Eric Krasno Band
Eric Krasno is a guitarist, musician & producer best known for his work with his groups Soulive, Lettuce, Chapter 2 and record label Royal Family Records.
Goosepimp Orchestra is an 8 piece psychedlic latin/funk dance party. Driving elements from all over the musical spectrum into an unrelenting cosmic force, Goosepimp's live performances have garnered them a reputation for stirring crowds into a dancing frenzy. Smothered with high energy and seasoned with a carefully crafted balance of experimentation and groove, their grassroots mentality has been captivating a devout and growing fanbase, packing venues just to get their fix of the Goose.
The first footprints of Goosepimp's musical journey can be traced back to the turn of the millennium, when childhood friends Mike Cantor and Bob Greel stumbled upon a chemistry that culminated their admiration for elements of various dimensions. The two met bassist Dave Pelletier, who's bottom end backbone developed ideas into all night jam sessions. Through Dave, came his brother Adam, providing steady rhythm on guitar. After recruiting Josh Filgate on Trombone, Jon Albertelly on Trumpet, and Seth Bailin on Saxophone, the band's presence was screaming with a sharp horn section. By adding Cantor's hometown friend Joe Calabrese on the drums, a complete line-up was set in place to catapult Cantor and Greel's original chemistry into the 21st century.
In the three years that the current ensemble has been playing together, they have established their presence in and around their home of Boston, made numerous festival appearances throughout the Northeast, and maintained a steady gigging regiment up and down the East coast. Fueled by their trademark ability to morph themselves through the boundless realms of the sonic stratosphere, the development of the original concept has transcended into a sound that is danceable, funky, tight, and above all, in tune with their surrounding community.
Their debut full length album, aptly entitled The Biggest Bang, captures ten raw glimpses inside the brainwork of an entrancing spiritual experience that has been sweeping audiences off their feet. Fans of funk, world music, jazz and psychedelic rock alike are given the opportunity to experience what happens when a powerful energy triggers a collision of groove and gluteus maximus.
Hailing from New York City, Turbine has quickly gained a devoted audience who have come to expect the unexpected. Recently chosen by Relix Magazine as "Artists on the Verge," the band uses their vast catalog of songs as launching pads for improvisation. This summer they have appeared at Bonnaroo, 10,000 Lakes Festival, Telluride Bluegrass Festival, and hosted their second NYC boat cruise.
Playing the harmonica and acoustic guitar, Ryan Rightmire has rocketed this classic folk combo into the 21st century. Jeremy Hilliard, brings an explosive electric guitar style steeped in the blues and roots traditions of the south. This one-two punch of intertwining soloists, backed by Eric Johnson on drums and Justin Kimmel on bass, sound like nothing you've heard before. Turbine's unique talent for turning the assumed on its head has attracted the attention of many genre favorites and has landed the boys sit-ins with the Del McCoury Band, Benevento-Russo Duo, moe., and many others!
