Reign In Bedlam
Reign In Bedlam
Born of members of a couple other local projects, R.I.B was created with two ideas in mind: Inspirational creativity and content that focused on the chaos that haunts the lives of human beings as we are today.

Reign in Bedlam started out in 2012 under the name Cursed @ Birth. After inner turmoil threatened the life of the project, Reign In Bedlam continued on, with a slight lineup change, under the name Message in Chaos. After cementing the current lineup, the decision was made to build the project under the name Reign In Bedlam.

In 2014, Reign In Bedlam opened its first show at a memorial show for a fellow local metal supporter. They received such an enthusiastic response that the promoter of the upcoming Capital City Chaos, Adam Ray, offered them a slot at Capital City Chaos V. In attendance at CCC V was Indie Grace Promotions owner, Melissa Mays, and after some talks with her, I.G.P and R.I.B. agreed to work together. A day later Melissa officially welcomed Reign In Bedlam to the Indie Grace family. Now, Reign In Bedlam stands prepared to record its first offering, and is currently booking shows to create a buzz and support the recording.
Smart Alecs
Smart Alecs
Smart Alecs is Punk/Ska band from Jackson, MI. Bringing a different atmosphere to the music scene and bringing back the surprises and fun of live shows. With catchy lyrics and upbeat sound there is no way you can stand still.

We are the losers, we are the stoners, we are the rejects and we don't give a damn. We just like to have one hell of a time.
Day Sleeper
Day Sleeper
If Day Sleeper were a planet, its atmosphere would consist of vintage psychedelia. The force is strong with this one.
Earth and Sea
Earth and Sea
Earth and Sea was formed in late 2015 by guitarist/vocalist Anthony Timlin and drummer Joey South. The band recruited guitarist Billy Massey in early 2016 and brought on Joey’s brother Ben South to fill in the sound on bass shortly after. Earth and Sea is currently in the recording process for their debut EP set to be released early 2017.
Heart Of Jordan
Heart Of Jordan
In 2017, a group of 5 seasoned musicians formed in the vein of metal and hard rock influenced by legends spanning decades, and contemporaries alike. In less than a year we have wasted no time making our mark, sharing the stage with touring national acts like 36 Crazyfists, Righteous Vendetta, Otherwise, and Vyces. Our hook laden arrangements speak of lost love, lingering hate, constant turmoil, and tribulations of the human condition. In the same breath, our songs will grind and embrace you without apology. This is just the beginning. We are Heart of Jordan.
Gigantaur
Gigantaur
Gigantaur blends the classic styles of bands like Cream, The Jimi Hendrix Experience, and Led Zeppelin with a more modern sound in the style of Queens of the Stone Age and Stone Temple Pilots. The band draws on a wide range of influences from jazz, funk, and r&b to grunge, punk, and stoner rock. They try to create fun music that grooves. Their primary goal is to create music that they would want to listen to.
