Flying Dog Número Uno Mexican Lager


Flaked maize makes up one third of the malt bill and highlights the distinctive corn and cracker flavor traditionally found in Mexican lagers. Agave is added at the end of the boil and the lime peel post-fermentation to impart a distinct, zesty character and a crisp, clean finish


Great Lakes

Steady Rollin' Session IPA

Refreshing and light-bodied with bright grapefruit and passionfruit aromas. Brewed with Harrington 2-Row Base Malt, Crystal 45 Malt, Mosaic Hops

A vibrant landscape of tropical, fruity Mosaic hop aromas and smooth sailing malt flavors

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.

WNY Blues Society's "Muddy Waters Award: Artist of the Year

Buffalo Music Awards:.......

Top Blues Guitarist

Top Blues Vocalist

Top Blues/Crossover Blues Band

Artvoice Best Blues Act

Tommy Z

Fans of electric blues guitar, who love SRV, Jimmie Vaughan, BB King, Buddy Guy, Otis Rush, Jimi Hendrix etc. will love the ... Tommy Z style, who has blended the styles of so many greats together. But add to that a vocalist of range, with funk, soul, jazz, rock and R&B all part of the musical ingredients in his original songs.

Tommy Z is a contemporary blues guitarist/singer/songwriter/producer who has been described as a "blues treasure" by legenda ... ry 97 Rock/WBFO DJ Jim Santella (WBFO), and "one of WNY's best kept secrets" by Sarah French, Blues Matters Magazine. Though he is a guitar-driven electric blues-based stylist onstage, in the studio Tommy composes a variety of music. So while well experienced and studied in traditional blues, jazz and rock styles, Tommy is an artist who puts that soulful blues feeling into all the different styles he plays. As a result he's been been recognized with numerous awards over the years, including being voted Top Blues Vocalist in Western New York 2003/2004/2006, Top Blues Guitarist 1993, 1994, 1995, 1997, 2004, 2005, 2006 and his groups have won the Top Blues/Crossover Blues Band categories 1994, 2005, 2006, and was honored with the Muddy Waters Award for "Artist of the Year" by the Blues Society of WNY in 2004. In 2007 Tommy was inducted into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame, recognizing him alongside some of the best talent to ever come out of WNY (and also making him ineligible for any more music awards!). He has had the opportunity to perform with/or co-bill with some of the worlds' greatest artists in the blues/rock genre including: B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Johnny Winter, The Fabulous Thunderbirds, Jeff Healey, Colin James, Roomful of Blues, Blues Traveler, Derek Trucks, Joe Bonamassa, Robert Randolph, Peter Frampton and many more including a tour backing up Grammy-winning blues legend Pinetop Perkins (Muddy Waters Band).

The son of a Vietnam-era veteran, he has been bringing a taste of home to US troops overseas since 2003 with blues-based concert tours in Iraq, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, United Arab Emirates, Bahrain, Qatar, Japan, South Korea, Djibouti, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Egypt, Turkey, Guam, Alaska and other distant locales on behalf of USO/AFE. Rolling Stone Magazine called some of these locations, "The most dangerous gigs on Earth." Tommy contributed guitar tracks to Deep Purple vocalist Ian Gillan's CD on Immergent called Gillan's Inn, on the track "When A Blind Man Cries," which also featured blues-rock legend Jeff Healey. He also appears on rocker Michael Lee Jackson's 2006 Immergent release, "In a Heartbeat." In 2006 a critically acclaimed CD entitled Universal Love was produced with Nick Blagona (BeeGees, Chicago, Police), and it was described as "soul-rockin' blues" by Bob Putignano, NYC Blues Society President and Sounds of Blue DJ (WFDU), "awesome" by Bob Silvestri, Best of WNY, and "should feature high on your list of 'new' acts to investigate" Mick Rainsford, Blues in Britain Magazine.

In addition to his performance schedule, Tommy is a Canisius College graduate, guitar teacher, and composer/producer for Film, TV, Sports, etc. His most recent credits include writing the victory song for the St. Louis Blues (NHL), Red Hot Chili Peppers Biography, Ryan and Sean's Not So Excellent Adventure, Last Comic Standing (NBC), TLC's Stager Invasion, Animal Planet's Swamp Wars (main title), Bravo's Chef Roble and Co., Discovery Channel's Biker Live and others.

