Edsel West (Session A)

Comprised of an all-star cast of musicians, members of Edsel West have written hits for artist such as Montgomery Gentry, worked as in-demand session/studio players and toured the world, and shared stages with everyone from Sara Evans to Alice Cooper. Together they provide a dynamite show with the #1 priority of making sure you have as much fun as they do.

Only Edsel West can bring you a combination of Johnny Cash, James Brown, the Rolling Stones, Prince, Merle Haggard, The Commodores, the Allman Brothers, the Clash, Keith Urban and Springsteen and make it sound like they all belong together.

The Aquaducks

From their inception, the group has provided a unique and powerful sound. “Our first show was a battle of the bands at Belmont University, that we won.” reflects guitarist Zach Sheffler, “the recognition was a great start for a brand new band.” While these recognitions in Nashville are creating a nice resume for the group, it is the trail of fans across the southeast that is the main priority. “We aim to create an experience that the fans will appreciate and share amongst other funk/soul fans. I want little aqua-ducklings everywhere.” Says lead vocalist Cavanaugh Mims concerning the future for The Aquaducks.
