The Green Emerald is a storybook rock opera composed by Corey J. Feldman of Cousin Earth that features 13 original songs and an accompanying illustrated book.  Musically, the songs range in genre from rock and funk, to latin and prog with a heavy improvisational centerpiece consistent throughout.  First performed in 2009, this epic is making its first showcase in over a decade with a variety of players.  Instead of finding a single band, Feldman decided to recruit over 20 musicians from his recent musical endeavors, each song with a different lineup.  You can expect to see players from Cousin Earth, Particle, Sophistafunk, ShwizZ, Teddy Midnight, Escaper, Bushicks, Sylvana Joyce and the Moment, Big Wake, Sprocket, Jam the Radar, Uncle Ebenezer, Castle Rat, and more.  

Escaper

The literal definition of Escaper is "one who escapes confinement". Founded in 2016, the Brooklyn based Post-Rock/Space-Funk Fusion quintet strive for a sound without limits.

Their first single, "Castles" was released with 
Ropeadope Records in December of 2016. A full album is set for a release on March 10, 2017. Their label has this to say: "Ropeadope alums Will Hanza, Jay Giacomazzo, and Adam Ahuja are joined by intense drummer Andrew Nesbitt and Sax man Johnny Butler for a purposeful blend of Rock, Jam, and Jazz that sounds like a set of intergalactic travelers surveying their lands with authority. The band name is deliberate - this music is designed to take you away from reality into the realm of possibility

Sprocket

Sprocket was conceived in late 2011. The line-up began as a power-trio, adding piano to the line-up in late 2012. The band began writing and performing in earnest in 2013, releasing their first full album "Tropical Bushwick" in March 2013. 

The band has been featured and reviewed on notable publications such as Jambase, Jambands, Dubera, SensibleReason, and TheBarnPresents...all of which can be found on the band's website, 
SprocketNYC.com The word has slowly been getting out about the NYC jam scene's best kept secret, as the quartet has grown to headline notable clubs such as The Knitting Factory, Webster Hall Studio, and the Mercury Lounge. The band had it's first out of town ventures in 2014 which was, surprisingly enough, hugely successful. 

Work has begun organizing the bands sophomore album. Look for that and for Sprocket to begin appearing at festivals in 2015.
