Sponge
Sponge
Sponge has proven to be one of the Motor City's heaviest hitters after gaining international notoriety with their debut album "Rotting Piñata” (Sony). Emerging from Detroit with hits like "Plowed" and "Molly (16 Candles)" Sponge received massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV. Both “Plowed” and “Molly” hit #5 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Charts, catapulting “Rotting Piñata” to Gold, and ultimately Platinum status.

Sponge's follow up CD, the critically lauded “Wax Ecstatic” (Columbia) scored additional top ten Billboard hits including "Wax Ecstatic" and "Have You Seen Mary?" The band’s music was also featured in popular movies “The Craft,” “Chasing Amy,” “Mall Rats” and “Empire Records.” Sponge’s star continued to rise with network appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and the “Conan O’Brien Show.”

Sponge’s subsequent releases “New Pop Sunday,” “For All The Drugs in The World,” “The Man,” “Galore Galore,” and “Destroy the Boy,” showcased the band’s swirling sonic attack, rooted in 70's glam and of course, the Motor City influences of The Stooges, The MC5 and Motown-but still sounding distinctly like no one else.

“Plowed” continues to be the band’s signature rock track, having been spotlighted on Guitar Hero’s “Warriors of Rock – 90’s Rock Track Pack” – and on the Paper Jamz Guitar Series 2, in addition to the soundtrack for the Gerard Butler surf movie “Chasing Mavericks.”

Sponge is now touring in support of a brand new release – “Stop the Bleeding.” The full-length disc incorporates the traditional “Sponge sound” in addition to exploring edgier, industrial grooves, most apparent on the band’s twisted cover of “Time in a Bottle.”

Having shared stages the world over with Guns N’ Roses, Nickelback, Iggy Pop, Soundgarden, Alice in Chains, Kiss, to name just a few, Sponge continues to be one of rock’s most sought after live acts. Front man Vinnie Dombroski captivates audiences with his powerful voice, heart-on-his-sleeve lyrics and high-octane stage presence.

Now as part of the stellar Summerland Tour – hitting sheds and amphitheatres across the U.S. this summer, Sponge is poised to bring its potent brand of Detroit rock to the masses, once again proving that rock never stops.
Hero Jr.
Hero Jr.
HERO JR. has a reputation for playing different shows each night, often stretching their well-crafted rock tunes into epic jams. On tour since 2012, the band has played more than 600 shows across America, including support for Alice Cooper, Tom Petty, Queensrÿche and other established rock artists. Their new album "Sometimes You Just Gotta Give It The Business" was recorded live to analog tape in just 48 hours, with the band performing sides one and two of the record in sequence for the definitive Hero Jr. experience.

HERO JR. is a four-piece rock band from Indianapolis with an inspired blend of Black Sabbath influenced British Rock and Nirvana-esque American Punk / Grunge, yielding a modern rock force to be reckoned with. Having supported major headlining acts such as Tom Petty, The Offspring, The Answer, Tantric and more, Hero Jr. is truly in their element live on stage, performing an average of 175 shows each year at clubs and festivals, with no two shows the same. Sharing the same values as legendary audio pioneer Klipsch, Hero Jr. is one of the few bands featured in their Emerging Artists program, with both parties holding in high esteem a respect to confidence, product quality and in-your-face volume. In terms of work ethic and influences, Hero Jr. is an old school band, but their crisp live sound sets the bar for “real” modern rock music.
