Big Moon, Disable Time, Samsara

Big Moon is a hard rock/alternative band from Bridgeport, CT. Since their formation in late 2007, they have been relentlessly performing, writing, and recording music. This includes their debut EP “Not Specifically, But Basically Yeah” (3/09) and full-length album “Last Night on Earth” (3/15). With hundreds of gigs under their belt, Big Moon has performed with many local and national touring acts, and has been featured at such distinguished venues as Arlene’s Grocery (NYC), legendary Toad’s Place (CT), and the 2009 Gathering of the Vibes. Driven by passion, the quartet continues to write new material and deliver high-energy performances, pushing the envelope and breaking down the barriers of their defining genres.

Disable Time, a band based in Fairfield, Connecticut, thrives to bring original music, fresh sonic booms and sounds to the musical world that haven't been pursued before. With experimentation of many different genres, the trio has solidified their sound in the past two years. Disable Time opens the book for the listener to a time-altering journey by exploring consciousness in personalized emotional labyrinths in ways that include letting go of this man-made concept of time. With solid powerful drum grooves, emotional other-worldly bass lines, and uplifting layering guitar melodies, Disable Time offers listeners an emotionally rich slice of life.

Samsara was formed in the summer of 2012 after Pat and Andrew's first jam session. Shortly after, Nick was enlisted by Pat to play drums. The two had a history of writing music together. The group struggled at first to find their sound. Settling on a genre had become their biggest challenge, in addition to choosing a name.

It soon became clear the difficulties of finding their identity stemmed from a conscious effort to fit the mold of a singular genre. So instead of trying to write a particular kind of music, the group began writing what felt natural. Suddenly, everything clicked.
