Satchel Grande
Satchel Grande
The gentlemen of Satchel have long since established themselves as Omaha's premier good time, funk, and party band. With shades and pimp mustaches, this nine-piece doesn't just take the stage, they own it. Keys, percussion, deep bass, clapping, fiery guitar work and sing-along lyrics make a Satchel show one to remember. The sounds owes a nod to both George Clinton and Steely Dan, yet Satchel manages to not only wear its influences on its sleeve but to also take those influences and turn them into something unique. As far as promoting booty-shaking goes, Satchel is the undisputed local king. — Jesse D. Stanek, The Reader
Icky Blossoms
Icky Blossoms
Icky Blossoms bloomed from the blizzards of 2011 in Omaha ,Ne. Consisting of three multi-dimensional artists, Derek Pressnall, Nik Fackler and Sarah Bohling, Icky Blossoms draw from old friendships, rhythmic experiments and a love for robust melodies to create music stretching from hazy pop to pulsing dance. Music that feels familiar yet so unfamiliar, like the sun heating your face, old haunts, or falling in love.

FREAKABOUT
FREAKABOUT
Lincoln four-piece rock band FREAKABOUT signals at monumental changes with its supercharged sophomore record BABEZOOKA, a brisk 32-minute romp packing a bold lyrical attitude and mind-bending density. Entrancing harmonies, snake-charming leads and pounding rhythms swirl around each other in a kaleidoscopic cloud of smoke. It crushes as hard as Black Sabbath while injecting technical nuance and a healthy amount of blues influence to color each song differently.

FREAKABOUT’s potential as a torrential force owes itself to both its founding pair and its most recent additions. Cortney Kirby and Aaron Galvan make a molten on-stage pair, the former’s show-stopping vocals and the latter’s iron-heavy riffing positively smolder. Bassist Ben Frerichs adds a burst of pulsing energy while drummer Ian Francis is piston-like and precise. In its best moments, the quartet finds a groove and rides it out to often spectacular conclusions.
Mesonjixx
Mesonjixx
Mesonjixx is the nom de plume of songstress Mary Elizabeth Jo Dixon Pelenaise Kapiolani Lawson of Lincoln, Nebraska.

Her music is grounded in the soulful traditions of R&B and jazz, but her style - much like her name, is an exciting fusion of its own. She writes songs to find deeper truths in her own life, and hopes to inspire others to do the same. All the while, faithfully finding love even in moments of struggle and chaos. Her performances are sure to liberate your spine and mind.
