Pickwick Commons
If you love something, you give it all you have. This assertion has embodied the members of Pickwick Commons more and more as they have traveled across the United States, spreading their passion for heavy but melodic music and the desire to improve themselves for the ones they love.

Rallying behind the message of their debut single “Friends & Family,” the melodic hardcore group has held tight to the belief that making the world a better place starts on a personal level. Vocalist Adam Loellke and guitarist Colin Fedorchak have continued to write along these lines, preaching self acceptance, but also acknowledgment of their own faults.

With drummer Brandon Stuck and bassist Wesley Holland making up a precise rhythm section, the band has become trademarked by their impassioned and energetic live performances. Releasing the self-produced split EP “Short Lived” in December of 2016, the band has been on the move since with a non-stop touring and recording cycle.

With their DIY mentality, Pickwick Commons has expanded their circle of influence throughout the Midwest and beyond, traveling as far as Texas with plans to go even further in the coming months. Realizing this is where their hearts lie, the band operates on a full-time basis, ready to spread their message until they drop.
Still Standing
Still Standing is a melodic-punk quartet from southern New Jersey. Their wide musical influences make for an "edgier" sound than most melodic or pop-punk bands today. Their mainsprings include everything form Blink 182 to Alkaline Trio, all the way over to Iron Maiden and Rush. They have been performing at clubs, parties, local shows, and even larger venues (TLA - South Street - Philadelphia) from shortly after the band's inception in 2000. Since that time they have acquired a large fan base in the NJ/Pennsylvania area, many independent promoters, airplay (88.9 WBZC - BCC, 92.1 WVLT - Total Chaos, 94.1 WYSP - Loud and Local), and a full-length album. The album entitled "Get in Line", was recorded in December 2000 at Fallout Shelter Studios in Philadelphia, PA. So far the band is doing well, having done a small tour in Vermont, and is preparing for a month-long tour in the Virginia Beach area.
