Having been on a roller coaster that took Quietdrive charging up the Top 40 radio charts to their first independent release, the humble boys from Minneapolis, Minnesota have stood unwavering with their message: Get. Our Fans. Music. Starting off finding success in the pop/punk world, Quietdrive has longed to be appreciated for what they truly are: a timeless rock band. After releasing their most recent self-titled album December 14th, the band has been touring the Midwest after coming off of their 2nd tour for troops in Iraq/Afghanistan this winter.

Cedar Avenue is an up-and-coming pop/rock band from Minnesota. Their song "7 Years" off their debut CD, Someday Soon, was recently featured on ABC in the season finale of *Grey's Anatomy*'s sister show, *Rookie Blue*. That same song can be found on the Cities 97 Sampler. Veteran Twin Cities music columnist Chris Riemenschneider said this about the band's debut CD: "Cedar Avenue, a Fray- and One Republic-like, piano-laced quartet...sounds primed for radio play, with the dramatic, gorgeously sung title track ['Someday Soon'] and the stormy rocker 'Up North.'" Cedar Avenue has been helping pack venues throughout the Midwest, opening for huge sold-out crowds with acts such as Augustana, A Fine Frenzy, Hanson, and Graham Colton.
