Anders Osborne – 2014 Featured Performer
Renowned musician and Alligator Records recording artist Anders Osborne will be headlining Saturday night at Miami Valley Music Fest. Based out of New Orleans, Guitar Player calls him “the poet laureate of Louisiana’s fertile roots music scene.” Anders is a familiar name in the jam circuit, having toured or played with Keb ‘Mo, Galactic, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, Phil Lesh and more. He’s played Bonnaroo, The High Sierra Festival, The Telluride Blues & Brews Festival, the Hangout Festival, WYEP Summer Music Fest, Central Park SummerStage and has been a fixture at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival for years. His most recent release, Peace has garnered positive reviews from fans and critics alike, adding to an already impressive catologue of music.[youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-XnVISyWZQ]
Shrub – 2014 Featured Performer
Hailing from Columbus, Ohio, the seven piece “Reggae / Rap / Rock” fusion, Shrub, has been rapidly gaining momentum and building a solid international fan base since being voted by readers as High Times Magazine’s Unsigned Band of the Month in September of 2010.
Recently, Shrub released their first full-length album, Highceratops, which debuted in the Top 10 on the iTunes Reggae Charts. The album features guest appearances by C-Money from Slightly Stoopid, Dubmatix, and Kimberly Freeman from One-Eyed Doll.
The band garners comparisons to artists like Sublime, The Dirty Heads, Atmosphere, Gym Class Heroes, and G. Love, but Shrub maintains an innately unique and raw sound all their own. With the addition of new guitar player, Kevin Oliver (former member of the world’s funkiest band, Parliament/Funkadelic – George Clinton), Shrub’s sound has now quickly become full-grown.
