Nick Alligood
February 13th, 2015
Nick Alligood is a Southern-Born force that can not be denied. Hailing from the state of Georgia that has produced some of Country Music’s most prominent Artists, Musicians, and Songwriters; Nick combines every element of the South to demand and retain attention from fans nationwide. Since day one, there has been a hunger to “fill the boots” of artist’s that have paved the ways for the modern industry, while keeping true to his own roots. Taking home the Georgia Music Awards Male Vocalist of the Year in only the second year of being a solo artist, says a lot. And, showing up in boots with a firm handshake can only help show there is promise in a world that is starting to be shadowed by negativity. This great nation was built with hard work, and there is no denying the ethic that has gotten Nick to the point where he is at today. Helping to give a voice back to the class that demands one so powerfully, Nick doesn’t speak or sing with any twang or southern draws; he announces his message with a strong American Accent.

Chris Bandi
February 24th, 2015
Raised on country and rock n roll, Chris’ love for music began at a young age. Whether it was in his dad’s car or in his family’s living room, Chris would sing everything from Elvis and Garth Brooks to Bruce Springsteen and Cat Stevens.

In high school Chris joined a band in St. Louis, Missouri. They became rather famous around the area winning several Battle of the Bands and opening for national touring acts. After high school Chris dropped the music to focus on college. Around a year ago, Chris picked up his guitar after a three-year hiatus and started singing again – this time country and southern rock. A few short months after he started playing again, he had the opportunity to audition for American Idol! Validating that he can sing, he made it through the auditions and to Hollywood week! Now Chris wants to keep things going with his music.

Though country is what he sings today, he appreciates all genres of music.

Recently, Chris was introduced to a great producer out of Nashville. The two started collaborating on a demo CD of several of his original songs and expect it to be complete sometime this summer.
