Desmond Jones is a five-piece funk/rock/jazz fusion band from Grand Rapids, Michigan. With original music written to compliment the group's sound as a whole, the music is centered around melodic guitar riffs, smooth bass lines, funky drum beats, and tasteful saxophone.
Since 2012 this unique group has played with groups like The Werks, Dopapod, Kung Fu, Marco Benevento, Tauk, The Verve Pipe, Badfish, Here Come the Mummies, The Main Squeeze and many more. The group takes influence from Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead, Phish, Charles Mingus, The Band, and Led Zeppelin to name a few.
Desmond Jones puts on exciting and high energy shows and is proud to say that each set list and each song is different from show to show.
Space Carnival blends high-energy disco, funk, and progressive rock into an interplanetary performance. Formed in Spring 2013, Space Carnival consists of Jeremy Kraus on Guitar, Cameron Fitch on Keys and Vocals, Chris Meier on Bass, and Nick Tassinari on drums. The quartet began honing their live sound when they launched into the Oneonta music scene in Fall of 2013. Space Carnival keeps a consistent, fun, and fresh energy by rotating set lists, adding covers and confidently debuting original material. This four-piece is sure to have you dancing with their form of loose funk and relentless slippery disco.
