SOULE MONDE

Soule monde is instrumental, organ-driven funk in its purest form. Erupting from the syncopated minds of power-drummer russ lawton and organ-wizard ray paczkowski, the duo take soul-jazz back to the deep end. Forged off a sound that originated with booker t. And jimmy smith, yet highly influenced by the redeveloped grooves crafted by medeski, martin & wood and the beastie boys, soule monde is the ideal union of swagger and raw talent. Over a decade of touring together as members of the trey anastasio band has fervently cemented these two into an indestructible pocket, and bold improvisational leaps by either player are met by near-telepathic response from the other. These strut-worthy rhythms are further accentuated by a passionate longing for melodic story arcs. So while their songs will make your ass shake like a jello plate on the san andreas fault, they will also take you on a narrative journey of harmonic exploration

Eight 02 Jazz Band

We are eight 02, a post-bop contemporary jazz fusion group with a particular knack for improvisational risk-taking. Eight 02 is a collaboration between founding members of picture this and current members of critically acclaimed kilimanjaro. Our sound has been described as a mix of contemporary jazz with a decidedly fresh fusion flavor. With an emphasis on melodic architecture that is balanced by raw-spirited improvisation, lou d'antonio ( jazz spectrum 104. 7, wcns the point) said it best: “beyond category, beautiful; tremendously accessible and exciting. ” we hope you agree

THE GRIFT

Mad river glen ski mountain waitsfield, vt 05673 tbd more gigs. . . Youtube logo facebook logo itunes logo wacbiz logo band bio the grift is an independent band from burlington, vt who writes and performs an eclectic array of original music. Stylistically, they’re somewhere between an electrified guster and new order (sans the british accent) and dave matthews band: their style is pop-rock with literate lyrics and vocal harmonies, and it really grooves. These guys have serious musical and songwriting chops - bassist/vocalist peter day won a recent vermont-wide songwriter contest, and guitarist/vocalist clint bierman co-wrote “i’m on my way” for the shrek 2 soundtrack. Drummer jeff vallone (classically trained, no less, with at least one symphony under his belt) was the grift's original bass player, then turntable-ist, and now drummer. The songs spring to life when the vocal harmonies of bierman and day meet the musical muscle of a road-tested touring band. Mix a deep love for the craft of songwriting with the rock-solid rhythm section of vallone on drums and day on bass with bierman’s masterful guitar playing, and you get the strange, eclectic, dynamic brew that is grift music

FUNKWAGON

Funkwagon is a gospel infused funk band based in burlington, vt. The band was formed in 2005 by aaron burroughs. “i like to think of it as church with a smoker’s section…and a bar,” says burroughs. Funkwagon is not a typical funk band, as the name might suggest. “well for one thing its very vocal oriented, said burroughs. “we pay attention to our lyrics. ” “it’s popular, it’s pop music in a way that it’s hook oriented and bass driven but we have five and sometimes six part harmonies stacked on top of it all so it really does feel kind of like a choir. ” “everything i do kind of has that church choir feel to it. But its kind of raw, but not in a way that’s imposing and won’t be on the radio, you know what i mean?”

AFINQUE

Afinque (ah-feen-keh) is a 10-14 piece classic salsa y salsa dura band from burlington, vermont. Afinque pays tribute to the sound of nyc's palladium and fania eras. The word afinque is one of many terms used to describe the quality of rhythmic and melodic interaction in afro latin music, particularly salsa. Of these terms afinque means, locked in the groove. "afinque plays fun, energetic salsa led by a stunning, lively female vocalist (miriam bernardo) their sound is more a tribute to older styles, like salsa dura, which features fat, brass-heavy compositions characterized by multiple percussive elements and a less romanticized, down-and-dirty kind of style" amanda macchia, performer magazine
