Empire Cats - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Empire Cats
70's inspired, guitar driven hooks with a glam edge. Looks and sounds like the spawn of a 3-way between Aerosmith, Cheap Trick and The Sweet.
Yellow No. 5 - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Yellow No. 5
Yellow No.5-
The originators of organic hip-hop (ɔrˈgænɪk hɪp hɑp): An authentically evolved musical style channeling the tonal qualities of jazz, funk, and old-school hip hop. Yellow No.5 curates the live experience by continually measuring and distilling the crowd’s vibe into a tonic of elation and F-U-N(k). Erick Fleming describes Yellow No. 5’s constant evolution of style as the form and function of “straight art”. This expression thru music is an ebb and flow of songwriting, emotion and live connection. Magic is created by channeling multiple musical styles in to a transcendent party resulting in honest emotion and FUN(k). Erick Fleming Aka Texas Wolf (guitar, vocals) - Started writing songs in the 6th grade. Erick is the shepherd of the sound, enjoying the instant gratification playing to and transporting the audience to another place. Mac Bain (drums) - Self taught on the piano. Mac Bain strives for the elation of the audience through collaboration and musical evolution. The drive of a calm, groovy beat and refined repetition develops the surreal responsibility of driving the party and sound. S. Price (saxophone) - Inspired by the real, values the different, strives to find the components of sound that will not make you hear, but feel the music. Real music makes you want to do something, be something, write something…it transcends sound into action. The evolution of music should parallel your own growth, forcing you to leave something behind that means something.

Joe Goodfunk (bass) – First instrument was the upright bass and later most influenced by the energy of punk rock. Joe is the glue that adheres the harmonic & melodic pole of the ensemble to the rhythmic pole. He is the constant in a sea of variables, the magnet that keeps the quintet grounded to the principles of funk.

Heath Fisher (vocals/scratches)– College dropout/pedigreed MC. Heath displays a range of rhythmic flows, various meters and atypical rhyme schemes. Heath is an abstract lyricist & songwriter whose aim is to “attack subject matter that has otherwise remained untouched” while connecting and “having fun”, transforming the spaceship into a party and steering it into unkown realms.
