In World War II my grandfather, Stuart J. Ruch, was a bombardier in a B-24 Liberator. He was stationed in the Pacific and his plane was once so badly damaged during a mission that the Japanese reported it shot down. He lived through the war and became a successful podiatrist. After he retired from podiatry he became a prolific painter and sculptor. Bombsight is named in his honor.

Bombsight is a fully functioning, Pro Tools based recording studio located in downtown Bloomington, IL. I have some great gear and a couple of well-tuned rooms. I don’t have a lounge or any cool amenities, and the bathroom is pretty gnarly, but this place is my temple. Please take a look around the gallery to get a sense of the space and check out samples of work I’ve done at the studio if you’re interested.
The Blank Sleeves
The Blank Sleeves
We are a 3 piece band that plays a cultivation of rock, alternative, punk, blues, and grunge music. Whats a movement without a message?
The Golden Fleece
The Golden Fleece
The show will also be the debut of a new Ryan Simpson project, THE GOLDEN FLEECE, Ryan's newest off-shoot from 'Heavy Shake', a Peoria favorite. Ryan is a multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist, singer/songwriter, and whatever he has up his sleeve is going to be exciting. thegoldenfleece.bandcamp.com

The Most of Me
The Most of Me
The Most Of Me is a 6-piece metalcore band based in Rockford, Illinois dedicated to impacting the world with positive, relevant, and real world topics through music that is both relatable and enlightening. It's inception was the brainchild of Justin Hieser (former The Color Morale) who left the idea to Morgan Earp. After cycling through members for various reasons they have finally arrived upon a line-up they are happy with and proud to present.
The Most Of Me is comprised of individuals that believe the world can and should be better, and convey that in their lyrics and music. Pulling from a variety of influences and many inspirations, from believing in yourself to the worlds political climate, they have completed songs that they both believe in and love playing and truly believe that you, the listener, will enjoy. Their first LP, entitled "The Human Problem" is everything they and countless others wish to say. This is their voice, their medium for communicating ideas, and they have every intention on using it.
Long Ladder Home
Long Ladder Home
Music is what feelings sound like, traveling between spiritual and physical, light and dark. That's what Long Ladder Home is all about, the journey.
Black Esther
Black Esther
After toiling away for years, Black Esther finally got serious in 2012 and released a 5-track EP titled "Television."
Bakerfield
Bakerfield
Band was formed in 2016 when John and Tyler met at Illinois State University. Quickly gained a chemistry and knew that they needed to grow the group. With the help of online postings we were able to find Evan who also went to Illinois State University. Quickly started to get to know each other and got right to work in the down town Bloomington, IL bar scene and house parties at ISU. After experimenting with some players we came across Matt and were blown away by his talent and theory ability. Matt was quickly added as a core member and love his energy. Looking to gig all we can and are currently working on our own original music.
