The newly revitalized 14-member Jazz Guardians are a talented ensemble whose diverse and dynamic sound are a tribute to the celebrated American art form of Jazz. The music of many of the legendary pioneers of Jazz such as Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Miles Davis and Wes Montgomery form the core of the Jazz Guardians' repertoire. The "Guardians" also infuse the energy and emotion of Frank Sinatra, Chick Corea, Harry Connick Jr. and the Gordon Goodwin Big Phat Band into their shows. The Jazz Guardians have been featured at Jazz Festivals around the United States, performing with Jazz greats Louis Bellson, Cab Calloway, Bill Watrous, Jamey Aebersold, Joey Tartell and Andy Martin among others. In addition to public performances, the Jazz Guardians conduct master classes and clinics for many of the finest universities and high school music programs around the country. Most recently the "Guardians" performed at the University of Louisville, North Carolina State University, the College of the Ozarks and the American Jazz Museum in Kansas City, Missouri.

Outshyne is on the move in 2012 and have their sights set on the completion of their sophomore album produced by Jeffrey Steele & Chip Matthews. With a unique sound that sets them apart from other artists, this up & coming band is working hard to make a name for themselves in a highly competitive industry. Formed in 2007, the group consists of five guys from South Carolina whose deep seeded southern roots have been the foundation for their edgy, country rock sound. The band has taken a seemingly successful grassroots approach to growing their brand. Exposure on Clear Channel and XM Nashville11/57 has been fundamental in growing their popularity. With just shy of 9,500 facebook fans & over 200,000 total youtube views the band is beginning to make their mark. In 2011, Outshyne played nearly 200 shows, sharing the stage with artists such as Gary Allan, Joe Nichols, Justin Moore, Tracey Lawrence, Colt Ford, Lee Brice, Eric Church & Trent Tomlinson. While most of those shows were in the Southeast there are plans to expand in to new regions in 2012.
