Electric Voodoo | Electric Voodoo is a band out of St. Peters whose members originate out of a culmination of previous bands. We bring to the table an original blend of many musical genres tightly woven together with the strands of rock. To really describe what we sound like accurately, you have to hear it. Just about everybody can find something to love in our music. Catch a show and decide for yourself what you like the most.

The Otto Modest | A St. Louis-based band with a name lifted from a 90-year-old gravestone, The Otto Modest has fused orchestrated modern rock with the acoustic gentility of country and gospel to forge their own electric and unique sound. Songwriter and singer Josh Evans is accompanied by Collin Giles on keyboard and guitar, Jason Gregory on drums, Aaron Schafer on guitar, bass and keyboard, and James Vandike on bass and guitar. Live, The Otto Modest’s boundless energy engulfs the stage with a wave of sound that comes crashing over the crowd and keeps their attention until the last note has floated away.

West of Sky | Brought together by a rare level of musical chemistry, West of Sky is an emerging trio creating modern groove music. Scott, Rich and Brian all have musical backgrounds reflective of the idioms of rock, soul, reggae, funk, world music, jazz and punk. Live, the band spans the spectrum from slick, soul-inflected grooves to textural funk excursions, to intense and exotic groove-rock.
