The Giving Tree Band
Led by enigmatic brothers Todd and "E" Fink, The Giving Tree Band are making their way to the head of a classy class of young American songwriters and performers. The Finks extended their brotherhood to all 7 members and started out with only a collective heart as big as the ocean. They now wield a wide array of instruments from acoustic and electric guitars, slide guitars and banjos to violin, mandolin and pedal steel. A band's band, they all live together, travel together and do everything as one family, harmonizing their voices and lives on and off stage. The Giving Tree Band is not reinventing but simply reuniting rock and roll. With their down-home style, they emphasize the virtue in their fierce virtuosity - playing each note with integrity, each part with humility, each song with honesty and each show with gratitude. The most common word among reviews is "undeniable" in regards to the chemistry on stage, the energy in the room and the feeling that something special is happening. With a rare combination of stirring musicianship and exemplary songwriting, the GTB wheel is in full spin and, like their heroes before them, it's also on fire.
The Lady Crooners
The Lady Crooners is a folk/pop/'almost' country band, featuring siblings Nadia, Joseph, and Megan Krilanovich, with Kevin Conness, and Jason Braatz.
The Lady Crooners formed in 2010 as a collaboration of siblings, Nadia and Joseph Krilanovich. Song writing was a natural fit for the duo, him with a guitar, her with a love of storytelling, and both with a drive to create. Our collaborations grew to welcome the addition of gifted musicians and our first album, THE LADY CROONERS, was released in 2012.
Our second album, THE SURFACE, was released in June 2013.
Our style has been called everything from folk pop to ‘almost country’. We sing in a signature blend of sibling harmonies with vocals by, Nadia, Joseph, and Megan Krilanovich, accompanied by Kevin Conness on lead guitar, and Jason Braatz on bass. Our songwriting is honest, an anchor in a fast-paced world, with an echo of times past. We tell our stories, sharing heartache, love, laughter, and all the good stuff. We wear boots. We give every performance our all, and we always leave a crowd wanting more.
For us, music is about sharing. It’s about giving and it’s about bringing together family and friends, new and old. We are The Lady Crooners. And we celebrate sharing our authentic, darn good music with you.
The Americans perform original rock & roll rooted in traditional American music. Formed in 2010, the Americans have toured all over the United States and shared billing with the likes of T Bone Burnett and Patti Smith. The band accompanied Grammy- and Oscar-winner Ryan Bingham on his Junky Star and Tomorrowland tours in 2011 and 2012.
