Diego’s Umbrella

 

The Earful:

http://theearful.com/band/about

Nominated for Best Jazz Artist 2013 in the San Diego Music Awards, The Earful is a high powered, in your face, shake your booty machine that will funk you just right. Formed in late 2008, The Earful touches on various styles of the funk in all of its forms and pays tribute to the masters. Having shared the stage with amazing talent such as Soulive, Level 42, Groundation, Orgone, The Aggrolites and Les Nubians, they bring a paint peeling, barn burning intensity that is unforgettable. The all star lineup features members of The Mars Volta, The Devastators, and B-Side Players. With heavy sound of the Hammond Organ, the funky bass lines, and the stabbing brass hits of this 7 piece group are sure to get your rump bumpin’.

Folk Hogan:

Folk Hogan is a high velocity, folk/punk band with a lively stage show that is widely appealing, and downright awesome.

Desert Noises:

Press

Desert Noises

Desert Noises is Kyle Henderson, Tyler Osmond, Patrick Boyer, and Brennan Allen, four adventurers from Utah Valley, UT. Ask about their recent musical influences, and you’ll extract a litany on the riches of Tom Petty, Fleetwood Mac, and Tame Impala. If it seems an unlikely trio of choices, it simply means that you haven’t yet become acquainted with their propulsive, jangle-rich breed of rock ‘n roll. Desert Noises make music for shouting into canyons, jumping into rivers, and getting married to the wide-open road. With a strong maturity in their songwriting, they conjure the majesty of the American pastoral landscape.

While one can pick out definite strains of blues and Americana, their often-ferocious delivery and penchant for shredding guitars elicits a powerful transcendence into psychedelic rock. This is felt most strongly in their live performances, where they harness their visceral energy in new ways each night.

For more information about Folk Hogan and Ballroom Thieves, check out the following links:

http://www.newfrontiertouring.com/artist/the-ballroom-thieves/

TheBallroomThieves_main

With a slow, deliberate build, the Ballroom Thieves make their presence known onstage immediately as the first chord is struck, transforming any size room, whether it be a large ballroom or a small club, into a remarkably intimate environment.

Formed in 2011, the Ballroom Thieves take the sincere, narrative blueprint of folk music and infuse it with the attitude of rock, the soul of blues, and the sweat and fervor of a revival tent. That spirit makes its way into both their recorded music as well as their live performances, as Martin Earley (guitar, vocals), Devin Mauch (percussion, vocals), and Calin Peters (cello, vocals) attack their instruments and harmonies with the same energy onstage as in the studio.

Garnering regional and national acclaim for both of their releases to date, 2012’s The Devil And The Deep, and 2013’s self-titled EP, the Thieves have been branching out from their native Boston. Their energy, passion, and songwriting craft earning them national touring spots with established bands such as the Lone Bellow, Dispatch, Little Green Cars, the Wheeler Brothers, and Houndmouth, among others.
