Casey Cleveland is a singer-songwriter who is equally at home with a guitar in hand or sitting behind a drum kit. As a child he developed a deep love for music and was strongly influenced by The Beatles, POCO, CSNY, The Band, and even a little AC/ DC, Deep Purple, Stones, Alice Cooper and so many more. His drumming has influenced his approach to songwriting, creating music that is rhythmic and percussive by nature.  With many creative stops along the way, music has always been my “soul food “.  One of my recent projects was with guitarist Phil Badell known as “The Jukebox Underdogs". A grass roots acoustic show that blended country blues and rock and provided a platform to perform my original material. Most recently performing acoustic solo shows in and around the Frederick music scene, session drummer for local performers such as Ken Demith and Brushfire.
Dave Ott, brother to Sam, has been involved in a variety of musical endeavors through involvement with church, school, and many other social organizations. Dave and Sam perform in a band right after high school playing at local venues.  Dave performs as a bass guitarist and vocalist.   Most recently performing with Brushfire.
