Who’s Zeppelin

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)

The Who Experience (TM) Tribute Band brings you back to 1969 performing a tribute to the 2 GREATEST classic rock n roll bands of all time in one show called WHO’S ZEPPELIN (TM) ! A tribute to The Who and Led Zeppelin! A perfect match!

Oz Noy

“It’s Jazz. It just doesn’t sound like it.”

This is how virtuoso guitarist Oz Noy describes his intoxicating blend of jazz, funk, rock, blues, and r&b.
Born in Israel, Oz started his professional career at the age of 13 playing jazz, blues, pop and rock music. By age 16, he was playing with top Israeli musicians and artists. By age 24, he was one of the most established studio guitar players in the country. Oz was also a member of the house band on Israel’s top-rated television show for more than two years.

Since his 1996 arrival in New York, Oz has made a huge impact on the local and international music scene. His unique and intoxicating style has broken all the rules of instrumental guitar music by focusing on the groove. All stars such as Keith Carlock, Anton Fig, Vinnie Colaiuta, Dennis Chambers, Chris Layton, Steve Ferrone and Dave Weckl often contribute on drums, with bassists Will Lee, James Genus, John Patitucci and Roscoe Beck.

For his accomplishments as a trend-setting guitarist, Oz won the highly acclaimed Guitar Player magazine readers poll for “Best guitar riff on a record” in 2007, “Best new talent” in 2008, and “Best out there guitar player” in 2013.

More information

Molly Hatchet

In the early 1970s, a new form of music was emerging in the South. A mixture of blues, country, gospel and the English invasion of rock and roll that later was to be coined the phrase “Southern Rock.” The music was filled with style and emotion and with bands in the forefront such as the Allman Brothers, Lynyrd Skynyrd and a band from Jacksonville, Florida called Molly Hatchet. Named after a famous 17th-century axe murderess “hatchet molly” who would behead her lovers with the hand tool Lizzy Borden made famous.

Their self-titled debut album was released on Epic records in 1978 and reached multi-platinum status as the band established their reputation of working hard, playing tough and living fast through intense touring with such bands as Aerosmith, Bob Seger, The Rolling Stones and many more. In 1979, Flirtin’ With Disaster was released and history was in the making. The band continued touring on the road with an average of 250 live shows per year and like the first album, it also achieved multi-platinum status. Lead singer, Danny Joe Brown left the band in 1980 and contacted Bobby Ingram, a Jacksonville-based guitarist and friend, who gave brown his first singing gig in 1975 with a Jacksonville based band called Rum Creek. Brown and Ingram then put together with keyboardist John Galvin the Danny Joe Brown Band and continued touring until 1982. The album was produced by Glyn Johns at Compass Point Studios in the Bahamas as he has worked with legendary artist The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, The Who, The Eagles and many more.

During this time, Beatin’ The Odds (1980) and Take No Prisoners (1981) was released with singer Jimmy Farrar. Brown returned to record No Guts … No Glory (1983), The Deed Is Done (1984) and Double Trouble Live (1985).In the fall of 1985, Bobby Ingram of Jacksonville came into the band as lead guitar and songwriter and the band continued to tour over 200 dates a year and in 1989 record Lightning Strikes Twice for capitol records.

In 1990, while Ingram, Galvin, and Brown continued the tradition as Molly Hatchet the tough touring schedule lead to the other member’s departure from the band. The Greatest Hits album was released in 1991 and certified gold. The band from 1990 until 1995 took a break from recording but continued to write new songs and tour in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Devil’s Canyon, the first studio album in 6 years was then recorded in Hamburg, Germany in 1996 under the care and guidance of Rainer Hansel, CBH Records. With producers Kalle Trapp and Bobby Ingram the album was voted the number one rock record in Europe for 1996. With a history of diabetes, brown was unable to fulfill studio and touring responsibilities and he brought in Phil McCormack to take over the lead vocal position. Long time member Bobby Ingram – lead guitar, Phil McCormack – lead vocals, John Galvin – keyboards, Bryan Bassett – lead guitar, Andy McKinney – bass, Mac Crawford – drums, make up the current lineup.

