Bad Dagger and 800lb. Gorilla
About Bad Dagger
In the fall of 2016, Brice Jones (guitar) was added to the lineup. Never really knowing how a guitar player would fit in with their style, Cameron and Eddie were immediately floored by the element that Brice brings to the music. Brice’s instincts and artistic taste were spot on right away, adding a crucial ands melodic balance to the band. Although they have similar influences in music, each member has a unique taste and sensibility. This helps add to the evolution of the unique brand of music they have developed.
About 800lb. Gorilla
800 lb. Gorilla is a rock/jam band based in Indianapolis, Indiana. With a rock and roll core, the band pulls together funk and jazz influences to create driving, catchy, danceable grooves. A power-trio band, 800lbG places rock-solid guitar, funky keyboards and sax on top of a drums-and-bass rhythm section. The band’s original music blends indie-esque songcraft with funky, jazzy improvisation.
Originally formed by brothers Mark (guitar) and Daniel (lead vox) Humphrey, the band has evolved from a hard-rock power trio into a funk and jazz style after adding Kwame Newton (keyboards/alto sax) to the collaboration.
800 lb. Gorilla has enjoyed a warm welcome from music lovers as they have developed their show on stages across the midwest. Their fanbase is rapidly growing as the band ventures further. They are fortunate to have been invited to play festivals in 2015 and ’16 including Hyperion, Good People Good Times, and Taste of Bloomington. The band was also invited to open for The Werks and Twiddle on several occasions.
