Turkuaz is a 9-piece “Powerfunk” outfit from Brooklyn, NY, whose modern take on the classic funk sound has established them as leaders in the funk revolution that’s currently taking place in the genre. Blending elements of Pop, R&B, and Soul with their distinct aggressive funk core, Turkuaz sounds like the musical love child of Sly & the Family Stone and Talking Heads.
With the release of their album Digitonium, Turkuaz’s sound is more accessible than ever and poised to break out to a more mainstream audience. With a playful feel that evokes the best of 80s dance music, Turkuaz’s tightly arranged songs are built on thick grooves, driven by powerhouse rhythm and horn sections, as well as four distinct vocalists.
“I Will Not Be Afraid” the official debut record on Little Hi! Records/Thirty Tigers out August 19!
Rough Francis is a rock-n-roll band from Burlington (VT) formed by three brothers and 2 of their close friends. The young Hackneys originally started the group as a tribute to their father and uncle’s 1970’s proto-punk band Death. After a few tribute shows, the group began to write and record their own music. The loud screams and maximum volume of Rough Francis still echoes Death—but they also manage to crystalize a unique sound of their own, channeling live energy from 60’s garage rock, Motown and 80’s Hardcore.
A 70s disco-funk band stuck in the present. Time traveled in an elevator. Dance music to get your sexy juices flowing. Definitely NOT the band Madaila.
Rooted in the rowdy spirit of rock & roll, Wild Adriatic has built an international audience on a combination of groove, grit, and guitar-heavy swagger.
With the power trio’s newest album, Feel, bandmates Travis Gray, Rich Derbyshire, and Mateo Vosganian update the sound of their influences — from Seventies rock to Motown to soul — for a contemporary audience, taking influence from the past but never losing sight of the present. They aren’t revivalists; they’re modern men, carrying the torch of melodic, riff-ready, high-energy rock into new territory.
Swale started in 2002 as part of the house band for a burlesque revue in Burlington, Vermont. For the most part, Amanda plays the keys, Jeremy plays the drums, Eric plays the guitars, Tyler plays the bass, and all four of them sing the songs.
Harsh Armadillo is a 9-piece steamroller out of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. We combine funk, jazz, and hip-hop roots to make original music that inspires minds and dance moves.
Brian Nagle, aka DJ Disco Phantom, has been lighting up dance floors in Vermont for eight years. His sets are beyond catchy and accessible and his track record is proof enough that he is the type of DJ that surgically implants a permagrin on his audience. Every performance guarantees flawless mixing, great track selection and making people dance.
Disco Phantom is not your ordinary deejay. He can rock a club or an art gallery, a diy venue or a private party. He has experience playing shows with music of every genre including electronic, rock, punk, hip-hop, folk, and noise.
