Most Savage Gentleman - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Most Savage Gentleman
Most Savage Gentlemen is a band based out of Alexandria, VA/ Washington, DC that plays both cover music and original writing. They are the combination of four multi-instrumental musicians with a variety of musical stylings and backgrounds. Together they create a harmonious blend of Rock, Funk, Soul, Hip Hop, R&B, Folk, Go Go and Country. With four part harmony and the incorporation of a wide variety of different instruments and sounds, MSG is able to bring a unique flare to their music whether its covers or originals.

Most Savage Gentlemen have played all over the DC area as well as Virginia, Maryland and Delaware. The Gents have performed on stage next to the Lincoln Memorial for the DC Rock and Roll Marathon, played for over 3000 people at the Washington Nationals Bullpen, traveled to the shores of Dewey Beach to keep the waves rolling in and made the floors shake at Baltimore's Tin Roof Music Hall.

Copper Hill - (Set time: 8:45 PM)
Copper Hill
Copper Hill creates a genre of music that combines the styles of folk, classical, singer-songwriting, and jazz. The group—violinists Willa Finck and Katie Knudsvig, bassist Caroline Samuels, and banjo player Ethan Cypress—refers to this genre as folk-art music.

The band’s honest and relatable music creates a uniquely engaging concert experience. Aiming to connect a variety of audiences, Copper Hill combines the defining aspects of each genre: the accessibility of folk music, the technicality of classical music, the intimate singer-songwriter perspectives, and the spontaneity and active engagement of jazz. It is Copper Hill’s passion and love for these genres, for their individual elements and the way they can be combined into a more meaningful and evocative musical style, that drives and inspires them to create folk-art music. The band’s thoughtful arrangements of traditional folk tunes are harmoniously coupled with their sweet yet sometimes (heavily) sarcasm-tinged style of songwriting.
The members of Copper Hill are classically trained musicians who met at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY and formed in the fall of 2017. They released their debut album, Once Around The Sun, on April 27th, 2019.
Hari Vasan - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
Hari Vasan
Hari Vasan is a singer-songwriter from DC who mixes powerful vocals with intricate and pulsating guitar riffs, creating an ensemble of songs that range from hard rock to soft folk ballads. He released his debut EP in April 2016.

Hari began his music career in 2007 when he uploaded two YouTube cover videos that received 18,000 and 11,000 views, respectively. Over the years, he has performed his original music at a number of DC venues including Jammin Java, Iota, Bossa, Velvet Lounge, Villain and Saint, and has been featured and recognized in many DC festivals and events events including the Smithsonian Music on the Mall series, the Takoma Park Folk Festival, Art all Night in Capital Hill, Intersections Festival, and the Cherry Blossom Festival. Additionally, he opened up for Aparna Nacherla and Ashok Kondabalu of Das Racist at "Be(com)ing Desi in America," a show that was co-arranged by the Smithsonian Natural History Museum. Moreover, he has also been a featured artist at many open mics, including Bloombars, Ireland Four Courts, Subcontinental Drift, and performed his release show to a full house at Bossa in June of 2016. In order to raise funds for his album, he started a PledgeMusic fundraiser that reached 170% of the goal within weeks. Most recently, he was a finalist in this year’s Cherry Blossom Sing into Spring vocal competition, and his song “Silence Comes Easy” was awarded Silver in the Rock/Alternative Category of the 2016 Mid Atlantic Song Contest.
