Moon Hooch

Spawned from New York City's subways in 2010, busking trio Moon Hooch (Wenzl McGown and Mike Wilbur on tenor saxophone, James Muschler on drums) has developed a style of dance music all their own: cave music. Moon Hooch creates frenzied foot-stomping bashes with nothing more than two saxophones, drums, and the occasional contrabass clarinet. 

Reminiscent of artists such as James Morrison, Ray LaMontagne, and David Ryan Harris, George Woods blends classic grooves and storytelling to create a signature style of folk-funk. Fans have described Woods's sounds as "a box of crayons with 1,000 colors in it." Randi Bernier of the rock group Mrs. Davers says,"George Woods's voice is pure and evocative, in a way that is capable of evoking the raw emotion and endless layers of his heartbreakingly poetic lyrics."

Coming off the success of the first independent EP, Technicolor Costs Too Much, released in summer 2011, Woods is gearing up to release his first full-length studio release entitled Heartbeat. Heartbeat features a steady lineup of stellar musicians in the Boston scene: Tyreek Jackson on bass, Maxwell Butler on keys, Heather "Soph" Smist on background vocals, and Victor Hernandez on drums and percussion.

Midnight Snack was formed by two brothers, Mike and Jack Johnson. For over a decade Mike and Jack have been writing and performing music together. Upon attending Berklee College of Music, this lively duo met the friends that soon would become the seven-piece family that is Midnight Snack.

Jay Nash, East Coast native and rock troubadour, has been blessed with the kind of excruciatingly rustic voice so rarely heard on record. Emerging into the national spotlight from the same Los Angeles music scene that gave rise to Sara Bareilles, Katy Perry, and many other current pop luminaries, Nash has shared the stage with everyone from the Counting Crows and Maroon 5 to Keb Mo and Dave Mason. He has logged more than a thousand live performances and sold more than 35,000 albums without ever having signed a conventional record label deal. He writes songs that are at once clever and down to earth. Although subdued at times, his voice articulates a quiet power that commands the attention of his listeners. Jay Nash is a "lifer." He’s a musician dedicated to the craft of songwriting and the life of the rock 'n' roll road show. His loyal fanbase was built brick by brick. See him once, and you will join them.
