Desmond Jones
Desmond Jones is a five-piece funk/rock/jazz fusion band from Grand Rapids, Michigan. With original music written to compliment the group's sound as a whole, the music is centered around melodic guitar riffs, smooth bass lines, funky drum beats, and some saxophone.

Since 2012 this unique group has played with groups like The Werks, Dopapod, Kung Fu, Jimkata, Tauk, The Verve Pipe, Badfish, Fareed Haque, Old Shoe and many more. The group takes influence from Frank Zappa, The Grateful Dead, Phish, Charles Mingus, The Band, and many more.

Desmond Jones puts on exciting and high energy shows and is proud to say that each set list and each song is different from show to show.
Maradeen
Maradeen is an American rock band based out of Nashville, Tennessee. Founded by guitarist, Whit Murray, in the summer of 2014 with keyboardist, Kaitlyn Connor, and bassist, Sterling Miller, the band formed their initial roots as a high energy rock n roll quartet. With classical and jazz improvisation backgrounds they forged and evolved a unique and well-versed sound. In 2015 Tom Galloway moved to Nashville for songwriting and began collaborations with Murray. The band entered the analog studio "Welcome to 1979" in the spring of 2015 and recorded their first full-length LP entitled, "Mirage". The album features the initial hard-hitting rockers from the band's formative stage while revealing the new songwriting dynamic between Murray and Galloway.

Although the band was new to the scene at this time, the origins of Maradeen run deep. Murray played lead guitar for Galloway's band, Mama's Love, between the years of 2009-12. During this time they toured nationwide, developed a devoted fanbase, and recorded with renowned producers Tom Tapley and John Keane. Galloway continued fronting Mama's Love while Murray extended his education at The Berklee College of Music. Mama's Love had shared the stage with the progressive rock band, Afro, several times in the past which featured Connor on keys. Connor met Miller through the MTSU music program where Miller majored in audio engineering and played with bands Harrison Anvil and The Bourbon Barrel Band. Whit met Russ Garner, who was also a Berklee College graduate, at an open jam in Nashville one evening. Garner played with the Larry Mitchell Band which had also crossed paths with Mama's Love in the past. A long line of history, coincidence, and mutual passion brought together the group, and they continue to make strides as they climb the mountain of music.

Deadeye Swagger
DEADEYE SWAGGER is a NYC-based band formed in late 2014 when Andrew Carson (drums) and Drew Joia (Lead Guitar/Vocals) met at a mutual friend’s show in Brooklyn and decided that life really wasn’t worth living without a rock band. They recruited Joe Warcholak (Lead Vocals/Rhythm Guitar) and Suraj Gopal (Bass) -- together, they gave birth to the Deadeye Swagger sound.

Influenced heavily by 90s grunge and the very best of rock and roll, Deadeye Swagger follows in the musical footsteps of artists like Nirvana, Hendrix, The White Stripes, Soundgarden, and Led Zepplin.
