Null Device
Null Device has been making buoyant electronic pop music for 20 years. Along the way they’ve borrowed Bollywood songs, Arabic and Indian percussion, 9th-century Sufi poetry, and small string ensembles; but at the core they’ve always been a pop group writing smart, catchy electronic songs. While there’s an undeniable retro element to the music – the band members all share an abiding love of 80′s synthpop – it’s been fused with current dance-pop styles and modern production.Their last US tour netted them slightly over $16 of pure profit, so they’re clearly doing something right.Their most recent album, Perihelion, was released in July, 2013. Featuring songs of wry wit (“The One Who Came After Me”) and songs of heartbreaking sincerity (“Torchlights”), club stormers (“The One Who Came After Me”) and cinematic arrangements (“Metaphysic”), it is their most polished and inventive work to date.

Potts & Pans Steel Band
Created during the summer of 2011 by Matt Potts to fill the void left after leaving Northern Illinois University and realizing that there were little to no opportunities to play in a steelpan ensemble, Potts and Pans is devoted to allowing panists the opportunity to continue growing. Being just a part of the larger not-for-profit Potts & Pans organization, the steelband helps bring more attention and draws interest to the organization. The organization as a whole is about spreading pan knowledge and educating communities about the steelpan.
