Doors 8pm

Ripping out of Connecticut, Joon has made a name for themselves, creating a unique sound that blends a mix of rock and funk with soulful songwriting. Joon has built a reputation of being a vocal powerhouse, delivering high energy in every performance with a sound similar to that of Hall & Oates, Dave Matthews Band, and Red Hot Chili Peppers.

The band has been touring all over the eastern states at notable venues like Pearl Street Ballroom, Brighton Music Hall, Visulite Theater, Rockwood Music Hall, and many others since their start in 2016.

They have shared the stage with acts such as Ripe, the Hip Abduction, Zach Deputy, Aqueous and held featured slots at major festivals including High Hopes Music & Arts Festival in 2018. With a passion for blending songwriting and powerful rock grooves, Joon thrives on evolving their sound and will continue to bring the house down.

Joon released their debut album, Back to Reality, in May 2017!

Hailing from Albany, NY, Wurliday brings together some of the most exciting, dynamic musicians in the live music scene for a lively injection of soul-funk goodness, direct to your ears. The group led by guitarist/songwriter Justin Henricks, and fronted by vocalist Ilana Morris brings forth a new take on combining funk, soul, and songwriting. Behind the vocalists, their rhythm section packs two guitars, bass, drums, and screaming organ that is sure to have you dancing all night long.

Wurliday has been making their way onto the scene in a big way having shared stages with legendary acts such as The Meters, EnVogue, and more. Their latest release, ‘Bedtime Blazer Vol. II’ is the conclusion of a two EP collaboration project that features special guests Jennifer Hartswick, Girl Blue, and Steve Swatkins to name a few. Bedtime Blazer was recorded and produced by Alan Evans (Soulive) at his Iron Wax Studio in Millers Falls, MA.
