Frankie Joe N Kinfolk

Kinfolk is Frankie Joe Willderman (guitar and vocals), Kevin Wulf (six string banjo), and Esme Harferbier (bass and vocals). Kinfolk is a little string band with big roots, honest American roots. Playing mostly originals written by Frankie Joe, Kinfolk is an earthy blend of down-home/Midwest acoustic styles. A sound that comes from before country, rock, and bluegrass had a name. Proud to be Midwest with an Ozark Mountain accent. "We feel a kinship to create this music together and a sense of duty to keep it alive for our clan.”

Have Your CAKE

CAKE Tribute
Long Band Bio:
How many bands begin from conversations between musicians over artists they grew up listening to? In the Fall of 2012, the Quad-Cities band Ragaman were joking about throwing together a cover show for Halloween where they could dress up and play a night as one of their favorite bands. Lots of ideas got tossed around but the room erupted when CAKE was brought up. The show was named the "Have your Cake and Eat it too Party," and the Have Your Cake band was born.

Ragaman covered most of the band with Lars Rehnberg on lead guitar, Leif Rehnberg on drums, Gordon Pickering on the electric bass and Karah Underwood on trumpet (formerly Maylane, I Eat My Friends). For lead vocals they turned to Adam Vilmont, lead singer and guitarist for another Quad Cities original act, Orangadang (who looks and sounds surprisingly like John McCrea from Cake).

Have Your Cake booked two Halloween shows and learned 25 songs in 7 weeks. They expected to only play those two shows, but were immediately flooded with requests from around the Midwest, and are now booked regionally through the end of 2013. Now at every Have Your Cake show, people who have never heard of Cake are falling in love with the music and buying Cake albums. Cake fans are coming out to sing along, and this band is going the distance to make sure everyone can have their Cake and eat it too.

Heavyweight

Genre: Hard-heavy Rock, Metal, Hardcore, Southern Rock

Hailing from the small overlooked town of Muscatine, IA, HeavyWeight started out as just a means for 5 guys to play music while holding down the basic adult juggling act of family and work. From what started out as a simple Facebook post from vocalist Nathan Regennitter looking to play with some local musicians turned into something a bit more after guitarist Jason Wieskamp and drummer Sam Koester were the first to throw their names into the hat. After one practice and call was placed to Matt Parrott with the invitation to take up the position of 2nd guitar player. After a few bass players, Scott Moomey settled in around the spring of 2014 and rounded out the rhythm section nicely.
With musical backgrounds ranging from rock to metal to the fast paced hardcore style to even doom metal, HeavyWeight molds all these sounds into something they feel they can call their own.
