The Cuz Band is a high energy Blues and R&B band resonating through the MS Delta. No stranger to the music industry, most of the band members have been performing for many years. After getting their start in late July of 2012, The CUZ Band has performed at various venues throughout the MS Delta and other cities.

Playing covers of Blues and R&B artist such as Bobby Bland, Michael Jackson, Marvin Sease, Prince, Al Green, James Brown, Darius Rucker, Isley Brothers and Bruno Mars, The CUZ Band focus is making a riveting impact on the music scene through performing a wide range of everyone’s favorite soul classic and foot stooping covers.

The band consists of Arnishia King of Memphis, TN (Lead Vocals), Keith Johnson of Greenville, MS (Lead Vocals), Charles Ross of Greenville, MS (Keyboards), Ramirez Lee of Leland, MS (Drums), Travis Calvin of Clarksdale, MS (Guitar) and Chris Parks of Cleveland, MS (Founder and Bassist). As a band, The CUZ Band has one ultimate and common goal: TO PLEASE THE PEOPLE while having FUN!

Blue Elephant Club was formed through friendships made through the Delta Music Institute at Delta State University. Known for playing anything from Classic Rock to 90's Pop, the Blue Elephant Club will positively get you up on your feet! Each band member may call Mississippi their home state, but they each share their own love for music, which enables them to share that love with each and every crowd while also having a little fun on stage!  

The band consists of Mary Claire Rackley (Keyboard/Vocals) & Libby Switzer (Vocals) both from Gulfport, MS, Nathaniel Hensley (Bass Guitar) from Olive Branch, MS, Nick Altman (Lead Guitar) from Richland, MS, Will Garrett (Drums/Vocals) from Meridian, MS, and Evan Lindsey (Guitar/Vocals) from Greenwood, MS.
