The Calamity Cubes
The Calamity Cubes
The Calamity Cubes! are a Kansas thrashicana band featuring guitar, banjo, and upright bass. They sing about love, drinking and murder, themes not unlike those found in the Bible.
The Ditchrunners
The Ditchrunners
Face Melting, High Octane Country!

"The Ditchrunners are beginning to make a ripple, no a cannonball, in the Great Lakes music scene. If you are wondering what kind of music to expect from these boys, think the opposite of radio stars such as Kenney Chesney and Toby Kieth. I would think more along the lines of Central Wisconsin rebel-rousing, whiskey-fueled, high-octane country." -Adam Greuel, HOOPLA Magazine

"From Stevens Point, these five guys must have had a love hate relationship with the country music they grew up with. They kept the country twang, and sometimes a bit of the hoe-down beat, but added a hard edge in the guitar work and palpable rebel-rousing attitude. Its more than Toby Keith country, but less than gritty southern metal, settling in a rebellious bluegrassy middle ground. Singing about whiskey, trucks, guns and girls, they sure know how to occasionally throw in some top notch vocal harmonies, without losing that outlaw edge." -City Pages

"A first listen to these northern Wisconsin boys and its clear that they were influenced by the likes of Johnny Cash, George Jones, Waylon Jennings, and many of the other bad ass country playing pioneers of the genre." -Tom Jordan

"In from Stevens Point, this rip-roaring country band will turn the Crystal Corner into the kind of roadhouse where one might find George Jones or the ghost of Johnny Cash!" -Isthmus
Slaughter Daughters
Slaughter Daughters
Wichita's Slaughter Daughters are a raw, soulful force to be reckoned with. Formed upon the fateful meeting of Cece Honey and Ari Rose, who together, front the band. Rounded out the inspiring mandolin work of Ari, and Cece holding it all together on rhythm guitar. The Slaughter Daughters hammer out modern day folk anthems about the dark side of life, with a heartfelt sincerity few others can match.

In the world of a working band there is no greater constant than the road. Few know this better than Adam Lee & the Dead Horse Sound Company, the Kansas City trio who put their original spin on that classic country sound. With the upcoming release of their sophmore album, 'When the Spirits Move Me,' Lee and company touch on many of the elements so familiar to their life on the road. From wild nights in far away towns, to barroom brawls and goodbye kisses, the band expertly explain their travelling life. All with the swingin' shuffles and country flair of your favorite 45's. But then again, winding highways and endless mile markers are something they know well. Upon completion of their first record, 'Ghostly Fires,' the band commenced a wide-spread and heavy touring schedule, playing over 100 shows and half of the US in their first year alone. Since the release of 'Ghostly Fires' the band has also spent a good deal of time refining their already unique sound. While their first album touches on the more subtle tones of Americana, 'When the Spirits Move Me' focuses on the band's affinity for classic country. Twelve tracks of heartbreaking honky tonk that sound right at home in the swingin beer joints and rural roadhouses the band often plays. Leading the way is Adam Lee whose basement baritone perfectly presents the highs and lows of life on the road. Joining Lee are Johnny Kay (electric guitar, mandolin) and Boomerang Dave Bruchmann (upright bass), and when this train starts a-chuggin, folks had better hold on. It's something that comes naturally to the band, just like the country music they play. While you may have heard country music, you've never heard (or seen) it like this. Their live show is a rowdy and rollicking good time full of all original honky tonk music -- songs to drink to, cry to, and most of all dance to. So bring a date, grab a drink, and don't forget your dancin' shoes. Adam Lee & the Dead Horse Sound Company are headed down the highway, and there's no end in sight.
