So Mark and Chris came to Mickey and Danny looking to start a new band. August Premier is born. All four of them started writing songs and rehearsing as much as possible. As soon as they had a set of song's they were happy with the started playing shows. Played everywhere they could college parties...battle of the bands..local shows..leading up to opening for bands like Alkaline Trio, ShowOff, Sig Transit Gloria, Allister and Lucky Boy's Confusion. This helped them get a large following in the Chicagoland area. August Premier is comprised of four dedicated musicians. On rhythm guitar and most vocals is Chris Rogner. Danny Halminiak picks up the rest of the vocals, as well as back-ups, and jams out on lead guitar. Mark Halminiak holds the bass guitar while rocking in his own special way. Last ,but not least, Mickey Molinari plays drums with a vengeance, with crazy fills and unbelievable beats. Individually they are four talented musicians. Together, they work to bring thier music to a new level.
The American Autumn, unsurprisingly, is comprised of four twenty-somethings from Chicago, Illinois. Born and bred on pop-punk, they write what comes easy to them: fast, heartfelt songs with handclaps and catchy hooks. Their songs reflect the struggles and settings common to that "just out-of-college" era--a scuzzy bar, a struggling music scene, a superficial friendship, and love (or the lack thereof).
Deadbeat is American lo-fi solo artist Jessica Risker, of the electro-rock outfit Absinthe & The Dirty Floors. Creating self-described “lo-fi folk apatheticisms”, Deadbeat draws influence from the songwriting of Beck, the do-it-alone attitude of Bob Dylan, and the poetic musings of Daniel Johnston.
