Former Champions are an electro rock band based out of Richmond, Virginia. Their music showcases vocal led compositions intermixed with an array of instrumentally driven electronic pieces. A sonic blend of synthesized keys mixed with sub-bass, distorted guitar, harmonized vocals, samples, and a multitude of drums, cymbals and percussion combine to create what the band describes as “street music.”
2013 looks to be an exciting year for Former Champions as they release their second studio album, Special FX Machine, and continue hitting the road with a heavy tour schedule including appearances at several festivals across the country. FC have shared the stage with artists including Lotus, The New Deal, Conspirator, EOTO, Perpetual Groove, Papadosio, Dopapod, and many others. Keep your eyes out for Former Champions, as they keep the pedal to the metal in 2013.
Emerging from the Pennsylvania music scene, from the outskirts of the City of Brotherly Love, is the phenom band known as Flux Capacitor. Their fiery, distinct sound has catapulted the group with lightning speed into the National Music Scene.
This band of brothers consistently inspire and evoke a new and wildly addicting sound resonating with elements of rock, improvisation and electronica. They redefine musicality with positive prophetic vocals, complex guitar work, innovative keys/synths/bass stylings, with feverish syncopated drum rhythms. Performances at every show dubbed "Encounters" are filled with improvisation, musical segways, spontaneous covers, and teases creating a one of a kind experience. The brothers are clearly devoted to current affairs, the future of the world, their craft and their fans. Their intense playing feels almost effortless and is charged by a higher power. Their electric vibe transcends the stage and extends into the crowd creating a magical musical ambience of jamming on tribal proportions. Flux has adopted a freer sylistic element of music that embraces and engages their audiences.
Flux has traveled the east coast, mid-west, south-east and Canada. Headlining festivals, clubs and
a plethera of venues. Their new cd "Monolith" was recorded with Jack Endino in Seattle Washington, famed for recording with many of the great acts of the last century, Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and more.
Flux has an exploding and loyal fan base which confirms that "When your in Music–Your in Flux"
