The Happy Fits are Calvin Langman, Ross Monteith, and Luke Davis. With their unique substitution of a cello for a bass guitar, The Happy Fits blend folk, rock, indie, and pop to create a new, groovy sound. The band's first single "While You Fade Away" from their debut EP "Awfully Apeelin'" reached #5 on Spotify's Top 50 Viral USA Chart the first week of its release.
Summer Scouts is a five-piece power pop band based in Allentown, PA. The band infuses an eclectic mix of pop sensibilities and driving rock, with a tinge of post-rock dynamics to cast a Signature Sound that is intimately heartfelt. Summer Scouts released their first full-length in May of 2016, featuring an array of dynamically-charged tracks retaining the band's hefty sonic weight, unforgettable female/male vocal melodies, and trademark post-rock influence.
ITO is an explosive and original blend of all genres. Inspired by a space deep in uplifting lyrics driven by compassion, peace and love of the human experience.
Honeysuckle is a progressive folk act that blends older influences and traditional instrumentation with modern effects and inspiration. Comprised of Holly McGarry, Benjamin Burns, and Chris Bloniarz, the trio can frequently be found performing the Northeast.
Jackson Pines released their first full length album, "Purgatory Road" in 2016. The record mainly focuses on the duo of Joe Makoviecki on guitar/vocals and James Black on stand up and electric bass. They are recipients of multiple local awards in their home-state of New Jersey.
Former heavyweight boxing champion Larry Holmes pummeled Muhammad Ali to submission. His nephew, Pentley Holmes, merely wants to knock audiences over one song at a time. Experience the younger Holmes' haymakers as the multi-instrumentalist manages multiple ways of routing to one's inner core. Holmes sings passionately. He plays the guitar brilliantly.
