Peter Prince and the Trama Unit is a cosmic rock band with an agile sound. Prince's vocal presence, a well-honed match of razor-like grit and sultry confidence, is met on all corners with snarling guitars, pious organ swells, and a thunderous stomp. Along with Prince, New England's best players are in the band: Johnny Trama on guitar, Tom Arey on drums, Nate Wilson on keys, and Tommy Lada on bass. These guys are all highly respected for their technical prowess, but their true utility comes through in their individuality. Each pulls from tens of thousands of gigssoul/funk on some nights, dub on others, classic arena rock, jazz, blues, and anything else you can scrape together as long as it sounds damn good  and it does. With Prince and the Trama Unit at the helm, echoes of the Black Crowes, Deep Purple, and even Al Green are welcomed and thoughtfully molded, but the songs have a will of their own, coated with fresh focus and courted with skillful abandon.

The Curtis Mayflower is Pete Aleksi, Duncan Arsenault, Jeremy Moses Curtis, Brooks Milgate and Craig Rawding. Five musicians creating a sound that is greater than the sum of its parts. Players who have toured, recorded with acts such as Booker T. Jones, Levon Helm, Howie Day, Heavy Metal Horns, Jim Carroll, Orchestra Morphine, Twinemen just to name a few.The

Formed in 2013, they have quickly amassed a large body of work and a larger audience for it. Hot on the heels of their self released EP "Live At The Dive (2013)" which showcased the band's ability to write powerful music on the spot, the debut album "Everything Beautiful Is Under Attack (2014)" was welcomed by many critics as a refreshing take on the blues, soul and rock genres. The Curtis Mayflower currently has their third album written and has released two singles thus far: "King of the Fools (2015)" which The Boston Herald says:  "inverts the hot, fast pleading of the Temps Motown might with a chill, slow groove. Go if you wanna go, I ain't begging. I'll just sit here with my Donny Hathaway records and stand firm." and "Fourth Wall (2015)" which The Worcester Telegram says: "On a very fundamental level, this is a song about our relationship with art, particularly music. In a lot of ways, Rawding's voice is a comforting presence: Music's there to keep you from feeling alone."
