DNA: A Band of Brothers

DNA, a group of three brothers from Imperial, Missouri are said "without a doubt to be headed for success in the music industry. Strong vocal harmonies, instrumentals, original lyrics and stage presence...the perfect package."

The three brothers: Chuck Callahan, lead guitarist, fiddler and vocalist, Champ Callahan, lead vocalist, pianist and guitarist and Chase Callahan, bassist, cellist, vocalist are all influenced by majar music legends such as Queen, The Beatles, Muse and The Eagles. Their fluidity to their pop-rock sound strikes the listener as something new, fresh and different. The band says they want their music to have positive and creative lyrics, great harmonies and musical excellence.

This band of brothers have a promotional tour in the works that will be in music hot-spots all over the country. DNA is one of those bands that will make it in Nashville and any other city they may visit.  For more information, follow their tour or hear their music including their full length album Plenty of Thoughts, visit: http://www.dnaofficialmusic.com/.

We are thrilled to bring this talented group to MUMFEST all the way from Nashville, TN.

Billy Holton and the Soul Shakers...                       a favorite NC dance band

Billy Holton, founder of the SOUL SHAKERS, lead Guitar, and lead vocals and along with some very talented musicians has formed one of Eastern N.C favorite dance bands. He gets a soulful sound though his Fender Strat, and Twin Amps to produce some very tasty lead and funky rhythm’s.

Berkley Bob Sienkiewicz, bass guitar and vocals, is a Graduate of the Berkley School of Music, and is a bass monster. Bob has no limits and is the back bone of the Soul Shakers rhythm section. Bob’s favorite saying is “Space is the Spice”.

Chris McNally, sax and vocals, puts the Soul in the Shakers with his Sax, plays a leading role in the band as one of the very best sax players around. He is a main stay and very hard worker from road to show time!

Bruce Horton, keys, synth and vocals, is a career musician. He is the Mr. Feel Good of the band, for the music that comes off the tip's of his fingers are most refreshing and with a great vocal ability takes the Soul Shakers to a constant new level.

Mike Ferarra, drums, percussions and vocals, can really ‘cut the cake’. His right foot and left hand sends the vibe right up your backbone.  Between him and bass man Bob, they are the best rhythm section around, bar none!
