The Wedding is a five piece American rock band, with members from Fayetteville, AR, Dallas, TX, and Phoenix, AZ. They are known for putting on a high intensity live show. The Wedding has been a band since 2005. In that time they have released 3 eps, 2 lps, and have just finished recording their 3rd full length record to be released later this year. They have toured and/or played with bands like: Anberlin, Relient K, Brian "Head" Welch, Mute Math, Disciple, and House of Heroes to name a few. They have also managed to have 7 #1 singles spending 25 weeks in total at the #1 position on radio. The Wedding is: Matt Shelton (vocals), Cody Driggers (bass), Trevor Sarver (guitar), Adam Thron (guitar), and Matt Jameson (drums)

Pioneer is the story of five Midwest boys who love music. What they thought would only be a summer musical fling developed into tours during spring and winter breaks. Three years later and Pioneer (formerly known as News from Verona) touts national tours with bands like Manic Drive and festivals including Ichthus, Cornerstone and Spirit West coast. Their latest record dropped January 24, 2012, and saw its single, "Treason," climb to #1 on the BDS Rock Charts. Pioneer is: Josh Randolph (vocals, keys), Chad Shirrell (guitar,vocals), Dalton Meyers (guitar), Daniel Voris (drums) and Nick Berry (bass).

Wavorly is a four piece alternative rock band from Nashville, TN. Originally forming in college in Mississippi, the band signed a deal with now-defunct Flicker Records (Sony BMG) in late 2006 and released their debut record "Conquering the Fear of Flight" in 2007, which spawned two Christian Rock radio number ones and their most popular song to date, "Praise and Adore (Some Live Without It)," which spent a lot of time in heavy rotation on many national CHR radio stations. After parting ways with Flicker, the band toured nationwide for the next four years, sharing the stage with bands such as Disciple, Pillar, Blindside, Project 86, Fireflight, House of Heroes, and current tour-mates The Wedding. In late 2011, Wavorly released "The EP," four songs produced by grammy nominated producers Rob Graves and Jasen Rauch and saw a first day digital showing of #15 on the Itunes Alternative charts and an overwhelmingly positive response from reviewers and fans alike. Wavorly is: Dave Stovall (vocals, guitar), Matt Lott (bass, vocals), Seth Farmer (guitar, vocals), and Teddy Boldt (drums).

Satellites & Sirens is a four-piece synth-rock band from Nashville, TN that was formed off of Craigslist in 2008. They have been on a crazy ride ever since. S&S released their debut self-titled record in March 2010 on Word/Warner Bros, garnering them two Dove Award nominations: Rock/Contemporary album of the year, and Rock Song of the Year for their hit single, "Anchor". Not content with their critical success, the band has been touring relentlessly with such varied acts as Disciple, Point of Grace and Decyfer Down. Their second full length "Frequency" was released November 22, 2011, expanding on their unique brand of '80's infused synth pop rock. Satellites & Sirens is: Geoff Hunker (Vocals, Synth, Guitar), Jonathan Dimmel (Drums, Vocals), Dave Willey (Bass, Synth, Vocals), and David Troyer (Guitar, Vocals). Check them out online at Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.
