Formed in 2008, Stone Cold Killer has evolved over the years from a crude punk/metal trio into a well rounded rock 'n' roll assault with a blistering dual guitar attack reminiscent of Thin Lizzy and Guns 'n' Roses. SCK draws on many different influences from many different eras to create their unique rock 'n' roll experience.
Spinning Jenny was formed in 2011 after playing their first gig at a family reunion. Thanks to the kindness of John DiCarlo, frontman of the U.S. Kids, Spinning Jenny was then asked to open for the U.S. Kids at a benefit show held in Steubenville, Ohio. That became not only their first public gig, but the launchpad of nearly three years of playing and making music. Spinning Jenny is proud to say they are a family, with the group consisting of Dr. John Balzano and his three daughters, Julia (18), Talia (15) and Angelina (13). Dr. Balzano passed on his musicianship and love of music, particularly rock-and-roll, to his three daughters from an early age. Before long, the girls learned how to play guitar, drums, bass and keys, and that foundation led them to officially starting Spinning Jenny. During their live shows, audiences can expect to hear a wide variety of music genres — including old-school rock-and-roll, the latest hits on the radio and alternative rock hits — ensuring that there’s something for every age to enjoy. The next step for Spinning Jenny was creating their own music. They were incredibly blessed to meet Lou Contumelio and Dan Bozek of Aardvark Productions, a recording studio in Steubenville. Right away, Spinning Jenny knew they were a perfect match and began working on their debut album, “Outside The Lines,” which mixes rock, alternative rock and pop to create a unique blend of songs for everyone to enjoy. Eight songs later, they finished and released their debut album to the public. In the meantime, Spinning Jenny had filmed their first music video with Shooters Productions of Martins Ferry, Ohio, for their song, “Outside The Lines.” Like the album, the members of Spinning Jenny are very excited about their first music video and are proud to share it. No matter what the future holds for Spinning Jenny, their love of music and love for each other as a family will continue to drive them onward.
Oceans to Ash is an all-original Pittsburgh area metal band formed in December of 2016.

Their unique sound pays homage to their influences while also introducing a new sound to today's music scene.
The multi-faceted musical mastery of Ed Roman sparkles like a prism of possibilities, which play out like a synthesis between a children's book, a musical, an expose and a spirit quest - full of wonder, delight, mystery, provocation and sheer excitement wrapped in layers of funky, soul shaking grooves! The sheer expanse of the musical gamut that Ed draws upon is astonishing and he does so with perspicacity, unbridled passion and cunning virtuosity.
Upon blooming into the music world in the early '80's, Ed tasted from every creative tray before him; from studio musician, live performer and engineer to songwriter and teacher. He has been a part of several bands including Brotherhood, Family Tree, Soup, Big Beat Collective and Special Ed and the Musically Challenged but has always continued to create individually when not collaborating.
Right out of the gate, with his freshman release in 2000, "Special Ed and The Musically Challenged", Ed defined his paradigm with inventive, infectious tunes that shook one's marrow and stirred the spirit! This guy was unique! Three follow-up releases with SEMC continued to mesmerize and astonish us with music that both kissed and prodded, seduced and challenged, hypnotized and enlightened us to ever greater heights.
In May 2011, Ed released his solo venture "Oracles and Ice Cream" and has never looked back. 22 tracks that are an amazing marvel of songwriting wizardry, prodigious performances and contagious energy with the mystery and magic of a lucid, tantalizing dream. The music both traverses and convenes broad music styles into the consummate collective of telluric, penetrating rhythms and canyon wide harmonic explorations, glazed with lyrics that range from penetrating to whimsical and all roads in between.
Now, in 2014, with "Letters from High Latitudes", Ed Roman has done it again, creating an earthy, funky and magical mix of music to seduce our ears! Let us sit back, get mellow and listen to this truly skillful musician weave a tapestry of enchantment from an eclectic fabric of musical styles. We can never get too comfortable however, as Ed will undoubtedly prompt us to examine the world we see and stimulate us to help make it better! Ed asks us to glimpse the world from his vantage point, offering up his vision and sometimes helping to point out the areas that need tidying. Like the janitor of our conscience he'll frequently show us the cobwebs and sweep the dirt from the corners of our perspective. One is left uplifted, invigorated and enriched by dewy new jewels of insight and permeated by a mosaic of mirthful musical mayhem. Funky, ethereal, grungy, luscious, rowdy, serene, provocative, clever, insightful and uniquely exhilarating, Ed Roman's marvelous musings drop dollops of tasteful delight through our ears to our hearts. You can't help but dance. You can't help but smile.
Pleading the Fifth is a band from Moon Township, Pennsylvania that plays what they describe as a blend of classic rock sounds and modern alternative rock.

The band has big plans for the summer of 2018, and is planning to finish their EP and possibly record a full length album of original material and play as many shows in the Pittsburgh/Ohio/West Virginia tri-state area as they can.

About The Redlines: When one looks at all the pieces that shape The Redlines it comes down to one thing: Rock & Roll. Hailing from just north of Pittsburgh, PA, the 4-piece band has taken personal influences and past experience to create a sound they call, American Rock & Roll, a unique blend of twangy roots rock and crunching power-pop. No strangers to the stage or studio, Brian Seese and Jason Lizzi share lead vocal and guitar duties while Tony Vinski (bass) and Mark Ciorra (drums) fill out the rhythm section to create songs with a classic feel but delivered with a fury. Their latest album, the 2016 EP “This Road Can Go On” on Swade Records, features the single “County Road”, heard on Pittsburgh’s WXDX (105.9 The X), Butler’s WLER (97.7), Youngstown, Ohio’s WNCD (93.3 The Wolf), and is in the regular rotation of Tri Lakes Radio out of Colorado Springs, CO.
