An ever-growing mob of fans has been coming out to watch 28 North perform with groups like Blues Traveler, Young the Giant, My Morning Jacket, TV on the Radio, and Crash Kings. The band has recently signed with legendary manager Jerry Heller (CCR, CSNY, Elton John, Marvin Gaye, NWA) and relocated to Los Angeles. 28 North has become a Los Angeles staple regularly performing at The Roxy, The Viper Room, and House of Blues LA. The groups self titled record, '28 North' has gotten radio play for 28 North in over 150 markets across the nation.

The Fire Department
Performing in front of a crowd has never been an issue for The Fire Department. Dubbed as “party rockers” by The Santa Barbara Independent, the musicians first gained notoriety in the Isla Vista, CA party scene while the members attended the University of California, Santa Barbara. Following in the footsteps of other Isla Vista standouts, such as Rebelution and Jack Johnson, the artists grew to be the talk of the town by hosting wild house party concerts that were routinely attended by thousands of fans.
After graduation the band moved to an orange grove in Ojai, CA to live together and write music. A clear new style emerged for the youthful musicians. After weeks of songwriting and practicing the songs were finally ready to be recorded at Santa Barbara’s renowned Playback Studios, with the same talented staff that contributed to Katy Perry’s smash hits “Teenage Dream” and “Prism.” The result was magical. The Underwater – EP, released on April 2nd, 2014, showcases a more mature sound from the artists and was followed by a sold out release show at Velvet Jones in Santa Barbara the following day.
The future is bright for The Fire Department, and expectations are high. The “party rockers” have grown into a new sonic complexity, and they are ready to take the world by storm.
