Dope is a New York based quintet led by brothers Edsel Dope (lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and Simon Dope (keyboards). While at Polytechnic in Brooklyn, Simon was joined by his brother and starting raiding other bands for lead guitarist Tripp Eisen, bass player Acey Slade, and drummer Preston Nash. They began a selective series of gigs in late 1997. In October 1998, they were signed to Flip Records, which made a production deal with Epic. Dope’s debut album, Felons and Revolutionaries, was released in September 1999. The Dope brothers gutted their lineup after ensuing tour, switching Slade to guitar and bringing in original bassist Sloane Jentry, guitarist Virus and drummer Sketchy Shay. In the fall of 2001 they released their second album, Life. Two years later, the band inked a deal with Artemis, and issued Group Therapy. Their next album, American Apathy, arrived in 2005. Dope’s most recent album, No Regrets, was released in 2009. Sputnik Music says, “4 years after the release of "American Apathy", Dope show that they can still kick some serious ass on this fun record.”

Liberty Falls

Genre: Modern Rock

Liberty Falls is a modern original active rock band from Peoria,IL. The band consists of a few general principles. Write good music, and put on the most electrifying stage performance that they can. It's the age old rule of 10, or 10,000, you play that venue like you've sold out the civic center. These two principles have been Liberty Falls' bread and butter since day one. Returning in the summer of 2011 with a semi different line-up than you will see now, they are back with a vengeance in 2013. Liberty Falls is a brotherhood, a musical alliance. It combines five musicians all coming from different musical and life backgrounds. The blend of musical influences is what empowers the creative flame that is this band.
