  • Vintage Century

Probably an unknown name to many, but these guys formed in 2008. A very young group of talented musicians, most having many years of musical education. Their music is rock oriented but what does it sound like? let’s find out!

Covering for bands like Pink Floyd, Scorpions, Lynnard Skynnard + originals.

  • The Coolcumbers

Another very young group, with most members having started on their instruments at extremely young age. This band will play a variety of covers and originals influenced by a wide range of styles! Their cover list includes artists such as King of Leon, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Muse, Coldplay, and U2.

  • Divine Vanity

A relatively new band but already gaining fast reputation, Divine Vanity’s music is a progressive & psychedelic mix creating a somewhat unique and new sound.

Covering Dream Theater, Liquid Tension Experiment + originals.

  • Revery

Another fresh band but with individually experienced members and promising future. Starting off as a jam but turned serious, their music is a blend of hard/heavy, melodic, and bluesy sounds! This will be the band’s first live performance!
