Sean K. Preston

Sean K. Preston & The Loaded Pistols is a nationally touring band from Baltimore, MD. Recently signed to Rusty Knuckles, their new album “Forgive” is due for release in October 2018. Currently, the group is touring the country to share their raucous honkytonk, dirty blues, roadhouse rock ‘n’ roll, and tear jerking country balladry.

The music of Sean K. Preston draws heavily on the influences of the classic heartbroken sounds of Country & Western music from the 40’s through the 70’s, the honesty of the Blues by the likes of Robert Johnson and John Lee Hooker, the bombast of 50’s Rock’n’Roll, the lyrical sophistication of musical poets like Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan and Nick Cave, the raw energy of Punk, and the spirituality of Mountain Gospel. His own songs range from delicate laments and lullabies to fiery sermons and confessions.



.KATANGA!, the band, are four experienced musicians based out of the DMV area of the east coast of the United States. Their live performances are nothing short of AMAZING, as they bring top level energy, musicianship, and a distinguishable big sound to well known hard rock covers & originals.


Donny Wood

Raised on the farm in a small town called Ijamsville, located in northern Maryland, my granddad taught me some old country banjo picking and my grandmother had me in the local church choir singing at an early age.

In November of 2015, I released my newest album, ‘Country 10”, produced by Oaktree Productions. 10 songs mostly from CMA Songwriter of the Year, Jimmy Yeary and a group of extremely talented song writers. I am a co-writer with Brannon Sims on the song, “Georgia Marble. I also recorded a remake of Ronnie Milsap’s classic hit, “Stranger in My House” on this album with Tre’ Corley producing and arranging. I have released several more videos from this album: “Say A Prayer”, “Easy”, and “We Do”, produced, engineered and choreographed by Paul Corley, Tre’ Corley, Andy Corley and Frankie Chew.
