CBDB
CBDB
CBDB is a progressive rock/jam band formed in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, whose stock is rising fast. Fresh off the release of their third album, entitled "The FAME EP", they are seeing a pattern of snowballing momentum with large, energetic crowds hungry for their unique brand of progressive jam-rock, dubbed Joyfunk. CBDB blends soulful vocals and virtuosic instrumentation with smart, tasteful songwriting resulting in a sound that can be enjoyed by the casual listener and audiophile alike. On stage, they parade tight, ambitious compositions that seamlessly gives way to loose, adventurous improvisation and have quickly become a must-see act..
Masseuse
Masseuse
Masseuse is a six-piece ensemble that blends eclectic vocal melodies, smooth guitars, and the harmonious sounds of the cello to bring the jam experience. Musically, Masseuse takes audiences on a journey through cultural passages and a world of textures, while other songs drop into the down right stanky funk. With all six together, Masseuse brings the rub-down and grooves to massage your mind.

The group came together after its members discovered a shared passion for progressive jams and improvised music while students at Middle Tennessee State University. There, Masseuse was born. Now based in the middle Tennessee area, its members write and play a set of dynamic yet amusing tunes, with influences ranging from the deep grooves of Steely Dan, to the lyrical quirkiness of Frank Zappa, and the ambient tones of Pink Floyd.

With lush vocal harmonies and memorable licks, each song has a distinct theme that naturally evolves from the members imaginations. The clever and often humorous lyrics sung by guitarist Ross Lenenski are backed by classically trained cello player Ben Van Winkle, adding depth and color. Alex Keiss’ jazz proficiencies range from delicate timbres to high flying guitar solos, while self-taught bassist Kellen Shiles brings the roots of the funk to finally be fashioned by fusion drummer, Kenneth Williams. More recently, Masseuse has added it's sixth member in the rhythmical precision of percussionist Jeff McSpadden to complete the spectacle. Audiences can't help but smile when Masseuse brings the heat, gets goofy, and opens up to the crowd on stage. The energy is sure to have fans dancing on their toes and singing along to the pleasure of Masseuse.
