Austin Kolb Band + Jenny Teator & the Fevers

Austin Kolb Band

In 2007 Austin Kolb began a small solo project, writing singer/songwriter music, playing in coffee shops and small venues around Columbia, Missouri. After a few years of that, The Austin Kolb Band was born. In 2010, starting with Austin Kolb (Lead Singer/Guitar), Alex "Soft Serve" Upton (Lead Guitar), and Josh JB Burleson (Drums), they began practice jams and immediately the sound clicked. To fill up the band's sound, they added Walter Beeson (Bass), Cameron Hays (Keys), and Brandon Phillips (Percussion).

The Austin Kolb Band has recorded two full studio albums (The Simple Things 2010 and Life's Lemons 2011) at Centro Cellar Studio in Columbia, MO produced by Will Reeves.

The band has played shows all over the midwest including major reggae artists Trevor Hall, Cas Haley, Wallpaper, The Dirty Heads and The Original Wailers.

The band believes that positive music can make an impact on the world.​​ One Love.

Jenny Teator & the Fevers

Jenny Teator & The Fevers are an aggressive rock pop band with an affinity for groove. The Fevers formed in January of 2013 all connecting through the Columbia Missouri music scene. The background of the players come from rock and metal influences with new interests in jazzier approaches. Originals consist of topics about love, sex, and struggling relationships with an attitude that delivers a strong message to the listener. Teator stomps and belts her opinions through song and has no problem showing attitude. The Fevers deliver a sexy, sultry sound with a twist of multiple pleasurable grooves to get you dancing.

Middle Class Fashion

On minor key piano pop trio MIDDLE CLASS FASHION's debut full length, GIRL TALK, the St. Louis-based group marries breezy, hook-infused pop elodies with slightly dark, classically inuenced arrangements and a penchant for complex, joyous vocal harmonies. Picture Tegan and Sara scoring a Tim Burton film with Danny Elfman.

Singer/pianist Jenn Malzone formed MIDDLE CLASS FASHION in 2010 with a member from each of her two other bands—drummer Brad Vaughn plays bass in Malzone's baroque pop outfit PAPER DOLLS, while she and bassist Brian McClelland co-lead the StL indie pop powerhouse TIGHT PANTS SYNDROME—mostly "to create an avenue for my songs that didn't seem to t as well with the other bands," Malzone said. "And with Brad and Brian's aptitude and enthusiasm for learning and developing new material we were able to speed up the creative process in a way we weren't able to in the other bands—basically, to write a song on Monday, learn it on Wednesday, and play it in front of an audience on Friday. It's fun, and it keeps us on our toes."

The band members have had a great year—Malzone was awarded BEST FEMALE VOCALIST by the RIVERFRONT TIMES' ST. LOUIS BEST OF 2011 poll, and her other project with McClelland, TIGHT PANTS SYNDROME, won BEST POP BAND in the RFT's 2011 MUSIC POLL. After taking a few baby steps early in 2010 with MIDDLE CLASS FASHION—including releasing and touring behind an acclaimed self-titled EP—MCF will be touring in 2012 behind their debut full-length, GIRL TALK, released to glowing reviews January 18, 2012 via Blip! Blap! Records + Tapes.

The band's hometown is rallying 'round the MCF flag—spins from St. Louis independent radio mecca KDHX have made GIRL TALK #1 on their CMJ TOP 30 chart, and the #2 most played album, local AND national, for all of 2012. the ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH featured the band in their LISTEN video series, shooting a whirling live performance of an unreleased track, "Stuck," in a very pink and girl talk-friendly hair salon. MCF wrapped up 2012 with RIVERFRONT TIMES BEST OF ST. LOUIS 2012 awards for BEST POP BAND and BEST LOCAL ALBUM.

Keyboardist Katie Lindhorst (THE GLASS CAVALRY) made MCF a quartet in Summer 2012 and features prominently in the band's new as-yet-untitled LP, to be released Spring 2013.
