The Royal Noise
The Royal Noise
Founded and led by guitarist Johan Harvey, Savannah's foremost jazz-funk collective quickly established itself as a high energy, grooving crew. Drawing from vintage and contemporary influences alike, they are conceiving an ebullient fusion of sinewy funk, gritty jazz, psychedelic rock and live hip-hop elements with a distinctly southern flavor, reminiscent of fusion acts like Herbie Hancock, Lost Tribe, Lettuce and Mother Funk Conspiracy.

“the whole damn band is a opack of rhythm devils … a clear case of a half-dozen souls consumed by percussion poltergeists, and there are only two things they could have done: call an exorcist or form a kick-ass jazz/funk band. Fortunately for us, The Royal Noise gave in to the beat beast and did the latter.” - Brian Robbins, JAMBANDS.COM
Universal Funk Order
Universal Funk Order
Universal Funk Order is 100%, straight no chaser, hot, groovy, in your face, this-is-what-I'm-talking-about, all original, FUNK. The 7 piece band, hailing from Newark, Delaware, takes the perfect mix of sounds from all sides of the spectrum, twists it with originality and spunk, and personally delivers the product to you, the people. This is the fresh, revived sound of 21st century funk, folks. We'll see you at the show.
Kings & Comrades
Kings & Comrades
Philadelphia-based reggae outfit Kings & Comrades began as an acoustic duo in 2006 and has since evolved into a prominent 7-piece band, including a full horn section. With conscious original music and an authentic, soulful sound, the band aims to bring their uplifting message to the masses. The group has released two EPs, with the more recent, “Hypnotized”, debuting at #9 on the iTunes reggae charts. In 2013, the Kings performed their biggest show to date at the California Roots Festival, where they shared the bill and a sold-out crowd with reggae giants including Slightly Stoopid, Rebelution, and Matisyahu. They've also shared local stages with bands like Tribal Seeds, Stick Figure, The Green, Ballyhoo, Mike Pinto, Three Legged Fox, and more. Kings and Comrades are currently in the studio working on their first full-length album, which is due out in 2014.
