Chalk Dinosaur is a musical entity from Pittsburgh, PA. The live show features a unique fusion of dance music, funk and psychedelic rock. It has distinctive melodic themes coupled with a heavy rhythm section, augmented with synthesizers and electronic textures. It’s high energy and emotionally diverse.
Chalk Dinosaur was founded in 2008 by John O’Hallaron and since then the recorded works and performances have been constantly evolving and mutating. Chalk Dinosaur exists today as a four piece band featuring John O’Hallaron (guitar, synths, sampler, vocals), Nick O’Hallaron (drums), Michael Berger (bass), and Jon Henderson (guitar). Fresh off the release of the 24th album, Spectrum, there’s no shortage of tunes to explore.

Shaq Nicholson is a musical group featuring the talents of lead guitarist Steven Lipe, Anthony Gima on rhythm guitar, John Neckerman on bass, Sam Lapp on keys, Brian Taylor on drums, and SJ Kirkland on vocals. When asked to describe their sound, it’s not a simple answer, because it carries across multiple genres. Not to be put into a box, their sound is a psychedelic groove with soul and funk influences, a sprinkle of blues, and a dash of “we don’t take ourselves too seriously”. Influenced by acts such as Pink Floyd, Bill Withers, Amy Winehouse, Erykah Badu and many more, their sound is all encompassing and ready to get you out of your head and onto the floor.
