Post War Dream – 5:10 PM
“Indie-rock quartet Post War Dream posted the lead single to its upcoming full-length album, We’ll Be Just Fine, which was recorded at Woodbrook Recording and produced by Paul Hocynec. “Fading In” tackles the often difficult topic of addiction, with Rob Tomlinson’s weathered-sounding vocals poetically sharing the cautionary tale. Joined by Tiffany Adams, Justin Foley, and Jason Gooch, the group successfully balances warm, heartfelt melodies with instrumental bursts of welcomed release.”

It was pure fate Frankie De Rosa and Robbie Simmons collided on a cold winter night in Boston when an inescapable snowstorm caught the two in Frankie’s room. The musical duo had sprung from that night forward creating their future musical collaborations under the name Ivory. Frankie who carves his sound through ukulele, Woodwinds, and lead vocals, while contributing an irreplaceable allure of Eastern influences, bled into Robbie’s productions. While also playing keyboard, Robbie acts as a producer, aiding the construction of the indie/folk fusion sound the two create. Personal experiences projected into fantasy develop their sound into a hopeful, narrative themed journey.
We deal in rock, jazz, funk, reggae, neo-soul, and we play live. We can take to any stage, in any circumstance and do what we do without the aid of a computer. It’s real, and that in and of itself, I believes sets this band apart. Music is singular to the individual: We each bring something to the table the others don’t have, and together we create something that is unique. If you were to take a cross-section of who we are, and what we do, you’d find permutations of that which has already been done: At the core, we’re a power trio, and an MC fronts the band. Growing up in the late 90s, early 2000’s unfortunately I remember that era of bands categorized as ‘rap-rock’ (..and zero guitar!!); yet none of those bands were equipped with a neo-soul wizard on the keys. Conversely, there are many r&b outfits that dabble in hip hop and soul; yet, I’ve yet to see one with a lead guitar player blowing LA rock guitar through a Marshall stack.
The Quixote Project – 2:10 PM
We are a neo-roots music outfit. From Rock to Rockabilly, Bluegrass to Blues we like to pull from traditional genres to blur the fine lines of modern music. “Frontman Jeff Selby and a revolving cast of musicians have distilled the multi-genre sounds of a beachfront music festival into a remarkably cohesive live set, with hints of bluegrass, folk, and rock in a style that would be pigeonholed as “jam” if the songwriting wasn’t so explicitly pop-oriented” says Dave Fox of MUSIC WITHOUT LABELS.
We have shared the stage with notable artists such as Little Big Town, Miranda Lambert, Charlie Daniels, John Pardi, Ben Arnold, Sister Sparrow and the Dirty Birds, The Goddamn Gallows, Hoots & Hellmouth.

The Wayside Shakeup began in 2003 in an apartment in Philadelphia, PA. Founding members Chris DʼAntonio and Rob Volansky wrote a handful of original tunes that would eventually make up their self-titled debut album. In 2011, after several years of gigging as an acoustic duo, mutual friend and keyboardist Eric Raible was asked to record on The Wayside Shakeupʼs debut album (The Wayside Shakeup), and signed on as the full-time keyboardist shortly after. The lineup was filled out with John McLeod on bass and Mike Leger on drums.
The bandʼs diverse sound draws from a wide variety of influences of the members, from shades of groups like Pearl Jam to the Grateful Dead to Gaslight Anthem to Pink Floyd, and all points in between. Together, they form a melodic sound filled with soaring harmonies, compact jams, raucous blues romps, power-pop ballads and more – everything needed to get the crowd moving.
