Lyle Divinsky's Soul Survivors
Lyle Divinsky's Soul Survivors
Lyle Divinsky, a.k.a. The Sasquatch of Soul, "doesn’t front: he sings soul and R&B, and that’s that. There are no tags or modifiers needed: his music is pure and honest. His focus is so spectacular that his originals sound like instant classics...” (Todd Richard, The Portland Phoenix). Hailing from Portland, ME, Divinsky moved to the delicious apple just over 3 years ago, and has been crooning his way into the hearts and hips of the 5 boroughs since. With a new album on the way featuring some of the baddest musicians in soul behind him, there's no limit to how far this Sasquatch will go. To quote NYC blogger/music aficionado, Sami Promisloff, "Lyle Divinsky is the minister of soul and master of babymaking music for ALL TIME... and scene."
Adam Deitch
Adam Deitch
Adam’s career has crossed genres, focusing on hip-hop, funk and jazz, playing the role of both drummer and producer. The son of two professional funk drummers and Berklee grads, Adam first picked up his sticks at the age of two. His first gig was at a school assembly for his kindergarten class.
Adam was inspired by hip-hop at an early age, listening closely to Public Enemy and Eric B and Rakim. Adam began his production career by making loops on a tape deck in his bedroom and has gone on to produce tracks for some of today’s top artists including Ledisi, Matisyahu, 50-Cent, Redman, Talib Kweli, KRS-One and MF Doom.
Adam has done major session work on drums for artists including Justin Timberlake, Daniel Bedingfield, Anthony Hamilton, DJ Quik and Wycleff, Black Rob and Afu-Ru and the Fugees record, sure to be one of the year’s biggest records. Recently Adam has made appearances touring with Pretty Lights, The Game (The Tonight Show), Slick Rick, Lauryn Hill, Pras of the Fugees, GZA of Wu-Tang Clan, Dead Prez, the Ying Yang Twins, John Medeski, Meshell Ndegeocello and his own Fyre Dept as well as being a regular part of Wycleff Jean and Eve’s band.
In his third year at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, he joined the world renowned Average White Band, with whom he performed for the two following years. Adam was featured on the band’s DVD, Live in LA, recorded at a sold out show at the House of Blues, and showed the band was at it’s best. While touring with AWB, Adam performed alongside many of his heroes including Earth, Wind and Fire, Tower of Power and Chaka Kahn.
Adam is a founding member of Lettuce, who has been recording and touring for 15 years. Lettuce features such noted musicians as Eric Krasno, Ryan Zoidis, Sam Kininger and Neal Evans of Soulive, Erick Coomes, Adam Smirnoff (Robert Randolph) and Rashawn Ross (Dave Mathews Band). Lettuce is a funk powerhouse with a cult following from NYC to Tokyo. Lettuce’s third studio record, RAGE! was released in April 2008 to rave reviews and sold out shows.
Adam has branched out from hip-hop and funk, recording and touring with jazz legend John Scofield. Adam has recorded on two of John’s latest records (both released on legendary label Verve Records), Up All Night, for which he also shares composers credit on many of the tracks, and the Grammy nominated Uberjam.
Recently, Adam’s focus has been on Break Science, his electro duo with collaborator Borahm Lee. Break Science club music in the vain of a “Live Mix Tape”, blending live trip-hop, broken-beat, dub, drum & bass and of course, hip-hop.

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.
