Mar-30-17 06:30 PM Justin Baron with ZiG
Hear the words Amish Country and youd be hard-pressed not to think of butter churns, windmills and a conspicuous lack of places to plug in your iPhone. So, it might be hard to believe that Justin Baron, a prodigious singer/songwriter and New York Citys best-kept secret, grew up in Lancaster, PA the widely reputed home of the horse and buggy. Now, Baron is quickly becoming one of the music industrys rising stars with his infectious brand of explosive, bluesy pop. In 2013 a breakout year for Baron he co-wrote with Kanye West and John Legend, leading to Legends Made to Love, a single off the certified gold and Grammy-nominated album Love In The Future." Though Baron feels most at home on stage, captivating fans with both his mastery of the piano and his undeniably magnetic vocals. In just a few short years, Baron has gone from playing in small coffee houses to performing on some of the biggest stages in the world, including the IZOD Arena alongside Ariana Grande, Jennifer Lopez and Calvin Harris and Jones Beach Amphitheatre with Jason Derulo, Justin Bieber and The Weeknd.Influenced by everyone from The Beatles and The Roots to T. Rex and Elliott Smith, Barons eclectic musical taste shows in his ability to seamlessly blend genres into one intoxicating sound. Theres this moment when youre making something, whether its a song or just a melody, where this switch flips on all the sudden, shares Baron. Its like a flash of adrenaline and its helplessly addicting. It makes you dance around the room like a complete idiot. Getting a chance to bring that same feeling to everyone is the reason I make music.

Mar-31-17 07:00 PM Arc & Stones with Tyler Boone, Laura Jean Anderson
Dan Pellarin is the lead vocalist and guitarist who met drummer, Joey Doino, by chance in 2012 when Joey responded to a Craig's List post. Dan Berry, from Danbury, CT, met Doino in college and plays lead guitar. With the release of three EPs and playing countless shows all around the United States, including a year long tour with the legendary rock band KANSAS, Arc & Stones has seen and done what many bands never get to experience, let alone in their first three years. Each experience on the road for them has been both eye-opening and motivating, regardless of if it were playing in front of 15,000 as a supporting act or 15 loyalists at the local club. It lends a hand to their vision of the future, while humbling them into understanding what they believe in also takes time, persistence, and an almost insane drive to expand their sonic reach. Arc & Stones represents what was, what will be, and what is still alive in todays ever changing world of music.
Mar-31-17 10:30 PM French Horn Rebellion with Violet Sands
Love Is Dangerous in the big, bad city where late nights always bring out swingers on party patrol, hipster suits in dark alleys, beat-boxers at street corners and Poster Girls with Broken Hearts. It's Friday Night, baby and French Horn Rebellion's dance card is Void and Fancy Free.FHR is Robert and David Perlick-Molinari, two Brooklyn-based brothers born and bred in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In 2007, while hanging on a heartstring and daydreaming of Beaches and Friends, Robert had been playing French horn in the Chicago Civic Orchestra, got restless and decided to turn all attention to making dance music. After informing his conductor that Mahler isn't fun anymore, Robert asked bassoon-toting older brother, David, to share this epiphany of self-emancipation. Our sordid tale of French Horn Rebellion's mission to deliver NextJackSwing to The Body Electric begins here.Explains Robert, "We were trying to think of a way to engage kids who play in orchestra or band, and say, 'Hey. You guys can have fun too and this is how you do it.' That's when the wheels started turning - we could make music the way we want to, and it's OK."David offers, "We realized that we had the power to create something of our own. The rebellion was about accepting wholeheartedly the uniqueness of who we are and using that as a driving force. We had to rebel against the status quo and focus on what drove us internally."These self-proclaimed band geeks gone wild (BGGW) are often Up All Night crafting witty, hook-laden grooves, making reverent noise or Dancing Out on tour with a program of disco-etched lights, hi-octane special guests and a keg full of