As the name suggests, psychedelic/progressive outfit Karmic Juggernaut is an overwhelming force of sound. Formed initially as a quartet in 2004, the Asbury Park-based group has amassed a reputation for their eclectic style, musicianship, unique stage performances, inventive songwriting, and innovative solar-powered recordings using the Sun Lab Studio.
Karmic Juggernaut has been performing since 2005 with guitarists James McCaffrey and Randy Preston, and drummer Kevin Grossman.Â Bassist Cody McCorry joined in 2012, and vocalist Daimon Santa Maria and keyboardist Jake Hughes in 2017.Â They have released one full-length album and three previous EP’s, and have shared the stage with many major acts in the music community including Umphrey’s McGree, Bernie Worrell, moe., Keller Williams, Marco Benevento, and many others. Members of the group have been involved with many other acts such as Thank You Scientist, We Used To Cut The Grass, Ike Willis (of Frank Zappa), Remember Jones, Homeless Apians, Bumblefoot, Hive Mind, Bone & Marrow, Elevator Art, and many additional projects.
The band has just released their new full-length album, The Dreams That Stuff Are Made Of, a collection of thirteen unique tunes written by the group. Recorded and mixed at The Hangar at the New Jersey Shore, the new album is a departure from the band’s earlier recordings, featuring new frontman Daimon Santa Maria, keyboardist Jake Hughes, a robust horn section (Joe Gullace & Ian Gray), mallet work by percussionist AJ Merlino, theremin by bassist Cody McCorry, and an array of other instruments. The result is an vintage-inspired album with a postmodern view of psychedelia. This new record draws from an eclectic variety of genres and musical tastes, and touches on topics such as today’s political climate, B-movies, mental illness, and features satirical approaches of contemporary living.

The jazz and pop styles have long existed in separate realms, with separate performers, separate audiences, and little crossover in between.
New Nostalgia is out to change that: a 9-piece jazz/pop/rock band specializing in updating 1980’s pop music for the late 2010’s, the band is led by saxophonist and composer/arranger Neil Carson, whose unique instrumental interpretations of classic tunes by Cyndi Lauper, Tears for Fears, Tracy Chapman, Peter Gabriel, and other 1980’s artists are brought to life by a full 5-horn section and a driving rhythm section.
New Nostalgia’s sound and concept is born of a distinct void in creative music. Utilizing the verses, choruses and hooks of pop and rock, the advanced harmonic and rhythmic structures and improvisations of jazz, and a little something extra, New Nostalgia occupies a completely unique space in the modern musical landscape.
A proud Chicago band featuring our city’s finest music-makers, New Nostalgia is a live band meant to be experienced in person, so keep eye out for upcoming performances!
