Local Music: The Knowmads

31 Aug

Not only did I hit the road to bring you guys a live concert experience, I am also proud to announce that this will be our first Local Music Artist Spotlight! The Knowmads are a four piece band hailing from Marlboro, NJ. Although the band has only been together for a little over a month, the chemistry between the band members is incredible. They are all very talented musicians who really have a feel for music. Their jams are awesome and make you want to dance and their ability to seamlessly change genres on a dime serves as a tribute to their talent. This is the second show they have ever played together and it was a great time (I wasn’t at their first show because I was seeing Sound Tribe Sector 9). The members have gone off to college for now but come Thanksgiving Break I will hopefully have some new music from The Knowmads for everyone to enjoy. I’ve posted some live videos along with a sound board recording so that everyone can put them on their ipods and and enjoy their music on the go 🙂

P.S. If any other bands want us to post their music, feel free to email your stuff with a small description of the band to turnupyourspeakers@gmail.com

Did you get a chance to see Umphrey’s Mcgee this past Saturday? Well in case you didn’t, Turn Up Your Speakers went on the road, armed with video cameras, to bring the concert experience right to your computer. If you don’t know who Umphrey’s Mcgee is, they are one of our favorite bands. We wrote a description about them in our first post, but just to reiterate, they are an unbelievable jam band comprised of extremely talented musicians, who put on an amazing show. Lucky for you, Turn Up Your Speakers is bringing you this amazing show (they have a crazy light show too too) directly to you. But what if you say, “This show is amazing! I wish I was there (sad face). Where can I get more?” Don’t worry. We have you covered. You can stream and download this show in its entirety for FREE right here. Check these videos out!
