Blink-182, Bleachers, DREAMCAR, New Politics, Rituals of Mine, Element of Soul, Our People, Write or Die, The Moans, Petaluma, Iration, Bishop Briggs, Sir Sly, The Greeting Committee, Zephyr, Joyzu, John Reyes, Formless, Old Griff, and OshiIn.
Since their humble beginnings twenty-five years ago, when they started playing in a San Diego garage, ‘blink-182’ have sold over fifty million albums worldwide and rocked audiences from Adelaide to Zurich having become one of the defining rock bands of their generation.
GRAMMY® Award-winning musician Jack Antonoff is currently in the studio working on highly anticipated follow up album to Bleachers’ critically acclaimed debut album Strange Desire. The first single off Bleachers’ Strange Desire, “I Wanna Get Better,” quickly rose to No. 1 on the alt radio chart while the second single “Rollercoaster” hit #3 on the chart. USA Today called the album, “full of hooks and full of heart” and Stereogum declared it “triumphant.”
Rife with shimmering guitar tones, funky slap bass, bombastic drums, and a neon-lit dancefloor dreaminess, Dream Car gleefully nods to the decade of Boy George and Back to the Future through a kaleidoscope of wisdom earned from three decades creating and connecting with fans worldwide.
Developing his live persona and charisma as a young teen, David immersed himself in music by breakdancing as part of an internationally recognized touring dance crew. He naturally evolved into a singer, but never lost that kinetic spark while founding New Politics with Søren.
Iration is an alternative/reggae group of musicians formed in Isla Vista, CA. A deep-rooted reggae influence is fused with elements of rock and pop to create smooth original sounds – “We’re all about luv”, states the band.
Her voice has grit and heft — it is lived-in and unafraid — putting her solidly in the lineage of female vocalists such as Janis Joplin, Florence Welch, Aretha Franklin, and Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard. Bishop foregoes restraint and defies categorization, forging a path that is uniquely hers.
Since forming in 2012, Sir Sly have forged their singular sound by drawing upon each member’s long-honed musical talents: Jacobs’s introspective yet infinitely searching lyricism, Suwito’s in-studio ingenuity, and Coplen’s sophisticated musicianship and sense of songcraft.
THE GREETING COMMITTEE:
The Greeting Committee’s debut EP, titled ‘It’s Not All That Bad,’ captivated the hearts of listeners with its intelligent musicality and meaningful lyrics. “If you want smart, credible music with a raw energy that inspires, you just found it,” says Geiger.
RITUALS OF MINE:
Rituals of Mine inked a deal with Warner Bros. Records in February 2016. They worked closely with producer Wes Jones and mixing engineer Dave Clauss to make some final moves before enlisting Tom Coyne [Led Zeppelin, Adele] to master Devoted. The album represents the realization of a vision the two-piece possessed since day one.
ELEMENT OF SOUL:
Element of SouL is a high energy act with an original sound that carries a strong and positive message. EOS is a 6 piece band with a variety of instruments ranging from turntables to acoustic guitars as well as 2 vocalists. This one of a kind collaboration creates unique and infectious melodies you won’t be able to stand still to.
Hailing from Sacramento, California; Our People’s eclectic mix of Rock music with elements of funk, soul, and jazz, creates jams that make you feel good. Both former members of the Sacramento band Ten After Two, Vincent Adorno and Patrick Hennion are ready to emerge into the music world once again with an entirely new and exciting approach to the rock genre.
WRITE OR DIE:
Write Or Die is an electronic/progressive rock band helmed by Chris Karriker, Ray Bell, Scott Dunbar and Autumn Sky Hall. The band is a mixture of several heavy-weight, award-winning and cornerstone musical acts from various previous projects in the Northern Californian and Bay Area (Autumn Sky Band, Not Your Style, Saint Solitaire and Death Party On The Beach.)
For over 6 years, The Moans have been a fixture in the Sacramento music scene bringing their brand of “high-energy rock-n-roll” to venues all over the West Coast. Their live sets are noted for their quick transitions between songs and for a style of playing that the band proudly refers to as “downstrokes and eighth-notes”.
The group was founded by multi-instrumentalists Rob Habel and Patrick Sweeney. Their debut album of the same name spawned from a place of sonic exploration that results in an altogether eclectic sound. Dark, ambient, and oddly calming, Petaluma’s music is as impossible to resist as it is to pin down.
Zephyr is a DJ/Producer with a love for HipHop, Drum & Bass, Reggae, Dubstep, Trap & more. Host of Radio 94.7’s BacteriuM, you can hear him M-F at 7:49 for his morning mashups. He is a member of Element of Soul, an acoustic reggae/hiphop band, providing electronic beats, scratching & sound effects. He is also the turntablist & producer for The Good Samaritans, a live hip hop group.
Aside from their bright future with Armada Music, Joyzu has started touring all over the West Coast after playing SnowGlobe Music Festival 2016 and just debuted at their first International show in Mexico supporting Zeds Dead. They have extensive show experience and have gotten to share the stage with acts such as Krewella, Brillz, What So Not, Datsik, Skrillex, Louis The Child, Arty, Jauz, and many more.

Old Griffís musical influence is filtering down from the mountains to the valley and beyond.
Making his start in 2014 with the creation of Spectre 11, it drove him to produce quality shows while refining his sound as an artist. Since then he has continued to play at clubs like 1015 Folsom, District 30, and Ruby Skye in addition to various events in the area.
