Motel Faces
Motel Faces
Beginning in late 2014, frontman, Cody Muldoon, began Motel Faces with just himself and a drummer. By the end of the year, they brought on John Harper to share guitar duties. This original lineup played a handful of show, but by Spring of 2015, Cody and John were left alone. Enter: Matt Coates. In responding to a Craiglist ad for a new drummer, Matt joined Motel Faces and became the missing link. His bombastic, non-apologetic, straight forward Rock n' Roll drum style helped push Motel Faces into a new dimension. Over the following Summer, they remained on a busy schedule. Motel Faces have played some of the biggest stages in the city including Madison Theater and Motr Pub. We are here to form something new. Something original. Something diverse. But above all else, Motel Faces is here to bring attitude back into rock and roll.
Cougar Ace
Cougar Ace
Cougar Ace is a genre melting rock band duo, with influences from country, blues and audio disforestation.

Cougar Ace is guitarist Joel Caithamer and drummer Shawn Fry. They have been winning over fans and lonely drifters found at the finest dive musical establishments throughout the Midwest since 2009.

“More” is the band’s follow up EP to the 2010 release, “Social Outliers.” “More” features the British pop influenced song, “Descent into Hell is Easy”. “All My Fault” a song about the special havoc unleashed when a squirrel catches fire and torches a trailer park. “More” is a passionate four song fling, leaving your ears pleased but ultimately leaving you wanting more.

Front man Joel Caithamer was born in Park Ridge, Illinois. He was brought up in a musical environment in which he dabbled in viola, piano and banjo before picking up the guitar. Influenced by too many musical styles to mention, he keeps LPs of John Lee Hooker, Link Wray, Free, Savoy Brown and AC / DC closest to the turntable. Joel’s sound is an organic overdriven approach reminiscent of the late 60’s / early 70’s. He relies heavily on open major chords, dynamics and a hybrid style of playing rhythm and lead simultaneously to fill in the duo’s sound.

Shawn Fry, the drummer, song-writer and spiritual leader of Cougar Ace grew up in Bay City, Michigan where he was musically influenced by the sounds of Peter Green Fleetwood Mac, Robert Earl Keen, the backing intensity of the Funk Brothers and Bob Seger. He received his first floor tom when he was five years old (no not a set, just one drum).

The band would love to interact with you on Facebook and our music can be found on Reverbnation. (http://www.reverbnation.com/cougarace).
Cougar Ace is a straight-up, in your face, you better be having a good time because we only live once, hell yeah this is why you came out tonight, rock and roll experience.
