Medusa’s Disco w/ Jon Smith’s Voyages & YAM YAM

 

Medusa’s Disco

Bridge_1

 

Formed in Fall of 2012, Medusa’s Disco has since released 2 full lengths, 2 Eps, opened up for National and International Acts including The Districts, Living Colour, Badfish, Jimmies Chicken Shack, Flux Capacitor, Jerry Joseph & the Jackmormans, all with great reception.

This band has a barefoot, banging style all their own. Two great singer-guitarists out front and a raging backline make MD an indie rock band must watch.

Their unique sound is attributed to their exotic guitar playing, stand out vocal harmonies, and the vast amount of different influences that they have clashed together. They also feature a completely unique acoustic side featuring dominant sitar and the whimsical violin of Robin Chambers. Some of these influences may include 90’s grunge music, and the evident use of late 60’s psychedelic music.

So wake up after a good sleep, hop in a cold shower then do 20 really fast jumping jacks, drink 3 espressos and smoke 4 cigarettes. After doing all of this if you don’t have a heart attack you will understand the energy of a Medusa’s Disco performance.

Oh, by the way, music isn’t the only channel this band uses for creativity. In 2016 they released their own video game “Medusa’s Pixel” where you play as the band members in a retro style game. You can play it at medusaspixel.com. 


 

Jon Smith’s Voyages

Jon Smith’s Voyages is the solo project of Jon Smith, a musician native to Reading, PA. The project was born out of Smith’s love for writing songs, recording, and desire to play a variety of instruments. He plays no less than 15 instruments on his debut album (due out in 2016) which spans multiple genres and moods. With thoughtful lyrics, catchy yet unique arrangements, and a dynamic vocal range, he’s likely to leave audiences captivated.

Looks like Morrison. Sounds like Bowie. Plays piano like Mercury.
Influences
ELO, the Kinks, Scott Joplin, Queen, The Band, David Bowie, Supertramp Father John Misty, the Decemberists, Billy Joel


YAM YAM

“When a new band catches the attention of a large music scene as quickly as this one has it is never something to be taken lightly. Yam Yam is a project that has only existed for just over a year, but in that time they have blazed a trail of extremely rowdy shows all of which have turned into funked out dance parties. The sound of Yam Yam is one the likes of, Medeski Martin & Wood, Vulfpeck and Badbadnotgood. You can expect their set to be a delicious mix of extremely funky improvisation, fast paced rhythmic Latin grooves, and covers ranging from Michael Jackson to Outkast.”
