The Reed Brothers


Alan Sibley
Mississippi native, Alan Sibley began his career in music playing mandolin with the Legendary First Family of Bluegrass Gospel “The Sullivan Family” in 2001 at the age of fifteen. During the first four years of his musical career Sibley toured almost continuously and played Bluegrass Gospel music in thirty states. After leaving “The Sullivan Family” Sibley worked with two of the Deep South’s more prominent bluegrass bands, “The Larry Wallace Band” and “Jerry & Tammy Sullivan”. After seven years of being a sideman in other groups Sibley decided to form his own band. With musical roots deep in Bluegrass and Gospel music, Alan Sibley & The Magnolia Ramblers have performed across the United States since 2008.




Shank & Maim

Shank & Maim is a two man grunge blues band created in 2017 by brothers-in-law Mark Threet and Louisville native Caleb Childs. Inspired by the driving grunge sound produced by former Starkville duo The Waco Dead (who are rumored to be Shank & Maim from the future), Shank & Maim formed from members of Starkville band Sipsy Fires. The brothers stand out from the crowd with their technique of playing up to 7 instruments on stage simultaneously, creating a whirlwind of spirit and sound which conjures a feeling that one fan could only describe as "being lost in the woods behind a juke joint." Along with their original music, Shank & Maim create a unique listening experience using an approach known as "Shanking & Maiming," which blends melodies, rhythms, and vocals from multiple songs by other artists into one, allowing for a seamless transition between many different genres and musical styles while maintaining a cohesive and balanced sound that is accessible and relatable to listeners.
