    Thank You Scientist

    Art Rock

    With “more hooks than old tackle box, and more time changes than a broken pocket watch,” the band belies their humble suburban New Jersey roots with a sound that is undeniably unique. Boasting a seven piece band (collectively playing roughly twenty instruments) and a hyper-composed sound much indebted to the band members’ experience and formal training in both classical and jazz idioms, Thank You Scientist has been mesmerizing live

    audiences since their inception in 2010.

    Dubbed “The Top Unsigned Act in the Tri-State Area” shortly after the release of their debut EP, “The Perils of Time Travel,” the band hasn’t slowed down a bit.

    On June 8th 2012, the band releases their first full length record, “Maps of Non-Existent Places,” an album funded by fans from all over the world via a highly successful kickstarter campaign. The album is a stunning collage of influences. Progressive rock, jazz, fusion, classical, metal, psychedelic, 60s Pop and world music all seem to collide together at full speed, and the impact demands your attention.

    A Frank Zappa for the indie generation? Incubus jamming with the Mahavishnu Orchestra? Mr. Bungle and Steely Dan joining forces to fight Godzilla? King Crimson and the Brecker Brothers serenading you at your bedside? It all seems so strange on paper, yet it’s sure to satisfy your ears in the best of ways.

    Moon Tooth

    Progressive Rock

    Moon Tooth is the new project of long-time friends and collaborators Nick Lee & Ray Marte. The band formed after the breakup of their previous endeavor, Exemption, which released several albums and made many friends touring the east coast during their seven year run from 2005 - 2012. Determined not to let that band’s dissolve slow them down, they immediately began work on a bigger, bolder, more aggressive project that became known as Moon Tooth.

  • The Tea Club

    The Tea Club

    Progressive Rock

    “Challenging, modern, and frequently scintillating …an incredible future” are the words Prog Magazine used to describe The Tea Club. 

    Formed in the mid 2000s by brothers Patrick and Dan McGowan, The Tea Club have been grappling with the confines of rock music over the span of four critically acclaimed albums. Their signature lush harmonies, alternate guitar tunings, and emotive lyricism serves as a core to their wild experimentation with style and instrumentation. Their live performances are visually dramatic: backdrops accompanying a raw and explosive stage presence. Their sound is dynamic, vibrant, and eclectic, with comparisons to anywhere from early Genesis, to Oceansize or Radiohead.

    Since 2008, acclaimed Producer/Engineer Tim Gilles (Anthrax, Taking Back Sunday, Jeff Buckley, Thursday), discovered the band and recorded, produced, and mixed their four studio albums. In support of their most recent album Grappling, The Tea Club performed with Haken, Toby Driver (John Zorn, Kayo Dot, Maudlin the Well), and Bent Knee, and embarked on an extensive tour with Thank You Scientist and Moon Tooth. 

    The Tea Club consists of Patrick McGowan (Guitar, Vocals), Daniel McGowan (Guitar, Vocals), Jamie Wolff (Bass), Joseph Dorsey (Keyboards), and Daniel Monda (Drums)
