VPO

The Venice Philharmonic Orchestra current lineup consists of Michael Jost on electric guitar, Hailey Demian on bass, Andy Kravitz on drums and Barry Conley on the OutofControl-atron.

The first use of ‘philharmonic’ was in London in 1813. An organisation was founded called the Philharmonic Society. The word ‘philharmonic’ translates to ‘music lover’. The sources I’ve found say this was taken from the French ‘philharmonoque’, but I think it is more likely that the word was taken right from the Greek. Greek is much more fashionable than French – especially if you’re living in London in 1813.

The Blood Moon Howlers

The Blood Moon Howlers are a Los Angeles based three piece heavy whiskey drenched blues rock band with flecks of smokey burlesque jazz and psychedelic tendencies.

Core members include guitarist/vocalist Matt Wayne, bassist/vocalist/keyboardist JuJu and drummer/percussion Brandon Cooke. The band began in January of 2017 and since then, they have released 2 EPs and have been playing venues all around Southern California.

They are currently recording their first full-length album set to be released in the fall of 2018 including a song that will be featured in indie short film, “Sugar Babe.”

Golden Buddha

It’s a long story …

They are the originators of the Mantra-Rock sound of the 90’s which has now infused itself into the consciousness of the new millennia.

With Teo Castro on Guitar and Vocals, Billy Stobo on Drums, and Jeffrey Dimmick on Bass, Golden Buddha becomes a mixture of ancient tones and modern sounds, interwoven with funky tribal rhythms and a hard biting edge.

  • The pulsating grooves of the bass are sensual and erotic.
  • The unrelenting drums are thunderous and melodic.
  • The soaring guitars and mystic vocals are penetrating and chaotic.

Drew Dolan

Years on the road as a nomad eventually brought Drew Dolan to the realization of his purpose: to connect people through music. This approach has combined a genuine need for cathartic creation that simultaneously draws a thread to the listener. With story-telling lyrics that are delivered with a soulful voice that travels from silky smooth to as gritty as gravel, his “true stories” matched with his keyboard playing groove their way into the ears and hearts of whoever listens.

With a style that has a firm foundation in his Chicago roots, Drew Dolan draws influences from all over the map. With hints of Bill Withers, Leon Russell, Dr. John, Ray Charles, The Meters to name a few, he bridges the gap between yesteryear and present day.

Dolan was the former lead singer/writer of The Proof., who released an EP called “Bang Bang” (leading single “Happy Street”), enjoyed success online with features on Jam in the Van and Sofar Sounds and quickly attracted a Soundcloud following that reached over 200,000 spins in less than two years. The music found a home on terrestrial radio as well on esteemed stations such as KCRW (featured release on “Morning Becomes Eclectic”) and many other non-com/college stations across the country. After years of playing some of LA’s most renowned stages (The Troubadour, The Hotel Cafe, Harvelle’s, Mrs. Fish) the band recently decided to move in different directions.

He is currently writing, playing as a soloist and collaborating with a new cast of talented musicians. Whether playing solo or with his new project “The Council,” Dolan’s sonic offering is to be experienced and shared.

Stay tuned for new releases coming out at the end of 2017!

Mr. Motes

Taking his name from the main character of Flannery O’Connor’s Wise Blood, Mr. Motes creates musical landscapes that aim to challenge norms. Landscapes that are unquestionably Christ-haunted. He is Ohio-born, Nashville-raised, and currently resides in Los Angeles, California. His songs are about divorce, parenthood, corporate jobs, student debt, and just what-the-fuck this is all supposed to mean for someone who’s only 28 years old.

Mr. Motes is heavily influenced by Radiohead, Grizzly Bear, and Jeff Buckley. He weaves odd time signatures with Biblical and mythological imagery but does so with a certain amount of grace and sincerity that makes it all relatable. At the end of the day, if you’re dancing while also questioning your perceived reality, then Mr. Motes is happy.
