Teddy Midnight has quickly proven themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the northeast, soon to be spreading across the United States and then the world! In their own words, they are a “Brooklyn based Jazz, Jam and Electronic band that will make you booty shake and shoegaze at the same damn time!” With the recent addition of guitarist Wiley Griffin, who has wowed fans with his chops at festivals across the Northeast, such as Catskill Chill and Farm Fest, Teddy has found itself on the precipice of an amazing surge of momentum. The other skilled members; Adam Magnan on drums and sampler, Sean McAuley on keys/percussion and vocals, and Sean Silva on bass and synth-bass have came together to form an extremely well-rounded band that brings a cutting edge approach to electronic infused jazz, jams, and melodic rock. Keep your eye on these guys as their name gets bigger and bigger on festival lineups.

“Animal Reporters are a rock n’ roll band from NYC pumping out funky, blues-soaked tunes for your ear holes. With hits like “Mailman,” and “Little Mama,” Animal Reporters offer the soul of a drifting cowboy with the funk of a 70’s Warhol happening. Dave Gelb fronts the band with an incomparable indie charm along with Johnny Marx dazzling on the keys, smiling the entire time. The Van Deusen brothers, Colin on bass and Chris on guitar, complete the doo-wop swag of the group, but often the eyes are drawn to the back line where drummer Eric Sands adds flare-laden fills to the driving beat.”
