Fifth & Aurora is an American indie/alternative band from Youngstown, OH. The band consists of Lou Rivera, Daniel Anderson, Dan (Dahnji) Hobel, James Greenawalt and Ben Greenawalt. F&A was formed by lead vocalist/pianist Lou Rivera in the winter of 2016 and through multiple member changes, began performing in the summer of 2017. The band is currently in the process of releasing their first album some time in the year of 2019. It is being recorded and produced by producer Josh Walls at JAW Studios in Niles, OH.
PONCÉ is a dynamic rock duo based in Nashville, TN consisting of twin brothers Carson and Michael Poncé. The twins efficiently cross genres; from classic, harmony-driven melodies reminiscent of Tom Petty And The Heartbreakers, to modern, synth-led pop productions with melodic guitar leads evocative of The Killers and HAIM.
“PONCÉ has zeroed in on what makes a good marriage of earnest pop and glossy rock, and they’ve channeled it into a batch of eight danceable, hook-laden songs.” – NASHVILLE SCENE
Their debut EP ‘Afterglow’ was released in April 2017 and has enjoyed spins on over 50 college radio stations throughout the country and has generated licensing deals with MTV, Netflix, NASCAR and E! among others. The twins toured most of 2018, playing nearly 70 dates but got back into the studio to start work on their untitled, sophomore release slated for Spring 2019. PONCÉ has opened for acts such as BOMBA ESTEREO, Andy Frasco, Matthew Thiessen and The Earthquakes, CBDB and The Ataris.
Vertical 48 was formed in 2010 and have been playing music together ever since. The trio, consisting of Mario, Vinny, and Chris, have been playing music together at performances all over the Pittsburgh area and beyond.
