Smoke Healer
Smoke Healer
Smoke Healer was founded in the fall of 2014 by five close friends from the Northern KY/Cincinnati music scene.

From the start, the band wanted to create music that honored the classic heavy music they were influenced by, while maintaining their own unique sonic signature.
Drawing mostly from a deep well of classic rock, hard rock, & heavy metal, Smoke Healer went into overdrive writing their entire full-length record over the course of just ten writing sessions.
The band continued to rehearse and record pre-production demos for the next several months before entering the studio to capture the magic they had created.
With an arsenal of finely crafted songs, Smoke Healer forged through recording, mixing, & mastering at a furious pace in order to keep the newly written material fresh.

During the mixing phase of the recording sessions, the band launched a Kickstarter campaign to help fund the final steps of production, duplication, packaging, & marketing of their record. Though not having any official music yet released to the public, the band still managed to exceed its funding goal within the campaign's short 30 day run.

After securing the funds to complete their record, the group then proceeded to book a CD release show with local music heavies Moonbow, which features David McElfresh (Hank III, Lethal, Killing Rabies) in their ranks. A longtime friend of the band, David also graciously contributed his violin mastery to three of the ten tracks on the record, adding a unique texture to the songs that is rarely seen in modern heavy music releases.

Smoke Healer is ready to share their music with heavy music fans worldwide. The future looks promising and people are about to be healed!

The band’s debut release is currently available for purchase at CDBaby, and will soon be available via iTunes and Amazon.
Blood On The Blade
Blood On The Blade was put together especially for Ironfest. It's comprised of various local musicians from several different bands. We will be playing a set of classic metal covers and drinking massive amounts of alcohol the entire evening. We hail from both sides of the river.
LOVECRUSH 88
LOVECRUSH 88
"Imagine The Cult, Led Zeppelin, and BLONDIE in a knife fight...”

Cincinnati singer Tina Sullivan got together some area musicians to form a one-off band to play a benefit show.

Now, more than two years later, LOVECRUSH 88 is still going and has become a powerful mainstay of the Cincinnati rock circuit!

Tina's soulful cutting singing sets perfect in with the seasoned guitarists Joel Spivey and Mike Reeders Rockin edge and with the experienced Rhythm section of thumping Bassist Vincent Hammerstein and the precision of acclaimed drummer Ryan Moore LOVECRUSH 88 plays a show you don’t want to miss!!
BoozeLords
BoozeLords
BoozeLords an ass kicking rock and roll band from Cincinnati Ohio.

We're like if Ace Frehley, The Damned and The Supersuckers had a bastard love child, and that child was on a lot of cocaine.
Chakras
Chakras
Chakras is a Cincinnati based hard-rock band that incorporates elements of pop, metal, prog and punk to create a memorable, unique sound that remains accessible to the listener. Fueled by lead vocals that range from operatic to sultry, punishingly tight drums and bass, ethereal cello/keys and aggressive guitars, Chakras is a formidable combination of both high-energy and substance.
Dead Man String Band
Dead Man String Band
Strait from 6 feet under comes Dead Man String Band! A one man rock sideshow from Cincinnati, OH. This isn't the one man acts of the past you've seen before, instead it is a full on rock show with an arsenal of amps, drums, and a style that's truly unique to the Dead Man giving it the fan made genre of Appalachian/Delta Punk. Since it's creation Dead Man String Band has been wowing and captivating audiences with not only an amazing sonic display but a visual show made to grab the listeners eyes, as well as their ears. With a stage setup that has been referred to as "Looking at a science experiment" Dead Man String Band has created a sound all his own that will surely grab your attention.

Taking DIY to a whole new level is a phrase commonly used to describe DMSB's sound, presentation, theatrics, and energy. From being brought out on stage in a coffin, to simply slumping towards the stage stiffly, throwing the audience off, until the first notes hit and by that time their stuck to their spot on the floor. Brining crowd members on stage and making them play his drums is just another thing that makes this act unique. Crowd participation isn't just encouraged, it's almost forced to an almost comic like degree. The presentation is another captivating aspect. Dawning a mask fabricated from the same folks that brought you GWAR's props, when he walks on stage you know you're in for a crazy night. Finally the music styling isn't something most are accustomed to seeing. The hands are playing in the stylings of Doc Watson but the amps are in the tone of Slayer and then add the fact that he's playing a drum set at his feet. Don't let the low number of members fool you. This is a band as much as any other.

March 21st, 2015 marked the release of Dead Man's debut album "I" which was widely accepted with much anticipation. And that's where we're finding ourselves today. With a new album out and a promising horizon, the Dead Man String Band plans on becoming a force to be reckoned with!
