Radical Something w/ Cisco Adler
Radical Something is an independent trio composed of Alex Lagemann, Josh Hallbauer, and Michael Costanzo. According to Billboard.com the trio "blends hip-hop and rock with a decidedly Californian vibe".
I'm a musician first and a human second.
I am a workaholic who knows how to have a good time.
I love women until they hate me...then I love them more.
I live in Malibu, California when I'm not living on a bus or in a hotel room.
I grew up barefoot in Maui, Hawaii from age 9 until I was 18 when I went of to college at the University of Arizona to study nothing...I did not graduate.
I have six brothers named Nic, Sonny, Manny, Ike, Oscar, and Pablo and a sister named Eve.
I have three dogs named Poncho, Joe, and Tambourine, a cat named Nicada, and several unnamed deer that visit me daily.
I drive a Hybrid and you should too.
I was a vegetarian for 8 years until I met a baked lobster roll I couldn't resist and have been a carnivore ever since.
I don't have a favorite color and I wonder when that happened because I always had one as a kid and it kind of saddens me.
I love the smell of fresh cut grass.
I like T.V.'s with mute buttons that deactivate when u press the volume up button.
I love the feeling that you get when you get off of a roller coaster but I hate the feeling you get when your getting on it.
I make music all day everyday because if I didnt I would go insane.
I dont give a fuck what people think about me as long as they think about me. I want to change the world for the better.
I am real.
Dewey and the Peoples
Dewey and the Peoples is a five-piece music group reigning from the San Francisco Bay Area. Like Bob Marley, the basis of their tunes is a rootsy reggae feel while incorporating ska/rock/punk/pop and r&b. The rhythm section of the band comes from a background of jazz, while the guitar stems from a more ska/punk influence. Dewey, the poster boy, vocalist and band leader keeps the vibes irie with his lyrics and songwriting. Many different factors including love for life, people, and music make Dewey and the Peoples a unique group that is continuing to blow minds daily.
Although Marty Shannon has never quite liked talking about himself, he has agreed to write this biography in the third person. Indeed, the youngest of four, he was raised humbly in a little swath of beach paradise in South West Florida called Sarasota. His parents fed and watered his love for music with legends like Al Green, Sam Cooke and
Bill Withers. His eldest brother was in an Orlando based band which is how Marty got his first guitar. Not by right, however. When his brother would leave the house, he would steal his guitar and do the best he could to make sounds. "There was nothing quite like it."
A few years later around the age of 15, Marty got his first listen to men like John Mayer and Jason Mraz and that, as he says, was "all I needed." He began gigging at any place that would have him: Starbucks, restaurants, bars, garage sales, and even a spay and
neuter cat benefit auction.
Now at the age of 23, Marty resides in Los Angeles California and has a slightly better resume: House of Blues, Whiskey A Go Go, the Viper Room, the Roxy and countless other venues. He just recently released his debut E.P. "Before The Love Goes" on iTunes and, yes ladies, he still loves playing spay and neuter cat benefit auctions.
His love for classic R&B legends and current pop icons shines brightly in his music. With a little persistence and a dash of perseverance, he is on the fast track to shine just the same. If you're interested in reading about my life and how I became the man/musician that I am, then I love you.
Wholeheartedly and truly,
