Combining influences from electronica, funk and jazz, this quintet from New Jersey has been taking on the Northeast jamband scene since 2009. Newton Crosby has shared the stage with moe., Umphrey's McGee, Conspirator, Jen Hartswick, Wyllys and The New York Hustler Ensemble and The Heavy Pets.
Newton Crosby makes it a point to keep the music at high energy and the crowd dancing throughout the show. With Alonzo Sisco on drums and Billy Vegas on bass, together they gel in unison creating perfect conditions for improvisation. Stephen "Squigs" Minutillo and Chris Cartelli, guitars, keys and vocals, elevate the band's sound by trading off of each other's leads and directing the set's musical exploration. Eric 'Eroc' Mitchell rounds out the line-up, bringing his great piano stylings and unique brand of synth sounds to the music. The recent additon of Seth Eisenstein on saxaphone completes the bands sound and adds to the bands musical diversity. Climactic peaking jams backed by breakbeats and thumping basslines, Newton Crosby is sure to get the crowd and dance party going.
