It’s not just artistic anesthetization either, but rather a galvanizing force that inspires us to keep pushing through life’s trials and tribulations. That’s why we still listen to Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Pink Floyd, Rush, and countless others all these years later. It’s the same reason audiences will be talking about Backup Planet’s second full-length album, Reactions, for a long time to come. The Nashville, TN quartet—Ben Cooper [keys, vocals], Chris Potocik [drums, vocals], Gavin Donati [guitar, vocals], and Blake Gallant [bass, vocals]—write arena-size anthems echoing with progressive intricacy, funk swagger, and even a little metallic edge. Giving listeners an inspiring and invigorating aural haven, their moniker couldn’t be more apropos…
Gang of Thieves
Gang of Thieves are pioneering a new breed of American Rock n Roll, injecting funky riffs, catchy melodies, and electric violin into unforgettable high energy performances. From Opera Houses to Music Halls, and Colleges to Preschools, the Gang has captivated audiences of all ages from around the globe. The band just released their new EP “Totem”(December 8th), recorded with grammy winning engineer Michael Rosen (Santana, Rancid, Less than Jake).
WEISSHUND is a rock and roll duo from Atlanta made up of Rick Lollar (vocals and guitar) and Marlon Patton (drums and Moog bass pedals). Patton and Lollar channel their respective influences of John Bonham and Jimi Hendrix, while focusing on riffs and melody and performing with the reckless abandon of a garage band.
