“Many groups have claimed to be rock and roll, and while they undoubtedly were, very few can exemplify the scene’s various monumental sounds successfully in one album. This New Brunswick, New Jersey-based band has set the bar high for themselves, but with a raw talent like theirs, blowing away expectations seems like something they’re used to.” – Dean Scordilis, The Aquarian Weekly
“Dinosaur Eyelids, a propulsive outfit blending hard-rock, punk and psychedelia is one of the New Brunswick local scene’s strongest acts.” -Bobby Olivier, NJ.com
“Through fuzzed out guitars, grunge rock inspired elements, and a bit of 70’s Rock swagger, Dinosaur Eyelids will have you rushing the stage to get a piece or to offer a pitcher or two after their set. While Mudhoney, Soundgarden, Fu Manchu and local heroes Mr. Payday each come to mind, all comparisons aside, it’s quite evident that D.E. are on their own trip.” – JerseyBeat.com
“You guys are great.”
Up and Orange
Soaring melodies, chunky grooves
The origins of Up and Orange can be traced back to the moment when an 11-year-old Owen Dudley became obsessed with learning to improvise on the guitar. Originally a classical violin and piano student, he was then drawn to the sounds of Jimi Hendrix, and later in his teenage years discovered the music of jazz greats, jam bands, and songwriters. He indulged equally in artists like Phish, Medeski Martin & Wood, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Joni Mitchell. This led Owen to compose in a style founded on adventurous, free-spirited instrumental forms as well as succinct, memorable songs.
Growing up in New England, Owen studied with mentors Steve Blair and Andy Moroz before leaving for New York City, where he studied music at The New School. There he met bassist Jonathan Toscano, drummer Colin Taylor, and keyboardist Darren Denman, who were an instant fit with the Up and Orange sound. United by a shared vision and the joy of never playing a song the same way twice, Up and Orange are elated to be performing and look forward to coming to your town!
