Hometown: Baltimore

Current members: John Williams, bass; Jon Maurer, piano and vocals; Rob Selznick, guitar and vocals; Todd Boyle, drums

Founded in: 2000

Style: piano-heavy rock 'n' roll

Influenced by: Frank Sinatra, Pantera, Blind Melon, Dave Matthews, Frank Zappa

Notable: Kustom Blend booked three of the five shows scheduled after Ravens games in the Backyard Bash Tent this year. The band has played there for the past couple of years and relishes the large post-game audience, Williams said.

Quotable: "Usually to get that kind of reach and frequency you have to go out to so many places around the state," Williams said. "A gig like that, they all come to you."
