The Way Down Wanderers:
Often referred to by fans as one of the hardest-working, hardest-touring bands on the circuit today, the 5-piece Illinois-based act not only proves that classification with their jam-packed tour schedule but also on stage every night, with youthful exuberance and a lively stage show, as reliable as it is infectious. High energy percussion, mandolin, guitar, bass, banjo and fiddle weave seamlessly together to create an experience for fans that has sold out shows across the UK and the United States, filling the front rows with fans not just singing along to one tune, but singing along to all of them. “Everybody says it. We’d be nothing without our supporters. Yeah, they buy tickets and of course we love that, but when we’ve been on the road for 10 hours and walk onto a stage road weary and we see familiar faces singing along, it’s hard to describe. It's everything, really. There’s a whole lot of love there.”
Music enthusiasts are not the only ones taking note. Critics and tastemakers alike have awarded the young artists an impressive number of accolades ranging from official showcases at AmericanaFest (2018) and International Bluegrass Music Association (2016) to Whitstable UK Session of the Year (2017), a BBC Scotland Session (2017) as well as Finalist, International Song Writing Competition (2015 & 2016), Chicago’s Best Emerging Artist, Deli Magazine (2014) and Songpickr’s Best Songs Spotify Playlist (2016) among others. The young men are no strangers to the festival circuit either, having played major National and Regional Festivals such as Merlefest, Summer Camp, Red Wing Roots Music Festival and Saskatchewan Jazz Fest all across the United States, Canada and the UK. The band has also graced the stage of coveted venues such as Bluegrass Underground (TN), The Fox Theater (CO), Park West (IL), The Vogue (IN) The Station Inn (TN) The Ark (MI), and countless others.

Expanding the Palette of Jazz in Columbus
January 2018 (Columbus, Ohio)
Combining a blend of jazz styles, Silent Bell Quartet is a new project
from a familiar group of Columbus music scene veterans. The band has
showcased as part of the line-up of the Jazz Series at M, a Cameron
Mitchell restaurant in downtown Columbus. Tossing out older jazz
standards, they have developed their instrumentals of early legacy
album-oriented rock. This is classic rock re-imagined for saxophone,
guitar, bass and drums.
Silent Bell Quartet consists of members of the central Ohio band Trace
Marie & Blue Level. Their versatility of influences, drawn together by
Craig Fernandez’s sax improvisational flow, creates a sonic appeal that
will break new ground, adding to the landscape of great live music in
central Ohio. Guitarist, Bradley Scott notes, “We’ve performed an
evolving mix of familiar pop and original songs for over 10 years now.
The experience has led us to expand our sound in a new direction. We’re
proud to be part of Columbus’ musical tradition and ready to add some
new spice to the stew with this latest instrumental project.”
Tenor and soprano saxophonist Craig Fernandez states, “Our
arrangements are built on choosing great compositions from a particular
era of rock and pop in the 1960s and 1970s. I like to approach our songs
like a vocalist. An element of what I am attempting to do is to sing the
melody with my saxophone. ” Bassist, Adam Koltnow mentions, “This
classic rock jazz chill is perfect for many venues while giving the
listener a new way to view the heritage of a jazz standard.” Discover

Whirlybirds formed in 2016 when Joe Gilliland, former bandleader of The DewDroppers, decided to continue creating the kind of accessible, catchy, pop-swing sound the band was know for despite some members parting ways. With clarinet/saxophonist Joseph Brenneman and bassist Trent Sampson in tow he set out to construct a new project. With the addition of Nick Simko on trumpet, Max Marsillo on drums, and Jacob Campbell on keys, Whirlybirds was born.
The band quickly began to develop its own spin on the style, delving deeper into New Orleans style Dixieland and pre-WWII era jazz while still incorporating more modern elements of jazz, pop, soul, funk. The result is unique arrangements of original music (as well as standards/covers) designed to engage and entertain the audience in a high-energy, live show the audience won't soon forget.
Whirlybirds can be enjoyed by audiences of young and old, whether they be conessuers of jazz or simply casual concert goers. Dynamic enough for a small dinner engagement or full blown concert stage. Contact at email@example.com for booking inquiries.
Crawling out from the weed-choked lots of the once proud town, The Detroit Cobras whip out ass-shaking anthems to good times, wild times, and the high and lows of L-U-V-E; you best believe it and you best not mess with it. Singer Rachel Nagy and guitarist Mary Ramirez are the bad girls by the exit doors at the school dance, all leather and heels, sneaking smokes and passing the flask. They have no time for dewy-eyed love songs or girl group decorum; theyll take care of business themselves with a bat of the eye or an elbow to the kidney. Rachels warm as the bourbon under the seat of your car voice can boom to the back pews (Did we say "pews?" We meant "barstools") and Marys riffs let you know that love and good times can be found in the tilt of a hip or at the end of a fist.
