rebel inc. is an intense rock band formed on the outskirts of Detroit, MI, now residing in Baltimore, MD. The original members, Kevin(guitar) and Adam(vocals), relocated with another Detroiter, Brian(drums), and found their bass sound in Benny, an Iowa native who also moved to the Charm City.
They are known for their high energy live shows, thought provoking political lyrics, and powerful guita...r rhythms. The resulting sound is a mixture of rock, rap, alternative, funk and heavy metal.
They self-released their first EP in March 2009 and the feedback from industry professionals and listeners alike, is very positive. Every song on the album has been played on terrestrial radio in multiple states in the USA, as well as Canada and Australia. The album has also had good reviews across the globe, including Germany and Italy.
The group toured US military bases under the sponsorship of Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) in 2008, who also sponsored Rage Against the Machine for a stop on the same tour, in Denver, CO (Democratic National Convention).
rebel inc.'s latest recording "Killin' The Future" is being placed on a compilation album with Tom Morello, Rise Against, Anti-Flag, Ryan Harvey, and many more great artists to benefit the Civilian-Soldier Alliance. The album, "A Soundtrack For Refusal," is due out in June of 2010.
rebel inc. is a must see live act, for their recordings do not capture the band's true sound and their ability to transfer their passion into the crowd with their explosive stage presence.

Hailing from Maryland, SilverTung brings a fresh, infectious sound to the
area's music scene. This four man modern rock band self released their
first full length CD "The Pawn", featuring songs such as the anthemic
"Slow Me Down", the hard driving song "I Am” and the powerful title track
"The Pawn". Front man Speed Vincent says, “I’m still amazed at the
positive response we receive from these songs. At every show we get
people screaming ’Play “Dig”, or Play ‘Lies’.. It seems like they just
can’t get enough (laughs)- and hey, that‘s just fine with us!!”
Currently, SilverTung is working in the studio with Producer/engineer
Steven Wright, (Slipknot, U.N.K.L.E, Misery Index, Drowning Pool, SR-71,
Charm City Devils, Avril Lavigne.) The new full length CD has been
recorded in it’s entirety, and is now in post production. When asked his
thoughts on this new project, Speed reflects, “ Well, I think ‘The Pawn’
is a great CD, I really do, but this group of songs is definitely special.
This CD is much more diverse, and I’d say it’s ‘deeper’”. Co-writer and
bassist “Skoot” agrees. He says, “I’ve heard other song writers describe
that their music has ’matured’.. But, for us, I think it was the fact that
we found the confidence to really open up and write what we wanted to
write, and say what we wanted to say. We wrote songs with attitude, songs
with humor, and songs that will make you cry. Personally, that’s the kind
of CD that I’d want to go out and buy.”
SilverTung has shared the stage with national acts: Godsmack, Disturbed,
ShineDown, Slipknot, Chevelle, Staind, Papa Roach, Adelitas Way,
BuckCherry, Hailstorm, My Darkest Days, Filter, Drowning Pool, P.O.D., Pop
Evil, Nonpoint, Charm City Devils, Smile Empty Soul and In This Moment,
just to name a few. When you see SilverTung live, in concert, be prepared
to have your fist pumping in the air and your heart racing. SilverTung's
musical marksmanship, high energy stage show, and crowd interaction all
add up to a recipe for an exhilarating experience. Co-writer/Guitarist
“ZZ” has this to say.. “We are absolutely passionate about live music.
It’s this exchange of energy from us to the crowd, then from the crowd
right back to us.. There is nothing else like it in the world. When the
fans are singing our music back to us word for word, and their volume is
louder than ours,.. Wow.. It doesn’t get any better than that”.
All these things have earned them their solid reputation, and their ever
growing legion of fans, known as "The Tung Nation." “We can’t thank our
fans enough”, says co-writer and drummer “Danno”. “Let’s face it, without
them we are nothing. But our appreciation is in no way faked.. As a
matter of fact, even when things are hectic and busy, we always try to
spend as much time with fans as possible. Every one of us agrees that
meeting new people is really one of the most fun parts of this job. So
if you’re reading this, come out to a show and say ’Hello’”. (laughs)
The biography of SilverTung is only at it’s very beginning. With the
release of the new CD edging closer, so many great opportunities coming
up in the very near future, and many more songs being written, this
biography will continue to grow at a rapid rate.. So be sure to keep
checking back, as this exciting path unfolds.

15 Minutes is a high-energy rock band based in Winchester, VA. Lead by the charismatic Billy Red Regan, 15 Minutes is one of the region's most exciting live bands.
RGP (Randy Gardner Project)
RGP is an awesome new band that has chosen not to take the same path as many do. Randy Gardner and his partners Tommy Doss, David Haines, Jr. and Lisa D’Arcangelis are ready to make their mark. RGP decided not to play the traditional cover tunes. This makes for a surprisingly fresh set when RGP is on stage, which lets them shine in their own way and makes them a stand out at shows. This group packs energy, winds it up tight and then engages you to be part of their performance. They are a great band to catch live!
Residing on the outskirts of Winchester, Virginia, Southern Governor is a truly distinctive rock band with a style that is virtually impossible to compare. Best described as heavy hitting rock with a southern vibe, Southern Governor delivers a unique package yet still stays true to the "southern" movement made famous in the late 70's. While retaining that obvious influence, the band has evolved by simply adding to that foundation with other, more recent influences. Dirty guitars, monstrous drumming, and deep bass grooves is what you'll come to expect from these guys.
Founded in 2009, Southern Governor started primarily as a cover band focusing primarily on groups like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, Marshall Tucker, Georgia Satellites and the Atlanta Rhythm Section. However, soon afterwards the band found itself evolving, as various other styles and tones began to infiltrate the outline. Black Stone Cherry, Foo Fighters, Nirvana, Halestorm, Shinedown, and even Led Zeppelin have offered up nuances that have altered the Southern Governor path and are directly attributed to the uniqueness of the band.Some of the bigger success of the band has been featured in two local newspapers in 2010 and also interviewed on Berkley Springs, WV's WDHC 92.9 FM. In July 2011 the band won a battle of the bands in orange, Virginia, with the grand prize being able to open for a national act at Celebrate Virginia Live's concert series. In December 2011 the band opened for the national band "Jackyl" in Springfield, Virginia.
2012 marked a change in the band with dropping the three guitars and going to a two guitar bass and drums line up, and also brought a turning point, taking most of the year writing and refining their true sound and identity while still occasionally getting out and playing in the area. In June 2012 the band started recording demos at their rehearsal space to send to Black Stone Cherry's front man Chris Robertson. Those demos would later be recorded at the Music is Me Recording Studio in Glasgow, Kentucky. The studio is owned and operated by Black Stone Cherry members Ben Wells & Jon Lawhon, and fellow BSC crew members Ryan "Jonesy" Gorman, & John "Shep" Shepherd. Taking the producer role on the recording was Chris Robertson. The album is yet to be named however it does have a tentative release date of spring 2013.
Front by the ever-exciting Jay Powell, Barcode delivers a mixture of hard rock, metal, catchy cover remakes, and originals.
Troublemaker is the best Rock cover band in the world. Don't believe it? Just ask them! Collectively sporting the most dynamic range of musical, and life experience of any band around, they bring high energy to every performance of popular rock music from the last 4 decades - including professional level sound and lighting.
