About the Band

Founded in 2015, Smashtag is a modern pop rock cover band based out of Jacksonville and Springfield. Our mission is simple - to create a fun, energetic atmosphere that keeps the audience engaged from beginning to end. Our unique set list, production, and stage presence resonated with venues and crowds alike! We look forward to building on our success.

Smashtag is:

Dane Vincent - Lead Vocals
Dane has been singing through the Springfield music scene for quite some time. He was a member of Full Tilt for 10+ years and also sang for Pop Quiz Hotshot. Frequently, he can be found sharing his voice at various open mic nights.

Matt Rigor - Bass Guitar
Matt has been playing bass for several years, now. Before founding Smashtag, Matt was the bassist for the band Pattern Grey. Regardless of musical style, Matt’s favorite part about music is when he connects with the emotion of a song.

Randy Anderson - Guitar
Randy has a very diverse musical experience. In college, he spent his days as the guitarist for Peapod Junior (ska), and recently was the drummer for Springfield indie rockers, The Complaint Line.

Samuel Smith - Drums
Samuel has explored the roots of pop, punk, metal, funk and R&B - all of which have helped to cultivate a unique drumming experience that fits in perfectly with the energy and musicality of Smashtag!

Jayson Craig - Keyboards
Jayson has been a friend of Samuel since childhood. He frequented Smashag shows enough, that when we needed to find a keyboard player, he was already there. It seemed like a natural fit!

Stuart Smith - Guitar
Stuart has been a regular on the music scene around Springfield and Jacksonville. He can also be seen playing his original music at various venues around. Stuart filled in for us in July, so it made sense for us to welcome him full time.
