AJ Froman is a 5-piece psychedelic, progressive, experimental rock project from San Diego consisting of driving dancy riffs and melodic breakdowns. With influences ranging from latin to progressive rock and funk, the group does a fine job taking you on a musical journey through harmonized melodies and syncopated rhythms.
TV Broken 3rd Eye Open is an eclectic and versatile seven piece band that fuses together a multitude of musical styles from across the world into a psychedelic explosion of sound. Equipped with didgeridoos, saxophones, sitars, guitars, world percussion, drums, bass, flutes, harmonicas, banjos, and the kitchen sink; it is a musical ensemble like no other. The band draws inspiration from a myriad of musical genres such as afro funk, jazz, psychedelic groove, Indian, folk, blues, and even spaghetti western circus cabaret. Though the band’s sound is unique in it’s own right, the TV Broken 3rd Eye Open experience also has a significant visual component. Every show involves a custom designed, state of the art, TV totem 3D projection mapping stage. The stage is composed of four 15 foot tall totem poles of broken TVs and a giant thrid eye. Stunning visuals of sacred geometry and psychedelic imagery are then projected on to the stage to combine with the music to make for a truly unique experience.
Grooving and playing with so many different styles and sound textures has allowed the band to continuously grow from a style perspective. Just as their music has grown, so too has their festival presence. Having played at festivals such as Burning Man, Indigo Vortex, Serenity Gathering, Lucidity, and Lightining in a Bottle; TV Broken 3rd Eye Open’s exposure is on the rise. The band’s recent collaboration with visual prodigy Jordan Leonard a.k.a “Pickles” has certainly solidified TV Broken 3rd Eye Open’s status as a must see band on any festival line-up. In addition, members of the band can facilitate workshops, lectures, and classes of different kinds to enrich any festival experience. For example, one of the members is a certified and licensed sound therapist who can provide personal/group healings, workshops, meditations and interactive experiences involving sound healing. TV Broken 3rd Eye Open’s current line-up consists of Adrian Johnson (global instrument specialist), Nathan Harvey (drums), Jasym Ellis (guitar, synth), Travis Soto (Bass), Alaska (Saxophone), George Liebel (Percussion), and Avi Davis (visuals).
