Ginada Pinata

Ginada Pinata taps the influences of jazz, funk, rock, fusion, trance and drum and bass, blending them to create an organic vibe that continually entertains and excites audiences at each and every show. Founded in Shepherdstown, WV in 1998 (and getting funkier all the time) Ginada has relentlessly pushed the musical envelope in search of new sounds and feels. The result is a stylistic collage which truly sets them apart in their genre. 2001 brought the release of “Talking to the Boss,” a recording which at once highlighted the musicianship of the group while serving as the musical template from which they have evolved into one of the area’s most formidable improvisational groups. Over the years Ginada Pinata has played many festivals and clubs including Opera House Live, Sunshine Daydream, 123 Pleasant St., The Barns of Wolftrap, The Velvet Lounge and countless other music venues in the greater Mid-Atlantic region. Their drive is to produce a live show which consistently redraws the boundaries of the traditional quartet – and they’re only getting started.

Blue Heaven is an indie pop band from Frederick, MD. From an interview with their drummer Matt Full: "When we first started the project we kept using the term “Dream Pop”. We wanted to write music with a specific alternative vibe in mind. We didn’t want to write mainstream pop music, and we also didn’t want to write specifically Indie Rock. We wanted to land right in the sweet spot between the two and write music that had the alternative influenced with the polished sound of pop. This is something The Cure accomplished long ago. They are a big inspiration to us."

3rd Grade Friends (Mathrock meets Chaotic Punk + Throwback Prog solos)

3rd Grade Friends is a power duo appropriately composed of third grade friends, Rob and Joe. Rob’s polyrhythmic drums sync perfectly with Joe’s hypnotic guitar work proving both are masters of their instruments. Their music is a juxtaposition of structured mathrock and chaotic punk, combined with long spacey throw back prog solos. And none of this will make sense, but when you see the chemistry of these old friends and combine it with the elementary school themed song names, you’ll laugh and cry as you remember recess with your old friends. Maybe you’ll call those old playground pals, meet up and discuss the old days, rekindling a friendship you both once forgot. And then you can look back and say “it was all thanks to 3rd Grade Friends”. - Eric Disque, Spiritual Advisor

Third Grade Friends are Joe Martin (doorman at the Metropolitan, Northernmost) and Robin Eckman (Pompeii Graffiti, Softeyes, Elder Statesmen, soihadto, hONe) who met in third grade in the 80s on the playground. In the late 90s they met up again and formed an improv/experimental band, Herd of Wookies which frequently played Annapolis and Baltimore. Now the 10s they reunite again to shoot music from the hip and blow the smoke from the instruments.

“Community Center's music is a striking display of talent and chemistry, soothing and anthemic. This dichotomy creates an experience that I find myself wanting to repeat on an infinite loop.” - Too Good For Radio

 “Community Center boasts a cast of multi-instrumentalists who don't shy from tag team vocal work and sound as if they are making music simply for the pleasure of it.” - Those Who Dig

Stefan Edward (Folk/Rock)

"Stephan Edward is the latest in the pantheon of singer/songwriters hailing from the well established music scene in Frederick, MD. Not satisfied with the traditional structure of the entertainment industry, Stephan decided to blaze his own trail, in true DIY fashion.

With a sound that's reminiscent of independent trailblazers like Tim Buckley and Dispatch, Stephan is a thoughtful lyricist. Add to that the catchy melodies and self contained foot-tapping rhythms that drive the lyrics, and you've end up with a solo artist that can keep a room captivated."

Silent Old Mtns (Theatrical Indie Folk Rock with Exceptional Songwriting)

Silent Old Mtns (Silent Old Mountains) is an American indie rock band, formed in Frederick, Maryland in 2011 by singer songwriter Andrew Bromhal. They have released one full-length album and are most noted for their energetic and theatrical live shows.[1] They are also well known for their promotion of the indie music scene and DIY ethic:[2] touring the country in a repurposed school bus[3] and averaging over 100 live performances per year despite having no corporate backing.[4] DC Rock Live music blog's David Hintz describes their sound as "a whacked out brand of Americana folk rock that dives headlong into psyche terrain frequently."

Megan Jean & The KFB (A Voice Like The Devil Herself)

Hard-touring, foot-stompin', guitar beatin, upright lickin, washboard scratchin,' banjo pickin' madness with a voice like the devil herself.

Megan Jean and the KFB, or Klay Family Band, arrange a demented blend of americana, punk, dance, and the avant-garde that they’ve taken to describing as, “a metal band, if it was 1927.”

Inventive percussion, electrified banjo, and a voice like the Devil Herself have earned Megan Jean and the KFB a dedicated following all over the East Coast. Calling the road home on a “never-ending tour,” this transient married duo has taken their nomadic musical lifestyle and transformed it into a kind of Voodoo that unites scenes, fans, and musical styles. This is a band that lives to perform, and is fueled by sheer guts and know how.