From Asbury Park, New Jersey

Keith Kenny

If the audience at a Keith Kenny show were to close their eyes for the performance they would swear that there was a full ba ... nd on stage. The audience, however, is too busy dancing to the one-man acts layered guitar riffs, foot stomping percussion, and emotionally charged lyrics to even think about looking away. The New Jersey native is able to emulate the sound of a full rock band with his percussive fingerstyle approach to the acoustic guitar and an array of effects pedals. Kenny even customized a vintage red suitcase to use as a kick drum which has appeared with him on stage for nearly a decade of live performances.
His debut appearances at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park paved the way for Kenny's developing one-man band show and led him into the national touring circuit and beyond. During his most recent “Big Red Suitcase Tour” Kenny performed in over 50 U.S. cities from coast to coast and was invited to headline a series of benefit concerts in SE Asia. In recent years he has shared the stage with the likes of Keller Williams, Leon Russell, John Hammond Jr., New Riders of the Purple Sage, The Zen Tricksters and John Kadlecik (Further & Dark Star Orchestra). On his latest studio release “And the Light Came Blaring In…” Kenny captures the essence of his live solo show, with all the guitars, vocals, and foot stomping performed simultaneously. While he has used a band for several previous releases, on this record Kenny relies more on his lone power of compositional grit than his usual fret board grandeur. With an influential voice that lies somewhere between Neil Young and Ben Bridwell, Kenny delivers clear and concise visions of dynamic musical deliverance. Combining a deep dive into tone, originality and believability, he ushers the listener into his brand new living room of roots riddled rock and roll. Never going for the standard attack, he flies far from the 12-bar blues, three-chord rock and Americana stereotype to land some place between a rock and a new place. The album illustrates a highly skilled writer who utilizes the same down-home approach in his music as he does with his day-to-day interactions with others. It's a combination that will continue to see Kenny reach exciting new levels as he helps future fans “see the light” of his musical message.

Live @ Happy Hour


Americana, Rock, Blues from Los Angeles

Sounds Like: Neil Young, The Black Keys, Alabama Shakes, Hank Williams Sr, Robert Johnson

The Deltaz are two brothers - John and Ted Siegel. You can hear the pulse of Mississippi Delta Blues, the harmony of American folk music, and the rumble of retro rock in their sound. Since they were boys they idolized the great American musicians of the 50's, 60's and 70's.

First John picked up a pair of drum sticks, and soon after Ted became infatuated with the local music store's window display guitar. Through vocal harmonization, insightful songwriting, and powerful musicianship, The Deltaz have the unique ability to entertain even the most diverse audiences. Although The Deltaz play music that is unmistakably influenced by the artists of the past, they provide listeners with a new take on some of the greatest American roots music in history.

The Deltaz are constantly writing, rehearsing and recording their music. They perform shows at local Los Angeles rock venues, college campuses, dive bars, street performances, and state parks. Keep an eye out they may be in your neighborhood next!

Real New Orleans FUNK!

In Business

Funk is our Business

Founded in 2012 in funky New Orleans, Louisiana, In Business is an organization of like-minded individuals dedicated to the creation and distribution of one product, and one product only: funk music.

Although our mission is a simple one, we are steadfast in our purpose, bringing only the highest quality funk to our fans—aka consumers of the funk. Of course, high quality funk requires high quality ingredients, including, but not limited to: big fat grooves, tasty guitar licks, piping hot saxophones, spine-tingling vocals, individual musicianship, group dynamics, a sense of humor, and lots of love. Simply put, our original music is crafted from only “the finest shyeeeit.”

Listening to In Business' music can best be described as taking a musical journey—one  with twists and turns, from craggy peaks to blissful meadows (as well as the occasional suspension bridge over rivers of molten lava). Our often irreverent lyrics cover topics both commonplace and fantastical, taking the listener from a visit with a sidewalk vendor selling frozen treats, to the epic adventures of a secret crime-fighting organization (Spoiler alert: that's us.).

And now the funky fruits of our labor are starting to ripen. Our very first album of all original music, Cop Show, is to be released in early 2016, followed by local and regional touring to spread our funky seed. But this is just the beginning. We won't rest until our mission is complete. And the funk just keeps getting stronger.

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.

Blues Hall Of Fame Inductee from Chicago


"Joe is one of our favorite performers at Buddy Guy's Legends" (Buddy's world famous club) "He is Energetic, A Strong Guitarist And Always A Crowd Pleaser." -Buddy Guy

"...MOSS HAD THE AUDIENCE ROCKIN' AND JIVIN' as he moved into the crowd, entertaining them with his own brand of music"
-Chicago Tribune

"He Plays Head And Shoulders Above Contenders!"
-Vintage Guitar Magazine

One fine winter's morning my good friend and owner of Cady's Tavern, Robin Tyo, called to tell me she was having The Joe Moss Band come from Chicago to play at her tavern in Chepachet. “You've got to come check him out,” she said. All of the sudden my Facebook feed was swamped with statuses about Joe Moss. Joe was sitting in with pretty much every distinguished blues musician I knew, which made me realize that I needed to know who this Joe Moss was and what he sounded like.

Now his own band is playing right here in little Rhody and for a limited time. I knew that Joe was going to play at the Murphy's Law blues jam after the Superbowl, and that was well within biking distance. Ben Ricci, who was running the jam, said about Moss' band, “The band has that intense Chicago blues style, and Joe is melodically innovative and unique to form.” I couldn't miss that, so I biked to the blues jam and hung around to ask Joe a few questions.