Rock N Roll Band: The Music Of Boston

A tribute to the music of Boston is not easily accomplished. Not if you want to do it justice. What you need are talented, dedicated, professional musicians who love the music, and pay attention to details, of which there are many. Close enough doesn’t cut it. The goal is not to pass off some half baked version because, “no one knows the difference”. That’s not possible with Boston’s music.

The goal of Rock N Roll Band is to be good enough to play for the man himself, and the legion of fans who expect nothing less than top notch sound and performance.
Rock N Roll Band was formed with all this in mind: the music, the show, the legacy, and the respect for Tom Scholz, Brad Delp and the many fine musicians who have graced the stage to support them.

“When we got up on stage and got ready to play, everybody’d listen.”

We Belong

We Belong celebrates Pat Benatar and her husband/guitar player Neil Giraldo. As a power duo that began in 1979 it’s a deserving tribute to a couple that continues to pack venues today. With their breakout hit Heartbreaker Pat and Neil showed the world that females can rock with the best of them. Pat and Neil made musical history by being the first female and guitarist, respectively, to appear on MTV inspiring many young singers and musicians. Now on tour celebrating 40 years of hit songs Pat and Neil can still rock. We Belong brings you those same hit songs in a uniquely similar package.

A tribute to Pat Benatar and Neil Giraldo can only be done right by another couple who have shared the stage for many years. Debbie and Mike Sierras have been married and performing together throughout Southern California for 30 years years making this a fitting tribute. For years they talked about starting a tribute band but hadn’t settled on a group. They realized one day after going to a Benatar/Giraldo concert how many similarities they have with the Giraldos and it was decided. We Belong was officially formed in the summer of 2015 and they had their debut concert at M15 in Corona in January of 2016. Their first year proved to be everything they had hoped for and more. In August of 2016 Debbie and Mike had the great privilege of meeting their mentors, Pat and Neil, when they performed in their home town of Temecula, CA. It was quite an honor as Pat and Neil wished them luck and provided them seats to their concert. That same month they had the honor of sharing the stage with Roger Capps, Pat and Neil’s original bassist! As quoted by Roger “They have an amazing sound and style! One of the Best Tribs I’ve heard!!” Roger has since performed numerous shows with We Belong. They capped off 2016 by winning the Temecula Valley Music Awards Tribute band category.

Savoy Brown

Ruf recording artists, Savoy Brown, are still rocking … 50 plus years after the band formed in London, England in 1965.

One of the first bands from the UK, after The Rolling Stones, to re-invent the blues in the mid-sixties, Savoy Brown, led by guitarist Kim Simmonds, continues to perform, record and influence today.

Modern rock music had its roots in the 1960’s while bands, such as Savoy Brown, helped lay the foundation by combining blues, rock and psychedelia. The band is a veritable history of music, and musicians, with multiple former members going on to form bands such as Foghat, or to play for groups such as Fleetwood Mac, Black Sabbath, The Kinks and many more.

Founding member, Kim Simmonds, has a star on the Rock Walk of Fame and is recognized globally as one of the world’s finest blues/rock players. Says Kim, “I enjoy entertaining, keeping the music alive and giving people inspiration”.

Many of the band’s original songs continue to be played on radio, TV and in movies. Shows including “CSI”, HBO’s “Vinyl”, and a recent Jimi Hendrix movie biopic, gave life once again to Billboard hits such as “Tell Mama” and “Train To Nowhere”.

These songs, and many others (from nearly fifty album releases), all hit high on the Billboard charts while Top 40 albums, such as “Hellbound Train”, made the band a major concert headline act.

The band has headlined on all the world’s finest stages, including the Royal Albert Hall, Madison Square Garden, Carnegie Hall and both Fillmores.

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.

