LiquidLight

Melodic Pop-Rock Powerhouse

LiquidLight

LiquidLight is a true rock band. In an age where popular culture pushes to "out-extreme" the latest and greatest, LiquidLight pursues balance and clarity with respect to great rock tradition. With their first full length album, 2015's Uninitiated, they were named Best Emerging Alt Rock Band by the prestigious Deli Magazine. Their debut showcased the band's tremendous potential as a post-punk, alternative powerhouse. Referencing such formers as Husker Du and The Replacements, LiquidLight has

been described as "melodic, thoughtful and jingle-jangly as well as shred-crazy and powerful."

LiquidLight's sophomore LP Wicked Radio, released in September 2017 was mastered at Capitol Studios in Los Angeles and " ...is a commentary on the divide between pop songs and having strong instrumental personality. Those things used to be wrapped up in one package but they have been growing further apart for decades. Our goal was to bring them together in our own way." 

LiquidLight has the psychedelic energy of a 70s band on the road for the first and last time. Living on the
edge, living through the hurdles of existence and most of all living for the love of creating something that
adds a sparkling narrative to the rock scene. With a high standard of execution, strong melodies and elements of psychedelic and alternative influences, the music conveys a new, yet referential optimism. "LiquidLight has managed to produce an album that is not quite like anything else hitting your eardrums lately" - Eleven Magazine

Songwriters Anthony Medici and Cory West, both Berklee College of Music alums, honed their craft while performing with bands in Boston and along the East Coast. They are each highly accomplished multi-instrumentalists backed by an explosive and versatile rhythm section. Medici's lead vocals lend a cryptic yet powerful element to the sound and structure of the band, echoing the melodic sensibilities of the college/alternative era.

Stan McMahon Band

Wide-ranging rock covers

Stan McMahon Band

"As someone who has to be routinely reminded to tie his shoes, it's always impressive to meet a person blessed with a spot-on elephant's memory. Stan McMahon, despite 50 plus years and 50,000 plus beers under his belt, is still sharp as a tack when it comes to rock. Rightfully earning his self styled reputation as "'he Human Jukebox,' the man's mental songbook is heavy with Beatles, Byrds and Big Star. Though he's mainly garnered attention with his Guided by Voices cover band, Giant Bug Village, the Stan McMahon Band serves up equally tasty slabs of power-pop goodness." - Josh Blanchard, Portland Mercury

"An interesting quality to Stan's songs, and something that perhaps does betray his age, is the lack of cynicism and irony in his vocals. His slightly husky voice sounds completely earnest, but not annoyingly so, and his lyrics always provide for a hand out of the darkness to help, redemption for those needing it, and other sweet, tender sentiments that are refreshing in an age when so many rock acts. With the snappy musical and harmony backing of his Peacocks, a full Stan McMahon sound is a terrific mix of melodicism and optimism." - inmusicwetrust.com
