From Jackson, TN, LOLO is a show-stopping singer who has
"so much music flowing through [her] that it fills two
people" (Associated Press). She has proven herself a venerable
songwriter, from penning hits for Panic! At The Disco’s recent
#1 blockbuster album to writing a New York Times raved about
off-Broadway musical, “Songbird” — a perfect segue from
LOLO's past role as the originator of Ilse in the critically-
acclaimed smash musical “Spring Awakening.” Her album, In
Loving Memory of When I Gave a Shit, is a come-to-Jesus
moment for the songstress who moved back to Tennessee after
exploring her path on the stages of New York and time in
London - a literal reflection of LOLO's journey on the road back
home, which paints the picture of a woman who is finally able to
shine and be her true self. With a daring and emotionally
charged voice, her music evokes a hot southern night – rough
around the edges but with a velvety quality that soothes the soul.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org for booking inquiries.
