This is Bad Dagger.

The world's original innovators of and only true source for pure, high-grade Electrosexymetal.™
Established in earnest: 2012

Disco, Metal, House. The 3 words most commonly used to describe the aggressive and highly-energized audio/visual experience that is Bad Dagger. Since first coming on to the scene as a group in early 2012, these 2 dynamic and talented artists have impressed and entertained audiences with their creative and unique presentation of audio production and musical performance. Bad Dagger has appropriately been called less of a band, and more closely resembling “one instrument that takes multiple people to play.”

Based in Indianapolis, IN, Bad Dagger is currently comprised of 2 members. Cameron Reel provides live audio production (synths, basses, pads, leads via Ableton/ MacBook Pro) as well playing bass guitar. On drum set and sample pad, Eddie Roodvoets provides an intense and nonstop energy to the music. Extremely danceable and cinematic, this act has a tendency to switch gears without warning, making it possible to touch on a wide array of genres in each set. They make use of this versatility with relentless passion and vigor.

​Their blend of musical genres is indeed unique. Nothing sounds like Bad Dagger. Monumental and sublime at times, then hard, dark and anchored at others. A typical Bad Dagger set is certainly wide in scope, touching on elements of Electro, House, Metal, Prog, Funk, Disco, and Big Beat. These elements and more combine in such a way that Bad Dagger leaves each audience member with a sense of having an experience rather than just having seen a concert.

[expand title="Eumatik" tag="h3"]
[hide for="all" exclude="administrator"][/hide][tabby title="Listen"] Eumatik | bandcampEumatik | Eumatik | facebook [tabby title="About"]Eumatik

Eumatik is a living, trance-inducing, funk-blasting, dance mechanism that stimulates the mind by being harmonically innovative and experimental, yet easily accessible in the conventions of modern electronica. What makes their approach to music so interesting is their ability to allure the listener with catchy hooks, slowly lead them outside their accustomed musical boundaries by means of developing harmony, and finally bring them back within a single composition. This is accomplished by fusing a diverse variety of musical techniques that range from jazz theory to 18th century counterpoint. Although their music is thoroughly composed, it contains lengthy sections of improvisation that make every live show unique. Eumatik brings elements of hip hop, funk, trance, jazz, dubstep and disco into ideas that reorder the perception of its own genre-based facade by tastefully covering an incredibly large range of musical concepts. Another important aspect that contributes to their thumb-print sound is their mix of vintage keyboards with ultra-modern sound design and synthesis.

As much of their time off-stage is spent organizing and maintaining a focused outlook on each composition, Eumatik is constantly looking for fresh and innovative ways to use music technology as a tool for improvisation. When they're on-stage, they strive to keep the crowd dancing while making sure everything is melodically and harmonically interesting at the same time. While performing, the overall form and direction is controlled by Josh Lockwood, who utilizes Abelton Live along with an Akai MPK and APC. Jazz pianist, Ashton Kleemann, is constantly playing signature parts on various keyboards along with a MIDI-keyboard that Josh runs Ableton effects through. This MIDI-keyboard directly interacts with what is being played live to create a bizarre and unique atmosphere of band member communication. Mix in the organic sounds of their live drummer, Derek Shelton, and you hear the UFO-summoning, twist-bopping, trance-inducing, disco-fever-catching sounds that are Eumatik.

800 lb. Gorilla is a college rock/jam band based in Bloomington, Indiana. With a rock and roll core, the band pulls together funk and jazz influences to create driving, catchy, danceable grooves. A five-piece band, 800lbG places rock-solid guitar, funky keyboards and sax on top of a drums-and-bass rhythm section. The interplay between musicians takes place on an improvisational plane that harkens Herbie Hancock, The Grateful Dead and Steely Dan.

Originally formed by brothers Mark (guitar) and Daniel (lead vox) Humphrey when they were in middle school, the band has evolved from a hard-rock power trio to a funk and jazz juggernaut. Since that time they have added Kwame Newton (keyboards/alto sax), Brian Carson (drums), and Joe Schweitzer (electric bass). As a group, you would be hard-pressed to find five more competent musicians.

800 lb. Gorilla has enjoyed a warm welcome from music lovers as they have developed their show on stages across Indiana and Ohio. Their fanbase is strongest among their college peers in Bloomington, and the jam band community throughout Central Indiana. They are fortunate to have been invited to play festivals this year including Hyperion, Good People Good Times, JorgStock (Eiteljorg Museum), and Taste of Bloomington.
The band intends to take the musical interplay higher, and continue to reach music lovers far and wide.

