The Bands


Representing: Bullhorn

Stampede is a Boston-based Rock band started by Art Papas, Matt Fischer, Mitesh Ashar and Alex Reinart in 2015. The band’s sound is heavily influenced by the Foo Fighters Led Zeppelin U2 and Pearl Jam. You can follow them on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram @bandstampede and on the web at www.bandstampede.com


The Layer Cakes

Representing: Pega

The Layer Cakes is a group of Pega employees that thankfully have days jobs! The group formed to surprise and entertain the company at our annual kick-off event a few years ago. Despite a wild and raucous reception, dreams of going on tour have eluded us. However, we continue to take every opportunity we can to get together, make good music, and put a smile on a few faces.

The Spicolis

Representing: Monster

Taking our name from the beloved character of the classic 80's movie "Fast Times at Ridgemont High", the Spicolis embody the fun-loving ethos of the Sean Pean-created Spicoli, while delivering hard-hitting rock and pop.Comprised of a crew of dedicated musicians from the metro-west area, the Spicolis love to party, live to play and will liven up your event with a awesome mix of music from the 80's (of course), with a smattering of AM Gold from the 70's, You'll be sure to hear some gems from the Cars, the Pretenders, the Police, ELO, Wang Chung, the Bangles, the Clash, Madness, Blondie and a few one-hit wonders among others.

JC and The Breakers

Representing: Bluebird Bio

Late in 2017, in an environment (we call it the nest) where you can b colorful, b cooperative and b yourself, a group of creative employees came together to argue over whether the bluebird bio band should exclusively play songs that mention birds, flying or the color blue. The debate rages on to this day and may never be resolved… JC & The Beakers is comprised of hobbyists, independent artists, and new parents imposing on their significant others to watch the kids so we can practice. We try to never lose sight of the fact that we’re the equivalent of the house band on a cruise ship, except the ship is trying to cure cancer and severe genetic diseases.
