Must Stash Hat
Must Stash Hat
A Must Stash Hat show feels like it lasts for days while you're in it but when they end their last note, everyone is still screaming for ten more songs. Your body won't stop moving while they transition from an upbeat rocking chorus into a jazzy and relaxing hypnotic refrain before stretching it out, twisting it up into outer space and verging ever so close to awkward before exploding back in a most satisfying cymbal ridden rhythm, bass slappin' and bappin' on the hips of high laughing guitar chords pulling at the off beats.

Must Stash Hat is a three piece Toronto based jam band and the best way to see them is live and unshaven. Over 10 years of playing together, their talent for improvisation is powerful. These moustache men know each other too well to miss a beat.
Near East
Near East
Near East invents their own world-music convention, by bringing together several world music traditions. The Inception of Near East's Music begins in, Maqam and Iqa' of the Middle East and Greece, gives way to the raga and tala concepts of North and South India ultimately evolving into group improvisation. From those foundations, Near East harvests a fresh sound, familiar yet surprising. The roots simply cross - pollinate on their own, evolving without additives, without taking anything away.
Jackson Howard
Jackson Howard
Distinguished by interesting and intricate acoustic guitar and floating vocals with a touch of blue-eyed soul, Jackson Howard’s songs grab your ears and your soul in captivating ways. In an age when lyrics are losing their importance, Jackson puts the poetry back into songwriting while remaining universally relatable.
In April of 2014, Jackson released his first EP A Place to Cross to a packed house at Blueberry Hill in St. Louis a few days after making his first television appearance on Fox2 News. Over the next year he gained momentum locally performing several times a week throughout the greater St. Louis area. That July, Jackson went back to the studio to begin work on his first full length album “About Life”, released on January 2nd 2015 at Off Broadway in St. Louis as well as at an East Coast release at Harrisburg Midtown Arts Center in Pennsylvania.
In the summer of 2015, a song from About Life caught the attention of Grammy-nominated producer Billy Smiley. By September the two were recording a new album at Dark Horse Studios in Franklin, TN. The album (set to be released in the spring of 2017) boasts the talents of Johnathan Crone, Daniel O’Lannerghty, Andre DiMuzio, Jared Kneale (drums – Kacey Musgraves, Ben Rector); sound engineering by Billy Whittington (Amy Grant), Ritchie Biggs (Civil Wars, Lone Below), and Billy Smiley (White Heart, Newsboys), and production by Billy Smiley.
