Y & T
Y & T
Before Motley Crue, before RATT, even before there was a Metallica, when Y&T formed in the early 1970s, they set the standard for hard rock bands that trailed. Many of the most popular heavy rock bands of the '80s, at the birth of their careers, opened shows for headliners Y&T; and they all cut their teeth on Y&T, as evidenced by the Y&T mentions in the tell-all books by acts such as Metallica and Motley Crue. Hailing from the East Bay, Y&T is one of the San Francisco Bay Area's own innovators of the hard rock sound. World-renowned headliners on their own, for years Y&T remained the most requested supporting act on the hard rock road, touring with rock icons including Ozzy Osbourne, AC/DC, Aerosmith, and Motley Crue.

Y&T was always sure-fired to whip the crowd into a frenzy with their high energy set, performing to overflow houses of fifteen to sixty-thousand across the U.S. at home, as well as in Japan, Europe, and the UK. Even today, thirty-plus years after the band first formed, the call of Y&T's fans has never silenced.
Dave Meniketti (lead guitar/lead vocals), Phil Kennemore (bass), Leonard Haze (drums), and Joey Alves (rhythm guitar) charged through the '70s and into the '80s with their San Francisco Bay Area brand of hard rock music. After two '70s albums on London Records, a new record deal in 1980 with A&M Records prompted the band to shorten their moniker, and encores with fans chanting Y&T, Y&T, Y&T sealed the condensed name. The '80s brought several changes, including Jimmy DeGrasso (Alice Cooper, Suicidal Tendencies, Megadeth) on drums and Stef Burns (Alice Cooper, Berlin, Huey Lewis) on guitar. And today, three decades later, Y&T's legions of fans are still as captivated by the band's melodic heavy rock-n-roll as they were yesterday, proving Y&T's music timeless.

Y&T's 1985 hit Summertime Girls received tremendous airplay worldwide, played frequently in the BAYWATCH television series and several feature films, remained at length in heavy rotation on MTV as well as MTV's top video playlists, and the hit song plays on today in regular airplay on classic rock radio stations throughout the country alongside other Y&T hits. Y&T songs grace the soundtracks of numerous movies and television shows, and their popular videos, such as Lipstick & Leather, Don't Stop Runnin', Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, andSummertime Girls, are still featured videos on VH1 today.
Chemicals Of Democracy
Chemicals Of Democracy
Hot off their UK debut and electrifying performance at Hammerfest IV, Phoenix, Arizona natives "Chemicals Of Democracy" have released their inaugural Dark Lord Records album 'The American Scream' in April 2012. Produced by the band and the Grammy-nominated Chris Tsangarides (Judas Priest, Anvil, Depeche Mode, Exodus, Bruce Dickinson) the record and their live show has already garnered a huge response from the media including Classic Rock Magazine, Hard Rock Radio, Planet Mosh, Phoenix Radio. Their triple axe onslaught fuses the pommeling riffage of thrash mavericks Metallica and the juicy melodic leads trademarked by Iron Maiden into the modern approach of bands like Bullet For My Valentine. Catchy choruses, mega hooks and vocals you can't forget make 'The American Scream' an effort bound to turn heads across the metal spectrum.
Dagger
Dagger
Dagger is a original "Live Arena Concert Rock Band" that sets the precedence to bring a very unique sound and high stage animation in their performances reminiscent to the high-energy, hard-rocking genre of bands that dominated the world of music in the 80's and 90's but with modern twist.

Echofuzz
Echofuzz
“Never lose faith in real rock n roll music. You may have to look a little harder, but it’s always going to be there.”---Dave Grohl

Echofuzz is straight ahead Rock N Roll. The 5 piece band from Phoenix Arizona has a wide variety of influences that come through in their music. From the guitar driven arrangements with hard hitting, groove laden rhythms and powerful, yet soulful vocals you’ll find hints of classic, 80’s, 90’s and modern rock.

The band writes original rock music with a distinct human element that gives their songs a certain feeling and emotion that draws the listener in and reminds them of what they love about rock music and gets them excited about where it’s going.

To the rock n roll fan, there’s no sweeter sound than a powerful voice riding the wave of thunderous drums and a Les Paul screaming through a Marshall stack.
That’s what you get with Echofuzz.
