Tearing out of Buffalo, New York, rock-groove powerhouse Aqueous built a name for itself nationally, following years of touring and high profile sets at festivals like Summer Camp, Peach Festival, moe.down, Catskill Chill, The Frendly Gathering and countless others. Aqueous has a reputation for bringing high energy and tireless effort to its craft, and fans rave about the uniqueness and power behind every performance. Featured as one of Relix Magazine’s On The Verge artists, there seems no limit to the quartet’s journey to the top.
With three studio albums under its belt and a critically-acclaimed live collection “Live Nugs,” Aqueous is as strong in composing as it is at communicating and improvising during shows. Its onstage persona is infectious and undeniable: The band member’s lifelong friendship stands as a testament to the tightness of the music. While the band is relatively young, the musicians are polished.
A six-piece powerhouse with a sound that is unique and timeless, BIG Something fuses elements of rock, pop, funk and improvisation to take listeners on a journey of musical styles. It’s no secret why this group has quickly become one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the Southeast. Guitars, synthesizer, horns and alluring vocal hooks rise to the top of an infectious collection of songs and represent a sound that has caught the ears of such revered summer circuit stalwarts as Big Galactic, Robert Randolph and even The B-52s who have all tapped BIG Something as direct support.
The group recently released its third studio album, “Truth Serum,” with the help of Grammy-nominated producer John Custer. Recorded almost entirely live in the studio, “Truth Serum” is a great snapshot of the magic the band is capable of creating on stage. The album, which also features an appearance from DJ Logic, was named 2014 Album of the Year by The Homegrown Music Network, which makes BIG Something the only band ever to win this award three times with three different releases.
Mountainfilm On Tour brings 10 documentary shorts, focusing on equity, to two local high schools and two local movie theaters. “Brotherhood Of Skiing,” for example, is about African Americans who love skiing and want to pass that love to the next generation.
