The Woodshedders

The Woodshedders are an Indie Roots Rock band boasting four all-original studio albums and performances at hundreds of festivals and shows. The band consists of Dwayne Brooke on guitar and vocals, Ryan Mayo on bass, Jesse Shultzaberger on drums, Jacob Smith on Saxophone and Keys, and Fiddlin' Dave Van Deventer on Fiddle. The Woodshedders bring lyricism and musicality to fun, danceable shows that swerve through Honky-Tonk, Gypsy, Appalachian, and Vintage Rock n' Roll, often in the same song.

They have shared this unique musical alchemy at venues near and far, including Red Wing Roots Music Festival, Deep Roots Mountain Revival, Bristol Rhythm & Roots Festival, Mountain Stage New Song Fest, Kingman Island Bluegrass Festival, PBS Song of the Mountains, The U.S. State Department's Fourth of July Picnic, Opera House LIVE!, The Hamilton, Confluence Festival, The State Theatre, The Hippodrome, WAMU’s Capital Americana, The Jefferson Theatre, and their monthly residency at Hill Country BBQ in D.C. They are the also the host band of Virginia’s celebrated Watermelon Park Fest.

Bearcat Wildcat

Bearcat Wildcat is a hybrid creature: A little bit country, a little bit blue, and a little bit rock and roll. The six-member Americana band from Washington DC represents a collection of songwriters, vocalists, and multi-instrumentalists drawing on old American roots music and modern sounds alike. They put on an energetic and intimate live show, featuring warm vocal harmonies, nimble instrumental riffs, and infectious rhythm.

Recorded at Bias Studios in northern Virginia, their debut EP showcases an expansive sound. "Baby Don't Drive" is a rollicking getaway anthem based on a true story, while rhythm-driven "Houston" takes on a different sort of running away. "Rolling Springs" features lush four-part harmonies; She Picks Me Up" is a lively toe-tapper; "You & Whiskey" leaves a mean, slow burn.

Reed Appleseed

Reed Appleseed is an alternative folk-rock, nightmare-country hybrid. Consisting of a five-piece rock and roll band setup, they pay homage to the music they've grown up on, while finding new sounds to give life to the art and push it forward. Simple, beautiful melodies and lush harmonies set the scene for thoughtful, witty lyrics, all held together by a rhythm section so deep in the pocket that they may no longer be wearing pants by the end of the night.
