The Go Rounds:
The Kalamazoo quartet has been a dominant force in the Michigan music landscape for the last 5 years, releasing 4 LPs, 4 EPs, and playing countless Great Lakes music festivals including Wheatland Music Festival, Blissfest, Hoxeyville Music Festival, Earthwork Harvest Gathering, Farmblock Fest, Short’s Anniversary XII, Buttermilk Jamboree, Farmfest, Founder’s Fest, DunnDunn Fest, Traverse City Microbrew and Music Fest, Mile of Music, and Holler Fest. Some of the major acts The Go Rounds have supported include Greensky Bluegrass, Hard Working Americans, Vulpeck, Billy Strings, Keller Williams, Bruce Hornsby, Arlo Guthrie, Asleep at the Wheel, Mickey Hart, and Railroad Earth.
The songs are catchy, twangy, and trippy – led by the creative force of frontman Graham Parsons, whose spellbinding vocals weave through lush sonic textures as the band puts on a master class of intricate arrangements. Their powerful and dynamic live show has earned them a reputation as one of the best live bands in the Midwest.
Their last full-length, Don’t Go Not Changin’, made several 2015 year-end-best lists and earned them 3 WYCE awards, including the Special Jury Prize of Album of the Year. Their creativity shows no sign of slowing down. In August 2016, they released a new EP, I Promise I Won’t Get Hurt, and have another EP ready for release in March of this year. They are also working on their next full length – due out before the end of 2018.
Buffalo based Psychedelic Indie Art Rock band Aircraft make catchy pop tunes embedded with layers of thoughtful lyrics reminiscent of the past present and future. Founded somewhere between time and space Aircraft revolves around the observations of songwriter Justin John Smith. Years of experimental drug use combined with a deep interest in the mystical have created a unique take on the nature of reality that is expressed through the song craft. Lush vocal harmonies, swirling guitars (Ty Skelton), melodic bass lines (James Warren), and powerful drumming (Matt Cossman) create the perfect atmosphere for fragile vocals to float in. Aircraft released their debut album (((Sonic Boom))) in 2013 receiving enthusiastic reviews and prompted a promotional tour throughout the northeast.
