They recently toured California and Alaska, they annually headline Myrtle Beach Bike Week in South Carolina (at SBB 4 Corners and Myrtle Beach Hard Rock Cafe), The Indian Larry Block Party in Brooklyn NY, Dee Snider's Bikers For Babies, as well as various events for

Eyes of the Nile - Iron Maiden Tribute
Eyes of the Nile - Iron Maiden Tribute
Eyes of the Nile is a Washington, DC metro area based Iron Maiden tribute band.

Eyes of the Nile formed in late summer of 2015, when Chris answered a Craigslist ad placed by Navid for a Maiden tribute. A few emails and a voice memo recording of the chorus of "Flight of Icarus" later, the two realized they knew each other and had crossed paths in the Northern Virginia music scene, had a mutual respect for each other's work, and decided to recruit other musicians to play the classic Maiden catalog. Chris is a conservatory trained professional percussionist with the Navy band in Washington DC, who has also played countless shows with prominent DC area cover band Dr. FU. Navid is currently the vocalist/guitarist and main songwriter in Iris Divine, a progressive metal band signed to Sensory Records. Several auditions later, the guitar team of Daniel Tidwell (vocalist/ guitarist/ songwriter of Terracide) and Jason Hurley, and finally, DC transplant Jonathan Kennedy on bass.

With a shared love for the music of Iron Maiden, Eyes of the Nile is committed to delivering the songs with intensity and emotion; while you may hear a vibrato reminiscent of Bruce Dickinson, Harris' signature Fender bass tone, or Clive and Nicko's rhythm nuances, the band has chosen to forego stage props and costumes (although an Eddie the 'Ead might pop up at any time), and keeps the focus where it belongs - on the music of Iron Maiden, some of the greatest in the history of heavy metal.

Bastards of Reality - Black Sabbath Tribute
Bastards of Reality - Black Sabbath Tribute
Bastards of Reality is a Black Sabbath tribute band from Baltimore MD. Drawn together by a love of the music, they find themselves possessed by the awesomeness that is Black Sabbath.

All members have been active in the Baltimore area for years and have toured extensively throughout the United States.

Each member knows the delicate touch one gives to an original composition and applies that to the amazing music of Black Sabbath.

Formed almost by accident, it was decided "Hey, since we don't have a band for the third slot, let's just jam on some Sabbath tunes and have some fun". In performing the tunes, the power of Sabbath overcame them. They embraced the tunes wholly and were possessed by the power of the music. It was a near spiritual experience and they knew it wouldn't be the last time they'd play this music.

Since then, they've fine tuned their repertoire and have sorted out the best lineup to bring this music alive. The power of Black Sabbath is revealed at each performance.