CALABASH began as a collaboration between two aspiring singer/songwriters in the heart of America's music city, Nashville, Tennessee. Having formed the group with a shared determination for performing original music, the duo of Paul Wiemeier and Jarod Heim returned back to their home of Evansville, Indiana. As their music grew, so did the lineup. What was once a simple acoustic duo had become an onslaught of rhythm and melody. After years of gigging regionally and building up a fan base, CALABASH has risen to new heights:

Mainstay at The Hideaway in Louisville
Headline The Mousetrap in Indianapolis
Rock the stage at the infamous Preservation Pub in Knoxville
Play Hyperion Festival, with thousands in attendance
Opened for Grammy nominee artist, Afro Man

Trying to throw CALABASH into a distinct genre or classify them is impossible. Their sound encompasses two lead singers, each with commanding vocals, yet, with pronounced differences in style and lyric. The rhythm and bass will keep you entranced, while the lead guitar will leave you begging for more. Their vast assemblage of percussion instruments is unrivaled and seldom seen with other performing acts in the region. All of these devices course together in what can only be personally described by each listener’s experience. With heartfelt lyrics about everyday life and the triumphs and tragedies within, fans are able to draw a connection between their own experiences and the soundtrack of CALABASH. A flowing mix of rock, blues, reggae, and folk is carefully woven into each original composition. Their musical library is fillled with creative, pulse pounding, body moving songs and each set list is tailored to the venue and crowd to which they are performing, so you will never hear the same set list twice.

"Booking music for a living, and as the owner of Lamasco Bar and Grill, I spend hours on a daily basis scouring the regional area for new music. One of my personal favorites doesn't require me to look much further than my own back yard. Calabash is essentially Lamasco's house band, and one of my most dear group of musicians. Their sound blends elements of so many genres, their songwriting is superb, and the sound is pure genius; simply put, they are a personal favorite and a must see for any music lover" - Amy Rivers-Word, owner of Lamasco Bar and Grill

"Many bands haven’t swum far in the rivers, lakes and oceans of Rock the way Calabash has. It makes them sleek and strong with a self-assured intensity that’s one part show band, another part self-examining team of philosophers" - www.songmango.com

"While they don't care to put a label on the band's sound, you can safely call it eclectic, the result of a wide range of musical influences...Simply put, it's a sound that has a little something for everybody" - Thomas Ellis, NEWS4U magazine

"Calabash has become the go-to entertainment in the tri-state. Entertaining the fans and those who are new to the band, Calabash continues to share its determination for great live original music. As a supporter of local music at WUEV 91.5 FM, I believe that Calabash has great things in front of it and will always supply the good times whenever and wherever they perform." - Paul Mattingly, WUEV 91.5 FM (wuev.org)

"Calabash is a mainstay at 'Evening on the River', held each year in June along the Evansville riverfront. The band's distinct flavor of live music is enjoyable to music lovers of all ages, so it is a perfect fit for this unique event. 'Evening on the River' raises funds to support the many parks in Evansville. Without the support of the talented performers in our area, this important event wouldn't be possible. We look forward to many more years of Calabash entertaining the crowds at 'Evening on the River'." - Laurel Meny, Evansville Parks Foundation Board Member

Extremely danceable and cinematic, this act has a tendency to switch gears without warning, making it possible to touch on a wide array of genres in each set. They make use of this versatility with relentless passion and vigor.

​Their blend of musical genres is indeed unique. Nothing sounds like Bad Dagger. Monumental and sublime at times, then hard, dark and anchored at others. A typical Bad Dagger set is certainly wide in scope, touching on elements of Electro, House, Metal, Prog, Funk, Disco, and Big Beat. These elements and more combine in such a way that Bad Dagger leaves each audience member with a sense of having an experience rather than just having seen a concert.

Established in earnest: 2012

Disco, Metal, House. The 3 words most commonly used to describe the aggressive and highly-energized audio/visual experience that is Bad Dagger. Since first coming on to the scene as a group in early 2012, these 2 dynamic and talented artists have impressed and entertained audiences with their creative and unique presentation of audio production and musical performance.

SHY GUY SAYS is an electronic music producer and performer straight from the Mushroom Kingdom, an 8bit villain ready to destroy any party at any time and somehow leave his victims wanting more. His eclectic, yet upbeat and danceable sound can best be described as a mixture of Hip Hop, Glitch Hop, Dubstep, Trap, and Drum N Bass.

It's know for its heavy rhythmic swagger, yet at the same time can be lush and loaded with dirty synth bass sounds, warm ambiance, and 8-bit glitches.
