@[353012224744425:274:Butcher Brown] Straight out of the underground, a steady rumble is building and it’s called Butcher Brown. Pulsing from the nerve center of Jellowstone Studios in Richmond VA, Butcher Brown takes careful note of the history and legacy of jazz and throws caution to the wind with wanton abandon. Garage punk jazz funk on the low end of the dial gives way to delicate and elegant compositions as the band shows off without trying. These are not just players, these are musicians. Corey Fonville (Christian Scott, Nicholas Payton) leads the way, holding down the beat like it’s his own (which it is). Andrew Randazzo’s bass style is unique - sparse and almost industrial at times, and deliberately furious at others. Keith Askey just added Kendrick Lamar to his list of credits, and there’s a reason why. Fingers of Fire. Devonne Harris AKA DJ Harrison is the fearless leader and scientist in the middle of this band - always fiddling with all of the possibilities. Cooking with no recipe.

@[249085251840228:274:Midnight Snack] Midnight Snack is the musical brainchild of brothers John and Mike Johnson. They started the project in 2009 in rural Harwinton, Connecticut, and the next year moved to Boston, MA to study at Berklee College of Music. At Berklee, the Johnson brothers started playing their songs with several of their closest friends, and these friends very quickly transformed into what is now the Midnight Snack family.
The band now consists of John Johnson on vocals and keyboards, Michael Johnson on guitar and synths, Peter Brownlee on bass, Zack Kardon on guitar, Zoe Gelinas on vocals and glockenspiel, Katie Richter on vocals and trumpet, and Jacob Burnstein on drums. Their sound is a blend of old-school psychedelic rock and funk with new-school art rock. Their goal is to spread love and positivity with addictive recordings and powerful live performances.
