Aggressive Rock

Get ready for a shot of hard rock with Snakeskyn Whiskey!

March 27, 2013

Do you remember the first time you were at a concert and you were blown away by the opening band? Like seriously just excited to find out more about them and to get hooked on their music? Well that is what it was like for many fans who went out to see CrashDiet at the DNA Lounge in San Francisco this past Monday (March 25, 2013).  Out on tour with CrashDiet and opening up for them that night were the hard rockers from Montreal, Canada, Snakeskyn Whiskey. These four guys deliver in your face aggressive rock and roll with non stop energy.  If you have ever been to the top of the DNA Lounge, you will know what I am talking about when I tell you how they dominated that small stage with their big sound. We had the chance to sit down with  Snakeskyn Whiskey before the show and they told us about how diverse the music scene is in Montreal and how the different genres of music compete for the shows at the music venues.

Revolver Golden Gods Awards 2013 Viewing Party Guide

March 13, 2013

Party Planning Guide for Revolver Golden Gods Awards 2013! As you know from my recent post about the Oscars, we don’t throw parties to watch the award shows unless it is the Revolver Golden Gods Awards. Well, with the awards being only 6+ weeks ago, we have to get started in planning your perfect Revolver Golden Gods Awards Viewing Party!  The date for the show is May 2, 2013. 4 to 5 Weeks before your party Make an Invitation List. Here is where you have to really tailor your list to the right audience. When you are drawing up your list of names; ask yourself some questions about the guests so you know you are targeting the right guests. The last thing you want at your party is someone asking over and over is Kanye going to sing?,  or Who is Metallica? or even worse, what is this Revolver thing – thought it was a gun??? Time to show them the door and you may want to rethink them as your friend at that point!! [Read More]

While She Waits inks a deal with TMG Records for their new album

March 6, 2013

  While She Waits joins the TMG Records family. It has only been a couple months since I first introduced you to the awesome new rock band, While She Waits  from Phoenix, Arizona. In that short amount of time, so many great things have been happening for them. They just recently announced inking a record deal with TMG Records.  Their new album is planned to hit major music retails such as Walmart, Best Buy, etc by the end of this year. Luke Johns, TMG Records A&R representative, explains what caught their ear about the band,  “What stands out to us about WHILE SHE WAITS is their great alternative and classic rock sound, but more than anything, we love their energy. We get hundreds of submissions every week from bands wanting us to check them out, but what’s really unique about WHILE SHE WAITS, beyond what we normally hear and even beyond what’s popular right in hard rock right now, is that their music hits hard and never stops. The music is intelligent, well written and really [Read More]

Get to know Justin Emord of Love and a .38

March 5, 2013

I have been enjoying the new song “Just a Woman” by one of my favorite bands, Love and a .38. I know I have told you about them several times before (featured as one of our 12 Days of Rock Christmas) and I hope by now, you all have added their music to your playlists especially “Rock ‘n Lola” and “Lovely Lies”. These rockers are some of the hardest working guys in the business that are on a mission to deliver that much needed rock sound that we have all been missing and craving! They are not only working on their new album, but have been kicking ass performing shows in LA as well as heading out to SXSW later this week. Before they head out to their next show, we were able to catch up with their incredibly talented, high energy bassist Justin Emord. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * Music Junkie Press: Thanks Justin for taking time out with us at Music Junkie Press.

Get Ready…. Sunset Riot is coming to ROCK the USA

March 1, 2013

Rocklahoma 2013 Band Feature The next band I am featuring from the Rocklahoma 2013 lineup is a band that my son Rockin Ryan told me about, sort of. He was actually keeping this band a secret for a while teasing me with the incredible rock sound that they bring. I would hear bits of songs that he would be playing in the garage and would have to ask over and over who they were. They just reminded me of my fun times on the Sunset Strip in the 80’s and I wanted to know if they were a new or an old band that I had missed. Then it happened, he left his headphones down for a second and I grabbed them and savored what I was hearing. It was truly like ear porn! I was in heaven as I could hear classic 80’s style shredding riffs, catchy melody and the vocals… let me tell you about the vocals. I swear it was like hearing a young crisp David Lee Roth. I looked down at [Read More]

Make Nasty Habit your new habit!

February 25, 2013

Rocklahoma 2013 Band Feature I have a great new Nasty Habit for you and it will ROCK your World! I am talking about four young guys from New York who are on a mission to bring back Rock and Roll. With their Rock and Roll passion prevalent throughout their rockin songs like “Heart Breakin, Hip Shakin”, “Saturday Night”, and ‘Tripped” it is no wonder they are a part of Rocklahoma 2013!  Nasty Habit has Tommy Ende on lead vocals, Kenny Ende on guitar, David Jordan on drums, and Frankie Wheeler on bass. When I hear a band like Nasty Habit, I completely renew my faith in the younger generation to keep true rock and roll alive. Nasty Habit will make sure that Rock and Roll is here to stay! They have my favorite sounds from the ’80s which I love. They kind of remind me of a mix of White Lion/Poison and with the groove of Bullet Boys! These guys are going to blow your mind away as you take a listen and think you are [Read More]
