Ultimately, Thomas Laufenberg and Gary Smith replaced Hopkins and Riggs and the crew forged onward landing major label deals with Hollywood Records and EMI Publishing. Changing its moniker to The Pistoleros, the group released its Hollywood effort, "Hang on to Nothing", which included the single "My Guardian Angel", written by Hopkins and Mark Zubia. "Hang on to Nothing" also featured songwriting collaborations with The Jayhawks' Gary Louris and Mark Perlman, Radney Foster and The Smithereens' Pat DiNizio.
The Pistoleros furthered their recorded legacy with a self-titled effort which included co-writes with Jesse Valenzuela of the Gin Blossoms and producer Marty Frederickson.
The guys marked their 10th anniversary with the concert collection "Bars and Guitars". In 2012, to celebrate 20 years together, they re-released their first LP "Mistaken for Granted".
In 2014, Pistoleros signed with Fervor Records. January of '15 marked the Fervor release of “Shine”.
By early 2017, Mark Riggs re-joined the band. Upon Riggs’ return, the group settled in to the studio to record a second release for Fervor.
The band is playing shows, rehearsing, writing and excited to release their sixth LP in the fall of 2017.
While their early sound centered on the two-guitar attack of Babb and Steve Larson and Babb's working-class-oriented lyrics, Dead Hot Workshop was forced to reorganize following the departure of Larson in June 1997. They recorded their second album, Karma Covered Apple, as a trio.
Dead Hot Workshop continued to shift personnel. When Brian Scott left in June 1998, he was replaced by ex-Dialectis bassist Steve Flores, and second guitarist Chris "Whitey" Whitehouse, formerly of the Satellites, was added
Banana Gun’s sound is described as bluesy, jammy, eclectic, and jazzy. But, we all know that “jazzy” is a catch-all musical term too many music critics use when they don’t know how to describe a band that incorporates so many influences. Releasing their eponymous 'Banana Gun' in 2010 and then 'The Elephant in the Room' in 2012 (which was voted Top Ten Digital Download of 2012 by Amazon Music Editors), Banana Gun then toured the Southwest and California before releasing their latest album 'Love.Instinct' in March 2014. Their most recent EP, 'I and the Me' was recorded and released December 2014 as part of their five year anniversary.
Banana Gun is one of those bands that lay everything on the line for each other. Writing, recording, or playing live, they do it for each other and hopefully you’re lucky enough to be there to see it.
Formed in 2013, the members of Analog Outlaws are:
Eddie Eberle (15) Lead Vocals, Guitar and Songwriting
Alex Cantu (14) Guitar and Backup Vocals
Christian Champion (15) Drums
James "Jam" Murray (19) Bass and Backup Vocals
The group's unveiling performance at Phoenix's music venue, Joe's Grotto in June 2014, showed how their musical style engaged a diverse audience, establishing themselves as a live act. The group's momentum continued in October 2014, winning first place in the "Battle of the Bands Concert Series " presented by Gorilla Music Production and held at the World Famous Nile Theater.
