                    The Rocketboys

                    The Rocketboys' sound reflects the Texas landscape from which they hail: vast, yet sparse, desolate, yet rich and abundant. Often eschewing familiar lyrical themes of romance and love for songs of brotherhood, family, life, and death, The Rocketboys' catalog chronicles the band's journey throughout its often tumultuous existence.

                    The Rocketboys was born in college dorm rooms in Abilene, TX and swiftly achieved critical acclaim from debut EP "Sing, Bird, Sing" and LP "20,000 Ghosts" before 3 members departed in 2011. Overcoming the nearly fatal blow, the remaining members, Brandon Kinder (singer & guitarist), Justin Wiseman (keyboards) and Josh Campbell (bass), resiliently crafted "Build Anyway" (2012) - a lush, cathartic album which cemented The Rocketboys' status as a formidable rock band.

                    A strong track record of commercial success testifies to The Rocketboys' keen ability to create and capture unique, emotional musical experiences. "One Tree Hill," "Private Practice," "Elementary," and many others have channeled the band's thematic energy. Reviews often highlight the band’s parity with textural acts such as Band of Horses and Death Cab for Cutie while retaining the mass appeal of Coldplay, The Verve and Keane.

                    No strangers to the road (the band will perform its 700th show this year), The Rocketboys continually find fans across the country with a powerful live show. Armed with a growing collection of new material for a third full-length album, The Rocketboys hit the studio in May leading up to a busy fall tour schedule and ultimately the next chapter in their musical odyssey.

                    QUOTES

                    "Sounds like an amped up Death Cab for Cutie with strong Coldplay-style melodies"
                    -NEW YORK TIMES

                    "When it comes to song writing, the line between 'earnest' and 'overly-earnest' could not be any finer, or risky. In their latest album 20,000 Ghosts, The Rocketboys always stay just on the right side of said line, creating rich anthems that are as infectious as they are sincere."
                    -PASTE MAGAZINE

                    "The Rocketboys have a sound as expansive as the open road and lyrics deep as a Southwest sunrise. Lofty melodies encircle broad indie rock compositions on The Rocketboys' debut album, 20,000 Ghosts."

                    -CHICAGOIST

                    "The band's got some legs to stand on -- Impressive harmonies and melodies, and, overall, quite the pleasing, heartfelt indie rock sound."
                    -DALLAS OBSERVER

                    "[20,00 Ghosts] is fresh with rich textures, like the lead guitar on “Rare Triumphs of Love and Fortune” or the underlying drumbeats of “I Saw a Stone.” With his alto range, approaching falsetto at times, singer Brandon Kinder creates an ethereal, almost spiritual, tone."
                    -TEXAS MUSIC MAGAZINE

                    "...tight, epic, densely layered sound..."
                    -MEMPHIS COMMERCIAL APPEAL

                    "Building gray-hued swells of chorused guitar and minor-key piano processionals, the Rocketboys may have a sound as wide as the West Texas skies, but they’re decidedly overcast with clouds that perpetually threaten rain."
                    -THE ONION, AUSTIN

                    "The Rocketboys' sound is rife with shimmering ambience, reverberating piano, pinging guitars and lead singer Brandon Kinder's smooth yet soaring vocals, bringing a sound resembling other bittersweet and earnest acts such as Keane."
                    -THE OKLAHOMA GAZETTE

                    "The Rocketboys showed a mastery of mood and subtlety. Amplifying a sound made familiar to Texas music fans by bands such as Cue and Explosions in the Sky, the six-member group adorns singer Brandon Kinder's soaring melodies with clear, ringing guitars and full-bodied keyboard arrangements, hard-driving drumlines and well-practiced transitions between calm and controlled chaos."

                    Quiet Company

                    Through the release of three LPs and endless touring, the Austin, Texas band Quiet Company has been making a name for themselves nationally with their energetic live shows and their anthemic, dynamic, indie rock which critics have called a mix of The Beatles, Death Cab for Cutie, Arcade Fire and Weezer. They’ve gained a huge fanbase while gathering praise from The New York Times, TIME, NPR, Last Call with Carson Daly, Paste Magazine, Houston Chronicle, Austin Chronicle and more.

