Boston-born quartet Strange Machines have been steadily making a name for themselves in the Northeast jam scene. What started as a band focused on reggae has slowly melded into a true melting pot of musical fusion, with sounds catering to heavy rock, funk, livetronica and a multitude of other genre’s, all while stringing them together seamlessly to create a fluid and captivating live performance. Their original songs are nuanced by creative composition, practiced precision, and a looseness that allows them to truly explore the music they create.
They have shared the stage with national-touring acts such as Dopapod, Twiddle, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Turkuaz, Kung Fu, TAUK, Deep Banana Blackout, John Brown's Body, and more. Strange Machines have carved out their own niche in the northeast music scene and show no signs of slowing down.
Down at home, funky crunchadelic, Eggy is the group that brings balance to your musical breakfast. The band presents a timeless vision of songwriting both lyrically and in composition, creating works worthy of lasting a lifetime. Michael Goodman (bass/vocals), Jake Brownstein (guitar/vocals), Dani Battat (keys/vocals) and Alex Bailey (drums/vocals) work around the clock, sharpening their craft. The result, an original and organic musical blend inspired by their musical heroes of the past and present. In a live setting, eclectic improvisations create performances that take on a life of their own. Eggy paints a full spectrum of styles and emotions, and invites you to share in the experience!...

What began as a side trip for Parliament-Funkadelic's Michael "Clip" Payne has evolved into one of the most versatile jam bands around, a Family Stone-meets-The-Dead vehicle that frees your mind -- so that your ass, of course, can follow. Some of the finest original funk this side of Sly Stone, Larry Graham, and the Godfather of Soul. The 420 Funk Mob melds that sound with some Sixties psychedelia, a bit of Sun Ra "arkestration," and even a little soft rock, performed by a revolving cast of former P-Funk members and masterful musician friends. Jam after jam, style after style, they sync up. One Collective under a frequently hypnotic groove.... See MoreSee Less

Garcia's at The Capitol Theatre Port Chester, NY FREE
This event is 21 and over
Sprocket has been bringing their special brand of improvisational rock music to stages around the Northeast since 2013. Embodying the spirit of classic rock while drawing from a modern sound palette, Sprocket continues to generate a unique party atmosphere everywhere they go. The band has been featured and reviewed on notable publications such as Jambase, Jambands, Dubera, L4LM, SensibleReason, Upstate Live, NYSMusic and TheBarnPresents.
Recently, the band has continued to build up their fanbase and presence in the live music scene. transitioning from residencies at The Bitter End and The Knitting Factory to rocking the stages at Brooklyn Bowl, Knitting Factory, Webster Hall, Houston Hall, The Bell House, and other notable NYC venues. Along with ventures to Boston, Connecticut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and even a sold-out GD50 after-party at the Hard Rock in Chicago, Sprocket is ready to play anywhere, anytime. The band has also been broadcast on FM from Hosts, and internet streams during special live in-studio performances, and they had the honor of performing an acoustic set at the Relix office in Manhattan. Last summer Sprocket won the NYS Music March Madness contest, which was a testament to their wider appeal outside the city.
The band keeps on pushing forward together as musicians and friends, who have become brothers in sound. The fun has just begun. P.S. They also have a full length album out titled "Tropical Bushwick," you should check it out. Available on Spotify, iTunes, and Download.

