THE DIRTY GRASS PLAYERS

Hailing from Baltimore, Md The Dirty Grass Players have established themselves with one toe-tappin’ foot in traditional bluegrass and blazing musicianship that pushes boundaries. Comprised of Mikey Sallemi on Bass, Alex Berman on Banjo, Ben Kolakowski with the guitar, and Ryan Rogers on mandolin, this four piece is successfully bringing their growing fan base a down, dirty and heated performance. Their ability to seamlessly transition from downhome bluegrass to spirited improvisation makes each performance unique. Throw in some Allman Brothers, Pink Floyd or a dash of southern rock and you’ll quickly understand what they mean by Dirty Grass. Their self-titled debut CD The Dirty Grass Players captures this energy and as 2017 winner of Charm City Bluegrass & Folk Festival Band Competition clearly indicates, this is just the beginning. Successfully touring the Mid-Atlantic and festival appearances, this year finds the group expanding along the East Coast and building on this momentum. For anyone that enjoys a musical throwdown by skilled musicians its time to get your grass dirty.

SQUARING THE CIRCLE

Squaring The Circle, hailing from Baltimore, MD, is an original rock/fusion quartet with a strong taste for the experimental jam. Featuring some of Baltimore’s finest musicians, Squaring The Circle has taken lessons learned from countless miles on the road to form a formidable musical amalgamation of all former musical projects and influences, along with the masters of jazz, funk, and blues. Their live performances are high energy parties blended with technically proficient and purpose-laden musical statements, and their sound is a perfect combination of “heavy guitar, syncopated melodies, soaring organ, and grooves” (The Jamwich, 2018). Fresh off the release of their debut full-length album entitled "Gyonk," Squaring The Circle is prepared to bring their sound to new cities and audiences up and down the east coast and beyond.