                    Quiet Company won Rock Band of the Year during SXSW 2014, adding to their
                    previous 10 Austin Music Awards including Band of the Year, Album of the Year, Rock Band of the Year, Indie Band of the Year and Song of the Year, all won on the strength of their 2011 release We Are All Where We Belong.

                    After the success of their 2013 album re-release, A Dead Man on My Back: Shine Honesty Revisited, Quiet Company was featured on NPR’s “All Things Considered” and chosen to be a Red Bull Sound Select Artist, all of which rekindled interest in We Are All Where We Belong and shot the album to #7 on the iTunes Rock charts nearly 2 years after its release.

                    After an amazing year on the road which included festival sets at NXNE, CMJ, ACL Fest and more, Quiet Company kicked off 2014 in the studio to write and record their highly anticipated 4th full length Transgressor, their most explosive and exposed collection of songs to date. Recorded in 14 intense days of live tracking at Orb Recording Studios in Austin, the band captured a guitar-driven larger-than-life sound with Matt Noveskey (Blue October) producing and the legendary Tim Palmer (U2, Pearl Jam, The Cure) mixing. Frontman Taylor Muse's characteristically introspective writing style is in full force as he tells tales of love, despair, pain, and redemption, reflecting on his marriage, from burgeoning young love to a relationship tested through time.

                    With its soaring guitars and throbbing bass lines drawing comparisons to Foo Fighters, Pavement and Manchester Orchestra, Quiet Company’s Transgressor will be leading the way as rock makes a return to form.

                              "Kansas City band Mouth combines the elements of guitar, bass and drums to form a delectable musical stew... The band adds the fresh spices of jazz, funk, dance and hip hop to create an eclectic mix." - Ink

                              Formed in late 2008 by guitarist Jeremy Anderson, bassist Zach Rizer and drummer Stephen Gunn, Mouth plays original "cyberfunk" music: bass-heavy, deep funk grooves that combine rhythmic elements from funk, house, dubstep and hip hop with the improvisational approach of a jam band.

                              Having quickly established a name for themselves in their hometown with their exhilarating live shows, Mouth is now branching out with tour dates and festival performances throughout the Midwest.

                              "Fans wanting to pigeonhole Mouth's music, do so at their own risk. The three-piece Kansas City band combines elements of funk, jazz, hip hop, electronica and progressive rock in their unique, dance-friendly instrumental songs." - The Daily Record

                                Andy Frasco

                                Andy Frasco, a twenty four year old Party Blues musician hailing from Los Angeles, California, is nothing short of an enigma. In 2011 alone, he was the "New Artist to Watch" at Hatch Fest, European Independent Film Festival, Orion Music Festival and Sundance Film Festival.

                                Within the past 4 years alone, Frasco has trekked over 150,000 miles, performed over 1000 shows, and spanned the country at l
                                east 12 times. Frasco’s journey, however, is just beginning. This revolutionary is on a mission to alter the music business as we know it.

                                Frasco’s a rarity in the music business: one who is an industry “insider” and a talented musician. This unparalleled insight is due, in part, to his days of managing and promoting bands when he was 16 years old. He’s booked bands like HelloGoodbye, and worked with labels and venues such as Drive Thru, Atlantic Records and The Key Club in Hollywood, CA.
                                From there, Frasco toured the country with VH1’s Save the Music Foundation, raising money for Music Education in the Public Schools.

                                Yet 220 shows in 360 days through 33 states that he personally booked on the Save the Music Tour wasn’t enough for this young prodigy. Frasco headed back to Los Angeles to form his own band and produce his 3rd and current album, Road Life Revival. Currently on tour for Road Life Revival, Frasco continues to prove that he is a dynamic force with which to be reckoned, as listeners marvel at his talent and soulful performances wherever he goes.

                                Andy Frasco has jammed with artists such as Leon Russell, Galactic, Jackie Greene, Gary Clark Jr, Jakob Dylan, Butch Walker, The Flobots, Deer Tick, John Mayer and more. Not bad for a 24 year old.

