FRIDAY, AUGUST 30th
Shallow Side is a rock band through and through. Combining the driving rhythms that push the core of pop music with aggressive guitar work, carefully constructed bass passages, and a voice that smashes into focus atop the platform laid down by the music, Shallow Side has crafted a new sound with the same “no holds barred” attitude that has kept rock n roll alive and kicking since its inception.
Shallow Side continues to push the envelope, providing a viable outlet for anyone looking for the future of hard rock.
MICHAEL ALEXANDER & BIG WHISKEY
Michael Alexander & Big Whiskey is “Middle-Western Rock” a blend of Southern Rock, Country Rock, Rock and Outlaw Country. Their wide range of influences include: Guns and Roses, Johnny Cash, Lynyrd Skynrd Bob Dylan, Garth Brooks, Waylon Jennings, Metallica, Willie Nelson, Eric Church, Blake Shelton, Kid Rock, Social Distortion, Jackyl, Jack White, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Megadeth, Slayer, The Beastie Boys, NWA, Eminem, Pearl Jam, U2, Peter Frampton, Poison, and Mötley Crüe.
Since blazing onto the rock scene, Silvertung have proven that hard work, grit and great songs are still the recipe for success in the competitive hard rock landscape. With three albums and one EP released, they’ve amazed fans and critics alike by hitting the Billboard Mainstream Rock Radio Chart three times with their singles – “Never Too Late,” “Face The Music” and “You & Me”.
The band’s music videos have garnered over 1.5 million+ YouTube views and are still climbing. In addition, the band received two Maryland Music Awards – “Best Heavy Metal Band” and “Breakout Artist.” Silvertung performed live at the televised event.
Forging an original sound while not directly copying one’s influences is never an easy feat, but it’s a skill upstate South Carolina’s Broken Testimony have mastered to a T. Their recipe for supreme sonic success is as follows: Place equal parts Breaking Benjamin, Tool, Alice in Chains, and Chevelle into a rock-driven transmogrifier, press blend, and subsequently create new music that is notably hard-hitting, melodic, and catchy all at once. “We’re trying to mold multiple different sounds and genres into our music,” explains BT’s lead vocalist and lead guitarist Judge Page. “We pull together stuff from alternative indie rock to heavy metal to classic rock, and it all falls in together really well.”
