Particle - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Particle
2014 will find Particle touring extensively from coast to coast, and the band will also be releasing its first full-length studio album since 2004’s Launchpad. In addition, we’re looking forward to releasing a number of archived albums, EPs, videos, and remixes.

This is a time of revival for Particle and it is also a time of change. Bassist Eric Gould adopted a little girl from China this past May, and drummer Darren Pujalet is about to become the father of twin boys. As they embark on the journey of fatherhood, Eric and Darren will be stepping back from their full-time roles in the band. Founding member and keyboardist Steve Molitz will carry the Particle torch along with longtime guitarist Ben Combe and an exciting new rhythm section.

Although Eric and Darren won’t be touring, they’ll both still be involved in Particle whenever time permits. They will appear as featured guests on recordings, and they’ll also perform as special guests at select concerts. Eric and Darren will also both remain active in the music scene by performing with their various side projects including Game 7, Dirty Dawgs, and Pink Talking Fish.

As the band continues to evolve, we are all very happy to welcome two great friends and incredibly talented musicians to the Particle family:

Clay Parnell has been touring on the national scene since 2000, and he is best known for his roles as a founding member and bassist for Brothers Past, BioDiesel, and Kick Rocks.
Clay and Particle have crossed paths many times over the years at festivals and concerts, and he and Steve have recently developed a great chemistry playing together in several bands (Everyone Orchestra, SkyDeck Allstars, Bad Puss). Clay’s signature low end sound and deep pocket grooves are the perfect match for Particle’s driving dance beats and expansive improvisation...

Brandon Draper is a multi-instrumentalist who has toured as the drummer for bands ranging from multimedia performance troupe Quixotic, to disco queen Donna Summer. When he’s not on the road, Brandon holds music faculty positions at both The University of Kansas and Kansas City Academy. Brandon first played with Particle in 2009, and since then he’s played drums with the band at a number of shows, including two appearances at the Catskill Chill Music Festival in Hancock, NY. His explosive mix of electro breakbeats and world rhythms is the perfect foundation for Particle’s high-energy dance music...

And so begins another chapter in our adventures! We’re all really looking forward to this next phase in the band’s evolution. We’ve always been the kind of band that is fueled by the energy of our fans, and we’re grateful to be a part of such an amazing live music scene that embraces invention and exploration.
Shaky Feelin' - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Shaky Feelin'
Emerging from Ventura County's fertile music scene, this powerhouse of a quartet is most noticable for their eye-catching groove based double drum sound & shredding guitar solos; combining high-energy rock, reggae, blue grass and funk to create the most memorable live show you've yet to see!

Shaky Feelin' started out as a combination of 2 bands playing 2010's new year's eve show. Combining the guitar & bass players from The Situation & adding the drummer from Tantalus Muse; Mark Masson, Rob Jeffries III & Paul Menchaca hit the ground running as a band quickly writing songs. It wasn't until the addition of 2nd drummer & much accomplished sound man Cameron Probe in early February that Shaky Feelin' took form as the captivating band that they are today.
