Jimmie's Chicken Shack

Jimmie's Chicken Shack blends funk-metal with elements of ska and reggae but also a surprising acoustic prowess. Lead vocalist Jimmy HaHa grew up in Maryland and played with a group named Ten Times Big for several years. After the band broke up, he hit the snowboarding circuit for two years but then began several acoustic jams with friends. HaHa recruited drummer Jim Chaney (from Ten Times Big), longtime friend Che' Lemon on bass, and guitarist Dave Dowling (aka Double D) to form Jimmie's Chicken Shack. Based in Annapolis, MD, the group formed their own Fowl Records and released Give Something Back. After selling tens of thousands of records around the Baltimore area, Jimmie's Chicken Shack signed to Elton John's Rocket Records and released their major-label debut, Pushing the Salmanilla Envelope. Still involved with their own label, however, the group also released The Original Recipe, a collection of early recordings, followed in 1999 by Bring Your Own Stereo.

The greatest band you've never heard of....

None Given

Paradrei is an alternative, grunge band that is known for their raw storytelling and visceral performance. The trio from Lancaster, PA has been playing sold out shows in the Mid-Atlantic in support of the release of their full length “Deep | Alive” – a vivid and emotional embrace of the anger, sadness, and uncertainty of those feelings that come with the struggle of depression and anxiety.

With influences in 90s grunge, punk, and noise, Paradrei unapologetically brings everything to the table from heavy grooves to complex dynamics. The band’s tonal homebase being slightly off centered from “perfection” creates this growing underlying tension that is characteristic of their explosive sound.

“Deep Alive” – the band’s 3rd release – follows the release of “The Black the Sun” and “In Threes” and marks the band’s first full length, major work.
