Pimps of Joytime
Pimps of Joytime
When it comes to throwing a party, the Pimps of Joytime raise the bar with swagger to spare. Rhythms and
textures drawn from New Orleans funk, 90s club house, 60s salsa and hip­hop all collide and fracture upon
one another on their new LP, Jukestone Paradise. Dubbed "raucous and captivating" by Okayplayer, their
album cuts play like the soundtrack for a ride through Brooklyn’s diverse neighborhoods, where the group's
sound materialized.

And the Pimps' live experience only takes it higher.

Over the past decade, the group's grassroots following mobilized from the underground club scene in New
York to sell out historic venues like the Fillmore in San Francisco and earn top billings at music festivals
across the US and Europe. Quite simply, the Pimps' dancefloor is magnetic. But word spreads to the wise
when you pair high­caliber musicianship with melodies and beats that are as universally enticing as they are
unconventional.

The Pimps of Joytime's first album High Steppin' caught NPR off guard when it dropped in 2007, as its
editors raved, "It has it all: soul, funk, punk, afrobeat, rap. I've not heard anything quite like it." The group's
2011 release Janxta Funk! extended their movement even further into the mainstream circuit, with the title
track seeing more than 1 million plays on Spotify to date.

Guitarist and singer Brian J is the mastermind behind the Pimps' evolving mosaic of mixes and remixes,
producing all of the bands' records as well as other solo records for New Orleans legend Cyril Neville and
Corey Henry of Galactic. His genius is only elevated by bassist David Bailias, who doubles as DJ, subtly
weaving EDM club beats and synth keys throughout the Pimps live show. Over top comes drummer John
Staten's funky break beats, which land in sync with the live percussion and siren­like vocals of Mayteanna
Morales and Kim Dawson.

You might accurately call the them a ‘post­genre’ band; a group whose sound—even within a single
song—mirrors the diversity of our generation’s musical tastes. It all goes into the Pimps’ soulful roux, built on
a foundation of rhythm and groove.
Out of the Beardspace
Out of the Beardspace
In a psychedelic explosion of sound and color, Out of the Beardspace expresses its wide range of emotions. Sections of improvisation flow seamlessly in and out of compositions which fuse jazz, pop, funk, rock, and more into a Beardly Beast that will certainly move you.

Having met as teenagers at the School of Rock, members of Beardspace have been making music together in some form or another for many years. As School of Rock students, they had the opportunity to tour in the US and Europe, perform with Rock Stars like Jon Anderson (Yes) and Perry Farrell (Janes Addiction), and play at music festivals like Lollapalooza in Chicago and Zappanale in Germany.

Upon graduation, different musical projects emerged which eventually converged into one: Out of the Beardspace. Since their formation in 2011, Beardspace has made a name for themselves by sharing their unique sound with audiences up and down the East Coast. They have appeared at countless venues and festivals sharing bills with bands like Moon Hooch, Lettuce, Consider the Source, Eoto, and more. They are also becoming a pillar of the DIY festival scene with their own festival Beardfest.

In a world where entertainment is too often reduced to a passive spectator/performer relationship; and where social interactions are too often reduced to quick moments of stolen time; and appreciation of nature is too often kicked aside for the pride of progress; Beardfest attempts to be a breath of fresh air. Lovers of music, art, nature, and knowledge look forward to an all-encompassing event every year.
