Eminence Ensemble
Eminence Ensemble
While Eminence Ensemble’s musicianship impresses most, it’s their ability to cross and bend genres so fluidly, meticulously and with purpose that sends fans on a unique journey. The 6-piece band takes you down the rabbit hole with soulful vocals and playful lyrics to reach new levels of transcendence. EE waits for no one and their tenacity comes in full force. Despite attempts at categorizing Eminence Ensemble, the band has interest and heart for every genre and has devoted its craft to making you feel as if you too are a part of the journey. When you attend an Eminence show, you’ll hear influences from 80's hard rock, 70's soul and funk and 00's R&B. Their live shows are hard to pinpoint, as streamlined as they are unique, light-hearted as they are dark, but never boring. The Denver-based sextet has performed at Electric Forest, Summer Camp Music Festival, Resonance Music and Arts Festival, Euphoria Music Festival, The Werk Out, ARISE Music Festival, SONIC BLOOM, Friendly Gathering, and many more. Eminence Ensemble is more than just a rock band; they’re a rock band that jams with every bit of heart and soul.
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.
Jam the Radar
Jam the Radar (JtR) is a Brooklyn-based psychedelic rock band. Their music showcases intricate musical compositions, upbeat catchy songs, high-energy improvisation, and experimental psychedelic soundscapes

JtR formed in the summer of 2018 and made their debut at Bowery Electric in New York City, delivering a set of mostly original material. The band is comprised of Thomas Tompkins (guitar/vocals), Emerson Williams (drums/vocals), Jason Goldstein (bass/vocals), & Jim Cooney (guitar/vocals). After a well-received debut show, the fledgling ensemble decided to keep the project going. With the creative juices flowing, JtR has arranged and debuted a diverse array of new music in less than 6 months, and have recently entered the studio to begin tracking their full length debut album.

JtR has performed at Arlene’s Grocery, BRYAC in Black Rock CT, Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory, and hosted a late night Phish after-party at Bitter End NYC with LoveDeep. 2019 looks bright for the young band as it aims to release its debut album, play more shows in and outside of New York City, continue improving its live show, and make its festival debut.

The band members have individually and / or collectively had the pleasure of sharing the stage with Mike Gordon, Joe Russo, Eminence Ensemble, Aqueous, Capital Zen, Runaway Gin, Natalie Cressman, Todd Stoops, Formula-5, The Mantras, Mister F, Scott Murawski, and many more talented artists.

While new to the scene, expect to be hearing much more from Jam the Radar soon!
