New Urban Frontier
New Urban Frontier are Edinburgh's fast-flowing muzikal mash-mash. A politicised punk-inspired dub-loving, soul-singing, ska-swinging seven-piece live band with a rapper. They came together with a passion to create a new sound. Inspired by the punk ethos of old and the challenging voices of the few modern bands who seek to motivate, their aim is to blow apart the idea of being a 'genre' and make a sound that will wake you up. Having played gigs across Scotland and England as well as a number of festivals including Kelburn Garden Party, Eden Festival, Audio Soup and the main stage at Doune the Rabbit Hole, They've garnered quite a reputation for their passionate live performances.

Tommy Bentz Band
The Tommy Bentz Band is based in Western Wisconsin, and extensively tours regionally in the US and bi-annually to the UK. The Tommy Bentz is a fantastic power trio that has been in existence for over 15 years, jamming in the style of "the Allman Brothers meets Van Morrison". Tommy leads the band as the singer/songwriter/guitarist whose professional soloing chops radiate throughout the band's performance. A standout slide player, Tommy has often been touted as one of the best in the Midwest. Jason McLean's melodic and groovy bass lines and harmony vocals combine perfectly with Alex Burgess's rock-solid, musical percussion talents and spot-on background vocals. The band combines all of their years of musical performance into a tight, energized, soulful, live musical package like none other you've heard before. The shows include songs Bentz has written and recorded, mainly bluesy rock that spotlights his impeccable work on guitar, an instrument he didn’t take up until his mid-teens. While reading Bentz's lyrics, one gets a snapshot of his ideals - from the strength he derives from family ties to the always present issue of respect in this ever changing world. The audience are then left with the impression of a man who has learned much from where he's been, has processed that knowledge and now presses forward into the unknown with great purpose. If lyrics alone drove Bentz's work, the product would be wonderful, but combined with their technical musical prowess, warm and soulful vocals, southern jam style blues-rock combined with acoustic singer/songwriter flair...the audience is given a magically wide-ranged musical evening that truly is the Tommy Bentz Band experience.
