MICHAEL MUSIKA "Michael’s sound is rustic, almost gypsy-like, but it maintains a sense of innocence that is unlike most everything you’ve heard before. His fellow bandmates, mostly friends who play in other projects as well (Matt Adams of Blank Tapes, Eric Kuhn of Silian Rail and Brian Gorman of Tartufi to name a few), helped shape the sound of the album. One senses from their involvement that Musika’s really trying to promote that music, both performing and consuming, is meant to be fun and communal, something to bring us together as performers and spectators. While writing the music for his new album, Musika handed each performer a script with an assigned character, from which each was to figure out the particular sound for their part." -- Bay Bridged http://myspace.com/michaelmusika
LOYD FAMILY PLAYERS With influences ranging from Carlinhos Brown to Rage Against the Machine, the Loyds mix together a bevy of breaks and textures with great precision for a hot and furious dance party. Utilizing everything from sultry R&B covers to tongue-in-cheek punk rock singalongs, the Loyds will whip the dance floor into a frenzy and turn you into a dashboard drummer for days on end."Combining elements of samba, hip-hop, funk, heavy metal, dancehall & reggae, this 8 to 14 piece non-traditional bateria has quickly earned a reputation as one of Oakland California's most raucous and jubilant party bands." --SF Bay Guardian. http://theloydfamilyplayers.com
QUINN DEVEAUX & THE BLUE BEAT REVIEW Quinn DeVeaux and The Blue Beat Review is the dance floor between the sweet old times and new hard times.
