Pi Wrecks is the moniker of electronic music producer/DJ, Jeffrey Edinger, based out of western Massachusetts. Inspired by the sound stylings of Pretty Lights and Gramatik, and with a background in hip hop, Pi Wrecks aims to re-introduce “soul” to the electro-soul genre. His heart-filled melodies juxtaposed with tastefully gritty bass and upbeat funky elements create a well-rounded, dynamic listening experience, taking his listeners all over the spectrum of human emotion. A true artist in every sense of the word, Pi Wrecks refuses to allow his art to be confined within a box defined by genre, mood, or style, which is why he is quickly gaining momentum and amassing a hungry, loyal fan base. Ranging from high energy collaborations with guitarists, rappers, and percussionists to downtempo solo pieces, Pi Wrecks’ music demonstrates his versatility and ability to impress a wide variety of audiences while staying true to his artistic vision. With notable releases with WUMP Collective, Sleepless Collective, Funkadelphia, and The Rust, as well as frequent live performances in the Northeast U.S., Pi Wrecks is riding a significant wave of momentum into what’s sure to be an exciting 2018.

Open Mic ~ Wednesday Friends Day
May 23 @ 10:00 pm – May 24 @ 1:30 am

EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT Any style music, original or cover songs welcome. No matter what instrument you play, come on down and jam. A house band is there for back up. If you’re in a band, are part of a band, or a soloist, come on down for a great night! | 10pm-1.30am

You can play any of our instruments as a participant. We provide the entire music equipment setup (we encourage people to bring their own drum sticks, guitars & bass, but it is not required). Anyone can sign up and then play away, no purchase required!

Our Open Mic is run a little differently than most other Open Mics. Each participant is able to sign up for his/her desired slot and then choose which of the house band musicians that they want backing their set. (ex: Joe signs up for 11pm-11.20pm. Joe plays acoustic guitar. Joe chooses to have the entire house band backing him on his entire set so he lets us know and we make it happen.) When we have that information it makes it easier to call everyone from the audience to get them up on the stage as quickly as possible so we keep the excitement in the air.

As a musician, this night of music is worth checking out and taking part in. Any and all musicians are welcome!
