JOE MARCINEK BAND:
Joe Marcinek Band is an ever evolving mixture of original compositions and incredible musicians. Each show has a slightly different lineup and interpretation. The music is a blend of jazz and funk with a cerebral emphasis on groove and improvisation.

Recently the Joe Marcinek Band performed for former president Bill Clinton's Clinton Global Initiative at the Field Museum in Chicago. The group has featured many prominent guests including Bernie Worrell, Jason Hann (String Cheese Incident / EOTO), Erik "Jesus" Coomes (Lettuce), Jennifer Hartswick and Natalie Cressman (Trey Anastasio Band), Mike Greenfield (Lotus), Borham Lee (Break Science), Steve Molitz (Phil Lesh & Friends / Particle) Joey Porter (The Motet / Juno What), Fareed Haque, Scott Metzger, Nate Werth (Snarky Puppy) Garrett Sayers (The Motet) Allie Kral (Yonder Mountain String Band), Freekbass, Vinnie Amico and Jim Loughlin (moe.) and more!

STEVE MOLITZ:
Composer and keyboardist Steve Molitz has played over a thousand shows around the world since he started his career as a touring musician in 2000. His Los Angeles based electrorock band Particle has played all the major US festivals from Bonnaroo to Lollapalooza, and has received critical praise from Rolling Stone, CNN, and The New York Times. Their 2004 instrumental studio album (produced by Tom Rothrock) was named one of the Top Ten albums of 2004 by the Associated Press, and was later remixed by Groove Armadas Tom Findlay. Molitz has also played hundreds of shows since 2004 as a member of Grateful Dead bassist Phil Leshs touring band, Phil Lesh & Friends. In 2005, Grateful Dead percussionist and Grammy award winning world musician Mickey Hart joined Molitz and Particle for a 30 city U.S. tour under the name Hydra. Molitz has also recorded and performed live with a wide range of top musicians spanning genres from Pop and Electronica to Rock and Americana. Highlights include performances with The Allman Brothers Band, Robby Krieger (The Doors), Rich Robinson (Black Crowes), G Love, and members of Phish and Dave Matthews Band.

Known in part for his innovative approach to playing and programming vintage keyboards and analog synthesizers, Molitz has made several appearances at Moogfest (A Tribute to Bob Moog), and recently participated in the development and design of the latest Moog Synthesizer, the Little Phatty. He also recently completed an interview along with the likes of Stevie Wonder and Herbie Hancock for The Fender Rhodes Story, a forthcoming documentary about the Fender Rhodes Electric Piano. Molitzs music has also been featured in film and television, and recent highlights include his contributions to the score and soundtrack of the forthcoming Ridley Scott film, Tell-Tale, as well as the music he wrote and recorded for the Universal video game Scarface: The World Is Yours.
