North Carolina based Hip Bones features:Gary Schwantes on saxophones and bamboo flutes, Shannon Hoover on bass and loops and Robin Tolleson on drums.Visit:http://www.hipbones.nethttp://www.myspace.com/hipbones4for audio, video, photos and more! Bad long before The Bad Plus, Hip Bones has been called “renegade jazz,” “psychedelic funk,” and “monsters of the mash-up.” It has been written, “These gentlemen push the boundaries of jazz…and get away with it!”Hip Bones’ music combines funk and dub-flavored original instrumentals, along with spirited psychedelic covers from such diverse sources as Jimi Hendrix, The O’Jays, Sting, and Freddie Hubbard. Hip Bones has released two CDs, Threedom and 4. They are working on a new release recorded in Nashville with Grammy-winning engineer/producer Bil Vorndick (Bela Fleck & The Flecktones, Allison Krauss).A trio that plays more like a five-piece, Hip Bones gives jazz a good name, bringing new listeners into the fold each performance with their imagination, irreverence, tasty musical impressions and improvisations. “Together they sound like a band twice their size. They’ve also managed to achieve that prized goal of musicians – a unique sound.” Paul Wertico“It’s one thing to mash-up songs using studio trickery. It’s another to do so onstage with your bare hands, like jazz-funk trio The Hip Bones does.” (Metromix)“Angular melodies, time-twisting rhythmic figures and fluent solos, often over hard-grooving loops. Anyone interested in quality jazz, funk, and world music for that matter, can find plenty of interest in Hip Bones.” (Roanoke Times)“Seriously funky jazz from San Francisco, this all-instrumental trio is all about deeply textured grooves and tight improv, on material from the likes of Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Bob Marley, and Radiohead.” (Connect Savannah)

Alien Music Club is essentially an on-going studio project conceived and produced by Jonathan Pearlman (JP) of Asheville, NC.JP grew up hearing light jazz and pop music. His first musical icons were Elvis Presley and Bobby Darin. He was performing for audiences at age seven. He began playing guitar at age nine. JP’s influences are far-reaching, absorbing Lennon/McCartney, Hendrix, Clapton, and Motown, during the 60’s. Jazz-fusion bands of the early 70’s were also influential, like Mahavishnu Orchestra, Weather Report and Frank Zappa. These became JP’s earliest jazz-rock influences. Other influences include Tom waits, Roger Waters, David Gilmour, Donald Fagan, Ian Hunter, Joni Mitchell, Jeff Beck, Joe Pass, Wes Montgomery, Dizzy Gillespie, Horace Silver, Charles Mingus, Paul Simon, Todd Rungren and Joe Walsh.JP was continually writing, singing and playing in bands throughout his college years, and he graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Broadcasting in 1978. Fast forward the next 20 years or so, and he had become a successful videographer and producer, all the while pursuing his music. During the 1990’s, JP adopted the pseudonym “Alien Music Club”. The idea of a club came from the desire to incorporate the talents of other musicians and friends in the creative process. The “Alien” concept comes from the wildly eclectic nature of JP’s music, which defies categorization. “It’s really a musical melting pot,” says JP.

Space Jesus aka Jasha Tull is a Brooklyn, NY based electronic music producer. Born and raised in New Jersey, Jasha’s firm roots in hip-hop are apparent in most of his productions. With a focus on bass-line synthesis, commanding beats and futuristic feels, Jasha injects his signature sound on every sub-genre he graces.

With a reputation for his dynamic live performances, Space Jesus recently completed a national tour supporting Break Science. He’s also been handpicked to support Tipper, Big Gigantic, Zeds Dead, Die Antwoord, Rusko, Shpongle, Infected Mushroom and Feed Me, to name a few. Additionally, he’s been granted prime spots at festivals such as Mysteryland USA, (Bethel Woods, NY,) TomorrowWorld, (Atlanta, GA,) Shambhala, (Salmo, BC,) and 710 Cup (Denver, CO,).

Space Jesus’ next full-length album titled Close Encounters will be released Fall 2015 via Brooklyn-label Smokers Cough. This highly anticipated album, arguably his grittiest, most mind bending work to date, blends heavy hip-hop influences with a distinct psychedelic flare. Close Encounters takes listeners on an intense journey through intergalactic gangster truths and crunchy bass textures.
