Since 2003, Illinois-based singer-songwriter Dan Hubbard has released eight albums and toured extensively through the Midwest and both coasts. In the process, he’s shared the stage with some of the industry’s top artists, built a strong fan base, become a refined songwriter and earned critical acclaim for his efforts. With his foundation in the classic sounds of Tom Petty, Van Morrison, Neil Young and Jackson Browne, Hubbard carries songs of love, loss and soul searching. Like the influential front-men before him, Hubbard delivers a message that people can relate to in good times and bad.
Dan got his first taste of success when the release of his 2010 album See You Again received airplay on over 120 radio stations nationwide. His popularity continued to grow in 2011 when he and his band “The Humadors” released The Love Show. The album appeared on the Top 50 Roots Rock Chart.
Since the success of The Love Show, Dan has shared the stage with numerous national acts including Blues Traveler, Gin Blossoms, G. Love and Special Sauce, Nikka Costa, Cory Chisel, Martin Sexton, Grand Funk Railroad, Howie Day, David Mayfield Parade, Peter Case, The Apache Relay, Jack Ingram, Red Wanting Blue, Pokey LaFarge, Chris Knight, Michael Glabicki, and Andrew Combs.
In 2015 Hubbard collaborated with Nashville producer and 3-time Grammy Nominee Ken Coomer (Wilco, Uncle Tupelo) to record his 4th solo album. The self-titled Dan Hubbard was released in February of 2016, and Dan is currently touring nationally in support of the record.

Mike Reeb is a full-time touring musician from Indianapolis, Indiana. In 2013, is on pace to perform at least 150 shows across the United States. Through the first four months of the year, Mike has already performed 46 shows within 10 different states.
Throughout the Midwest, Reeb has opened for several notable musicians, including Alejandro Escovedo, Joe Pug, Sleeping at Last, Bill Mallonee, Switchfoot, Denison Witmer, Jeremy Messersmith, Elsinore, Kink Ador, The Honey Trees, Derek Webb, Company of Thieves, and Jason Webley at venues like Schubas Tavern (Chicago), Hotel Cafe (Los Angeles), The Listening Room Cafe (Nashville), Mike & Molly's (Champaign, IL), Double Door (Chicago), Duffy's Tavern (Lincoln, NE), Lindbergs (Springfield, MO), Czar Bar (Kansas City), The Frequency (Madison, WI), and Rumba Cafe (Columbus, OH). In 2010, one of Mike's original songs was also featured in the movie Janie Jones, starring Abigail Breslin.
Mark Thornton of the Chicago Tribune writes, "He keeps drawing positive reviews and kind comparisons to musical legends. Names like Dylan and Springsteen are often thrown out too loosely when used to describe up-and-coming artists. In Reeb's case, however, the connections may be warranted." Mike's musical and song-writing influences include Jeff Tweedy, Damien Jurado, Ray Davies, John Steinbeck, Gillian Welch, David Bazan, and Bob Dylan.
