oe2kb (17K)

OE-2-KB began as a band of brothers — Stephen & Rusty. They got kicked out of karaoke and had to grow up into their own group … and learn to play nice with others, embracing the talents of Eddie Angell, Dave Hankla, Colette Oldham, and Theodora. OE-2-KB grew quickly from being part of the party to being THE PARTY!

fatcatcus (39K) Fat Cactus was formed by two former members of Out of Hand. Jeremy King is the soulful front man with a raspy edge that sets him apart from other singers and saxophonists. Jeremy fronted & booked the bar band powerhouse Out of Hand for almost 10 years, playing roughly 300 shows per year. Jeremy has played in various blues/rock bands since he was a teenager. While Jeremy was with OOH, he asked guitarist & vocalist Bert Mingea to join, which was proven to be a drastic improvement in comparison to the original lineup.

Jeremy & Bert were already the total package to front just about any band they wanted to. Bert is a very accomplished guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter. He has a very refined, smooth voice and a face melting guitar style that screams blues & rock with some jazz influence. Bert has played with bands such as Out of Hand, The Druids, Co-alition, Bay Street, Jim Essery Band, and many more.

Billy Buchanan
&
his Rock 'n Soul Revue

“The Music Man”, Billy Buchanan, is bringing his Rock ‘n Soul Revue. His nonstop, no holds barred show is an authentic, jawdropping homage to The Pioneers. He channels soul greats like Chuck Berry, Ray Charles, James Brown, Little Richard, Jackie Wilson, Sam Cooke, Stax icons, Motown superstars, and many more with ease. Born and raised in Cleveland, OH, the city where DJ Alan Freed first coined the phrase "Rock and Roll", Billy Buchanan has a deep musical heritage. Digging into his father's LPs at a very young age, he became a disciple of all the groundbreaking soul, blues, and rock legends. Not only does this gritty song and dance man belt out the classics like nobody’s business, he is an exceptional, award winning songwriter. In his original music, you can hear the backbeat rhythms and musical influences of all the artists he admires. His forthcoming album, “ShagShuffleShimmyShakeSwing”, will be released in the summer of 2017. He also performs popular artists such as Prince, Bruno Mars, Michael Jackson, and Pharrell Williams in his own unique, soul stirring style. Drawing people of all ages, races, and backgrounds straight to the middle of dance floor, his fans twist, lindy hop, stroll, mash potato, and watusi all night long. When rock and roll was still in its infancy, it was electrifying, unrestrained, and unapologetic. Billy Buchanan’s Rock ‘n Soul Revue exemplifies all of those characteristics and is a true celebration of the music.
