4 Bands you Don’t Want to Miss at SunFest 2019!

4 Bands you Don’t Want to Miss at SunFest 2019!

SunFest 2019 is officially 10 days away. There are some big bands coming to town, but my favorite things to do is keep my eyes on the smaller acts. This is how you can watch the big bands of tomorrow… today!

1. Lochness Monster

Thursday 5:15pm – 6:00pm on the Tire Kingdom Stage
Lochness Monster is a Miami-based band that creates a melodic and unique blend of rock music. With an eclectic style and diverse musical tastes, Bruce Donaldson (Singer), Justin Shaner (Guitar), Brad Eavenson (Bass), and Rene Rivera (Drums) incorporate elements of rock, shoegaze, punk, and alternative metal.  Each member drives a certain pairing of uniqueness to round out their sound beginning with Shaner’sdynamic and distinctive guitar melodies, Donaldson’s classically trained vocal range exceeding 4 octaves, Rivera’s drumming precision and powerful stance behind the kit, and Eavenson’s rock and blue’s styling on the bass.

Watch Lochness Monster “Calling Out”  is the first single, released January 11th, 2019, off the upcoming Lochness Monster – EP.

2. Citizen Badger

Sunday, 4:30pm – 5:15pm on the JetBlue Stage
Citizen Badger was the winner of the SunFest Battle of the Bands. In a facebook post they called themselves “Millennial dad rock”.

“Although our music has adult themes like paying bills, social anxiety, and people who go to brunch for Instagram, it’s actually still family friendly feel free to pull up ‘Citizen Badger’ on Spotify, Apple Music, or ‘YouTube’ and blast us at your next PTA meeting.”

Watch them play I’m not mad, just disappointed at Brewhouse Gallery

3. Magic City Hippies

Friday 7:15 – 8:30 at the JetBlue Stage
Miami-band plays “breezy blends of hip-hop, funk, pop, and beach-bum soul that has drawn comparisons to the likes of G Love & Special Sauce, Maroon 5.”

Magic City Hippies began as a one-man band playing for the co-ed party scene on the streets of Miami — serenading the 20-somethings with a mix of old- school hip-hop covers and breezy pop originals.

After SunFest in May Magic City Hippies will be playing Bonaroo in June.

Magic City Hippies are currently in the studio working on their next full-length album, with a slew of national dates planned for Fall and Winter.

Watch “Bull Ride”

4. Arielle

Sunday 5pm – 5:30 on the Ford Stage
I’ve got a hippie heartbeat, with an edgy rocker spirit. ? I was born in the USA,?? but the world is my home.
A few of my favourite past-times are hugging fans, cuddling animals and traveling, whilst tasting the towns tasty local kombucha. 

Some say I’m a bit of a throw-back, since I’m pretty sure in some other lifetime I was raised in the 60’s and 70’s, soaking up the tie-dye love. It reminds me of good ol’ days, where folks like Joni Mitchell, James Taylor, Queen, Jimi Hendrix, The Who, and MANY more of those greats reigned supreme. 

Ah Well! Missed that boat.  I’m trying to keep the honest essence of the era going in my own way. 

Watch “Voices in my Head

Bonus: Where’s Lizzo now?

Lizzo played early on SunFest in 2015 – last week she released her album “Cuz I love you” which rocketed to the top of iTunes charts and Esquire called “One of the best of the year“. On April 21st she rocked Cochella.

And we were lucky to see her at SunFest 2015
