Joe Jung

Joe grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where snowstorms would bury cars and close schools for days. He hopped a train to Connecticut where it didn't snow that hard but the meteorologists predicted cataclysms. Now he lives in Astoria. When it snows here everything seems new.

SisterMonk

SisterMonk is a conundrum. Obviously it's a party, but what's the party about? It's funk, it's trance, but without drugs, and its nor quite hipster though that's the crowd right now. It's world music, but not really. It's hippie, earthy crunchy, let's heal ourselves, yay, but not really.
It's not mythic rock like Genesis or Pink Floyd, who flamboyantly retell the stories of their generation.
SisterMonk is something very acoustic -a djembe at the heart of the music, a female lead, could be Women's folk festival material, though who's going to relate to it - the lyrics are written by a man.
So there's that element of surprise. The lyrics are also imagistic. Ultimately, it's about the vibe, and the vibe is big and colorful.

Jamie Thomas Band

Jamie Thomas had his musical epiphany not at the proverbial crossroads but a schoolyard in Astoria, Queens, where the music of Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones and others touched his soul and inspired him to play music as well as write songs. He honed his skills as a performer playing New York clubs in a band before striking out on his own, making his bones as a solo act in the ground zero of the American folk movement, Greenwich Village's the Bitter End
