About the event

About Litz:

A decade ago, Four-headed funktronic giant LITZ began leading  listenerson energetically-charged adventures through feeling and sound.  As theysharpened their showmanship and songcraft in the Maryland jam  scene,LITZ ventured forth, opening for names like Papadosio and Lotus  whileadding Electric Forest, Resonance, and Peach to their festival  accolades.The foursome–Austin Litz (keyboards, saxophone, vocals), Logan  Litz(bass), Dan Gallerman (guitar), and Nick Thrasher (Drums)--are  constantlyproducing new tracks that defy categorization musically  andmetaphysically. Combining funky horn riffs, wah-wah keys, pounding  bass,flute, and sensational guitar, they curate a sound that isn’t  decisively funk,jam, go-go, or soul but irrefutably and exquisitely  LITZ.On stage, LITZ are custodians of the audience’s dreams, fears, and  hopes.Their mesmerizing synergy and improvisation inspire authentic  connection,reminding us that music, more than a sound, is a feeling. No  two LITZexperiences are identical. As they riff and take risks, LITZ  rocks theiraudiences’ senses and souls, pulling listeners into new  realms of emotion.Ecstatic introspection, laughs with friends, and  dances shared withstrangers are equally part of the LITZ odyssey.

About The Sun Champs:

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. The band’s self-produced debut LP “Equator” was released  in August 2023, and is now available on all major streaming platforms.  In June 2019, The Sun Champs independently produced and released their  first self-titled EP.
