The Funky Knuckles belong to a new generation of improvising musicians, challenging the constraints of genre, but never losing sight of the groove. This is not your typical funk band... or jam band... or jazz band. The Funky Knuckles are something different entirely. This is the improvised music of the new generation, and it is continuously being re-defined, even as it is performed.

Chicago Afrobeat Project

True to its original intent as an evolving musical experiment, Chicago Afrobeat Project now angles its afrobeat roots sideways, pushing a vocal-heavy band that drips with slippery funk and rhythmic hip-hop. After years working with Tony Allen, master drummer behind Fela Kuti and the creator of afrobeat, the group’s grasp of afrobeat is uncontested. It’s the deviation from tradition that continues to make the band’s sound contemporary and relevant.

No Mind and Six Fox Whiskey are teaming up to bring you the unofficial Road Jam after party. Two Roads brewery is a 10 minute drive away and we are keeping the party rolling right after Road Jam ends!

No Mind

With ‪infectious grooves‬, deep improvisational moments, and awe-inspiring live shows, No Mind is quickly becoming one of Connecticut’s premiere bands. The southern-CT based quintet has an ever-growing dedicated fan base that readily follows the band across the New England region. Drawing from a range of influences, No Mind’s shows are never the same twice — filled with rich exploratory jams, tight vocal harmonies, clever songwriting, meaningful lyrics, and masterful musicianship. No Mind has shared the stage with numerous highly-acclaimed artists such as Grammy-winning guitarist and producer ‪Rick Derringer‬, Hayley Jane and the Primates, West End Blend, Bella’s Bartok, Strange Machines as well as other countless regional and national acts. As the band’s reach continues to grow, fans can catch No Mind at venues such as Mohegan Sun Casino, ‪Toad’s Place‬, The Acoustic, and various festivals throughout the year.


SixFoxWhiskey

SixFoxWhiskey is a jazzy funk-rock quintet out of Boston, MA. With a songwriter feel and jam band chops, they've refined a unique sound that is reminiscent of Steely Dan, Percy Hill, and the Dave Matthews Band. The group has been performing live all over the US, bringing dynamic arrangements, catchy melodies, and improvised jams to the stage since their inception in 2016. They have opened for bands like Ripe, Kung Fu, West End Blend, and Haley Jane and the Primates, and held featured slots in major festivals. SixFox released their debut full-length album, 6FW, in September 2018.

Creamery is stoked to be heading back to Black Rock for one of our few CT shows this summer. We always have a great time here and can’t wait to show y’all the new material we’ve been working on.

To make this one extra special, we are happy to announce that the one and only Hayley Jane is opening up the night with a solo set.

Music starts at 9pm. Only $10 for a full night of music!

Creamery Station:

"In just over 4 years, with close to 400 shows under their belt, the band has evolved into a powerhouse on the scene with a unique sound the people can’t get enough of!

Within this relatively short time, the band has risen through the ranks - having done shows with national acts such as Marshall Tucker Band, Twiddle, Keller Williams, Melvin Seals & JGB, Max Creek, Zach Deputy, John Kadlecik Band, Pink Talking Fish, Midnight North, The Breakfast, Roots Of Creation, & many more.

The band is primarily focused on developing their original material - the songs have already become crowd favorites. Alongside a healthy mix of classic songs you know and love, this eclectic, multi-genre band has been garnering some serious attention lately - delivering stellar performances that you don’t want to miss!"


Hayley Jane (Solo):

“Hayley Jane’s performance is layered with raw intensity + linguistic prowess. She has a deeply emotive + highly magnetizing presence that’s generating a serious buzz in the industry.

Hayley Jane pulls inspiration from a variety of styles, including 60s/70s rock + pop, musical theater, folk, blues, soul, reggae, psychedelic, funk, bluegrass + country. Her music has been praised by a wide range of musicians, producers, music lovers + the like, for successfully combining a diverse sound with clever, over-the-top lyrics + Vaudevillian style storytelling.

Hayley's on-stage energy + theatrics draw her crowds into a vivid landscape of emotion. She reawakens her audiences to the wild parts of the soul - medicine so needed in these modern times.”

I case you forgot (or never knew) - We are the core of ...uh ...yes....the Crystal Pyramid Band from the late 70's and early 80's that played throughout the New England area. Wow, what a good time (blur) that was....and guess what? We still play the same music - nothing but the finest R&R from bands and artists like The Doobies, ZZ Top, John Cougar, Bad Company, Eric Clapton, .38 Special, etc...we'll even get you dancing when we play Jenny Jenny (867-5309) and What I Like About You - to name a few. Oh, and how about some Dave Mason????......how's that for versatile (schizophrenic).......come out and Ya Ya!, and bring your own Kazoo if you want to sit in. You never know who might show up and join us onstage including former CPB bandmates and other talented or notorious musical guests. We're just out to play some great music, have a good time, and visit with fans and friends
