Wishbone Ash

Formed in 1969, Wishbone Ash has more than 20 original studio recordings and several live albums to their credit. The group has appeared at all the major music festivals and enjoys a history with some of the world’s classic music labels, Universal and Atlantic Records.

Back in the day, Wishbone Ash cut their teeth on the US stadium circuit first opening for The Who. Once they began headlining in the States, Wishbone’s opening acts included Springsteen, Kiss and Aerosmith.

Citing Wishbone Ash as an influence on their style, Thin Lizzy, Iron Maiden, Southern Rock outfits like Lynyrd Skynyrd and, more recently, heavyweights like Opeth and some of the guitar-based Indie/ Alternative bands, have all taken a little something from the legendary twin-guitar approach of Wishbone Ash. Truly, there is no other rock band on the planet that has done more with the twin guitar concept than the Ash.

Queen Nation

There is little doubt among the pure rock community that the legendary band Queen and lead performer Freddie Mercury earn high ranks as one of the most powerful and iconic groups in rock history. Upon his death in 1991, a huge void was left in the rock concert world, which to this day has not yet been matched.

Queen Nation, a tribute to Queen, was formed in 2004 by David Hewitt / DMHE Music Agency. Queen Nation consists of: Gregory Finsley on vocals & keyboards as Freddie Mercury, Mike McManus on guitar as Brian May, Pete Burke on drums as Roger Taylor, and Parker Combs on bass as John Deacon. The mission of the show is to carry on the musical torch and pay homage to the golden age of vintage Queen concerts. In 2013 Queen Nation was recognized as The World’s Greatest Queen Tribute by Mark Cuban, Ryan Seacrest and their cutting edge network AXS TV. Queen Nation was given a 1hr LIVE national broadcast from the Roxy in Hollywood, to 40 million viewers. A coinciding compilation album was released by AXS TV featuring two tracks recorded by Queen Nation. Most recently, Queen Nation was selected by The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim baseball team to perform on the infield of Angel Stadium as part of their Flashback Weekend.

Queen Nation’s live 100-minute production of Queen’s greatest hits preserves the image, sound, and stage persona of vintage Queen. Audiences are amazed at the accuracy of Queen Nation’s live retrospective journey through such Queen songs as We Will Rock You – We Are The Champions – Bohemian Rhapsody – Crazy Little Thing Called Love – You’re My Best Friend – Another One Bites The Dust – Under Pressure and many more. They have performed in front of thousands of people at casinos, fairs, sports arenas and private affairs.

Lovedrive – Tribute to the Scorpions

Lovedrive is dubbed the “Best of the Best in the West” by James Kottak of the Scorpions.

Lovedrive was formed in 2012 based out of Southern California using the name from the Scorpions’ pinnacle album of 1979. Lovedrive proudly pays tribute to the biggest World-known band in the history of hard rock. The band captures the look, the sound and energy of a live Scorpions concert.

The band was joined on stage by the Scorpions’ very own James Kottak at the Whisky A-Go-Go in W. Hollywood, CA playing three songs “No One Like You”, “Big City Nights” and “Coming Home” to an energetic crowd of excited fans.

Some have described the Scorpions as “the Heroes of Heavy Metal” and called them “Ambassadors of Rock”. In 2015 the Scorpions celebrated their 50th anniversary, thus producing hundreds of radio hits and arena favorites which haven’t been played live in many years.

On that note, Lovedrive makes certain that the best hits and rare gems are included at each show. From the songs of the late 70’s like “In Trance” to “Lovedrive” and all the 80’s hits like “Rock You Like a Hurricane”, “The Zoo”, “Blackout”, “No One Like You” and “Still Loving You”. and 90’s hits like “Wind of Change” and “Send Me an Angel”. Not to mention more current hits of the 2000’s like “321” and “Rock and Roll Band”.

Witness for yourselves how Lovedrive Tribute to the Scorpions is the closest thing to visiting Hannover, Germany here in the U.S.A.



Sunday, March 8  ·  Jason Boland & The Stragglers

Jason Boland & The Stragglers

Music is having a moment. Listeners are crying out for something true––some meaty songs that’ll give us some comfort, even as they cut closer to the bone.

