The Jack Fords
The Jack Fords
Who Are They?:
Formed in 2005 at the welcoming roots rock Cleveland confines of the Town Fryer , the Jack Fords were formed when Bobby Latina and Brent Kirby met and started playing music together that seared with the influence of Gram Parsons/Flying Burrito Brothers, the Band, Bob Dylan, Faces, Rolling Stones, Black Crowes, Uncle Tupelo, Springsteen, to name a few.

Rounding out the seasoned lineup is Ed “Angel” Sotelo on bass (New Lou Reeds, Cobra Verde), and Greg Campolieti on drums (River Junction, The Shizz and many others). This solid rhythm section supplies the foundation for Brent and Bobby to present the tunes with a charismatic, confident swagger.
Oldboy
Oldboy
Oldboy is a Cleveland based Rock/ Folk/ Roots band. A 6 piece, sometimes more, sometimes less. They enjoy playing local venues and festivals.

At the band’s helm and on lead vocals is Shawn Brewster. Originally solo, he found Michael Kinsella and formed the band.

Backing Shawn in vocals and manning his “2 string bass” is Michael Kinsella. On guitar is Patrick Stephan. Shelby Sangdahl joins them on cello. Kevin Suman on drums. And Stacey Mielnik sings with the band.

Oldboy understands the blue collar mentality of musicians working hard to put together good music, and good shows. Making a night we can all remember is very important to them. Oldboy has played with national acts such as John Oates, Langhorne Slim, Nathaniel Rateliff and the Wheel, Hot water music, Joe Pug, and The Low Anthem.

Oldboy released their debut full length album Covered in Sound at the end of 2012. The album according to Cleveland Scene Magazine has a ” cool, cinematic quality to it”. The band wanted to keep the album production in their hometown, so they recorded it at the Whiteout Audio Studios in Cleveland.
