The Goddamn Gallows
The groundwork for what has become the relentlessly-touring sonic assault known as The Koffin Kats was laid near Detroit, Michigan when Vic Victor (Lead Vocalist, Upright Bass) joined forces with long-time friend Tommy Koffin (Guitar). After adding Damian Detroit (Drums) the band kicked off in June 2003, stopping for nothing. Now, with over ten years of touring internationally and over two thousand live shows, the touring trio's current home is out on the open road.
Viva Le Vox
Viva Le Vox is an experimental punk rock roots band from Lake Worth, Florida. The influences are diverse, though the most predominant are early 20th century jazz, 1950s Rock-n-Roll, and 1970s punk rock. The music has been described as a mix between Gogol Bordello and Tom Waits, or Django Reinhardt meets The Clash- either way a gypsy jazz punk rock-n-roll stew no matter which part of the last century you're familiar with.
After spending the better part of his early twenties in and out of psychiatric units and rehabs, singer/songwriter/guitarist Tony Bones found himself somewhere in Delray Beach, Florida, and began to play his songs solo. He soon found a band grew up around him, and the outfit started gaining interest from their now infamous shows at their local 24-hour laundromat, and their guerilla infiltration of open mic nights. Since then, with the tremendous help and support of friends and fans, past and present members, and a whole lotta elbow grease, Viva Le Vox has been able to tour extensively, and independently release 3 albums to date: Desperation Alley (2009), Wayward Ones (2010), and Dirt For Sale (2012).
