    Kwame Binea Shakedown

    Kwame Binea was born in West London with native origins in Ghana. He is a self-proclaimed rocker to the core, but he has peppered his own brand of “Roots Rock,” which embodies his fertile and culturally diverse personal saga.

    “Mix Rock and Roll with Silky Soul, screaming blues with folk and you get Kwame Binea,” says The Apollo Theater. “My music is organic,” says Kwame,” it embodies life, love, and struggles. I’m driven by my mantra of Peace, Love, & Positivity, so that propels and drives the messages for most of my lyrical content. It’s also party music and danceable, so if our music moves you and makes you move, that’s a great night.” His 2017 album was produced by Vernon Reid.

    Bonerama

    Formed in New Orleans in 1998, by trombone players Mark Mullins and Craig Klein (who from 1990 -2006, were also members of Harry Connick Jr.’s big band), Bonerama bills itself as a brass/funk/rock band but Bonerama is much more than that. Bonerama is a New Orleans musical institution. They are one of the most genuine, unique and interesting bands to have ever come out of the Crescent City. Bonerama incorporates jazz, brass, funk, fusion, soul, pop, rock, blues, a touch of alternative and even a bit of reggae into its one-of-a-kind sound. Three trombones front the band, plus a sousaphone, guitar and drums all delivering a powerful sound that you have to hear to believe.

    Known the world over for its incendiary live performances, Bonerama has been bringing its specialized brand of New Orleans music to the masses for 20 years. Bonerama is currently comprised of Mullins (trombone, electric trombone and lead vocals), Klein (trombone and lead vocals), Greg Hicks (trombone and vocals), Bert Cotton (guitar), Matt Perrine (sousaphone and electric bass) and Walt Lundy (drums).

    HALEY REINHART
    with special guest TYLER HILTON

    With her beguiling vocals and powerful delivery, Haley Reinhart brings both raw passion and soulful sincerity to all her musical output. A 27-year-old singer/songwriter with timeless sensibilities, she began honing her formidable vocal chops by singing with her parents’ band at age seven.

    Reinhart has released 3 albums including 2 songs on Jeff Goldblum’s #1 critically acclaimed Jazz record including “My Baby Just Cares for Me” and great stand- out press from NME, Rolling Stone, BBC and more. Her 4th record Lo-fi Soul is out in March and promises to be her most intimate, soulful and heartfelt record to date, co-writing and co-producing the entire work.

    Haley states “LO-FI reflects my analog heart while the SOUL reveals untold stories I want you all to experience with me! I’ve been told I’m an old soul my whole life and I feel like I’ve lived many… You’ll find me floating through time with different genres and eras in my mind that taste all too familiar, like a fine red wine. Classic Hollywood glamour meets an eternal free spirit, these songs will take you for a spin on my very own gritty carousel and leave you with a lusty hangover, only to come back wanting more.”

    Hi-Tide presents Messer Chups (Russia)

    plus Black Flamingos

    Doors Time: 7:30pm
    Show Time: 9:00pm

    Hi-Tide Recordings presents the return of Messer Chups – from Russia with love – to Asbury Park on their annual Halloween tour! Special guests Black Flamingos open the show with DJ Devil Bat spinning creepy cuts on vinyl between sets!

    While Messer Chups‘ mostly instrumental sound is hard to neatly categorize, it’s safe to say that it would be embraced by fans of rockabilly, horror punk, vintage surf records, Italian slasher films, My Life with the Thrill Kill Kult, Pulp Fiction, lounge music, the theremin, The Cramps, and the theme song from The Munsters. Their catchy music combines surf, vintage Russian melodies, rare film samples from the 50s and 60s, scratchy historical recordings, and lounge loops. Live, they explode with garage-punk intensity, all played against a video-collage backdrop of mid-century trashy cult and horror movie clips featuring Russ Meyer and Ed Wood, and superstars like Vampira and Bela Lugosi in a zombie mash-up.

    Black Flamingos are an instrumental trio from Asbury Park, NJ – featuring Robbie Butkowski on guitar, Declan O’Connell on bass, and Hi-Tide Recordings founder Vincent Minervino on drums. The band has toured the US and Europe supporting Dick DaleThe VenturesLos StraitjacketsThe 5.6.7.8’s & more, with festival appearances at The HukilauSurf Guitar 101 ConventionSurfer Joe Summer FestivalThe Rhythm Collision Asbury Park Surf Music Festival. The band was also featured by the iconic Norman’s Rare Guitars in Los Angeles.

    MYSTERY SKULLS
    with Phangs and SnowBlood

    Mystery Skulls is an electronic dance-oriented neo-soul and vintage disco-influenced outfit centered around lead singer/songwriter Luis Dubuc. Dubuc was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela until he was eight, when his family moved to Toronto, where he fell in love with dance music as well as hip-hop and metal.

