Meet the 2024 Bands:





Sami Michelsen is an artist in every sense of the word. She has a striking ability to reimagine melodies to make them her own, and she does so with both incredible power and vulnerability. Michelsen possesses an alluring range as a mezzo-soprano, one that lends itself to her ability to dance with a delicate falsetto, and dive equally into the depths of a dark and sultry register. Unique in her approach and skilled in her execution, Sami has spent years refining her talent and using it as a platform for her thoughts in lyrics and poetry. Michelsen has been performing for over a decade and currently fronts her latest project, electro-pop trio, Reptile Room.

From rocking festivals to seducing intimate corners throughout the Southeast, the singer has a way of commanding the stage, and captivating anyone within earshot. Michelsen has been featured in Forbes Magazine along with acquiring multiple syncs across various television shows (POWERS, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Teen Mom and many more). Look for Sami to be performing all over Atlanta, along with backing the funk rock legends Mother’s Finest in Europe as well as in the US. Follow her on Instagram (@samisingstheblues) and subscribe to her YouTube Channel - Reptile Room Music. Michelsen is a voice you need to hear, and an artist you will never forget.” - Michelle Swift // The James Fonda

ATL based, All The Locals, are shaped n' molded out of the very bricks that make up their southern metropolis. Soulful backbone, a rocknroll attitude, and a shaky blues breakdown of heartfelt lyrics, these locals, including their unique horn section n' crew, vibe out the best of Atlanta's real image.


10,000 MANIACS

Established in 1981, together now for more than four decades, 10,000 Maniacs remain one of America’s most beloved independent bands. They’ve been cult heroes, mainstream stars and alt-rock trailblazers.
