www.justinrothberg.com
The Justin Rothberg group plays original instrumental music that takes inspiration from a variety of different styles. “We try to explore a variety of different styles of music. While the trio is rooted in jazz, we try to stay as open minded as possible. Songs are influenced by hiphop, funk, dub reggae, Latin, world music, and anything else the band has been listening to. We pride ourselves in having our own sound but try to keep the music from being too “cerebral” We want it to be interesting and fresh but also listenable. Thats very important to us. To keep the music from sounding stiff, everyone tries to trust each other’s musical taste. Even though I write all of the tunes, it’s still a very open vibe on stage. No matter what song the band is playing, we’re always open to experimentation. Most of the members of the band have known each other for around 10 yrs so we’ve got a great vibe going.”

Around 2013, Rumblecat appeared mysteriously on the side of the road somewhere between Macon, Motown, and New York City. They hitched a ride to Burlington, VT, tried some beer and maple syrup, and decided to stay a while. Their music is a funky rock’n’roll gumbo seasoned with sweet harmonies, sizzling solos, and hearty grooves.

8-10pm: New Pony - Funk / Soul

www.reverbnation.com/newpony
Upon first hearing New Pony it's understandable that most assume the band is made up of a group of transplants from New Orleans. The way these guys can tear into some vintage New Orleans funk leaves little doubt that they've got some bayou water in their soul. But the truth is that New Pony is home-grown from Philadelphia not New Orleans. Still, the overall impression from listening to these guys will make you swear they grew up playing in the dark and greasy dive bars of the crescent city. Philly may be bookended by the Delaware and Schuykill rivers, but it's the big muddy Mississippi and the dark waters of the bayou that flows through the heart and soul of this band.

While performing in Los Angeles several years ago, Bette’s voice drew the attention of one the biggest names in show business—Ray Charles. Introduced to her by their mutual voice teacher Seth Riggs, Mr. Charles took a keen interest in Bette’s original song “Stay Free” and invited her to collaborate with him shortly before his untimely passing.

His approach to improvisation stems from the roots of the jazz genre, yet branches out in new directions; respecting contemporary influences yet continually growing in its distinct direction.

Other favourite instrumentalists include Aaron Parks, Thelonious Monk, Clifford Brown, Brad Mehldau and Kris Davis, to name a few. Compositionally, Matt loves to tamper with traditional instrument roles, to place the spotlight on the whole rather than the individual, and to leave abounding room for improvisation.

After many incarnations, the band finally settled on its current lineup of lead guitar, rhythm guitar, bass, and of course, vocals. Franglais seeks to blend the rhythmic drive of gypsy jazz, the nostalgia of French chanson, and the distinct soul of American music.
