Humans In Disguise (HiD) is an Alternative Rock band based out of beautiful Ocala, FL. Founded in 2014 by percussionist Elliot Eisler and singer Jared Quidley, they vaulted onto the local music scene! Over the course of the next two years they began to build a dynamic 5 piece band around their original EP released in 2016. HiD added multi-talented Bassist Mike Koller, Guitarist Dustin King, and on the drums Justin Morin. As a five piece band Humans In Disguise has covered most of Florida and into Georgia, performing at multiple venues, festivals, and private parties to a variety of crowds. You’ll notice their unique sound and energy in every song they do. From their own material, to covering the greats over the last 50 years, they are true crowd pleasers. Most of all, they love writing and playing music together!

Mean of Man

Mean of Man is an epic, 3-piece rock band from Clearwater, FL. Our original sound draws inspiration from grunge, alt rock and classic rock, all while maintaining a soulful and bluesy tone to the passionate lyrics that singer & guitarist, Chris Henson, brings to the forefront of the music. Seth York is on percussion and shows off his extraordinary talents often. Ryan Whigham uses his bass guitar with expert precision while maintaining the driving tempo that Mean of Man thrives on!



OakLee was originally formed in 2017 by Ian Davis, Brandon Marshall, William Williams, Grant Shelnut and Christian Zonner. As a band we started out practicing song covers and writing originals. We quickly clicked as musicians and started playing local shows. As a band we have played hundreds of shows. We are continuing to quickly expand with our music, playing anything from old classic Johnny Cash and Hank Williams to anything nowadays on the radio. We even throw a taste of Rock ‘N’ Roll with anything from Tom Petty to Pearl Jam. We are growing everyday as a band and also as individuals in the industry. We have opened for acts such as Love and Theft, Frank Foster, Brandon Lay, Parmalee, Drake white and many more on our journey. Our Dream is to share our music and make sure the people are enjoying it and themselves at our shows. Music is a part of Life with us #OakLee
