While singing his own hilariously politically incorrect songs, Unknown Hinson plays
guitar in a style incendiary enough to have Satan himself reaching for the
antiperspirant. But don't dismiss him as a novelty act. He's one hell of a talent andhas the music to prove it!
Looking somewhat like Dracula's nasty little brother who spent some hard years
drinking and working as a carnival barker for a second-rate freak show, Unknown
Hinson translates that vibe to his style of country and western-tinged psychobilly.
The band is now touring nationwide, wowing audiences with outrageous and
campy, white-trash persona and freewheeling, sleazy tone.
Hinson’s most recent CD release, "Live and Undead", melds weepy twang, searing guitar riffs and lyrics that speak of love-gone- bad. Recorded at a sold-out show, an enthusiastic honky tonk crowd sings along with the King on every song. Raucous,theatrical and over-the- top, Unknown Hinson isn’t just for the trailer park set
Unknown is gaining international notoriety in the 14-34 demographic as the voice of
lead character "Early Cuyler" in the popular show from Cartoon Network -
"Squidbillies". The first four seasons were so well-received that an immediate green light was given to future seasons. Check website for dates and time slots.

Brothers Mike Shaw (bass, vocals) and Jack Shaw (drums) and Jacob Morrell (guitars) have been jamming together since high school, writing and performing original songs inspired by the bands they love: trippy Brits like Stone Roses, Spiritualized, Ride, The Verve and Echo and the Bunnymen, and moody Americans like The National, Scott Walker and early R.E.M.
The Head have released two records, Millipedes (2015) and Space (2017), and have headlined tours throughout the U.S. and U.K. They’ve also shared the stage with The Brian Jonestown Massacre, Lucy Dacus, The Glorious Sons and Primal Scream, to name a few. In between touring, The Head continue to record and release singles.
"The alterna-rock quintet, which comprises lead singer Will “Harsh” Hoag, guitarist Ryan “Ryu” Ulibarri, bassist Mitch Whittaker, guitarist and keyboardist Luke Hamrock, and drummer Henry Morris, are still navigating the hallways of their high school when they’re not working on Cousin Simple business. But after the aspiring musicians claimed top honors at Groove U’s Instaband competition last February, their extra-curricular dance cards have filled up rather quickly. Since then, they’ve become regulars on the Columbus club and festival circuit, including stage time at Skully’s, Columbus Arts Fest, Slice of Columbus, and CoHatch.
At the end of September, And We Would Never End arrived – a solid, cohesive collection of songs that are especially strong vehicles for Hoag’s youthfully gritty vocal. The guitar-drenched groove “Son Of A Gun” and the effervescently singable “Detroit” particularly stand out. There’s a delightful absence of unnecessary production gloss, allowing the band to present themselves organically as an outfit that is still growing and finding its feet. And it’s great."

“Really funny, and just downright entertaining” is how Saving Country Music described them. Columbus Free Press called them “the musical equivalent of watching ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’ – you laugh, you feel deep shame, and then you laugh again.”
With their 2014 debut album, “Dumb Country Noise,” the HELLROYS announced themselves to the world. Tracks like “Wedding at Walmart” and “Outlaws Don’t Read,” quickly established the HELLROYS as a hilarious, twang-banging, must-hear band. After making a name in the regional clubs, the HELLROYS released their 2nd album "HELLROYS Is Real" and hit the national stage in 2018 when Sirius XM Outlaw Country radio put their hit "I Don't Do No Drugs,” into heavy rotation.
The HELLROYS now tour the world singing songs of snakes, titties, and Siamese twins. They have found themselves sharing the stage with artists such as Whitey Morgan, Dale Watson, Unknown Hinson, and Dallas Moore.
With the support of their fans, the HELLROYS have become America's Favorite Country Mid-Western Band and yes, the sole purveyors of Dumb Country Noise.

The Weight Band originated in 2013 inside the famed Woodstock, New York barn of Levon Helm when Jim Weider and Randy Ciarlante — both former members of The Band — performed “Songs of The Band” with Band founder, Garth Hudson, alongside Jimmy Vivino and Byron Isaacs. Inspired to carry on the legacy of the unforgettable rock group, Weider (guitar, mandolin, vocals), Ciarlante and Isaacs began performing fan favorites from The Band catalog to audiences across the country, inviting Marty Grebb (keyboards, organ, horns, vocals) and Brian Mitchell (keyboards, organ, accordion, vocals) to complete their sound. The Weight Band later added Albert Rogers (bass, vocals) and Michael Bram (drums, vocals) to make up their current lineup with Weider, Mitchell and Grebb. Together, after four years of touring, The Weight Band has recorded a new album of original material, capturing The Band’s musical tradition and packaged for today’s vibrant Americana base.The Weight Band’s musical connections to The Band run deep. Replacing Robbie Robertson as a member of The Band in 1985, Weider toured internationally with Levon Helm, Garth Hudson and Rick Danko. His tenure included writing for and recording three studio albums with The Band. Weider and Brian Mitchell are also members of Levon Helm's Midnight Ramble Band. Five time Grammy-award winner Brian Mitchell is highly regarded in the music industry. Marty Grebb, formerly with The Buckinghams and who has performed with Leon Russell, Bonnie Raitt, and countless others, contributed to both The Band’s Jericho and Jubilation albums. Albert Rogers shared the stage with Helm and Hudson in The Jim Weider Band. Michael Bram joined The Weight Band after seven years touring with Jason Mraz.
Recently the group released their first full-length studio album, World Gone Mad, an Americana/Roots Rock masterpiece of the Woodstock sound. The acclaimed album features special guest, Jackie Greene, as well as co-writing contributions from Levon Helm.