Katie Lewis, Motif Magazine

PROMISING YOUNG TALENT STILL EXISTS ON THE Chicago blues circuit-at least if you know where to find it. If identifying the Windy City's next generation of blues standouts sounds like an intriguing quest, there's no need to look any further than the Joe Moss Band. The albums title track 'Monster Love," vividly indicates Joe's musical leanings-cool horns, percolating organ, and a funk-stained groove frame Joe's attractive vocal and stinging guitar work. "Need Your Love," "Mad Mad Mad," and "Lost My World" strike thoroughly infectious tempos, their slinky, dance-friendly bass lines recalling the years of onstage experience Moss acquired as one of Buddy Scott's Rib Tips inside fabled South Side joints such as Lee's Unleaded Blues and The Checkerboard Lounge. But when he's in the mood, Joe can grab hold of more traditional fare and wring it for all it's worth. "Love My Baby" swings with horn -fueled impunity. "So Scared" is a straight-out-of-the Delta stomper, and "Train Tracks" closes the set by proving conclusively that Joe doesn't need a band at all to get his point across. Chicago blues aficionados will want to keep a close eye on Joe Moss . The idiom needs all the help it can get as we hurtle into this new millennium with precious few legitimate young blues heroes to anticipate, and he's in a position to make a real contribution.
Bill Dahl --- JOE MOSS, "MONSTER LOVE" (212)

"HARDWORKING CHICAGO BANDLEADER JOE MOSS has come up with a monster Memphis groove, powered by three fine keyboardists, for his sophomore disc on West Dundee's 212 Records. The guitarist-vocalist, a graduate of Scotty & the Rib Tips and the brother of Chicago bluesman Nick Moss, makes a bold statement with these 11 originals and two covers (B.B. King's "Please Love Me" and Billy Myles' "Have You Ever Loved a Woman"). Although lacking somewhat in vocal range, Moss has developed a funky soul-blues sound that's perfectly suited both to his voice and his supporting personnel. "Monster Love" is the work of a skilled craftsman who already knows how to make a fine album, and likely has many more in his future.  3 1/2 STARS"

  Jeff Johnson, Chicago Sun Times

USA - JOE MOSS "Monster Love" 212 Records, 13 tracks, 1:00:45 hrs.

"This is the second release from the Chicago guitarist/singer and his band. A regular at Chicago's House of Blues and Buddy Guy's Legends, Moss is a monster showman hardly ever off a stage. Having secured his break with Buddy Scott he went on to be a sideman to many Chicago's big names, where he got to tour Europe on several occasions. Joe along with his younger brother Nick (Nick Moss & the Flip Tops), are the current young Turks on Chi-town's blues circuit who base their sound on a rich 50's Blues sound. Joe has a love for the "We Three Kings" B.B, Albert, & Freddie, with the albums two covers coming from Freddie & B.B. King, "Have You Ever Loved a Woman" & "Please Love Me". Joe has come up with a great bunch of tunes reminiscent of Johnny "Guitar" Watson, SRV, B.B./Albert & Freddie King, Roy Buchanan and a few West Coast guitarists. If you are jaded by single toned guitar players then no need for an ear syringing, "Monster Love" is at hand. Amongst Joe's soul side there is a smattering of funk also there's some honky-tonk country figures. The only complaint I have is the slightly compressed production sound, though clean enough it doesn't bristle in the same way as a top studio job. Willie "Big Eyes" Smith's son, Kenny Smith plays drums on seven tracks with no less than three keyboard players, and Dez Desormeaux providing all the horns. The band is tight with a big stage kind of sound. Those who have heard Joe's debut album know Joe wrote a song for his wife "Oh Sandra", well it's updated herein adding "03" to the titling, and it's a big rockabilly cum western swing tune. At the time of writing there are no mp3's for the new disc, but as there are samples for his previous on the bands website, then there probably will be by the time you read this - checkout www.joemossband.com. Chicago is still producing Blues talent which is evident from the Moss Bros. - Blues tailoring that's a cut above the rest! .................."

Billy Hutchinson, Blues Matters Magazine UK

"Joe Moss comes from some fine blues stock. His brother is Nick Moss, leader of Chicago blues band The Flip-Tops. Joe is quite a talented singer, writer, and guitarist in his own right, and the release of "Monster Love" oughta bring him national acclaim!! Joe spent his formative years with Buddy Scott's blues band, Scotty and the Rib Tips. (See Alligator Records' "Living Chicago Blues Vol.3" for an introduction to this fine group) After Buddy's passing in 1994, Joe gigged around Chicago until setting out on his own in 1997. Joe's sound is a bit more "groove-oriented" than traditional "Chicago-style" combos, aimed to make people get up and dance! Check out the horn and organ-driven grooves of the title track and "Mad Mad Mad" for some get-on-the-floor boogie music, as well as the neat shuffle that serves as Joe's ode to his wife, "Oh Sandra '03." Joe is in tune with his roots, too. Check out "So Scared" and "Train Tracks," which sound like they came right off Highway 61. Our two favorites are an excellent slow-burnin' "Have You Ever Loved A Woman," and the rollicking, highly-danceable "Please Love Me," with some cool barrelhouse piano from Bill LeClaire backing Joe's stinging, jumping lead and dead-on vocals! If you need proof that good young talent still exists to carry on the torch of the blues, then "don't go no further" than Joe Moss and "Monster Love." Check 'em out and---ENJOY!!

