**ERIC TESSMER BAND**

Eric James Tessmer, actually named after guitar giants Eric Clapton and Jimi Hendrix, is an extraordinary guitarist, musician, singer and songwriter hailing from Austin, TX. He is widely considered one of the most vibrant guitarists to follow in the footsteps of blues-rock legends such as Stevie Ray Vaughan and his namesake predecessors. His live shows have captured audiences' attention across the United States as power-packed sessions of wickedly fast and precise licks that can light the house on fire without the need for lighter fluid. 
 
Born and raised outside of the small town of Richland Center, Wisconsin, Tessmer began playing at a young age, inspired by his father and grandmother. In 2000, he moved to Austin at the age of 19 to play gigs with numerous musicians and bands, earning local credibility as he honed his craft of riffing with speed, power and control. He later formed his own power trio, the Eric Tessmer Band, in 2003. Through a battered '59 Fender Stratocaster producing vintage-correct tones, Eric kickstarts the engine left idling by guitar players of the past. 
 
Known as one of the hardest working musicians in the area, Tessmer continues to travel the U.S., Canada and Europe. Creating his own brand of ‘blues-rock soul-chedelic’ sound, he has electrified festivals such as Montreal Jazz Fest, Summerfest, and MusikFest with dialed-in precision and delivered polished performances at clubs, pubs and venues across the land. Sharing the stage with notable musicians such as Dick Dale, Anders Osborne, Tab Benoit, Monte Montgomery, Gary Clark Jr. and Chris Duarte; Tessmer has created a buzz among the blues-rock community that is quickly swarming with devoted disciples.

**MAAYAN**

MAAYAN (full name: Maayan Oppenheim) was born in San Francisco to an American-Israeli couple and spent most of her teenage years in Tel Aviv. Her musical journey started out in an underground punk/grunge band she formed during high school. She went on to record, program and produce her own Hip Hop and R&B music and collaborated with high-profile Israeli Hip-Hop DJ & Producer Ori Shochat, releasing her first single “Turn The Music Up”(2008). MAAYAN then relocated to Brooklyn to promote her release and immerse herself in the NYC music scene. After collaborating with a variety of producers and musicians between 2009 and 2010, producing over two albums worth of material, Maayan went on to study electronic music production and sound design at Dubspot New York, and further developed her productions and soundscapes into 2012. In early 2013 she founded Oppenheim Music Inc. and released Indie/EDM EP In Too Deep. Later in 2014, she followed up with full-length Rock/World/Blues album Science Fiction, produced by Israeli producer Ofer Ekerling. The album features acclaimed musicians Yossi Fine and Yaron Gershvosky.
 
In 2015 with a new set of songs MAAYAN began performing all over Brooklyn and Manhattan with her acoustic guitar only, including the streets and subway platforms of New York. Perfecting the art of busking opened up many doors. After banding up with fellow buskers and traveling to Austin, TX for SXSW 2016, inspired by the festival, Maayan began producing her own weekly showcases under the name Folkers On The Rock: " WeFolk Mondays" & "Indie Focus Wednesdays" in New York's Lower East Side. The nights quickly became go-to places for the underground Indie Folk scene. In summer 2016, Maayan and singer-songwriter Tylor Elder went on a cross-country tour.
