Founders All Day IPA

The beer you've been waiting for. Keeps your taste satisfied while keeping your senses sharp. An all-day IPA naturally brewed with a complex array of malts, grains and hops. Balanced for optimal aromatics and a clean finish. The perfect reward for an honest day's work and the ultimate companion to celebrate life's simple pleasures.


Great Lakes

Rally Drum Red Ale

With a tip of the cap to Tribe superfan and bleacher seat percussionist John Adams, our Red Ale fields a double header of bitter hop and roasted malt flavors.

Flavor Citrusy and piney all-American hops wind up and deliver the pitch to cleanup hitter dry roasted malt

Crisp weiss beer with natural lemonade flavor

Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy

A unique take on Franz Kugler's original Munich tavern tradition. Leinenkugel's Summer Shandy is our traditional weiss beer with refreshing natural lemonade flavor that makes it the perfect summer beer. As we like to say, it's fresh-squeezed Wisconsin-brewed beer.

Summer Shandy won a Silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival in the Fruit Wheat Beer category.

Brew Kettle



A hop forward IPA without the bite! Big fruity / citrus flavor and aroma with the addition of the spicy character of rye malt!


Portside Brewery

Mayo Irish Red Ale

An Irish-style red ale with strong notes of crystal malt is a more traditional red ale than our previous hoppy Riptide Red. This brew pays tribute to our friends of West Mayo Brewery in Cleveland's Irish sister city.s


Tröegs DreamWeaver Wheat

This beer is a very nice hefeweizen. The aroma is full of fruit, pepper and cloves. The flavor is wheat, cloves and fruit and is very nice. The beer is a slightly murky golden color with a smooth texture. a very good beer, highly recommended.

Platform Beer Co.

New Cleveland Palesner

This Pilsner/Pale Ale Hybrid is a clear straw color with a crisp German malt body and refreshing Noble hop finish with floral and herbal aromas. Can design done in collaboration with CLE Clothing Company


Angry Orchard Crisp Apple Cider

This crisp and refreshing cider mixes the sweetness of the apples with a subtle dryness for a balanced cider taste. The fresh apple aroma and slightly sweet, ripe apple flavor make this cider hard to resist.


Fat Heads Bumble Berry Honey Blueberry Ale




Brewed with fresh harvested spring honey stolen from some very angry bees (we have the welts to prove it) and infused with fresh blueberries. Creating a light, refreshing ale with a nice blueberry aroma, crackery malt flavors, a hint of sweetness and a refreshing blueberry finish. Get yo buzz on!

Goodwood Louisville Lager

Goodwood Louisville Lager is the first and only beer brewed with 100% Kentucky-grown grains. And, in a tip of the cap to our Slugger-making neighbors downtown, white ash – common in baseball bats – is used to enhance brewing. This results in a light-bodied, perfectly balanced lager with a sweet finish delivered by those Kentucky grains.

Breckenridge Brewery

Vanilla Porter

Deep in the jungles of Papua New Guinea and Madagascar grows the perfect ingredient for an extraordinary Porter brewed in Colorado. Breckenridge Brewery's Vanilla Porter. An ale that has all the chocolate and roasted nut flavor of a classic Porter, with an enigmatic surprise thrown in for good measure.

Flying Dog Brewery

Raging Bitch Belgian-Style IPA

The color is a pretty orange-amber with a thick, creamy milk white head and lacing. The smell is fruity and hoppy but with a noticeable sweetness. This one starts with some sweetness: toffee, vanilla, and some sweet fruitiness, which quickly gives way to cloves, citrus, and a hoppy pine bitterness. This ale is well carbonated and it masks its 8.30 ABV quite well. Overall, it's an excellent example of a Belgian-style IPA; enough sweetness to make it interesting and refreshing.

Samuel Adams

Cold Snap

White Ale       

Stirring from the haze of winter, this refreshing unfiltered White Ale awakens its smooth wheat with the bright snap of spring spices. From the subtle sweetness of orange peel and plum to the peppery bite of fresh ground coriander, the blend of spices creates just the right refreshing kick to signal that spring is on its way.


