Boston-born, New England based quartet Strange Machines have been steadily making a name for themselves in the East Coast jam scene. What started as a band focused on rock and reggae has slowly melded into a true melting pot of musical fusion, with sounds catering to heavy rock, funk, livetronica and a multitude of other genre’s, all while stringing them together seamlessly to create a fluid and captivating live performance. Their original songs are nuanced by creative composition, practiced precision, and a looseness that allows them to truly explore the music they create.
They have shared the stage with national-touring acts such as Dopapod, Twiddle, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Turkuaz, Kung Fu, TAUK, Deep Banana Blackout, John Brown's Body, and more. Strange Machines have carved out their own niche in the east coast music scene and show no signs of slowing down.
Strange Machines are set to release a new album Fall of 2017. Founding member Mike MacDonald and long time keyboardist Christian Perron, with the additions of Craig Holland on bass and Isaac Civitello on drums, have honed in their sound and hit their stride as a four piece. "Voice of Color", the bands first full length release, is a representation of what the band has developed into, diving further into progressive experimental rock and funk more than ever before. Striving to consistently deliver a high energy and engaging live performance, the band has continued to gain momentum in the Northeast and beyond. This album aims to capture the diversity and big sound you will experience at a Strange show.
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 keyboardist Kristopher Yunker, and a deep-pocket rhythm section of Trevor Weeks on Bass, Ben Atkind on drums, and Aaron Hagele on percussion. The bands 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.
Tracked in a snowbound lakeside New Hampshire cabin, with mixing and mastering at the Factory Underground in Norwalk, CT, Goose's debut album 'Moon Cabin' was released in early 2016. Moon Cabin traverses diverse musical terrain with 3 part harmony vocals and hooks so big you can hang your hat on them; funky improvised solos and adventurous musical interludes. A performance at The Capitol Theatre in October 2016 saw the addition of Goose's most recent members, Kristopher Yunker (Alan Evans Playonbrother, On The Spot Trio, Wubakia, and Jen Durkin and The Business), and Aaron Hagele, who has shared the stage with such acts as Particle, George Porter Jr, The Werks, and many more. With a second album on the way and tour dates continuing to ramp up, the Goose is ready to get loose.
