Mad Alchemy is an analog liquid light show in the great San Francisco tradition of Bill Hamm, Glen Mckay and Brotherhood of Light from the heyday of the Bay’s psychedelic ballrooms. Principal Lance Gordon has been involved with this art form since 1971 and learned the essence of liquid projections from a former member of the Brotherhood of Light at 17. With a team of 3 to 4 people, Mad Alchemy typically blends 6 to 9 projections (all overhead), together creating a dramatic montage of color always moving and changing

Having recently been named one of the Top 5 Best Up-and-Coming Bay area bands of 2014 by CBS and most recently one of 5 bands to watch in 2015 by Relix magazine, Lee Gallagher and the Hallelujah have clearly made a mark in their short time together since forming in mid-2013.

Based in San Francisco but comprised of Midwestern and Southern transplants with a devotion to honest roots based American music, they weave a sonic tapestry framed by wailing guitars, churning organ, and more than a slight nod to the southern gospel music of their past. The band has garnered buzz for their live shows which transform traditional music venues into sweaty, hip-shaking, psychedelic tent revivals.

Based out of Burlington, NC, JuJuGuru is a power duo like no other before them. They create a sound as if they were a 4 piece band.Forming in 2010, they have toured from Ohio to Alabama and have opened for many acts such as: Eric Gales, Moon Taxi, Lightnin’ Malcom & Cameron Kimbrough, Big Something, and have performed at many music festivals.Their soulful sound yearns to bring back an era when rock was neither too hard or too soft, but raw and full of foot stomping energy.