                                The Steel Wheels

                                The Steel Wheels have captured audiences across the country with their heady brew of original soulful mountain music and their deep commitment to roots and community. Based in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia, this dynamic four-piece string band marries old-time musical traditions with their own innovative sound and lifestyle, generating a truly magnetic revival.

                                The Steel Wheels is an amalgamation of hard work and easy rapport. The band is renowned for their raw energy and chemistry on stage, where they often cluster tightly around a single microphone to adorn Trent Wagler’s unmistakable tenor with bell-clear four-part harmonies inspired by their shared Mennonite heritage. Add to this Eric Brubaker’s lively and evocative fiddle, Brian Dickel’s grounded yet buoyant upright bass, and Jay Lapp’s signature mandolin style, and it’s no surprise that The Steel Wheels have enthralled the contemporary Americana scene.

                                Their breakout album, Red Wing, garnered critical praise and enjoyed tremendous success on the radio. It spent 13 weeks on the Americana Music Association’s Top 40 Chart, where it reached the number 15 slot, and cracked the Euro Americana Chart top 10. Red Wing ranked 70th out of the top 100 Americana albums of 2010 and second out of all independent releases (Americana Music Association). The Steel Wheels were nominated for five Independent Music Awards in 2010, with “Nothing You Can’t Lose” taking top honors as Best Country Song. The Steel Wheels continue to take the Americana scene by storm with their latest album, Lay Down, Lay Low, which lingered for 10 weeks on the AMA’s Top 40 Chart. NPR named “Rain in the Valley” their Song of the Day, marveling that the “heavy hymn […] is sparse and dense all at once.” Already celebrated as the darlings of Merlefest 2012, the band looks forward to further accolades during a phenomenal festival line-up.

                                As the band thrives, so do their partnerships with local businesses, artisans, and charitable organizations. The values portrayed in their music—devotion to roots, community, and family—are a way of life for The Steel Wheels, and this is reflected in everything from production process and booking agency to merchandise and touring. For the past three years, they have performed an annual SpokeSongs bicycle music tour, during which band members tow their instruments, equipment, and merchandise from one gig to another via bicycle and blog about their adventures. Last year’s tour spanned 11 days, 550 miles, and 10 shows. This year’s tour included multiple charity rides, such as Lose The Training Wheels, Charity Ride for Kids, and Wheels Up for Cory.

                                The band’s merchandise represents a host of grassroots connections to people and businesses. Lucas Roasting Company, located just outside of Harrisonburg, created “Halfway to Heaven” dark roast coffee in honor of their friends The Steel Wheels. Blue Mountain Brewery, located on Afton Mountain in Virginia, hosted the band when they were just getting started and now sells a “Steel Wheels ESB.” The Livery’s master brewer rode with the band on their second bike tour and, soon after, created their “Steel Wheels Stout.” The band’s T-shirts are made in downtown Harrisonburg, and a potter who is a childhood friend of Jay’s makes their mugs. Each business is local for the band, and each product is intimately woven into their narrative. The Steel Wheels are proof that music remains a viable and sustaining force for connection in our world.

