Swooping down on the earth like a mystical bird of flame, (kāj) provides a rebirth of rock from the ashes of it's predecessors. Driven by a strong vocal presence and melodic guitar riffs and brought together with intense bass undertones and driving rhythmic patterns producing a sound that you aren't likely to forget.
(kāj) was a four member high-energy, modern rock band hailing from the Alle-Kiski Valley of Western Pennsylvania.
Always a band to effortlessly - and sometimes controversially - mash up rock, metal, glam, and punk, Chip DiMonick has been on fire supporting their bombastic fifth album, Uncaged.
Chip DiMonick's music has gotten extensive FM airplay in its home state of Pennsylvania and has been loved and reviewed around the world, including by Europe's Power Play magazine, which called it "cocksure and nasty, but appealing."
Chip DiMonick is a promoter's favorite unsigned act to pair with national acts. The band has opened for a wide variety of both currently hot bands (In This Moment, Texas Hippie Coalition, Huntress, Adelita’s Way, Art of Dying, Wednesday 13) and legendary hard rock forefathers (Quiet Riot, Winger, Lynch Mob, L.A. Guns, Faster Pussycat, Pretty Boy Floyd, Britny Fox, Tom Kiefer of Cinderella, Sebastian Bach of Skid Row).
Paying homage to their musical roots, Homicide Black conjures images of darkness, despair and salvation (not always in that order), telling epic tales with some songs while delivering a straightforward onslaught of crushing metal with others. The music is truly brought to life during the band’s blistering live performances that include tributes to the metal gods designed to engage the audience and introduce metal’s rich history to new fans as well as reacquainting it with those who have waited far too long for their music to return to the epic stature it once had.
Each member is a multi-instrumentalist, allowing for a truly organic writing process which is evident in the material on the band’s self-titled debut. From the dark imagery that sets the stage for “Spirits of the Dead,” “Sinner or Saint” and “Church on the Hill” to the tragedies that unfold in “Well of Souls,” Homicide Black brings to life a new dawn of metal and the drive to bring it to the metal-starved masses.

The Hellfire Club is a guitar driven, in your face Hard Rock/Metal band from Ohio’s own Rubber City of Akron. These mismatched musicians live to entertain crowds. Yet they steadily evolve without compromise and remain true to their supporters. T.H.C . does this by playing a mixture of their own originals as well as hits of today and favorites of the past. Add to that a stage performance that die hard Live Show Fans as well as the aggressive heavy rock World deserves.
The Hellfire Club has played a variety of stages across the Tri-State Music Scene since 2014. In this time they’ve become known for the dual guitar work of Damon Conn and Dave Moore that is brutally crunchy yet dynamically colorful. The machine like precision and charging rhythms of Jeff Graham on bass and Chuck Dobbins on drums. Accompanying them all is John “American Hilljack” Lane’s emotional laced powerful vocals. Together they forge an electrifying experience of Music and Entertainment that’s worth every penny.

Three Vultures is the brain child of Dustin Cutright. For as long as he can remember, he has wanted to be a musician, one that changed the way people felt and listened to music, and one that also opened the minds of his listeners. With a few years and a few bands under his belt, Three Vultures is his most experimental project. With the passion and talent of John Lane on the drums and the groove-filled, dark bass riffs of Auston Dunnington, 3V is an experienced trio of musicians putting hard work, dedication, and love of all genres into their music. Taking influences from grunge, alternative, progressive, psychedelic, and stoner/desert rock for their music and life experiences for their lyrics, Three Vultures is a well rounded rock band.
