Peaceful Outlaws

 

8 years ago in Berks County, PA, artist Dani Fisher answered a craigslist post about playing music. Soon thereafter, a five piece Americana/Folk/Bluegrassy/blues band rocked their way around.
After 4 years apart, Fisher and Strock have reunited in Preskitt, with more experience, originals and feeling. They are gearing up to play wherever and whenever the music takes them.
Catch them at Spirit Room Aug 17th 9-12!

 

The Fey

Spirit Room presents The Fey, a new musical styling from local duo Jonsey & Winter. Brings to mind The Cranberries & The Velvet Underground. Raw, authentic & refreshing. Cheers.

::: Gold Shimmer :::

 

Gold Shimmer is an independent LA based electro-soul band.  It is a surrealist collaboration led by songwriter Jeff Venter on vocals alongside Artyone Turner on synth and Mitchell Manburg on lead guitar.  Influenced by The Doors, the Gorillaz, and Earth, Wind, and Fire they can  groove, get weird, and vibe out.  Driven by a curiosity of music’s limitations, nontraditional narrative, and theatrics the trio aims to take their audience for a ride through another time and dimension.

The group began playing together in Spring 2017 as part a different band. After some time collaborating and performing together, Venter, Manburg, and Turner had a greater vision and reformed as “Gold Shimmer” the following year.

“We created a full back story with personas for ourselves. We thought long and hard about who we wanted to be on stage and put clear intention into every show, every song, every note. We wanted our art to extend beyond music,” remarks Manburg (of the reformation).

Their debut EP, “The Temple of Solace Pt. 1”, took launch in September of that year and the band found themselves playing notable LA venues such as The Satellite, The Peppermint Club, Silverlake Lounge, Federal Bar, upon many others. Currently, the band is busy performing regionally promoting their single and video, “Night Heat”, released 2019.

The Bellwethers

The Bellwethers Since hitting the Phoenix music scene in 2010, The Bellwethers consistently perform edgy, high-energy, blues-fueled rock that light up stages across the Southwest. Gigging everywhere from dive bars to marquee venues, the band boasts a collective dynamic of talented musicians originating from the East and West coasts.

An assemblage of music veterans, the band features Fran Scianna, Dan Scianna & Kim Dangerous of The Sciannas, Bill Stimson of Jonestown, and drum lord, Corey Plueard. Combining a broad brush of music styles combined with thought-provoking lyrics, the band cranks out soulful beats resulting in an artistic signature that is making them one of the Southwest’s must-see acts. With influences ranging from Pink Floyd to Bob Dylan to the Rolling Stones, the Bellwethers weave their way through multiple genres, belting out powerful performances underneath the bright desert lights.

Anyone who has seen the band perform is well aware of their incendiary live shows. Think blues, psychedelic, punk and classic 70’s-era rock tossed into a blender and turned on high. The band continues to expand its horizons, gaining new fans at each performance and generating enthusiastic reviews. The band’s original music has been featured on radio & internet stations around the globe. A community-minded group, they regularly play benefits for various charity organizations, with a commitment to supporting Cancer and childhood disease causes.

OvO – Tommy Rocks & Joe Berger

OvO Band Jerome, AZ
 It’s rare when guitar heroes come through Arizona, nevermind Jerome, so be sure not to miss the electric rock band OvO (The Owl Band) as they record a live album at the Spirit Room on Saturday, June 29th. Come get wild and participate in the recording as the band belts out hard-driving rock anthems at the Spirit Room that night from 9 to midnight.
 The band is made of professional musicians who live in different parts of the country but reunite for this special show. Most of the band went to high school together at Agua Fria High School in Avondale AZ ( “The Agua Fria ‘Owls’ “), a school which also produced other amazing musicians.
Burning down the house will be guitar phenom Joe Berger of New York City on lead guitar, Tommy ‘Rocks’ Anderson of Jerome on lead vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, Kyle Scarborough from Houston (TX) on keys, Pablo Richards (FL) on bass, and John F. Kennedy (AZ) on drums.
 OvO formed ten years ago in Phoenix, and they perform in Arizona twice a year following the NAMM music convention shows, first in Phoenix on Super Bowl weekend, and then again in the Verde Valley area in late June. The band has been joined onstage in the past by Grammy award-winning producer and guitarist Larry Mitchell. Guitarist Joe Berger has many sponsorships and has his own signature model guitar, “The Wildman,” created by JJ Guitars in England. Joe Berger is a well-known musician in New York City, is a “world class guitar player” and just finished playing in Tokyo, Japan, Germany, and Norway.
 For more than four decades, Joe has mixed sound or shared the stage with artists including John Entwistle (WHO), Jack Bruce (CREAM), Leslie West (MOUNTAIN), Vangelis, Jon Anderson (YES), Billy Cobham, Jon Hammond, Lee Oskar (WAR), Brian Johnson & Cliff Williams (AC/DC), Cheap Trick and thousands more.
OvO performs the obscure hits of some of the world’s biggest bands, covering songs by The Who, Santana, Warren Zevon, Frank Zappa, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Supertramp, Elton John, Jimi Hendrix, and The Beatles.
As a special treat, the Owls will be playing a couple of Dr. John songs in memory of the famous musician who just passed away. There will also be rockin’ guitar songs by Sugarloaf, Jeff Beck, Thin Lizzy, and Joe Cocker songs in the Spirit Room Show.
 “Doctor” Kyle Scarborough has been playing keyboards in the Houston area for the past 25 years, prescribing his blend of blues, country, and rock & roll all over Texas every chance he gets. He currently plays with Different Beast, providing entertainment in festivals and music venues throughout the Houston area.
Paul “Pablo” Richards is a bassist, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist who has been a professional musician since coming of age in his Phoenix Valley stomping grounds. He performed with Tommy Anderson in the Beatles band “Ringo McLennonSon”; he now lives and appears in venues on the beaches of Florida with some of the top names on the Florida coast.
 Drummer John F. Kennedy (“JFK”), like the other members of the band, has also been a working musician since childhood. For the last twenty years, he has played drums in several variety bands in the White Mountains of Arizona, including Rim Rockers, Backbeat and Siringo. He has known Joe, Kyle and Pablo since high school.
Singer Tommy Anderson, aka “Tommy Rocks,” (www.TommyRocks.net) is a well-known entertainer in Arizona, both as a solo acoustic rock performer, as well as with his side projects the Jerome Ukulele Orchestra, B3, The Beatless, the Tommy Rocks Trio and OvO. Tommy is best known as a singer, guitarist, bassist and ukulele player who performs heavily in the area, and is known for his Beatles show on the final Friday of each month at Vino Di Sedona. On top of performing nearly 150 nights last year, Tommy owns a recording studio and also a music store in Jerome called “Tommy Rocks”.
