21 years and counting.........

That's a long time to be on the planet, let alone in a band. Thunderosa is a cosmic entity. A driving force in all that is righteous and true in the universe of rock and roll! Started back in Tucson, Arizona in 1997, with the help of a few friends, we managed to crank out a few hundred shows, a couple tours and a cassette between the years of 1997 and 2000. 2000 found us back in Syracuse, NY, a town in desperate need of the Thunderosa nitro fueled injection! Once again, a few close friends rallied around us and we got this train rolling. Between 2000 and 2004,we managed to crank out multiple tours, hundreds of shows, 1 CD and tracks on multiple compilations. We made some amazing friends and played with some amazing bands; Southern Culture on the Skids, Reverend Horton Heat, HankIII , Nashville Pussy,ZEKE, Supersuckers, Chevelle, Head PE, Nine Pound Hammer, Fuel, Vince Neil, Truckadelic, Social Distortion, Ted Nugent, Skid Row, Twisted Sister, Doobie Brothers(yeah,those doobie brothers) and many, many others. We made a good run at it and once again cemented the Thunderosa brand in multiple brains and ears. 2005 found us in Austin, Texas. We figured the band was over and 8 years was a good run. Well we were wrong! People recognized the both of us at SXSW and that was all it took to kick the beast back into gear again. It was only a matter of time until we found some folks to get in the squared circle with us, again. Long story short, here we are in 2018....1000's of shows,10's of thousands of miles, multiple national tours,4 cds and many a weary ex-band member later, Thunderosa is still cranking out the hits. Older,wiser(?)a little slower to get up in the morning, but always ready to fight the good fight. 100%pure rock and roll stomp laid out at every show! Gazillions of miles under our belt and thousands of great friends, family and fans! We're ready for thousands more! Come on and join us! It's all good. We love y'all! You're on the list......THUNDEROSA FOREVER,FOREVER

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
"I'm not sure what I'd label my music as. People ask what kind of music do you play and I say I don't really know. I love folk music and storytelling I guess it's just rock and roll." -Rod Melancon

If last year's EP, LA 14, gave us a taste of Rod Melancon's own darkly lit pilgrim's path as an artist and a writer, then his new full album release appropriately finds him taking root with the title, Southern Gothic, as he takes us further into the light and darkness of his own poetic vision based on tales of the people of his South Louisiana homeland. The album is further evidence that confirms the arrival of an important new artist on the horizon of the Americana music movement that has been sweeping the country charts.

Southern Gothic is a journey into the dark-and often twisted-night of the soul. It is the restless yearning of a young, new South that has been represented by The Drive By Truckers, Sturgill Simpson and Jason Isbell. With this fine new album, Melancon finds himself in their company and ready to take his well-deserved seat in the congregation as one of the finest Americana artists out today.

Just as Johnny Cash captured the Arkansas of his childhood and Springsteen brought Asbury Park alive for millions, Rod Melancon has brought the sound and feeling of South Louisiana's storied towns filled with conflicted characters. The sound is driven with a raucous blues that would make Lead Belly feel at home. Rod grew up in the shadow of Angola State Prison where the great bluesman made his home for many years.

On this cycle of songs, that sometimes plays like stories of his favorite author, Larry Brown, Melancon takes us deep in the swamp lands of South Louisiana, found in the bayous and small towns along the parish lines and the borders that dwell with the native sons of this often, unseen heartland where the stories wait to be told. There are ghosts to conjure up in the night fires and bayou jamborees. It takes a special artist to conjure up the soul of the land through song and story. It takes an artist possessed of a singular vision: Welcome to the world of Southern Gothic. It is a world that is uniquely Rod Melancon.

If the finest artists write what they know, then with Southern Gothic Melancon has not only written what he is intimately familiar with, he also gives us a portrait of his love for the land of his childhood and the souls he has encountered during his lifetime. There are songs here that reflect the restlessness of the heartland ("Promises") alongside the In-Cold-Blood feel of the yearnings of a serial killer ("With the Devil"). Then, he and producer Brian Whelan, change things up as they allow the listener to come up for air on grungy raunch & roll rockers like "Redhead" and an update of Buddy Holly by way of Bob Dylan on "Mary Lou."

He and Whelan brilliantly segue the solid roots of rock 'n' roll and R&B into serious industrial metal-fused psychedelic music on songs like "Lights of Carencro" and the rage-filled anti-war anthem, "Different Man," re-created here, from the Parish Lines album, to new heights.

