2011 Band – Nova City

24 08 2011

Nova City

Pop, Punk, Rock, Alternative, Metal
Nova City has a lot of goals and a lot off drive. The band is centered around two lead singers, Ashley Lux and Tory Daral. The band combines a wide range of musical influences to make something that appeals both to the technical musician and the typical radio listener. We’re keeping ourselves diverse enough to play 30min to 1hr openings, full 3 hour sets, and 30min to 1hr original sets. We’re also trying to keep our cover music diverse enough to fit with a variety of different crowds including pop, pop rock, metal, and classic rock interests.

Pawn Shop

Pawn Shop pays tribute to the band Sublime, who in the early nineties, recorded a unique twist of reggae/punk/ska/hip hop that grabbed people and made some deeply devoted fans, including Pawn Shop members.  The band presents the music of Sublime  – not only the mainstream hits but the favorites of hardcore fans as well, to share the love, anger, and energy with more people.    Pawn Shop also can’t sit still and has been expanding their horizons to embrace more music that you may recognize but might be surprised to hear, including old reggae, obscure alt-rock, new country, and unexpected pop hits.  But why stop there?  Do you want to hear a Beatles tune the same old way, or played in a whole new genre?  Pawn Shop challenges you to listen to something different.  Push!

Ben Kent has been performing since age 9.  He has always enjoyed music, showing the first signs of his talent as a toddler singing and dancing around the house.  Influenced by the likes of Maroon 5 and Jason Mraz he began playing guitar and found a natural talent that has grown over these past years.   His parents Will and Marcia have influenced and encouraged his abilities.  

In 2010 he had his 1st public performance, performing solo playing acoustic covers and original music at Cubestock, a charity event sponsored by BAE Systems.   He then auditioned for America’s Got Talent.   Since then he has been developing his repertoire of songs, posting various videos to his YouTube account as “TheKentKid”.  His parents and siblings are proud of his innate abilities and will be supporting his continued musical endeavors along.  Ben is excited to appear once again at Cubestock 2011 with new material for his fans. Look for Ben and familial entourage, parents Will and Marcia and siblings Jessica, Bethany, and Rebecca at this year’s Cubestock event.
