Safety Meeting
Safety Meeting formed in 2014 in East Plano, Texas.

Late in 2014, Mark Evans, lead vocalist and rhythm guitar, was hosting an open mic Plano's downtown Arts District at a restaurant called Angela's at the Crosswalk. It occurred every Monday evening. It was at Angela's that Mike Smith, keyboards, showed up played a few songs, planting the seeds for what was to become Safety Meeting.

Mike loves hosting dinner parties where musicians can get together and jam in his home studio. At one such party, Erik Malm and Michael Marchioni came to hang out and see what kind of vibe could be created together. The group felt a natural connection and it was clear that there was great potential.

Enter Kris Cordell, drummer. Kris plays for Bone Doggie and the Hickory Street Hellraisers, a respected band out of Denton, Texas. Kris was invited and agreed to come and jam and the final piece immediately fell into place. Mark's home -- now where the band rehearses every week -- soon became the host ofr a weekly jam that has continue to this day.

After a couple of lame name attempts, the band settled on "Safety Meeting," as it seemed to suit the overall attitude and habits of the band.

"Life is fun. But you still have to be prepared for it," says Mark. "Safety Meeting embodies that philosophy. We have songs about life, with different moods and approaches, that also are upbeat and moving... so I think it works."

Droo's Peace Crush
Droo's Peace Crush is fronted by Droo,who,has been active in the Dallas music scene for well over 15 years. While he began his career playing bass with numerous acts, both local & national, he has, for the past 7 years, successfully navigated the local cover music scene, becoming known for his pure, raw vocals, full rhythmic guitar voicing’s, and being able to perform all kinds of pop music from all different styles, genres, and periods. Starting out, he mostly performed solo, but throughout the years, an incredible band has organically formed around him,and now you will often hear 2-4 of them playing out together in bars and venues all over North Texas. There are 7 members of the entire group (including Droo, himself), forming a full sound that stems from many various backgrounds, ethnicities, musical styles, and all-around walks of life. Since their musical elements are as eclectic as the Peace Crush-ers themselves, sonically the band is like nothing else that you've ever heard before...and because of the extremely diverse cover song selections they've performed over the years, their original tunes are a pop-heavy beautiful mix of energetic melodies, sounds, and collaborations that they derive from all these influences. Friends who get to make music together. - DROO'S PEACE CRUSH
