Gang of Thieves
Gang of Thieves will make you believe in Rock n’ Roll again.

High energy and an unforgettable live performance is the hallmark of these Vermont funk rockers who bring forth a new breed of rock and roll to create a powerful sound palatable to audiences of all ages. The key to the Gang’s universal appeal is their infectious sense of fun and showmanship delivered with a message that inspires and encourages positivity, making them a popular choice from rock venues to jam festivals, college to pre-schools. Featuring an electric violin tastefully woven into solid rock grooves, the Gang blends a variety of genres into memorable tunes that beg listeners to sing or dance along.

The band’s most recent record, titled “Born to Be Loud” was released in September 2016 and immediately charted on Relix/Jambands.com’s top 30, recently moving all the way up to #4. The album received a rave review from Vermont’s premiere publication Seven Days. The Gang also released a super hero themed music video for their song ‘Work Together’ exclusively through Relix Magazine.

“(Born to be Loud is a) funk-and-roll b*tch-slap” – Seven Days

“Gang of Thieves adds a funky flair to a driving rock sound” – Relix

Backup Planet
Backup Planet is a progressive funk-rock band based out of Nashville, Tennessee. To see Backup Planet perform live is to simultaneously travel back in time and forward into the future. Their truly unique sound emanates from a place that seems familiar, yet unchartered. Elements of jazz, funk, roots, blues, electronic, and progressive rock all emerge during the course of their shows. Their sound draws from so much you’ve heard before—‘70s rock and funk, high-energy improv, a touch of pop, and a sliver of metal. But the members of Backup Planet mix and match those elements—with just a hint of modern tech to burnish a sturdy nucleus of retro-minded organ and guitar—in ways that never fail to astonish. With a fantastic repertoire of original songs, they’re able to build fluid sets interspersed with extended improvisation.

Incorporating some degree of uncertainty into live performances is innate to the improvisational, or ‘jam band,’ music scene. Audiences can sense when a group takes major risks onstage; the elements of surprise and unpredictability foster a level of joy unparalleled in other types of musical performances. Masters of this process, Ben Cooper, Gavin Donati, Blake Gallant, and Carson Brown, are doing all of the above while their rapidly growing fan base nods in approval and shouts for more.
