A Fall Solstice Jamboree 2012
Venice Gas House Trolley (Madison, WI) grooves body and mind creating a unique and organic live music experience. VGHT's original jam-based songs and poems transport audiences
on a creatively wild and transformational trip through darkness and into the light.
Spoken of by fans as "A Cerebral Groove" and "Sacred Existential Fusion Rock," VGHT brings a sense of passion and performance to every live show. The Trolley's appearances include festivals such as The Tall Tree Lake Music Festival (Goreville, IL), The Muddy River Jam Fest (Woodstown, NJ), The Overgrown Music & Arts Festival (Belmont, NY), The Michigan Peace Fest (Lacota, MI), The 40th Annual Midwest Harvest Fest (Madison, WI) and over 200 performances from Wisconsin to New York City.
Digeometric/Chicago, IL/ Jazz, Techno, Funk
Digeometric is a concept idea that bloomed in June of 2010. The formation of this group happened both spontaneously and sporadically. The music being created by Digeometric occurs in the same manner.
"ALL THINGS MADE NEW-(JAM) Glowfriends, a shoegazing 6-piece from Kalamazoo, Michigan have released their 6th record. They might be the only band in history that is comprised of 3 couples. The core of the band is siblings April and Mark Morris. Mark’s wife Holly plays bass/vibes while April’s husband, Adam Zimont, plays guitar and that leaves the excellently-named JW and Jenn Hendrix on drums and vibes/glockenspiel respectively. The thing about their records, and I’ve heard (and enjoyed) all of them, is that each new one has been a little better than the one before it. After all, that’s what most bands are trying to do, right? On ALL THINGS MADE NEW this dream pop outfit has raised the bar and written their best batch of songs yet. The vocals between main vocalist April Zimont and her brother, Mark Morris are as confident as they are compelling and the swirling, 2-guitar lineup adds to the proceedings. A few of my favorite tunes on this record are the smooth opener “Wait for the Waves”, the haunting/driving “Explain Away”, the fuzzy “Jr. Mint”, the jangly “Through the Heart” and at least a few others. -DAGGER MAGAZINE
Ifdakar/Fox Valley, WI/Jamtronica
Ifdakar jam their way through a unique blend of funk, jazz, electronica, reggae, and rock music.
Ifdakar's pursuit of musical growth and experimental improvisation create an experience not to be forgotten. Hailing from Madison, Wisconsin, this five piece band has garnered recognition for their live performances, where the band channels elements of psychedelic rock, funk, jazz, and electronica. The result is a mind bending, dance infused, pedal to the metal sound that it is unmistakably their
From songs that are tragic, to songs that transcend, Ifdakar showcases an array of improvisational jamming and elaborately structured pieces that are steeped in influences such as Phish, Pink Floyd, Les Claypool, Lotus, STS9 and many others. This spectrum allows for dense musical freedom, to tension-and-release madness.
While relentlessly working on every aspect of the band, Ifdakar has been fortunate enough to open for such scene luminaries as Ozric Tentacles, EOTO, Xavier Rudd, Kim Manning of Parliament Funkadelic, Willie Waldman, Steve Molitz of Particle and more.
As Ifdakar continues to climb the ranks of the Midwest scene, their popularity has started to snowball. Reaching capacity at marquee club shows regularly, the band has begun to make the jump to theaters, picking up numerous new fans along the way.
