Hayley Jane and the Primates
Hayley Jane & The Primates combine Americana, soul and rock & roll with rich lyrical imagery that electrifies the heart. At the helm is rising star, Hayley Jane. She leads the band through an infectious live experience filled with powerful vocal range, vibrant dance choreography and dramatic performance that captivates her devoted fanbase.
Hailing from Boston MA, the band was the winner of the 2014 New England Music Awards’ Roots/Americana Act Of The Year and has been performing at premiere venues and festivals across the country. Hayley Jane has also established herself as a strong female presence in the national music scene and was recently featured in the RELIX “Women Who Rock” Issue.
The band’s first full-length album, Gasoline, was engineered by Brian Wallace of Sublime and released in 2014. The album was recorded during a West Coast Tour that kicked off at the iconic Whisky a Go Go and ended with a Monday Night Football performance at Qualcomm Stadium.
Hayley Jane and the Primates released their sophomore album “We’re Here Now” in the Fall of 2017. Produced by Craig Brodhead of Turkuaz, the album carries an energy and poetry that represents the best of American music.

The Groove Orient
The musical collective known at The Groove Orient started out as a school project that developed into a journey to create and perform live music around the world while transforming the musical landscape of their hometown.
Founded in 2013, The Groove Orient was assembled to perform a one-time show for the WPRK college radio station music festival, Fox Fest. With the success of the show, one week later they found themselves in the Full Sail University recording studios cutting their first single titled “Rush.” That summer, the band began writing music and rehearsing several times a week, eventually landing themselves a weekly residency at one of Orlando’s top live music bars, Tanqueray’s. You can still find the
band here every Tuesday night they are in town!
The following year, The Groove Orient released two EP’s titled “Welcome to the Show” and “Generation Y” which launched multiple nationwide tours with the goal of spreading their music far and wide. During this time, the band was awarded Best Experimental Act and Best Jazz Act by Orlando Weekly’s Best of Orlando Guide. They have been getting crowds to Rock n Roll from Suwannee Hulaween to Orange Blossom Jamboree, Hometeam New Year’s Rally and everywhere in between.
