Cascade Crescendo
Cascade Crescendo
Cascade Crescendo, from Portland, Oregon has been crafting their own brand of bluegrass since 2013. Pulling from their vast range of collective influences, they play original, high-energy bluegrass, jamgrass, and Americana music with captivating lead vocals by Hunter White, blazing fast mandolin licks by Aden Beck, and creative, thumping bass lines by Taylor Skiles. Duluth, MN banjo player, Harrison Olk, joined the band in late 2015, bringing with him solid Scruggs-style banjo and high lonesome harmony vocals.

Cascade Crescendo recorded their first studio album in Spring 2016 at The Hallowed Halls in Portland, OR. The album features fiddle player, Allie Kral (Yonder Mountain String Band) on five tracks and a guest appearance by drummer Nick Werth (Yak Attack, Ghost-Note). Cascade Crescendo is gaining steam in 2016, quickly winning over fans across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. They performed on the lineup of the 2016 Northwest String Summit and will be touring the West Coast and beyond this fall and winter.

Cascade Crescendo has... "gained a loyal following with their tightly crafted bluegrass that embraces tradition alongside more progressive, jam-oriented styles." - Glide Magazine

Cascade Crescendo is Hunter White (guitar), Taylor Skiles (upright bass), Aden Beck (mandolin), and Harrison Olk (banjo).
Miles Over Mountains
Miles Over Mountains
Miles Over Mountains is a progressive bluegrass band based in McHenry, IL. Their live shows are high energy, centered around an arsenal of original material and refreshing variety of cover songs served up in their own unique style.
"A four-piece act consisting of guitar, banjo, mandolin, and upright bass MoM provides the listener with a paradoxical calming, yet exciting experience. The band somehow has the power to ease one’s worries while also forcing the crowd into a frenzy of dance." -LiveForLiveMusic.com
Touring through their third year as a band, Miles Over Mountains continues to turn heads across the nation as their momentum, fanbase and touring schedule continue to grow. Since their inception in early 2014, they've performed hundreds of shows at bars, clubs and music festivals with no signs of slowing down. Besides playing every state in the Midwest, the band has been true to it's name touring through the mountain regions of Colorado, Arkansas and Tennessee to name a few.

The 2014, '15 and '16 festival seasons have seen M.O.M. performing at dozens of Midwestern music festivals, including multiple appearances at Shoe Fest (Manteno, IL), Frankfort Bluegrass Fest (Frankfort, IL), and co-hosting the Summer Stomp Music Festival in their hometown of McHenry, IL.
M.O.M. has been the opening act for such groups as Town Mountain, Hot Buttered Rum, Ben Miller Band, Danny Barnes Henhouse Prowlers, Cornmeal, The Big Wu, and many other longtime staples of the music scene.

Collectively with decades of stage experience under their belts, M.O.M. strives to provide the audience with a fun and freeing experience at each show with unique sets every time. The band released their debut album "Five Star Heart Breaker" on March 20, 2015, and have been on the road constantly in support of this record. The band is currently at work on their second full length album due out in early 2017.
