Headtronics are a brand-spankin’ new funk trio featuring Freekbass, DJ Logic, and keyboardist Steve Molitz of Particle. Spawned at the Universal Church of Love and Music Funk Festival and named by legendary funk bassist Bootsy Collins, Headtronics is one of the most exciting new projects to hit the Funk and Electronica scene in years.
THE STATE BIRDS:
The State Birds are Mike Seal (Jerry Douglas Band, Sierra Hull), Neal Fountain (Jimmy Herring Band, Randall Bramlet), Bryan Lopes (Atlanta Symphony), and Jeff Sipes (Col. Bruce Hampton & the Aquarium Rescue Unit, Phil Lesh, Trey Anastasio, Warren Haynes, Susan Tedeschi, Leftover Salmon, Jimmy Herring). Their band name is a nod to Bruce Hampton. Each of the band members played with Hampton for a spell and share a unique musical bond. The bands’ roots go back to 1983 in Atlanta, but this is a brand new project.
Another new collaboration, TJ Young, Stuart Angel, Matt Leonard, and Chris Eanes makeup Y.A.L.E. – a high energy musical adventure combining expansive jamming with succinct song writing to delight and excite the listener.
