The Breakfast is a hard-hitting jazz rock experimental quartet whose music ranges from progressive rock to sonic landscapes. Since the group's inception 11 years ago the band has played over 1000 shows throughout the country, released 6 albums and is on the verge of releasing a 7th. The Breakfast's sound and energy are founded in the psychedelic but their music features some incredibly well-crafted song structures and melodies, showing the members' gifts as highly talented musicians. Indeed, original members Tim Palmieri (guitar) and Adrian Tromantano (drums) provide the distinguishing characteristics the band has thrived on from the beginning. The two are able to reach near-telepathic communication on stage, ripping through progressive shredding licks and jams without missing a beat. This is held together by the sonic glue of longtime, though newly re-added, keyboardist Jordan Giangreco, and supported from beneath by the jazz sensibilities of bassist Chris DeAngelis.
In 2003/2004 The Breakfast accepted their first Jammy award for Best Emerging Artist at The Madison Square Garden Theater along with Phil Lesh, Dr John and other distinguished honorees. In its long career the band has performed with other music greats such as The Wailers, moe, Mike Gordon, Umphrey's McGee, Disco Biscuits, Robby Krieger (The Doors), Garaj Mahal, Soulive, Lettuce, Tea Leaf Green and Particle. Their intense touring schedule has featured appearances at such notable music festivals as 10,000 Lakes Festival (twice), moe.down, Gathering of the Vibes, Camp Bisco, and High Sierra, among others.
Rejuvenated by the recent re-addition of original member Jordan Giangreco on keys, these four virtuosos continue to turn heads with each show. Together they rage forward with renewed mission and commitment to solid performances for passionate and dedicated fans everywhere. The group celebrates the upcoming September 12th release of its highly anticipated second live album Live As Is, which chronicles The Breakfast's epic performance at The Field in Bridgeport, CT on February 28th, 2009. Breakfast is served…
Goose is a Funk-Folk band based out of Norwalk, Connecticut. Rick Mitarotonda is the guitarist-singer-songwriter whose folky, hummable melodies are supported by Peter Anspach on guitar/keys, and a deep-pocket rhythm section of Trevor Weekz on Bass, Ben Atkind on drums, and Aaron Hagele on percussion. The band’s music is both memorable and danceable; an organic and easy-to-love mix of funk and contemporary folk, with touches of reggae, jazz, blues, and rock.
The Mushroom Cloud
The Mushroom Cloud is an explosive funk-rock band from New Haven, CT with Paul Harris on guitar, keys, and vocals, Matt Cuddy on guitar, Charlie Mazur on bass, and Russ Harris on drums. Since they formed in 2011, The Cloud's been blending funk, rock, jazz, and electronica into cleverly written passages of music mixed with powerful improv jams. Their organic and original sound is constantly evolving, taking listeners on vibrant journeys in their heads and on the dance floor, and their unique energy resonates deep in the soul. With their second full length album "Air Raid" out now, things are just heating up for this bright young band!
