Emerging from the Pennsylvania music scene, from the outskirts of the City of Brotherly Love, is the phenom band known as Flux Capacitor. Their fiery, distinct sound has catapulted the group with lightning speed into the National Music Scene. This band of brothers consistently inspire and evoke a new and wildly addicting sound resonating with elements of rock, improvisation, and electronica.
They redefine musicality with positive prophetic vocals, complex guitar work, innovative keys/synths/bass stylings, with feverish syncopated drum rhythms. Performances at every show dubbed "Encounters" are filled with improvisation, musical segues, spontaneous covers and teases, creating a one-of-a-kind experience. The brothers are clearly devoted to current affairs, the future of the world, their craft, and their fans. Their intense playing feels almost effortless and is charged by a higher power.
Their electric vibe transcends the stage and extends into the crowd creating a magical musical ambiance of jamming on tribal proportions. Flux has adopted a freer stylistic element of music that embraces and engages their audiences.
Flux has traveled the east coast, mid-west, south-east, and Canada headlining festivals, clubs, and a plethora of venues. Their new CD, "Monolith," was recorded with Jack Endino in Seattle Washington, famed for recording with many of the great acts of the last century: Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, and more.
The band has shared the stage with Umphrey's Mcgee, Keller Williams, Railroad Earth, Rusted Root, Papadosio, The New MasterSounds, Tea Leaf Green, Karl Denson`s Tiny Universe, Conspirator, Stanton Moore, JGB, David Grisman Quartet, Ivan Neville's Dumpstaphunk, Kung Fu, Splintered Sunlight, DangerMuffin, and Lukas Nelson to name a few!
Flux has an exploding and loyal fan base which confirms that "When you're in music -- you're in Flux."
Jason Ring is known as a "one man country-bluegrass-blues band," and has been characterized by the International Bluegrass Music Association as one of the "Fresh Sounds in the World of Bluegrass" (IBMA, Jan 2008)
Several time winner at the Virginia Bluegrass Music State Championships (Virginia Folk Music Association)
Jason can skillfully play almost any stringed instrument including guitar, banjo, mandolin, dobro and bass. Don't be surprised if he also throws down on a smooth skat including his impressive "mouth trumpet."
As a one man show, he also impresses with the use of a loop station for part of the performance. With all his instruments at hand, those "flaming fingers" enable his style and demeanor to be unmatched.
