The Alpaca Gnomes, a Bridgeport-based, vibrant, stomp-and-groove, rock-folk band, are a sight to behold. Voted Connecticut Magazine’s best Connecticut band (2022), their songs will move your body and soul with their genre-spanning original catalog. Insightful singer/songwriter style lyrics melt into jammy sections full of tasty fiddle and saxophone parts, all held together by a thumping bass and two-piece rhythm section of drums and percussion.

Historically known for their long continuous sets full of fan-favorite originals and unique covers, which get the gnome treatment as the band makes them their own.

Pangea

Pangea is a visionary, genre-bending ensemble based out of the Nest Arts Factory in Bridgeport, CT. Conceived by Kris Studebaker and Nicholas Yost, Pangea boldly explores the boundaries of music, blending diverse global influences into a captivating, body-enveloping groove. As an ensemble, Pangea paints enigmatic psychedelic strokes over a cosmic backdrop of modern and ancient rhythms, creating a colorful, perpetually-kinetic sonic spiral.

Renowned for their remarkable versatility and adaptability, Pangea’s members draw from a vast multiverse of musical and visually artistic inspirations to craft their distinct signature sound. Blistering past common conventions Pangea, instead, diverges into a kaleidoscope of rich, vibrant tones and resonant vibrations. This collective of musicians includes: (drummer) Kris Studebaker, (conguero) Sam Mendez, (percussionist/vocalist) Will Diaz, (bassist) Mike Rachinsky, (guitarist) Jeff Wickun, (woodwinds) Georgios Giannios, and (keyboardist and musical director) Nicholas Yost.​

Funky Dawgz are one of the premier touring acts on the live music scene today. It is impossible not to enjoy yourself during a show as they play a contagious upbeat mix of original music, hip hop, funk, and today’s top hits with a brass twist.

Emerging from Connecticut, they have toured internationally and have been featured in all corners of the live music scene. From playing sold out shows at Madison Square Garden as the horn section for Dispatch, to Okeechobee, to closing out The Peach Music Festival, their performances flow seamlessly from EDM festivals to jam band festivals.

The Funky Dawgz are dropping jaws. These high energy horns have been featured with Dispatch, Tower of Power, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Galactic, Sammy Rae & The Friends, Lawrence, Vulfpeck, We The Kings, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Snarky Puppy, The Soul Rebels, Lettuce, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Rebirth Brass Band, Twiddle, and the list continues.

When the band is not playing shows they are giving back to the community. The Funky Dawgz aim to connect, engage, inspire and rejuvenate music education in inner city schools across the country. The band frequently gives performances and master classes to young musicians in elementary, middle, and high schools across the region.

Come see what all the hype is about. Ain’t no party like a Funky Dawgz party, ‘cus a Funky Dawgz party don’t stop!
