Briz and The Revival
Briz and The Revival
Briz and The Revival is an energetic r&b/soul band, with a passionate vocalist and dynamic rhythm section that charms and captures every audience with their sound.

Nourished by Philly Soul, Briz and The Revival formed shortly after the release of Briz's independent project “Love And Light” (2016), which Grammy award winning producer Keith Pelzer reviewed: “Love the lyrics, flow and style. Great pen!”

2016 continued to be an exciting year of live performances with the height being the QVC Christmas Parade in West Chester, PA with a crowd of 30,000 people! In 2017 the band lit up the Groove Stage during the Wawa Welcome America - July 4th celebration on the Ben Franklin Parkway.

Members of the band hail from Coatesville and Philadelphia, PA. Their live sets thrill as they move through different genres. Flawlessly fusing r&b, jazz, rock and funk. Their music is honest and alive.
Kilroy Kobra
Atlanta psych rock outfit, Kilroy Kobra, known for their eclectic, genre-bent art rock music - emotionally rip through their high energy performances with deeply, personal lyricism masked under groovy rhythms and vibes. After presented with the question, “What if there was a band for these songs,” vocalist and lead guitarist Tomas Uribe, formed the group in late December of 2015. Previous to there being a band, Tommy had an album's worth of music that he had written and recorded on his own for a personal achievement but with the encouragement of his friends and family, he was convinced that he needed a band to fulfill the vision of his songs. The band's multi-cultured, genre-bent style came out of Tommy's experiences of growing up internationally, ultimately developing a wide palette for music - although there was always an inclination to psych rock of all forms. Once there was band put together, the sound of Kilroy Kobra started to take its own shape.

The band started to rerecord Tommy's album at Nova-One Studio in Kennesaw, Georgia with producer/audio engineer Lorenzo Price and throughout the process, managed to recruit a 7 person band and released a teaser self-titled EP in early May 2016. After debuting performances around Atlanta and Tuscaloosa, Alabama - the band focused on finishing their debut album that was released independently in September 2016 as "Man of the World", along with perfectly synchronized music video to the album in its entirety named "Man of the World - A Visual Album" (released March 2017) written and directed by Zak Washburn.

Since their album release, they grew to a 10 person band who toured their debut album together. Due to monetary and logistic reasons, they do not tour currently as the full 10 person band. Most of the time, they are a 7 person group despite the fact people remember them by being a large 10 person band!

Since the movie release of their visual album, they have performed at many Southeastern cities from Alabama to North Carolina to Ohio back to Atlanta and music festivals like Candler Park Fall Fest, Sigh in July Music and Arts Festival, Adjust Your Eyes Music & Art Fest, Alphapalooza, and more. The band throughout Summer 2017, have been debuting new music written as a collective group.
Shadowplay is a rock/alternative band based in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey. The roots of the group can be traced back to playing music in the year 2006, at the age of 14. Together, Lead Singer, Andrew Corkery, and Guitar player, Dan Holden, officially founded Shadowplay in 2009.

Since then they have been going non-stop in the music scene, gaining traction and sustaining success ever so rapidly. In 2011, they released their official "Ghost Train" EP, featuring the respectively named single and 7 other songs. These tracks would later be rerecorded in addition to newer material for the release of their first album "Visions", which would be released in 2012.

The local and personal success of constant performing of the groups early material at the time got them connected with Ted Richardson in Philadelphia, PA, with whom they produced the single "Sandy Eyes" in 2013, in response to Hurricane Sandy which tore through the bands home the year prior. The group then began opening up for such notable acts as Tracii Guns of (LA Guns, and Guns and Roses), and Doug Wimbish of (Living Colour), Hoobastank, even completing two national tours of their own. Now after four years of working on new music, touring, and working diligently, the band has once again teamed up with Richardson to release their second full length LP. The album is titled "Almost Lifelike" and was recently released be on June 21st, 2016. It brings out a much more mature level of craftsmanship in relationship to the bands early work, and they are eager for everyone to hear it. The first single "Empty Skeleton" has been made available for streaming along with the album on Spotify, SoundCloud, and bandcamp.
Night Bloom
Night Bloom is the Philadelphia based musical project of J Termini and Patrick Schlitzer. The long time collaborators met while studying graphic design, and began performing audio/visual compositions under J's musical project, Telequanta. When the two formed Night Bloom, a new approach was taken to the duo's creative process in the form of a band featuring Pat on lead vocals and J's production taking a more R&B and lo-fi hip hop influence. The two also write and perform with friends and frequent band mates Joe G (guitar) & Joe K (drums) as well as other to create a live show and lineup that is constantly evolving.
