PROMO VIDEOS :
JIMI HENDRIX TRIBUTE BAND
A tribute to the legendary music of Jimi Hendrix: Travel back in time to hear the sound that electrified Woodstock and the Summer of Love… The sound that set off a whole generation of rock n’ roll electric guitar fans. Including material from The Jimi Hendrix Experience as well as from the Band of Gypsies period, this group gives authentic presentations of all the favorites with the kind of energy and vibe that will leave you feeling Experienced!!!
Featuring Jeremy Tennant, Seth Roberts, and Michael Robertson of Ft. Smith rock group, Factory.
Listing their influences as “Money, Pussy, and Drugs,” this group from Arkansas has the look of wild all over them in their long beards and smoke and drink while they play attitudes. The music? Well, this is hoe-down music. Not anything as cultured as bluegrass. This is barn dance music about guns, drugs, women and fighting—sometimes all in a single song. It is a potent combination and it works. The group plays wild and loose too, sawing fiddles or trashing banjos. They inject their funny songs about weed-smoking and beer-drinking and fight-causing with fervor and a sense of believability.

THE AQUADUCKS : FUNK-SOUL BAND
The Aquaducks are a high-energy funk and soul band from Nashville, TN with a fresh, yet nostalgic brand of modern funk music. Their live show is a party on the stage and off, from start to finish. While the musical influence of artists such as Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind and Fire, and Lettuce provide enough musical meat to satisfy the appetites of even the most discerning critics, their light-hearted and fun approach to performance ensures that no-one in the audience is left behind.
The Ducks’ performances around the United States have included appearances at Bonnaroo, Rochester International Jazz Festival, FiBArk Festival, and numerous local and regional festivals. They have had the honor of sharing bills with artists such as The Motet, George Porter Jr., Billy Strings, Ghost-Note, Anders Osborne, The California Honey Drops and The Werks. Currently, the band’s tour schedules include stops throughout the Southeast, Colorado, Florida, the Midwest, and Northeast and they show no signs of slowing down as they continue their quest to share the funk with the world.
2019’s “The Deep End” release marked a new chapter in the life of The Aquaducks. The five-song collection explores the deeper side of the band through its use of extended breakdowns and solo sections that impactfully contrast their catchy songwriting. Upon release, the song “Got Me Funked Up” was featured as the second track on Spotify’s All Funked Up playlist, exposing the band’s music to a new wave of fans.
Described by Brooklyn, NY blog Pancakes and Whiskey as “Dripping with enough funk to fill several swimming pools,” The Aquaducks have developed a strong audio-visual experience and established a long-term relationship with fans. Join now, or be late to the party.
WOODY & SUNSHINE
Two-person jam band founded in Arkansas in 2011.
Yes, it’s the Infamous Woody & Sunshine. They’re a pair of pickin’ Arkansan grinners with an insatiable appetite for musical adventure, and a broad palette of tastes and genres. Their sound is Jam-Grass Gypsy-Funk along with incredible Improvisation. It’s Foot-stompin’, Banjo-pickin’, Guitar-shavin’, and World-savin’ music these folks play. An absolute sonic feast for your ear-balls. A winding double-helix of harmonic bliss. A chance to grab the comet by its tail and whip around the universe in a spiral of intangible thought and energy.

Hailing from Ft. Smith, AR and listing their influences for their original music as Pink Floyd, Jimi Hendrix, and Parliament/Funkadelic, Factory is a new musical framework for psychedelic and progressive rock. When they play, their music resonates throughout the cosmos. The music takes form with extensive compositions and can create any atmospheric ambience it pleases. At some points they drift into blues and funk influence which is enticing to hear followed by sweet glazing lyrics. This band enters an unearthly horizon and landscape in rock n roll.
