Donna Hopkins Band:
Donna Hopkins is the real deal. Born and raised on an Alabama farm, Donna witnessed hardship first hand, channeling it into the soulful music that she creates and performs. Music runs in her family; her mother performed rock and roll in go-go boots and miniskirts and her grandfather was a fine musician in his own right. Following in their footsteps, Donna is a consummate seasoned performer with many songs and performances under her belt, and has opened for or shared the stage with such luminaries as Col. Bruce Hampton, Derek Trucks, Francine Reed, Joe Bonamassa, Emily Saliers (The Indigo Girls), Stevie Wonder, and Robert Cray (to name just a few).
As much at home in an intimate listening venue as she is on a giant festival stage, Donna Hopkins performs both solo and accompanied by the perfectly seasoned group of musicians who make up the Donna Hopkins Band, and is always a crowd pleaser.
Antelope: A Tribute To The Band Phish, has quickly become one of the top acts to see in lower Southeast region of the United States. Featuring members from Florida's heavy hitters, Cope, Juanjamon Band, Boxcar Hollow, and The Funky Seeds; this collaboration is one that puts an emphasis on improvisational concepts, and the complex musicality of the band Phish. Show after show, Antelope gives the audiences what they seek that even the most critical Phish fan will walk away in wonder. "We're very proud of what we've created here, and we just want to do justice to one of the best bands on the planet," says Matt Weis guitarist of Antelope. Check out Antelope in a town near you, and share in the groove!
F.U.X, but you can call us FUX, was started by Mark Sultan after years of freelance playing around the east coast. Blending their love for Phish, Umphrey’s McGee, TAUK, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and many classic rock bands, Sultan set out to find his brothers (Reade Alexander, Zach Sloan, and Luke Klaer) and thus in an erotic crossfire hurricane FUX was born. FUX decided it was time to take their knowledge and mend it with their soul to work towards getting the masses dancing, laid, and spreading love. After receiving knowledge from idols Jacob Alan Cinninger, Brendan Bayliss (Umphrey’s McGee) and Gabriel Marin (Consider the Source) they were ready to finally show the world what was brewing in their mind and make music that makes sense. FUX combines their goofy and laid back personalities on and off stage to help spread cheerfulness and positivity to the world. Don't let their silly attitudes fool you, these boys show up to play. With the deep transcendental rhythmic varieties from Luke, the bass love bombs from Zach, smooth melodic phrases from Reade, and sporadic ignition from Sultan, FUX will keep you dancing all night long.
