Strange Machines

Boston-born, New England based quartet Strange Machines have been steadily making a name for themselves in the East Coast jam scene. What started as a band focused on rock and reggae has slowly melded into a true melting pot of musical fusion, with sounds catering to heavy rock, funk, livetronica and a multitude of other genre’s, all while stringing them together seamlessly to create a fluid and captivating live performance. Their original songs are nuanced by creative composition, practiced precision, and a looseness that allows them to truly explore the music they create.
They have shared the stage with national-touring acts such as Dopapod, Twiddle, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Turkuaz, Kung Fu, TAUK, Deep Banana Blackout, John Brown’s Body, and more. Strange Machines have carved out their own niche in the east coast music scene and show no signs of slowing down.
Strange Machines are set to release a new album Fall of 2017. Founding member Mike MacDonald and long time keyboardist Christian Perron, with the additions of Craig Holland on bass and Isaac Civitello on drums, have honed in their sound and hit their stride as a four piece. “Voice of Color”, the bands first full length release, is a representation of what the band has developed into, diving further into progressive experimental rock and funk more than ever before. Striving to consistently deliver a high energy and engaging live performance, the band has continued to gain momentum in the Northeast and beyond. This album aims to capture the diversity and big sound you will experience at a Strange show.
“Strange Machines is known for powerful, high-energy live performances that explore the depths of their music and cater to a breadth of listeners. None of the band’s beloved characteristics are lost on the album—rather, Voice of Color offers precisely executed arrangements of Strange Machines originals while still embodying the looseness and exploration you’d find at a live performance.” – Live For Live Music
Groovestick is a modern organ trio with an eclectic and unique blend of blues, soul, funk and rock. They have been regularly playing the Northeast for 5 years with a variety of finely tuned original songs and some familiar covers thrown in. With supporting slots for great bands like Kung Fu, Spiritual Rez and Lucid among others the band has made a name for themselves as a trio to be reckoned with. Currently working on a new album for 2018, the boys are as polished as ever and making waves across NY and beyond.
