Big Blue Ox

Big Blue Ox is an explosive funk juggernaut from Salt Lake City, Utah. Throwing down head bangin' grooves and blistering horn lines, this band is sure to elevate the mind and move the booty. Big Blue Ox recently released their self-titled EP, featuring some of the group’s most groundbreaking work.

The band’s core members, George Simon, Mason Petersen, and Wachira Waigwa-Stone, founded the first incarnation of Big Blue Ox while attending the School of Music at the University of Utah in 2009. After a hiatus, the band reformed in 2015 with an all-star lineup, including a 3-part horn section, analog synthesizers, and world percussion. Be sure to catch Big Blue Ox at a festival or venue near you and stay tuned for full album release dropping next year.

SuperBubble is an ever-expanding funk collective from Salt Lake City, Utah. Combining fat beats, energetic grooves, cosmic jams, soulful lyrics, and dynamic solos, they turn a room into an unapologetically funky dance party. Formed in 2016, they have become a quick local favorite, and a staple of the regional festival scene. In May 2017, SuperBubble released their first self-titled EP among great reviews. S.L.U.G magazine wrote, “SuperBubble are one of the biggest surprises I have encountered this year, with one of the most solid debuts I’ve heard out of the Salt Lake scene. This album is a fleshed funk fest of jam, jive and jazz, with a couple of the strongest instrumental tracks I’ve heard for years.” In Spring of 2018, SuperBubble embarked to Europe for their first tour, performing all over the Netherlands and France, and headlining the ECU Film Festival in Paris. They are currently working on their first full-length album, which will be released later this year.
