Juice

With seven distinct personalities, Juice distills rock, r&b and hip-hop into a signature sound with a distinct kick of electric violin, rich harmonies, honest lyrics, and festival-worthy choruses. The Boston septet—Ben Stevens [lead vocals], Michael Ricciardulli [guitar], Rami El-Abidin [bass], Christian Rose [violin, vocals], Kamau Burton [acoustic guitar, vocals], Daniel Moss [guitar], and Miles Clyatt [drums]—perfects this mix on its 2018 independent project.

Kyle Duke and the Brown Bag Boys

Since moving to New York in 2015, Duke has been hard at work spreading his own DIY brand of psychedelic, guitar-driven rock to new audiences with the help of his live band The Brown Bag Boys. After the release of his first self-produced EP Snack Time in 2016 and its follow-up Aquatic Pop in 2017, Kyle began gaining more national and international interest through indie and college blog coverage as well as radio play on college and national public radio stations. Kyle has since released a handful of singles that lean more into the heaver aesthetic of the punk and metal acts that he grew up worshipping, and continued to expand his cult following regionally and nationally with his high-energy, whimsical live set, captured on the EP Ohio Gets Wet, released June 20, 2018 on Bandcamp.

Not many cover or tribute bands out there ever attempt to engage in the raw talent, mystic...ism, and magic that is TOOL. But if you talk to four brave souls from New York City (Angelo Rivera- Vocals; Sean Murray- Bass; Donald Pusateri- Drums; Keith Williams- Guitar). Their love and passion for this music led them to form SCHISM. New York City's premier TOOL tribute band, the world's first tribute to TOOL.

"We started this back in 2001, after seeing a TOOL show at Madison Square Garden. We simply loved the music and wanted to share it live with other TOOL minded fans" says SCHISM guitarist Keith Williams. "We've been a national touring act for over 10 years now. This isn't something you tap your foot to, this is more of an interactive experience for listener. These songs are compositional masterpieces, which will be studied for years to come".

Doors 8pm/Music 9pm/$10 at the door

Goodnight Blue Moon
Blending rich vocal harmonies with lush orchestrations, Goodnight Blue Moon has created a sound that is steeped in tradition, yet entirely current. GNBM is known for their energetic, honest, and dynamic live performances, offering a refreshing take on Americana roots music.

Brian Dolzani Trio
The southern historic stories of The Band, the longing lonesome voice of Neil Young, the driving rock of Fleetwood Mac. These might be the references that come to mind upon hearing Brian Dolzani’s ninth record, 2018’s ‘Horse’. Brian is an American troubadour in the truest sense of the term - traveling the country singing his deeply personal blues, hopes, and stories. No Depression magazine calls Brian’s music ‘remarkably affecting’ and Lonesome Noise blog says his music is ‘medicine for the soul’.

NYC's Tragedy: A Metal Tribute to the Bee Gees & Beyond, is an over-the-top bombast of Disco, Metal, Glitter and Magic - the #1 Party Band.

METAL RULES:"The greatest heavy-metal-meets-disco party you could possibly wish for."LOUDWIRE:"One of the hottest videos on the internet...this isnt just fun and catchy it rules!"VH1:"Crazy outfits, wild hair, guitars, and locker room parties, the only question left to ask is, why hasnt this idea been adapted into a full length movie yet? We want more!"

Born out of the impenetrable divide of Disco and M...etal, these six fearsome brothers fearlessly obliterated the truce line that had been set in the great Disco/Metal Peace accord of 1977 when theyseamlessly blended the two genres with the debut album, We Rock Sweet Balls and Can Do No Wrong, which was a collection of Bee Gees songs redone in a heavy metal treatment reminiscent ofIron Maiden, Guns N Roses and Aerosmith. Since then, they have crisscrossed the globe with their spectacular live shows and having stormed across the USA, UK, France, Holland, Germany andSwitzerland. Subsequent albums, Humbled By Our Greatness, Death To False Disco-Metal, The Solo Albums and The Joy of Sex have seen them spread their glittered wings to take on non Bee Gees classics from the disco era, soft rock anthems and party jams.

In 2015, Tragedy broke the internet with a viral video featuring their take on You're the One That I Want from the Grease soundtrack, then again in 2017 with Stayin' Alive, co-starring comedianDave Hill.If you're allergic to smiling be afraid... be very afraid. Tragedy sweats glitter and cums confetti!Tragedy has headlined festival stages at Bloodstock (UK), Rebellion (UK), Musikfest (US), CMJ (US), SXSW (US), Summer Breeze (DE), Glastonbudget (UK), Legends of Rock (UK), Motocultor (FR),Foud'rock (FR) and Hammerfest (UK).

The Funky Dawgz Brass Band are one of the premier touring acts on the live music scene today. Emerging from Connecticut, these young men have engulfed the spiri...t and traditions of New Orleans as well as earned the respect from local musicians who grew up and reside in the city. It is impossible not to enjoy yourself during a show as they play a contagious upbeat mix of traditional New Orleans R&B, original music, hip hop, funk, and today’s top hits with a brass twist.

