About the bands
The Phryg is New York City’s progressive funk quartet based out of Brooklyn. Equally versed in old-school funk as they are in prog-rock and jazz fusion, their music blends intricate compositions with hard hitting grooves and virtuosic solos. The Phryg was founded in the summer of 2013 by Collin Patierno and Bryan Walters.
The Jawn was formed at the end of 2012 and features the former lineup from Before The Accident Happens: Pat Durkin on guitar/vocals, Josh Reichardt on drums and Mike Novak on Bass. With the addition of Ricky Haldis on guitar, this new quartet has already begun making a name for themselves, with an explosive debut at The Legendary Dobbs to a packed house as well as making the finals of The World Cafe Live’s Monthly Philly Rising competition after only their second performance. The Jawn is currently working on tracks at Milkboy The Studio, where great Philly acts such as The Roots, Dr. Dog, and the Disco Biscuits, as well as major label artists such as Justin Timberlake, Usher, and Dave Matthews have recorded. The recordings which will be out in the Spring of 2013.
