Pink Talking Fish
Pink Talking Fish
Pink Talking Fish is a Hybrid Tribute Fusion Act that takes the music from three of the world's most beloved bands and creates a special treat for fans of the music.
Pink Floyd, The Talking Heads and Phish are all more than just bands... they are Phenomenons. Their creations have artistically inspired people and their mindblowing live performances have brought people together to form a special sense of community around the love for their favorite band.

Although the music from each act is different, Pink Talking Fish has discovered that fusing the material together creates an amazing story. The epic emotion of Pink Floyd.... The funky, danceable layerings of The Talking Heads.... The multitude of styles, unique compositional structures and pure fun of Phish.... to merge these three into one gives music lovers a special experience.

Pink Talking Fish features Eric Gould, founding bassist of Particle, and a revolving cast of established players in the national music scene. This is a band created by musicians who love the music of these acts. It's purpose is to heighten people's passion for this music by creating something fresh and exciting for fans.

Discovering connections is part of the fun: Pink Floyd's "On The Run" seamlessly fitting in the middle of the composition of Phish's "You Enjoy Myself". Perfectly placing Phish's "Sand" into the groove of The Talking Head's "Slippery People". Segued collections from all three acts such as Run Like Hell > Making Flippy Floppy > Piper > Run Like Hell or Mike's Song > Have A Cigar > Once In A Lifetime > Weekapaug Groove. These ideas are the spirit behind Pink Talking Fish.

The story is ever evolving. The experience is always exciting. Come join Pink Talking Fish for the ultimate fusion tribute and celebrate the love of this music in unique fashion.
Brass Against The Machine
Brass Against The Machine
Remember when Rage Against the Machine released the “Sleep Now in the Fire” music video in 2000 that predicted Trump as president? Turns out, Rage Against the Machine’s music is more relevant now than ever. That’s why we’ve formed Brass Against the Machine, a NYC-based brass band covering rage and other protest music—because we need this music now more than ever before.

Brass Against the Machine features 9 band members: Andrew Gutauskas (Bari Sax/Arranger), Brad Hammonds (Guitar/Arranger), Darius Christian (Vocals/Trombone), Sophia Urista (Vocals), Mariel Bildsten (Trombone), Wayne Tucker (Trumpet), Oskar Stenmark (Trumpet), Steven Duffy (Sousaphone) and Nathan Bell (Drums)—some of NYC’s top musicians. They’ve come together to form a unique brass band that combines rock and edgy hip-hop to create music that is both powerful and empowering.

Founded by Brad Hammonds, the band covers Rage Against the Machine, Living Colour, Gil Scott Heron, Janes Addiction, A Tribe Called Quest, and Led Zeppelin, amongst others. For their latest video they decided to mash Beyoncé’s Freedom with RATM’s Freedom.

In a politically challenging era, it’s our time to stand up against the machine. Brass Against the Machine’s first and foremost goal is to make exceptional music. Yet we would be remiss to not also note the unfortunately exceptional times we live in. We want our music to not just sound inspiring; we want our music to resonate with people’s emotions and encourage action. We’re producing exceptional music with a political edge.

We are angry, we are inspired, we are ready for change—and we hope our music amplifies this energy in everyone who listens.
