Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, Big Blitz combines dance, jazz, rock, and electronic musical influences to create their own dynamic sound. Brothers Lucas Ciesielski (Tenor Sax, Bari Sax) and Mason Ciesielski (Tenor Sax, Bari Sax, Synthesizers) unite with drummer Nick Grabigel to forge their unique, infectious style. The trio’s chemistry, energy, and stage presence makes dancing mandatory, rather than optional. Their meld of vintage instruments with modern technology consistently mesmerizes audiences and delivers a huge, hard-hitting sound that will create an unforgettable show.
Pittsburgh’s art-rock four-piece Working Breed greeted 2023 with their second full-lengthLP, Gaslighter, a rock-forward face for the veteran group known for its expansive musicalvocabulary and energetic, theatrical live show. Atjust over half an hour of cathartic,singalong anthems, shapeshifting math-rock rhythms, haunting saw sounds and self-professed“angry trombone,”Gaslighter as much a treat for the ears as it is a statement ofintent. The fire of the past four years is down to a few dying embers, and Working Breed isstronger (and catchier) for it.
Formed in late 2017, The Sun Champs, a Pittsburgh-based funk rock band began crafting a unique sound which incorporated rock, funk, blues, jazz, and latin influences. The band consists of blues-rock guitar connoisseur Randall Penn on vocals and guitar, multi-instrumentalist Michael Cerveris on guitar and keys, master jazz enthusiast Gerald Homme on the alto, tenor, and soprano saxophones and ewi, and the funk-gospel rhythmic juggernaut pairing of Ryan Black on bass guitar and Jordan Allen on drums.

Made up of members with various musical backgrounds, The Sun Champs focused their mission on writing and performing their own musical compositions and constantly challenging their own ideas in order to create a seamless live show, which has been described as a thrilling multi-genre jam session.
