Over the last three years, EXPOSED Festival along with Stand and Deliver Records has produced WinTour which has featured, debuted, and unified local acts in cities coast to coast. This festival-style tour has exposed more than 1000 unsigned bands through 100 shows to more than 30,000 fans across the country in just 3 tours!

Jennifer “JennCity” Arroyo is a sassy Puerto Rican New Yorker (via Washington, D.C) Vocalist/Bassist/DJ/Host/Writer that started touring when she was 14 years old and has been touring the world since. Her former bands include, Open Defiance, SPiNE, Suicide City and most notably, platinum selling all female metal band – Kittie.


Ms. Arroyo is the current Vocalist/Bassist for “JENNCiTY” as well as the Brooklyn based Death Metal / Rock n Roll band, DeMilitia. She also works with various musicians on different collaborations in the studio and her bass and voice can be heard on many albums. She is also the proud Host of the “Exposed Music Festival” which travels around the country looking to help expose some of the best up and coming Metal and Hard Rock Artists in the country.

Jennifer was the first female to be fully endorsed by Warwick Basses (including Amps) and also works with Morley Bass Wah Pedals & Dean Markley. Arroyo runs her own production company, Jenncity Productions in New York City and was featured in the May 2007 issue of Revolver Magazine with her brand of high energy metal n roll she spins.

She recently stared as a houseguest on the hit reality show Big Brother Season 14. She finished in the final 5 out of 16 houseguest.

Ionia is a dynamic melodic rock band hailing from New York City comprised of five socially and economically conscious musicians who are dedicated to their craft and determined to bring their sound to the masses. With powerful songs like The Woodsman and Captain Humility ionia has been gaining national attention and a burgeoning fan base.

Saint Diablo: Touring is the band’s lifeblood, and being known as “tour dogs” is what this band is all about. Sharing their life’s work with a devoted fan base that stretches all over the country, they think of their fans as friends and family. The band has logged as many as 200 shows in a single year, and has supported (or toured with) bands such as Slayer, Drowning Pool, Chimaira, Hatebreed, Devil Driver, Soulfly, Fear Factory, Mushroomhead, GWAR, Flaw, Busta Rhymes, and many others. “Tour, I love being on tour! That’s our life blood,” adds guitarist Justin Adams. “Being on stage and performing for our fans is the grass roots of what we do. The energy, the smell, the taste of being in a packed room with a bunch of metal crazed fans, who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?! The interaction of the fans and meeting new people and hearing their stories all over the country… that’s what I look forward to on tour. It’s about the brotherhood of living in a van with your band mates and the experiences, things you have to overcome.”

Cry With Us! Puddles Pity Party in Orlando

Ange Alex

I owe him a poem:

Here’s a story of a sad clown who one night in February was traveling through O-town. 

He brought a suitcase and a lot of gum, he brought music and videos and tons of fun.

He sang high but mostly he sang low, and he put of one hell of a good show.

He gave a bearded guy a cupcake and danced with a lady, a wolf he would make

There is no doubt he is a boss sir, he even got love from Kevin Costner.

Fans filled the plaza for a night of delight as the 7 foot clown gave us some real insight.

He sang Bowie and Queen and even some Who, also Cash, Lorde and “Let it go” too

Videos played of pets and babies crying, also beautiful artwork and people smiling.

Last night Orlando was anything but mad as we showed much love for a clown that is sad.

Ok, I’d cry too after that poem. Here’s some more info:

If you haven’t been to see a Puddles Pity Party show, you are missing out. 

The show had me smiling and laughing so hard my stomach hurt, but I was also moved so many times by the range of Puddles voice. True entertainment never gets old and I have a feeling he is going to last forever.

I loved the interaction he had with the crowd. He pulled numerous people up to help him on stage and all of them were good sports, one man even singing the entire song, “All by myself” karaoke style! The show was so well thought out and planned but with room for some hilarious improv. Especially at the end when he pulled the 3 fans from the audience dressed like clowns. At the end of them performing together, Puddles suddenly remembers that he is scared of clowns! Genius! 

Hands down one of the best performances I’ve seen in years.

We caught up with Big Mike to ask a few questions.

TBB: Big Mike! It’s been a couple years since we had the pleasure of seeing you perform live. We are so excited to be back in Atlanta and we are ready for this show. What can you tell us about this years event?

Big Mike: Welcome back to Atlanta, Ange! We’re also excited to be in town for another wild and wonderful Holiday Jubilee. We like to honor the tradition that the Jubilee has become and don’t mess too much with the format. You can expect the always magnificent sounds of the 12-piece Kingsized Rock ‘n Roll orchestra performing your favorite holiday classics and the dazzling Dames Aflame dancers providing the glamour. The show is all about holiday nostalgia, whatever that means to you: Bing Crosby, Andy Williams, Donnie Hathaway, The Grinch, Rankin Bass, Peanuts, the Dreidel Song? It’s all in there.
