This event is all ages
Lotus has crafted a unique musical style outside of simple genre limitations. On a given weekend the band could be the only group with guitars at an all electronic music festival and then the next night crash a traditional rock festival with their dance heavy beats, synths and samples. Equal parts instrumental post-rock and electronic dance, the band's distinguishing feature is the ability to maintain a decidedly unique musical voice and remain current while bucking passing trends.
No matter what the venue, the energetic joy and catharsis of a Lotus show is infectious. The band slowly built a devoted fan base through steady touring and the crowds have grown at an increasing pace. This grassroots growth has made the band in high demand for festivals including Bonnaroo, Outside Lands, Ultra, and Rothbury and earned the band sold out shows at the country's premier theatres and clubs.
Cosby Sweater is a new and vibrant voice in live electronic music. The versatile trio is comprised of David Embry on production and vocals, Nicholas Gerlach on Tenor Saxophone and EWI and Richard "Sleepy" Floyd on drums.
Cosby Sweater has been off to a sweltering start in 2012. The group released its first full-length album "Hey Girl Hey" in July and then later followed up that release with an EP dedicate to remixes of Christmas classics called "The Christmas Sweater Vol. 1". The band has also released countless remixes and mash-ups over the course of the last year.
One aspect where the electronic trio really shines is their live show. Cosby Sweater has made waves in its first year playing festivals and supporting acts such as Pretty Lights, Minnesota, Digital Tape Machine, Tipper and Eliot Lipp. They have shown no signs of slowing down in 2013 and will continue to perfect their genre-bending sound.
