Ian Kieffer - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Ian Kieffer
Ian Kieffer is a folk/pop artist from Los Angeles, California. He grew up with a keen sensitivity to story telling and music and naturally began writing songs around age 10. His infectious melodies and whimsical, yet heartfelt, lyrics stay with you long after you've heard the music and keep you coming back for more.
ARJUN - (Set time: 7:15 PM)
ARJUN
ARJUN, the three-piece instrumental band from New York, has been trailblazing their own hybrid of rock and improvisational jazz since 2003. Led by Eddie Arjun Peters, ARJUN fuses the power of rock with improvisational alternative jazz, resulting in a delicate balance of intricately crafted melodies backed by powerhouse musicianship.

In 2013, SPACE, the first in a critically-acclaimed three-album trilogy, is a sonic dreamscape of fluid improvisations which were conceived and recorded organically. The album's opening track, 'Orion,' features legendary percussionist E.J. Rodriguez (The Jazz Passengers, Sean Lennon, Medeski Martin & Wood, Marc Ribot Y Los Cubanos Postizos, D.J Logic).

CORE, second in the trilogy, is a reinvention of ARJUN's sound and style, rooted in carefully crafted melodies which tell resonant stories without words. CORE features the talents of John Medeski (Medeski Martin & Wood) on its title track, and was mixed by legendary producer Scotty Hard.

In the Summer of 2016, GRAVITY was released as the third and final installment in the trilogy of albums that featured Andre Lyles on bass and Lamar Myers on drums. Recorded and mixed by Scotty Hard, this album also features guest performances by Jeff Coffin (Dave Matthews Band, Béla Fleck & the Flecktones), Cory Henry (Snarky Puppy, Funk Apostles), and Molly Cherryholmes.

ARJUN's soulful, razor-sharp inter-musician communication and chemistry translates vibrantly through their recorded works, and transfixes live audiences across the Northeast. ARJUN has garnered comparisons to artists such as Charlie Hunter, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Jeff Beck, David Gilmore, Warren Haynes and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
