Relative Souls is a high energy band from Bridgeport, CT. Equal parts funk, jam, and rock music. There are two types of people that like to come see Relative Souls...those that like to get up, and those that like to get down!
Relative Souls believes that music brings everyone together. Their music is timeless and eclectic, and while drawing from many classic influences, the approach is modern and fresh. The jamming vibe of Phish, the Dead, and the Allman brothers, the funkiness of Sly, Bill Withers, and P-Funk, the rock of Led Zeppelin, Guns N’Roses, and Pink Floyd, the vocal soulfulness of Joe Cocker and Marvin Gaye, with some of the electro ambient creations of Radiohead and the Disco Biscuits. A gumbo of great musical influences, all played in a fresh, dynamic context. The bottom line is people are either dancing or going nuts.
Symphonic Bodega is an experimental art rock band formed in 2012 and led by Bridgeport guitarist/composer Christopher Cavaliere. Expanding upon a neighborhood of sounds that harmonize rock, surf, funk, free jazz, classical and film score, Symphonic Bodega is a collective multi-genre group. They have supported national touring acts such as psychedelic soul band The Stepkids and math rock trio Perhaps. Cavaliere composed the score to Bridgeport Theatre Company’s original rock musical “Suburban Decay” which featured Symphonic Bodega as pit ensemble.
