Beats Antique
BeatsAntique.com
Electronic/World fusion dance trio Beats Antique brings you their new album and multi-media touring show A Thousand Faces, a journey beyond the sonic realm that’s part odyssey, part genre-warping rock opera. The album is an epic two-volume adventure that follows every stage of Joseph Campbell’s hero’s journey with sweeping and lushly textured new compositions. While the fully immersive show will carry audiences through the complete journey, A Thousand Faces – Act 1 represents just the first half of the monomyth, with the second volume due out next spring.

Holly
Holly Bowling is a classically trained pianist who began playing piano at the age of five. There’s one major distinction, however, that separates her from other similarly studied musicians. That is Holly’s devotion to the legendary rock band Phish. Holly’s breathtaking interpretations of Phish classics like “My Friend, My Friend,” “The Squirming Coil” and “Harry Hood” are paired with deeper cuts like “Talk,” “Sleep” and “The Inlaw Josie Wales.” The recordings serve not only as a tribute to the modern day kings of jam, but stand on their own as fully developed classical pieces.

Performing the music of Pink Floyd live since 2002 Relics have become known for putting their own unique twist on classic floyd songs through improvisational jamming while at the same time staying true to the live floyd sound. A different album is played in it's entirety almost every show. Every setlist is different, and almost something from every album is covered in each performance. Many times the band is accompanied by a multimedia visual light show provided by Back Alley Productions or Garbaz. With all these factors combined together Relics tries to provide the audience with the complete Pink Floyd experience and more at every show
