Artist Bios:

Baltimore, MD

After a very successful year in 2015, SOOHAN is ready to take his music to the next level in 2016. The widespread popularity of both albums earned him his first national tour and sets at 11 different music festivals in 2015, including sets at Camp Bisco, Infrasound Equinox, Great North and a main stage set at Emissions West Coast Bass Festival.

SOOHAN has returned with his third full length album “SOOHAN- Global Gate 808.” His first two albums became an immediate internet sensation, garnering over 550K this year alone. The widespread popularity of both albums earned SOOHAN his first national tour and sets at 11 different music festivals in 2015, including sets at Camp Bisco, Infrasound Equinox, Great North a main stage set at Camp Question Mark’s Emissions West Coast Bass Festival. For 2016, he has already been confirmed for Sonic Bloom and Lucidity Festival.

SOOHAN’s remixes pay homage to the mighty 808 kick and utilize a unique and extensive sample selection that make his work truly memorable. He takes us on a multi-faceted journey across the globe, pulling from the traditional music of various cultures and from the depths of our nostalgia. His unique sound sets him apart from many popular bass music acts, and has earned him a cult following across the U.S. Where else are you going to find trapped out Turkish folk music? Do yourself a favor and press play.



St. Louis, MO

Coming from an ancient, faraway dimension known to humans
as St. Louis, MO, “Lusid” has arrived on our planet to bring a
head-bobbing musical project that is simply out of this world.
The groovy psychedelia of Dean McDonnell’s auditory
brainchild is overflowing with diverse instrumentation; this
includes the interesting adoption of live guitar, funky bass,
tribal didgeridoo, atmospheric theremin, and vinyl record
scratching. Tangled with the handwoven threads of crowd-
moving electronica, Lusid focuses on funky fresh vibes and
floor-stomping appeal against an absolutely titillating
wardrobe choice. It’s gooey, and his impressive musical worlds
offer a dreamy, sensational rhythm to the dance floor, his latest
release being “Visions from the Cryo Chamber” from 2016.
Since 2009, his innovative soundscapes have been enjoyed all
across the United States, a series of performances witnessed at
Backwoods, Suwannee Hulaween, Zen Awakening, and many
more. Better grab a helmet, for the mind-tingling adventure of
Lusid will put you into a state of psychedelic bliss.

The Woodsmiths
Columbia, MO

Corey-Gypsy Drum Kit/Hand Percussion
Jordan-Washtub/Acoustic Bass
Jeannine Elizabeth-Fiddle

Born and raised on the streets of downtown Columbia MO. A gritty street band that rolls as steady as the River on the edge of their hometown and the liquor that flows through the music.

“This one’s about whiskey,” says the singer of The Woodsmiths, the first band to perform. The folk band featured a guitar, the drums, a violin and an upright bass fashioned out of a string and a tin bucket. As the singer belted out the one-word chorus, festgoers slammed a few shots of whiskey to transition from appreciating movies to appreciating alcohol.

The quartet glided through a set filled with similarly-themed songs. A few brave souls took to the otherwise empty dance floor to bust some moves that in another setting would be socially condemning but felt acceptable in Eastside.

After The Woodsmiths gave its parting words by kindly asking the audience to “tip them in drugs,” BY JACK FLEMMING

“this summer was the 10 year anniversary of the release of “The New Sound” and in my opinion,it still holds up rather well for what it was. a garage rock/pop album,by a garage band,recorded in a garage studio. At the time of it’s release,the band was unhappy with the finished product and when they played their last show 3 years later, they had dropped all but one song from the setlist. But 10 years is a long time. Listening to OPdub’s “New Sound” now, in spite of the production or the overall quality of the performance itself, I can’t deny the appeal of the songs. “Champagne Headache” is still the greatest hit single that never was and sticky wads of stoner bubblegum like “Morning Cigarette” & “Master Plan” were always crowd pleasers during OPW’s live shows. The mammoth 11 minute “Freudian Slip/Partly Cloudy” seems less like filler material and more like an epic album closer and erratic numbers like “Sloppy” have aged gracefully,probably because of their wackiness. There’s always a looming threat that the band could reunite and release a 2nd studio effort, and some new Orange Punch Warfare might be interesting, but this debut release is still exactly what the title implies.” “The New Sound of Orange Punch Warfare” is available @ Amazon.com CDBaby itunes,napster,and other on-line music outlets.

Jimmy Herring & the Invisible Whip - 09.03.17http://2720cherokee.com/event/jimmy-herring-the-invisible-whip/http://2720cherokee.com/?post_type=events&p=4005

Jimmy Herring & the Invisible Whip

Sunday, September 3 @ 7:00:pm


JIMMY HERRING, one of the most sought-after contemporary American guitarists, will be embarking on the next chapter of his career as he announces tours with his new band, The Invisible Whip. As the founding member of The Aquarium Rescue Unit, Project Z and Jazz is Dead, in addition to playing with everyone from The Allman Brothers Band to The Dead to Phil Lesh and Friends, HERRING has made his indelible impact on the music world. He currently serves as the lead guitarist for the very popular American band Widespread Panic.



Although Jimmy has been touring consistently with Widespread Panic over the past 10 years, along with short tours with Aquarium Rescue Unit, Phil Lesh, and The Ringers, it has been almost five years since he last toured with his own band. The 2017 tour will feature new music that he has been working on, along with material from his last two records, Lifeboat (2008) and Subject to Change Without Notice (2012).



The Invisible Whip, which stands for the invisible force of music that drives the band, is a nod to Col. Bruce Hampton, who’s made a lifelong impact on the members of the band. All graduates of the “University of Bruce Hampton”, The Invisible Whip are longtime friends. Previous members Jeff Sipe (aka Apt Q258) on drums, and Matt Slocum on B3 Organ and Clavinet, will be joined by bassist Kevin Scott, and multi-instrumentalist Jason Crosby, who will primarily be featured on Fender Rhodes and piano.
