Akron, Ohio’s Aliver Hall brings rock and roll to its happy place, while at the same time getting down and dirty. Anthemic, uplifting energy characterizes the group's live show, which continues to leave concertgoers wanting more and more, thanks to a fury of progressive rock drumming, tight bass lines that weave in and out of vintage-toned guitar rhythms, and lush vocal harmonies. Featuring as much heady structure and lyrical prowess as loose improvisation and jamband-inspired soloing, Aliver Hall is most at home on stage. Still, the band's debut studio effort, "Welcome to Aliver Hall," gained the attention of fans and critics alike in 2011 with its concept album structure and superior sound, and, in 2012, the band received critical acclaim for their live release, "Live Summer and Fall 2011," and their second studio effort, "Chasing the Rain." During this time and since, Aliver Hall has established themselves as an in-your-face rock act alongside their jamband roots, touring extensively and turning heads wherever they go.
"Aliver Hall is quickly gaining attention in Northeast Ohio for its jam-band ways.. [c]erebral stuff indeed." - Cleveland Plain Dealer
"Aliver Hall builds skyscraper songs that cement classic rock to granola grooves." - Cleveland Scene
Totojojo is a five-piece band out of the Midwest based in Jam, Funk, and Rock music. While keeping true to the excitement and freedom of improvisatory music, Totojojo utilizes a variety of rhythmic textures and tone colors to create a unique live experience for adventurous listeners. Totojojo challenges itself by attempting to harness their seemingly impossible range of influences into a cohesive sound. “We are really trying to stretch our imaginations both musically and lyrically while staying under an umbrella of groove.” says Bassist, Josh Zimmer.
Totojojo has been seen across the Midwest sharing stages with Roster McCabe, Passafire and Trevor Hall. Notable performances includes the Green Mountain Earth Day Celebration, the Dawg Daze of Summer festival, Eco Fest, Elderberry Jam, Yonder Mountain Harvest Festival, the Farm Jam festival, and Wakarusa.
Totojojo is currently working their way through the midwest in support of their live album, while working on their second studio album (anticipated release of spring 2014)
"Finding new sounds through old" is just one way to describe Friends of the Phamily's musical approach. Since their formation during the summer of 2008, the band has spent the past few years finding themselves and "searching for the sound" that has come to define them, musically. The band holds true to their name with an ever changing lineup comprised of friends that have come and gone for various reasons and has now, just recently, begun to level out to a steady 8-member outfit including two guitars, keyboards, drums, bass, auxiliary percussion, and vocals. FOTP will expand their musical horizons by creating original music from time to time, however the focus is primarily on their true love...the music of the Grateful Dead. There is something about the Grateful Dead's expansive catalog of music that is unique to any other band that has ever been. There is no putting a finger on any one element and saying, "this is what the Dead was all about." Instead, the exploratory nature that was intrinsic to their music is the essence of the spirit FOTP wishes to embody and carry on. The band's aim is to bring familiar sounds to those who hold the Dead's music dear, as well as open hearts and minds to something new if they have not had the opportunity to embrace it before...that, and to give the people a reason to dance, clap, chant, whirl, twirl, hoop, hoot, and holler for more!
