KONGOS
KONGOS
KONGOS is a rock band of four brothers — Johnny, Jesse, Dylan and Daniel Kongos. They grew up in London and South Africa and now write, record and perform in Phoenix, Arizona. With multi-million-seller British singer-songwriter John Kongos as their father, they have been surrounded by music, studios and different cultures all of their lives.

Their debut album was released in 2007 on iTunes worldwide and received glowing reviews. Written, produced and engineered by themselves, it demonstrates their wide range of influences culminating in the KONGOS sound. They were named Best Rock Band of Phoenix by the Phoenix New Times.

Their single In The Music reached No. 9 on the influential TuksFM top 40 in South Africa. Other airplay includes Indie 103.1 in Los Angeles, Q101 in Chicago, 98 KUPD and The Edge 103.9 in Phoenix, XFM in the UK, Motor FM in Germany, KNRK 94.7 in Portland, WXPN in Philadelphia and many more. They’ve played extensively in Arizona and California, including five successful shows at The Viper Room, the most recent being Indie 103.1 sponsored. Their Spring ’08 West Coast tour featured a KNRK sponsored show in Portland, interviews and performances on Indie 103.1 FM in Los Angeles, 98 KUPD in Phoenix, KNRK 94.7 FM in Portland, and a video interview/performance for GoTV Networks.

KONGOS is currently recording their second album and will be releasing a monthly single, starting with It’s a Good Life.

MERGENCE
MERGENCE
Mostly derived from the several reviews, articles both in print and on the web:
Blues, indie, classic rock, all coexisting as one in the passion-, soul-driven four-piece band Mergence — a band that will not only draw you in, but keep you on your toes and soles, while you sway with every note.
Compared to the likes of The Black Keys, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles and Pink Floyd, it is undeniable that Mergence's distinctive trait is the passion and soul infused in the performance of each track.

The bands meditative lyrics are as raw as its sound, threading themes of life, love, sex and death. Their tracks evoke a strong reaction from their devout, diverse following, from young to old and from all walks of life. With an earthy, catchy sound, Mergence is as real as it gets. Their live shows and performances are an unequivocal match to the quality of their tracks and album — because they're recorded mostly live, too — packaged into a lustfully smooth sound, collaboratively and effortlessly produced by the band's diverse members, including vocalist/guitarist/keyboardist Adam Bruce, Yod on guitar, Brandon Shupe on bass and Jason Roedl rounding out the rhythm section on the drums.
THE TECHNICOLORS
THE TECHNICOLORS
American rock band The Technicolors started off as the brainchild of Phoenix-native Brennan Smiley.

The formation of the band itself started back when Smiley was acoustically supporting other local music acts by performing his songs live. After a few shows, the project began to grow and soon turned into a more serious approach, taking on the form of The Technicolors.

Inspired by the New Millennium’s garage rock and mid 90's Brit-pop, The Technicolors combine elements of those two genres with classic and modern components and subject matters to introduce a completely new and exclusive sound.

Today, The Technicolors is Brennan Smiley (Vocals, Guitar), Troy Lowney (Keys), Mike (Nico) Nicolette (Bass), and Sean Silverman (Guitar, Vocals).
