The Aquaducks: From their inception, the group has been recognized as an award-winning band. “Our first show was a battle of the bands at Belmont University, that we won.” reflects guitarist Zach Sheffler, “the recognition was flattering, to say the least.” While these awards are creating a nice resume for the group, it is the trail of fans across the southeast that is the main priority. “We want to create an experience that the fans will appreciate and share amongst other funk/soul fans. I want little aqua-ducklings everywhere.” Says lead vocalist Cavanaugh Mims concerning the future for The Aquaducks. Marquee Mayfield: Pop and R&B artist Marquee Mayfield is a songwriter, vocalist, and performer bringing a new form of funk to the stage. Richly versed in the old skool of soul, he's a modern mind smitten by disco's dance floor, with a flair of fetish for the EDM scene. Huckleberry Funk: Huckleberry Funk is a high-powered Funk, R&B and Soul band based in Bloomington, Indiana. Their live shows have earned them a reputation as one of the most exciting and entertaining live performances in the Midwest. Hailing from Long Island, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis and Bloomington, the members of Huckleberry Funk were brought together by their shared love for gritty, groove-centric music. After endless nights of self-reflection and some words of wisdom from a good friend, it became clear that "Funk" is much more than a genre - it's an attitude. The diverse upbringings and musical styles of each band-member allow Huckleberry Funk to establish meaningful and memorable relationships with every audience they play for.
