During the 1980s, rock had become completely segregated and predictable; the opposite of the late '60s/early '70s, when such musically and ethnically varied artists as Jimi Hendrix, Sly & the Family Stone, and Santana ruled the Earth. But bands such as New York's Living Colour helped break down the doors by the end of the '80s, leading to a much more open-minded musical landscape that would eventually pave the way for future bands (Rage Against the Machine, Sevendust, etc.). Starting with Vivid and continuing on future albums, the band showed that rock could still convey a message. 2013 Marks the 25th anniversary of Vivid, Living Colour's debut record, which will also see them embark on a 25th anniversary tour.
Detroit, Michigan's Kaleido is living proof that rock & roll ain't dead. Guns N' Roses meets No Doubt, their infectious, signature sound and explosive live show has them captivating audiences and winning fans all across the country. The band quickly took over the Detroit scene, gaining seven Detroit Music Award nominations in 2014 and Best Band in Detroit by Real Detroit Magazine in both 2013 & 2014. Since then, they've busted out of the motor city and are currently touring on their latest release Unbreakable. Tough as nails and sweet as pie, front woman Christina Chriss alongside drummer Joey Fava, bassist Cody Morales and guitarists Ronnie Rosolino and Jamie Burnham, are electrifying and unforgettable.
Kaleido has lit up stages at Van's Warped Tour, Rockstar Uproar Festival, Summerfest & CMJ Music Marathon. They've opened for Aerosmith, Slash, Kid Rock, The Offspring, Evanescence, Halestorm, Chevelle, Skid Row, Tesla, Twenty One Pilots, and recently wrapped up a 6 week national tour as direct support for Alien Ant Farm. Lead singer Christina Chriss can be seen occasionally singing the National Anthem for the Detroit Tigers, Red Wings & Pistons.

Life is Sweet!
Powered by Julie Cymek’s sultry, commanding vocals and electrifying stage presence, Sweet Leda is taking the diverse mid- Atlantic music scene by storm as one of the most exciting and accomplished live acts on the rise. In fact, Lou Plaia (co-founder of Reverbnation) describes them as “the highlight of every festival they play.” With its rich blend of new school funk, psychedelic rock, soul and pop, Sweet Leda’s heartfelt original music can best be described as a female-fronted, soul-based, Zeppelin meets Chili Peppers!
Sweet Leda’s sophomore album Let It In captures the live and raw essence of what can only come from years of steady gigs, blood, sweat, and a few tears. To capture this essence, the band recorded all together in one room, tracking analog to 2” tape. What came out of the process is an intimate, in-your-face, edgy sound that exemplifies Sweet Leda live, and at their best. Let It In was recorded and engineered at WrightWay in Baltimore by IRKO (Jay-Z, J Lo, Pitbull, Talib Kweli), mastered by Brian Lucey (Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, Beck, Dr John), and produced by Sweet Leda’s very own “fifth Beatle,” Stephen Joseph Antonelli, who also produced and recorded the band’s first album, Need The Music.
Among the band’s many milestone achievements are: four Tri State Indie Music Awards, including the Groupie’s Choice Award in 2012; Best Emerging Artist DC/Baltimore in The Deli Magazine’s reader’s poll in 2011; sharing the stage with bands like Galactic, 311, and Jefferson Starship; performing at festivals with the likes of Citizen Cope, G Love, Cake, Live, Lake Street Dive, and Tedeschi Trucks; writing the end-credit title track for the feature film Lovely Molly by Ed Sanchez (Blair Witch Project); being hand- picked by Allman Bros. drummer Butch Trucks to open for his band at the Roots Rock Revival Masters Camp; and performing at Summerfest in Milwaukee 2013 and 2015.
"Wake up after a good sleep, hop in a cold shower then do 20 really fast jumping jacks, drink 3 espressos and smoke 4 cigarettes. After doing all of this if you don't have a heart attack you will understand the energy of a Medusa's Disco performance."
