Medusa's Disco
Medusa's Disco
Medusa's Disco is a very peculiar Freak Psychedelic Rock group from Lancaster, PA that has been captivating audiences all around the United States for almost 5 years now. Within this time the band has released 3 full lengths, 2 EPs, played in front of 10,000 intoxicated people, toured to SXSW, performed nude at a vampires clothing optional party (well MOST of the band was nude at least...), and many more odds and sods, leaving deep and memorable impressions in their wake.
Fusing together elements of psychedelic/stoner, indie, progressive rock and even some jazz nuances, Medusa's Disco merges classic and newer rock influences; everything from Led Zeppelin to Primus to Queens of the Stone Age.
Porter & Sayles
Porter & Sayles
Porter & Sayles are a folk/pop duo from Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania consisting of singer/songwriters, Christian Porter and Regina Sayles. Combining acoustic guitar, mandolin and various other eclectic instruments, Porter and Sayles creates a unique modern pop sound with traditional folk inspiration. Before combining forces to become Porter & Sayles, Christian and Regina had established solo careers as songwriters and performers in their own elements. Christian and Regina first met in late 2006 performing on a joint bill in New York City. After realizing the short living distance between the two of them, Christian and Regina forged a musical friendship and would often feature one another at each other’s shows. Between solo careers, school and life in general, Porter & Sayles did not officially take shape until April 2015 when the duo decided to release a cover video of Sheppard’s “Geronimo.” The positive response to the video led to Porter & Sayles opening for Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo’s 35th Anniversary Tour on July 4, 2015. You can download both Regina and Christian’s solo original music online and on iTunes.
Gainstrive
Gainstrive
WE ARE GAINSTRIVE;
​A 5 PIECE ROCK BAND FROM BUCKS COUNTY, PA

OUR MUSIC IS AN INTERESTING BLEND OF MANY DIFFERENT INFLUENCES WITH ROOTS STEMMING FROM ROCK, PUNK, ALTERNATIVE, AND METAL. YOU MIGHT PICK UP ON A PUNCHY PUNK GROOVE, HOLDING UP A THICK WALL OF CHUNKY POWER CHORDS. YOU MAY HEAR A HEADBANGING BREAKDOWN, BURIED UNDER A HAUNTING VOCAL MELODY AND CATCHY HARMONIES. THE BOTTOM LINE IS SIMPLE: IF YOU LIKE HIGH ENERGY RIFFING, FLOWING MELODIC LEADS, AND CATCHY VOCAL MELODIES, THIS BAND IS FOR YOU! OUR SONGS DEFINITELY HAVE A CLEAR AND COHESIVE STYLE, BUT EACH OF THEM ARE WRITTEN WITH A UNIQUE SOUND AND FEELING IN MIND. WHETER IT'S THE DARK ATMOSPHERIC APPROACH WE CREATE IN "TRUTH IN DEMISE" OR THE GRUNGY ALT TEXTURE FLESHED OUT IN "LEFT BEHIND", WE WANT TO GIVE THE LISTENER A SENSE OF IMMERSION.