Young's Double Chocolate Stout

The taste is a mix of Hershey/milk

chocolate, roasted

grain, light bitter coffee roast, and vanilla



A classic. Mainly

roasted malt, with a

touch of cream and

milk to it



The paradox of our

time in history is that

we have taller

buildings but shorter tempers, wider freeways,but narrower viewpoints. We spend more, but have less.

We buy more, but

enjoy less.

We have bigger

houses and smaller families, more conveniences, but less time. We have more degrees but less

sense, more

knowledge, but

less judgment, more experts, yet more problems, more

medicine, but less wellness.

We drink too much, smoke too much,

spend too recklessly, laugh too little,drive

too fast, get too angry, stay up too late, get up too tired, read too little, watch TV too much,

and pray too seldom.


have multiplied our possessions, but

reduced our values.

We talk too much, love too seldom, and hate

too often. We've

learned how to make a living, but not a life.

We've added years

to life not life to years.

We've been all the

way to the moon and back, but have trouble crossing the street to meet a new neighbor.

We conquered outer space but not inner space.

We've done larger

things, but not better things. We've cleaned

up the air, but polluted

the soul. We've conquered the atom,

but not our prejudice.

We write more, but

learn less. We plan

more, but accomplish less. We've learned to rush, but not to wait.

We build more

computers to hold

more information, to produce more copies

than ever, but we communicate less and less.

These are the times of fast foods and slow digestion, big men and small character, steep profits and shallow relationships. These

are the days of two incomes but more

divorce, fancier

houses, but broken homes.

These are days of

quick trips, disposable diapers, throwaway orality, one night

stands, overweight bodies, and pills that

do everything from

cheer, to quiet, to kill.

It is a time when there

is much in the

showroom window and nothing in the

stockroom. A time

when technology can bring this letter to you, and a time when you

can choose either to share this insight, or to just hit 'delete'.

Remember, spend

some time with your

loved ones, because

they are not going to

be around forever.

Remember, say a kind word to someone, who looks up to you in awe, because that little

person soon will grow

up and leave your side. Remember, to give a warm hug to the one

next to you, because

that is the only

treasure you can give

with your heart and it doesn't cost a cent.

Remember, to say,

"I love you" to your

partner and your loved ones, but most of all

mean it. A kiss and an embrace will mend hurt when it comes from

deep inside of you.Remember to hold hands and cherish the moment for someday

that person will not be there again.

Give time to love, give time to speak and give time to share the

precious thoughts in

your mind.

CLE-Life Long Original Acoustic Troubadour

Michael McDonald

and Friends

Michael McDonald's music delivers you into your favorite easy chair with an epic novel that you can't put down. Tales of love, loss, heroes and losers unfold in a musical journey that is compelling and filled with the range of the human experience. You can expect to hear toe tappin' blues alongside heartfelt ballads, brilliant original compositions mixed with covers by America's finest songwriters. His rich voice and sweet guitar playing will draw you into his world of poetic musical storytelling.

A New York state native now residing in Cleveland, Ohio, Michael McDonald's writing and performing career began early. As a teenager, he hit the road with a guitar and a knapsack. Along the way he became a community organizer and is still deeply immersed in working on the issues that shape our daily lives, which has also helped shape the the signature songwriting and guitar styling that we hear today.

Michael's moving performances leave audiences asking for more. The late Fred Dolan, long time radio host on WJCU, said “Michael's songs on the human condition are on an elevated poetic level…This is music that deserves to be heard.”

Michael is currently working on putting out the first recorded collection of his songs.

“Michael McDonald's innate good spirit streams through his rich voice and lush guitar strokes. His lyrics put me in the mood of shared stories and dusty roads traveled in the company of good friends.” 

             -  Susan Weber, award-winning songwriter and poet-rocker.

“Michael's songs on the human condition are on an elevated, poetic level—delivered in a voice that is reminiscent of Tom Rush...This is music that deserves to be heard.”

- Fred Dolan, host of “Visiting The Folks” on WJCU-FM

Texas most revered and critically acclaimed blues/roots artists. Grammy nominated, singer, songwriter, harmonica player, drummer and Ambassador of East Texas roadhouse soul

Randy Mcallister

"When you listen to him you are listening to the best America has to offer. This man is the master of Americana."- Rootstime Magazine

He's been flying in the face of convention his whole career. No smoke, no mirrors, no choreography, no industry machines. One of the most versatile bluesmen in Texas, Randy plays driving drums and world-class harmonica, writes incredible songs and sings like no one else.

