    Live Thru Wednesday is a 3-piece Reggae/Rock/Ska band from the Westville, IL area who formed in the fall of 2015. Since the spring of 2016, they’ve played an upwards of 75+ local shows around the Danville, Champaign-Urbana and Covington, IN areas, with an eclectic style ranging anywhere from Sublime, to 311, to Pepper.

    The line-up currently consists of Caleb Seripinas (guitar/vocals), John Seripinas (Bass/vocals), and Cody Guyer (percussion).

    In addition to multiple shows played in the area, the group has also had 2 different E.P. tracks to make local radio airplay, which includes local CU radio stations 107.1 WPGU University of Illinois, 88.7 WPCD Parkland CC, and 90.1 WEFT Community Radio. After laying down a 4 track E.P. last summer, the band is currently in the studio (courtesy of Rebelsfare Collective Studios) recording a full-length, 12-track L.P, which should be released by the spring of 2019.

    Listen to them here.

    Mid-October, a pop-folk duo, based out of Urbana, IL, is the partnership between Jonathon Parrish and Therese Brown. The two met while putting together a band in Jonathon’s garage. For him it was love at first sight. For Therese, not so much. Through persistence and determination, from the beginning of that summer to the middle of October, Jonathon finally had changed her mind. She had fallen for him. After that, they paired their musical talents together and with beautiful, well-blended harmonies and fantastically written original love songs, are playing venues all of Illinois. They hope to remind their audiences that true passion and love can come from the heart and be put into music.

    No cover charge.
