Michigan-based, Pleasantly Aggressive Folk Duo Nervous but Excited (Kate Peterson & Sarah Cleaver) is two songwriters, two singers, three guitars, a mandolin, a violin, a ukulele, a few harmonicas, dead-on harmony, some vaguely choreographed dancing, an impressive amount of laughter and a glockinspiel. Their original repertoire ranges in topic from smart, introspective narratives to the tactfully political… interspersed with songs of love and loss that will undoubtedly tug on your heart.
Mansfield Park is a group of Detroit based musicians with a common goal of creating great music with a common message for all. A four piece hard rock unit, Bob Libres vocals, Kenny Hill guitars, Chad Campbell bass and PaulE drums.
Mansfield park has been together for about 4 years and was the brainchild of brothers Kenny Hill and PaulE, who felt it was time to unleash the as of yet musical power, melody, groove and utter musicality that had been brewing within the brothers for years.With the additions of Bob and Chad, Mansfield Park was complete.

"Sprawling psych-pop-folk collective polishes the jangle 'n' bash with hooks and harmonies to soothe the savage bohemian. The kind of thing that could be a good backdrop for bar-brawling fun… Dashes of harmonica, twittering keyboards, female backing vocals and a well-defined rhythm section… [The Bell Beat] pretty much incorporate all the successful dimensions of American pop."
