Gert Arwood & the Centennials is an eight-piece contemporary blues
collective based out of Nashville, Tennessee. While there have been many musicians who contribute live and/or in-studio to the Centennials’ sound, the core group consists of bassist/vocalist Garrett “Gert” Arwood, guitarists Jackson Anderson and Lucas Rennie, vocalist Christiana Alaire, drummer Patrick Prophet, keyboardists Adam Story and Alex J. Price, and saxophonist Jack Warren. Garrett formed the group in early 2022 as a means to showcase his original music and shine a spotlight on the amazing musicians that contribute to the band’s sound. The group’s style exists somewhere between the realms of blues, funk, and old R&B/soul, but the Centennials pride themselves on being a band that can fit the mold of nearly any style or genre. Some key inspirations include Bill Withers, Sly & the Family Stone, Allen Stone, Rufus & Chaka Khan, and Stevie Ray Vaughan. The band is set to release their self-titled debut EP on May 26th, 2023.
Ryan Kohn is a singer / songwriter based out of Nashville, Tennessee. He will be joined by friends Lucas Rennie, Isaac Mauldin, and Cole Pomeroy to to showcase his sound, drawing from influences all across the board. The Beatles, John Mayer, Bon Iver, Phoebe Bridgers, Jason Isbell, Pinegrove, and many more combined with his love for pop music and storytelling has helped shape his sensibilities as a songwriter and artist.
