Banana Gun shows are an event, not just a few guys and a girl strapping on their instruments to wank through a set. They do exactly what you want a band to do on stage: Lay it all out. No Bullshit. No hustle. Their set lists often include only the instructions: “just the hitters, no quitters.”
Banana Gun’s sound is described as bluesy, jammy, eclectic, and jazzy. But, we all know that “jazzy” is a catch-all musical term too many music critics use when they don’t know how to describe a band that incorporates so many influences. Releasing their eponymous 'Banana Gun' in 2010 and then 'The Elephant in the Room' in 2012 (which was voted Top Ten Digital Download of 2012 by Amazon Music Editors), Banana Gun then toured the Southwest and California before releasing their latest album 'Love.Instinct' in March 2014. Their most recent EP, 'I and the Me' was recorded and released December 2014 as part of their five year anniversary.
Banana Gun is one of those bands that lay everything on the line for each other. Writing, recording, or playing live, they do it for each other and hopefully you’re lucky enough to be there to see it.
Unapologetic Rock & Roll
Formed in the early parts of 2015, the band Wyves have been hard at work creating and crafting their signature brand of Rock & Roll. Their debut album, “Spoils Of War”, is 11 tracks that came from six months of writing sessions. It is an album that is both modern and classic in quality and conviction with great hooks and well thought out lyrics. "Spoils Of War" was released in February of 2016 to a Sold Out Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix, Arizona. It was also released across all online outlets, where it continues to spread and reach new ears. Phoenix New Times named Corey Gloden the Male Vocalist of the year as well as "Spoils Of War" the #1 song of 2016.
Wyves have shared the stage at festivals and as direct support with acts such as: Beck, Gary Clark Jr, Kid Cudi, The Avett Brothers, Juliette Lewis and Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas. In previous projects they have shared the stage and toured with acts such as: Guns N' Roses, Aerosmith, Kid Rock, Cheap Trick, Peter Frampton, Rival Sons and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros (to name a few). Between the four members of Wyves there has been a lot of knowledge gained and miles traveled for such a young and upcoming Rock band. This band is the culmination of experience and a driving passion to create this music. Wyves are truly where they want to be and this is the music they want to share. If you have ever been to a Wyves show you'd be hard pressed to shoot that statement down.
It's not rock and roll, but it rocks! It's not folk, but doing a jig feels natural! It's not blues, but we ocassionally pour our souls into repeated 12 bar phrases! It's not indi/alternative, but we'll drink pbr if the budget is tight! Ok, it's all of these things combined to create a Captain Planet of noise that will no doubt save the world!
DRY RIVER YACHT CLUB
Sailing Musicians upon a yacht, upon the seas we sailed. When one day sailing on board our ship, through a storm we had to prevail. The storm took us and threw us, and tossed us around. It bumped us and blew us. It soaked us and shook us. .
