(The way HE would want)
The Railbenders | Carolyn's Mother | Irie Still | Mike River
With equal parts of Orange County punk, honky tonk country, and rockabilly sensibilities, Reno Divorce strikes a unique chord of their own in a diluted genre of what passes as “Punk rock’n’roll”. Throw in well-crafted and deftly executed songs that straddle the line between Smithereens and Social Distortion, and you’ve got a band that truly stands out amongst the herd. Oh, and there’s one more thing….this aint the boys’ first rodeo…they’ve played with almost all their punk hereos (ALL, Social D, TSOL, Adolescents, Agent Orange, Shattered Faith, X, The Blasters, Motorhead), and shared a tour bus with more contemporary heavy hitters, ala U.S. Bombs, The Bones, and Street Dogs. They’ve worked with the cream of the crop behind the scenes, as well. Their last record, “Tears Before Breakfast” was produced by Jason Livermore at the world famous Blasting Room and the support tours for that album were handled by M.A.D. Booking in Europe, where among other great festivals, they graced the Saturday Night Fever Stage at With Full Force. Always captivating live, and wrought with more hooks than your uncle Bob’s tackle box, Reno Divorce has carved out a reputation as the real nitty gritty, a true “musician’s band” that pushes the envelope with every release, without sounding contrived or formulated. Brent Loveday’s adept songwriting and clever storytelling are brought to life by the bands expert musicianship. With Brent Loveday on lead guitar and vocals, Tim Jadowski on bass, Tye Battistella on Rhythm guitar and Ruben Patino the band fires on all cylinders. backed by a band that fires on all cylinders. Reno Divorce has earned honors in Kerrang, Metal Hammer, Loud Fast Rules, and (more importantly to the band) the respect of their peers.
Denver, CO based country band.
After Garnering critical raves, fans galore, and CD sales of over 10,000 (all without a net or a recording contract) Denver-based Carolyn's Mother - Rhett Lee (vocals), Drew Hodgson (guitar), Colin T. Burke (bass) and Bill Thomason (drums) - was nearly legendary throughout the West and Midwest for introducing a sound and style only previously heard from the likes of international touring bands – a brand of rough-around-the-edges Britpop that echoed 80s acts like The Cure and 90s Brit-breakouts Oasis, Blur and James.
In the nearly thirteen years before the band 'retired' in October 2004, Carolyn's Mother became regional heroes, playing to full houses across the country.
Dr. Kevin Fitzgerald
Comedian, Veterinarian, and Animal Planet Host.
With a background that ranges from numerous tours as a bouncer with The Rolling Stones, The Who, and The Police, a 25-year career in veterinary medicine that saw him named “Specialist of the Year in Private Practice” in 2006, and over 20-years of performing as a professional stand-up comedian; Kevin Fitzgerald is a true renaissance man. Perhaps best known for his 10 seasons on the popular Animal Planet TV show Emergency Vets, Kevin’s passion for making people laugh is surpassed only by his unwavering dedication to all creatures great and small. He believes it is a great privilege to be in a position where he is able to pursue a dual career doing work that he truly enjoys.
In addition to his numerous appearances on Animal Planet, Kevin has appeared on The NBC Nightly News with Tom Brokaw, The Today Show with Matt Lauer, Fox News Channel’s Geraldo-At-Large with Geraldo Rivera, The Maury Povich Show, TNN’s
Crooke and Chase, Discovery Channel’s Home Matters, and most recently CBS’s The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. He also hosts a weekly segment on CW2’s morning news show called Animal House, in which he keeps the public informed about pet and animal-related issues. His national radio appearances include The Howard Stern Show, as well as being featured on Paul Harvey’s The Rest of the Story.
In 2006, Kevin was incredibly honored by the opportunity to pay tribute to his friend and colleague, Steve Irwin (The Crocodile Hunter) at the 8th Annual Family Viewers Awards by presenting Steve’s wife Terri with a posthumous lifetime achievement award for her husband. Earlier that year Kevin had appeared as a guest on Steve’s show New Breed Vets on Animal Planet.
As a comedian, Kevin has opened for such diverse and legendary performers as Bob Hope, Diana Ross, The Temptations, and The Neville Brothers. Despite maintaining a busy practice at Alameda East Veterinary Hospital in Denver, Kevin performs to rave reviews at nearly one hundred corporate and fundraising events annually and is in very high demand as a host, guest speaker, and lecturer at universities and veterinary conferences across the country. He believes that laughter is an incredibly important part of everyday life, and that nobody could ever laugh too much.