Everyone is finally ready for the gritty, thundering country Jason Boland and the Stragglers have sharpened over almost 20+ years’ worth of selling out roomy venues and commanding stages across the nation.

“We’re just trying to make something that we’re proud of,” lead songwriter and vocalist Boland says. “If any more people want to take notice of it, they’re welcome.”

Since coming together in Stillwater, Oklahoma, Boland and his tight knit crew have sold more than half a million albums independently and earned a devoted following that’s swelled far beyond the band’s red dirt roots. At a Stragglers show, oil patch roughnecks, hippies, college kids, and intelligentsia all sway side-by-side like a traveling reincarnation of Austin’s Armadillo World Headquarters in its cosmic cowboy, Willie Nelson heyday.

While the Stragglers draw from rock and folk, make no mistake: they traffic in unfiltered, unfettered honky-tonk, raw and lean.

For 2020, the band is celebrating the 20th Anniversary of their debut album Pearl Snaps with a nationwide tour where the band will play the record front to back along with favorites from their extensive catalog. The legendary record was recorded with famed producer Lloyd Maines and behind the success of songs like “Pearl Snaps” “Somewhere Down in Texas” “Proud Souls” and others it quickly became a beloved classic and still continues to be named as a major influence for many of the top artists coming out of the Texas/Oklahoma country music scene.

Jessie Daniel

Jesse grew up in Ben Lomond, California. A small town located in an area called the San Lorenzo Valley, tucked away in the mountains east of Santa Cruz. It’s been said that there is “something in the water” of the San Lorenzo River, due to the musical talent that has come out of the surrounding area. Having cut his teeth playing in the local clubs and bars from a young age, as well as touring with regional acts, he found his love for the stage early on. Through this he also found his love for substances and as times got harder, they did too.

Jesse’s teens and early twenties would find him in and out of jail and rehabilitation centers. It was also there that his love for music and desire to perform was reignited. One day while in a facility in Oakland, California, he heard someone playing a Hank Williams tune in the other room. “I had just enough in me to sit in a chair and listen.” Daniel said. “I told him I wanted to play like him and he said, ‘Why don’t you?’”. The singer made a promise to himself that day.

Fast forward to present day, JD seems to have made good on that promise. Having dedicated his life to music, he’s gained fans nationally and internationally, as well as the respect of his peers. Whether on tour as support for major artists, or selling out clubs on his own, he’s only picking up speed on an upward trajectory. With the success of his self-titled debut and a sophomore album coming early 2020, Jesse Daniel is solidifying himself brick by brick as a name you won’t forget in country music.

Berlin

“New music is the lifeblood of anybody making music— it’s that creation, excitement, new babies [songs]! It inspires me and it inspires others,” declares Terri Nunn, the charismatic and enigmatic singer of L.A.’s iconic synth electro-pop pioneers, BERLIN.

BERLIN will forever be recognized as the American progenitor of electro-pop artistry with sensually appealing lyrics. Few bands emerging from the era of BERLIN have achieved as far-reaching and long-lasting an impact and, rarely, such a timeless array of musical grooves. The Los Angeles-based band made its first national impression with the provocative single “Sex (I’m A…)” from the platinum-selling debut EP Pleasure Victim in 1982. “The Metro” and “No More Words” were also chart toppers, but it was the unforgettable, intimate, and strikingly beautiful love song, “Take My Breath Away” that took the band to another level. The ballad’s defining role in the Tom Cruise film, Top Gun, helped solidify BERLIN’s everlasting place in American pop-culture. The song was a #1 international hit and received both the Golden Globe and Academy Award for “Best Original Song” in 1986.

Currently, Nunn is recording a brand new BERLIN studio album with her original BERLIN band members and co-writers, John Crawford (bass) and David Diamond (keyboards).  The album is scheduled for release in mid 2019. The album is being produced by Australian producers Andy and Thom Mak. The album marks the first collaboration by Nunn, Crawford and Diamond since Love Life, the third BERLIN album, released in 1984.