Southern Gothic represents the diverse experiences of an old soul inside the music of a young new talent. On this album, Rod Melancon takes an unflinching look inside the heart of Americana darkness as he stylistically drives deeper into the roots of his own imagination nurtured in the badlands and bayous of his home.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Three Chords And A Cloud Of Dust...

The Georgia Satellites were one of the most ferocious bands of the 80's. What set them apart from the other 100,000 bands who cranked their amps up to eleven was that their wild riffs and tanked up cries came from a band who, from the start, understood it's place in the rock tradition and fought hard to solidify it with each recording.

The story starts in the early 80's at Hedgen's, a "country club for the spiritually impoverished and emotionally destitute" as chief songwriter Dan Baird would later identify it. Bassist Keith Christopher, drummer Mauro Magellan and guitarists Dan Baird and Rick Richards were all playing on the Atlanta circuit in various bar bands such as The Hellhounds, The Brains and The Woodpeckers. These bands would gradually morph into the original Georgia Satellites, who signed to same the same management company as country-rock pioneers, Jason & The Scorchers, more of whom later.

#1 fan and road manager Kevin Jennings, sold an EP of early Satellites records to an independent UK record label, Making Waves, who released them as the Keep The Faith ep. The ep provoked an extraordinary response from the UK music press, which, in turn, woke up the previously indifferent US music industry. Elektra records quickly signed them and their first single, Keep Your Hands To Yourself, became a runaway hit. It reached #2 on the singles chart and their eponymous debut album reached the same position on the album charts. Both album and single only being kept off their respective #1 slots by Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet and Livin' On A Prayer. A second hit single, Battleship Chains consolidated their success.

Where the Satellites really earned their reputation though, was with their live shows. All those years of three sets a night, paid dividends laid waste to audiences across the States and particular, Europe, which took the band to it's collective heart, a love affair that continues to this day.

Two more Elekra LP's, Open All Night and the remarkable In The Land Of Salvation And Sin, plus a cover of The Singing Blue Jeans, Hippy Hippy Shake, on the Tom Cruise movie soundtrack, Cocktail followed, but by the early 90's, all those years of incessant touring had taken their toll and the band split. Dan Baird went on to a successful solo career with Rick Rubin's Def American, scoring major hits with the album Love Songs From The Hearing Impaired and the single I Love You Period. A second LP, the critically acclaimed Buffalo Nickel followed and Dan also developed as a career as a highly sought after producer.

The rhythm section on both solo albums were Keith Christopher (bass) and former Georgia Satellites drummer Mauro Magellan, the duo responsible for a large part of Dan's trademark sound.

Jump to 2007 and the band was completed by Jason And The Scorchers founder member and guitarist extraordinaire, Warner E. Hodges. The quartet released their debut album in 2008, championed by Alan Jones (Uncut), Scott Rowley (Classic Rock) and Bob Harris.

The band appeared at the Sweden Rock festival in 2009 and Hard Rock Hell in 2011 and 2012. In 2012 they headlined the prestigious Kilkenny Festival in Ireland. They have established an annual series of concerts in London that attract fans from all around the world.

In 2013, Circus Life, the long awaited follow up to the debut album, was released and attracted great reviews across Europe. The album was also their first CD to get a full USA release and their first album to album to appear as a vinyl release.

2014 saw long term bassist Keith Christopher replaced by ex Bonafide man Micke Nilsson as their touring schedule stepped up, seeing shows in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, Germany, Netherlands, Ireland, UK and USA. The last night of the 2014 tour will see the band play their first ever acoustic show before a sold out London audience.

"At the lonesome crossroads where country and metal intersect, stand two swaggering badasses holding acoustic guitars. They're not interested in your soul they have plenty of soul already." ~ Kevin Kurtain

Cult favorites WhiskeyDick blow minds with a double barrel blast of dreadnaught shredding and hillbilly bellowing that makes you want to knock back a shot, stand up tall, and holler "Oh-Hell-YeeHaw!"

The Fort Worth duo carry on the Texas traditions of super-powered guitar slinging and clever songwriting that make lone star music a worldwide curiosity, except Reverend Johnson will remind you more of Dimebag Darrell than Billy Gibbons and Fritz remains more lyrically akin to David Allen Coe than Robert Earl Keen.

