Start Making Sense- A Tribute to Talking Heads
Start Making Sense are selling out rooms throughout the eastern half of the United States. This band is a huge hit as the Talking Heads are never on tour, and the band's amazing dedication to the music and fun loving attitude has proven to be a favorite at clubs and festivals.

If David Byrne is one of the geniuses of modern times, then Start Making Sense is a tribute to genius. The musicians in this 7-piece Talking Heads Tribute take pride in faithfully recreating the music of Talking Heads entire career, including songs Talking Heads never performed live! Together they bring much of the Heads unique live show to the stage, with front man Jon Braun as a spot-on David Byrne, some have said this is the closest thing you'll get to seeing Talking Heads again.
For those with eclectic music tastes to those who can’t taste anything, there is Qiet. Unclassifiable as a musical act, Qiet defies the bounds of traditional music, taking from every culture on the planet and orchestrating the sound, feel and spirit into a high-energy pop package. It is as fun is it is unique with its blend of rock, jazz, gypsy, funk and beyond. Notorious for moving even the most stoic to dance, Qiet’s chemistry resonates with the audience to create an experience for you to remember as well as a whole new perspective on music performance.

Christopher Vincent - Lead vocal & Guitar
Tracy Lipscomb- Violin 

Max Venoy- Trumpet
Jared Laymen- Trombone & Accordion
James Maddox- Bass

"[Qiet] slams together everything from gypsy jazz to indie pop to wild rock to soul and funk." —KDHX

"[Pet Driftwood] might sound like an indie hipster title torn [from] the Arcade Fire playbook, and it is, but the album promises to be infinitely more adventurous." —PopDose

"Aptly titled ‘The Indie Song’, the album track evokes the vaudevillian atmosphere of fellow genre darlings Gogol Bordello and Edward Sharpe And The Magnetic Zeroes." —Magnet Magazine

“ is music with a vision and a purpose – music to dance to (should the mood take you), but equally it is intelligent, literary music that you can listen to (should the mood take you).” —The Mad Mackerel

“Quite simply, Qiet defies definition.” —Mandy Southgate, Blogcritics