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.

"A melodic, fiery hoedown" from NYC

The Hollows

"A roots-rock band that is capable of melting my face off" ~HELLCAT MEDIA

A roots-rock junkyard ensemble of multi-instrumentalists: a freewheeling hootenanny of a band. With no frontman (or six frontmen) everyone sings and swaps roles, creating a diverse and uniquely blended sound. Their debut LP, Belong to the Land (2011) was called "a monster" (KOOK 93.5 FM) and "a melodic, fiery hoedown" (The Deli Magazine). They quickly followed up with a self-titled EP in 2012 ("A prize peach" - My Old Kentucky Blog) and a 2013 live LP,Neverending Show ("A smorgasbord of musical talent" - The Huffington Post). Their next full-length studio LP was produced by John Siket (Phish, Sonic Youth, Dave Matthews Band) and is due out this spring. A high-octane, unpredictable barn-burner: put on yer' dancin' shoes.

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.

Award Winning American Electric Blues and Soul Harmonicist Singer Songwriter

John Németh

Boise, Idaho is hardly the place anyone would conjure up as a hotbed of soul music.But for John Németh, it's where his love for the genre began—and the starting point for a journey that's taken him from his first gigs fronting a teenaged band to five Blues Music Award nominations in 2013 alone.It's where this preternaturally talented son of a Hungarian immigrant gained his early chops on the harmonica, building on the style of rootsy heroes like Little Walter and Sonny Boy Williamson. Németh's first paid performance came in 1991, when he was hired to perform drinking songs for a pinochle luncheon held by the Catholic Daughters of America before setting his sights on the Boise club scene, where, for nearly a decade, he played seven nights a week at local pubs, taverns, joints, and parties.
After opening a show for Junior Watson, Németh was tapped as tour opener for the guitar great, a gig that took him across the United States, to Scandinavia, and into the recording studio for his 2004 solo debut, Come And Get It, featuring Watson. When Németh's girlfriend decided to relocate to California, he knew he couldn't lose her, so he packed up the house and traveled west. It was an astute move: shortly after his arrival, Németh was signed by Blind Pig Records to a three-album deal. He also earned critical acclaim placing him in, as Nick Cristiano of the Philadelphia Inquirer put it, “a cadre of young and relatively young artists such as James Junter, Eli ‘Paperboy' Reed, and Sharon Jones.”

“I learned a lot living in Oakland and San Francisco,” Németh says, “from recording and performing with Elvin Bishop to hearing Jimmy Hughes perform. Oakland is like a truly southern city, only it's on the west coast. It wasn't until after I arrived that I discovered that so many great songs I love actually originated there.”

In early 2013, Németh traded his life on the west coast to settle down in Memphis, Tennessee. He and Jaki, that girlfriend he followed to California, had married and started a family, and Memphis made sense for multiple reasons: It's centrally located for touring, the cost of living is inexpensive, and the river town is the historical ground zero for American roots music.

“I moved to Memphis because it is the epicenter for soul and blues,” Németh confirms. “The wealth of knowledge runs deep in the instincts of its musicians and its studios.”

The 2000-mile trek south was wild. Németh's 26-foot Budget rental truck broke down in the middle of the night in Flagstaff, Arizona, where he had to unload the entire truck and reload a new one on the side of the road. A scant two days after that, he was in Memphis and, as improbably as it sounds, in the recording studio.

Németh landed in the perfect place: Electraphonic Studio, home of producer and musician Scott Bomar, who composed the film scores for Hustle & Flow and Black Snake Moan and produced Cyndi Lauper's Memphis Blues . Backed by the Bo-Keys, Bomar's group of veteran Memphis performers who made their names backing the likes of Al Green, O.V. Wright, Rufus Thomas, and the Bar-Kays, Németh quickly laid down thirteen tracks that, as he describes it, “live in the style like I live in the style.” The tapes from that session caught the ear of manager Charles Driebe, who took the record to Denby Auble of Blue Corn Music. The Americana/roots music label signed Németh that year, adding him to a roster that boasts the likes of Ruthie Foster, Gurf Morlix, and Steve Forbert.

Memphis Grease, the long-awaited follow up to Németh's fourth solo studio release, 2010's Name The Day! , embodies everything that sets this artist apart from the revivalist pack: it's innovative and unique while epitomizing the absolute best of the genre. It's a deeply forged amalgamation of scorching harmonica-driven blues and sweet blue-eyed soul ala the Box Tops or Roy Head, delivered via two fistfuls of originals and a trio of carefully chosen covers, including Roy Orbison's “Crying,” reinvented here as a slow-burning soul number that matches anything that came out of circa-late 1960s' Muscle Shoals.

