The Incantations –
The Kalamazoo-based band, the Incantations, weave a delicate tapestry of dark and light, twisting together the elements of blues, rock, and folk music that define Americana.
The duo of Lisa Mackie and Ryan Gladding conjures up evocative lyrics that etch an indelible mark in your memory and melodies that resonate long after the last note has been played. The music that they summon is a powerful reflection from the roads they have traveled.

The Mainstays –
The Mainstays are a funk & soul band based in Kalamazoo, MI. Featuring Andrew Schrock (singer/songwriter), Terrence Massey (trumpet/vocals), Neal Conway (bass), and Nate Heymoss (guitar) of Michigan’s funk/dance band Funktion, the band draws heavily from the groovy elements that made Funktion a bonafide dance party, while crafting dynamic, insightful, and almost folk-influenced songs. Paul Bauer behind the drum kit and the dirty playing of Tom McRockin Eldred (BMF Band) on keys bring the sound fully together, and provide that elusive answer to your missed connection.
