Agent Moosehead - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Agent Moosehead
“Over the last decade, Agent Moosehead has pushed the boundaries of that four letter word (J-A-Z-Z) and with the support of a diverse and ever-changing lineup of musicians has helped cultivate a new Philly-sound which shakes up the status quo and challenges musical norms. Agent Moosehead is known for thoughtfully composed music inspired by the likes of Zappa, King Crimson, Nintendo music, Miles Davis and a wide variety of 1970’s jazz, rock and fusion innovators. Fans have learned to expect the unexpected in the form of odd time-signatures, surprise covers, theme shows, exploratory improvisation, special guests & more.”
Gnarbot - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Years in the making, Gnarbot is a project that draws from a broad sonic palette to create a unique blend of sounds inspired by modern artists like Animals as Leaders, The Donny McCaslin Quartet, and Flying Lotus as well as classics like The Mahavishnu Orchestra, Herbie Hancock, and King Crimson. Still in their 20's, members of the band have attained great experience in the music world: tours with Jon Anderson of Yes and John Wetton of King Crimson/UK, bills shared with Parliament Funkadelic, Lettuce, Project Object, Papadosio, Squarepusher and Mark Guiliana, and endorsements by major companies such as Meinl Cymbals and DigiTech. As a new band on the scene, Gnarbot endeavors to push boundaries, turn heads, and offer a fresh and energetic musical perspective.
Karmic Juggernaut - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Karmic Juggernaut
As the name suggests, psychedelic/progressive outfit Karmic Juggernaut is an overwhelming force of sound. Formed as a quartet in 2004, the Asbury Park-based group has amassed a reputation for their eclectic style, musicianship, unique stage performances, and innovative solar-powered recordings using the Sun Lab Studio. Over the years, Karmic Juggernaut has performed with many notable acts including Umphrey’s McGee, Bernie Worrell, Keller Williams, Marco Benevento, moe., Kung Fu, Screaming Headless Torsos, and many more, as well as being featured in Relix Magazine, on Comcast’s Bands on Demand, and a full special on PBS’ Driving Jersey program.

Karmic Juggernaut has more recently expanded to include the powerful vocals of Daimon Santa Maria and keyboardist Jake Hughes, along with auxiliary members Joe Gullace (trumpet), Ian Gray (trombone), and AJ Merlino (vibes & percussion). This lineup is currently working on a full-length LP recorded at The Hangar, the group’s own studio, for release in Summer 2018.
