The Movement
Hailing from Columbia, South Carolina, the reggae-rock group The Movement was formed in 2004 by a trio of Sublime and Pixies fans. Joshua Swain, Jordan Miller, and John Ruff, aka DJ Riggles, launched The Movement with their "alternative reggae" debut album, "On Your Feet." In 2008, the group met Chris DiBeneditto, a Philadelphia-based producer who had worked with like-minded acts such as Slightly Stoopid and G. Love & Special Sauce. Relocating to Philadelphia, they recorded 2008's "Set Sail" at DiBeneditto’s Philadelphonic Studios. The album has sold over 10,000 copies to date. The Movement expanded with the addition of Gary Jackson on drums and Jason "Smiles" Schmidt on bass. In 2012, Miller left the group, and the trio, now fronted by Swain, released their fourth album "Side By Side," debuting at #2 on the Billboard Reggae Chart. In early 2014, DJ-producer Alific joined the band, returning scratching and samples to The Movement's live show.
Proverbial - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
For fans of: Sublime, The Roots, The Police

Drawing from a diverse musical palette of funk, rock, reggae, and hip-hop, Proverbial seamlessly intertwines their music with heart-felt vocal harmonies and powerful lead vocals. Recognized for their amazing live performances, Proverbial rocks the crowds with their HIGH energy, no limits take on sonic audio expression.

Proverbial has a roster of successes under their belt, with their direct supporting slots with Sublime w/ Rome, Tribal Seeds, FLOBOTS, Ballyhoo!, and Crash Kings just to name a few. This led to a very active 2013, playing 100+ shows and a performance at the Jersey Shore Music Festival alongside Aer and Papadosio. They were named “Band on the Verge” in Relix magazine and were also chosen to co-headline at the Bud Light Reggae Fest in Mount Snow, VT!

Proverbial hit the studio in late Fall 2013 to record a new full-length album titled “Pick up the Pieces.” The album was mixed and mastered at The Rhythm Shack in Richmond, VA with engineer Eric “Spade” Haynes [Busta Rhymes, Wiz Khalifa, Chris Brown.] “Positive energy and vibes is still our central message from the first album to this second release,” said member Thomas Whitesell, (saxophone/vocals). “The moral compass of our songs always points in the same direction of positivity and perseverance no matter what life brings your way.”

Gathering momentum from their sophomore offering, Pick up the Pieces, the group’s boundless potential has certainly been noted and will only continue to unfold as they travel the country sowing their musical oats.

Keep your eyes and ears open as they continue to spread the PROVERBIAL sound...And be prepared to dance your ass off!
Kings Of Belmont - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Kings Of Belmont
The Kings of Belmont are disciples of Rock and Roll. Their performances and recordings conjure prophetic passion and graceful honesty. They command every stage and captivate every audience with an unmistakably genuine and brilliant style of music. Every performance is distinctive. Just when you think they can’t possibly rock any harder, they take it to another level, leaving mouths agape, and fakers eating dust. Based out of Charlottesville, Va, The KOB is a five-piece featuring a commanding rhythm section, screaming guitars, wailing keys, and crisp vocal harmonies. They’ve been “meltin’ faces on a regular basis” since 2006. Thanks to some recent groundbreaking festival performances, the KOB have been touring relentlessly and developing an increasingly solid and loyal fan base along the way. They are not just another rock band. They are not a ‘jam band’. They are not a cover-band. They are The Kings of Belmont. And they are coming to a town near you… Don’t sleep.
