Electric Love Machine
Electric Love Machine
Electric Love Machine (ELM) is best described as an outer space adventure through sound, infused with doses of electronic funk, traditional Americana and improvisational jazz, and whose foundation is built on a sense of community. Their first full-length album, XenofoneX, touches upon the aural sense, and travels through one’s heart, makes a stop in the brain, all while travelling across the cosmic plane.

ELM is part of a dedicated and diverse network of Live performance artists, acrobats, painters, graphic artists, musicians, fashion designers, and music lovers from in and around the Baltimore area who support each other and often perform together to make each show a profoundly unique experience.

Flying through their (fair-priced) interstellar journey, their tribe supports ELM not just in their hometown of Baltimore, MD, but also throughout the band’s multiple engagements spanning the Northeast, and future markets in the Southeast, Midwest, West, the Moon, and potentially our neighboring Andromeda Galaxy (dependent on contract negotiations).

In addition to the many hallowed halls ELM has had the extreme pleasure of playing, they have gratefully performed with jam monsters EOTO, Papadosio, Dopapod, TAUK, Turkuaz, Electron, and PPPP, and have played multiple sets at such fine festivals as All Good Music Festival, The Mad Tea Party, Moonrise, Camp Barefoot, The Werk Out, Domefest, and Lunar Bay.
Cousin Earth
Cousin Earth
Cousin Earth (Formerly Known as Ukulelien) is a Brooklyn-based Progressive Ukulele Rock band. With both an original repertoire and a vast array of covers, Cousin Earth brings both a sense of playfulness and technical ability to the music they play. From shredding ukulele solos and 4–part vocal breakdowns to interweaving themed medleys, the band is sure to catch the attention of any music lover. Presenting a multitude of styles including Rock, Fusion, Ragtime, Funk, Bluegrass, Hip Hop, and even Electronica, no musical style is off-limits for this up-and-coming live-act.

CE was formed in 2013 by Joey Calfa (Ukulele/Guitar/Vocals) and Nate Searing (Drums). The two met while playing in a Frank Zappa cover band in college called the Mothers of Intention. Before founding Ukulelien (Cousin Earth), Calfa and Searing went on to play together again in the progressive jam band Mercury Landing. It was in this group that they met the rest of CE: Tara Lawton (Vocals, Melodica, Keys, Percussion), Corey J. Feldman (Ukulele Bass, Bass, Vocals) and Terry Brennan (Vocals, Kazoo, Percussion).

In the short time CE has been a band, they've built an impressive internet presence and played shows throughout the Northeast United States. From Maine to Pennsylvania, the band has played with notable acts including Melvin Seals and the Jerry Garcia Band, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, Future Folk, Andy Frasco and the U.N., Aqueous, Big Something, The Reformed Whores, Teddy Midnight, and McLovins. Other notable accolades for the band include a self-booked charity tour affiliated with the American Cancer Society’s “Relay for Life,” musical collaborations with the “Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fusion” band Consider the Source, and winning a slot at the Rock N Roll Resort Festival through a “Battle-of-the-Bands” competition.

On November 20th 2015, Cousin Earth released a self-titled debut EP. The release embodies the intricate musicality, odd-ball instrumentation, and tight vocal harmonies that have become a staple of their live act. While the band is known for making big sounds with tiny instruments, their EP also showcases several songs reminiscent of Mercury Landing (featuring guitars, horns, etc.) The genre-bending album takes listeners through the many sides of Cousin Earth. As far as rock bands go, Cousin Earth may not be as loud or as physically large, but they will definitely surprise audiences by finding uncharted musical territory with their tiny instruments, CE can't help but make you smile and sing along.
Bushicks
The brainchild of Jonny Bushick, a band out of the Bushwick neighborhood in Brooklyn. They hang their hat on songwriting and Rock n Roll; blending something traditional with something out of the ordinary.
