Sep-25-18 07:30 PM Dan Klug Quartet The Dan Klug Quartet is a project led by Brooklyn based drummer Dan Klug. With the fingers for jazz but the love for funk, the trio’s music focuses on playing funky riffs over simple song structures and always leaving room for improvisation. Pulling from classic funk and soul music from the 60’s and 70’s, this project is heavily influenced by bands like The Meters and The J.B.’s, as well as most anything on Stax/Volt and Motown Records.
Sep-25-18 09:00 PM ON THE SUN

On The Sun crafts sleek and modern groove music steeped in classic and contemporary soul, funk, Americana, jazz, and psychedelia. After a successful album release party in NYC on March 1st , this simmering soul juggernaut just completed the first of several national tours it has planned for 2018 in support of its latest release, Gratuity Not Included (Space Tiger Music). The recent trek found the band playing alongside artists such as Lisa Loeb, Robert Randolph, Michael Franti and many more onboard the 4-day floating music festival cruise Sail Across The Sun. They also played a string of intimate Sofar Sounds shows in the midwest and east coast and made some special appearances in Austin, Texas at SXSW and Red Gorilla Music Festival.

Gratuity Not Included is an artistic milestone for the band, as it represents the best capture yet of the span of On The Sun’s artistic continuum, showcasing its always-shifting expanded lineups with added horns, synthesizers, and lush female guest vocalists. It also represents a new era of assured artistry after a period of tireless touring and soul searching. The self-produced seven-track collection, favors full band live on-the-floor takes as the core foundation to construct songs, and then reimagines these recordings with soulful and tasteful experimental studio wizardry.

Select standouts from the album include “Amen,” “Don’t Give Back,” and “Imagining You.” The fractured minimalist funk of “Amen” sprung to life from a loose-limbed jam that with sleek production touches veers into lush, gospel-tinged modern R&B while “Don’t Give Back” conjures the steamy emotionality of 70’s soul but with a modern, sleepy–eyed behind-the-beat groove. The horn and organ driven soul jam, “Imaging You,” evokes late-period Motown Stevie Wonder, playfully contrasting uplifting musicality with lovelorn lyrics. When listening to it you may find yourself euphorically dancing around the room singing along to lyrics of masochistic heartbreak.

Up next, On The Sun will issue a vinyl version of Gratuity Not Included this summer and another as-yet untitled collection of new music later this fall. The band will spend much of 2018 on the road supporting the album including a series of east coast shows in May, an appearance at Off The Record music festival in Atlantic City, NJ June 7-9, and a New Year’s Eve show at the Bisbee Royale Theater in AZ which will kick off their first ever west coast tour in January of 2019.

Sep-26-18 07:30 PM Meridian Lights

Out of Brooklyn, NY, Meridian Lights is the song-writing duo of Bradley Valentin and Yohimbe Sampson. They believe that ART is the root word of “articulate” and strive to express the pure emotion, thrill, passion and renewal that exists in life’s most perfect as well as challenging moments. 

Meridian Lights have many influences and this can be seen in the way they simultaneously exist in separate multi genre universes. In their rawest most innate incarnation they are an acoustic duo, they also take a digital form as an electroexperimental production group with pulsing rhythms and cascading vocals. At it’s elemental core  Meridian Lights is a 4 piece aggressively optimistic Rock n Roll band (Brian Mason -Drums/Jonathan Blake -Bass) with a live show that audiences describe as being “a once in a lifetime experience”. 

There pursuit of expression has brought them all over the United States and Canada. The honesty of their craft has led them to be featured by: Moscot, Fader, NPR, BBC, Milk, Saint Heron, Afropunk, Okayafrica, MTV, Backwoods Festival, MTV, Northside Festival, NXNE, Brooklyn Museum, Everyday People and NY1.

Sep-26-18 09:00 PM The Kennedy Administration

A dynamic presence on every bandstand she graces, singer Ms Kennedy brings a captivating soulfulness to the proceedings on Kennedy Administration’s self-titled debut.

With credits ranging from Stevie Wonder, Gregory Porter and Andra Day to Lauryn Hill and a roster of acclaimed “musician’s musicians” in between, Kennedy Administration’s instrumental trio has seen, heard and played a lot of great music over the past few years.

The band has been refining their sound and irresistible stage presence for three years at their Groove residency in NYC. With this quartet’s singular namesake at the microphone, Kennedy, you’ll experience right away how hard it is not to be captured by her joy and energy. Forging a sound and identity for itself, Kennedy Administration is creating sensory, soulful modern music with elements of jazz, R&B, hip-hop and pop judiciously applied. You will move to the rhythms of the drummer Nat Townsley and bassist Chelton Grey. You’ll feel every vibe Ondre J plays when the funk, jazz and R&B sounds leave the keys and bop your head to Vin Landolfi’s guitar solos.

Kennedy’s joy and passion are contagious. This particular Kennedy Administration is ushering in a brand new “Great Society” of sweet music.
