AMERICAN LONGSPURS with JON RAUHOUSE & THE COUNTRY MUSIC ORCHESTRA
AMERICAN LONGSPURS with JON RAUHOUSE & THE COUNTRY MUSIC ORCHESTRA
Hailing from the American southwest, American Longspurs deliver their brand of country rock from the sweltering streets of Phoenix, Arizona. Formed by childhood friends and lifelong musical partners Zachary Zimmerman and Drew Switzer, American Longspurs evoke the sounds of yesterday's outlaw country legends Waylon Jennings and Johnny Paycheck while drawing comparisons to today's Americana superstars such as Drive-By Truckers and Ryan Bingham. With Chester Carmer, Nick Pawlowski and John Churchill rounding out the band in 2014 the Longspurs hit the stage hard including an appearance at the Country Thunder music festival alongside Jason Aldean, Miranda Lambert, The Band Perry, Easton Corbin and more. The year was highlighted, however, by the release of their sophomore EP Palo Santo. "While many artists seem to pay lip service to respecting classic country music, that’s not always evident in their sound. Fortunately, that’s not the case with American Longspurs. Frequently plain-spoken, sometimes poetic, Palo Santo provides a soundtrack for wanderers" (Carolyn Dixon, Goodnight Hestia). Proving there is indeed no rest for the wicked, American Longspurs kicked off 2015 with the release of their latest single Whiskey Feelin' which is available now on all major online music stores and streaming applications. The boys are currently hard at work writing and recording new material for a follow-up release expected out late 2015.

HUCKLEBERRY
HUCKLEBERRY
Huckleberry is an americana band based in Tempe, Arizona. Since forming in 2011, the six-piece band have played throughout the valley and released their debut album Fine Highway January 2013.

Huckleberry mixes alt country twang, ragtime swing, jazz, Hawaiian and rock to form a sound that you can dance to, drink to, clean your room to, make out to, whatever butters your biscuit.

Often compared to the likes of Wilco, Harry Nilsson and The Flying Burrito Brothers, Huckleberry blends the new with the old to create unique desert narratives and barroom ballads.

They are going out on a west coast tour this summer and are currently writing new material for a follow up album to be recorded in the fall of 2013.
