The Native Howl
The Native Howl
Lead vocalists and guitarists Alex Holycross and Jake Sawicki had been friends and musicians in the same area for several years before venturing into what would result in the current lineup of The Native Howl. In the fall of 2013, primarily as a duo, they released a 6 song EP, “The Revolution’s Dead.” With the addition of Josh LeMieux on drums, and Mark Chandler on bass, the Howl’s music has evolved into their own unique blend of rock, folk, bluegrass, alternative, and experimental genres. Throw in some keyboards, harmonica, banjo, some djembe, and you get a glimpse of the musical complexity that defines their sound. Their lyrics embody a folk-like storytelling style; the music shines through with a rustic and clean sound.
Ragged Company
As a three piece band with Adam on acoustic guitar, Ben on electric bass and Dave shredding on cello for nearly nine years, Ragged Company has played just about everywhere you can play around the Benson and Downtown areas of Omaha, NE.

In 2015, Ragged found a beautiful spark and rebirth with the addition of some talented musicians joining the band. The addition of George on banjo and dobro, Brandon on mandolin and Ethan on drums along with Kristen's vocal harmonies have transformed their existing songs tremendously.

Ragged Company has just finished recording their second album, the follow-up to 'Time Turns Killer', which is set to be released in May of 2016. The new album, 'Brave Mountain Spirit', is a collection of 11 songs that the band has been fine tuning for the past few years.

Ragged Company is looking forward to getting on the road and sharing their sound with anyone who cares to listen.
Daniel and the Deliverance
Bluegrass is an American art-form that is steeped in tradition. Songs are passed down from generation to generation, to tell great long lost stories with morals reaching to today. Bluegrass pickers spend hours practicing runs and melodies of songs to do them just right.

So anyway ....most of our repertoire ignores all of that, and we play mostly the hits of the 1980's. We call our selves bluegrass-ish and we pay respect the bluegrass legends Bill Monroe and Earl Scruggs, but also the pop ingenuity of: The Cure, Paul Simon, U2, Ahha, and so much more.
