The Last Rewind
The Last Rewind is Washington DC's Phish tribute band and the latest side project of an all-star conglomerate of DC-area musicians. Formed in summer 2015 and with dozens of shows under their belt, The Last Rewind brings high energy sets, faithfulness to Phish's compositions and virtuosity, and a unique style of improvisation to stages across the Mid-Atlantic. The members of The Last Rewind have played festivals including Lock'n and have shared bills throughout the region with Phish (actual Phish), moe., Lettuce, Electron, Kung Fu, Dopapod, Tauk and Blues Traveler.
novo is an electro soul quintet from Washington, D.C. Melding elements of jazz, R&B, electronica, and psychedelic rock, the group formed in early 2018 out of an impromptu jam session, during which the members quickly noticed that a fire had been lit. That initial session blossomed into a fully-realized sound, spearheaded by husband-and-wife songwriting duo Gena Photiadis (keys/vocals) and TJ Turqman (bass). Lead vocalist Tula Pisano weaves intricate melodies that are equal parts evocative and beautiful, complemented by guitarist/vocalist Nikhel Sus and drummer Matt Tredwell. The end result is a sound that is melodic, yet distressed. Retro, yet new. And, above all, full of light and energy.
novo's members include some of the most in-demand live and session musicians in DC, who have played with a range of artists locally, nationally, and internationally, including the Funk Ark, Staycation, Gordon Sterling & the People, and more.
In mid-2018, novo will release a series of live session performances, “the basement sessions," featuring several of the group's formative tracks.
