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
Broccoli Samurai
Broccoli Samurai
Broccoli Samurai broke ground as the brainchild of Cleveland natives Ryan "Bruce" Hodson and Chris Walker. In December 2009, bassist Steve Fade joined them, and in 2010 they set out their journey to make a footprint in the electronic jam scene. For nearly 2 years, the psychedelic improvisation of progressive electronica with a heavy drum and bass groove have thrilled audiences across the Midwest. Their positive vibe, energetic stage presence, and undeniable talent have earned them praise among their peers. "Broccoli Samurai inject much-needed playfulness and humanity into the chill out genre. As they put it, "Arrive in good humor, proceed accordingly."" - Scene Magazine The mind-altering, dub-stepping, trance-grooving, zone out or get off your ass and dance music breathes a breath of fresh air into the jamtronica scene.
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!
