The Sidleys

 f50a2f_7195c2ee829041aa8134edfa37f9ecea~mv2_d_2048_1212_s_2
The Sidleys have been making music since 2012. Combining their strong talents as singers, songwriters and multi-instrumentalists, The Sidleys are a family that is creating a rich musical tradition in the Washington DC area. Annie and Steve Sidley, along with their sons, Sean, Colin and Ian Sidley, perform their own eclectic style of melodic, soul-influenced indie rock and shine together onstage with powerful voices, memorable songs and precise musicianship.
The Sidleys have been busy performing at some of the most prestigious venues in the mid-Atlantic region including The Fillmore, The Hamilton Live, The Tin Pan, The Barns at Wolf Trap, Bethesda Blues and Jazz and Villain & Saint as well as festivals and outdoor concert series up and down the East coast.

Meet the band

Annie Sidley influenced by greats like Aretha Franklin, Stevie Wonder, Amy Winehouse and Ann Wilson, honed her skills as a soulful vocalist songwriter and guitarist while touring across the country and playing some of the largest festivals in the US including; The Wine and Balloon Festival (San Diego, CA), Sawdust Festival (Laguna Beach, CA), the ASCAP Expo (LA, CA), Red Revel Fest (Shreveport, LA), Grapevine Festival (Dallas, TX), Music week in Austin, TX, Dewey Beach Music Fest (Dewey Beach, DE), Spring and Summer Fests (Ocean City, MD) and the National Capital BBQ Battle (DC). Annie released three solo albums; “Other Side of the Sun” (1995), “History” (2001) and “Diamond in the Sand” (2006 on her own label and then again in 2007 on Universal) and has also opened for Joan Jett, Chuck Brown, WAR and Kenny Wayne Shepherd.
Steve Sidley trained as a classical musician but was influenced by artists as diverse as Stevie Wonder, The Beatles, The Police and Jeff Buckley.  A multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Steve provided the funky bass for popular East coast bands The True, Derryberry & Alagia, Vertical Horizon and Sam’s House while opening for national acts such as James Brown, The Moody Blues, Cheap Trick, Tom Tom Club and Everclear. Steve released a solo album under the name Mojo Nation in 2008, which along with Annie’s three solo records, formed the seed that would soon blossom into The Sidleys.
Sean Sidley has been playing drums since he was a one-year old and quickly grew into a prodigy, performing onstage with his parents from the age of four. Deeply influenced by funk, gospel, jazz and progressive rock drummers such as Aaron Spears, Vinnie Colaiuta, Dennis Chambers and Keith Carlock, Sean has a dynamic, propulsive style of drumming that powers the music forward whether he’s playing with The Sidleys or his own progressive fusion group, 495.
Colin Sidley began playing the bass at the age of 16 and within a few short years has become a prodigiously talented multi-in-strumentalist and singer. Trained in classical music as well as jazz, Colin has a wide array of influences that shape his musical style, particularly those of bassists James Jamerson, Jaco Pastorius, Paul McCartney and John Entwistle, bringing an exceptional sense of melody and arrangement to everything he does with The Sidleys and fusion project, 495.
Ian Sidley grew up playing along with his favorite rock songs on piano and quickly became a fervent disciple of jazz during his teen years. Playing and crafting his own instrumental compositions, Ian channels the sounds of influences like Chick Corea, Ahmad Jamal, Keith Emerson and Hiatus Kaiyote into a distinctive, rhythmic style with melodies and voicings that bring a deeper texture to The Sidleys and 495.

The Grinders

BLVD-Grinders-800You may remember this band from last year, if you missed them the first time be sure to catch them time. The Grinders are back and will be first to take the stage at 6:00pm. The Grinders came together when former members of a local Baltimore Rock band Declassified united with members from local blues band Mojo Ryzan. The result is a powerful mix of foot stomping, room shaking, blues and classic rock and roll. This mix is heard in every song with 2 hard driving guitars blended with the sweet sounds of a harmonica. The drums and bass lay the foundation for the emotionally charged vocal of Kelly Mac and Mojo Mike. The Grinders are one of those “must see” bands.

