Justin Kalk Orchestra
The core group of the Justin Kalk Orchestra is comprised of guitar/composer and vocalist Justin Kalk, bassist Steo Britton and drummer/percussionist Jeremy Williams. When the group storms on stage with a sizzling version of “Stole My VCR”, one of the band’s signature tunes. Jaws drop; heads turn and guitar cases are placed down. The crowd stays intact and engaged deep into the set, mesmerized by Kalk and his bands’ obvious musical power-trio talents and tightness as they sail through Kalk’s vast repertoire of original material.
Nashvillian Justin Kalk brings a highly original yet rooted approach that pays tribute to many familiar genres from Hendrix-flavored rock to Buddy Guy-inspired blues to fiery guitar solos from Stevie Ray, and orchestral compositions that would make even the legendary Frank Zappa proud. Says Kalk “Growing up, the music most relevant to me had an emotional richness like the classic Led Zeppelin records that were driven by storytelling and guitar solos at the same time. We strive for that same level of excellence in our music and hope that fans around the globe will love it too.”
Shake the Forest
Shake the Forest is the culmination of nearly two decades of friendship between musicians Joe Ennis, Joe Schneider, and Todd Bond. All Nashville natives, the guys were exposed to a wide variety of music and began playing at a young age. Joe Ennis and Todd Bond formed their first band together when they were ten years old. Two years later, Ennis and Schneider began a musical relationship that would span several original projects, one of which briefly included Todd.
After Joe Ennis and Todd connected again in December of 2012 and began writing music, they soon added Joe Schneider and Shake the Forest was realized. In August of 2013, the band completed their first EP, Random Rooms. With high energy live shows and eclectic songwriting, Shake the Forest strives to unite listeners with music that is fun and danceable while also thoughtful, soulful, and rocking.
