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.
Sinhaven
Sinhaven
Hard Rock/Heavy/Alternative Band from Mid Michigan area
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.
Nagazi
Nagazi
A new breed of metal music from central Michigan. A high-energy speed rock punk joyride!
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.
