For Willie Waldman every gig is like a band debut. With one important exception: Every member is not only talented but vastly experienced. That is the intrigue of the Willie Waldman Project. The band is ever-changing as Waldman pulls noted musicians from all styles and geographical locations to play free form music created on the spot. This represents the true history of Jazz!

"The artists have so much freedom, It's a cool vibe" Terry Saffold said "Waldman is a genius at bringing diverse players together". It is always fresh and exciting, no one in the industry is doing what Waldman has accomplished" and the fans dig it.

Although Waldmans musical career began with the Chesterton High School Marching band in Chesterton, In. Waldman believes his real training began in Memphis TN. While attending Memphis State on a music scholarship, it was on Beale Street that Waldman met several musical legends that he feels groomed him for what the Willie Waldman Project is known for today.

The Willie Waldman Project is celebrating the 25th year of FreeWorld the band he co-founded in college. They received a brass note on Beale Street October 6th 2012.

Christian cut his teeth on the dance floors of the midwest rave scene of the late 90's.
With his diverse music palate, he's had the opportunity to open for Frankie Bones, Mark Farina, GRiZ, G Jones, Manic Focus, and the Floozies.

You don't merely witness Christian -- you experience him. Watching Christian perform is a lesson in technical DJ proficiency, a proficiency that has grabbed the attention and respect of the local Indianapolis Bass scene.

To him, tracks aren't just songs. They are scenes to a film, chapters to a novel. And it's the narrative approach to his dancefloor assault that reveals his true level of expertise.

All captured forever in Hi-Fi.

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.