Raised in the small Texas town of Novice, McAllister is a 5th generation Texan, whose father was both a fireman and musician. His father was a drummer in a band called, "The Flames." At a very young age, Randy followed in his father's footsteps. He began to take up drumming, but the drums were just the beginning for Randy. McAllister found the harmonica in his early 20's while stationed in Massachusetts as a member of the U.S. Air Force. Taking cues from Blues Legend "Earring George" Mayweather, a Boston resident and harmonica master, McAllister moved back to Texas in 1992, a strong, skillful harp player who was establishing his vocal and songwriting skills. In 1997 Randy signed with JSP Records. He released 3 highly acclaimed CD's with the label. Throughout the proceeding years Randy has gone on to record with Severn Records and Reaction Records. To date he has 13 releases to his credit.

Roustabout, maverick, spiritual, gritty, amazing, genius, wild, bad-ass, soulful... These are some of the words used to describe this Texas bonafide blue blood. A much revered, singer, songwriter, harmonica player and drummer. East Texas roadhouse soul by one of America's true blues/roots originals

Norman Nardini

Uncrowned King of Rock-n-Roll from Pittsfield Pennsyltucky

As bass player for the 1970's Pittsburgh rock n' roll band, Diamond Reo, Norman Nardini got his career started. After a very brief stay at Berklee School Of Music and more than a few special moments….while still in high school he rented his Hammond B-3 organ and roadied for Billy Preston and Sly and the Family Stone when they came to town…..was hired to play guitar and keys in fake versions of The Sonics and The Cherry People…………backed up Little Anthony and the Imperials, The Detroit Emeralds, and The Manhattans in pickup bands…..played guitar behind Big Mama Thorton and George Harmonica Smith at The Jazz Workshop in Boston Mass. At Fox studio he had the opportunity to play on recordings by Jimmy Beaumont and the Skyliners, Lou Christy, Terry Bradshaw……Nardini played bass on “The Pennsylvania Polka” Steeler fight song. After doing an arrangement of “Dancing In The Street” that got picked up by RCA he did an arrangement of Marvin Gaye's “Ain't That Peculiar” that brought an album deal with Big Tree Records that got Diamond Reo started. With a single on the charts The Diamonds appeared on Dick Clark's American Bandstand and did shows with Aerosmith, Rush, Ted Nugent, Kansas, Canned Heat, Blue Oyster Cult……they opened up for Kiss at Cobo Hall in Detroit the night they recorded Kiss Alive. Dirty Diamonds, they're second release was on the Buddah label and was produced by Adrian Barber who had done Aerosmith's first LP……although it didn't do so well at the time, Dirty Diamonds is currently being re-released on Rock Candy Records and is considered to be a classic piece of work……Nardini produced Ruff Cuts The Diamonds third and final LP. Norman Nardini and the Tigers started tearin' up rock n' roll shows in 1979 opening shows for bands like The Romantics, Joan Jett, and Beaver Brown. In the fall of 1980 The Tigers played Asbury Park's Fast Lane and opened the show for The Rest, one of Jon Bon Jovi's early bands, he and Jon remain friends to this day. Jon had Nardini open his 2011 performance at Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center. Recorded at Cleveland's legendary Agora Nightclub, Eat n' Alive, which received a 4 star review from Rolling Stone Magazine was released in '81 and kept The Tigers on the road constantly. CBS released Norman Nardini and the Tigers in '83, ole buddy Jon Bon sang BG vocals. With the Tigers broken up, Nardini did one more release with CBS, Love Dog, which featured Rick Derringer, Dr John, and Paul Shaffer and hit in '86 and was followed by a tour with The Radiators. A tour of Germany as opening act for The Blues Brothers came about because “Smoke Two Joints”, the single off the Circumstantial LP, This Ole Train was hitting the airways just after the Berlin wall came down and folks were exercising their freedom to rock and smoke. Two more LP's on Circumstantial followed, 1993's Breakdown In Paradise and 95's It's Alive.

