About the performers:
BRASS QUEENS: Based out of NYC, this all female group is disrupting a male dominated genre. The Brass Queens perform a diverse repertoire featuring classic hits by woman artists, funk, soul and traditional NOLA second-line.

BRASSKILL: Brasskill is the Hudson Valley’s party brass band. Based in Hudson, NY and founded in the Spring of 2018, Brasskill’s membership covers a wide geographic area — from Rosendale in the south, all the way up to Great Barrington in the north. Bringing funky decibels to parties, parades and other merry gatherings in the Hudson Valley and surrounding areas, Brasskill’s music ranges from New Orleans second line tunes to punk and pop covers and is guaranteed to get your party out on the dance floor.

PONTOON combines the memory of childhood video games, superhero soundtracks, sci-fi and intergalactic life, with a passion for the unique, and never been done before. A sound experience that you didn’t know existed is what PONTOON delivers. They take seemingly traditional sounds and instruments, & run them through their creative brain grinders. The end result is a fantastically warped version of what you know music to be. 4 guys, vocals & vocoder, lots of brass, quadruple synthesizers, sound effects pedals and knobs, one standard drum kit, all the weird you can handle, and more cowbell.

SVB: full name Sarah Van Buren, most often located in upstate New York where she masterminds music + art festivals, throws deep dance parties and makes solo music in the realms of spooky pop / astral blues. SVB started DJing long ago at Emerson College in Boston at their freeform campus radio station, WECB. Later, while living in NYC, she co-founded CHERYL, a party / art collective that became infamous for throwing weird and wonderful dance parties and interactive events. With CHERYL, SVB performed and DJed at large nightlife and art events in and around NYC, in addition to touring abroad in the UK and Europe. Since moving to the Hudson Valley in 2014, she hosted a freeform late-nite radio show on WGXC called Pyramid Power! and co-founded a Hudson-based DJ collective called Mostly Girls.
