Action Item is an up & coming Pop band out of New Jersey. These five boys have been making a name for themselves all over the country with their refreshing sound, charm and charisma. You may have seen them open for Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez or on their two national tours supporting Hollywood Record's Allstar Weekend. They have also supported acts like Boys Like Girls, NeverShoutNever & The Veronicas along with festivals like Bamboozle and Warped Tour. The band released their 7 Song EP entitled "The Stronger The Love" August 2010. It debuted at #34 on Billboard's Heatseakers Chart & by December 2010 has sold over 8,000 copies. In November, the band's lead single, "Somewhere Out There" landed regular rotation on Radio Disney and is currently in the Top 15 on their Countdown. 2011 will without-a-doubt a breakout year for Action Item.
Denver band Air Dubai is more than the sum of its parts. It's not about the exciting combination of eclectic genres or even the explosive onstage energy. The group's appeal lies in its member's passion for the music they create, as well as their love for the people who come to see them perform. A heady mix of hip-hop, pop, soul, rock and electronic, Air Dubai exists not to fit into one specific category or sound, but instead to create something new and fresh on each album and even every song.
To date, the seven-piece has received numerous critical and commercial accolades: voted Westword magazine's "Best Hip Hop Band" of 2010, 2011 & 2012, winner of Channel 93.3 KTCL's 2011 "Hometown For The Holidays" competition, multiple songs featured on MTV's hit series Jersey Shore and in Hollister stores nationwide. The band has also shared the stage with a wide array of local and national artists, including OneRepublic, 3Oh!3 and Rise Against.
