#var:page_name# cover


GJK Fest is a three day celebration presented in the Northern Catskill Mountains which we first held in the summer of 2015. It is the product of students and alumni from the University of New Haven who, selflessly donate their time and talent from their different specialties (sound engineering, graphic design, photography and business) to make GJK Fest an unforgettable experience. Our weekend gathering is only made possible through the generosity of our friends, like all of you, whose donations are essential to help cover its’ cost.

GJK Fest was inspired by the life of Graham John Keenan III, who met with the tragic fate of an automobile accident on August 4th, 2012, leaving a hole in the hearts of his friends and family. GJK Fest is a celebration of life through music, presented through the eyes of artists and musicians who all recognize the great healing power of the arts and nature.



Acts Performing:

Sticky Nonsense:

Sticky Nonsense is a new school rhythm fusion project that never stops evolving. The endless soundscape of Mike Silverstein's electric keyboard is the perfect complement to the drum and bass force of Mike Cesario and Joe Schultz. Join us for a night of funky soul music as these local boys bring a whole new life to the classic sounds of 60s and 70s jazz and soul. With a new added twist these days featuring the boss man himself, Matt Crossett.

The Hound: (Trio Edition)

Whether it's a full band or a trio The Hound howls amidst the night singing and jamming to those who find solace in the sight of the moon. Formed in a dark, dreary basement on a wintery CT night. Guitarist Blake Hatch and Harry Drewes providing tasteful work on the strings while myself (Rob Keenan) tries to contain their sound within a discussion of percussion. Bring extra socks, you might need em.