The album title itself is evocative of Németh's journey to Memphis. The soul-blues scene he fell into in the Bay Area is historically referred to as “Oakland Grease,” and a pair of Oakland's “greasiest” artists, guitarist Lowell Fulson and pianist Jimmy McCracklin, journeyed south to record two of their best, if often overlooked albums: Fulson's funky psych-blues In A Heavy Bag and McCracklin's soulful High on the Blues. For Németh, Memphis Grease is a natural concept that marries the techniques he honed in the Bay with the intuitiveness that flows between him and the Bo-Keys.

“When it comes to more traditional styles of music, people expect to hear a tribute record. But you can get into a real rut if you're just doing rewrites,” Németh says. “We're creating fresh music here. Our arrangements sound just like they would back then, but what we're doing is so much more innovative.”

With the inter-generational combination of drummer Howard Grimes, guitarist Joe Restivo, Al Gamble on keyboards, producer Scott Bomar on bass, venerable soul vocalist Percy Wiggins singing background, and a killer horn section featuring Marc Franklin, Kirk Smothers, and Art Edmaisten, it's a collaboration that sounds completely effortless. Together, Németh and the Bo-Keys take modern soul from a simmer to a full boil.

The Bo-Keys
Lost in much of the soul revival hype is the fact that many of the originators of soul music are still performing up to their Black Power-era standards. In the early parts of their careers, members of the Bo-Keys performed in B.B. King's orchestra, anchored the Hi Rhythm Section, nailed the unforgettable intro to “Theme From Shaft,” and survived the plane crash that claimed Otis Redding. The Bo-Keys features alumni both of Stax Records and Hi Records, plus younger musicians who've garnered an Emmy award and a Grammy nomination. The Bo-Keys' debut effort The Royal Sessions drew raves, and can still be heard in snippets on National Public Radio broadcasts. Their song “I'm Still in Need,” with Percy Wiggins on vocals, is featured in the new film Grudge Match , starring Robert DeNiro and Sylvester Stallone.

The Bo-Keys include vocalist Percy Wiggins, keyboardist Al Gamble, trumpeter Marc Franklin (Lucero, Solomon Burke, Bobby “Blue” Bland), and saxophonists Kirk Smothers (Buddy Guy, Ike Turner, Cliff Richard), and Art Edmaisten.  On drums is the incomparable Howard Grimes, whose credits include Rufus and Carla Thomas' “Cause I Love You,” O.V. Wright's “Nickel and a Nail,” Ann Peebles' “I Can't Stand the Rain,” and Syl Johnson's “Take Me to the River.”

Bass player Scott Bomar is a founding father of The Bo-Keys, along with the late guitarist Skip Pitts. Bomar's music career began in the 1990s with the instrumental group Impala; the bassist also backed Rufus and Carla Thomas, Rosco Gordon, Eddie Floyd, William Bell, and Motown session guitarist Dennis Coffey. Production-wise, Bomar served an apprenticeship with Willie Mitchell, engineering Al Green's two most recent releases at Mitchell's Royal Studio and working with a variety of musicians, running the gamut from jazz legend Calvin Newborn to punk visionary Jay Reatard. In 2005, Bomar composed the soundtrack for the Academy Award-winning film Hustle and Flow, and the Bo-Keys played the film's score. Bomar also produced three songs for the Soul Men motion picture soundtrack, including the Grammy-nominated “Soul Music,” and the Bo-Keys performed on-screen with stars Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mack. Most recently Bomar won an Emmy for “Best Original Music” for the documentary I Am A Man: From Memphis, A Lesson in Life and co-produced and engineered Cyndi Lauper's Grammy-nominated Memphis Blues album at his own Electraphonic Recording studio in downtown Memphis.

