The Dusk Whales
The Duskwhales are a three-piece indie rock band formed in Manassas, Virginia in 2010. With influences ranging from The Beatles and The Doors to Vampire Weekend and Of Montreal, the young trio melds a retro 60’s feel with a modern twist of intricate rhythms and upbeat melodies that permeates onstage and in recordings.
They have shared the stage with national acts Diane Coffee, Jesse McCartney, Car Seat Headrest, Little Green Cars, and The Ready Set, as well as performed to packed audiences across the Mid-Atlantic region at venues such as Black Cat, Rock & Roll Hotel, Jammin’ Java, and Arlene’s Grocery. In August 2014, the band released a self-titled LP to praise from music blogs and listeners alike. With a unique sound and captivating stage presence, The Duskwhales are prepared to make a splash in the independent music scene.
Grawlix was formed in December 2013 initially as an informal songwriting collective. After realizing the potential the songs had, the team evolved into the diverse band that delivers an eclectic array of rock music.
Oberon Rose is a Retro Rock/Psychedelic Pop outfit headed-up by Musician and Songwriter Tommy Oberon.
Based out of the Connecticut River Valley, Oberon Rose is an eclectic mix of Rock, Psych, and Pop. With influences ranging from Pink Floyd to Tom Petty to the Kinks, Oberon Rose takes the best from the past and brings it into the present.
Oberon Rose's debut album Wunjo was self-released on the band's own imprint Thou Art Records.
Produced by Tommy Oberon, Wunjo was recorded by Tommy at his home, which was in Woodstock, NY at the time. All instruments were played by Tommy, with the exception of the drums.
After relocating to the Connecticut River Valley to be more centrally located for gigging,Tommy had the good fortune of finding two gifted Musicians to help him bring the Oberon Rose sound to life.
With bandmate Mike Keyes on drums, the songs take on more depth. Pulling from his Motown influences, Mike adds a deep groove and a natural inner clock that keeps the unit tight. Couple that with Chris Listorti's lyrical bass playing and you have a rhythm section that speaks both Rock and Pop.
