Lexi Weege And The Wondertwins is a four-piece original circus jazz/blues band with a roaring twenties feel. DishSoap is a improvisational rock band out of the Pioneer Valley. Performing both cover and originals, their sound is inspired by reggae, R&B and funk. Lush Honey is a four-piece progressive funk powerhouse hailing from Western Massachusetts. Formed in 2016, the captivating ensemble set out on a clear mission to elevate the mind and set the body in motion.

Sister Jawbone
With a nod to classic soul, gospel, rock and blues, Sister Jawbone's songs are the voice, plight and dreams of a contemporary American woman.
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 Massachusetts 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 singer’s 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).
DishSoap
DishSoap is a band based out of Northampton Massachusetts whose sound combines a potpourri of funk, rock, soul, and Reggae. With members being heavily influenced by Max Creek, Amy Winehouse, and Sublime, DishSoap incorporates structured songwriting with extended jams that create a unique experience that keeps fans coming back. Formed in 2017, DishSoap has performed throughout Western Massachusetts with Creamery Station and many other premier bands from the Pioneer Valley.
Lush Honey
Lush Honey is a 4-piece progressive funk powerhouse hailing from Western Massachusetts. Formed in 2016, the captivating ensemble set out on a clear mission to elevate the mind and set the body in motion.

Drawing from different backgrounds and an array of influences, Lush Honey combines massive riffs, deep grooves, and soaring, soulful hooks into their own brand of gooey sonic gold. Live performances, each their own unique experience, feature relentless momentum and cunning improvisations woven through tight original arrangements.

With show dates regularly throughout the Northeast and a debut full-length record due in 2018, Lush Honey has just begun to see their mission carried out - so come see what the fuss is all about!
