Fear Itself – Pennsylvania
To imagine the power and intensity of Fear Itself, take a big hunk of Pittsburgh-style hard rock steak, basted in heavy doses of Corrosion of Conformity riffing, Guns and Roses bluesy-rock danger, Alice in Chains chording and melody and throw it all on the grill. Fire it up and take a big-ass bite.

Charlie Brechtel – California
There is a history, a legacy and a brotherhood that comprise the soul of the American biker. Those are also the elements that separate the music of Charlie Brechtel from any other musician or band who aim their talents at the motorcycling community.

With Charlie it’s all about reality. It’s about what actually goes on –and has gone on– within the inner circle of America’s last breed of folk heroes. Charlie doesn’t just play the kind of rockin’ blues that is the perfect soundtrack to this way of life.  His tribute tunes are becoming legendary. His music pays homage to the biker lifestyle in a way that no other musician has ever done. Charlie Brechtel weaves the personalities who pioneered this way of life into the heart of all of his songs. Men like Sonny Barger, Wino Willie Forkner, the Bravo Brothers…vintage bikes like the Indian…biker Meccas like Sturgis, Hollister and the Buffalo Chip…all supply the ever-sharp edge to the music of Charlie Brechtel.

 Electric Shades of Blue – Washington
With the heart and soul of the bands that have influenced them, such as Free, Cream, Led Zeppelin, Howlin’ Wolf, and John Lee Hooker, ESB has captured the essence of rock and blues. Fans of all ages are enthusiastically embracing ESB as the next band to hit the charts. With interest from major labels the band is building a solid fan base.    In 2005 the band performed at the Mount Baker Blues Festival, the Darrington Rock Festival and the Napavine Amphitheater, sharing the stage with rock and blues greats such as Ted Nugent, Dave Hole, Eric Sardinas, Incognito, David Lindley, The Fixx, Rick Derringer, Brett Michaels, and Howard Leese of Heart, who describes Kurtis as “A new young gun….the soul man.”  ESB recently signed with veteran manager Chris Crawford who states “These guys are my favorite band… next to long time friend and client Paul Rodgers of Bad Company, Free, and currently fronting Queen + Paul Rodgers.”

Dan Lawson Band – Massachusetts
DAN LAWSON does not play a guitar, the guitar tells his story of passion and soul!  Dan picked up the guitar at age four, and has since toured the United States and Canada. He has played with Blues great, Luther “Jr.”  Johnson, and Blues Brother, Matt “Guitar” Murphy to name a few.  Dan was the runner-up at the 1999 Jimi Hendrix Guitar Competition with his smoking rendition of “Red House”!  In 2002, Dan was asked to play at the “Rock to the Rescue “Concert’s. 

Dan is a frequent performer at Blues Festivals throughout North America, such as Ottawa Blues Festival, Mont Tremblant in Quebec and Axe Attack, in Calgary. Dan is a repeat performer at some of the East Coast’s largest bike rally’s including Daytona, Myrtle Beach, Laconia and more.  All this experience has culminated in the formation of the DAN LAWSON BAND….the band has just completed their debut CD effort In The “Nick” Of Time.

TrainYard – Washington
 “Breaking the misinterpretation of what Seattle music is.”  that’s what TrainYard set out to do.  They’ve brought a sense of new metal to the scene, while still staying true to what made new metal…old metal.  Killer guitar riffs, piercing screams, haunting clean vocals, and a crushing rhythm section pour forth from this Seattle-based foursome.  An unprecedented stage presence and an unparalleled live performance has kept people tuned in to TrainYard from the moment they stepped to the onto the Seattle music scene.   I saw my first show at the Buffalo Chip, and since then it’s been a dream to get to share that same stage with some more great acts,” says front man Cody Bartels, a South Dakota native.  “We’ll make sure no one thinks of anything less than metal when they think of Seattle, and this is a pretty big welcome home for me!”!

King Karma – British Columbia
Built upon the solid foundations provided by rhythm section TODD RONNING (bass) and RICK FEDYK (drums), KING KARMA’s music is a gorgeous amalgamation of hard rock guitar riffs and introspective acoustic passages. Guitarist, MARKUS WOLFE succeeds, where many more famous names have failed, in that he plays with true feel and purely for the song. To round out the line-up there’s vocalist SHAUN WILLIAMSON.  The group’s fresh approach to rock music’s most influential time in history garnered the attention of legendary producer, JIMMY JOHNSON, who flew the boys from the west coast of Canada to Muscle Shoals, Alabama and recorded the quartet’s awe-inspiring debut. Johnson even goes so far as to say that KING KARMA is the best rock product he’s worked on since Lynyrd Skynyrd back in the 70’s.
