Great Big House
Great Big House was started in late 2001/early 2002 by friends in and around the Music Department at Millersville University. Starting out playing places on campus, the band slowly gained a following playing jam and classic rock covers along with originals. Branching out from Lancaster, the band now plays regularly from Central PA east to Philadelphia and south into Maryland. While the line up has changed many times since the beginning, the band has always kept a reputation for packed audiences and fun performances.
The Real Feel
Hailing from the City of Brotherly Love, The Real Feel is the next dynamic beast from the East, assembling an impressive lineup of four lifelong musicians and friends to generate an amazing sound which resonates from coast to coast. While dominating their local performance markets in Philadelphia and New York, the band quickly released their debut record in February 2010, Feel This…, which rapidly furthered the stir amongst fans around the area by establishing their prowess with effectively fusing rock, funk, soul, and reggae.
Comprised of a core of high school or college friends and long term musical fanatics, The Real Feel has soared by leaps and bounds since their inception in January 2009. Lead singer, songwriter, guitarist, and keyboard player Jared Loss brings his considerable touring experience with previous projects to the table, and also runs his own lesson and recording studio outside Philadelphia. Lead guitarist Will Maher and bassist Eddie Boate have performed with Loss since high school, adding to the group's gelled chemistry, along with their trademark electrifying solos and grooving bass lines. Rounding out The Real Feel lineup is Tom Cladek, who provides a concrete solid thumping rhythm on the drums, which solidifies him as the crucial heartbeat of the group.
In their local scene, known as one of the more widespread and enthusiastic music markets in the Northeast, The Real Feel is spreading like wildfire across Philadelphia while racking up numerous performances at popular venues around the city. The Kimmel Center, World Café Live, Penn's Landing, The Trocadero Theatre, and Love Park are just a few spots this four piece funky rock fusion unit has hit, as well as venues throughout New York City and New Jersey.
Their tireless work ethic continues to prevail, as The Real Feel is consistently writing new material while preparing for recording and releasing a new album in the coming year. New bookings are also underway, with the band scheduling upcoming shows scattered throughout the Northeast. There's always something fresh and exciting on the horizon, as this is one band sure to keep fans hungry for more while delivering consecutive bursts of inspired, funky rock.
