Consisting of four friends from the Washington D.C area, Bluewreck started out just like any other band would. By getting together in a hot basement and playing, revamping, and making some of their favorite songs sound even heavier. Soon afterward, they all felt a natural chemistry between the four of them, who had been playing in different bands since they met in high school, but never together. They soon began writing, and eventually recording their first EP, which would be released in March of 2018. Following this release, they played some of D.C’s best venues. Including Union Stage, Jammin Java, and Tally Ho Theatre in Leesburg. During this time, they continued writing for what would eventually become their first album, Out Of Control. Out Of Control was released on all streaming platforms in August of 2018. Following a headlining show at Rock And Roll Hotel and DC9, Bluewreck released a single, titled Coming Down in March of 2019. In March, they were added as direct support for People’s Blues Of Richmond, and just recently landed opened slots for King Buffalo, Jessy Wilson, and Paris_Monster. Above all else, Bluewreck aims to provide a good time at their live shows. They aim to get down, get loud, and make some sonic witchcraft along the way.
Originating from their hometown of Ocean City, Maryland, The Swell Fellas elicit an uncanny psych rock sound built beside the murky oceans of our mother nature. Invoking both the dark vibes of the 90’s era they were born in and the psychedelic nature of the early British Invasion, these surfed out east coasters keep their feet wet with the music of the past all while transcending the sounds of the future. Gearing up for the release of their debut full length, The Big Grand Entrance, The Swell Fellas are beginning to tour until death do they part. Growing out of their homemade backyard studio in Berlin, MD, playing countless shows along the eastern seaboard, and working with mixing/production mastermind Ben McLeod of All Them Witches has given the band great inspiration to formulate their own take on psychedelic rock music. So, sit back, light one up and get ready for tripped out absolution from a band whose so-called “big grand entrance” is only a harbinger of what is to come.
