The Rugged are from Jackson, Maine. Members Cody Tibbetts, Tim Valliere and Travis Lloyd have been friends since elementary school. All three have been active in the Maine music scene over the years. In January of 2011 they found themselves living on the same road, just a couple miles apart from one another. They decided it was time to give it a go. The Rugged’s first album, (recorded by local engineer Edward Goguen), blends swamp rock rhythm with atmospheric guitar and introspective lyrics. Album is available now!

The 4LO Band is from the neighboring towns of Northport, Lincolnville and Hope. Members Eric Robitaille, Art Grinnell, Mike Spencer and Sam Grinnell are a newly formed group bringing high energy to current covers and classics. This band puts together a wide variety of rock greats. The band plans to keep working hard and stay committed in being a premiere Mid-Coast Band. “Each of us are overflowing with a passion for the music and what we do, rocking the house.” 4 Lo members talked about the upcoming HSKC event, “We are thrilled to be playing this event with The Rugged and look forward to supporting local shelter work.
