Regarding the band's debut CD, Jazziz magazine wrote "[Daryl  
Lowery and Instant!Groove] specialize in the funky soul-jazz grooves commonly referred to as 'acid-jazz.' . . . The rhythm section is elastic, mid-tempo patterns aid excellent solos‚ . . . resulting in a  
sound akin to guitarist John Scofield's A Go Go CD, on which he was backed by organ trio Medeski, Martin and Wood."

Atomic Tom

Somewhere between New York City and an unassuming Midwestern town, a van filled with high hats, guitar strings, amps, and cables is twisting its way down a two-lane highway. When it stops, its four occupants will pour into a small music club packed with eager followers. The band will plug in, tune up, and drown out the night with a sound destined to be much bigger than the stage their on.

That band is Atomic Tom.

Supporting Atomic Tom will be the band Gentleman Hall. Having already won a VMA for MTV's 2009 Best Breakout Artist Boston, Gentlemen Hall continues its meteoric rise through its latest collaborations with world-renowned producers Earl Cohen (The Temptations, Anita Baker) and Michael Seifert (Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Tori Amos). The band defines itself by the characteristic melodies of vocalists Gavin and Jacob Michael, fused with big guitars, big beats, and even bigger synths. The result is an unforgettable and highly energetic dance experience.
