Lexi Weege and the Wondertwins
Lexi Weege and the Wondertwins is a blend of traditional blues roots, jazzy melodies and sassy lyrics.Born in the Pioneer Valley of MA wielding a Shure SM58 in her hand and red patent leather heels, Lexi Weege has been creating music her entire life, flirting with just about every singers role, from polka-dotted Big Band vocalist to glitter-haired, bloody-nosed rock frontwoman. Now in her twenty-second year, Lexi has refined her sound to a silky barroom jazz that tips respectful hats to the likes of Billie and Jessica (that would be Rabbit) that can swing into feisty blues numbers at the drop of said hat. Her sultry voice and sugar-brandy songs of endless summer and the cold, bittersweet winters that often follow are not to be missed.The female performing artist has long been objectified, controlled, censored, restrained. This is what Lexi Weege refuses to be. Her music is passionate, alive, awakened; the narrative of a woman unashamed of her desires and unafraid to seize control. Weege conjures up decadent scenes of the roaring twenties with her stellar voice and jazz-influenced compositions. Constantly touring, performing, and creating, Lexi Weege has released a full-length album [Virgin, 2013] and more recently, "Sweet Moon", a '7 record, both recorded live to tape. Weege's insistence on analogue recording is evidence of her passion for authenticity in her music. "With the confidence to throw her all into the circus ring of theatricality, Lexi Weege stamps the mark of a true performer" (Bluesbunny.com).

Matisyahu is a Jewish reggae and dub musician. He mixes traditional Jewish themes with modern reggae, rock and hip hop sounds.A vocalist in the improvisational-jam scene for more than a decade, Matisyahu has now formed a band that truly gives itself over to the music on par with his lyrical desire to connect to something beyond the self. Combined, the music and lyrics transcend their parts. The music now feels alive an entity unto itself, being born in the moment and evolving each night. No two performances of a song are alike. Lyrics are rearranged on the spot to serve the energy of the jam and the bands improvisation propels the music beyond anything its ever achieved previously.
