Johnny Conqueroo
Johnny Conqueroo
Johnny Conqueroo is a highly kinetic blues-rock trio from Lexington, KY. After releasing their first EP in 2015, the band drew the attention not only of local and regional audiences (selling out venue after venue), but also industry professionals. Currently partnering up with veteran producer Tom Zutaut (Guns N Roses, Motley Crue, Tesla, etc) and engineer David Barrick (Kentucky Headhunters, Black Stone Cherry, Vince Gill), a new record is in the works. Momentum has only continued to soar with their fanbase outgrowing venues and the reach of social media inspriring booking requests in new markets.

While 2016 is looking to be a watershed year for these dudes, it is important to look at the grassroots support and organic exposure from 2015, which pushed their EP towards the top of the regional charts in both air-play (WRFL College Radio) and record sales (Independently owned "CD-Central"), leading to a popular "WRFL-Live" performance on Thanksgiving eve. As word spread, and EPs changed hands, eventually even R & R Hall of Famer Billy Gibbon's took notice

Kalamazoo's favorite suns. High energy twang-rock and jelly roll.
Coleslaw
Coleslaw is a 5-piece instrumental band that came together through a mutual love of jazz, funk, and soul, as well as many other influences. The band centers around two unique and powerful voices (Jacob O'Donnell, Kirby Davis - Saxophones) stating strong melodies and exploring a vast harmonic realm overtop hard grooves laid down by a powerhouse rhythm section (Nolan Brelsford - Guitar, Simon Long - Bass, James Gooding - Drums). As one of only a handful of funk acts based in Lexington, and perhaps the youngest of that demographic, Coleslaw and its ambitious musical exploration are bringing something original and exciting to the Lexington music scene.