Last In Line – The original Dio band

Last In Line was formed in 2011, when Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain, and Vivian Campbell, (Ronnie James Dio’s co-conspirators and co-writers on the “Holy Diver”, “Last In Line” – the album from which they took their name, and “Sacred Heart” albums) teamed up with esteemed vocalist Andrew Freeman. The debut album “Heavy Crown” was released in February 2016, landing at #1 on the Billboard Heat-Seekers Chart. Initially, the release had been preceded by tragedy when bassist Jimmy Bain unexpectedly passed away at the age of 68 on January 23, 2016.  Last In Line, honoring what they knew would be Bain’s wish to keep the band moving, brought in renowned bassist Phil Soussan (ex-Ozzy Osbourne) and committed to sustained touring in support of the album, hitting festivals, headlining clubs, and sharing the stage with metal luminaries such as Saxon and Megadeth.

In late 2017, the band gathered in L.A. to start the recording of the second album, which was produced by the band members and Jeff Pilson (Foreigner, The End: machine, ex-Dokken), who also produced the debut album. Having really gelled as a band while touring in support of the debut album, the songwriting came readily to the members. They’ve created a record that shows a big progression in sound, while immediately being recognizable as Last In Line thanks to Vinny Appice’s rhythms, thunderous bass from Soussan, amazing vocals from Andrew Freeman, and the roaring guitars of Vivian Campbell.

“The musical style of ‘II’ is different from ‘Heavy Crown’, but it wasn’t something that we planned to do,” explains Vivian Campbell. “Phil is a more intricate player than Jimmy was and that, together with the natural growth and development of the band led us to the songs on the album. As always, we simply started to jam on ideas and see where they led us. But it’s fair to say that the songs on this album sound more developed, with more parts and more experimentation than the songs on ‘Heavy Crown’. The first album set a tone, but on ‘II’ we developed that idea and took it to the next logical stage.”

Drummer Vinny Appice, on the sound of the new record and song writing process, says “I always sound like me. Viv and I have been playing together for years and have the same feel and pulse and attitude. Now with Phil on bass, he allows a more melodic approach on the bass parts making the songs even more interesting. He fits in perfectly being from the same musical family and time as me and Viv. Mr. Freeman sings from his soul and completes the band’s sound with his melodies and amazing range.”

Sledd

Sledd is a five piece, hard hitting, Heavy-Alternative, Album Orientated Rock, Musical Group from San Diego, CA. The Band was founded by Lead Vocalist/Frontman Cary Rothman, Keyboardist/Vocalist Peter DeLuke Jr and Brother/Drummer Dino DeLuke in March of 1995.

Sledd has played with, opened for, or toured with such legendary Hard Rock Musical Groups as: Tesla, Great White, The Bullet Boys, Gilby Clarke, Blue Oyster Cult, Dokken, Quiet Riot, Queensryche, Ratt, LA Guns, UFO, Skid Row, Cinderella and Y&T.

Their latest and third Album “Insane Laughter” has received National Airplay in several United States Cities. In April/May 2009, Sledd members along with Executive Producer and Tesla Bassist Brian Wheat recorded a four song EP at “J” Street Studios in Sacramento, CA. All four cuts later appeared on the self produced Sledd CD “Insane Laughter”. Sledd’s second Album ”Crooked Smiles” was produced by Great White Guitarist Mark Kendall. Kendall also managed the Band from 2001 – 2003.

Pathology

PATHOLOGY is epitomized as the ultimate death metal assault to the ears. The band’s hunger to churn out bludgeoning metal coupled with meaningful themes instantly separates them from the rest.

It comes as no surprise that PATHOLOGY have created some of the most vivid and grotesque death metal in the current genre. The founding members of PATHOLOGY have roots in other extreme death metal bands, such as drummer Dave Astor as the founding member of both the grind-spazz project THE LOCUST and militant death squad CATTLE DECAPITATION.

PATHOLOGY’s current formation stands at its strongest with Dave Astor on drums, Daniel Richardson guitar, bass player Richard Jackson and vocalist Obie Flett to diversify the perfect lineup. Revealing an intense mixture of brutal riffs, crushing drums and imagery so blood-soaked, sickeningly twisted and filled with death that it’s impossible to look away.