WhiskeyDick's live show is a true spectacle: two giant, tattooed, mean-looking dudes saunter on stage and sit down on 2 chairs, then pick up acoustic guitars and proceed to amaze everyone by generating more power than a full band by means of Fritz's deep, rich vocals, Johnson's unapproachable acoustic guitar heroics, and their triumphant songwriting.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Since the 2005 release of his debut album, Mississippi-bred singer/guitarist Jason Eady has brought a rare balance of unguarded honesty and poetic sophistication to his songwriting. With his catalog spanning from blues-infused Americana to bare-bones reimagining of classic country, Eady's seventh full-length takes on a looser, livelier, more groove-driven sound than ever before. But while I Travel On brims with a feel-good spontaneity, the Fort Worth-based artist continues to instill each song with the subtle insight and emotional depth that makes his music so powerful.

The follow-up to his 2017 self-titled effort, I Travel On marks the first time that Eady's recorded an album with his road band-a lineup whose rhythm section is made up of musicians from an R&B/roots background, and whose lead players hail from the bluegrass world. With Grammy Award-nominated duo Rob Ickes and Trey Hensley joining them in the studio, I Travel On wholly captures the unbridled energy and kinetic camaraderie that the band's recently displayed in their relentless touring and in sharing stages with the likes of Sturgill Simpson.

"One of the best things about making this album is that it was all done live-just six guys with acoustic instruments sitting in a room together, playing these songs we'd been working out for a while on the road," says Eady. "It was a much different and more organic process than hiring studio musicians and then making an album right after you've met each other."
In another departure from his previous work (including 2014's critically lauded Daylight & Dark and 2012's AM Country Heaven, a top 40 debut on Billboard's Top Country Albums chart), Eady wrote most of I Travel On in a month-long burst of creativity. "Normally I take my pick of the songs I've come up with since the last album, but this time I was writing specifically for this record," he says. "And because the album's so groove-centered, I focused on the way words rolled off the tongue and how they moved with the music. If something felt good to sing, I just let it be instead of going back and editing myself like I might've done in the past."

It was the Year of Our Lord 2013, and I was
devouring a cheeseburger in a Chatsworth, CA
franchise of a certain multinational fast food
conglomerate which shall remain nameless. A crazed
skull face painted, dirt-bag, clown sat down beside
me. This Skeletor reject of Uriah Heap introduced
himself as Ronald Osborne and was familiar with my
work. I was informed that Ronald, Slayer Mac
Cheeze, Grimalice, and the Cat Burglar, were
performing secret rock shows in the bunker-like
basements of the local restaurants. But the time had
come, he said, to bring drive-thru metal up from the
"underground," and he asked if I would consider
becoming the manager. BAM! Abruptly we were
thrown to the sidewalk. (Apparently the daytime
manager was not informed of this activity) I looked
over at Ronald, watched him brush off the sodium
chloride and GMO remnants of my UN happy meal.

Before I knew it, I was in a burger stand bomb
shelter, witnessing Black Sabbath music, hilarious
fast food lyrics, smoldering clown heads with laser
eyes, a giant purple gumdrop bass player, and Tony
Iommi with a giant cheeseburger head. I was
confused, amazed and can't ever remember feeling
so.........happy!

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Forged in the hills of Kentucky and tempered in the mountains of Colorado, Saddle of Southern Darkness is rapidly carving a path across the country to deliver you a sound as tenebrous as it is true.


"The Southern country Twang is evident straightaway in the guitar playing style on the opening track 'Compelled To Dig' and this element is carried throughout the album as one of the core features in the band's sound. Metal heads aren't typically into country music, but brothers, Trent and Chase Williams sure are, and they do their best to turn metal loving listeners onto country with the clean-old-school metal style of vocals and the dark undertones metal heads may easily identify and relate to."

- Andrew Bansal ( Metal Assault )



Armed with backwood river bottom folklore, brothers Chase and Trent Williams (KY) have assimilated bassist Mark Rossi (CO) and percussionist Rob Van Natta (CO) to complete their sonorous construct.



"What started as two brothers recording the layers to compose a song the question arose; how would we play this live? With trial and error of Resonator/ Steel guitars and Mandolins strapped to mic stands, we have been able to achieve our sound in a live setting with the addition of our rhythm section."



**Western Kill-billy**

Utilizing select elements from a variety of classic genres, Saddle of Southern Darkness has woven together a gossamer synthesis bound only by the most clandestine curiosities.



"The band's unique sound was inspired by metal artists such as Bathory, Dissection, Grave, and traditional country artists like Hank Williams (Senior, Junior, and III), George Jones, and Wayne Hancock, to name a few."
