The Kalob Griffin Band, better known to its devoted fans as the KGB, is a Pennsylvania bred, Philadelphia based outfit of Americana rock n’ rollers who strive to provide listeners on and off stage with an energetic and unique “KGB family” experience. Kalob Griffin (vocals/guitar), Rob Dwyer (guitar/mandolin/banjo), Eric Lawry (drums/vocals), John Hildenbrand (keyboards/vocals), and Jonathan Davenport (electric/upright bass) create a sound and live show that’s built around a variety of influences, tapping into multiple genres. The crew and their close knit team are centered in what the great pioneers stood for-hard work, good times, and building a community.
Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, the seven piece “Reggae / Rap / Rock” fusion, Shrub, has been rapidly gaining momentum and building a solid international fan base in the paddling and outdoor adventure community. Recently, Shrub released their first full-length album, Highceratops, which debuted in the Top 10 on the iTunes Reggae Charts. The album features guest appearances by C-Money from Slightly Stoopid, Dubmatix, and Kimberly Freeman from One-Eyed Doll. The band garners comparisons to artists like Sublime, The Dirty Heads, Atmosphere, Gym Class Heroes, and G. Love, but Shrub maintains an innately unique and raw sound all their own. With the addition of new guitar player, Kevin Oliver (former member of the world's funkiest band, Parliament/Funkadelic - George Clinton), Shrub's sound has now quickly become full-grown!
