Mike Pinto Band
Mike Pinto has crafted an exceptional style of songwriting, with a truly unique take on Roots, Vintage Rock, Reggae, Ska and Classic Surf, but it's his distinct voice and seamless storytelling that has brought him success both in the States and overseas.
With the release of his debut album (Little District, 2005), Pinto began his attack on the Philadelphia music scene as a solo artist. By 2006, underground success and a rabid growing fanbase allowed him to expand westward with two nationwide solo acoustic tours. After the second tour, Pinto decided to relocate to San Diego where he immersed himself in the thriving Southern California music scene and quickly gained a name. The infectious sound garnered so much attention that Insomnia Radio added his single "One More Time" amidst a hard hitting compilation of the SoCal sound's brightest groups including DI and Slightly Stoopid, with the members of which Pinto often uses as his supporting band.
Pinto's music quickly traveled out of the continental States and can be found on Japanese compilations, on Hawaii's top radio stations by huge supporter and top radio personality Shaggy Jenkins as well as topping charts in Guam. As in Pinto fashion, the hype was followed up with tours where he sold out shows in Guam, Big Island, Maui and Oahu, creating even more buzz in the wakes.
In late 2007 Pinto teamed up with professional skateboarder and legendary Drummer/Producer Chuck Treece (Pearl Jam, G Love, Bad Brains, McRad) and released his most complete work to date. With Treece lending his knack for producing and playing a number of the instruments on the album, Pinto's self-titled album has sold tens of thousands of copies worldwide. The album gained so much attention that Pinto was urged to follow it up with an entirely acoustic version of which was released in 2008.
With a focus on creating community and delivering a live show reminiscent of Vintage Rock and Roll, there is no denying the impact Mike Pinto will have in 2010.
Three Legged Fox
Three Legged Fox released Always Anyway in summer of 2011. Since then they have committed to bringing their live show and message to every city in the United States, including a current nine week Spring/Summer tour. An informal entry into national touring has afforded the band the opportunity to travel and play in many places they thus far have never been. Always Anyway marked a couple milestones for the band including a #2 chart spot on iTunes Reggae, and is the band’s bestselling album to date. More importantly is the ability to play 150-200 shows this year. “We’ve gotten email, or fan mail…whatever you want to call it, from people for years from so many different places that we couldn’t get ourselves to. And so to have the chance to do that now is really a blessing. Music is fan driven, it has to be. The fans that we have, their support and loyalty is never lost on us. We appreciate it tremendously,” explains drummer Kory Kochersperger.
Natural Vibrations (sometimes affectionately called "Natty Vibes"), is the Pacific's premiere reggae band. And they just released their long-awaited and highly anticipated 6th full-length album, titled Got This Music. The project, their first full-length release in five years, is produced by Imua Garza and Brett Ortone, the same production team responsible for blockbuster hit titles by Rebel Souljahz and Kolohe Kai.
