Cosmic Campout Artist Spotlights:
Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the last 10 years, you’d be amiss not to know the names Daniella Downs and Dj a.M.p. Having over 20 years of dj’ing and event throwing combined under their belt, these 2 longtime veterans of the game have joined forces with one goal in mind. Total Phunktastic Domination. Wheather it be at their legendary Symbiotic parties or their numerous dj gigs up and down the east coast – these two know how to rock parties on multiple levels, and have destroyed every dancefloor they’ve touched. Be prepared for a funky house assault.
The Mantras’ fourth studio release, Jambands Ruined My Life, is a snapshot of a band on the rise. Recorded almost a year ago, Jambands Ruined My Life captures The Mantras in the middle of their growth into the progressive powerhouse that is touring the country today. Jambands Ruined My Life shows The Mantras’ ability to play with funk and jazz improvisation, live electronica, Middle Eastern, and progressive rock and blend it all seamlessly into the band’s funky, energetic, and confident sound.
Pigeons Playing Ping Pong
Funk, Rock, Electronic ENERGY: These four Pigeons bring it every night. Based out of Baltimore, MD, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong has an undeniably unique and versatile live sound that ascends peaks of musical ecstasy. Their evolving arrangement of original compositions, psychedelic improvisational jams, and contagious smiles have ‘The Flock’ growing and coming back for more. With no end in sight, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong is here to bring the party with their danceable electro-funk grooves and infectious ability to bring positive energy to any environment.
