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
FREAKABOUT is an electrifying four-piece rock band from Lincoln, Nebraska. Rooted in classic Rock’n’Roll, the band has also been identified with a very dynamic, eclectic sound that has allowed them to perform alongside multiple genres of bands such as Dead Sara, Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas, Modest Mouse, G-Eazy, and more.

In support of their debut album “Don’t We All” released in March of 2015, FREAKABOUT began a handful of extensive tours along the east coast, the south and midwest including a spot on the sold out Maha Music Festival.

Full of Aaron Galvan’s heavy blues-rock riffs and Cortney Kirby’s powerful voice, “Don’t We All” embodies a true rock lineup, while adding a unique flavor of pop melodies and honest lyrics.

The band was recently awarded "Best Rock" at the Omaha Entertainment and Arts Awards in January of 2016 and were listed as one of the "Top Bands to Watch for in 2016" by Hear Nebraska.

FREAKABOUT is a true live band. With a heart-pounding groove, paved the way by Ian Francis on drums and Ben Frerichs on bass, the band captivates the audience night in and night out, no matter the setting. They have attracted a wide array of audiences and continue to grow their fanbase, all the while holding true to their own unique interpretation of what rock and roll music is.
