Kopecky Family Band
Kopecky Family Band
Like all families, Kopecky Family Band beats with the same heart and writes in the same blood. 'The Family' began creating music together in Nashville, Tennessee in the Fall of 2007. What began as late night talks about life and dreams gradually flowed into eccentric and beautiful music that has led to numerous tours, including adventures to CMJ, SXSW and Bonnaroo, three EP releases and friendships across the country.

Meet the Kopecky Family Band from Nashville:

Leading the family are singers Gabe and Kelsey, along with Steven (lead guitar), Corey (bass), Markus (cello), and David (drums). The music is emotive, and evokes raw honesty and vulnerability, whilst capturing your attention through its unmistakable power and presence. The sounds created by the booming and orchestral-like 6-piece challenge the listener's ear while still offering sweet melodies to sing along with.

The family has a time-line with oodles of notable events including their 2008 CD release party for the Embraces EP. The party was the talk of the town with its theatrical décor, black tie dress code, and opening act of a string quartet. Excitement continued into the fall of '09 when the Kopecky Family's performance took the Next Big Nashville Music Festival by surprise.

In the spring of 2010, it was time for the family to pack into their 15-passenger van (which was lovingly called "The War Wagon") and head to Austin, TX for their showcase at SXSW as one of ASCAP's notable bands to watch. A follow up performance at Next Big Nashville in 2010 had A & R reps scurrying to put their Blackberrys away and listen. When in the studio with Partners in Crime, Russ Long and Chris Grainger (Wilco, Sixpence None the Richer), the Kopecky clan produced The Disaster EP which was released in August 2010.

The Kopeckys followed up SXSW with a mammoth CMJ 2010, where they won over NPR's own Bob Boilen and were invited to play at the official Paste Magazine showcase before becoming the darlings of 'Store-Cute' and online retailer, Fred Flare.

Straight back into the studio after CMJ, the band produced the follow up to The Disaster, the perfect compliment entitled Of Epic Proportions. The EP is comprised of digital B-Sides & rarities, featuring crowd favorite "Howlin' at the Moon", and a remix of "God & Me" that explores the band's varied and broad scope to produce amazing and diverse sounds.

Since then, the band released a limited edition split 7″ vinyl with Seattle friends Ivan & Alyosha, and returned to Austin yet again for SXSW. The band played the infamous Paste Magazine showcase, Schubas Day Party, Next Big Nashville and performed for Austin's KUT during the festival. And to keep themselves really busy in 2011, the band attended Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival for the first time as performers. Notching up 3 amazing sets during the festival and amassing several new friends and fans along the way.

The Broken Numbers Band
The Broken Numbers Band
"The Broken Numbers Band, a multi-instrumental 5 piece based out of Los Angeles, California, play feel good, american roots rock music, combining crafted and tasteful songwriting with sweet vocal harmonies, an honest and sincere work ethic, and a classic musical sensibility that is clearly drawn from the soil and from the soul."
Bitchinstereo
With an unreleased record, no website, no Facebook URL, no twitter name, and two illusive founding members, the only history to be found of bitchinstereo is in the haunting music and lyrics of this virtually unheard of band. joined by Jen Turner, Jason Lader and Max Allyn, this live experience will be a dark romantic journey through the lives of two lovers never meant to be in a band.
Thrillionaire

Jen Turner, formerly of Here We Go Magic, picks up the guitar again, revisiting her days with Natalie Merchant and Furslide, with Henrietta Tiefenthaler on bass, programming and sound design.

Henrietta and Jen sing lush, polyphonic melodies over hard motorik beats drawn from classic Krautrock bands like Can and Neu!

For this Satellite show, they will be joined by Steve Sidelynk on drums and Billy Mohler on bass.

Their highly anticipated debut album will be finished by the end of this year with its release scheduled for summer 2013.