A highly talented, underground group from Wheeling West Virginia, The Brett Cain Band, worked with Nardini to create some legendary music in the late 90's that resulted in their LP, Rise. As leader of The Pittsburgh Blues Allstars, Nardini has led their performance at the Pittsburgh Blues Festival for the last 13 years, shows that have featured the best of the ‘burg Shari Richards, Billy Price, Gary Beloma, Kenny Blake Mark Stutso, and Jill West. The late great Glenn Pavone played his last show with The Allstars at the Blues Fest.

The Redemption LP, which featured new arrangements of his older tunes kept Nardini and his band busy playing week in and week out just like they always had done. Opening slots in front of acts like Johnny Winter, Peter Wolf, Pete Best, Jimmy Thackery and the Drivers, Tommy Castro, and Bernard Allison, John Eddy, and Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes helped to keep the Pittsburgh rocker at the top of his game.

The Nardini wrote and produced Rock My Soul LP in 2007 by singer-drummer Mark Stutso came as the result of Nardini hearing this West Virginian sing with Jimmy Thackery's Drivers. In 2010 Stutso sang lead on the Nardini produced JJ Burner LP, Roll On that also featured monster player Warren King on lead guitar.

Bone A Fide was 2011's Norman Nardini release that reached a new hi level for this relentless musical force. Most artist's that have been around as long as Nardini have long since done their best work, not so in the case of Pittsburgh's uncrowned king of rock n' roll.

In 2012 The Nighthawks, Washington DC's best known and longest running blues band included 3 of Nardini's songs on their Damn Good Time Release.

As 2013 is coming to an end, Norman Nardini says that he's just getting started. With a seemingly endless string of exciting new songs and a guitar style that gets stronger as the years roll by Nardini says, “bring out the rest n' let me put 'em to the test n' we'll see who's good rockin' n' who's just talking”.

Southern-flavored psychedelic swampy groove music from Jacksonville FLA


“Daryl Hance, a native of the upper swamps of Florida, has an innate and undeniable groove, built on deep south drawling guitar grooves bordering  on trance-adelic.” Reed Turchi - Devil Down Records

"Seated onstage all those years in JJ Grey and Mofro, one might have missed what a six-string monster Daryl Hance is, but there's no mistaking how  he's right in line with contemporaries like The Black Keys' Dan Auerbach and North Mississippi Allstars/Black Crowes man Luther Dickinson. There's something of John Fogerty to the whole package actually. It's Southern rock with a psychedelic lover man's twist, for anyone who likes it humid and  right in the pocket. ” Dirty Impound - Hey Shredder

