Mail Order Monsters + Free Hat

Mail Order Monsters: We’re a three piece group from Grand Rapids
Michigan, writing and performing original music using only Commodore 64 computers. Our focus is to make new engaging, original music using the Commodore 64. The group is comprised of three keyboard players, using multiple keyboards connected to Commodore audio circuitry. Our music pushes the Commodore SID sound past its previous limitations as a single SID chip machine, utilizing over 20 audio chips from Commodore computers in our live shows.

Free Hat: Formed in 2017, Free Hat utilizes an eclectic mix of
instruments to create a sound influenced by a wide variety of genres.
Saxophone and Vibraphone lend a jazz-tinged feel to the sound, while synthesizer and electric and acoustic percussion represent industrial influences. With a punk-rock motivated songwriting ethos, this band delivers straight-forward songs while providing plenty of texture and atmosphere along the way.