They have toured nationally from coast to coast, as well as internationally and have been featured in all corners of the live music scene. From playing sold out shows at Madison Square Garden as the horn section for Dispatch, to Camp Bisco, to closing out The Peach Music Festival, their performances flow seamlessly from EDM festivals to jam band festivals to traditional New Orleans second line parades. They were also recently featured multiple times on national televised programming on ESPN (house band for March Madness Tournament Challenge, opening segment of First Take).

There is a reason they were featured as one of Live For Live Music's Brass Bands You Need To Know. The Funky Dawgz are dropping jaws. These high energy horns have been featured on bills with Dispatch, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, We The Kings, Snarky Puppy, The Soul Rebels, Lettuce, The Motet, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Rebirth Brass Band, Twiddle, Turkuaz, Kung Fu, Bernard Purdie, Sister Sparrow & The Dirty Birds, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, and the list continues.

When the band is not playing shows they are giving back to the community. The Funky Dawgz aim to connect, engage, inspire and rejuvenate music education in inner city schools across the country. The band frequently gives performances and master classes to young musicians in elementary, middle, and high schools across the region.

Jamie McLean is a triple threat. As a guitarist for New Orleans royalty Aaron Neville and Dirty Dozen Brass Band he's toured the globe playing fiery guitar everywhere from Madison Square Garden to Japan’s Fuji Rock. His blue eyed southern soul vocals ooze raw emotion and his top line songwriting chops tie everything together. With hundreds of original compositions to his name McLean creates a musical gumbo that incorporates New Orleans ...soul, Delta blues, middle America roots and New York City swagger.

Jamie McLean Band is set to release their long awaited new album One and Only. Recorded at the famed Sound Emporium studios in Nashville One and Only captures the band's strongest songwriting to date. The album was produced by Ken Coomer of Wilco and features special guests Sam Bush and Jeff Coffin of Dave Matthews Band. Live staples "Virginia" and "One and Only" finally get a beautiful studio performance and Jamie McLean Band will tour behind their new album throughout the US and Canada this year!

Baby Dynamite

Our music has been most colorfully described as 'shit-stompin’-thumpin'-funkin' Rock n’ Roll covered in sweet Soul that’s reminiscent of the 70’s. That’s pretty damn inspiring. We love what we’re doing and are grateful to be creating this vibe together, so to feel that realness and enthusiasm coming back is a gift and truly humbling.

Kofi Baker's Cream Experience

The legendary band Cream (featuring Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce), is widely regarded by many as the forefather of hard rock, and were undeniably the first rock “supergroup” of the 1960’s. 50 years later, and led by Ginger Baker’s son, Kofi Baker’s newest project is a celebration of Creams’ genre-blurring virtuosity that mixes psychedelic rock, blues, the avant-garde and rock.

Kofi was first inspired to form his own Cream band after seeing the Cream reunion in 2005. He wanted t...o continue where Cream, and his father, had left off. Kofi’s band is the ultimate Cream tribute: combining Cream’s innovative and experimental style with virtuoso talent. The dynamic three-piece effectively capture Cream’s mood and energy, adding their own distinctive styles.

Nicole Atkins w/s/g Indianola

The Acoustic is very excited to have Nicole Atkins in Bridgeport. Nicole latest release "Goodnight Rhonda Lee" is one of the best records of 2017 so don't miss a chance to hear her stuff live!!

Indianola will be supporting this show and getting things started.

Doors 7:30pm/Music 8:30pm/21+/$15  https://bpt.me/3346344

Nicole Atkins

To borrow a phrase from heavens new poet laureate, Leonard Cohen, Nicole Atkins was born with the gift of a golden voice. But somewhere along the way she misplaced it. Goodnight Rhonda Lee is the story of Nicole finding her voice, and how, in doing so, she went a little crazy.

Great Art is a journey and Nicole Atkins traveled quite a distance to bring us Goodnight Rhonda Lee. As Nicole explains it, This record came to me at a time of deep transition. Some days were good, some not so good. What I did gain, though, from starting to make some changes and going inward, and putting it out on the table, was a joy in what I do again. Joy in the process and a newfound confidence that I dont think Ive ever had until now. The album title, Goodnight Rhonda Lee, also came from those feelings. Rhonda Lee was kind of my alias for bad behavior, and it was time to put that persona to bed.

Indianola

Owen Beverly is INDIANOLA, the culmination of this rare upbringing and a career of performing and writing music all over the world in a variety of endeavors. With a multi-year stopover in Charleston, South Carolina behind him, Beverly moved to New York City and spent years as a touring member of Danish indie-pop act, Oh Land. After six years living in Brooklyn, Owen found himself called back to the South and his roots. The love of the land, the old stories of love and heartbreak, the fierce tenacity of life in the midst of hardship, sorrow, and joy break out in INDIANOLAS music. The debut INDIANOLA record, produced by Michael Trent (Shovels & Rope) and recorded within the swampy confines of Johns Island, SC is an aggressive stomp through the southern gothic: part old-school rock n roll, part singer-songwriter. Not unlike the Mississippi delta itself, known for its mythic crossroads, INDIANOLA finds itself at the intersection of heritage and innovation, with a firm and enduring grasp on the traditions from which it was born.