Meet the band

Kelly Mac (Vocals, Percussion)
Mike Messmer (Vocals, Guitar)
Larry Younkins (Vocals Guitar)
Carl Rosetti (Harp)
Marc Rosen (Bass)
Fred Germano (Drums)
John Heidenreich (Sound)

The Big Infinite

A band who’s songwriting and touring efforts serve a singular purpose – “to cast light upon the noise in our own heads and connect with others struggling with mental health”. This became clear to the band following the tragic suicide of Jordan Lally’s father in 2014. At the time the band was performing and touring as Fiction 20 Down. Ed Lally was not only Jordan’s beloved father, but also a dear friend to the entire band and an ardent supporter of their musical endeavors. Following Ed’s passing, the band took a hiatus to focus inward and begin to heal. When they reconvened, they dedicated themselves and their newly impassioned music to raising awareness for mental illness and promoting mental health through meditation, via a partnership with the Ed Lally Foundation (for more information about the Foundation please see below). Jordan’s quest for peace had yielded a newly unfiltered artistic expression, with lyrics that were unabashedly honest and vocals steeped from raw passion. As DJ and Dre began jamming on the new material, their musicianship took on new life. Without intention, the guys began to experiment with broader dynamics and explore different instrumentation. Effortlessly and organically, an entirely new sound emerged. Continuing as Fiction 20 Down no longer felt appropriate. The decision was clear that a new band had evolved. Thus was the genesis of The Big Infinite.

The Big Infinite reinvention had repercussions reaching far beyond the band’s music. Their approach to their art and their very mission changed.
“The Big Infinite is a band who has found our purpose. By casting light upon the noise in our own heads, we will connect with others who struggle. Our songs and shows will bridge that connection, while our partnership with the Ed Lally Foundation fosters it further.”

big infinite-webThe Big Infinite is Dj Fritzges (bass), Dre Toney (drums) and Jordan Lally (vocals). For music & more information, please visit thebiginfinite.com.

Come on out and join us for this family-friendly event!

The event will be held between JCPenney and Wegmans. Arrive a little early and grab a bite from one our restaurants. We have Lemom N Ginger, OC Brewing, Panera, Subway and for a tasty summer treat stop by Menchies.

* 6:00pm: Eric Bach
* 7:00pm – 9:00pm: The Big Infinite

About The Ed Lally Foundation

In 2011, Jordan Lally, DJ Fritzges and Dre Toney began playing music together as Fiction 20 Down. Their first 4 years together were a whirlwind of national tours, studio productions and music video shoots. Along the way they accumulated numerous awards, and even charted on iTunes. Fiction 20 Down was establishing a name for themselves and creating buzz within the music industry when suddenly, everything came to a halt.

The band was on tour in Florida in 2014 when the band’s singer-songwriter Jordan received a life altering phone call. His father, Ed Lally, had been struggling with clinical depression and his battle had culminated in suicide.
Fiction 20 Down took a self-imposed hiatus from music. During the time off, Jordan experienced a profound catharsis. Processing his father’s struggles with mental illness along with his own, he dedicated himself to the practice of meditation. Out of that catharsis rose the Ed Lally Foundation and they began their mission.

Ed Lally Foundation Mission:

To raise awareness for mental illness and promote mental health through meditation and associated practices.

The Ed Lally Foundation was established in 2014 to raise awareness for mental illness and to promote meditation and other alternative mental health solutions.

File Jul 11, 5 03 14 PM“As a family, we walked hand in hand with my beloved father Ed Lally as he suffered through multiple bouts of clinical depression – the last of which ended in suicide. We know first hand the pain and destruction that this disease carries with it. We endeavor to provide a glimmer of hope to those afflicted with mental illness, and the families in the same shoes we were once in.” -Jordan Lally
