Wild Woods Pre Party w/ The Edd & Shantyman
Friday, July 20, 2018
The Edd is a group of four musicians based out of Burlington, VT. Over the past four years they been bringing some of the most unique “electronic space rock” to the Northeast, sharing the stage with acts such as Papadosio, Dopapod, and Consider the Source.
Their music is a combination of highly improvised sections, exploration of sound and extremely tight, often complexly structured, original songs. In crafting their music, they demonstrate mastery of unusual sounds, scales and time signatures giving them a distinct sound in the “jamband” scene. The result is nothing short of spectacular weird music that captures and moves audiences of all preferences. Live Shows are always high energy, a guaranteed good time and the best way to truly experience The Edd!
Shantyman is a super-funk quartet hailing from the hills of Massachusetts and have landed in the mountains of Boulder, CO. They tastefully blend various genres from Funky Reggae to Soul and bad ass Rock n’ Roll. The beat is held down by an insanely hard hitting drummer/lead singer resembling much of Levon Helm and John Bonham. Funky slap-style bass lines and a Garcia-esque guitar player provide groovin’ melodies for music enthusiasts of all ages to enjoy. Constantly playing impromptu style set lists, Shantyman is a tidal wave of peaking riffs, crashing into a funk filled sea of pure joy and excitement.
