Dan Getkin and the Twelve Six
Dan Getkin and the Twelve Six - Dan Getkin fronts a rocking alternative-country group from Pittsburgh, joined by Bill Brandt (guitar), Alex Herd (bass), Eddan Sparks (drums), and Jake Troxell (keys). These are energetic songs, songs with passion, songs that will lift the roof off of the house. With a strong sense of melody, Getkin builds each tune from a stripped-down skeleton into a frenetic rocker. Fans of Ryan Adams, Wilco, and Jackson Browne will appreciate the balance of strong songwriting and enthusiastic live performance.
The Red Western
The Red Western - The music of Pittsburgh indie rock group The Red Western is a compendium of influences and inspirations that cross genres and draw heavily from various strains of Americana, pop and rock. But even with their roots firmly entangled with these familiar sounds, the band never comes across as ordinary or simply uses their musical heroes as stepping stones to develop their own musical perspective. They've got a very definite idea of what kind of music they want to make and only enlist these influences when the time is right. There's a strong sense of pop individuality even when you can hear them working their way through some recognizable landscapes. With the release of their two new EPs, "Sirens" and "Arrows," the band is looking to continue this lineage of heavy pop theatrics and bucolic folk expectation.
Ian Friend aka DJ Soulfulfella has been around the rare soul scene in Pittsburgh for over 15 years. His passion is for the rare and hard to find soul sounds that fell through the cracks. Yet, he has a deep love of the classics that no one can live without. Expect a generous helping of both rare and classic sounds spun at 45rpm and mixed up with latin and reggae grooves that are guaranteed to make you move. If you have a love of Marvin Gaye, Etta James, James Brown, Wilson Pickett, Aretha Franklin, Sam & Dave or the Temptations then you are guaranteed to move your feet and shake those hips.
