Goose, a band from Fayetteville, AR, has become a Northwest Arkansas sensation playing at local venues such as George’s Majestic Lounge. They serenade visitors to their Facebook page with a piano and stuffed goose at hand. With steady influences such as Jack Johnson, Amos Lee, Dave Matthews and Jason Isbell, Goose has their own Americana-folk-pop vibe. Goose has released two albums, Bad Idea in 2010 and Champagne and Wine in 2012.
Everything authentic. That is the tag line hip hop artist Wave Chappelle chooses to live by. Hailing from Milwaukee, Wave is determined to be a staple in the hip hop world. Having landed in Memphis to attend Lemoyne-Owen College, little did anyone in the world or Mid-South know that Wave was crafting a master plan (and album) entitled It’ll All Make Sense Soon. Teaming up with one of the Hottest DJ’s in the Midsouth DJ Rock Steady, Wave has set the scene on fire.
Spaceface is an original psychedelic rock band from Memphis. Formed in 2012, the band blends unique soundscapes, catchy vocals, raw energy, and a professional light show in order to create a truly memorable experience. Since their formation, they have been involved in two collaborative records assembled by The Flaming Lips to give tribute to King Crimson and The Stone Roses. These records were sold on limited edition colored vinyl and featured artists such as Ke$ha, Policia, Peaking Lights, New Fumes, Stardeath and White Dwarfs, HOTT MT, and Linear Downfall.
Young, loud, and fearless, Fingertrick can rock the roof off with raw talent alone. Combine this wild drive with screaming guitar riffs, bombastic bass lines, and bone-crushing drums—not to mention an absolutely uncompromising lyrical style—and you are left with an unstoppable rock and roll machine.
And everyone at CBU already knows that it isn’t a party until our very own DJ John Dawson says it is.
