Rising out of the powerpop ashes of NYC’s Lower East Side and New London, CT, come The Pneumatics. Formed in 2022, they bring the hooks and harmonies with just enough garage to keep your cynicism alive. Shake some action with The Pneumatics as they tear their way through a set of original bubblegum blasters. Featuring Dante Piacenza, Ron Lewis, Mike Pace and Chris Listorti. Not to be missed, or easily forgotten.
100 Watt Suns, John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band, The Hoolios, Whitesmoke, Soul Searchers, Brother Big Eye, Green Tea, Water St. Quartet, Crows Toes, and The Collective are just a few of the bands the members of The Troublemakers were playing in when this band formed in the summer of 2016. The lineup includes the area’s most talented, in demand and seasoned veteran players.
Ronnie Lewis plays the drums and handles lead vocals. Sitting next to him is Don “DC” Culp who plays the drums as well. Together they create a devastating pocket. Together, they are always busy - and in high demand - Dan Sherer holds down the keyboard/piano duties. Bill Light handles most of the lead guitar work and backing vocals. The band is rounded out by the younger but already seasoned Josh White (rhythm/lead guitar) and Mike Palazzolo on bass.
The Troublemakers play music and have fun, that’s actually their only real rule. No egos and none of the other nonsense that, unfortunately, has become part of being a modern-working musician. It’s refreshing to see them having fun on stage. Playing music for the love of playing music.
Gray Hallberg is the founder, vocalist, & lead guitarist of Wooly Mammoth, with Jonathan "Sledge" Smith on bass, Toby Halsey on rhythm guitar, Chris Chapman on drums and Scott Parry on keys. In 2020, they released their first album, Evolutionary Rejects. They have graced venues like Captain Daniel Packer Inne, The Barn, Yellow Kittens, The Knick and have played every River Jam.
In 2018 a group of musicians got together for a once a month Dead night at the Captain Daniel Packer Inne in Mystic,CT. It turned out to be a seriously good time that translated to more shows, more fun, and Mystic Dead was born. Deep dives into all things Grateful Dead coupled by the freedom to remain true to their own creative individuality has been and will always be the mantra of all 6 members of Mystic Dead.
Mystic Dead is: Toby Kniffin - Guitar & Vocals, Ian Kelly - Guitar & Vocals,
Jay Hartley - Drums, Eric Hyland - Drums
Jordan Giangreco - Keys & Vocals, Marty Moroney - Bass & Vocals
The Subliminals are an instrumental jazz/ groove project from southeastern CT. The group is a collective of diverse musicians whose talent is truly amazing , bringing years of experience to each performance.
Party jazz is a way of describing the band’s sound, by taking on compositions from Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis, Roy Hargove, John Scolfield & many other influential artists. The Subliminals bring an uplifting feeling of joy and happiness every time the group takes the stage. They look forward to each performance with a true love of the music they create.
The Decker Bandits bring a unique blend of storytelling and songwriting mixed with elements of bluegrass, rock, jam, and jazz. Combined with sharp arrangements, catchy tunes, and great musicianship their live shows are equipped with wild improvisation that make people dance.
Originating out of the Northeast farming town of Salem, Ct. Starting off simply as a few local musicians burning off some mid-week work angst at the local open mic, quickly turned to a cohesive element. Though often categorized as a “Jam” band, Jeremiah Hazed draws from many musical styles & influences while writing powerful original music.
Playing all things roots rock reggae and in between. An eight-piece reggae band embracing groove, positive vibes & roots.
Oblivious Fools combines infectious dance grooves, face-melting ambiance, and ever soaring song climb.
