Sponge
Sponge
Sponge has proven to be one of the Motor City's heaviest hitters after gaining international notoriety with their debut album "Rotting Piñata” (Sony). Emerging from Detroit with hits like "Plowed" and "Molly (16 Candles)" Sponge received massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV. Both “Plowed” and “Molly” hit #5 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Charts, catapulting “Rotting Piñata” to Gold, and ultimately Platinum status.

Sponge's follow up CD, the critically lauded “Wax Ecstatic” (Columbia) scored additional top ten Billboard hits including "Wax Ecstatic" and "Have You Seen Mary?" The band’s music was also featured in popular movies “The Craft,” “Chasing Amy,” “Mall Rats” and “Empire Records.” Sponge’s star continued to rise with network appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and the “Conan O’Brien Show.”

Sponge’s subsequent releases “New Pop Sunday” (Beyond), “For All The Drugs in The World” (Idol), “The Man” (Idol), And “Galore Galore,” showcased the band’s swirling sonic attack, rooted in 70's glam and of course, the Motor City influences of The Stooges, The MC5 and Motown-but still sounding uniquely like no one else.

Sponge is now touring in support of their latest release – the 5 song EP “Destroy the Boy” which features rousing rock anthems “Before the End,” “Star,” and “Come in From the Rain,” in addition to the title track - a galvanizing anti-child abuse manifesto.

Having shared stages the world over with Nickelback, Iggy Pop, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Kiss, to name just a few, Sponge continues to be one of rock’s most sought after live acts. Front man Vinnie Dombroski captivates audiences with his powerful voice, heart-on-his-sleeve lyrics and full throttle stage presence.

With “Plowed” now featured on Guitar Hero’s Warriors of Rock “90’s Rock Track Pack,” and on the Paper Jamz Guitar Series 2 (now available at Walmart), Sponge is poised to bring its potent brand of Detroit rock to the masses, once again proving that rock never stops.

Jounce
Jounce
Jounce is an East to West Coast band centered in Brooklyn, NY. An ever evolving post punk and 90′s rock hybrid. A product of a well defined generation only re-imagined. Nearly impossible to describe but easily digested.

Consisting of Dan Tamberelli on bass/vocals (who some of you may know from one of your favorite childhood shows), Matt DeSteno on guitar and Tim Kuhl on drums, the band is a mainstay at bars, clubs, music halls, colleges and festivals, consistently building buzz and refining their presence in both the live and studio settings.

We like to think Pete Wrigley would dig the Jounce.
