Crown Point
Crown Point
Crown Point is an alternative pop/rock band from Portland, OR.

Featuring two lead singers, Crown Point's music is noted for its harmonies, meaningful lyrics, and pop sensibility.

Formed in early 2010, the band has played events such as SXSW, Cornerstone, and the Alaska State Fair and toured in 40 states. The band completed a 2-month nationwide tour with Tyrone Wells and Andrew Belle in the fall of 2010 in support of their debut EP, Wolves, which features the single “Back To You”.

Crown Point's band members have played with acts such as Mat Kearney, Puddle Of Mudd, Augustana, Saliva, Russell Crowe, Josh Radin, The Exies, Hurt, Powerman 5000, and many more, and have played sold-out shows at venues such as Doug Fir (Portland), Soiled Dove (Denver), City Winery (New York), Schuba's (Chicago), and Eddie's Attic (Atlanta).

The band is committed to using their music for more than just entertainment. Its members have played benefit shows for organizations such as the American Red Cross, the American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, the March Of Dimes, the Muscular Dystrophy Association, Forward Edge International, and more. In the wake of the 2010 Haiti disaster, the band was involved in benefit events that raised over $25,000 for disaster relief.

The Boise Weekly calls Crown Point's music "sweet alt/rock with a swirl of pop on top". With their debut EP, Wolves, produced by Jeff Johnson (Jet Black Stare, Faber Drive, Adelita's Way) and engineered by Chris Holmes (Korn, The Veer Union, Katy Perry, Simon Collins), the band is ready to allow you to draw your own conclusions.
Hello Monster
Hello Monster
Hello Monster is comprised of four like-minded San Francisco musicians who have come together to crank out melodic pop music with an indie edge. After two years of playing shows all over California, they released their first EP "As For Tonight" a collection of four songs produced by Scott Llamas of PopSmear Records. Combining their varied musical backgrounds, these four journeyman musicians have joined forces to create the band you hear today.

Over the past four years, the band has played all over the San Francisco Bay Area, from small neighborhood bars to larger venues in the city. They have made a name for themselves among promoters and fans alike for their energetic live shows, witty stage banter, and top flight musicianship. Fans have called singer Paul Gimenez "the consummate frontman" thanks to his high energy stage presence and standout vocals, which are always augmented by Bill Bergstrom's boozy grin and rumbling basslines. Sid Slater has become a crowd favorite for his sheer excitement while onstage; he may not say much, but his guitar playing skills always manage to turn heads from musicians and non-musicians alike. AJ Apone is often the most shirtless member of the band, and his rock-solid drumming has helped catapult Hello Monster to newfound success.
The Moonlight Orchestra
The Moonlight Orchestra
The Moonlight Orchestra orbits around a multifaceted array of musical influences that spring from a blues inferno within a psychedelic cascade and on to the chaotic senses of experimentalism and a bit of frenzy. Their music doesn't fit a mold or heed itself to any convention but of their own that reflects a homage to their colorful musical backgrounds.