Heffron Drive

Summer Tour

Hit's Cleveland

What began in 2008 as a passion project in a bedroom studio in Burbank, California has now become a whirlwind endeavor, with ... energetic and dedicated fans across the globe. Kendall Schmidt (23) is founder of the passionately-adored electro-pop band, Heffron Drive.
Kendall's passion for music began when he was just a child. As a youngster, Kendall would often recite whole songs after hearing them just once on the radio. Ever the singer, Kendall soon wanted to broaden his musical horizons. Initially, he tried playing the violin and drums, but neither instrument seemed to fit. One day, however, he borrowed his brother's guitar and from that point forward, he was hooked. Kendall taught himself how to play guitar and eventually released a number of covers on YouTube, which garnered him his first fans.
The initial encounter between Kendall and Dustin, a future Heffron Drive member, occurred at a screening for Kendall's brother's movie in Los Angeles, California. The two became instant friends; learning that each was a musician, had been born in the same hospital in Wichita, Kansas, and currently lived on the same street in Burbank, California. That street? You guessed it, was Heffron Drive.
With money he earned from an acting gig, Kendall purchased some recording gear and the two friends embarked on a musical journey, knowing only to trust their ears and passion for music. When the question of what to name the newly formed band arose, Heffron Drive was the perfect fit. The band started uploading songs, to the then-popular Myspace, and soon thereafter began receiving an overwhelming amount of interest. The Internet was buzzing about the new band's unique music and it wasn't uncommon to find the play counter hovering around 20,000 plays on any given day.
Around mid-2009, however, and soon after the release of Heffron Drive music, Kendall was asked to become the lead singer of the band, Big Time Rush. He accepted, and BTR rapidly became a global phenomenon, with tens of millions of fans across the globe, millions of records and tickets sold, and performances across three continents. Not wanting Heffron Drive to fall apart during his BTR success, Kendall helped secure Dustin a position as a tour guitarist for the group. Although extremely busy, the two still found time to create music for Heffron Drive.
With constant forward momentum, Heffron Drive is now preparing a full-scale launch into the world of irresistible electro-pop music. Infusing infectious melodies, unforgettable hooks, and beamingly beautiful lyrics, Heffron Drive promises to bring that lovable, relatable, missing-piece-of-the-puzzle to today's music scene.
“Life, love, and Heffron Drive.”- Heffron Drive
Heffron Drive's music is now up for purchase on iTunes ( http://t.co/sKJYOfkJLW )

internationally known ~ Soulful Blues Singer out of Sarasota, Fla byway of OHIO


Lauren Mitchell Band

Soul Singer Lauren Mitchell Follows her Musical Heart

"My first solo singing performance happened in church!" recalls Lauren Mitchell, a woman who, in only a few

short years, has crafted a singular, unmistakable voice in the world of blues. "I'd been a member of the chorus

for productions, but performing in my grandparent's church was the first time I stood on my own and opened

my mouth to sing for an audience." Lauren remembers being frightened and a little nervous but she also

remembers that, as she looked out over the faces in the congregation, "it wasn't too scary-and all those people

knew me and loved me and wanted me to succeed."

And succeed she has. The Lauren Mitchell Band is a tour de force, performing around 250 dates per year,

nationally and internationally. Lauren and her band perform in concert halls, venues, historic honky tonks, and

festivals. She's put together a stellar group and is proud of the fact that she spends a lot of time "in a van, with a

bunch of guys, being schooled in the blues!"

Lauren's love of music was passed to her from her grandparents and parents. "My grandfather was a guitarist

and my grandmother was a singer. They both also played organ. They met when my grandmother auditioned for

the bluegrass/country band my grandfather led. My mom also sang in the church choir and there was always

music in the home." Lauren remembers her dad playing guitar. "My favorite tune he played was Mr. Bojangles.

I grew up listening to Aretha Franklin, Diana Ross, Gladys Knight and Fatz Waller and Jelly Roll Morton. My

education in soul and blues came from listening to music my parents listened to." Lauren cites Etta James as

profoundly influencing her sound. "People recognize the Etta influence," says Lauren. "Our music is definitely

more soul that straight blues."

Lauren's gift was recognized by her parents and professional voice lessons became a part of her early life. "I

sang opera and theater music through college. I stumbled on Janis Joplin and she deeply impacted my singing. I

learned Bobby McGee, of course!" A chance encounter with a Karaoke contest set Lauren's musical path in

stone. "My friends insisted I sing Bobby McGee and I won the contest and a hundred bucks! I thought, ‘Man,

maybe I should just keep singing this stuff!'"

Lauren started digging in to the blues and despite a few meandering career choices (bartending, makeup artist,

managing a restaurant) Lauren finally made a heart decision to make music her livelihood."I met and started

working with some amazing musicians in 2005 and the project grew from there. I officially launched The

Lauren Mitchell Band in 2011, and haven't looked back since!" says Lauren.

The Lauren Mitchell Band has released two albums, the latest being "Live! From The Bradfordville Blues Club"

in May of 2014. The record follows up the band's debut, Please Come Home. "Our fans liked the first record but

said it didn't quite represent the feel and energy of our live performances," says Lauren. "Bradfordville Blues

Club is known for fabulous sound and it's a historic juke joint. The place is alive with the musical spirits of

Muddy Waters, Pinetop Perkins, John Lee Hooker and James Cotton, to name just a few. When you play music

that comes from a place in history that is so rich and so significant to our culture, recording music where

legendary figures also played is just magical." Lauren and the band are currently working on material for a third

album, whih she hopes will be finished be the end of 2016.

Lauren Mitchell has come a long way from that little girl singing in front of her church congregation. She's now

a touring, professional blues singer, fronting a band and wowing audiences along the way. Audiences that know

her, love her, and are sure she's succeeding in every musical way.

