Kendall Street Company
From late night jam sessions at the University of Virginia to the main stages of venues throughout the East Coast, the Company has broken out of the college bubble and into a world that loves to groove to a great live show. The band was founded in the early months of 2013 by guitarist/vocalist Louis Smith and saxophonist Andrew Drehoff. The duo had been playing together for some time in the greater Virginia Beach area, joined by a rotation of talented musicians who performed behind Louis as the Louis Smith Band. After moving to Charlottesville in late 2012 to attend the University of Virginia, the pair began putting together a group of student musicians, adding Brian Roy on bass/vocals and Ryan Wood on drums/percussion in early 2013. Since then, the band has added Andrew King on keyboards, Ben Laderberg on the electric guitar, and Jake Vanaman on saxophone.
Kendall Street Company performs regularly along the East Coast, maintaining a central presence around the state of Virginia. While the Company's music is influenced by a variety of musicians and styles, the group has been described as "psychedelic," "alternative," "jammy," "rock," "indie," and "ska". Their recent performance at the 2017 Lockn Music Festival was praised by Relix magazine as having "[raised] the crowd's energy with frontman Louis Smith and guitarist Ben Laderberg's acoustic/electric interplay and lively, technical breakdowns". It is not uncommon for guest performers to join the group on stage for extended jams.

Foxtrot & The Get Down
Foxtrot & the Get Down began at West Chester University through mutual musical interests between singer/songwriter Colin Budny and bassist Ken Bianco. Bonding over acts like G. Love & Special Sauce and A Tribe Called Quest, Budny and Bianco began creating music and playing sets around Philadelphia and the surrounding areas. After adding vocalist Erica Ruiz, the band released their debut EP "Sold the Soul" in 2014.
After signing to Nashville based indie label American Echo Records, and adding their permanent fixture at drums Jimmy Iovine, the band began toured extensively, and in February 2017, the band released their debut LP, "Roots too Deep". With positive critical response, a strong social media following, raucous live shows, and a growing fan base, the band re-entered the studio in the fall of 2017.
In October 2017, Foxtrot released "Shine", the first in a series of singles that showcases the band's growing sound. Showcasing both Budny and Ruiz's vocal strengths, hooky songwriting, and a horn section, Foxtrot blends the ideals of Bruce Springsteen, The Killers, Alabama Shakes, while staying true to their rock, soul, pop, and blues roots.
