    Oak Hill Drifters

    Jump Blues

    The love of early 20th century American roots music is very apparent with Oak Hill Drifters, who are based out of Orlando, Florida.  Their music and performance echos the 1940's - 1960's paying homage to some of the great music writers and innovators of rockabilly, western swing, jump blues, country and the foundation of R&B.

    ​The band's current iteration was formed in 2014 where its founder, Tommy Cooper recruited an all-star cast of performers including Rachel Decker, Craig Roy, George Dimitrov and Tom Pearce whose collective resumes include work with The HoneyBees out of Chicago, as well as Central Florida icons Hindu Cowboys and Rocket-88.  Tommy and Rachel's impeccable vocal harmonies capture the essence of great duos of the past, reminiscent to the likes of the Everly Brothers and Louvin Brothers.

    ​​

    ​​In mid 2016, the band released its debut 11 song compilation, "Fly Off The Panhandle."   A 7-song EP is slated to be released in April 2018.

    Good Morning Bedlam

    Folk

    Good Morning Bedlam is often mistaken as siblings, owing partly to their members’ similar looks: two curly, red-haired girls and two guys with Minnesota tattoos and piercings. But their cohesion goes beyond appearances. Their show is an explosion of energy with soaring harmonies, a banjo player that scissor-kicks in the air, a string bass that will shake your chest, and a beat that will have your foot stomping through the floor. One fan describes their music as “furious folk!” Every song is a unique twist on what is generally dubbed as folk music.”We want to surprise our audience from song to song. Rather than creating our music to fit a genre, we allow it to be an outpouring of our own stories and unique sound,” says Isaak, frontman of GMB. One moment they are blasting through a jubilant bluegrass tune, headbanging and careening around the stage, and in the next, Sophia, their fiddler is dancing the Charleston during what can only be described as a modern folk swing dance song. Just when you think you have Good Morning Bedlam pegged, they take you in another direction. You will be treated to a haunting waltz, whistling, jazz scatting, banjo licks, a bass spin, and the euphoria of the violin melodies. When it comes to their lyrical storytelling, Isaak says, “We’re desperate to connect to people through the common human experiences that we write about and the exuberance of our live show. People have a lot of choices of how they’ll kick-back, so we intend to deliver a show where they can be free--to share in whatever they need to--joy, grief, anger, gratefulness, or bedlam!”

     

    Early 2016, Good Morning Bedlam signed with Minneapolis record label Last Triumph and released their first full-length album, Prodigal, and continued to tour the Midwest through the winter. Since playing six shows at SXSW 2017 in Austin, Texas as part of the Last Triumph showcase, Good Morning Bedlam is becoming an innovative force in the Midwest folk scene. 2018 holds big plans for Good Morning Bedlam as they gear up to release their second Full-length album.
