Off The Ledge
Off The Ledge
“Good times call for great music.” Off The Ledge current lineup came together in early 2015 with diverse musical backgrounds, and quickly morphed into a cohesive unit, creating a signature sound to their mix of funky, folky, blues influenced, alterna-rock jazziness. Personally, the guys don’t take themselves too seriously and at the onset, their biggest ambition was making each other laugh. Don’t be fooled by that, the musical complexity, instrumentation and each member’s proficiency quickly grabs your attention and speaks volumes about who they really are.

Live performances incorporate an electric mix of original music and covers that showcase their affable personalities and many influences, ranging from Dave Matthews Band, Jack White, Beatles, Led Zeppelin, CCR, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Mumford & Sons, Albert King, & Muddy Waters. The band are experts at intelligently engrossing the crowd with “catchy” tunes with a broad appeal, making for active crowd participation, and an inclusive, “feel good” show. Matt Shannon (lead vocals, guitar), Tab Wakley (lead guitar), Luke Dahlstrom (bass), and Eric Brandes (drums) comprise the band.
Stereo Whiplash
Stereo Whiplash
Stereo Whiplash was founded by Dakota Lawhon and Drew Rodriguez in Drew's grandmother's basement in early 2012. On a journey to start the band, the first name was "Solo Riot". Came up with by the former 2nd guitarist Tyler Hampton. Due to internal feud the band disbanded and in November became "Go Station" with the addition of Nikola Milosavljevic on Bass guitar. With the creation of the foundation of the band, we looked up to find a front man. And after a few hours of messing around, the close friend of ours became the front man. And that friend was Trevor Clark. After trial and error we grew our sound from AC/DC, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, and Jimi Hendrix. We decided to change our name of the band to something that fit our style. "Stereo Whiplash". This the band we are today and look to not to only bring back rock, but to make a kind of our own
