Meet our awesome acts!

Green Balance CBD cropped-Fresh-Hops-1 HEMP FEST 2021

Fresh Hops

Fresh Hops is a touring 5 piece Multi-Genre bending, Rock band from Northwest Indiana. The band formed in March 2008 as a musical improvisational outlet among friends. Now Fresh Hops has evolved into a captivating, high energy live act.
The group has seen numerous line ups and instrument inclusion which has led to an eclectic mix of sounds and atmospheres. As writers and performers Fresh Hops constantly blurs the lines between genres and style, often during the course of a single song.
That “anything goes” attitude has translated to a stage show that remains fresh and fun from show to show. In other words, the realization that jazz, classic soul, bluegrass, classical, metal and progressive jam rock can all shake hands and play nice has guided them to create remarkable tunes from an ever-expanding palette. We are so happy that they are headlining Green Balance Hemp Fest 2021!

Thomas Nicholas Band

You know Thomas from “Rookie of the Year” and the American Pie series! Over the last ten years, Thomas Nicholas Band has played over 700 concerts around the world from huge festivals to solo acoustic shows in intimate clubs and private charity fundraisers. Thomas Nicholas is a hybrid of Dave Grohl meets Bruce Springsteen and his live performance is so much fun to watch that people always come back to see another one.

“…I love playing concerts. The personal connection of live music is irreplaceable.”

Musically, Thom draws on a solid crop of influences that have helped him learn the art of writing a pop song while keeping a foot in rock and roll. “We’ve released 6 albums, the most recent is the perfect cross over of my two careers and we were lucky enough to record it at FooFighter’s Studio 606.”
Thank you Thomas for travelling across country to be a part of Indiana’s first Hemp Fest!