Come join us for a special Jerry Garcia birthday celebration featuring: David Gans and Pearly Baker’s Best (featuring Vinnie Amico of moe.). The evening will start off with a book signing by David Gans at 7:15pm, followed by a solo performance by Gans. The evening will then shift gears as Gans is joined by Pearly Baker’s Best (featuring Vinnie Amico) for a 2-set performance.
Perhaps the foremost interpreter of Grateful Dead music today and an accomplished guitarist, singer and songwriter in his own right, David Gans has now shared with us his own well-crafted and heartfelt interpretations of some of the Grateful Dead’s best songs on It’s a Hand- Me-Down, released November 27th, 2015 on his Perfectible Recordings label.
Gans approaches Grateful Dead music with a unique range and a rare degree of mastery on multiple levels: as a noted writer (his most recent volume, This Is All a Dream We Dreamed: An Oral History of the Grateful Dead [Nov 2015], co-authored with Blair Jackson, presents the definitive story of the Grateful Dead in their own words), commentator, and radio-show host he has introduced, contextualized, and exposed Grateful Dead music to generations of Deadheads and casual fans. As a musician, singer, and impresario he has brought the music to life in solo and ensemble configurations. As an interviewer and documentor, he has chronicled the Grateful Dead experience from a kaleidoscopic array of perspectives, as an insider, an outsider, and a songsmith. It’s a Hand-Me- Down sets some of the Dead tunes Gans most enjoys performing in a “solo electric” context closely modeled on his performance style, making extensive use of looping and electronics to bring the sort of shimmery elastic feel required to do this material justice.
A David Gans “solo electric” performance is likely to consist of several elements: country-blues-style fingerpicking; loop-based improvisations created live in the moment; sweetly-sung ballads, original or borrowed; Grateful Dead songs reinterpreted to suit his voice and guitar; wry observations of the music-festival subculture and the larger world; soulful and passionate political commentary; favorites from the folk-rock canon of the last 50 years. Mix and match – it’s never the same show twice, but it’s always worth a listen.
Pearly Baker’s Best is a Grateful Dead tribute with both a weekly residency and a devoted following at one of the top local venues in Syracuse, NY every Monday night. Playing the music of The Grateful Dead, The Jerry Garcia Band, The Beatles and other covers they delight their devout followers with a powerful show once a week out of the band’s current song list which tops 180 songs. The band’s strong improvisational foundation leads the way, allowing their sets to be visualized much like weaving a tapestry; each thread of verse, chorus or bridge is expertly weaved into the fabric of their sound and playing to be completely embraced by their audience. Also, careful attention is always given to ensuring that each song is treated with the necessary vocal ingredients to cause the listener to be drawn into the music at the deepest level. The band’s desire is to provide each audience member with a ‘Grateful Dead-like experience,’ allowing them to encounter the show as a translational, musical undertaking. Currently PBB can go 9 shows without repeating a song and is always adding to it’s ever expanding catalog of 200 songs which includes original songs on occasion. The band does play shows in addition to their weekly residency in Syracuse, all across New York State. The band has begun to incorporate original music into their sets and recently had the privilege of sharing their stage with David Gans; long-time archivist for the Grateful Dead, broadcaster, song writer and music journalist. After expressing a strong desire to continue to perform with them, Gans and PBB have continued to team up for a number of shows since. There is truly nothing like a Pearly Baker’s Best show.
Joining PBB for the evening will be special guest, Vinnie Amico (of moe.) on drums.

Additional Info: Matisyahu found himself on stage at the Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival with the de facto leader of improvisational rock-n-roll; Phish's front man Trey Anastasio. Many early fans of Matisyahu remember that moment clearly not because of the songs he played in front of the 80,000 person crowd, but because of his seemingly unfettered confidence (or perhaps naivete) in helping lead Trey and his band through an improvisational display of beat boxing and lyrical gymnastics during the two songs performed. It may have been unrefined, but Matisyahu's passion for full band improvisation was laid bare.11:30pm Doors12:30am Show Tickets: www.ticketweb.com/fb/7406495/cegpresents... See MoreSee Less

SHOW DETAILS Who: KRAZ & TAZ - The Eric Krasno Band w/ The Brandon Niederauer "TAZ" Band Where: The Cutting Room When: Friday, August 4th, 2017 Doors: 11:30pm doors, show at 12:00am (technically early morning 8/5) Tickets: $20 advance / $25 day of show Purchase tix here: bit.ly/2pPwoeu
The Eric Krasno Band will perform a special late night concert at The Cutting Room on Friday, August 4th, joined by the Brandon Niederauer "TAZ" Band.
Krasno needs no introduction, as he has been essentially running NYC for years, making his name as a founding member of Soulive and Lettuce while developing himself into one of the most in-demand guitar players in the city. His solo band has been on the road for some time now, delivering material from his solo album Blood From a Stone alongside a few choice Grateful Dead covers that have allowed he and his band to stretch out into the improvisational space where he shines the brightest. Kraz recently built The Daze Between Band show during Jazz Fest, and is also known for his prowess as a bandleader as the musical director for several SuperJams at Bonnaroo and the PowWow at Okeechobee. At this point, Kraz is one of the best pound-for-pound talents in the game, and we can’t wait to see what he brings to the table for this special late night performance.
Brandon “Taz” Niederauer should be no stranger, since, at this point, he has cemented himself as a rising star. Niederauer, still only 14 years old, was discovered by Butch Trucks, mentored by Col. Bruce Hampton, and has been cutting his teeth the past two years as one of the stars of the smash hit Broadway musical School of Rock. Niederauer and his band have been making the rounds as of late, hitting New York venues like American Beauty, The Iridium, The Blue Note, and a headline play at The Cutting room earlier this year....
