Humans Playing Instruments

Humans Playing Instruments is a band based in the New York City area consisting of Quinn Blandford on drums, Max Stehr on bass, and Chris Aiello on alto saxophone and electronics. Quinn (a native of Frankfort,) Max, and Chris all met through William Paterson University of New Jersey, where all three studied music. While firmly rooted in the jazz tradition, this is not your traditional jazz band, it is instead best described as Humans Playing Instruments.

Storefront Congregation

Storefront Congregation is a Louisville-based band known for their tight harmonies, fast picking, smooth sounds, and gritty rhythms. They pull inspiration from all types of music. Both standards and original material blend in a unique sound to satisfy any musical appetite.

The Ridgewood Boys

Building on riveting father-son harmonies and a sound way bigger than two instruments should be able to make, the Ridgewood Boys make music that conjures up an Appalachian Sunday afternoon spent sitting on the front porch with friends and family. Chris and Rick Saenz love the old gospel songs, the ones you've known forever and the ones you haven't heard yet. Listening to the Ridgewood Boys sing is sure to lift your spirit and put a song in your own heart.
