Featured Bands

(click on band name to listen):



The Ohmsboth nights

reggae/rock/funk jam

Dave (lead vocals/guitar) Chet (drums) and Jeff (percussion) are founding members of the old Four Ohms. Four Ohms started Ohmstead Music Festival back in 2001 to provide an alternative to bars and clubs, getting outside and ragin', & giving fresh bands (jncluding themselves) a chance to rock to a righteous audience. Since then, Four Ohms broke up, but the afformentioned 3 called upon local bass maniac Psycho D (Black & Tan Carpet Band, Noctaluca) to keep on as The Ohms. The Ohms have shared the stage with many acts including Badfish, Steel Pulse, JGB w/Melvin Seals, Foreigner and Bad Company. They get down with a unique and funky reggae/rock hybrid that gets the booty movin'!The Ohms just released their 1st EP "Resistance" and are dilligently at work on a full length album.

Mike Perkins

Mike Perkins

Saturday @ 10:15PM acoustic/folk rock

Band Members

Mike's debut solo album, Sway, features several talented musicians from the Columbus, Ohio area. Guests include Ward Scott and Robb McCormick of The Shantee (bass/keyboards), Jerry DePizzo of O.A.R. (saxophone), Megan Palmer (violin), John Zuck (bass) and Dave Weissman (mandolin). In early 2007, the original Shantee keyboardist, Randy Browne, reunited with Mike after three years. Randy now performs at every Mike Perkins show. West-African drummers "Sogbety" Diomande and "Papa" often make an appearance as well, along with local drummer Chris Beal.

AnHonestTune.com says, "Mike sings as he illuminates the shining light of love that beams through us all. Scat singing, strumming his acoustic, and carrying his festive numbers through several different musical phrasings, Perkins' performance launches himself into the hallowed category of artists on the fringe of breaking out to a wider audience."Relix Magazine quotes, "In Mike Perkins, the group has a distinctive singer while the band rocks along with integrity and class."



Saturday @ 8PM rock n roll

"an unbranded stampede of arena-sized riffs, Jazz Fusion complexity and Prog Rock grandeur..."

~ Ezra Waller, CityBeat

Classic Rock Magazine called noctaluca "the cream of some of the new talent emerging today in terms of songsmithery...There are echoes of Pink Floyd, Radiohead, and yes GNR". Following the cult successs of their 2006 debut "Towering the Sum", noctaluca's latest studio release "Still the Wicked Rest" unabashedly embarks into the deeper and darker reaches of America's post-traumatic psyche, holding no punches along the way. From its provocative cover art to the politically spearheaded lyricism and an overall sound redolent of Vietnam-era rock, "Wicked" blows the dust from one of rock n' roll's greatest forgotten inventions: the protest song - and hot-wires it for its own retributive aims.

While many bands are masters of their domain in the studio and can create superior sounding records, often these same bands can fall short in the live arena. But noctaluca consistently has outgunned their own ingenuity in the studio by putting on feverish live performances that at once can mimic the sonic enormity of their records with astounding accuracy while still tapping into a constant and thrashingly turbulent spirit of spontanaeity that consistently earns them the unblinking and devoted wonderment of the audience, no matter how young or old.

Mia Carruthers

Mia Carruthers & the Retros

Friday @ 10PM acoustic/folk

Mia Carruthers was recently featured on MTV's "Taking The Stage". After turning down several record deals, she graduated from Cincinnati's Scool of the Creative & Performing Arts, and has put together her own band: The Retros. She is a rising star, and Ohmstead is proud to showcase the band at Ohmstead 2009!

Background: Family moved from West Chester Township to Cincinnati for Mia to enroll at SCPA as a freshman. Since then she has performed at area coffee houses. Mia comes from a musical family: Her brother, Alex, plays guitar in her band, Mia Carruthers and the Retros. Her singer-songwriter father years ago recorded three albums with Jackbone, a Zanesville rock band.



Rumpke Mountain Boys

Friday LATE NIGHT trashgrass/bluegrass

Founded in 2000 the Rumpke Mountain Boys have spent almost a decade developing their very unique style of Jamgrass. Their spontaneous live shows draw from an evergrowing list of originals mixed with songs from nearly every genre of music. Using bluegrass instruments the Rumpkes intertwine over a century of music, from traditional mountain music to Tom Waits, Jimmy Cliff, John Hartford, The Grateful Dead and everything in between. Based out of Cincinnati, the Rumpke Mountain Boys have appeared at Tall Stacks, Paddle Fest, River Town Breakdown, and many other local events. They have also performed at Hookaville, Terrapin Hills, and hosted Snugglefest & currently co-produce Shamy Bash. Rumpke also headlined the OU Halloween party in Athens, to a receptive crowd of thousands of costume clad party goers. Their efforts have earned them mutltiple CEA(Cincinnati Entertainment Award) nominations and awards. Their first studio album, Family Perspective, is available now.


Jones For Revival

Jones For Revival

Saturday LATE NIGHT Jam/Band/Fusion

Jones For Revival started in the summer of 2004. From the beginning the intention of the band was to try to revive the music scene with fresh, no rules, upbeat jams that everyone could enjoy. Throughout the journey the band has strengthened their ability to project a positive vibe to their listeners and has gained a following of loyal fans who share the same musical understanding and appreciation as they do.

Jones For Revival's live show captures the audiences attention. From the double sax solo's to the mind bending guitar improvisation music lovers can't help but groove to the unique sounds.

"Jones For Revival is a "jam band" par excellence, tightly cohesive throughout their musical explorations."
The Professor - MVLivemusic.com - (9/5/08

The League Of Proper musicians

League Of Proper Musicians

Saturday @ 6PM funk/rock/fusion

The League of Proper Musicians does not have an image, they are not aspiring rock stars, they do not style their hair or paint their finger nails, they do not adhere to the tired and outdated "sex drugs and rock and roll" paradigm. The League of Proper Musicians did not learn poses and stage moves from MTV. They play music. They play funky music with big giant balls. They play music that makes people stop and listen, then hearken back to the days when musicians had to play well to make an album or get a gig, when it was a good thing not to sound like other bands. That originality can be heard in the two albums produced by The League in 2008. They're self-titled album brings together humor and groove in songs like "The Divine Bovine Conquest" and "Onion Loaf Shirt" while showing progressive meter bending chops and prowess in "Devils Meat." The League's second and latest album, Mini Sharks, saw lineup changes that built and expanded upon their already eclectic sound. Mini Sharks takes the listener on a musical odyssey that makes frequent stops in the lands of funk with "Stand Bye", "Vaginamight", Latin fusion "Guermo y Jave", and the progressive rock ode to Cleveland Cavalier great Larry Nance in "Blocked by Nance." It all comes together to create, as one fan put it, "That community dance vibe." That vibe can be best witnessed in their honest, soulful live show that often culminates with a sweaty crowd cavorting in obscene ways. Their performances will inspire, titillate and/or disgust even the most novice or cultured musical fan. It is a spectacle not likely to be replicated by other mortal bands anytime soon. Listen to them; see them; try to be them, try to be with them. You will not be disappointed.