Friday, October 1  ·  Jackyl

Jackyl

It’s been 25 years since Jackyl shot out of Georgia with its wild, untamed and uncouth approach to rock ‘n’ roll. Equal parts hard rock, heavy metal and Southern rock, Jackyl formed in 1991 and brought back rock ‘n’ roll back — back to its down-to-earth, wild, fun-loving origins. Full of spit and swagger — and a “dirty” sense of humor to boot — Jackyl quickly earned a deal with Geffen Records. Jackyl’s live shows were already legendary before the ink dried on the Geffen contract.

The 1992 self-titled debut album went platinum and featured notable rock radio hits like “Down On Me,” “When Will It Rain,” “I Stand Alone” and, most notably, “The Lumberjack,” during which vocalist Jesse James Dupree performed a chain-saw solo. Dupree’s chain-saw escapades on album and in concert became one of many Jackyl trademarks. With the release of ‘Jackyl’ hit the road and barely left it since. Just long enough to record new albums. Touring mates in those early days included Aerosmith, Kiss, ZZ Top, Ted Nugent and Damn Yankees. 1993 saw “Mental *@%.!” featured on ‘The Beavis & Butt-head Experience,’ a compilation album of songs tied in with MTV’s hit cartoon series; it was eventually certified triple platinum. 1994 was one of the most important years in the band’s career. The second album, ‘Push Comes To Shove,’ hit the streets and went gold. That August, Jackyl turned in one of the most acclaimed performances at Woodstock ’94 in Saugerties, NY, and the resulting double album ‘Woodstock 94’ went platinum and included “Headed For Destruction” (a track from ‘Push Comes To Shove’). The live recording ‘Night Of The Living Dead’ was released exclusively in Europe on Mayhem Records in 1996.

It wasn’t long before Jackyl followed A&R legend John Kalodner (who had signed them to Geffen) to Sony Music’s imprint Epic Records. ‘Cut the Crap’ was released in 1997 and benefited from two industry heavyweights overseeing its recording: producer Mike Fraser (AC/DC, Metallica) and mixer Kevin Shirley (silverchair, Aerosmith). This album spawned the rock radio hit “Locked and Loaded,” which included guest vocals by AC/DC’s Brian Johnson. It was the first time Johnson had ever recorded with any artist but AC/DC since he joined the band 17 years earlier. A collection of B-sides titled ‘Stayin’ Alive’ appeared on Shimmering Tone Records in 1998 but the biggest highlight of the year was Geffen’s release of the best-of collection ‘Choice Cuts’ and the related promotional events Jackyl did to help promote it.

The band earned two Guinness Book of World Records citations and the designation “The Hardest Working Band in Rock ‘N’ Roll” for performing 100 shows in 50 days as well as 21 shows in 24 hours. Dupree says the most grueling of the two was 21 shows in 24 hours; Jackyl completed that task in Texas, and the shows were all done with full lights and sound. The daytime sets were 45 minutes long whereas the ones done at nighttime were between 90 and 120 minutes long. Jackyl released ‘Relentless’ on Humidity Records in 2002. It contained the second collaboration with Brian Johnson, “Kill the Sunshine.” Universal Music/Geffen Records also issued a Jackyl volume as part of its acclaimed ’20th Century Masters – The Millennium Collection’ best-of series in 2003. For a band that built its reputation as road warriors, it’s surprising that a full-length live album meant for worldwide release did not appear until 2004 with the separate release of the ‘Live at the Full Throttle Saloon’ CD and DVD on Sanctuary Records. ‘Live at the Full Throttle Saloon’ was recorded and filmed in summer 2003 in Sturgis, South Dakota, as part of the legendary annual biker rally festivities held there.

In 2010, the band completed their release titled “My Moonshine Kicks Your Cocaine’s Ass”. Staying true to their working band roots, ever since 2008 Jackyl has been on the road playing the summer festival circuit as well as many other choice, off-season venues.

