Fox Street Allstars
Make no mistake: the Fox Street Allstars (FSAS) reek of the roadhouses and West Texas honky-tonks of the deep south that inspired their signature sound. The band brings an all-out-party to every show by pouring their hearts and souls into every note. No one really has any idea where front man Jonathan "Skippy" Huvard channels his soulful, whiskey soaked vocals and frenetic stage presence but the result is a blistering powerhouse of sound that defies his age and time itself.
"We strive to make people feel as if they are a part of the show, a piece of the action, not just watching a concert," Huvard said. "I want the audience to escape from the worries and pressures of life and to set themselves free of all burden; to reach a point of pure joy and elation, and to dance their asses off."
From the first note of their debut album Welcome To Mighty Pleasin' to the last, the FSAS have proven that they can take their high energy stage show, inject some heartfelt ballads, and create an album that will please fans of funk, blues, soul and rock-n-roll alike. If their opening slots on multiple national tours with funk legends The New Mastersounds are any indication, the FSAS are a band that is poised to break through into the mainstream at any moment. There's a reason why artists like Brian Jordan, Nigel Hall, Stanton Moore, Tony Hall, Corey Henry, Joey Porter, The Motet, George Porter Jr., and others have sat in extensively with the band: musicians realize these guys have serious chops and the sound is serious fun.
8604 is a St. Louis based band bringing soul grooves to bars and venues across the city.
Akron, Ohio's Aliver Hall brings rock and roll to its happy place, while at the same time getting down and dirty. Anthemic, uplifting energy characterizes the group's live show, which continues to leave concertgoers wanting more and more, thanks to a fury of progressive rock drumming, tight bass lines that weave in and out of vintage-toned guitar rhythms, and lush vocal harmonies. Featuring as much heady structure and lyrical prowess as loose improvisation and jamband-inspired soloing, Aliver Hall is most at home on stage. Still, the band's debut studio effort, "Welcome to Aliver Hall," gained the attention of fans and critics alike in 2011 with its concept album structure and superior sound, and, in 2012, the band received critical acclaim for their live release, "Live Summer and Fall 2011," and their second studio effort, "Chasing the Rain." During this time and since, Aliver Hall have established themselves as an in-your-face rock act alongside their jamband roots, touring extensively and turning heads wherever they go.
