Stoop Kids
Stoop Kids are a psychedelic jukebox: they write and play inside a melting pot of genres, re-imagining the last 75 years of popular music.

Stoop Kids' sound is an eclectic mix of soul, hip-hop, surf, jazz, and rock with a psychedelic aftertaste. This, combined with their high-energy, theatrical, performances, makes Stoop Kids unique and unpredictable. While based in New Orleans, the band has toured extensively throughout the eastern United States over the past two years and plans to expand upon that. Their sophomore album, Already Out of Time, was described as "a genre-bending masterpiece" and "an essential album of 2015".

The group is fronted by Griffin Dean singing, rapping, dancing, playing guitar, and writing the majority of the music. He is backed by Thomas Eisenhood (Baritone Saxophone, Harmonies), Sam Fruend (Bass, Harmonies), David Paternostro (Keys, Guitar), and Joe Tontillo (Drums). The five-piece band has independently released two albums and self-booked over 200 shows over the three years since their inception.
Stop Light Observations
Born and raised in Charleston, SC SLO (Stop Light Observations) is an innovative Rock group whose heart lies in their story. Starting the band at only 13 years old, this young group of childhood friends thrives on a deep connection with their audience to share an ignition of inner truth. With soulful vocals, refreshingly conscious lyrics, and a dynamic use of instruments SLO provides an explosive live performance that is sending SLO on their way to be a top national act.

As a testament to SLO's loyal fans (the Purple Purple), this completely independent 23 year old band has managed to sell-out their hometown (900 cap) venue six times straight, opened for Avett Brothers, Ed Sheeran, Cheryl Crow, played Bonnaroo, Firefly, Summerfest, SXSW, CBGB Music Festival, and many more.

SLO is currently mixing their new live tracked album with plans to release and tour it this coming Spring.