Moonshine Bandits

Backwoods bravado, patriot’s pride, country soul, keg-thumping beats — these are the qualities that Moonshine Bandits have championed since they began their journey. Armed with a hybrid arsenal of country and hip hop fusion, the California duo of Dusty ‘Tex’ Dahlgren and Brett ‘Bird’ Brooks are back with the grittiest, spirited and distinctly grass-roots release of their sixteen year campaign of musical badassery – “Gold Rush.”

Since their formation in Los Banos California in 2003 the Moonshine Bandits have continued a campaign of crossover genre-bending musical mayhem that appeals to the eclectic, color-outside-the-lines tastes of listeners, aka The Shiners, and they fiercely refuse to have their tastes confined and filed into categories. “Our musical style has always been full throttle and in your face,” says Moonshine Bandit Tex. Just like the rumrunners, bootleggers, smugglers and outlaws of old – the Moonshine Bandits provide a supply of the goods for the demand, defying the mandates and trends of mainstream pop culture.

Welcome to the Spit Cup Posse!!!

After a SOLD OUT SHOW in 2016, Bryan Thomas and JT Adams were sitting in the living room as they had done so many times before…playing music, writing lyrics, and buzzing from the show they had just played. It was years of work that had led them to this point in their careers. It was the first year Bryan Thomas and his band had began to sell out midsize theaters and it was at that time that JT Adams and his band started making a name for themselves on a regional level. The friendship that was in place started to become something special. The congruence and unity was unmatched in any project they had ever been a part of. As they sat on the couch relaxing and jamming, JT started rapping. Bryan had been playing shows with Demun Jones and had been interested in getting involved in a country rap song or project. They spent 2 years planning and finally the planets aligned and Long Cut was born!!

Since inception, Long Cut has recorded 12 songs to release in the coming year and have already started selling out shows around the country! Their fans share camaraderie and connection with the guys and are already turning into a dedicated following of all ages! The high octane fusion of hard hitting outlaw country and hip hop has the crowd going crazy! Stay tuned folks! This is something special.



Friday, April 3  ·  The Dales / Berkley Hart

Doors open at 7:00 pm
More information

The Dales

The Dales are a five piece Americana roots-rock band, carried by three part harmonies and a deep appreciation for classic songwriting and early country music.

The band came together in early 2016 when multi-platinum song writer, Drew Lawrence, (Christina Perri – Jar of Hearts) teamed up with four of his closest friends to begin performing the songs that would become their debut album, “Marie”.

A video of their song, “Still the Love” caught the ears of Grammy nominated producer Jerry Streeter (The Lumineers, Brandi Carlile). The song was written as a dedication to bass player Kyle Vanes’ girlfriend, Heather Marie Allman who passed from Breast Cancer the year before.

This led to Jerry producing the bands debut album, “Marie” which was released in August of 2017. The Dales have spent the year on the highways of America supporting acts like the White Buffalo and Cris Jacobs. The group has also headlined sold out shows in Los Angeles as well as the west coast and midwest. Media play soon followed with features on NPR’s World Cafe and Acoustic Cafe as well as TV interviews on NBC and ABC.

Berkley Hart

For the last two decades Jeff Berkley and Calman Hart have been entertaining audiences with their natural down-home humor and masterfully-crafted songs . In 2018, they celebrated their 20th anniversary with a live performance of their debut album, “Wreck ‘N Sow”. Released in 2000, “Wreck ‘N Sow” was a critical success out of the box, winning the San Diego Music Award for Best Local Recording and helping Berkley Hart take home the coveted Best New Artist trophy as well. SLAMM magazine said of it, “Sometimes an album surfaces that is so emotionally and musically authentic that it crumbles resistance to its genre.” In the years since, they’ve played festivals, performing arts centers, and house concerts all over the country, recording another 10 albums and winning several more awards along the way. In 2016 alone, they put out three albums: “BHST” (with Eve Selis and Marc Intravaia), “A Berkley Hart Christmas”, and “Fleur De Lis”, a powerful collection of 20 songs combining their trademark vocal harmony and unique acoustic style to create a listening experience that is, as one critic put it, “warm and peaceful as a summer evening on the bayou”. They have also become well-known for their theme-shows, most notably their productions of “O Berkley Where Hart Thou”, an old-timey tribute to classic Americana, and their recreation of “The Last Waltz”, a passionate homage to The Band’s 1976 farewell concert. In 2019 Berkley Hart are still doing their best to live up to that SLAMM review of 20 years ago. Their latest release “While The Night Is Still Young” recently won the SDMA for Best Americana Album. If early reviews of it are any indication, their reputation for performances that are “emotionally and musically authentic” is alive and well.

