The Hook Knives (Ran Cummings, Mike Henderson, Alisha Schroeder, Jessica Balisle) were on Studio Live with their unique blend of original tunes. The band then played Studio Live Social Hour at the Backlot. 

The Shandies, Shannon Stine and Natalie Wlodarczyk, were in the studio with Randy and Jess to discuss songwriting, musical backgrounds and current projects. Their debut album "Begin Again" was released in June 2017 and the duo performed several songs from the album, as well as new ones that have yet to be recorded.
