Dewpoint is a four-piece jam band from Boston, Massachusetts. Establishing their current lineup in
early 2015, they have played many staple venues in the area (ie. Brighton Music Hall, The Middle East
Downstairs, The Stone Church). Their musical style spans many genres, weaving electronic funk,
progressive rock, and psychedelic grooves seamlessly under irresistibly catchy lead lines. On any night,
Dewpoint pushes songs to new limits by exploring new feels, taking improvisational risks, and
concocting set lists that allow musical themes and soaring melodies to be revisited and reimagined
throughout the course of a show. With an ever-expanding catalog of original music and noteworthy
covers, every show is a unique musical experience.

The Van Burens
The Van Burens are a family band of like-minded weirdos who love to make vital and vivid music together. The Official Band of Quincy, MA (the City of Presidents), the VBs are dedicated to the pursuit of fun, energetic shows that move folks to dance, laugh, and feel feelings. These songwriter nerds serve up reggae, funk, and rock music in the tradition of family ensembles like The Wailers, Parliament, and The Band, often with an irreverent take.
Whistlebot is a five-piece jam/funk/jazz/rock band based in Boston, MA. Inspired by groups including The Disco Biscuits, Lotus, Medeski, Martin, and Wood, Phish, TAUK, and John Scofield, Whistlebot creates original music that straddles the intersections of jazz and rock, orchestration and improvisation, brooding jams and bright grooves.
Whistlebot is:
David Warnock - Drums
Patrick Gaughan - Bass
John Diggins - Guitar
Brian Butts - Guitar
Andrew Warnock - Keys
Formed in 2015, Whistlebot's roots trace back to the town of Alfred, New York, where Pat, John, and Brian played music together as early as 2007. In the fall of 2009, John and Dave met and began collaborating while enrolled at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. After living in separate locales throughout the United States, the band's founding members all found themselves in the Greater Boston area in the summer of 2015. The quartet began writing and performing as Whistlebot later that year.
