After packing out the Vinyl Lounge earlier this year, SCR move into the basement for a summertime bash!
Based out of the concrete jungle that is NYC, SCR (Sir Cadian Rhythm) is an alt- rock band known for their captivating live performance and infectious melodies. The bands unique sonic blend, which teeters on the edge of pop and alternative rock, is the result of each member coming from different musical upbringings ranging from musical theater to horn-laden funk to psychedelic rock music. Since their formation in 2015, the band has gone on to perform all over the east coast opening for national acts including Andy Grammer, Blues Traveler, The Robert Randolph Band, and The Record Company. Their highly touted single, “Not Quite Done Yet”, went viral on social media platforms and has accumulated close to a half a million streams on Spotify since its release. The hit song was featured in the video game "Nascar Heat 2” this past fall.


Jason (Jay) Byrd has been a professional guitarist, singer, and songwriter since his late teens. In his early twenties, he co-founded the blues-rock trio The Groov, and in 1996 joined the then-Grateful Dead cover band Wavy Train. Byrd's original songs and guitar work helped Wavy Train to forge a sound that combined pop-oriented melodies with extended improvisation. After moving to the Washington, DC area in 2001, he began crafting songs with a decidedly Americana bent. An award-winning songwriter (Newsong People’s Choice, Mid-Atlantic Songwriting Contest Gold Award and BMI Songwriter Award), Byrd continues to write and perform original roots-influenced music. Byrd’s previous band, South Rail released three EPs, including “Stars,” produced by Don Was. Byrd can be seen performing as a solo artist, with his current band The Music Trust, and as a hired gun for various bands throughout the region.
