Sunshine Daydream Bio:
Sunshine Daydream specializes in performing Grateful Dead and Jerry Garcia Band music in a refreshing high energy, up-tempo style. They have played through at least 150 songs in the Grateful Dead repertoire over the years. You never know what you are going to hear and the sets are designed to please the Dead heads and casual listener. The songs are performed as they are intended: high energy, hard hitting and always danceable. Expect psychedelic and innovative jams as the band navigates the Grateful Dead repertoire. The band is based in Springfield, IL and has gratefully enjoyed the support from the greater Illinois community and beyond.
The Station Bio:
In the increasingly overwhelming jam scene, a scene stuffed with too many of the same flavors, The Station delves into a different path, incorporating a deep rooted rock sound with seductive sax and precision playing. They perform thinking-mans music, a colorful concoction of diverse sounds fused together into an elaborate brew. Without fear, they deliver focused, melodiously mesmerizing forays, taking elements of the past (think Led Zeppelin and Frank Zappa) and fusing them with slivers of metal and funk. The Station is Dave Carter, drums; Jeff Cunningham, bass and vocals; Dave Littrell, vocals, guitar, and tenor sax; Michael Sullivan, guitar and vocals; and Chris Miller, keys. Where the complications arise is in a complete and definitive definition. With the Prog Rock scene already risen and fallen, the jam band scene encompassing everything from The Roots to The Grateful Dead, and EDM placing laptops at the forefront of live music, placing a finger on The Station sound is daunting: It envelops little facets of all that lies in-between. Swampy delta blues coupled with American funk, meshing with 80’s metal and a touch of Tortoise. Taken together, they envelop a wide swath of modern music, combining influences to produce a decadent sound that’s intriguing to ears of all types of listeners. “We’re really trying to infuse progressive rock and metal into the rock, dance, and funk genres” says Carter.
