"NOWAKE started as a vision by local guitarist Sean McHargue in 2007. He wanted to launch a band that not only put on a great live show, but also wrote original rock music that could connect and reach a larger audience. The band has released two studio albums ("Getaway" in 2014 and "An Act of Defiance" in 2017) and has played countless shows in Missouri, Illinois, Iowa and Kansas.
The band features Mark Kempker as lead singer, Austin Birkhead and Sean McHargue as guitarists / backup vocalists, Ryan Gilmore on bass guitar and Mark VanWinkle on drums."

The Flood Brothers are a three-man THUMP MACHINE who’s infectious melodies and hypnotic rhythms will have your bones shakin’ outta your boots! Playing in several blues bands with the kin of blues legend, R.L. Burnside, the Flood Brothers still crank out energetic originals across the country. Influenced by rock, folk, country and Deep Blues, the Brothers add their own bend to the boogie that could only come from the muddy banks of the Mississippi River.

Rubik’s Cubes, Pac-Man, skinny ties and leg warmers—That 80s Band brings back the sound of the 80s Pop/Rock/New-Wave era. Comprised of Valerie Girl (Lead Vocals/Guitar), Mick Fly (Bass/Vocals), Jon Dohnson (Keyboards/Vocals), Izzy Furreel (Lead Guitar/Vocals), and Rod Springfield (Drums), That 80s Band is a fun, high-energy recreation of the 80s music

This is not a modern version of everyone’s favorite 80s tunes. This is as close to going back in time as humanly possible without a Flux Capacitor and plutonium.

The experienced line-up has the capabilities (and gnarly wardrobe) to cover the most popular (Madonna, Rick Springfield) to the nostalgic one-hit wonders (Aha, Tommy Tutone). So, dig out your parachute pants, fingerless gloves, jackets with lots of zippers, practice your moonwalk, and check out this band…They’re like, totally tubular!
