Merican’ Slang
Jun 15 @ 9:00 pm – Jun 16 @ 12:00 am

 

“Something about brass and woodwind instruments that makes every Merican Slang show seem like a backstage pass to Jazz Fest in New Orleans. “Shake your ass” music does the band justice.” – Hakim Bellamy, Local IQ, “Albuquerque’s Intelligent Alternative”

Established 4/20/2011
A funk band- Super Group, Merican Slang began as a side project of members of several Albuquerque acts who came together to form a band with a truly Merican, Democratic, approach to music making. The result is a unique sound that blends Merican Funk, with Merican Southern Rock! Merican Slang has shared the stage with artists Cody ChessnuTT (The Roots), Richard Howell (Carlos Santana), and Frank Hannon (Tesla).
For booking information call: 505-307-6188

The Naughty Bits !
Jun 16 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

The Naughty Bits!

The Naughty Bits! know how to DO IT! The glam-rock influenced band who takes themselves not so seriously, takes their crowd quite seriously. Always throwing the party they’d want to go to themselves, every performance is full of medleys and mash-ups that run the gamut. From Rock n’ Roll via David Bowie era, to Funk Sly style, to bitchin’ 80’s New Wave like B-52’s. “They don’t do it anymore, but The Naughty Bits! do.”

karl jones in front of the american flagKarl Jones is from Dublin Ireland and has been living and working as a tour guide in Sedona for 4 years. He is an accomplished singer / songwriter / guitarist with radio and television appearances in both Ireland and the US to his credit.

Karl had a chance meeting with Thomas Banyacya, a Hopi Elder, in 1996 after an American concert at George Washington University in Washington DC. Thomas was on a speaking tour of the East Coast, teaching the public about Hopi spirituality and world view. Their meeting led to an invitation to Arizona to visit the Hopi Reservation, and Karl discovered Sedona along the way.

Enchanted by the experience and incredible beauty of the American Southwest, Karl relocated to Sedona from Ireland in 2002, immersing himself in the geology, history and wildlife of the Sedona area.

Attracted to the Safari Jeep Tour company because of it’s special connection to the Hopi and it’s focus on wildlife, Karl divides his time between his passion for giving Jeep tours, and promoting his debut solo CD 1916, with regular performances in Phoenix, Flagstaff, and Sedona.

Cadillac Angels

 

 

 

Growing up with no computer, cell phone, Ipod or even a television, is just not that common anymore, anywhere, but for Tony Balbinot, bandleader and singer/songwriter, guitarist for the Cadillac Angels, that’s exactly how it was. Born in a small, rural farm town in Illinois, in a house without even a television, only a radio and an old record player, Tony’s connection to the big music world was limited to WLS Radio out of Chicago and used 45 rpm records from a jukebox in a diner where his single mother was a waitress.  Musical influences varied widely from Johnny Horton to Jimmy Reed, and when his small family packed up and moved to California the spectrum widened and bloomed.  With Tony’s growing interest in electric guitar, Link Wray, Dick Dale, BB King, and John Fogerty began to heat up his second hand stereo and his fingers.

Midwestern roots combined with a western migration spawned the guitar driven  musical and songwriting style that makes the Cadillac Angels music so special. Now, with over a million miles of touring, and over ten full length original CDs, the band has toured most of the USA and over seven countries in Great Britain and Western Europe. Their first recordings won them “Best Roots Demo” at Austin’s prestigious South by Southwest Music Conference, and their songs have been featured in major full length films as well as commercials.

The Gretsch Guitar Company recognized Tony’s talents and awarded him an artists endorsement. He was invited to perform at Gretsch’s 125th year anniversary celebration, where he shared the stage with legends, Dick Dale, Billy Gibbons, and Jimmie Vaughn.  Tony’s picture now hangs in the Gretsch Hall of Fame in Scottsdale, AZ right between Chet Atkins and Brian Jones. Not bad for a country boy from Illinois!

The Cadillac Angels have never caved to musical fads or commercial pressure. They have elected to remain a trio, feeling that the honest sound of one electric guitar, bass and basic drums best suits the integrity of their style…a style born out of the American heartland, traveling the world, yet still their music rings true Rock and Roll…American music.

OvO – Tommy Rocks & Joe Berger
Jun 29 @ 9:00 pm – Jun 30 @ 12:00 am
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”.

The Bellwethers
Jul 6 @ 2:00 pm – 6:00 pm

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.

Invincible Grins :)

Born in the Verde Valley of Arizona, The Invincible Grins fuse eclecticism with unbridled enthusiasm, creating a unique and danceable style of sweaty rock and roll. Marrying strong and original songwriting with undeniable groove, the Grins draw inspiration from such artists as Tom Waits, Woody Guthrie, Andrew Bird, Talking Heads, Morphine, and Goran Bregovic, and have also been accused of sounding like “Gogol Bordello meets Fleetwood Mac.” Their music has been described as “funked-up folk”, “Gypsybilly”, and simply, “…like fun!” No matter what moniker is applied, one thing is for sure: The Invincible Grins are upbeat music for a beat up world. They remind you to have a drink and dance. Take it easy. Brace yourself. Everything’s gonna be alright!

well dressed wolves band photoThe WDW are rock group, based out of Phoenix, AZ. Originally formed in 2004, the band consists of Travis Eaton (guitar, vocals), Louis Occhiline (bass, vocals), & Gabe Rhodes (drums, vocals).

Travis Eaton, Guitarist and vocalist, began playing music around the age of four. Originally inspired by country music, he was exposed to rock ‘n’ roll after seeing a clip of the Beatles performing “All My Loving” on the Ed Sullivan Show. When he was ten, as a tribute to the Beatles, he began performing in a band called the Moptops as well as playing classical guitar in competition for the Verde Valley Music Association. Later he found himself playing with the band Recall alongside future band member Gabriel Rhodes.

Gabriel Rhodes has been playing drums for approximately 21 years. He is the son of Arizona Blues Hall of Famer Danny Rhodes. At age 11, along with playing drums for his father, he has been part of bands Recall, Heavy Soul, and Denarius. In 2004, after having exhausted all other musical ventures, Eaton and Rhodes began playing with a friend of Eaton, Louis Occhiline.

Louis Occhiline was born into a large musical family. He started playing the bass at seventeen. There had been a shortage of bassists, so he learned the basics of the instrument. He played with Eaton in a band called Frequency Response. The band split in early 2004. Over the past few years, Occhiline has developed his music by trying to apply the bass styles of John Entwistle of The Who and Paul McCartney to his own.

They began playing in Rhodes’ garage in the summer of 2004. They quickly found a chemistry that had been lacking in their previous bands. They were united by the influences of ’60s rock as well as the ’90s alternative.
