BAND INFO:

The Sun Parade - http://thesunparade.com/

Chris Marlon Jennings and Jefferson Lewis are two roving Northern gents who blaze their guitars and sing lusty pop songs of their own brand. At times incanting psychedelia, Nirvana, and disco, they find their roots in bluegrass and the magic of The Beatles. Jacob Rosazza and Noam Schatz are the heavy rhythm backbone that makes “folk/rock” really rock. Based in Northampton MA since 2011, The Sun Parade has been steadily creating a buzz and has many loyal fans across the country. They are in the midst of creating a new “power-pack” EP for release in early 2014 and will be touring in March for their 3rd SXSW.

Who'da Funk It? - http://whodafunkit.bandcamp.com/

Whether you want to define their music as arty experimental, funk, alternative rock, ska, klezmer, hip hop, blues, afrobeat, bossa nova, latin, punk, or any other existing genre, one thing can be promised: Who’da Funk It will make you dance. This young all-female group of five goes far beyond their appearance with daring twangs and bangs, belted lyrics, and foot-stomping charisma. They will get couch potatoes to crowd surf and coyotes to howl at the moon. They might even make you smile.
