Notable achievements are; The band’s win in “2015 Boston battle of the bands” organized by Guerilla music as well as headlining slots in Westbrook Live at 212 Halloween Festival and Salem, MA’s Halloween Festival.

Aunt Ange - (Set time: 9:00 PM)
Aunt Ange
Aunt Ange began as a subconscious entity residing in the heads of boyhood friends Patrick O’Brien and Jack Kearney, and has since evolved into a art-rock collective: Incorporating visual arts and storytelling into their performances and recordings. The innovative sound combines lush instrumentation and choral harmonies into what Doktor John (Aquarian Weekly Magazine) described as “...Dark and trippy—heavy on concepts of mystery and mortality—Aunt Ange draws on themes that tap into a childlike vision of Grimm fairy tales, set to rock, with elements of early twentieth century musical idiom, and accented with occasional rusty-sounding saxophone riffs...” This ambitious, multi-media project seeks to expose basic human emotions, delivering a universal truth and blurring the lines between the “real” world and “fantasy.”
