Brothers In Arms Band

Brothers in Arms Band originates from Dayton. The band began their journey in 1992 with founding members, twin brothers, Bryan and Brad Knapp. The line-up of the band has changed over time, but the current line-up has been in tact since 2005. The band consists of lead singer and lead guitar player Craig Brooks, supported by Bryan Knapp on drums and percussion, Brad Knapp on bass guitar and backup vocals and Sean Marrujo on rhythm guitar and backup vocals. The foursome is driven by influences favoring classic rock and the soulful, full-bodied arrangements of southern rock.

The Pullouts

Led by singer-songwriter Scott Houchens, The Pullouts are a five-piece band from Dayton. With two album releases of original material under their belt, the band’s focus is piano-rock and includes flavors of country and pop. The band performs original music and covers during live shows. The band is currently working on a follow-up to 2017's "Knights of the Morning After," aiming for a spring 2020 release.


Grenades!? delivers fast-paced rock songs with a throwback sound. Founding members Mike Patak, Daniel Madero and Andrew Chenault collaborated and created the foundation, and Josh Moody and Tyler McKinley round out the five-some.


The Cincinnati-based dream-pop trio has been crafting meticulously layered soundscapes since their formation in 2015. Haunting vocals, hypnotic piano, and intricate rhythms sprinkled with carefully crafted electronic elements build into a whirlwind of sound that is unique. Formerly of Vanity Theft, lead vocalist and pianist Alicia Grodecki is backed by a rhythm section consisting of Aaron Hardy and Patrick Hague. The trio is currently touring in support of their debut EP, “Asleep/Repeat/Awake,” while simultaneously writing and recording their sophomore release.

M. Ross Perkins

M. Ross Perkins, a neo-psychedelic pop/rock musician from Dayton, delivers music reminiscent of 60s and early 70s pop.