A Night of Progressive Rock

Violinist | Composer | Singer | Mandolinist | Guitarist | Educator

Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius

Led by electric violinist/vocalist Joe Deninzon (www.joedeninzon.com), who has been called “The Jimi Hendrix of the violin,” Stratospheerius has showcased their “frenzied mélange of alt-bluegrass, progressive rock, jazz fusion and funkabilly” throughout the world. The New York-based group has opened for Tim Reynolds, Mickey Hart, and John Scofield, among many others. Their live performances are filled with funky dance grooves, rip-roaring guitar/violin jams, and hooks that mix jazz, funk, rock with Gypsy influences. Stratospheerius was a winner of the John Lennon International Songwriting Competition, and was named “Best Jam Band” in the Musician’s Atlas Independent Music Awards. They have been featured in Relix, Downbeat, and Jazziz, among other publications. The group has just completed their fifth CD, “The Next World…” on Steve Vai’s Digital Nations label.

“…Violinist/singer Joe Deninzon presents us with this gift of hot songs from his rockin’ live shows. Think a bit of Zappa, the Dixie Dregs or Blues Traveler, with the violin being the focal point. Joe’s talents are flat out phenomenal, and the progressive rock tapestry he weaves around himself is carried out to perfection by his amazing band.”

“Deninzon shows how he has earned the nickname the “Jimi Hendrix of violin” as he tears threw a distortion heavy solo that points more in the direction of Guns N Roses’ Slash than Yo Yo Ma.” -Justin Scro www.cashboxmagazine.com

“Memorable hooks, gravity-defying instrumental prowess and a kitchen sink move toward rock… If Bela Fleck and Frank Zappa had a love child in outer space, they might grow up to sound like these guys do.”
-David Budin, www.coolcleveland.com

Rock, Hard Rock, Progressive Rock from Detroit


TILES is a progressive hard rock band from Detroit, Michigan featuring Mark Evans (drums), Chris Herin (guitar), Paul Rarick ... (vocals), and Jeff Whittle (bass). The band formed in 1993 and is signed to InsideOut Music in North America and Europe. Over the years TILES has developed a style that blends the adventure of progressive rock with an aggressive hard rock edge. Along with reflective and occasionally philosophical lyrics, TILES continues to cultivate a sound that rewards the attentive music enthusiast.

Throughout their nealy 20-year history TILES has garnered praise from a variety of musical icons:

(1) Ian Anderson of Jethro Tull calls TILES "…maturing well-formed music-makers for the new age of inventive guitar-based rock” and hails “Fly Paper” as “Tiles' best CD yet! Sharp, precise vocals tell tales and set scenes - thundering drums and bass lines connect weaving melodies: strong stuff from a band who must soon find long-deserved success."

(2) Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy enthusiastically endorsed TILES' 3rd release 'Presents Of Mind:' "I love this CD. The whole disc is full of great musicianship and great songwriting with catchy hooks."

(3) Upon hearing the TILES demo sessions Gene Simmons of KISS said: "I was totally blown away. Amazing..." And proceeded to sign the band to Simmons Records.

Currently, something had to be done to commemorate Tiles' approaching 20th anniversary, so the band devised their latest CD "Off the Floor" as both a career retrospective and their first official live recording. Released September 2012, TILES opted for the controlled environment of a soundstage and delivered "live in the studio" performances that offer new perspectives on standout tracks from each of the band's five studio recordings.

Complete with several new interludes and adventurous extended jams, "Off the Floor" gives the listener more than a carbon copy of the studio versions with noted producer Terry Brown (Rush) rendering the music with a refreshingly natural sound. "Off the Floor" provides a fresh look at some old songs, adds a few new things, and gives Tiles fans something to tide them over until the next studio release appears in 2014.

Released in 2008 “Fly Paper” is the fifth & most recent studio recording from TILES. Noted producer Terry Brown (Rush, Cutting Crew) fashioned a polished-yet-organic sonic picture that instantly engages the listener. “Fly Paper” finds TILES embracing a renewed sense of experimentation to craft an immediate collection of songs featuring the intricacies of progressive rock blended with deep rhythmic grooves and dense arrangements. Artist Hugh Syme rendered “Fly Paper's” overall theme of human vulnerability with a simple-yet-disquieting paper airplane floating over a cityscape – representing an obvious sense of threat while maintaining the whimsical notion that the plane is only paper. “Fly Paper” features an impressive roster of special guests including Alannah Myles on vocals; Kim Mitchell (Max Webster) and Alex Lifeson (Rush) on guitar; Hugh Syme on keyboards; Matthew Parmenter (Discipline) keyboards and vocals; and Sonya Mastick on percussion.

TILES released their fourth CD “Window Dressing” in the summer of 2004. Produced, engineered and mixed by Terry Brown, “Window Dressing” received high marks worldwide for its experimental blend of epic song cycles and dark garage rock aesthetics – and was nominated for a 2005 Detroit Music Award. The CD features the design and artwork of award winning artist Hugh Syme and was issued with a bonus “live bootleg” CD from the band's 1999 European tour with Dream Theater.

TILES' third CD, "Presents of Mind," was released worldwide in the summer of 1999. Propelled by positive reviews, airplay, and word-of-mouth, "Presents of Mind" solidified the band's place in the consciousness of the progressive underground and generated an invitation from Dream Theater to open their November 1999 European tour. Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy offered his endorsement: ‘I love this CD! The entire disc is full of great musicianship and great songwriting with catchy hooks.'

