Aliver Hall
Aliver Hall
Ohio’s festival darlings have now turned into a national touring group known for groundbreaking performances at venues across the United States. Aliver Hall’s music combines their signature Akron, OH rock ‘n’ roll grit with groove based dance music, but fans are simply addicted to the raw power, drive and energy that captures the soul of any music-lover.

The band is a constantly evolving musical entity that refuses to shy from experimentation. Their live show is full of hypnotic grooves, scorching guitar riffs, lush vocal harmonies, and driving dance beats. The band’s rigorous tour schedule has not prevented them from recording two studio albums Welcome To Aliver Hall (2011), and Chasing The Rain (2012). The band is preparing to release their third album, The Numbing Glow in the Fall of 2014.

"Aliver Hall is quickly gaining attention in Northeast Ohio for its jam-band ways.. [c]erebral stuff indeed." - Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Aliver Hall build skyscraper songs that cement classic rock to granola grooves." - Cleveland Scene

"[A]n eclectic mix of energetic jam pop rock." - AltOhio

"Aliver Hall is a band you have to see live." - Buckeye Music Magazine

"Their improv solos have a rock n' roll feel that flows with the laid back, yet in-your-face, melodic harmonies, licks and guiding percussion... Aliver Hall should be considered up-and-coming." - Buzzbin Magazine
Tropidelic formed in 2007 along the banks of the Cuyahoga River in the murky town of Kent, Ohio. Fusing energetic reggae, hip-hop and funk, the group built a local following distributing over 5000 free copies of their first EP, “Rebirth of The Dope” on campuses and street corners throughout the region. In 2010, the group relocated to Cleveland and bolstered themselves as an area favorite through consistent performances at venues like House Of Blues, Mr. Smalls and Nelson Ledges Quarry Park, supporting acts like 311, Sublime w/Rome, Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, The Wailers, The Dirty Heads, Soja & many more. Their 2010 release, “Erie Vibes & Irie Tides” received airplay
on many area radio stations including CBS-owned 92.3 FM. In 2011, Tropidelic was chosen from a large national pool to perform at Bamboozle in East Rutherford, NJ which boasts an annual draw of 50,000+ attendees. Their first full length album, "All Heads Unite" was released in November 2012. The roughneck Rust Belt reggae riders, along with their Tropidelic Family, continue to bring their Midwest party sound to festivals and venues throughout the region.
Jahman Brahman
Jahman Brahman
Jahman Brahman is a five-member collaboration originating from Columbus, Ohio in 2003, and currently residing in the mountains of Asheville, NC. The musical intuition of each member overcomes the restrictions of any particular genre as they pioneer the musical trail with a sound completely their own. The name Jahman Brahman emerged from each member's goal to achieve the ultimate state of musical c
ohesion; each instrument connected to one another to create a piece of music from the heart of one.

They've described their particular style as shred 'n' flow, a dynamic sound with a wide breath of influence, but a focus on rich, fluid, progressions of energy. Providing the low end, Nate "Brother" Brown brings his own style of funked out and super fresh bass grooves giving depth to Justin Brown's full and conscious lyrics. Drummer Rowdy Keelor gives the sound its steady concrete pulse providing the heartbeat for Casey Chanatry's riveting guitar-work. Layered on top are Josh Loffer's transcendent key strokes and myriad of effects. Combined, Jahman Brahman leaves the listener with a message on life, love, and the wonders experienced being part of an extraordinary musical family.

Each member holds a unique passion toward many different audio paths, with influences ranging from classic rock to electronica; from punk to jazz. Instead of conforming, they ascend music through the coalescence of their diverse styles, taking risks that unfold into powerful jams and creative compositions.
Blue Moon Soup
Blue Moon Soup, the acoustic folk quartet from Yellow Springs, Ohio, entrances audiences with an eclectic mix of jam band staples, folk and bluegrass traditionals, and originals tunes that fuse folk and psychedelia to establish a unique identity in an increasingly homogenized musical landscape. As evidenced by the presence of a fiddle, mandolin, guitar, and upright bass, Blue Moon Soup's bluegrass and celtic folk roots run deep. On stage, trailside or fireside, Blue Moon Soup's music brings a sincerity and spirit to the stage that sweeps wallflowers onto the dance floor, and an enthusiasm that engages the audience into the wee hours. After a Blue Moon Soup show, we hope your feet are tired and your ears yearn for more.
Drunken Sunday
Drunken Sunday will be releasing their brand new album, “Stay True” and will be playing two sets!

Drunken Sunday based out of Kent Ohio, brings to the Ohio music scene something completely original. A blend of styles and influences rarely found together in a band, With a very high energy fusion of Funk, Rock, Reggae , and Hip Hop, Drunken Sunday has something for everyone. Led by the wild face-melting guitar solos and equally wild stage antics of Joel Covender, and backed by tight bass lines interwoven with heavy rock and funk rhythms the bands live performance is definitely one not easily forgotten.
Drunken Sunday was officially formed in February of 2012 and found the permanent line-up of members in February 2013. Since then Rod Parks(bass), Ricky Hlavaty (rhythm guitar and backup vocals), and founding members Cory Riley(drums), Josh Slone(hand percussion), and Joel Covender(lead guitar and vocals) have put in a mountain of work to reach their goals. With each performance getting better and better Drunken Sunday looks forward to being a huge part of the music scene around the country in the coming years!
