DC's Jukebox the Ghost writes a fresh breed of melodic pop tunes driven by fiery rock momentum. With quirky lyrics and inventive songwriting, fans and critics have drawn parallels with the pop sensibility of Elvis Costello, the flamboyance of Queen, the wit of They Might Be Giants, and the creative rock of The Flaming Lips.

The Guru is a four piece band from Watertown, Connecticut. They cut their teeth in small shows for handfuls of friends in the back of a main street coffee house. Soon they streamlined their psychedelic-influenced songs into songs with more focused melodies, slicker guitar parts, and dance-influenced conversations between the bass and drums. They grew comfortable playing shows after a summer of playing every show they could get booked on in New England. Along the way they developed a dedicated fan base that shows up to every show, to exchange energy, dance, and sing.

Goodman Brown is a NJ-based pop collective. Comprised of three singer-songwriters who grew up in the same town, the band formed over their mutual musical ambitions and interests. The band is best defined by their catchy melodies, tight harmonies, piano riffs, and gritty guitar. Goodman Brown's music has drawn praise from influential figures including Pat DiNizio (the Smithereens), Ray McVeigh (the Professionals), and Judd Lander (Culture Club).

The band recently finished recording their debut full-length Moon Digby, which was recorded in NYC and NJ, and mixed by Anthony "Rocky" Gallo (Cymbals Eat Guitars, The xx, The Killers) at the Cutting Room Studios in New York.

Great Dane:
Formed at SUNY Purchase, Great Dane was formed in September of 2009. Making their mark in Manhattans lower east side, the group has made a name for themselves with their piano based, indie rock sound accompanied with a powerful live show. Combining a natural folk sound with a driving rhythmic force, Great Dane will give you a show you can remember.