                                You Me & Everyone We Know

                                Is this band unhinged? It's a fair question. The songs of You, Me and Everyone We Know seem to emerge from the shadows, alternating monologues of spite and discontent with rhapsodies of inordinate joy. But peer through the veil of havoc, and it's clear this band seeks a new, if unnerving, way to rock its way to the truth. "A lot of the stuff is a mix of what sits in the back of your head," says singer/songwriter Ben Liebsch. "We're insistent on really weird wild things to put in the songs." Until recently, the band was seriously DIY, releasing a self-made indie CD and touring the eastern half of the country, especially in and around their homebase of Washington, D.C. But happily, drive-thru records' co-founders Richard Reines and Stefanie Reines heard them, loved them and offered to manage them. And with their CD, "Party for the Grown and Sexy," impressing fans and critics alike, You Me and Everyone We Know is getting pretty well-known themselves. What does Liebsch mean by weird and wild? For one, the band explores taboo subjects � stealing a friend's girlfriend ("I'd Be More Interested If You Were Already Spoken For"), skipping out on all responsibilities ("The Rent is Due") � with a minimum of judgment and a maximum of emotion. More often than not, Ryan Sherrill and Noel Milford construct an impenetrable wall of guitar while Liebsch spins out shockingly elegant lines, or just ropes in his bandmates for a shouted chorus. "Most of the songs," adds Liebsch, "are more cautionary tales then anything else. In the end we're trying to write exciting music that's catchy and throws you for a loop at the same time. " While Liebsch cites influences as diverse as Joe Cocker, Andrew W.K. and Skylar Croom, he started out like any other ADD-addled middle schooler in Dundalk, MD, ("I just want to stare at girls and sleep"). Then he discovered the local club scene and began fawning over "lots of crappy bands I absolutely adored." Liebsch formed his own band on a dare after teaching himself ever Sublime tune on the guitar. He also began writing songs, but not in any conventional style. Through his series of start-up bands, he met with the same vacant stares from colleagues who didn't get what he was trying to do. Then he met guitarist Ryan Sherrill, who had been in the D.C. band Underscore along with drummer Paul Martinez. They did get what Liebsch was trying to do, and by the end of 2006, with Noel Milford as second guitarist, a new band was born. Bassist Mike O'Rourke rounded out line-up. So far, YM&EWK has spread itself far and wide, touring across the country from Chicago to Maine, on their own or sharing the bill with bands like I Am The Avalanche, Piebald and the Spotlight. "Basically, we like to create a bit of a party," says Liebsch of the band's live performances. "We prefer to break down the self-consciousness of people, let loose and try to encourage everyone else to. We come off a little crazy." Which reignites the question: could You, Me and Everyone We Know be unhinged? Maybe, but that's a good way to knock down doors. As Ben Liebsch says, "We want to do everything we can to get your attention."

                                      In person, Connor Leimer comes across as your average high school student. He's tall and lanky, with a fresh face and a wide, easy smile. He trusts easily. His tender 17-year-old heart has yet to be split open by life.
                                      That's fortunate — at least for the rest of us — because we wouldn't have his excellent debut EP, Like It's June, if not for that ingenuous, youthful spirit.
                                      Leimer, a Blue Valley North High School junior, has been writing songs for the guitar since seventh grade, but he composed most of the EP's five tracks last summer. Leimer was part of the Grammy Museum's 2013 Music Revolution Project, a four-week summer school of sorts for teens interested in developing their craft. There, Leimer met fellow artists Hank Wiedel, Blair Bryant, Haley Ryan and Brandon Thomas, all of whom appear on June.
                                      The record was recorded at the local Weights and Measures Soundlab. As its title suggests, Like It's June is an easy, windows-rolled-down collection. Yet it's also surprisingly mature, with a sound somewhere between the sunny catchiness of Jack Johnson and the rawness of Jake Bugg. And that's what Leimer wanted.
                                      "Before this program [the Grammy Music Revolution], I was just a guy writing acoustic songs in my room," Leimer says. "But I love doing this. I feel like I've been doing it forever."
                                      Leimer is one of FAI's youngest conference performers, but he has ready opinions about folk, rattling off a long list of artists he says fit the category. On his short honor roll: Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young; John Mayer; and local Americana band She's a Keeper. The common denominator for him is the songwriting itself.
                                      "I'm primarily a songwriter, so I really get into that," he says. "The lyrics are really important to me. It's natural. That's what I like about it. You have a memory of that particular moment in time, and you can play it back for your kids 30 years later. It kind of becomes a little bit of history."

                                        The Melvins

                                        The Melvins formed in Aberdeen/Montesano, WA in 1983 the founding members were Buzz, Mike Dillard (drums), and ex-Mudhoney bassist Matt Lukin. Buzz, Mike, and Matt all went to high school in Montesano. The name Melvins came from a grocery clerk at the Thriftway in Montesano where King Buzzo served as clerk and vandal. Melvin was the most hated fellow employee and they felt it to be an appropriately ridiculous name.

