The New Mastersounds
The New Mastersounds
In the late 1990’s, guitarist and producer Eddie Roberts was running a club night in Leeds called “The Cooker.” When The Cooker moved into a new venue with a second floor in 1999, there was space and the opportunity to put a live band together to complement the DJ sets. Simon Allen and Eddie had played together in 1997 as The Mastersounds, though with a different bassist and no organ. Through friends and the intimate nature of the Leeds music scene, Pete Shand and Bob Birch were added on bass and Hammond respectively, and The New Mastersounds were born. Though it was raw, and more of a boogaloo sound at first, it was powerful from the start. Their first rehearsal was hot enough for Blow it Hard Records to release on two limited-edition 7” singles in 2000.

Fast-forward 15 years and the recorded catalogue boasts 24 more 7” singles, 9 studio albums, 2 live albums, 1 remix album and 3 compilation albums, released variously in UK, USA and Japan, where they continue to tour extensively. Joe Tatton, another veteran of the Leeds scene, joined back in 2007, replacing Bob Birch on organ and piano.
The RunniKine
The RunniKine
The Runnikine is an improvisational funk music super-trio based out of Denver, CO. The band is comprised of three relentlessly hard working individuals – Will Trask (drums), Jon McCartan (bass), and Eric Luba (keys) - who have made a name for themselves in the scene with a constant variety of musical activity. In addition to their time on the road with several touring bands, each member of The Runnikine has been called upon individually by musical peers to provide their exceptional talents in the studio, as session musicians on recordings for other bands.

Having vast on-tour and in-studio experience has enabled this group to touch into the deepest levels of musical literacy, allowing them to create each show as a “from the hip” experience – meaning each concert is 100% spontaneous and unplanned, with set lists and jams being determined in real time, in front of a live audience. While every single show is completely different, one thing remains the same: You never know what might happen, or who might join them on the stage, and it will always be an incredibly funky dance party.
Space Orphan
Space Orphan
"Progressive old school. What does that even mean? For this group, it means providing a soulful, funky sound that is heavily based on groove, just as bands like The Meters and James Brown did in years past. But it also means taking those classic, danceable elements, and adding a few new tricks. Space Orphan will hit you in your soul and keep you dancing at the same time.



While they are joined by the killer horn section of trumpeter Gabriel Mervine (The Motet) and saxophonist Matt Pitts (formerly of The Motet), the core lineup showcases the shredding guitar work of Taylor Scott (Otis Taylor Band), the deep pocket of bassist Todd Edmunds (Otis Taylor Band), the tastefully funky beats of drummer Eric Imbrosciano, and kaleidoscope of aural colors provided by keyboardist and primary writer Jon Wirtz.

Having already drawn comparisons to bands like Soulive, Lettuce, and Mothership Connection-era P-Funk, buzz around the band has grown quickly, along with a loyal fanbase. In the band's short history, they have already shared the stage with the legendary George Porter Jr. (The Meters),as well as members of Lettuce, Vulfpeck, Big Gigantic, Snarky Puppy, Kneebody, Leftover Salmon, The Motet and Kyle Hollingsworth Band. Their debut record, Shut Up About The Sun, is due for release on September 30, 2016. "
