Box Era
Box Era
Risen from the ashes of keg-fueled house parties and sweaty bars of College Park, MD, Box Era has planted itself as a staple in the up-and-coming DMV music scene. Creating a jam-inspired electro-pop and funk blend, Box Era’s music arms you with every tool necessary to go talk to that special someone you’ve been eyeing up. You’ll find yourself dancing the night away, shaking hands with CEOs, and experiencing the juiciest sweet-and-sour jamwich of your life.

With a debut EP behind them and another round the corner, Box Era is gearing up for an explosive rise to power. The band has supported national headliners and headlined renowned venues across the region. The party is only going to grow. There’s a saxophone, a talkbox, and two pairs of glasses. There’s magic, youth, and the most unique sound you’ve heard since The Bangles. Box Era is the story of five boys wandering the halls of Xanadu, forever in search of sweet cream.
Second Self
Second Self
SECOND SELF is a psychedelic and experimental quartet that intricately bridges the chasm between rock and funk. With melodic guitar riffs, elaborate bass lines and feverishly measured drumming, balancing the jam and metal scene never sounded as exquisite and universally appealing. They create and play original music that showcases their ability to transition between tight arrangements and flowing improvisation. Unique, amicable and musically passionate, Jimmy Hunter (guitar), Brett Tozzi (guitar), Nick Stampone (bass), and Jeff Hunter (drums) intertwine to form a single inspiring entity, a Second Self.
Squaring The Circle
Squaring The Circle
Founded by seasoned members of the Baltimore music scene, Squaring The Circle's prog-funk sound has set out to breathe new life into classic funk and jazz fusion with their original material that somehow brings these genres into a contemporary light.

Their shows in 2017 have showed fans what they were all about. From taking on crowds at Domefest and Hot August Music Festival to sharing single bills with Kung Fu, Big Something, Aqueous, and The Main Squeeze, this power group shows no signs of stopping as it continues to rise in the many music scenes of the Mid-Atlantic.

Carl, Dan, Nate, and Tyler started this journey in late 2014 by immediately finding challenging music and creating definitive medleys featuring some of their favorite tunes. Since then, they have grown more comfortable with each others' musical voice while crafting very unique original material that has been turning heads and creating a huge buzz with each growing crowd.

The group will be hosting a four-week October residency in Baltimore where they will debut several new songs and perform tributes to John Scofield, Soulive, Rush, and Santana. All this new material will be in their repertoire as they plan to record and hit venues in MD, PA, WV, NY, and VA.