With Wild Blue Iris , out May 6 2016 on Devil Down Records, Daryl Hance returns with another dusty slab of Southern-flavore d psychedelic swampy groove music with enough hearty si des to satisfy most anyone whose appetite consists of pre-197 5 or so funk and blues-inspired rock and roll music fortified with searing bluesy guitars, fuzzy super-fat vintage tones, heaps of bottom-end, and transcendental songs high on life, hope , fun, love, and living. Wild Blue Iris , the third full-length album from the Jacksonville, Florida singer/guitarist, is a burner of heaping pro portions best ingested with your beverage of choice, and a taste of so me of your finest herbal-essence. The added company of a few friendly folks, some lovely ladies, and a can-do attitude could only help make things here more enjoyable. Its tone is a vibe h arkening back to the days of the magic created in the mid/late 196 0s through the early to mid 1970s, music drenched in blue s and funk, played with a heart- on -your-sleeve spirit no-nonsense rock and roll attitude of good times and great songs. At just o ver 48 minutes in length, the deal here is simply start at the front of the album, play through to the end, then repeat as deemed n ecessary and share. For optimum results, play it really loud w ith lots of low-end as this music is created and designed to be l istened to at a volume where you can feel the bottom and experience it fully! Hance on Wild Blue Iris ... “ The Florida Wild Blue Iris is a wildflower that grows all around my yard in Northeast Florida. It opens up in the morni ng, stays open for a few hours, then closes back. I had payed li ttle attention to this pretty little flower, only knowing of its existenc e in passing until a short while ago when I did a random post on the internet with an attached photo of this pretty little “ weed ” as the subject of my post. Someone said it was known as a Florida Wild Blue Iris, and I thought to myself, “ wow, didn ' t even know it ” . That got me wondering about all the other things that exist in plain sight that go largely unnoticed that I ' d maybe paid little attention to except in passing. The yard was full of those kinds of things . It was a waking up and smelling of the flowers for the first tim e moment on things that go virtually unnoticed right under my nose, and ended up being a good idea for an album title that I really li ked. I broke out the camera and got some shots from around the yard and started messing around with photos and it all fell togeth er rather quickly. It seemed to work very well with the material a nd kind of culminated on the album ' s finale, the short instrumental title track “ Wild Blue Iris ” , with the slide guitar running through it sounding like a little bee buzzing around amongst some flowers on a warm spring day getting his bee thing on. It also resonate d very well lyrically on songs like “ Those Vibrations ” with, “ when the sun is shining and the birds are singing from the treetops of th e world, just laugh and greet it with all you're feeling get your wings out in the air" or on the song “ With The Tide ” with, “ a rolling with the tide, and I'm gonna have a good time". All about gra bbing you a big ol ' slice of life, smelling the flowers, and enjoying th e world around you. Or at least staying aware of it as much as you can be aware of it at any given moment with minimal distract ion. Not exactly an easy feat in this “ modern ” society pandora ' s box of endless distractions at the tips of your everything, av ailable 24/7/365 where everything in existence is of the utmo st importance requiring 100% of your immediate attention to every little detail of anything that comes across your radar. Sometimes you just gotta drop it all, wake up, and do yourself a huge favor by taking some moments to look around you and smelling al l the flowers! ” Daryl Hance will be hitting the road hard in support of Wild Blue Iris with his live band Daryl Hance Powermuse, a not to b e missed high-octane power-packed punch of deeply hypnotic groo ves, good times, and a deep catalog of great songs readily available for everyone to dig in on, and groove out to!

Alternative Rock from London, United Kingdom

Mike Marlin

& The Melomaniacs

Former child prodigy defeats mid-life crisis to make brilliant, brooding rock record. Here's a great, growling new rock voice, full of the perviness of Leonard Cohen, the bite of Luke Haines, and the chops of The Psychedelic Furs' Richard Butler. Mike Marlin also has a biography to startle the horses. Blinded in one eye at 4, he was a teenage prodigy at Oxford before dropping out; he later invented stock market computer technology. On paper, this 51-year-old's new career suggest mid-life crisis in excelsis, but on record, he's deliciously persuasive. Songs about serial killers, sex and death feel like lost late ‘70s classics, the guitars either sharpened up post-punkishly (War To Begin) or given room to brood in dimly-lit bars (Amazing). Romantic lyrics about blue eyes and a girl in “that dress” somehow sidestep cliché too, because the voice behind them yanks you in. Innocence be damned – it's time to enjoy experience.

Folk / Indie / Super Holy Fantastic from Covington, KY


"Wonky Tonk, Poole's Country-music alter ego who has been compared to Lucinda Williams and Lydia Loveless, takes a stage like an occupying army, storming in with purpose, confidence and conviction." Cini-City Beat

" “Bulleit” comes at you with the directness of Loretta Lynn and Wanda Jackson while still being fresh like Nikki Lane. "

"Wonky Tonk, Poole's Country-music alter ego who has been compared to Lucinda Williams and Lydia Loveless, takes a stage like an occupying army, storming in with purpose, confidence and conviction."

Often compared to Jenny Lewis or Iris Dement, Wonky Tonk sings in a slightly naive country form with hints of Modest Mouse, The Pixies and Loretta Lynn. Wonky Tonk has played alongside Jessica Lea Mayfield, Barnaby Bright, TuneYards, David Mayfield Parade, Langhorne Slim, Paleface, Sunset Rubdown and Southern Culture on the Skids. Her debut album "Stuff We Leave Behind" is out now www.wonkytonkmusic.com

The nitty gritty:

Jasmine Lorraine “Wonky Tonk” Poole grew up in the hard scrabble portion of the American heartland. Kentucky, to be precise. Her world of loss and longing is familiar terrain for lovers of country, bluegrass and folk music but, just as Kentucky can be viewed as a bridge between north and south, Wonk's music blends elements of Indie/Alternative rock with old school country. It's hard to separate the wonk from the tonk. Nor should you try.

