THE GHOSTS OF JUPITER
"When the whole band collaborated on the riff at the center of 'Trampled on Daisies,' I found myself wondering about the building's structural integrity. "
Cara Giaimo (Ryan's Smashing Life)
Ghosts of Jupiter are always On the March, as the last track of their 2013 EP, Green is Gold Vol. I, suggests. There's heft to this Boston-based quintet, who draw inspiration from the muscular, freewheeling hard rock of the 60s/70s and meld it to the serious crush of contemporaries like The Raconteurs, The Black Keys, and Rival Sons. While many have used Cream, Hendrix and their gifted peers as a springboard, Ghosts of Jupiter create music that's alive in a way that echoes the vibrancy of their ancestors.
THE VAN BURENS
Dedicated to life, liberty and the pursuit of funkiness, The Van Burens turn American history into a high energy dance party on their infectious 2014 EP Presidential Lovefest. One of the busiest bands in the Boston area since their '08 founding, these five guys from Quincy, MA the City of Presidents infuse their joyfully schizophrenic mix of rock, funk, prog, and reggae with a seriously ironic, tongue-in-cheek twist on pop culture. The Van Burens Jeff "Pinky" King (keys), Emmett "McGee" Knox (bass), Greg "Smitty" Smith (guitar) and brothers Greg "Spitzy" Spitz (guitar) and Matt "Papa Bear" Spitz (drums) swap lead vocals and group harmonies over eclectic, exciting songs ripe with danceable grooves, stellar musicianship, clever songwriting, and a singular sense of humor.

Put on their self-titled debut to hear a band who believes in rock's power to explore and rejuvenate; a colorful, tough and tight ride into the outer reaches of the mind. The Boston-bred rock quintet partnered with the Museum of Science to create a new, eye-popping music entertainment show in the museum's Charles Hayden Planetarium. Running each weekend throughout the end of 2013, "Ghosts of Jupiter: Music Experience" takes you on a fantastic ride into the outer reaches of the mind.
And now with their recent EP fresh out of the studio and more tracks in the works, Ghosts of Jupiter continue stretching their songs and imagination while their overall approach bears a closer resemblance to Zeppelin powerful, gripping and capable of surprises at every turn. Nate Wilson (lead vocals, keyboards), Johnny Trama (guitar), Adam Terrell (guitar), Tommy Lada (bass), and Thomas Arey (drums) combine grit and high-end musicianship for a refreshing and unique take on the rock and roll that made the legends.
Ghosts of Jupiter have already shared the stage with Blue Oyster Cult, moe., Buffalo Killers and Dead Meadow, and the journey has just begun as they look towards the release of more cosmic music and many mind-blowing shows to come.
