STRANGE CHANGES

Strange Changes is... as the name implies, impossible to define. This explosive and unpredictable big band ensemble has been rapidly expanding from its home base of Boston throughout the East Coast, Midwest and beyond. Bearing influences from transcendent composers like Frank Zappa and Charles Mingus, Strange Changes has developed a proprietary blend of funk, rock, jazz, fusion, Americana, and about any other idiom you can rattle off. This is an act you don’t want to miss, balancing high-level improvisation with stunningly tight arrangements and a free-spirited approach to the great tradition of American music. Moment to moment, song to song - there’s no telling where SC is headed next.

PROFESSOR CAFFEINE and the INSECURITIES

Once upon a time (er, the year 2014) in the mythical land of the South Shore, a bunch of nerds who could play instruments got drunk together and decided to start a band. Calling on cumulative influences ranging from the 2000's emo & post-hardcore scenes to classic 70's progressive rock, the music began to take shape. A few years, two records, some covers of your favorite tunes, and thousands of beers later Professor Caffeine & the Insecurities is continuing to tear up the whatever-you-wanna-call-it scene in Boston with a signature combination of erratic progressive hardcore and post-emo singalong worthy rock and roll.

THE SHILLS

Hailing from Boston, MA, The Shills are a genre-bending rock outfit that have made a name for themselves by taking complex musical ideas, and making them feel effortlessly infectious. With a sound that can go from driving rock rhythms to lush, lofty sonic soundscapes, versatility is the band's true stock-in-trade. From Queen to Queens of the Stone Age, Yes to Radiohead, Motown to metal, punk to jazz, the band's influences are virtually innumerable. As any of their fans will tell you, the only way to get any sort of handle on what The Shills' music is all about, is to simply check it out yourself.
