Fielder is a five piece band out of a little old town up on a bluff just east of the Mississippi River called Quincy, Illinois. Fielder combines aspects of its acoustic roots to its current rock and roll demeanor. The band was formed in late 2003 as a 3 piece, but their current 5 piece structure was not fully established until late 2006. In the relatively short amount of time that the five members were playing together they put together an amazingly tight eclectic musical connection that couldn't be kept underground. A buzz surrounded their hometown of Quincy, Illinois and off they went playing shows for Colleges/Bars/Friends.

Blake Gradner & The Farmers break free from being able to be defined by a single genre through mixing together elements of blues, reggae, hip-hop, funk, and nearly everything else under the sun. Known for their improvisation and collaboration with other artists, Blake Gardner & The Farmers are sure to make each performance as unique and memorable as the last. After getting their first taste of the festival stage at Wakarusa and Summer Camp, BGatF has been since playing consistently around their homebase of Columbia, MO to promote their freshman release Cricked Roots (2014).  Alongside their regional touring and yearly #Livemix releases, BGatF is finishing writing a new album as a follow up to Cricked Roots.

Zeke started climbing the mountain as a singer/songwriter from the midwest and continues to hike in whatever direction the wind blows. In 2013 he formed the band Zeke Cernea and the UnXpected and put out a self titled release. That release led to an opening spot for Tracy Lawrence during his 2013 summer tour. Zeke's single See Ya Later went on to make the Radio Airplay top ten songs list for week four of 2015. In 2016 Zeke formed the group Zeke Cernea with Paul Wood and has ventured back to his acoustic roots. With his custom Martin 000-18 and a case full of harmonicas he provides a throwback to acoustic artistry that will send you on an emotional adventure to a different place and time. As a self taught percussionist, Paul has been able to mold his craft  in a unique fashion that knows no boundaries, limitations, or rules. His percussive skill and feel leaves listeners with the same fulfillment one might experience peering toward the horizon during a haunting sunset. His first documented work can be heard on a holiday record he played on with the Settlers. From there Paul found himself in the midst of a new adventure called Seven Days Fuller, a thriving project that fueled his love for collaboration and led to many years accompanying singer/songwriters. In 2016 he joined Zeke Cernea and found a sound, feel, and comfort they both new they could call home. Paul also has a couple side projects in Fielder and The Slopes.
