Out of the Beardspace
Out of the Beardspace
In a psychedelic explosion of sound and color, Out of the Beardspace expresses its wide range of emotions. Sections of improvisation flow seamlessly in and out of compositions which fuse jazz, pop, funk, rock, and more into a Beardly Beast that will certainly move you.

Having met as teenagers at the School of Rock, members of Beardspace have been making music together in some form or another for many years. As School of Rock students, they had the opportunity to tour in the US and Europe, perform with Rock Stars like Jon Anderson (Yes) and Perry Farrell (Janes Addiction), and play at music festivals like Lollapalooza in Chicago and Zappanale in Germany.

Upon graduation, different musical projects emerged which eventually converged into one: Out of the Beardspace. Since their formation in 2011, Beardspace has made a name for themselves by sharing their unique sound with audiences up and down the East Coast. They have appeared at countless venues and festivals sharing bills with bands like Moon Hooch, Lettuce, Consider the Source, Eoto, and more. They are also becoming a pillar of the DIY festival scene with their own festival Beardfest.

In a world where entertainment is too often reduced to a passive spectator/performer relationship; and where social interactions are too often reduced to quick moments of stolen time; and appreciation of nature is too often kicked aside for the pride of progress; Beardfest attempts to be a breath of fresh air. Lovers of music, art, nature, and knowledge look forward to an all-encompassing event every year.
Kinyon Lanier and his Funky Brethren
My Funky Brethren is a funk/soul band from Philadelphia, PA. Our goal is to get our music out to the world.
Darla
Darla
Darla is an 8-piece progressive funk group from Philadelphia. Self-described ‘basement blender funk,’ the band’s sound is a melding of its raw origin in the Philly basement scene and keen compositional focus on feeling the groove. At its core, the Darla sound is driven by a powerful horn section that wields a lyrical and catchy sense of phrasing. Their efforts are matched by a jarring and methodical rhythm section that has been described as ‘Steely Dan with Dave Grohl on drums.'


Since forming in 2014, Darla has shared the stage with the likes of Snarky Puppy, George Clinton & Parliament Funkadelic, George Porter Jr. (of The Meters), Kamasi Washington, and Cory Henry and the Funk Apostles. They have released five EPs to date, including their most recent effort Darla Comes Alive Vol. 2, and plan to release a sixth before the year is out. Darla is ready to share their funk across the eastern seaboard with shows & festival appearances lined up for the rest of 2016.
