The Stims
The Stims got their start in Salisbury, MD playing open mics together. Once they got their first gig they never looked back. Known for blending unique harmonies with organically acoustic music they took off up and down the east coast. In June of 2011 Billy Litz joined up with the band, adding his cool keyboard licks and song writing abilities to some great tracks. Playing at venues such as Mango's in Bethany, Harborside in Ocean City, and Market Street in Salisbury The Stims continue to expand their music and audience.

MEMBERS Brian Mahoney, Zach Coffman


PRESS “If you haven't heard a couple of young guys out of Salisbury calling themselves The Stims then you'd better get up to theRio Grande Tiki Bar - but get there early cuz this duo is packin' the house! And it's no wonder with their unique and fresh style to lots of new tunes and great rock oldies! With just a six-string and a set of bongos, less is definitely more with this tight twosome! On bongos Zach Coffman is right on with the cool rhythms and his gritty, earthy vocals are a perfect compliment to the smooth voicings and nimble fingers of his partner on six-string, Brian Mahoney. And they do everything from folk-rock to alternative to reggae with a sound that's full and energetic but with that relax-in-the-islands touch. Yeah, there's just something about bongos. I just loved 'em and so did the crowd with standing room only!”  Brenda Golden - The Coconut Times

The Hot Meals
Hailing from Salisbury, Maryland, The Hot Meals are a funky mix of many types of music. This band shifts its sound effortlessly between the genres of reggae, blues, rock, hip hop, funk, soul, and electronica. In addition to the band’s progressive style, it’s known for varied choices in cover songs, comedic banter, musical improvisation, and bizarre, danceable originals —all aimed to entertain a variety of audiences.

Sean Miller-Drums, John Cox-Guitar and Vocals, K.T.-Guitar and Vocals, Justin Crockett-Bass

“It's a little hard to pin down a band like The Hot Meals. Their songs cross so many styles of music that, at times they become a happy sonic blur. Peel back the layers and you can hear influences as different as Jimi Hendrix, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bob Marley, Parliament-Funkadelic and fusion-era Miles Davis. The only real constant is the lyrics, equal parts Frank Zappa and Adam Sandler, and all written about food.” Josh Davis - Go! Magazine

Something Grey formerly known as Semiblind
Something Grey was formed in September of 2003 bringing together musicians from all over Delmarva. Over the years they have propelled themselves to the forefront of the local and regional music scenes through hard work, consistency, a dedication to stellar stage shows, and a positive word of mouth reputation as one of the best. Their variety of cover songs span decades and genres, guaranteeing to please audiences from all walks of life. Their original music holds its own with catchy lyrics and smokin’ guitar solos. With the powerful presence the band and their music provides they are sure to satisfy. 

Michele - Vocals, Jim - Lead Guitar/Vocals, Rich - Bass Guitar, Mike - Drums
