DROWNING CLOWNS: Drowning Clowns is fast becoming a regional draw having hosted five free Revival Series shows at Mr. Smalls and being featured in numerous skateboard videos of Evan Smith, Drowning Clowns member and up-and-coming skateboarder (DC/Element/Independent). The band is a collaboration of Mr. Smalls’ owners Mike Speranzo (Crisis Car, Out Of The Blue) and Liz Berlin (of Rusted Root). Also Frank Spadafora (Crisis Car, Out Of The Blue), Dirk Miller (The Speeds, Rusted Root), Shaggy Marcello (The Distractions, Isabella, Love's Gun Shop), Nate Campesi (Airplane Graveyard) and Mike Hammer (Modus, Moving In Stereo, InSpiral).

With accompanying artists Daniel Collins on fiddle and Daryl Branford on drums, their original, artful arrangements are captured on a backdrop of textured synergy and rhythm.

Based out of St. Petersburg, Jason brings Travis Lacey, Jason Gilbert, and Sara Walter up north to his hometown. With a constantly growing cast of musicians, performers, and other artists, Lushbudget is rapidly defining itself as a dynamic, engaging, and visually rich live band.

Best known for their repertoire of bittersweet melodies bound by layered choruses, members Corry Drake, Leah Hohman-Esser, Mark Hohman, Nicholas Hohman, and Nick Conti have created a sound for Brewer’s Row described as “Rustbelt Americana”. To listen go to: http://www.brewersrow.com/flashsite/main.html DJ 404 ERROR: Jeremy Levin is a 13-year-old prodigy probably best known as the monster drummer for the young Pittsburgh band Lightning Box. An alumni of Creative.Life.Support’s “Real Life Music Camp”, Jeremy has been developing his DJ set for the last couple of years and has impressed us all with his natural ability to create moving soundscapes. To listen go to: https://soundcloud.com/404errorofficial TIM RUFF: Embarking on his professional music journey in the summer of 2010, singer-songwriter Tim Ruff eagerly bolted out of the gates with high hopes and a keen suspicion as to how his “acoustic crooner” style would go over in the real world. Tim’s shining personality (on and offstage) is quickly winning the hearts of listeners everywhere he plays. With songs filled with smiling melodies and jazzy chord progressions, this operatically trained musician with a taste for a sweeter sound and a shot of folk influence is often compared to artists Jason Mraz and Michael Buble.
