Michael Jost

Born in Dreieich, just outside of Frankfurt Germany, guitarist Michael Jost (pronounced ‘yoast’), found his way to the bohemian Venice Beach boardwalk, in Los Angeles California, where he now lives and makes music.

Owing to Michael’s unique European heritage, his rigorous classical training, and his 21st Century American experience, you can hear something very different in his passionate, Spanish-style guitar. Michael’s travel companion is Miss Lucy, a Flamenca guitar built by Tomas Delgado of Candelas Guitars. She has a strong character, with a warm and beautiful sound.

Milo Gonzalez

Milo Gonzalez is a guitarist born of a multi-generational family of artists and musicians native to Venice Beach. With his mother being a rock vocalist, and his step father being a founding member of the renowned hardcore punk band Black Flag, Milo grew up around heavy rock music.

Inspired to play both electric and acoustic guitar, Milo discovered a deep love for ‪flamenco‬ and classical guitar music, finding it’s dark, emotive, and aggressive qualities alluring and similar to that of his rock roots. Milo has developed a unique and hard to define style of music that derives as much influence from legendary guitar virtuosos such as ‪Paco De Lucia‬, and ‪Vicente Amigo‬, as it does from rock/metal/psychedelic legends like ‪Black Sabbath‬ and ‪Radiohead‬.

Mark Rechler

CIRCUS MIND, a New Orleans-influenced funk/rock band, who released a new single just this past Friday called “Jazzfest Time”, with special guests Ivan Neville and Big Sam. The band is heading into its 20th year and working on their third release.

OUTHOUSE, an electronica lounge project with 2 releases complete and another coming out this year.

Mark has played and recorded with members of the Neville Brothers, The Meters, Soulive, Rebirth Brass Band, Eric Lindell, The Radiators and more. Mark’s music has been featured on The Discovery Network, Comedy Hall of Fame and Animal Planet.

Mark’s song topics can sometimes traverse the darker edges of space, such as drug addiction, death, shattered dreams…yet somehow manage to leave you with a little light at the end of the tunnel to grab onto. Or other times can be snarky, humorous stories with interesting characters.

The new release “Jazzfest Time” is a tribute to the best festival in the world, “The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival”, and Mark is donating all the profits from the song to The New Orleans Musician’s Clinic, to give back to his favorite city. $7500 has already been raised.
