Tropidelic
Tropidelic
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.
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.
