Flash In A Pan
Flash In A Pan
Flash in a Pan is folk and grass stringband from Iowa City, IA. Founded in 2012, the band was named on the assumption that they would play two shows and dissolve. After many line-up changes the band is still playing with no end in sight.
In their 5 years, they have played with big names in bluegrass including Yonder Mountain, Green Sky Bluegrass, Jeff Austin, and The Travellin’ McCourys, as well as up-and-coming artists like The Lil Smokies, Horseshoes and Hand Grenades, and Old Salt Union. Not out of place at large music festivals, you might catch this band anywhere from street corners or weddings to barn parties or red carpet events.
The current line-up, comprised of Blake Daly, Alex Flesher, Max Lipnick, and Loxley Eckles released their first studio album Off The Rails in April of 2017 and their sophomore album Folklore in June of 2018. Both albums were recorded at Flat Black Studios by engineer Luke Tweedy.

Flash in a Pan brings a fun mix of folk music of many shades. Noted for their shining harmonies, provocative compositions, and heart-felt performances, Flash in a Pan dishes out a sound that is all at once familiar and refreshingly different.
Reggae Rapids
Reggae Rapids
Reggae Rapids is a captivating live music experience that is sure to get you feeling the rhythm!
The group’s sound brings a unique blend of bassy hip-hop with the classic vibes of reggae. The fusion of booming bass lines, skanky guitars, and rolling bongo fills is held together with conscious lyricism and messages of peace, unity, and compassion.
Reggae Rapids’ first project was released on Soundcloud and YouTube in March of 2017 and the group is currently in the studio working on a brand new original album. The first two singles from the album, ‘Smoke Everyday’ & ‘For The Soul’, are currently available on Spotify, Apple Music, and most major music platforms. The official music video for ‘Smoke Everyday’ is also out now on YouTube.
Reggae Rapids continues to make lasting impressions on music-lovers show after show. Performing locally, regionally, and nationally over the last two years has gathered a fan-base of loyal supporters who continue to share the music and propel the group forward.
