Sweet Pickles


Sweet Pickles is the product of a confluence of musical geography founded upon Latin American drumming, soulful bass guitar steeped in DC R&B, punk rock, and guitar work that is influenced by the music of the Appalachian mountain region. Sweet Pickles is a peculiar flavor indeed!

Petty Indulgences


Turning up the heat in the wax museum...Because we're an indie rock band from Washington, DC...

Big Like Bear


The concept for Big Like Bear was born in the summer of 2017 at a rusty dive bar in the heart of Washington D.C. at an ill-attended open mic set. The crew quickly began writing and performing together, fusing their love of funk, blues, soul, and southern rock plus an affliction for John Mayer Trio and 90s hip hop. The result was an explosive blend of soulful vocals, bluesy baselines, guitar riffs harkening back to Joel's doom metal days, and a hint of smooth, sweet jazz. To sum it up, some have called Big Like Bear's sound "indie-pop nostalgia;" others have said "deep-soul groove."

The band has brought its eclectic expressions to venues across the East Coast. In summer 2019, Big Like Bear released its debut EP including “the jam” Carefree and “this year’s hottest holiday song” December Queen.
