Allison Chains

Allison Chains is the world’s only all-female tribute to Alice In Chains.

Based out of Los Angeles, the band delivers heavy metal riffs, hypnotic acoustic sounds, and unique harmonies, creating the haunting, tortured sound that put Alice In Chains at the forefront of Seattle’s early “grunge” bands. These extraordinary female rockers are seasoned, accomplished performers with many individual achievements and awards. They authentically recreate Layne Stayley’s wailing rage, Jerry Cantrell’s melodic guitar fervor, Mike Starr and Mike Inez’s powerful bass lines, and Sean Kinney’s grinding rhythms. Allison Chains performs songs from every classic album: Facelift, Dirt, Alice In Chains, Sap, and Jar of Flies. The Allison Chains AIC music tribute brings you back to the early 1990’s when hair bands were receding, grunge was all the rage, and flannel was in high fashion.

2Hot 2Handle

2Hot 2Handle (2H2H) is an all-female tribute to the legendary band UFO and also to the Michael Schenker Group. Based in Los Angeles, 2H2H was created in 2016 and immediately gained attention…even from U.F.O. themselves. Their energy, passion, and talent has earned the respect of those who said it couldn’t be done. They are fun to watch too, and some of the unplanned antics of band members have made for very entertaining performances!

Last In Line – The original Dio band

What started as a casual Dio band reunion jam in a Los Angeles rehearsal room in 2011 has grown into a fully-fledged project that has taken on a life of its own. Last In Line, the band, takes its name from the second Dio album released in 1984. Vinny Appice, Jimmy Bain and Vivian Campbell were Ronnie Dio’s co-conspirators and co-writers on the “Holy Diver”, “Last In Line” and “Sacred Heart” albums – these records have gone on to become part of rock history. During that first jam it was apparent that the chemistry of the original band was very much intact – even after a 27 year hiatus.

The excitement generated by that rediscovery led to a second session, where this time they called in acclaimed vocalist Andrew Freeman. Hearing Andrew’s interpretations of the original Dio songs was a revelation and the inspiration to move forward as a band. Over the ensuing years a handful of local LA shows led to a handful of overseas shows in the U.K. and Japan, and eventually to an offer from Frontiers to record a new album of original material.

During the course of 2014 the band wrote and recorded with longtime friend Jeff Pilson as producer. Jeff very much captured the organic crunch of the band and the very best in Andrew’s voice and delivery. Last In Line’s acclaimed debut album, “Heavy Crown” was released in February 2016, with the singles “Devil In Me” and “Starmaker” leading the charge.

The release was preceded by tragedy, when bassist Jimmy Bain passed away, another great musician taken from us far too soon. Bringing in renowned and long time friend bassist Phil Soussan and keyboardist Erik Norlander the band went on to tour the world playing festivals and packed houses everywhere. Playing the classic Dio tunes and a mix of tracks from “Heavy Crown” fans got to hear the classics and future classic songs.

2017-2018 brings Last In Line into the studio to record “Last In Line II” an even stronger mix of original songs, again produced by Jeff Pilson. Tour dates coming for 2018/2019 in support of the upcoming release on Frontiers Records.

Symbolic

As a heavy-hitting dynamic force hailing from the power/prog metal midst of the San Diego, California music scene, Symbolic combines their melodic energy and excitement for what will be their fifth CD later this year.

Since the first three years of their conception, increasingly impressive efforts helped build a strong following locally and internationally. Opening for well-known national acts such as Adrenaline Mob, Fates Warning, UFO, Brian Wheat (of Tesla fame), PHILM with Dave Lombardo, guitar legend Michael Schenker, Doro Pesch and others, it was no surprise that Symbolic found themselves in very close company of great music notables.

Gungor

Michael and Lisa Gungor are curators of the Grammy-nominated musical collective simply known as Gungor. The duo uses their skills as accomplished song writers and multi-instrumentalists to tell honest and forthright stories – some personal and some allegorical. Together they’ve tapped their considerable musical reserves to blur genres and break expectations creating a unique magnetic expression.

Gungor is in the midst of their most ambitious endeavor to date called One Wild Life, which is comprised of three full-length albums – Soul, Spirit and Body. On August 7, 2015, they kicked off the album trilogy with One Wild Life: Soul, which debuted as the #15 album on the iTunes Alternative chart. “One Wild Life: Spirit,” released on March 25, 2016. The final piece of the album trilogy concludes with One Wild Life: Body, which releases on September 30, 2016. While each record carries with it its own distinct vibe, the album series presents a body of work that celebrates the adventure and challenges faced by Michael and Lisa Gungor since the release of their album I Am Mountain in 2013.

Queen Nation – A Tribute to Queen

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.

Sponge

Sponge has proven to be one of the Motor City’s heaviest hitters after gaining international notoriety with their debut album “Rotting Piñata” (Sony). Emerging from Detroit with hits like “Plowed” and “Molly (16 Candles)” Sponge received massive airplay on radio stations from coast to coast and were in heavy rotation on MTV. Both “Plowed” and “Molly” hit #5 on Billboard’s Modern Rock Charts, catapulting “Rotting Piñata” to Gold, and ultimately Platinum status.

Sponge’s follow up CD, the critically lauded “Wax Ecstatic” (Columbia) scored additional top ten Billboard hits including “Wax Ecstatic” and “Have You Seen Mary?” The band’s music was also featured in popular movies “The Craft,” “Chasing Amy,” “Mall Rats” and “Empire Records.” Sponge’s star continued to rise with network appearances on “The Late Show with David Letterman” and the “Conan O’Brien Show.”

Sponge’s subsequent releases “New Pop Sunday,” “For All The Drugs in The World,” “The Man,” “Galore Galore,” and “Destroy the Boy,” showcased the band’s swirling sonic attack, rooted in 70’s glam and of course, the Motor City influences of The Stooges, The MC5 and Motown-but still sounding distinctly like no one else.

“Plowed” continues to be the band’s signature rock track, having been spotlighted on Guitar Hero’s “Warriors of Rock – 90’s Rock Track Pack” – and on the Paper Jamz Guitar Series 2, in addition to the soundtrack for the Gerard Butler surf movie “Chasing Mavericks.”
