The 220's:
The 220s are an alternative/progressive rock band based out of mid-coast Maine with influences including The Beatles, Pink Floyd,
Radiohead, Rush, Yes and beyond. The group has developed a reputation for unforgettable live shows full of precise covers, tasty improvisational jams,
and fine-tuned musicianship. The 220s original music consists of a blend of 90's alternative grunge with shades of mel...odic three part harmonies and
a touch of 70's psychedelic/progressive rock. Making sure no two performances are alike, The 220s work up special treats for every show. You never
know what you'll experience next!

Cyborg Trio:
The innovative Cyborg Trio are known for their dynamic, psychedelic improvisation and carefully crafted beats. Eric Dudevoir, Sammy B and Tim
Nickerson released their fully improvised “jam” album in early 2009 and since then have been getting more exposure in both the local and
national scenes. Their tight, trance-inducing tunes are reminiscent of a DJ; you’ll have to keep reminding yourself that these guys are playing
live instruments. For their live shows they bring the crowd through a journey, offering ups and very relieving downs as the beat drops and groove
waves travel through the room, filling the venue with good vibes. Listen to the music player below and hear the depth and detail produced from live
improvisational jams.
The Cyborg Trio has shared the stage with: Jerry Garcia Band, EOTO, Conspirator, RAQ, Big Gigantic, OTT, Dave Tipper, Papadosio, Digital Tape
Machine, Marco Benevento, Orchard Lounge, The Polish Ambassador, Abakus, Archnemesis, Higher Organix, The Indobox and more.

EDUCATED ADVOCATES ;
An energized and animated hip-hop trio from the state of Maine have emerged with a style that has
been described as "new vintage". This sound is a mixture of innovative rhymes, vocal arrangements and golden era production styles. With the majority
of beats, recording, and scratches handled by the group themselves, they have formulated a trademark sound reminiscent of the classic era of hip-hop
in aspects, with a fresh perspective. The seeds for the formation of this trio were planted over 5 years ago, as each of the artist had worked
together periodically creating songs and performing live at shows. In june of 2009 during a weekend recording session, It became evident their
chemistry in the studio was something that could not be ignored. A week and a half and 8 songs later, they performed live for the first time as
educated advocates. over the following months, with an abundance of live shows under their belt, EA developed their bread and butter; a high intensity
performance which incorporates all elements of their work in the studio brought to life on stage. Late summer '09 marked the release of their self
made EP which was sold hand to hand. The project was extremely well received gaining college radio plays through out new england and opening doors of
opportunity on their path of progression. At the moment the group is preparing their next release titled "in sessions..." A collection of material
written produced and recorded during their starting stages tied together with some new elements. And with a third project near completion, as well as
solo projects from each member on the horizon, this will surely prove be a promising year for this talented group of hip-hop enthusiasts. -kurt
