Wizard Island

Wizard Island is an electronic producer duo based in the Pacific Northwest. Blending acoustic instruments and percussion with traditional EDM synths and rhythms, they create lush soundscapes and imagery reminiscent of their scenic upbringing.

Richard Lathrop, better known by his stage name Ghostnaps, is a DJ and record producer based in Eugene.  Although his music is laid-back electronic, at a Ghostnaps show you can expect a high-energy mix of electronic and rap sounds.

Kingbird, a young trio from South Eugene, blends house music with Latin rhythms and acoustic drums. Kingbird's sound is contagious and will make you dance!





Alden Street

The music collective named Alden Street is primarily a performance band that has just entered the flourishing Eugene music scene. The band consists of four jam-loving friends; Spencer Misfeldt (bass guitar), Gibsen Andresen (lead guitar), Dylan Squires (front man) and the one only Alden Mcwayne (drums) who inspired the band’s name (Alder St, Eugene).  The Alden St. sound is reminiscent of classic rock with a groovy twist, so be prepared to dance and have a good time when our name is on the line up!





Khalil Romeo

Cincinnati, Ohio born; Eugene, Oregon raised, Khalil Romeo is the creative fusion of both regions and everywhere in between.  With artistic influences such as Drake, Frank Ocean, Pi’erre Bourne and Sonder, Khalil’s creative potential is limitless. Blending elements of modern hip-hop and R&B as well as doubling as an artist and producer, Khalil governs the direction of his own music.

However, even with unbounded talent Khalil still has a story to tell; a story of anxieties, relationships, goals, visions and deep introspection. Yet, it’s the vulnerability and relate-ability that’s ever present in all of his work that keeps listeners glued. From having to overcome a lack of self-confidence, understanding that his own expression is just as important as anyone else, or avoiding distractions and seeing his vision through, Khalil is evolving and we get to see it all firsthand in his music.





Masonn Deforest



https://soundcloud.com/masonndeforest-75974767

Houston, Texas born singer/songwriter Masonn Deforest is taking over the city of Eugene by storm with his refreshing R&B/soul sound and his drive to put himself and his city on the map. Masonn uses lyrics about love, heartbreak, self-drive and much more to make his music relatable to the listener. With inspirations like Bryson Tiller, PARTYNEXTDOOR, The Weeknd, Tory Lanez, Jodeci, and Oregon’s very own TYuS; Masonn has learned to bring a ton of engaging flows, melodies, harmonies and lyrics to his music -- making him a solid, well rounded vocalist. Even with R&B being Masonn’s main sound, he loves to have fun rapping and singing on bouncy trap beats, as well as laying down vocals on pop and EDM/dance tracks.  This makes Masonn’s catalog that much more appealing to different ears. A Masonn Deforest show is full of promised good vibes.