Kanan Road Band

Formed by brothers Kanan Cox, Kyle Cox & Kory Cox, this southern tinged rock band Kanan Road has enjoyed over 20 years of success playing stages all over the U.S. The brothers formed the band as teenagers living in Southern California, first emulating their biggest influences, which consist of Lynyrd Skynyrd, Bad Company, Marshall Tucker Band, The Allman Brothers, Jackson Browne, The Eagles, Tom Petty, Stevie Ray Vaughn and many others. The band name Kanan Road, which is an actual road in Malibu, California, was chosen as an ode to their father & mentor, Kevin Cox, who used to take the winding Kanan Rd. to get down to the Malibu coast to surf every day as a teen. With heavy influence from their dad, the brothers began writing and recording their own songs in the early 2000’s and have been performing at least 100 shows per year for the last decade.

Together with fellow members Bruce James on Bass and Jake Herzberg on Drums, Kanan Road delivers high-octane, in-your-face live performances filled with stellar 3-part vocal harmonies, kickass guitar riffs, combined with their 70’s classic rock flavored original songs that sound refreshingly nostalgic, real & raw.

Kanan Road has shared stages with hit rockers like Blue Oyster Cult, The Marshall Tucker Band, and Molly Hatchet, along with many country music stars like Trace Adkins, Lonestar, Love & Theft, Chase Bryant, Gloriana, The Band Perry, Scotty McCreery, Joe Nichols, Easton Corbin, and Josh Gracin at venues that have ranged from The House of Blues to the world famous Bluebird Cafe in Nashville, TN. The band released their newest album “Feed My Fire” in 2017, which is available on cd or digital download on iTunes & CDBaby. Kanan Road is the real deal. Real songs, real instruments, real players, real music! Stay tuned for new music soon, as the band will be heading back into the studio to record their newest release sometime in 2021.

Guitar Shorty

Legendary guitarist/vocalist Guitar Shorty is a giant in the blues world. Credited with influencing both Jimi Hendrix and Buddy Guy, Guitar Shorty has been electrifying audiences for five decades with his supercharged live shows and his incendiary recordings. Like a bare knuckled boxer, Shorty strikes with his blistering, physical guitar playing and his fierce vocals, connecting directly with body and soul. What really sets Shorty apart is his absolutely unpredictable, off-the-wall guitar playing. He reaches for sounds, riffs and licks that other blues players wouldn’t even think of. Amazon.com says his guitar work “sounds like a caged tiger before feeding time. His molten guitar pours his psychedelicized solos like lava over anything in his path.” The Chicago Reader declares, “Guitar Shorty is a battle-scarred hard-ass. He slices off his phrases and notes with homicidal fury. He is among the highest-energy blues entertainers on the scene.”

Through the years, Shorty has performed with blues and R&B luminaries like Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, B.B. King, Guitar Slim and T-Bone Walker. He started playing with these legends while still in his teens and recorded a handful of singles for a variety of labels and an obscure LP during the first 30 years of his career. After decades of paying his dues (like so many unheralded American bluesmen), it took a tour of England to establish Shorty’s fame in his home country. His recordings since then all received massive critical acclaim, and his renowned live performances have kept him constantly in demand all over the world. His 2004 Alligator Records debut, Watch Your Back, became his best-received, best-selling album to date. His 2006 follow-up, We The People, won the coveted Blues Music Award for Best Contemporary Blues Album Of The Year. Now, with his new CD, Bare Knuckle, Guitar Shorty unleashes a barrage of hard-hitting combinations of guitar, vocals and lyrics, hitting his listeners with some of the most awe-inspiring guitar and vocal work of his long career.

THE BLACK MOODS play raw, amplified rock & roll and are known for their galvanizing live performance which has seen them appear alongside acts such as The Doors’ Robbie Krieger, Shinedown, Jane’s Addiction, Whitesnake, Collective Soul and The Gin Blossoms.

