|The Q-Tip Bandits|
“No, they’re not a Q-tip wielding gang enforcing personal hygiene. This Boston-based five-piece are an indie-rock/pop outfit with some of the sweetest tones that side of the Atlantic.” – The Courier, Newcastle, UK

Since their inception in early 2018, The Q-Tip Bandits have emerged into the Boston music scene as an energetic and vibrant act that continues to touch audience’s hearts while getting them up on their feet. Their smooth yet powerful sound is backed by the raw energy of rock and the coolness and colors of R&B and funk — with palpable grooves coated with savory, soul-inspired riffs, anthemic horns and meaningful lyrics.

The Q-Tip Bandits hit the road in 2022, traversing the country over the course of seven weeks, ending with a sold-out hometown show in Boston to celebrate the release of their debut LP, Melancholy Flowers. After another shorter run in the fall, the band garnered four nominations at the Boston Music Awards, for Live Act and Pop Act of the Year, Song of the Year for “Daisy,” and Album of the Year.

|Midnight Breakfast|
Midnight Breakfast is an indie-soul sextet from Maine. Since forming during their sophomore year of college in 2019, the band has become a household name. Initially covering standards and funk tunes, the unit recorded its self-titled debut album Midnight Breakfast during quarantine and released it in January 2021. A showcase of instrumental improvisation and explorative long jams, Midnight Breakfast weaves together groovy melodies with blissfully jazz-kissed vocals while exploring themes of love, self-discovery, and the universal search for meaning.
