"Disco" band spearheaded by Ivan Sunshine (Ghost Exits/Vietnam/Love As Laughter) and Tom Gluibizzi (Original guitarist from Psychic Ills). The band is somewhere between a 7 and 12 piece depending on the event (saturday airs on the 12-piece side) with Chris Anderson (Ghost Exits) and Shannon Funchees (!!!/Light Asylum) singing, three percussion players, Doug Pressman aka Record Grouch playing guitar, old drummer from Love As Laughter playing drums, sax player, keyboard player"