Wonk's influences, John Prine, Guy Clark, Modest Mouse and Loretta Lynn among them (especially Loretta), are apparent but her music is not derivative. Loretta, Skeeter Davis, Iris Dement and Jenny Lewis come to mind but none of her comparables quite pin her down. Wonk is her own cowgirl. “Cowgirls get up in the morning, decide what to do and do it”, she was told as a child. Fiercely independent but naturally shy Jasmine uses her alter ego and blue cowgirl boots to deal with the notion of impossibly cruel but equally exhilarating existence.

One byproduct of youthful innocence is a constant disappointing, bewildering surprise:

You used to call me baby
You used to call me darlin'
Now you don't call me at all

Another is vulnerability and manipulability:

In the greasy ballroom
You whispered in my ear
Darlin' life is a gamble, romance a drug
The whole world is dancin'
Won't you give in and love

Her eleven song debut release Stuff We Leave Behind deals with the necessity of moving on at critical points in your life. Stuff that once seemed important must be cast aside, ex-lovers relegated to the shadows. “Heartbreak makes the jukebox play”, she was once told. Her song titles reflect her wandering spirit and a fascination with time and place. “Cleveland." “Denmark." “Tennessee." “Montague Road." A veteran troubadour at such a tender age, Wonk has toured Europe with the same restless drive as her native Northern Kentucky.

Tom Robbins told us that even Cowgirls Get the Blues but all is not remorse and regret. Jangly sunshine pops through the clouds unexpectedly, such as in “Parkland Avenue” (arguably the best track). Though softly. Without the glare.

Wonk's lyrics are worth a read even without the music. The album tracks her evolution as an artist and a person. The gravel, rutted road to an emerging wisdom.

Tennessee didn't you hear
Money's not real and neither is fear

Pay attention to Wonk. Not just because she is talented and beautiful. Pay attention because she has an important purpose. To help you remember. To help you forget. Or to help you remember why you chose to forget.

Nick and the Ovorols

Nick and the Ovorols kicked off 2013 in style with a new record titled Telegraph Taboo and a Gulf Coast tour with stops in N ... ashville, TN. They have since made this a routine. They continue to build their following playing around Chicago and since that first tour in 2013, they've been on the road every month or two. Making this coming January a 2-year milestone of steady touring for the band. Last year (2014) they supported the late great Johnny Winter at Bell's Brewery in Kalamazoo, MI, and Grammy winners Rebirth Brass Band at The Howlin' Wolf in New Orleans. Aside from critical acclaim on their 2013 indie record release, they continue to gain recognition and are slowly and consistently building their following and industry network. They realize that bringing their music to as many people as they would like requires dedication, hard work and perseverance. But the journey doesn't have to be an arduous means to an end and the band makes a conscious effort to enjoy the journey thru bringing fiery, energetic, and emotional performances to their audiences.

