    Space Carnival
    Space Carnival
    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 Tassinarion 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 setlists, 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.

    Space Carnival was conceived during a late night disco jam on a rural farm in Upstate NY. Sent into outer space for 3000 years and trained by the Great and Powerful Funkapuss, they have returned to reign down on Earth with their brand of slippery disco and interplanetary speed funk. Their only mission is to do it to your ear-hole and make you dance.
    What's Black is White
    What's Black is White
    What's Black Is White (WBIW for short) was formed by producer Nayan Lassiter and a group of New Jersey musicians from all over the musical spectrum. They're a much-needed change of pace in an industry struck by monotony. The band's name takes inspiration from the Newspeak term 'blackwhite' in George Orwell's 1984, which roughly translates to "the belief that one thing is the same as another, regardless of how different they may seem". This concept comes to life in their music, which brings elements of rock, funk, R&B and rap together seamlessly, making the word "genre" almost lose its meaning.

    The group is comprised of guitarist / backing vocalist Chris Aguayo, keyboardist / horn player Jon Schmarak, lead singer / rapper Will Williams, bassist Jack Garno, saxophonist / backing vocalist Douglas Levin, guitarist / backing vocalist Matt Funabashi and drummer KitoBovenschulte.

    A good majority of the band's music is socially and politically motivated, aiming to address issues facing the current generation while still keeping the funk alive. Be it about online dating or breaking free from conformity, the relatable lyrics and catchy grooves of WBIW's music are bound to leave you wanting more.
