The Friendship Brigade


Tonya Steiner 

Tonya Steiner loves the old Jazz Standards, artists like Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Patsy Cline, and Nina Simone; but also enjoys newer stylists, Norah Jones, Diana Krall and Helen Welch. Jazz just seems to suit her, the music is wonderful but she strongly believes that it's about adding her own flavor to them and making them her own.

St. Ignatius Band


Sobeit Band

Sobeit is a modern rock band out of Mantua / Shalersville Ohio. They have a nice mix of originals and covers and are versatile enough to play acoustic and rock shows. They can play any venue from large concert halls to bars to coffee houses to festivals to your backyard. Contact them at



The Jobs

The Jobs are fairly new to the music world. The guys have a diverse sound with indie sensibilities- pulling influences of rock, garage, surf, and punk- which are often wound together with falsettos and pop hooks. The group consists of three members: Tom Heun (guitar and vocals), Trevor Meyer (guitar and vocals), and Jon Schlote (drums) and is based out of the Cleveland, Ohio area. The name "The Jobs" was chosen because none of the members had a job in their field of study when the band was formed in 2012. Fortunately, the group found something they all enjoy doing without a degree- creating music.