Reggae 'n' Roll from La Pincoya, Santiago, Chile

Without a doubt, Gondwana is the most prestigious, solid band of the Hispanic world. With a constant movement across the continent and a myriad of vibrant shows, the band continues to present a bullet-proof repertoire. In addition, the band is the most internationally known Chilean band and continues to move forward with more and more energy in a daily basis.
Formed in 1987, the band maintains an acclaimed trajectory which includes multiplatinum albums and numerous presentations in the most successful and well- known festivals across America (as an example of their massive impact across the continent, the band has performed in Reggae on the River in California, Rock al Parque in Bogotá, Vive Latino in Mexico, Pepsi Music in Buenos Aires, Cosquin Rock in Cordoba, Quito Fest in Ecuador and various appearances in the prestigious Festival de Vina del Mar in Chile).
A surprising aspect of Gondwana is their notable digital activity track record as demonstrated by their ever-growing YouTube fan-base (over 40 million views) and an average of 30,000 monthly visitors access the band's official webpage. This can be attributed to a rarely witnessed romance between the band and its fans. The fact that the band maintains such incredible web fan base demonstrates what a massive impact the band has in order to reach millions of young hearts across the world, especially considering that the band has lacked the support from prominent producers or the support of a music label during recent years.
After editing their first CD and DVD live set, recorded in Buenos Aires in 2010, Gondwana began 2011 ready to further increase their already busy agenda.
At the beginning of the year the band released their first official best-of (with the active participation of the band). The album is titled Pincoya Calipso, edited by Sony Music, in which 17 songs are compiled from the band's catalog along with a re mastered sound and adding two new songs. These two songs are an anticipation of their new studio album which is set to be released in August.
After touring through various Chilean cities, Buenos Aires, Montevideo and Caracas, the band began to prepare and record their upcoming new album within their own studios and the incorporation of their new lead singer, MC Jona, who has already recorded the vocals of two songs that will form part of a Bob Marley Tribute album which Sello Pop Art will soon release within the continent.
Since 1997 until today, the band has finished 5 studio albums, a dub album and three best-of’s; all of these were released in the USA as well. Their discography has been published across the globe through the specialized record company, RAS Records; to this date, the band has surpassed the 450,000 mark for sold records. They’ve also had 9 platinum albums in Chile and a history of over 800 concerts.
Songs such as Sentimiento Original, Nuestros Suenos, Chainga Langa, Armonia de Amor, Antonia, Verde Amarillo y Rojo, and Dulce Amor have already become classics that have not just withstand the test of time, but have also broken musical boundaries attributed to their shows in 17 different countries. During the past three years, the reformulated nine-member band has visited numerous international stages. Countries in Central America, Latin America and Europe have witnessed their tremendous talent; they have become in the band with the highest international activity within Chile. Gondwana is one of the bands that heads the Latin Reggae movement, along with Los Cafres and Cultura Profetica. The three bands shared the same stage in nearly 10 separate occasions.

Cuando The Police debutó en el Festival de Viña del Mar (febrero de 1982), en una pequeña y combativa población del norte de Santiago, La Pincoya, un joven Locks Labbe sorprendido e influenciado por esa actuación tomó la decisión que cambiaría el destino de su vida y la de muchos: fundar una banda, que esa banda llegue a ese mismo escenario y tocar el bajo. Todas esos deseos se cumplieron: en 1987 fundó GONDWANA, el primer grupo de reggae de Chile y uno de los primeros en Sudamérica. Con el paso del tiempo, también llegó al escenario mayor de la música chilena, actuando tres veces en el Festival del Viña Del Mar, siendo el bajista y compositor de muchas de las canciones de la banda.

El reclutamiento de los demás integrantes fue lento y nada fácil, comprando instrumentos de a poco y tocando donde se podía. La sorpresa vino cuando los primeros GONDWANA comenzaron a darse cuenta de que lo que hacían gustaba, y mucho, logrando desde el comienzo tener una creciente y fiel cantidad de seguidores.

Luego se mudaron al bohemio Barrio Bellavista, donde la escena musical tenía su epicentro. Allí comenzó la expansión del prestigio y la convocatoria de los cada vez menos amateurs GONDWANA. Llegaron los escenarios más grandes, incluso abriendo a Los Pericos en una aplaudida actuación en el Teatro Caupolicán en 1994. Se grabaron cuatro canciones como Demo en los estudios Anachena, de los hermanos Frugone, y luego llegó el primer contrato discográfico con BMG. El debut no pudo ser mejor, disco multiplatino, con varios singles en el Top 10 radial, tónica que se mantuvo para los discos posteriores.

A punto de cumplir 25 años de historia, GONDWANA comienza los festejos con su sexto álbum de estudio. Toda la historia de Gondwana ha sido cruzada por una fuerza de voluntad que ha sabido atravesar todas las adversidades imaginables: barrios marginales, represión y oscuridad en plena dictadura fueron el caldo de cultivo inicial. La falta de dinero y oportunidades forjaron letras concientes y ganas de salir de la oscuridad por partes iguales.

Una vez ya establecidos como la primera banda de reggae el camino nunca dejó de ser ascendente. 10 años en el underground les dieron temple y coherencia. Luego, en 1997, llegaron los discos de Oro y Platino, los singles arrasando las radios de todo Chile y las giras multitudinarias, destacando 3 Festivales de Viña del Mar y un Estadio Nacional con 60.000 personas vibrando al unísono.

