Spring Heeled Jack
Spring Heeled Jack
Spring Heeled Jack (known alternatively for a time as Spring Heeled Jack U.S.A.) is a third wave ska band based out of New Haven, Connecticut. The band was formed by guitarist/vocalist Ron Ragona and drummer Dave Karcich in 1991. After a short breakup, Ragona and Karcich reformed the band with a new lineup. This lineup went on to record two albums before announcing a hiatus in 2000. While the band members moved on to perform in several new bands, their intention was to play the occasional reunion show. This plan would never come to fruition as a cerebral aneurysm would be cause for Karcich's death in 2002. In 2015, several band members returned to reform the band full-time. A third studio album, Sound Salvation, followed in 2017.
Sgt. Scagnetti
Sgt. Scagnetti
Sgt. Scag (aka Sgt. Scagnetti) was a fixture on the Northeast ska/punk scene in the late 1990’s. Migrating from a ska-pop outfit into a harder more frantic sound, the band’s live shows were unpredictable and fun. Songs about dysfunctional parenting, revenge fantasies and drug abuse developed into teen center anthems. After an 18 year break (with a reunion show or two thrown in along the way) the band is back. Not a reunion show, but actively writing and recording new material about the drug of nostalgia, illegal firework salesmen and trust fund baby bands. They will play the old stuff too. Don’t worry.
Nova Cloud
indie progressive band Nova Cloud emerges from just outside NYC in July 2017. With their debut album "Explore Your Mind," in order to encourage the contemplation of existence, emotion and purpose through a psychedelic lens. Within a eight-song concept album, they include elements of rock, reggae, jazz and metal accompanied by philosophical and sentimental lyrics that encourage its listeners to analyze the capability of their consciousness, and investigate their purpose in the universe.