Born in the Arizona desert and reared on stages across North America, the band delivers a fresh, fiery update of a timeless sound. The trio—consisting of vocalist/guitarist JOSH KENNEDY, drummer CHICO DIAZ and bassist JORDAN HOFFMAN–share a story of success and growth despite a global pandemic and amidst all odds working against them. Refusing to postpone the May 2020 release of their critically acclaimed sophomore album SUNSHINE, THE BLACK MOODS went full steam ahead, marking several career highlights along the way including their first-ever Top 20 Billboard Active Rock charting single, title track “Sunshine,” which peaked at #16, and a cover feature with their hometown local weekly newspaper, Phoenix New Times (May 7, 2020). The album, recorded at a makeshift studio in the band’s rehearsal space with Grammy- nominated producer Johnny K (Disturbed, 3 Doors Down), generated three additional album singles which made the Top 30 charts including “Bad News” (#24), “Bella Donna” (#29) and “Whatcha Got (#30).

While live music was at a halt, THE BLACK MOODS packed up their studio and moved it to the Ozarks, hometown of KENNEDY, and set up their studio in the home of their label owners, Steelhorse Entertainment while reenlisting Johnny K. to track their next full-length release due later this year. During this time, the band also remotely recorded a single with legendary producer Eddie Kramer (Led Zeppelin, The Beatles), released a heartwarming music video for their ballad “Home” and shared a fiery cover of their idol Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers’ 1978 track “I Need To Know,” which received airplay on SiriusXM’s Tom Petty Radio show.

GEOFF and the band — currently comprised of Kieran Robertson on guitar, Jack Ross on bass, Scott Moughton on guitar and Felix Bohnke on drums — will be performing all eleven songs from the album back-to-back, in its entirety. And to throw it completely over the top, the forthcoming shows will be kicked off by a complete performance of Queensryche’s second studio album, Rage for Order, another eleven song gem that featured the singles, “Gonna Get Close to You,” “The Whisper” and “Walk in the Shadows.” Just a few years after its release in the summer of ’86, Kerrang! magazine called it one of the “100 Greatest Heavy Metal Albums of All-Time.”

That’s right, both “Rage for Order” and “Empire” all in one night!

Pet Shark

Pet Shark is a progressive rock, instrumental band from Orange County, California featuring and co-founded by Keith Moreland on guitar, and Ted Morton on drums, percussion, keyboards and other various sound effects.

Bass Guitarist Matt Bissonette recorded on the first and second album, but because of his busy recording and touring schedule (with Elton John), he is not able to join the band for the live shows. So they’ve been joined by bass guitarist Russ Reshaw who has been on the road with the band Two or More for the last ten years, playing over 120 dates per year. Russ has also performed with Bobby Kimball, former lead singer of the band Toto. Russ is an amazing bass player, but best of all, he’s a great guy. The band is very pleased to have him.

They are all seasoned professionals both in the studio and at live performances. Collectively, they have played with such musicians as Crystal Lewis, Dennis Agajanian, Darryl Mansfield, John and Anne Barbour, Steve Camp, Terry Clark, Two or More, Bryan Duncan, Bobby Kimball, and countless others.

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.

Taz Taylor

Taz Taylor was exposed at a very early age to the golden era of Rock Guitar playing. Michael Schenker in UFO and then in his own band MSG, Gary Moore in his late-70s/early-80s heyday, Randy Rhoads and Jake E. Lee and of course the early Van Halen albums, all left an indelible mark on the musical psyche of Taz.

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.

“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.

Loudness

Loudness was formed in May 1981, after Akira TAKASAKI and Munetaka HIGUCHI left the Japanese pop band Lazy to explore heavier styles of music. Based on their early sound, it would seem that they wanted to become the “Van Halen” of Japan. Joined by the extremely capable vocalist Minoru NIIHARA (formerly from EARTHSHAKER) and Akira’s childhood friend, Masayoshi YAMASHITA on bass guitar.

The Midnight Devils are Sniper on lead guitar, Sam Spade on bass and vocals, and the indestructable Jimmy Mess behind the kit.
