Jill McCracken is an indie songstress that thrives on classic pop and soul. Her catalog of original songs over the past 10 years have evolved from an indie rock upbringing to a soulful pop sound that draws inspiration from Lake Street Dive, Kat Wright, Nicole Atkins, Amy Winehouse, Aretha Franklin, Paul Simon, and of course, The Beatles. Constantly voicing tales of misadventures and love of all kinds, Jill's performance is intimate, sincere, and unrelenting. Backed by her long time friend and musical partner Kevin Ewer (drums), these two are delighted to have added Jim Horvath (guitar) and Brendan Duran (bass) to the lineup.

Dr. Fidelity is a seven-piece soul band from East Somerville in favor of positive vibes, friendship, dancing, and occasional lovesick balladry (for good measure). They have been performing around Boston since March 2014 at venues like The Middle East, Aeronaut Brewing, Sally O’Briens and Thunder Road.

The Novel Ideas are a country folk quintet of friends from Brighton. They create a blend of pastoral, harmony driven, and plaintive Americana.
