Midnight Shinigami


Formed in 2010 to compete in a Battle of the Bands competition, this group of musicians combined their passion for music and anime, giving creative birth to “Midnight Shinigami”. They have been traveling to local conventions to share their favorite anime songs to the masses and have released their first album, “Kioku//Memories” in December 2017. Midnight Shinigami’s members are just as diverse as their musical influences and playing styles. From soft ballads to hard-driving metal, they’re sure to have something in their repertoire that’ll make anyone drop dead in pure aural bliss.

More info on The Staylyns:
The Staylyns are a high-energy Rock & Roll band based in Austin Texas that draws on influences from Jack White, KT Tunstall & Dave Grohl to create a signature sound and strong stage show.
The Staylyns began as a duo in April 2008, performing in Austin’s famous Sixth Street district, but in March 2010, the band settled into its current lineup as a three-piece band with guitarist Johnny Austin, bassist Suzy Staton, and drummer Joey Kraft. All three members of the band share lead singing duties on a classic list of hits and original songs that span five decades, from the 1950’s through current releases.
The Staylyns have played premier gigs throughout the state of Texas, performing at both public venues and private events, rocking audiences with one of the most energetic and engaging shows around
