Weathered Siding is a new quartet presenting mostly original material on mostly acoustic instruments and voice.

Aquamuffin is currently played by Kingstoner’s Aidan, Hugh, Mike and Phil, but the group has invited the odd sit-in for live shows. Influences are varied but would likely include: Frank Zappa and the Mothers, Ween, The Residents, Pink Floyd, Gong, Caravan, Slapp Happy, Soft Machine, They Might Be Giants, King Crimson, The Beatles, Holy Modal Rounders, Cat Stevens, Nirvana, Queen, and/or Genesis. Thundercrap (also called thunder-crap music, alt-crap, or simply…crap) is a genre of music that emerged in Kingston in the early 1990’s and remains widely unpopular to present day. The Thundercrap genre consists of various groups that emerged from the independent music scene in and around Aquamuffin. More info.
Kashgar is unique: a blistering mix of rock, world, jazz and funk influences driven by four expert musicians who pay equal attention to crafting good melodies and cutting loose with their improvisational abilities. Backstopped by sizzling percussion and with ferocious lead playing, Kashgar brings new energy to world-rock. The debut CD ‘Kashgar’ was released in 2015 and is available on all reputable (and many disreputable) online services. The lineup currently features Marcus Taylor on acoustic guitars and percussion; Adam Saifer on electric guitars; Sean Corocan on bass and trombone; and Alberto Garcia on percussion.

Harvested from the farms of Wolfe Island, this evolving Trio now nourishes their dynamic sound deep in the molasses of the Lime Stoned City. Wreaking of funk – infected psychedelic expansion, drenched in organic progression. Conjuring obscure tones. Defiant, through the turbulence of todays radio waves. People of the Blue Sun Sphere gather