TILES followed their debut with "Fence the Clear" in 1997, which saw the band bringing in noted producer Terry Brown during the final mixing stage. The disc was again well-received by fans and reviews were positive with "Fence the Clear" scoring 94/100 in Aardschok (Holland); 5/6 in SCREAM (Norway); earning HM Magazine's "Pick of the Litter" award (US); and culminating with the Detroit Free Press naming TILES "Detroit's leading progressive rock band."

TILES first reached the international music scene in the summer of 1995 when Polydor released "tiles" throughout Europe on their Dream Circle label. Sales were strong with the help of excellent reviews from Aardschok (91/100), SCREAM (6/6) and Rock Hard (Germany) (8/10) among others. Teichiku Records revised the artwork and released the disc in Japan with BURRN! Magazine rating "tiles" an 88/100 and saying "...(tiles is) a wonderful album with a very high level of technique and a great melodic sense." The CD entered the BURRN! chart at #47.

The first three TILES CDs were re-mastered with bonus tracks and expanded packaging and reissued as Special Editions in 2004.

Tiles endorses Mesa/Boogie Amplification, Elixir Strings, Aquarian Drumheads, Eden Electronics, and Ken Smith Basses & Strings.

Blues Supergroup




with drummer WES STARR and bassist RW GRIGSBY

The Golden State/Lone Star Revue is an all-star, cross-country melding of musicians from California -- Mark Hummel (harp-blower, vocalist, bandleader and Grammy nominee), Little Charlie Baty (ex-Nightcats bandleader and guitar hero) and RW Grigsby (bassist) -- and Texans Anson Funderburgh (guitarist and Rockets bandleader) and Wes Starr (famed Austin drummer who has played with a who's who of Texas music royalty).

Hummel's Blues Award nominated release; "The Hustle Is Really On", features the GS/LS Revue, which has just completed a new recording for 2016 release. Besides producing and playing on Blind Pig's "Remembering Little Walter" with Charlie Musselwhite, Billy Boy Arnold, Sugar Ray Norcia, James Harman, Little Charlie Baty, Nathan James, June Core & RW Grigsby, the CD was nominated for a Grammy Award and has recently won Best Blues Album & Best Traditional Blues Album of the year at the Blues Music Awards in Memphis, TN.

Hummel's latest CD on ElectroFi "The Hustle Is Really On" just placed #2 on Living Blues Radio and features the Golden State/Lone Star project.

" When this trio of pilots took it for a spin, it soared and rocked, powered by electricity and an elite crew who make flying the blues-friendly skies a reality, not a catchphrase. " Grant Britt - BLUES MUSIC MAGAZINE

" On the "Hustle Is Really On", Hummel and his co-conspirators invoke the spirit of these greats with plenty of verve and chops to spare. " Michael Cote - BLUES MUSIC MAGAZINE

" Mark Hummel came of age in the early 70s, at the height of rock and roll,like many of his peers went and bought a harmonica and hasn't stopped playing since. A specialist in West Coast Blues he's a seasoned showman who knows more than a thing or two about how to please an audience. " - THE NEW YORKER

LITTLE CHARLIE BATY - is the former leader and masterful guitarist from Alligator Records recording act"Litle Charlie & the Nightcats". Charlie and the Nightcats have recorded 12 albums on Alligator and have been one of the West Coast's most successful blues acts, touring the globe for over 25 years. They've played every major Festival you can think of and every blues joint from Maine to Spain.

Guitar World declares, "Baty's straight blues playing is eye-popping...he stretches solos to the breaking point, skittering on the edge, where one wrong note will bring the whole thing crashing down." "Little Charlie Baty plays as much guitar as Eric Clapton and Buddy Guy put together," raves The Village Voice. "He is one of the swiftest, most fluent guitarists working in any genre".

ANSON FUNDERBURGH - Born in 1954, Anson Funderburgh hails from Plano,Texas, where the youngster first picked up guitar. In high school, he got bit by the blues bug through Jimmy Reed and Lightning Hopkins. By 1978, he started Anson & The Rockets with vocalist/harp player Darrell Nulisch, and the group was signed by Black Top Records a couple years later. In 1986, Nulisch was replaced by Blind Sam Myers who stayed until his death in 2006. The Rockets went on to win 10 Handy?s.

After Myer's death, Funderburgh took a seven-year hiatus from performing to devote to his new family. In 2011, Funderburgh resumed performing with both The Rockets and the Eric Lindell Band. The latter part of 2012 saw the first of many tours of the Golden State/Lone Star Revue. Funderburgh has played with Delbert McClinton (and joins his Sandy Beaches Cruise every year), Boz Scaggs, Snooks Eaglin, Grady Gaines, Earl King and Jimmy Buffett. Funderburgh is also the inspiration for Beavis (Beavis & Butthead); former bassist and creator of the characters, Mike Judge, worked as a Rocket for three years.