El despegue internacional llegó en el 2000 y ha sido una constante fuente de alegrías absolutamente inéditas en el panorama musical chileno. Las giras continentales no han parado de crecer, de la mano de un fanatismo que no conoce fronteras. A la par de la refundación del negocio musical, GONDWANA ha liderado una apabullante actividad en las redes sociales, con récords en YouTube, Facebook y demás sitios en donde es el Fan el que manda y no un mercado musical cada vez más alejado del público.

Ya para el final de 2011, se edita “Revolución” un álbum maduro y potente que se convirtió en un éxito.

Actualmente se encuentran presentando su último disco “Reggae & Roll”, séptimo álbum de estudio, octavo contando el CD+DVD grabado en Buenos Aires.

El disco cuenta con las colaboraciones destacadas de Boris Bilbraut de Cultura Profética, Celsa Mel Gowland, Daniel Sais (ex tecladista de Soda Stereo), Tomás Pearson de Los Cafres, entre varios otros y se edita simultaneamente en Chile, Argentina y USA. Las nuevas canciones incluyen dos covers de dos bandas fundamentales en la historia del rock argentino: “El Rito”, de Soda Stereo y “Qué Ves” Divididos.

The National Parks

The National Parks formed in Provo, Utah in early 2013. Later that year they released their first album, Young, and saw it climb to #13 on the iTunes singer/songwriter chart. The success of that album, along with additional chart success from their January 2014 standalone single, “As We Ran,” helped fuel touring across much of the United States through 2014-2015. In August of 2015 The National Parks released, Until I Live, their second full-length album, and once again watched their music climb charts – iTunes' Pop Chart and even Billboard's Heatseekers Chart. In April 2016, “Monsters of the North,” a lead single from Until I Live was announced as a finalist in the International Songwriting Competition – one of the world's premiere songwriting competitions. The band continues to tour through 2016, now having played in 50+ cities in 17 different states, including performances at SXSW, CMJ Music Marathon, Make Music Pasadena and Canadian Music Week.

Skyla Burrell Band

The Skyla Burrell Band is a full time, hardworking traveling blues band. With cofounder Mark Tomlinson on lead guitar and Skyla Burrell on vocals/lead guitar, the band's live show consists of all original high energy electric blues.

Called “one of the most smokin' blues bands in the US” , the band's ten year history bears out in its fiery, vibrant live performances. Skyla Burrell's voice not only shines, but her guitar work also cuts through. Music Monthly magazine said "Many women in the blues have great voices and have made their careers singing the blues, but not too many can double it up, slice it, dice it and sacrifice it on the best Fender has to offer like Skyla can."

Supporting their acclaimed fifth and latest CD release, “Blues Scars”, Skyla and company deliver unpretentious, self described "hard drivin' blues" in which strength and understatement unite in an easy, fluid balance without sucking up to rock.

California Classic ROCK

Rio Bravo

Meet Rio Bravo.  If our name isn't an immediate indication of our love for the classics, then our music definitely is.  We are a classic rock band with a twist.  Although based in Burbank, California - Rio Bravo has grown a fan base on the west coast and east coast with a song list of not only the popular hits from the 60's and 70's, but also the surprising hits.  A band of six extremely skilled musicians and vocalists, we pride ourselves in playing the songs that other bands wouldn't dare attempt.  From the Beatles to Zeppelin, we have an immense and eclectic list of songs, which we continue to populate weekly.  It is our goal to stay fresh and exciting whether you are seeing us for the first time or the 100th time.  There is always something new.

Individually, we are Tony, Carl, Rick, Chuck, Art, and Erica, but together we are Rio Bravo, not just a band, an experience.
Rio Bravo specializes in covers of classic rock 1-hit-wonders, "B sides" of hit singles and ambitious epics that very few (i ... n some cases the original artists themselves!) have played live. Influences and favorite bands include The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Chicago Blues, British Invasion, Elton John, Billy Joel, Leon Russell, Pink Floyd, Bowie, Queen, Creedence, Neil Young and Gram Parsons.
