The Smile Makers is the musical brainchild of Eric Donaldson and Nicole Sutka. These two multifaceted musicians draw influences from funk, folk, ska, bluegrass, and alt-rock. Their original music mixes seamless vocal harmonies with poetically crafted lyrics to create songs and performances that have been described by reviewers as "hauntingly beautiful." Their music is full of nuances and instrumental gems, encapsulating troubled experiences with melodies that conjure up both hope and foreboding. The cross-genre influences and complex rhythmic song structures put them in a musical genre all their own. This group is not all cute and cuddly. Their softer side is well-balanced with rip-rocking tunes and roaring bass lines that will make you want to get up and dance. Eric Donaldson (vox, guitars, ukelele, harmonica), Nicole Sutka (vox, bass guitars, flute, recorders, piano), Jeff Mac (electric guitars).

The Killdevils are Chris Monti and Jacob Haller, Providence, RI-based musicians who have been playing together in a variety of bands (blues, hip-hop, afro-beat, rock & roll) since 2002. Their Americana and blues-inflected music has been compared to that of Paul Geremia, Arlo Guthrie, and Greg Brown, and described as fresh, catchy, and quirky. The Killdevils are heavily influenced by country blues greats like Robert Johnson and Blind Willie McTell, as well as Jimmy Yancy, Louis Jordan and others. Monti and Haller are also great fans of early American country and traditional music.
