Here's the Line -Up!


Workman Song, Western Massachusetts "art folk rock" trio led by storytelling singer-songwriter and once-would-be preacher Sean McMahon. Impassioned vocal performances powered by full spectrum electric guitar, bass & keyboards (Marc Seedorf), and drums (Monte Arnstam) evoke the sound of Seattle, Liverpool, and Asbury Park with the undeniable stamp of the Western MA spirit, made new with a sonic and narrative voice that anthemizes love, hope, loss, faith. Three hit singles on the airwaves are spreading the Workman Song gospel to the masses: "No, It's Not," "O, To Be In Love Again," and "Rock And Roll".

Carinae is a psychedelic super nova of swirling sounds and sweet subtleties- We write music with three part harmonies, words from the heart, drippy guitar leads and driving rhythms that all combine in a psychedelic array of moods in hopes of creating a love zone we can all navigate together. We're from Western MA and hope to give and learn as much as we can. 


Bella Ortiz-Wren (just "Bella" onstage) is a non-binary artist and community organizer currently based out of southern VT, where they hop incessantly from one medium to another. They have a hard time categorizing their music, although the general vibe includes rich vocals, some distortion, and lots of reverb. You can check out their latest album, Wild Rose, online via



Old Flame  is a machine that kills fascists. Formed in the mire of the 2017 presidential election with one unshakable intention: to make their art as an active form of resistance and never cease. Born in the DIY basements, garages and fields of Western-Mass, the indie-rock band spins grit, unapologetic politics, and honey-rasp vocals into a psychedelic punk-rock nostalgia, whose edge is a howling afterglow of raw blues.


With one debut EP released, “Wolf in the Heather” (2017) and another one, “Guilt Hooks” looming on the horizon. Old Flame’s debut single, folk-rock strain “Smoke Show,” has been well-worn on the airwaves of WMUA and Valley Free Radio. As one indie-music blogger said: "Love this sound, retro and brand new all at the same time. Toes the line of vintage & psych rock. Addictively good." -Ear To The Ground Music

Old Flame is comprised of valley native Emma Ayres (Emma June), Sam Perry (Dios Trio), Ken Birchall and Nate Mondschein (The Rooks).



Mamma's Marmalade has always brought fresh vibrancy to old traditions. Since their formation in the spring of 2014, the quintet has delved into the limitless capabilities of classic bluegrass instrumentation (banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and bass) and explored the parallels of acoustic music, ranging from the blues to old-time, from gypsy jazz to bluegrass. The authenticity of their music calls listeners back to a time when wooden instruments, analogue sound and sweet vocal harmonies captivated the hearts of America. With a deep respect for tradition, and an eye towards contemporary music, Mamma's Marmalade brings an exciting new energy to the enduring narrative of American folk music.


DJ QUILS provides music for all occasions. Stacks of Vinyl featuring Funk Soul Rock Hip Hop Rocksteady Reggae Jazz Psych & more. For your listening and dancing pleasure.
