Peter Manhart is the guitarist and lead singer of the Chicago alternative rock band Molehill. Peter started playing classical piano at the age of 3 and has never really known life without music. After a brief stint as a piano major in college, he decided to focus on electric guitar and rock music. Molehill began as a very guitar-heavy alternative rock band, but has recently been experimenting with everything from electro-pop to "Gregorian-chant-meets-hip-hop". Peter loves all kinds of music, his tastes and style are always evolving, and he is grateful for any opportunity to perform or watch live music.

Stephen Francis has spent the last 9 years touring and fronting with the Chicago based band Model Stranger. Dubbed "rock n' roll classicists" and "an eclectic synthesis of psychedelic grunge and classic rock" by Chicago press, Model Stranger's sound and unique look has pleased rock n' roll purists and indie rock fans.

As a solo artist Stephen uses the opportunity to showcase a different set of songs and on occasion explore stripped down version of Model Stranger music.

Scott Siskind is a signer songwriter based out of Baltimore, Maryland. He is the frontman for rock quintet Vinny Vegas, but also performs often as a solo act, performing a mix of his own originals as well as stripped down, acoustic versions of Vinny Vegas songs. His music is raw, heartfelt, and emotive.
