The Van Burens are a family band of like-minded weirdos who love to make vital and vivid music together. The Official Band of Quincy, MA (the City of Presidents), the VBs are dedicated to the pursuit of fun, energetic shows that move folks to dance, laugh, and feel feelings. These songwriter nerds serve up reggae, funk, and rock music in the tradition of family ensembles like The Wailers, Parliament, and The Band, often with an irreverent take.

KONG brings the Thunderfunk, genetically engineered to plaster the walls of your ears with visual groove product placement. These diverse musicians from different backgrounds come together to bring back the feeling of your first head nod.
