The Last Rewind is the latest project of an all-star conglomerate of DC-area musicians. Brian Zupruk (Moogatu, Eat Yer Meat), Jason Skeen (Covered with Jam), Brian Dodds, and Dave Salvo (Buddha Cons, The Beirds) formed The Last Rewind in summer 2014. The reason was simple: people in the DC area like Phish and the DC area lacked a Phish tribute band. Too easy.

The members of The Last Rewind have played festivals including Lock'n, graced stages across the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic, and have shared bills with Phish (actual Phish), moe., Lettuce, Electron, Kung Fu, Dopapod, Tauk and Blues Traveler.

Since it’s inception in late 2012, Washington DC-based band AZTEC SUN has hypnotized the ears and feet of the District’s live music aficionados. No matter the scale of the venue, this ensemble maintains an upbeat and retro groove steeped in 70's Funk and Soul, Jazz, Afro-funk and Motown-era pop. Their infectious songwriting and energetic live performances have yielded rewards for the group - such as being named Best Local Original Band by the Washington City Paper and sharing the stage with international and national touring acts such as two-time Grammy Award winning keyboardist Shaun Martin (from Snarky Puppy), Burning Spear, The Suffers, Pimps of Joytime, Naughty Professor, Alanna Royale, and Major and the Monbacks. 

AZTEC SUN marked the end of a fantastic 2016 year with the release of their debut studio EP, Set You Free. The self-produced and live-tracked project is both a preview of a full-length album planned for 2018 and an example of the band’s incessant desire to challenge its own rhythmic and melodic versatility. With an EP under their belt, an ever-growing fan base and a passion for spreading feel-good music, AZTEC SUN will seek new audiences to entertain and opportunities to push their brand of “Funk with Soul” in the new year.

Mountain Ride was forged in the Great Valley of south-central Pennsylvania, for the simple need to play bluegrass.  For these five friends, bluegrass is a necessity.  Hailing from the new generation of bluegrassers, they tend to bring a unique flair to the traditional, and a progressive twist to the original. Mountain Ride is composed of Eric Avey (guitar and vocals), Scott Matlock (fiddle and vocals), Corey Woodcock (banjo), Chance Hurley (mandolin), and Kate Avey (bass and vocals). With years of experience under their straps and strings, they have found something new, something that can only be described as Mountain Ride.  


Josh Morning Star:

Josh is an amazing talent both as a songwriter and entertainer.  He has written songs especially for certain people and has recorded three Albums with the latest one “Wholelottacrazy” releasing in early fall 2017.  So it is easy to say that Josh is an accomplished songwriter.


As an Entertainer he has been touring across this country for about six (6) years now alongside folks like Shooter Jennings, the Legend Billy Don Burns, and others like Jamey, and Cody and Whitey.  Actually the list is too large and not enough time here to discuss it.  The important thing is Josh has a way to connect with his fans old and new alike.  When on stage and you are in the audience if you’re not a fan, I promise you will be by the end of his signature ending of “I Saw the Light” the old Hank Williams Classic. 

So let’s just say that Josh has paid his dues, traveling in beat up vans and cars across this nation honing his craft and talent.  If you see a notice that Josh Morningstar is coming to your area.  Please check him out, everyone is a fan, some he just hasn’t got to yet.
