Straight out of Orlando, FL, Kash'd Out hits the Reggae/Rock scene with plenty of experience. The band was formed by guitarist Jackson Hauserman and producers Greg Shields & Josh Saldate of Sound Lounge Studios, where bands such as Ballyhoo!, Tribal Seeds and many more have recorded. Once the self-titled debut EP was complete, they recruited Joey Brohawn on Bass and Marshall Hearne on drums, and Nick Gudzan on Keys. Fresh off back to back national tours supporting headliners Pepper + Less Than Jake and Pacific Dub respectively, Kash'd Out released their first full-length album 5/26/17 entitled "The Hookup" via LAW Records. The record reached #2 on both the Billboard and iTunes Reggae Charts and the band plans to continue touring to support the release. Click the "Tour Dates" tab and catch Kash'd Out in a city near you!
The Edjacated Phools are a 6-piece fusion band based in Baltimore, MD. Comprised of Devin Barone (drums), Tyler Garrison (bass), Nick Hatzis, (vocals) Kyle Sappington (vocals), Logan Sappington (guitar, vocals), and Ben Yancheski (keys), they combine a unique blend of rock, reggae, hip-hop, ska and punk influences into a unique sound that is truly unlike any other band. Formed in 2014, the Edjacated Phools have been making noise on the east coast with their dynamic guitar playing, smooth basslines and booming vocals, complemented with melodic keyboards, intricate leads, intense drums and hip-hop icing to complete their powerful sound. In April 2016, the Edjacated Phools recorded and released their EP under legendary reggae producer Jim Fox (Inner Circle, Rebelution, SOJA, The Wailers, Don Carlos) at Lion and Fox Studios in College Park, MD.
The band played its first show in January of 2015, and since then have had the privilege of playing alongside some amazing bands, including: The Expendables, Big Something, Passafire, Roots Of Creation, Higher Education, Pasadena, Bumpin Uglies, Big Infinite, Stacked Like Pancakes, The Henchmen, Bencoolen, The Milestones, and Dale and the ZDubs. The band also recently had the honor of playing at the 35th Annual Artscape Festival in Baltimore, MD this past July, and also organized and curated the very first Hightopps Backstage Bash music festival in Baltimore County in September 2016.
The band has an exciting first quarter of 2017 in store, recently having been selected to open for The Expendables for a second time on March 14th at Rams Head Live in Baltimore, as well Badfish on May 5th at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD. The band will also be playing the Light City Festival in Baltimore on April 6th, and the Johns Hopkins Spring Fair on April 30th.
The band is looking forward to releasing its first full-length LP in 2017.
C.M. began as a duo of Drew Boyd (Multi-Instrumentalist and Local Painter) and Anthony Brand (Formerly of "Dos Maestros") playing roots reggae acoustically in the Newport News area of S.E. Virginia. Soon, Jon (formerly of "Moving Cities"), Spivey and Chad (Also a Member of Johnny Cardigan/The Moore Brothers) joined, adding drums, keys, and bass to give a more full sound. After leaving the band to move out west, Roschell Diggs (Also of Iron Lion/ Machet) and Dalton Snead (Formerly of Double Dose) filled in the provide the CM backbone. Lastly, but definitely not least, Christian "Sticky G " Lubertazzi's roaring Sax was also added in early 2016 to add even more flavor to the overall sound. Boasting live improvisations, high energy, and catchy anthems, C.M. is proud to represent true Roots music on the East Coast.
