coast, and now with the completion their first full length record, ‘Dealin With This’, it is clear that Congo, Haile and Flex are on the rise as a cutting edge musical force.

Congo’s time as the drummer for Thievery Corporation has clearly had an effect on his ear as he continues to explore the down-tempo, reggae mezcla, with an obvious hip-hop overtone to the composition. Listeners of ‘Dealin With This’  will hear an array of sounds and rhythms, paying homage to the roots of music with thick layers of percussion; signature to the Congo Sanchez sound. All of this accompanied by a conscious message and an authentic lyrical approach creates a superb listening experience.

Teddy Midnight

Brooklyn based Teddy Midnight is a synth driven electronic trio, blurring the lines of Electronica and Live band improvisation. Blending House, Techno, Breakbeat and drum and bass, Teddy Midnight captures those magic moments on the dance floor with the ethereal mix of electronic and live instruments.

The band’s diverse catalogue spans the past 4 years, with one Album and two EP’s. These releases showcase their ability to not just play many different genres, but also produce all of the music they record. They have often been coined as “Live Producers”, as they incorporate electronic elements from their albums into their live performances. Since their love of House music drives them to create dance-inducing tracks, directed for the dancefloor, they use live improvisation to take their audience into new worlds that expand on their album work. In this way, they blend songs together, creating a patchwork of ever-changing electronic grooves, making it unique for every crowd.

Cosmosis Jones

Birthed from the loins of a St. Michael’s residence hall, four piece livetronica ensemble Cosmosis Jones has evolved from raging all improv house party sets to establishing a tangible presence in the Burlington jam community with a growing catalogue of original music to match. What has served to set the band apart from the seemingly never ending onslaught of up and coming jambands is their willingness to truly break free from formulaic live structure and draw real-time inspiration from feel and emotion alone. This spontaneous motive leads to textured musical peaks and valleys that would impossible to plan for, making for a unique and exciting live set time in and time out.
