The Statistix

The Statistix are a Quad Cities street punk band that is opposed to racism, sexism, homophobia, fascism, capitalism, police brutality, religion, ETC.
The Statistix formed in December of 2011 with Vocalist/Bassist Spencer Statistic and Vocalist/Guitarist Ian Adolescent who quickly picked up drummer Elliot Damaged. After their first show, Elliot quit the band, and the Statistix, with new drummer Jacob Disaffiliate, recorded their first E.P., The American Dream.
A while after the EP was released, Elliot rejoined and switched to lead guitar. The Statistix then performed numerous shows with bands such as Arms Aloft, Comrades Collective, Lipstick Homicide and the Virgin Whores. After a while, Spencer Statistic left the band, Elliot filled in Spencer's vocal spots and Justin Martyr (one of Jacob's co-workers) took over the bass for a while but soon left to go to college. The Statistix just recorded a full length album titled 'The Statistix Can't Exist!' and will be releasing it soon.

The Tripp Brothers

Jimmy & Sean Tripp, are two Midwestern horn players that live the funk. Forging the sounds of saxophone & trombone, fused with heavy bass music, their tones reverberate shockwaves throughout the crowd. Their ability to keep the groove makes dancing inevitable. Illuminating your soul with exploding horn hits, funky solos, and wicked scratching rarely seen in today's live performances, makes these two a must see act!

Glitch Hop with live Saxophone and Trombone!

The Zealots

Biography
"A zealot is someone that feels strongly about a belief... The concept came from the religious zealots of the bible that fought for religious freedom. We apply that same concept to our music. We have one goal. Reach as many people as we can with our message. We are going to tear down the temple that is the music industry and rebuild it."

- Ryan Housenga

Rock anthems and melodic instrumentation define the original sound of The Zealots from Bettendorf, Iowa. The music scene is struggling in Iowa, which is why The Zealots are aiming to be something new and different. After forming in the summer of 2014, they started mixing rock genres into a masterpiece. The Zealots are nothing but original.

In late 2014 The Zealots were the first band from Iowa to collaborate with Joey Sturgis & his team at mixingbros.com. They went on to mix & master the single Chips the Fish. After hearing the final version of the song, The Zealots knew they had struck gold.

In early 2016 the boys were discovered by Will Stevenson at the Artery Foundation. The Zealots signed with the management, making them the first Iowa band on their roster. They went on tour in the summer of 2016 & rocked out 5 different states.

The band is comprised of five members: Micah Martin, Ryan Housenga, Jeff White, Colton Menke, & Adam Housenga.
