Filtered through the waters of Alabama’s Black Warrior River, CBDB’s Joyfunk emerges from the muddy depths bringing to light a crisp, revolving blend of progressive rock, funk, jam, and fusion. phone.keys.wallet., CBDB’s debut album, was released in November 2012 and saw rapid success with hook heavy songs like Slow Foxes reaching 22K+ plays on spotify. CBDB is currently preparing to release their second album, Joyfunk is Dead, in early 2015. The facetiously titled sophomore effort takes Joyfunk down a more progressive route while still keeping its hook and groove oriented roots. CBDB has built a strong presence through steady touring of the Southeast playing headlining shows to dedicated followings in rooms like The Jupiter, Zydeco, Bourbon Street, Smiths Olde Bar, Terminal West, The Camel, Proud Larry’s and Exit/In. They have shared the stage with acts including Umphreys McGee, Earphunk, The Wailers, B.o.B., The Revivalists, Col. Bruce Hampton (Ret.), Moon Taxi, Mike Jones, Seven Handle Circus, Octopus Nebula, The Vegabonds, Space Capone among many others. “CBDB is one of the most exciting bands to come out of the Southeast in years. The buzz about the band is very reminiscent of Widespread Panic in the late 80’s. CBDB proves you don’t need computers to make great music.” -Rick Stowe, Managing Director and Partner-East Coast Entertainment

Naughty Professor

Naughty Professor is a forward thinking music endeavor pioneered by six young musicians from around the country, now anchored in New Orleans, Louisiana. Formed in 2011, the band’s mission was to embody the jazz-­influenced party culture of the Big Easy in a constantly evolving, high energy funk/soul outfit. Naughty P’s’ live performances, which weave together complex compositions and loose individual improvisation, quickly commanded the attention of many notable musicians in town, including George Porter Jr., Galactic, and The Revivalists. With fresh recorded material in the works and a rigorous tour schedule planned for 2016 and beyond, Naughty Professor is poised to soon become the next household name associated with the echelon of New Orleans music. Naughty Professor has shared the stage with artists such as Galactic, Snarky Puppy, Chali 2na, The Revivalists, Victor Wooten, Rebirth Brass Band, Fitz and the Tantrums, Jon Cleary, Kung Fu, The Motet, Papadosio, George Porter Jr., The Soul Rebels, and many more.

Disco Tendencies

Disco Tendencies are a band to watch in the Atlanta music scene. Drawing from elements of rock, funk and blues, they form an accessible sound that's just as captivating live as it is on their album. Disco Tendencies' songs work within a loosely defined, yet immediately recognizable framework, where songs are subject to a complete tonal shift at the drop of a hat. Listeners have likened the band's sound to a range of acts such as The Black Crowes, Kings of Leon and Sublime. Comparisons to these bands may be primarily born out of the vocal style of front man, Alex Rogers, whose bouncy and talented delivery helps the rock band stand out from others within its circle. Electric guitar duties are shared between Matt Payne's spot-on funky, bluesy riffs and Jeff Axelrod's precise, yet unpredictable shredding capabilities. The rhythm backbone consists of drummer, Scott Dickson, and bassist, Gil Templeton, who have over a decade of experience together--working in lockstep to lay down groovy textures and frantic crescendos alike. Disco Tendencies generally play in bars and music venues in the Atlanta area. They're known to bring a crowd with them, drawing everyone from young partygoers to local music fans with tie-dyes and grey ponytails.
