The Black Lillies

Over the summer of 2017, Americana darlings The Black Lillies launched an experiment … a songwriting challenge for themselves that forced them to be accountable to their fans.

“The Sprinter Sessions” were a series of live videos broadcast via Facebook Live from the back of their Sprinter van while driving down the highway or at stops around the country, from the frozen cityscape of Philadelphia in late winter to the side of a Midwestern backroad with fallow fields stretching to the horizon. In various combinations, the Lillies — founder/songwriter Cruz Contreras, bass player/songwriter Sam Quinn, guitarist/songwriter Dustin Schaefer and drummer/songwriter Bowman Townsend — committed themselves to recording a brand new song every week. They weren’t lavishly orchestrated or fully fleshed out; sometimes lyrics had been written mere minutes prior to the broadcast. The songs were performed on acoustic instruments still grimy from shows the night before, and the guys didn’t bother to pick out their finest threads. Quinn, more often than not, played shirtless.

“You’re putting songs out there that weren’t finished, weren’t perfectly arranged, and we might barely have been able to perform them,” Contreras says. “We might be tired or hungover, playing them at a truck stop or wherever. It wasn’t glamorous — but it held us accountable to that a rate of productivity that was really important, and it kept our fans up to speed with the evolution of the group — even if a lot of them did offer to send us clothes or food!”

More than anything else, “The Sprinter Sessions” set the stage for “Stranger to Me,” their new album. The band’s first since the departure of longtime member Trisha Gene Brady, it has been highly anticipated by fans and members of the media who were curious to hear the “new” Black Lillies. It’s been a slow roll-out, but the new record is the sound of a group that’s been renewed and reinvigorated, anchored to the traditions that made it so beloved by so many but chiseled down to the bare essentials: Four men. Four friends. Four artists, each of whom could rightly put out a solo record tomorrow, tied
together by a bond to something that’s greater than the sum of its parts.

Farm Truck

Farm Truck is an Alt Country / Americana band from Ramona California.

Jimmy Thackery

Jimmy Thackery has made his career as a musician for over 40 years, traveling the globe from big festivals to everyone’s favorite neighborhood bars. A true professional musician, Jimmy gives his audience his best each and every performance, respecting and appreciating his fans along the way. His music reaches people’s lives in personal and profound ways, as witnessed by the touching messages he receives during and after each tour.

Spare Keys is an all-original album, with six instrumentals and six tunes with vocals. These songs use all the keys available on guitar, running the gamut from soulful blues in Blues All Night, to heart-wrenching blues in I Even Lost the Blues and You Can’t Come Back. His rock roots shine in Puttin’ the Word Out and Fightin’ in the Jungle, which also features howler monkeys recorded at the Xunantunich Mayan Ruins in Belize.

Blitz Brothers Band

The BLITZ Brothers were perhaps the earliest local blues-rock trio, as well as the longest running in that format. Playing local venues 6 nights a week- often up to 6 month stretches per venue- the band gained the most notoriety for their opening shows with the largest touring bands of the day. They took a well deserved break in 1986, reforming 8 years ago to do concert shows- with Barney Roach replacing the late Danny Blitz on bass and backing vocals, and Calvin Lakin replacing the late Dickie Dodd of ‘The Standels’ fame on drums. The trio has stayed true to its original sound and love for the heavier side of the blues, with Richard Blitz perpetuating “the BLITZ sound” for over 4 decades now. Recent show hi-lites include The Yuma Blues Festival, Johnny Winter, Leon Russell, Ace Frehley, Dennis Quaid, Pat Travers, Jimmy Thackery, Bugs Henderson, Walter Trout, and many many more.

Candlebox

Emerging from Seattle’s burgeoning mid 1990’s grunge scene, Candlebox quickly found mainstream success with their deep, lyrically driven melodies and big radio hooks. Power anthems like “Far Behind” and “You,” from their debut, self titled album exploded on to the charts propelling the album to sell more than four million copies worldwide.

Later albums would showcase their versatility between emotionally charged, brooding ballads like “Cover Me” and groove infused, straight up rock n’ roll tunes including “Change” and “Arrow”. The 2016 release of Disappearing In Airports found Candlebox revealing a more classic rock vibe with songs like “Vexatious” and “Supernova” driving the album to debut at #9 on the Billboard Charts.

In 2019 the band will be touring, both domestically and internationally, to support their 25th Anniversary, and the group has announced plans to start writing and recording new music in the year ahead.

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.

The Aristocrats

The Aristocrats (Guthrie Govan, Bryan Beller and Marco Minnemann) have released critically acclaimed albums, toured the world, and established themselves as one of the most musically original, refreshingly irreverent, and astoundingly entertaining instrumental rock-fusion acts on the planet. Call them a virtuoso supergroup if you must, but their musical high-wire act – employing random amounts of rock, jazz, pop, metal, and even traditional country – is informed by the spirit of a true band, one whose improvisational soul allows for anything to happen onstage at any moment…including the occasional wink and nod at the audience. 

The Aristocrats are touring to promote their most ambitious and exploratory studio album yet, entitled You Know What…?, and will be supported by fellow rock-fusioners, Travis Larson Band. 

Travis Larson Band

With seven studio albums and three full-length performance DVDs, the award-winning Travis Larson Band is firmly rooted as one of instrumental music’s premiere acts, having worked on record with Steve Lukather (Toto), Victor Wooten (Bela Fleck), Dave LaRue (Joe Satriani, John Petrucci, Dixie Dregs), Vinx (Sting, Herbie Hancock).


Years of ambitious touring and shared live billing with notables such as Ted Nugent, UFO, Steve Morse (Deep Purple, Dixie Dregs), The Aristocrats, has established the band’s reputation for live performances that masterfully deliver full throttle rock-fusion.

“Silky bends, sweet legato lines, and tuneful shred characterize Larson’s playing… instrumental rock fans should catch this guy.”