    After moving to Dallas, he played drums for the metal band Thirty Called Arson and formed the electronic pop project The Secret Handshake, whose 2009 album, My Name Up in Lights, reached No. 7 on Billboard’s Heatseekers chart.

    In 2011, Dubuc ended The Secret Handshake to focus on the more dance-oriented Mystery Skulls, which took its name from an episode of the Nickelodeon series Are You Afraid of the Dark? That year, Dubuc moved to Los Angeles and released Mystery Skulls’ self-titled debut EP, which featured the single “Amazing,” after which he signed to Warner Bros. in 2013 and collaborated with Chic’s Nile Rodgers on the project’s debut album, Forever, which was released in 2014.

    Dubuc returned in 2017 with the single “Music,” the first taste from his sophomore full-length, One of Us.

    HIRIE 

    with RDGLDGRN, Kash’d Out

    Hirie — the frontwoman of the exhilarating reggae band HIRIE — grew up a global citizen. Her father worked for the United Nations and she was born in the Philippines, spent years in Italy, before her family settled in Hawaii, which became her spiritual home.

    San Diego’s seven-piece band HIRIE is ready to offer a global spiritual uplift. Melding the balmy island touches of its singer’s beloved home — as symbolized by its moniker’s first letter, a “H” for “Hawaii,” with that feeling of irie , the award-winning group offers a soundtrack of hope. Now, with its masterful most recent album, Wandering Soul , brimming with invigorating female-fronted shamanistic reggae an oasis of positivity is just an album away.

    Wandering Soul’s lush construct reflects this depth. The songs feature chord sequences that have a sophisticated, tension and release accessibility. The musicianship is high-level restraint, showcasing that point of mature virtuosity where laying back implies instrumental prowess. The album’s trippy production — the bulk of it courtesy of Danny Kalb (Beck, Ben Harper, Sia) — replete with adventurous textured passages, heady dub segues, and subtle psychedelic flourishes, make it a rare headphone experience for a pop oriented record.

    The album opens with the smoldering and ambitious title track — a sonic journey through heartfelt longing, and heady dub passages. The militant “Renegade” features Nahko Bear of Nahko and Medicine For The People and boasts stately horns, simmering grooves, and call-to-arms individuality against the massification of culture. The personal “Melody of a Broken Heart” and “You Won’t Be Alone” shine a light on personal domestic struggles. “I wrote ‘You Won’t Be Alone’ for my daughter with the hopes that she understands my life when she hears me on the radio. I hope she understands how much I love her and how I can be a role model by showing her she can be anything she wants,” Hirie confides. The sleek futuristic electronic textures of “Boom Fire” represents HIRIE’s party vibe and exudes vivaciousness of in the moment HIRIE living.

    Hirie is currently working on her third full length album due out in 2019.

    Reflecting on the power of HIRIE, Hirie shares this story: “I met a fan who was suffering from six tumors. He shared with me ‘Your music is the reason I get out of bed, you’re my medicine.’ That drives me to push this movement forward to share conscious music. I feel a responsibility and a duty to share a positive message.”

    Magic Bean/Mungion

    Magic Beans have steadily built upon their national notoriety in a short period of time with a distinguishable sound that is uniquely their own. Hailing from Denver, the band’s combo of funk/soul/rock has quickly set themselves apart from the pack as one of the state’s premier acts. The Beans made their Red Rocks debut in April of 2019, prior to releasing their new album, Off Leash, on June 21st, 2019. The new album, “Off Leash”, is a testament to the group shedding the restraints of genre based music in favor of embracing different elements found across the musical realm. It was also an exercise in pushing the band’s sound forward, building upon the last release as opposed to simply recreating the sound. Magic Beans use analog and vintage instrumentation to get a style that is both familiar but original. A B3 Organ here, a Wah guitar there – Vintage Synthesizers, and 808 drums (to name a few) make the music reminiscent of your favorite songs, while still sounding fresh. The Beans make music that moves your mind and body, with something for everyone from the audiophiles to the everyday music fan.

    Since their inception in Spring of 2015, Mungion (pronounced mung-yin) is quickly becoming known for their undeniably explosive and charismatic live shows. The Chicago-based four-piece is rooted in their ambitious compositions and improvisational ability. Drawing inspiration from a wide array of musical styles, they create a raucous, yet jubilant sound all of their own.  Known for their whimsical songs and goofy stage antics, Mungion’s joyous presence is a natural extension of its members, making for live performances that are infectiously lighthearted and deeply sincere. However, underlying the band’s quirky nature is a tremendous amount of virtuosity across all of its members. Combined, this talent and playfulness emboldens the group to be fearless in the studio and on stage. Mungion is guaranteed to have you smiling ear to ear and leaving wanting more.
