FOXY SHAZAM
FOXY SHAZAM
Foxy Shazam has never been good at following the rules, but the latest chapter in their rollercoaster tale is undoubtedly the most groundbreaking. Exploring musical territory only hinted at in previous releases, the band's latest album GONZO depicts Foxy Shazam in their most penetrating and exposed form. It is at once this phenomenal band's most soothing, searing, heavy, biting, dreamy, and generally jarring statement to date, in a career built upon unorthodoxy. Prepare yourself for Foxy Shazam in their most penetrating and exposed form, their characteristic grandiosity clearly evident but captured in a severe new light.
STOP LIGHT OBSERVATIONS
STOP LIGHT OBSERVATIONS
Charleston, South Carolina home-grown artist Stop Light Observations, also known as SLO started playing together at the young age of 13 when songwriter, and pianist John-Keith Culbreth asked guitarist Louis Duffie the iconic teenager a question... "wanna start a band?" Through the young years of focusing on writing great songs, the young duo picked up childhood friend Luke Withers(drums), and Will Blackburn(vocals). Over time the adding of Coleman Sawyer on bass and fiddle, and Wyatt Garey on lead guitar, formulated the power-dynamic six piece rock group know as Stop Light Observations.

Stop Light Observations plays a unique style described as Southern-Retro-Electro-Rock with influences of ; Classic Rock N' Roll, Indie, Motown, Hip-hop and Folk, Revival, Psychedelic, Garage, and Arena Rock. They claim their drive is the fun and spirit of performing and creating great songs, but most of all the camaraderie that is shared with this group of life long southern friends. The truly unique band Stop Light Observations plans on furthering their impact on the national level and having some fun while creating an awakening with their passion and art.

From playing Bonnaroo Music Festival, Selling out premier music venues, playing AAA radio, and releasing their new album titled 'Radiation,' Stop Light Observations is making a fast growth in the music industry.
CAPTAIN SQUEEGEE
CAPTAIN SQUEEGEE
"The Gods of Music are not dead! They are coming out of retirement for this young group brimming with talent, enthusiasm, and freshness" (French Critic, Jean-Philip Hauuse). With a tremendous seven-member sound, Captain Squeegee leads a legacy to bend the boundaries of music and offer a mind-blowing experience... sonically, visually, & conceptually. Since their mysterious formation in 2003, they allowed fate to arrange their line-up which kept no original members, and assembled the power-house horn section that defines them today. Captain Squeegee has since performed hundreds of shows, dozens of festivals, released three albums, and manifested multiple music videos. Squeegee's instrumentations and orchestrations have been described as "Fantasia music, with lead singer Danny Torgersen making like Mickey in a swirling maelstrom of flying horns, dancing guitars, broken melodies, and mad-prophet vocalizing" (Phoenix New Times)

Even before their internationally acclaimed full length, Nothing vs Everything (2008), the band had been touring across the southwest, surprising audiences with their unique sound and theatrical live shows, where members are constantly switching instruments & interactive graphics are often projected. With a strong fan-base, and no genre, the band was able to share the stage with main acts like Ludo, The Aquabats, The Ginblossoms, Streetlight Manifesto, As Tall As Lions, and The Cherry Poppin' Daddies... further earning them slots at Edgefest, Tempe Music Festival, & Warped Tour. They were even awarded "Best album of 2008" and "Best hope of 2009" by French web-zine, Progressia, which helped spread the music to Europe and Beyond...

Last year the group paired up with the "Lucidity Web-Saga" as actors and musicians, even writing it's theme song, "Your Own Invention", which they recorded in a pyramid. They now draw large crowds at home, where elaborate shows are themed toward political activism, audience psychic-experimentation, the future, and even The G-20 Summit... "but unpredictable and uncalled for are what Captain Squeegee specializes in." (Pop'Stache Rebiew)

In response to the zombie infested waters of the mainstream, Squeegee will continue to offer a new perspective, driving their fans and future fans to open the mind's eye (and ear)... to "See More Clearly".
