DeadPhish Orchestra
DeadPhish Orchestra
The DeadPhish Orchestra is a quartet of Colorado musicians who, above all, are close friends who have played together for many years. They had played Grateful Dead songs together, and they had played Phish songs together. But they got to wondering what would happen if they tried to merge the music of these two bands, the Granddaddies and Daddies of the jamband scene.

Taylor Scott Band
It isn't often that music heavily influenced by soul, funk, blues, jazz, and rock & roll comes out of a town like Cheyenne, Wyoming. One listen to Taylor Scott's first full-length solo album, "Lonelier with You," and you'll believe that however unlikely, it happens.

"Growing up in Wyoming didn't make it easy to find this music," Taylor says. "We couldn't just walk down the street and hear a great live band on a Friday night. We really had to go out of our way to find it. As a result, I learned to never take music for granted, especially the
type that moved me."

Taylor Scott is a guitarist, singer, and songwriter who grew up in Cheyenne. His newest record, "Lonelier with You," was released in the spring of 2014. The album puts the spotlight on honest and memorable song craft, expressive vocals, and Taylor's signature soulful guitar
work. Both in the studio and on the road, Taylor is accompanied by a group of musicians who are amazing, both individually and collectively.

"I'm calling what we do 'soul/jam,' because there's not really one genre name for it. When people ask me what type of music we play, it's kind of hard to explain. It's soul music, blues, funk, jazz, rock & roll, jam, and a bunch of other things. It's most like soul music, except the vocals aren't the only focus. We improvise, solo, and play off each other a lot. 'Soul/jam' seems like an appropriate title."

When Scott isn't touring and recording with The Taylor Scott Band, he is playing lead guitar with blues legend Otis Taylor. Over the past few years, Scott has toured all over the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
Taylor Scott is an exciting young artist with unlikely roots whose music and band refuse to be
STIG is an all-instrumental, progressive jazz/funk band from Boston, MA.

Consisting of 5 close friends, STIG aims to bring people together with their music. The tight communication and positive energy shared between everyone in the group brews a raw and exciting experience at every show. STIG came together during their time at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. They spent most of their first year together playing sweaty, overflowing basement shows in Allston, the student filled neighborhood in Boston. STIG’s music is all original and is always written as a group to draw from everyone’s genre-crossing influences.

STIG was invited to play the main stage at the NAMM Music Convention in Anaheim, CA in January of 2016 and from that point forward they’ve solidified their lineup and have been touring all over the Northeast. They released their first live album, “FLEX”, in September of 2016 and their EP, "Downtown Tom" was released in July of 2017. The band recently completed a successful tour of the Southwest and West Coast and is continuing to fill their calendar with national tour plans. Be on the lookout for new videos and tour dates from STIG!!

“We want our listeners to enjoy our music just as much as we enjoy playing it. To play music that makes you smile and move with us is our goal. We all find inspiration in many different genres and enjoy making groovy music with the different ideas we hear on a daily basis.”
