12:30 to 1pMidnight Coast


Midnight Coast is a 4-piece alternative rock band with primary influences from Twenty One Pilots, Ben Folds, and Coldplay.

"Midnight Coast EP" and "Everything in White". Songs are supposed to make you think. 


1:15 to 1:45pRyan Pope Band

       

Straight out of Cleveland, Ryan Pope is an aspiring singer-songwriter who has worked hard to establish himself as an up-and-coming artist. With parts spread deep into pop, hip-hop, soul, and rock 'n roll; Ryan's eclectic background is a springboard for his upbeat, acoustic-driven music. 
Ryan started out at open-mic performances, and in 2010, he moved down to Columbus. With persistence and dedication, he is now expanding his band and his catalog of original songs. He is striving to reach audiences throughout Columbus and the surrounding area, and eventually hopes to embark on a national tour. Catch the Ryan Pope Band as they frequent local bars, restaurants, and music venues.
Ryan has a breakthrough sound that is beginning to touch the masses.
You won't hear original music like this anywhere else! 


2-2:30pKrenelka Trio

     
This acoustic trio plays very cool tunes from the 70s to today - from Steely Dan to KT Tunstall to Ziggy Marley. Todd's unique guitar interpretations and Bec's bluesy soulful voice blend in a way that only many years of playing together produces. Jason's tasty percussion ties it all together to give this trio a very unique sound. 

2:45 to 3:15pOne Eye Theory

  
One Eye Theory is a Columbus-based band of five songwriters who bring their musical influences together to create music based in rock with tastes of alternative, jazz/rock, Americana, and funk.
