Fight The Quiet
Fight The Quiet is an American Rock band formed in Flagstaff, AZ, one of many historic stops on Route 66. On March 2nd, 2010, the band independently released their first nationally acclaimed EP, Let Me In. Thanks to their highly marketable sound, Fight The Quiet has been able to secure song placements on various TV shows such as MTV's Real World and VH1's Sonic Ranch. Following the release of their single, "Won't Let Go," Fight The Quiet was named FUSE TV's Unsigned Artist of the month and Clear Channel's Artist to Watch alongside radio favorites Mumford and Son's and Neon Trees.
From Chicago to LA, Seattle to NYC, and way more than two thousand miles, the band traveled and performed while building a passionate fan base across the United States. Fight The Quiet played 250 shows in support of Let Me In, and graduated from dive bars to venues that host mainstream contenders such as Theory of a Deadman, Built to Spill, and Young The Giant.
After months of relentless work, the band is getting ready to release their next album, The City Below. Working with producer J Hall in Nashville, Fight The Quiet cut a record that is not only a worthy follow-up, but also an evolution and progression within their marketable sound.

The Beach Bum Alcoholics
An acoustic Comedy Duo:
With a name taken from a random truck window decal seen by drummer Phil Weseman in his hometown of St. Charles, Gemini Hustler had their name years before the band's formation. As soon as Phil saw the words, he knew he wanted to use them as a band name. Two bands later, that dream came true. Formed from the remains of St. Louis alternative rock band, Brickshy, Gemini Hustler pulls a complete 180 degree turn from it's power-pop predecessor. Before writing any songs, the members agreed that no matter what, the music had to live up to the name. A combination of the Gemini's bi-polar type personality and a hustler's ability to surprise others with their skills had to be reached. More importantly, the group decided not to paint a musical picture using the colorings of their influences, but to mix their paints into a new color. Using Indie Rock as an easel, Gemini Hustler had started painting away. In the winter of 2011 Phil decided to part ways with GH, thus bringing in the newest color, Thomas Bales.
This four piece explosion of sound from the fringe of St. Louis, Missouri, likes to blend the chill lullaby of soft rock with the intense vigor of mutant death core drama phunque (just kidding). But seriously, we'd love to rock you harder than your grandma hopped up on energy drinks on a rocking chair, fo real, so check us :)
