J.Wail Live Band
It is the dawn of an age of digital wizardry and in this modern era gadgets seem to surge in song, congealing in an amalgamation of buzzes, beeps and blips. The pulsing of machines and pounding of concrete and steel in symphonic collage power our world. J.WAIL Live Band rises to the call of the sonic traffic controller, poised behind a palette of electronic devices, guitar, a funky bass and live drums creating a realm of joy, funk and euphoria for all. The dance floor becomes the launch pad where J.WAIL fuses live instrumentation with dance beats propelling mind, soul and booty into the upper stratosphere of sound. In the resonance of music and technology, they meld the sounds of tomorrow with the power of now into a bumping, party anthem for modern mankind. J.WAIL’s tours have logged hundreds of club/theater dates and festivals performed on all corners of North America and international destinations. Stretching into the DJ-based dance sound with the approach of a live band J.WAIL creates “club-funk-glitch-rock” through innovative techniques using live guitar, live drums, vocals, synthesizers and live electronics A major part of the project are special collaborations and guests from local musicians to guests such as David Murphy (formerly of STS9), EOTO, Steve Molitz of Particle/Phil Lesh, Dean Ween (Ween), Chuck Morris (Lotus) and more. Expect the unexpected!

Akenda is an American electronic dance music band founded on the campus of Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA early 2013. The trio consists of lead singer/keyboardist Melissa Hayes, drummer Kaj Sorensen, and founder/guitarist Bert Cheshire. With strong female pop vocals, intricate dance oriented drumming, fierce guitar playing, and futuristic synth soundscapes Akenda draws influence from across the board to birth a distinct style explicitly their own. The group's trademark sound advanced and matured through several lineup transformations as well as heavy integration of electronic production. The band now blurs the line between modern producer/DJ's and exciting instrumentalists. The original four person roster performed shows regionally throughout the northeast US from 2013 - 2015. In summer 2015 Melissa Hayes joined the band as they embarked internationally for debut performances in Spain, France, and Japan amidst being based out of Valencia, Spain. In 2016 Akenda returned to the U.S. as a three-piece to occupy the rest of the year cooking up their self-titled debut EP and performing shows around the southeastern states. The band gained notoriety when lead singer Melissa Hayes’ voice was featured in a Nike swimsuit commercial January 2017. Akenda’s first full official release will drop early 2018. All tracks were written, produced, and engineered by the band then passed off to Grammy heavyweights Andrew Wuepper (Justin Bieber, Beyonce, Celine Dion, Katy Perry) for mixing and Sterling Sound (Bruno Mars, Babymetal, Wu-Tang Clan, D’angelo) for mastering. Currently residing in Denver, CO Akenda is amassing new fans while carving their name out as a must experience live spectacle!
