As the name suggests, psychedelic/progressive outfit Karmic Juggernaut is an overwhelming force of sound. Formed as a quartet in 2004, the Asbury Park-based group has amassed a reputation for their eclectic style, musicianship, unique stage performances, and innovative solar-powered recordings using the Sun Lab Studio. Over the years, Karmic Juggernaut has performed with many notable acts including Umphrey’s McGee, Bernie Worrell, Keller Williams, Marco Benevento, moe., Kung Fu, Screaming Headless Torsos, and many more, as well as being featured in Relix Magazine, on Comcast’s Bands on Demand, and a full special on PBS’ Driving Jersey program.
Karmic Juggernaut has more recently expanded to include the powerful vocals of Daimon Santa Maria and keyboardist Jake Hughes, along with auxiliary members Joe Gullace (trumpet), Ian Gray (trombone), and AJ Merlino (vibes & percussion). This lineup is currently working on a full-length LP recorded at The Hangar, the group’s own studio, for release in Summer 2018.
