Positive Mental Trip 

Luke Weiler is an eccentric multi-instrumentalist, philanthropist, singer-songwriter, and the sole member of Positive Mental Trip. Weiler, who hails from the Catskills, has reinvented the idea of mountain music by injecting it with solid rhythms, an electro-folkie spirit and neo-psychedelic nuance. PMT's upbeat jams have been influenced by a census of sounds, including funk, reggae, punk, tribal, southern rock, classical, ragtime, blues, and polka, just to name a few. Weiler has played more than 250 shows since 2006, stopping off at coffeehouses, bars and festival sites all over the east coast. Positive Mental Trip is a band, a state of mind and, for Weiler, a mission statement. He hosts what he calls "Jam For Tots" which helps the US Marine Corp Toys for Tots campaign all over the country. He also puts on a PMT-Fest every May in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains and a portion of every ticket sold benefits charity.