party-starter anthems. It's the French Horn Rebellion creed. "Could we really be having This Moment?" The answer is an explosive and resounding "Hell, Yeah!" FHR effortlessly weave between the seams of buzzy indie dance, electro, funk and psychedelia through to visceral new wave, rock and ambitious pop. David and Robert's sly productions, smart songs and giddy live shows manage to infuse their devoted disciples with a compulsive and joyous energy.As FHR's resident pied piper, Robert concedes this bit of affable insight, "I play French horn really, really loud. That's the number one thing - live and loud! We're running around and ripping off Jimi Hendrix solos on French horn. It's the equivalent of a pizza party in band class with Teddy Riley on the jukebox."David's practical wisdom believes "Our rebellion is about getting the true, everyday meaning of being alive and forcing the bull-s**t out!"French Horn Rebellion fan favorites like "Girls," "Caaalifornia," "Last Summer," "Johnny Smash," "Swing Into It" or the band's inspired cover of The Human League's perennial classic, "Don't You Want Me" continue to cement their NextJackSwing global takeover aspirations in the studio and on the road."Next Jack Swing is a genre we've created from the 'New Jack Swing' or 'Swing Beat' tradition of the late 80's and early 90s, but using today's technology to make the beats heavier, with funkier bass lines, and of course, putting in our own flair..." begins Robert with a knowing, mischievous tone. David finishes the missive, "...It's New Jack's kid brother seasoned by sweaty, basement dance-rages of eternal groove. It exposes everything we love about dance music!"FHR traveled 5 continents from Seoul to Caaalifornia in search of the best collaborators and fellow champions of the swing. The group have been fortunate enough to work, play, perform and collaborate with some of the best and most influential artists around, such as MGMT, Of Montreal, Ghost Beach, Cut Copy, Yelle, Savoir Adore, Hot Chip, St. Lucia, Jody Watley, The Drums, Two Door Cinema Club, HAERTS, The Knocks, SebastiAn, Autograf, Viceroy, OMD, The Knocks, MNDR, Ladyhawke and Database. Fueled by the group's bounty of wily beats and superbass, The Perlick-Molinari brothers are also very involved with incorporating inspired art, film and visuals to aid and interpret their sonic assault. FHR sleeve, tour poster, cover art and video clips have featured the work of Flekz, Skip Dolphin Hursh, Ronnie Heart, Michael Komar, Jose-Maria Norton, Kristen Winter, Dress Code, Harry Fellowes, Ally Lindsay, Meredith Dittmar and the guys themselves.Over the years, French Horn Rebellion's emotive pop singles, illustrious dance e.p.'s, well-tailored remixes and an acclaimed album debut, "The Infinite Music of French Horn Rebellion" have received high praise, acclaim and obsession by such media hubs as: The Huffington Post, Billboard, BBC Radio 1, Entertainment Weekly, Jay Z's Life & Times, Interview Magazine, Spotify, Rolling Stone, VIBE, The Guardian, Bust, Mashable, Thissongissick, NY Daily News, VEVO, Q Magazine and Time Out. Additionally, FHR have had 10 self-released singles and mixes storm the top of the influential Hype Machine chart. With their new record label, Ensemble Records enjoying a glorious bow this Summer introducing Slaptop's smash "Sunrise" (in conjunction with +1 Records) and a busy Williamsburg-based production compound and studio, YouTooCanWoo, churning out the hits, The Perlick-Molinari brothers of French Horn Rebellion are living their D.I.Y. manifesto to the fullest, noting the best is yet to come. It's clear that the group's engaging performer, A&R chief and French Horn-toting label honcho, Robert - partnered with David, the introspective studio geek, world domination enthusiast and production perfectionist, are gearing up for an international rebel party coup. FHR know You're All Right and want to assist with a bit of exclusive party intel.David knowingly states, "A way the world can feel worthwhile is for its individuals to lead the charge. We are all worth the time and energy. This dance party is where we celebrate!" Robert breaks it down even further, "I equate orchestra players with middle-class workers. You play the music on the page, listen to the conductor and go home. And I think orchestra players aren't appreciated, much like today's working man. That's why it's a rebellion: working guys, rebel!"