    Amir Derakh and Ryan Shuck have been musical partners for 15+ years. During their time together they have weaved in and out of mainstream music like a constantly evolving musical fashion house. In the late 90’s they were responsible for massive radio and sales hits such as “Blind” (Korn), “Blue Monday”,” Stitches”, and “Fiction” (Orgy), and recently “Crawl Back In” and “Let Down” (Dead By Sunrise with their pal Chester Bennington). After enjoying years of traditional music business success, they have spent the last 10 years methodically moving away from the mainstream approach that put them on the map, opting to carefully steer their fans in a new direction, towards their new independent alternative electro rock project Julien-K – which sounds more at home with the likes of modern acts such as M83, The Kills, LCD Soundsystem, The Naked and Famous, Empire of the Sun, and even the Black Keys (see Derakh’s sleazy electro-blues guitar playing on “We’re Here With You”).

    According to BestClassicBands.com, The Who were riding high on the early success of Tommy when they played the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD, on May 25, 1969. Opening the show was a relatively new English band whose first album had been released in January of that year: Led Zeppelin. The Who’s crew had to pull the plug on Zeppelin when their eight-song set–which included “Dazed and Confused” and “Train Kept A-Rollin’” and “Babe I’m Gonna Leave You”–went over its scheduled time to prevent the headliner’s show from going past curfew. Led Zeppelin’s name was misspelled on the tickets (“Lead”), which cost a mere $5.75 – even a bargain in those days. (BestClassicBands.com)

    Mickey Avalon

    Mickey Avalon’s life story plays out like an episode of VH1′s ‘Behind The Music,” marred by personal tragedy, triumphs and immense pain. Avalon’s back-story begins on the streets of Hollywood, California. Raised by his heroin-addicted father, he began selling pot at a young age, a trade he acquired from his mother. In an attempt to clean up his act, Mickey converted to Orthodox Judaism in his late teens, an effort that didn’t last due to constant family tragedy, such as his father’s death in a tragic drunk driving accident.

    By his early 20s, Mickey had married, had a daughter, and moved out of California, relocating to Portland, Oregon. The serine surroundings of the Pacific Northwest couldn’t hide Mickey from his past for long, as his drug addled Hollywood lifestyle caught up with him in the form of an uncontrollable heroin addiction. As his life neared rock bottom, Mickey found himself broke, divorced, and turning to prostitution, just to support his smack habit. With a desire to once again get his life back on track, Avalon moved in with his sister, and the pair set out on the road to recovery. Tragedy struck again when his sister relapsed, and died from a heroin overdose.

    After the deaths of both his father and sister, Mickey decided that he wanted more out of life, moved back to Los Angeles, and chose to make one final attempt to clean up his act. Shortly after his return, Mickey was befriended by ex-MTV VJ Simon Rex (aka Dirt Nasty), who encouraged Avalon to pursue his passion of hip-hop and even collaborated with him on some tracks. At the time, Avalon was staying in a sober living facility and had a strict curfew, so Dirt Nasty began passing out Mickey’s demo at Hollywood clubs, which helped Mickey develop a following among fans of the Los Angeles nightclub scene.

    Easy Wind

    Easy Wind has built a reputation of creating shows that pull deeply from the vibe and feel of classic ’70’s era Grateful Dead, a period when The Dead were firing on all cylinders of youth, exuberance, and creativity.

    Coming from a virtual lifetime of studying and performing their catalog, Easy Wind cooks up setlists that would fit right in with the epic runs of Europe ’72, Spring ’77, or other magical runs of that era.

    Easy Wind has the unique ability to embody the style, the jams, and the riffs that were the trademark of Garcia, Weir, and the rest of the band in their heyday.

    The bus came by… It’s time to get on and experience Easy Wind.

With over 10 years on the road, Sam Morrison and Turn the Page continue to tour the US bringing Bob Seger’s music to his fans.
