Cool Company
Text BK1 to 69866
Cool Company started off the show with an abundance of groove, an impressive falsetto, and an equally impressive haircut. Watch for some dope early 2000s inspired jams.

Company of Selves
Text BK5 to 69866
This band’s layered, textured tunes filled the space with an energy that was inescapable. Front man Christopher Hoffman songs about conspiracy theories and ghoul-hunting TV shows were weird-cool in surprising ways.

The Nat Osborn Band
Text BK8 to 69866
There’s not a weak link among showman Nat Osborn’s band, who showed off their raw talent and musicianship, along with some serious Louisiana horns. Watch out for Nat, whose “wicked piano solo put it away at the end,” according to guest judge Caryn Havlik.
