UltraFaux, is a Baltimore based acoustic ensemble that draws inspiration for our original music from legendary guitarist Django Reinhardt. The band is an acoustic powerhouse of two guitars and upright bass. Sami Arefin and Michael Joseph Harris trade dazzling leads and harmonize together on rich gypsy-inspired melodies. The dynamic Eddie Hrybyk on upright bass holds down the steady swinging pulse and brings his passion for improvisation to the group.

Since its creation in 1990, the Baltimore-based Unity Reggae Band has been pleasing listeners with its unique, roots-based reggae music. From the very beginning, the band has been a melting pot of various musical influences. Each member brings their own unique musical perspective which, when brought together under the umbrella of Reggae, creates a musical style that is unique but true to the roots-reggae style of music.

The Bumper Jacksons are a big, fat party. Recognized as the region's "Best Traditional Folk Band" at the 2013 Washington Area Music Awards, the Bumper Jacksons are playfully creative with their originals and re-imagining American roots music with both power and tenderness.  Bursting at the seams with some of the richest threads of old America, Bumper Jacksons bring you into the center of a party where everyone's invited and the dance floor never sleeps.

The Manly Deeds plays a style of old-timey American roots music shaped as much by the landscapes of their Baltimore, Maryland, home as by the musical traditions they aspire to. Their songs reflect lives lived in the shadow of the Appalachian Mountains and pulled by Chesapeake Bay tides; nestled at the top of the south and the bottom of the north.
