Veronica Grim
Combining the fables of a gypsy rogue with the galloping melodies of a gang of outlaw punks creates quite the musical combination. The influence of Outlaw Country and good old Rock and Roll can be heard throughout Veronica Grim's catalog of musical samplings. Formerly known as the lead singer of Switchblade Syndicate, Grim has broken away from the standard pyschobilly and cowpunk formula and created a whole new sound that crosses over the borders of several genres. For Grim and her exceptional bandmates, the truth and heart in a song plays louder than an amp, and the hell raised in live performance comes from a true love of being in front of those who can appreciate the power of real, pure music that doesn't require an auto tune.

In addition to headlining local shows in the Cincinnati area with Switchblade Syndicate and Veronica Grim and the Blue Ribbon Boys, Grim has had the pleasure of sharing the stage with such national acts as Nekromantix, The Koffin Kats, The Arkhams, Whiskey Daredevils, Lydia Loveless and many more.

The band originated in Northern Kentucky and has moved to Long Beach, California for new adventures. Ready, willing and able to travel for gigs given enough notice. You can't put a price on fun...

Rucca
Rucca, the singing and songwriting acoustic duo, is led by two females Lauren Letsinger and Ashley Thomas. With fans of all ages, they have fun with their crowd and make memorable performances through their vocal harmonies, original and cover songs.

Originally, they played as Strike Me Pink when they first formed in 2002. In 2005 they gained recognition and a larger following by playing local venues in the Cincinnati/Tri-state area. Their first recording experience was with Random Precision Studios followed by Candyland Studios with their second project, Hearts for Heroes. Although they enjoyed their full band experience with Hearts for Heroes, their fans seemed to want more of their original, acoustic style.

Over the past few years, Rucca has been able to add some great experiences to their list such as an interview with Kiss 107 and Fox 19 from Cincinnati, OH. They've also been chosen to be the first artists ever to kick off the Summer Concert Series on Fountain Square in downtown Cincinnati. This opened the doors for a variety of local venues such as The Southgate House, Madison Theater, The Mad Hatter Club, Radio Down and Mainstay.

​Additionally, they have been asked to perform at the Time Warner Stage at Riverbend Music Center where they became an opening act for artists such as Death Cab for Cutie, Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, The American Idol Live Tour, Heart, Stevie Nicks, The Jonas Brothers, and many more.

Currently, Rucca is unsigned but has high hopes to be acknowledged in the music industry for their originality, heartfelt lyrics, and ability to appeal to a widespread audience.
