Jetboy
Jetboy
Founded in 1983 by guitarists Billy Rowe and Fernie Rod, JETBOY continues to carry their style of Rock N' Roll into the 21st century with the same fury that existed 25 years ago. Long recognized as one of the perfectors of the glam genre, JETBOY was one of a handful of acts that got the attention of music fans and record executives alike. While Hollywood was loaded with musical talent, San Francisco had but one true leader at the time, and that leader was JETBOY. Now a cross-generational powerhouse, JETBOY is experiencing a resurgence in popularity that can only be attributed to their musical relevance. Rock N' Roll fans the world over are beginning to revisit the music that helped to shape a generation, and is now becoming the soundtrack for their offspring. Songs like Feel the Shake, Heavy Chevy, Stomp it Down to the Bricks, and their up rocked up version of Folsom Prison Blues have struck a chord with an increasingly more discerning audience. Celebrating their 25th anniversary, the founding members of JETBOY (Billy Rowe, Fernie Rod and Mickey Finn) are dedicated to bringing the party atmosphere back to Rock N' Roll. Having just finished a triumphant reunion tour that saw the band playing major stages like Rocklahoma, The South Texas Rock Fest, Rock the Bayou and M3 JETBOY have entered the studio to record a new album for the first time In 19 years.

Twenty years after the release of the highly acclaimed Damnednation, Jetboy has completed work on their most recent project Off Your Rocker. Off Your Rocker will be available on March 2, 2010 via iTunes and Amazon.com.

Best described as a blend of edgy rock and roll with a traditional blues based influence, Off Your Rocker is the perfect vehicle to exploit the commanding vocal styling of Mickey Finn. The three studio tracks on the EP were written in mere days, further exemplifying the fact that the music is so entrenched in passion that the writing was clearly unforced



Having been absent from the studio for some 20 years, Jetboy recorded Off Your Rocker in a fully organic mode. The band played all in the same room together in a "live-style" format in an effort to duplicate the way the songs were written, all together, in a true 1970's fashion where the band could feed off of one another's energy.
The Flamethrowers
The Flamethrowers are an American Punk Rock and Roll and Roll band formed in the summer of
1984 by guitarist and skateboard legend Steve "Salba" Alba, drummer Edward "Evil" Neville, bassist
Rocko Occhiato and vocalist Kurt M. Ross. In November of 1984, guitar player Jeff Moses signed on
and the band quickly became known as an impressive club draw in and around Southern California.
Supporting headliners like Agent Orange, Rank & File, Guns n Roses and The Lords of the New
Church - The Flamethrowers' reputation for blistering live shows, street smart virtuosity and over the
top, larger than life personalities is steeped in a dirty bag of delta blues, rockabilly, pub, punk,
garage rock and straight money glitter boogie. Powering into their third decade, The Flamethrowers
are heading to Europe for summer tour dates in Sweden, Norway and Finland in 2016.
Dr. Boogie
"In this era of canned pop and one-hit wonders, it's harder and harder to find new bands that embody the true spirit of rock... n' roll. Suddenly, roaring out of Los Angeles, CA comes Dr. Boogie - a four piece powerhouse. Building on the foundation of seminal groups like the New York Dolls, Dead Boys, Flamin' Groovies, Rolling Stones, and Chuck Berry while adding their own twist to songwriting. With instant classics like "Get Back To New York City" and "Down This Road", Dr. Boogie has already captured the attention of Los Angeles taste-makers and have gained huge momentum in the underground rock n' roll scene from their home town of Los Angeles to countries overseas. Their songs are filled with infectious melodies belted out at full volume and soaked in enough attitude and moxy to keep pace with the raunchy guitar riffs littered throughout, and a rhythm section that moves like a locomotive headed straight for your gut. Since debuting in Oct 2014, they've built a loyal following in the club scene, recorded and released their first EP (available on Dead Beat Records, iTunes, Amazon, and CD Baby), been featured by legendary DJ Rodney Bingenheimer on his KROQ radio show Rodney On The Roq, received airplay on the Sirius XM radio station "Little Steven's Underground Garage" by DJ Genya Ravan for her show "Goldie's Garage", as well as being invited by KXLU 88.9FM to perform live on their weekly broadcast. Consisting of singer/guitarist Chris P., guitarist Dustin James, bassist Jeff Turpin and drummer Luis Herrera, they are a well-oiled machine, pumping out irresistible grooves to fans hungry for high energy rock n' roll. Current plans include the release of their debut full-length album (Fall 2015 on Dead Beat Records, Cleveland OH), a single release (Fall 2015 on White Zoo Records, Italy), a few national tours, and some gigs overseas. Armed with strong performances, and bursting with attitude, this is one band that is carving out its own place in today's music world. Keep your eyes peeled and you ears to the ground for Los Angeles' newest musical provocateurs." - Bill Cutler

"I can't really find anything to not like about these guys... Dr. Boogie are blazing their own smoky trail of snarling guitars, whorehouse pianos and honky tonkin' harmonicas that impresses upon first listen." - Veglam, Anguish Young

"Talk about chemistry - this band is like the lab accident that gave The Flash his superpowers." - Sef Ashby, The Dead Notes
