Waterbury Road
Originating from the vibrant cultural mix of Montclair, New Jersey, emerges Waterbury Road, a dynamic band crafting original compositions and transforming beloved tracks across diverse genres—Americana, Blues, Rock, Jam, and Funk—delivering an irresistible musical journey. Their performances often feature surprise guest musicians, fostering a profound sense of community and inclusion. Waterbury Road’s core objective revolves around creating an uplifting atmosphere and uniting their community through the power of music.
Working Man’s Jed
The music of the Grateful Dead continues to grow and evolve, long after the band played their last show, nearly 25 years ago. The songs are timeless. The members of Workingman’s Jed share a common love for the Dead’s musical cannon, great jams, and beautiful multi-part vocal harmonies.
We strive to honor the original compositions through our individual styles and musical experiences, to create something familiar, yet different and special. We design unique set lists for each show, merge songs together in original ways, and always push ourselves to do new things. We thrive on the energy we get from each other (and the audience).
Whether it’s a packed venue or a private party, you’ll see us all playing with big smiles on our faces, bringing it. This has helped make us a favorite live act among both Dead heads and non-Dead heads alike. It’s been a fun ride so far, but we are just getting started.
Bard Band
The BARD Band’s blend of original rock, funk, country and more is inspired by some of history’s great poets. Shakespeare. E.E. Cummings. Robert Browning. C.P. Cavafy. All set to music that will get you moving and grooving. Our new album, Come Back Often, is streaming everywhere.
