Strange Machines
Strange Machines
Boston-born, New England based quartet Strange Machines have been steadily making a name for themselves in the East Coast jam scene. What started as a band focused on rock and reggae has slowly melded into a true melting pot of musical fusion, with sounds catering to funk, livetronica, heavy rock and a multitude of other genre’s, all while stringing them together seamlessly to create a fluid and captivating live performance. Their original songs are nuanced by creative composition, practiced precision, and a looseness that allows them to truly explore the music they create.

They have shared the stage with national-touring acts such as Dopapod, Twiddle, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Turkuaz, Kung Fu, TAUK, Deep Banana Blackout, John Brown's Body, and more. Strange Machines have carved out their own niche in the east coast music scene and show no signs of slowing down.

Strange Machines released their latest studio album October 7, 2017. Founding member Mike MacDonald and long time keyboardist Christian Perron, with the additions of Craig Holland on bass and Isaac Civitello on drums, have honed in their sound and hit their stride as a four piece. "Voice of Color", the bands first full length release, is a representation of what the band has developed into, diving further into progressive experimental rock and funk more than ever before. Striving to consistently deliver a high energy and engaging live performance, the band has continued to gain momentum in the Northeast and beyond. This album aims to capture the diversity and big sound you will experience at a Strange show.

"Strange Machines is known for powerful, high-energy live performances that explore the depths of their music and cater to a breadth of listeners. None of the band’s beloved characteristics are lost on the album—rather, Voice of Color offers precisely executed arrangements of Strange Machines originals while still embodying the looseness and exploration you’d find at a live performance." - Live For Live Music
Electric Love Machine
Electric Love Machine
ELM (Electric Love Machine) is a Baltimore based quartet that combines Electronica, Dance, Rock, Soul, and Funk into an incomparable, high energy live music experience.

The heartbeat of ELM is drummer, Steve Gorsuch, who lays down relentless dance beats on a traditional kit peppered with polyrhythms and electro-glitches on Electronic drum pads.

Locking in on those beats with surgical precision on the bass is Colin Rappa. He has a Jazz background and plays tight, melodic bass lines that are grounded in unreality.

On piano, synth and backing vocals is Jon Brady. Tron's modulating hooks, speed and accuracy are the zenith of ELM's sound.

Rounding out the quartet on guitar and vocals is Jon Wood. Jon has a versatile vocal range and has a unique guitar playing style that includes solid rhythm playing, melodic interplay, and searing leads.

In addition to their original compositions and face melting jams, they like to play popular and classic tunes by other artists like David Bowie, Talking Heads, Daft Punk and many others.

XenofoneX is the band's debut album, and it was recorded, mixed and mastered by Chris Bentley at The Bunker Studio in Maryland.

Props must go to the band's stellar management team, who have been infinitely accommodating, supportive, flexible, and good looking.

ELM is eternally grateful for all the support they have received from family, friends and fans, and collectively intend to help this community flourish and grow and break down barriers in music, art and life