                                        When Mike couldn't cut it, as rumor has it because the songs were getting too mathematically complex, Dale was recruited out of the Iron Maiden cover band he played in at the age of 15. Matt was replaced by Lori Black (Lorax) (Shirley Temple's daughter) when they left Aberdeen for San Francisco.

                                        The Melvins have had quite a few bass player changes during their tenure. Check out the bassist morgue to learn more. The Melvins live in Hollywood, CA right now.

                                        The Melvins Discography is an exhaustive resource of their many releases. They were on a major label Atlantic Records for three albums, although most would agree they're not the type of band that would appeal to a major label. They knew this while they were being signed and just took advantage of the drunken blitz the record companies were on in signing any band connected to a supposed Seattle "grunge" sound.

                                        Dale filled in for Nirvana when they were between drummers and he appears on Incesticide and Bleach as a result of those sessions. Buzz has a side project called Fantômas with Mike Patton (Faith No More/Mr. Bungle) who is also owner of Ipecac Recordings the label the melvins are currently releasing material through. He also plays guitar in the hardcore/grind "supergroup" Venomous Concept, featuring members/former members of Napalm Death and Brutal Truth (also released through Ipecac). Melvins have also released music on Boner Records, Alchemy Records, Amphetamine Reptile Records, Alternative Tentacles Records, and numerous others in the manner of 7"s and whatnot.

                                        Dale has a side project called Altamont. Kevin Rutmanis (bassist, 1998 - early 2005) used to be in the band Cows, he also is in another Mike Patton project along with Duane Denison of the Jesus Lizard called Tomahawk. I would completely recommend anything a Melvins member has released. Melvins have toured with KISS, White Zombie, NIN, L7, Primus, Tool, and Rush, among others and were also on the Ozzfest tour in 98. They toured with a second guitarist at one point David Scott Stone (a great noisician). If you ever get the chance to see them live be sure to give them gifts, they prefer Cracker Barrel gift certificates.

                                          Freak Juice to bring together many kinds of music for their concert at The Bottleneck Friday November 23rd!



                                          Friday the 23rd, The Bottleneck will be rocking when Freak Juice comes to town! This concert will have everything from reggae to rock, blues to punk and hip-hop to jazz ala Fishbone! Freak Juice has it all. As band founder Tori Ruffin explains, “It’s a blender full of musical juices, churning to produce a fresh batch of Freak Juice!”

                                          Bringing together all of the sounds of Freak Juice is a diverse group of musicians, each with their own favored genres and lots of experience. Charlie, the bassist, also sings R & B, the drummer Stan loves jazz and the MC is into Incubus and other rock bands. Tori, who plays guitar, has worked as a session player in L.A. for years alongside an incredible list of artists. Lenny Kravitz, Fishbone, Slightly Stoopid, Dr. Dre, Mariah Carey, Mick Jagger, Michael Jackson, Bobby Brown, DJ Quick, Prince and A Tribe Called Quest, just to name a few.

                                          “All of my life I’ve made my living producing and playing specific genres for other artists. So when it came time to put together something for myself, I didn’t want to be confined or limited in what we did.” Tori said, “I love rock, jazz, punk, funk and hip hop and the art of improv, so I decided to have a rock band that encompasses it all, but really stay true to the styles. Some people throw the term ‘jazz’ around when it’s really not at all. When we play jazz, it’s jazz. When we rock, it’s rock. At least that’s my goal.”

                                          Tori finds inspiration from his fans and from the other artists he likes, such as Miles Davis, The Deftones, Fishbone, Morris Day and Coltrane. The most fun part of touring for Tori is meeting new fans that appreciate the different genres Freak Juice incorporates in its music.

                                          “Never been to Kansas and we’re super excited to get some virgin juice-making ears into the blender!” Tori said, “It’s a hell of a live show! You will have a blast! It’s a groove-rocking, artful, juice-making journey not to be forgotten!”

                                          For their first concert at The Bottleneck, Freak Juice will be playing with local artists New Suede and Grenadina! Do not miss out on this epic concert Friday the 23rd!
