Glowing Cat Eyes
Whirl is the creation of Nikki Maoz, a critically acclaimed singer, songwriter and guitarist who has consistently won over audiences and critics alike with heartfelt live performances and beautifully-crafted, colossal hook-based, chart-friendly tunes.
With a sound that has been described as ambrosial, hooky, intelligent, polished and passionate, the band has received glowing press and has touched audiences worldwide.
Whirl was originally formed in London, England, and after performing extensively throughout the UK, relocated to the U.S., where Whirl has since performed throughout the East and West Coasts at venues as diverse as New York’s legendary Mercury Lounge, Knitting Factory and the Make Music NY Festival, Pennsylvania’s Crocodile Rock, Sacramento’s Cal Expo, and many more. Whirl has also made TV appearances on both coasts and has received airplay on both major and college radio stations including New York’s Q104.3, NJ’s WFDU and various US and European-based podcasts, where Whirl’s music continues to shine.
Luminous Newts is an eclectic rock/pop/prog band based in the San Francisco Bay Area.
The Gravel Spreaders
The new album “Metal Hee Haw” is what happens when a metal-head hopped up on moonshine, spite and Hank Williams III uses sweet talk and coercion to coax three musicians into wearing coveralls and playing twang instrumentals of hair-metal covers.
Thus, The Gravel Spreaders was born. Singing lead and slapping the hell out of his trusty Bandit, Bud Hole leads a motley crew consisting of mandolin masher and jaw harpist, Dr. Buck Knife, dobro-slider and gitter-picker, Uncle Mungar, and banjoleer and high-pitched harmonizer, Buzzy “secret sauce” Do-Well through a debut album consisting of 13 songs of lust, remorse, Satan, beer, and the trailer-park hits of yesteryear, blue-grass style. The result: the birth of Gravel-Billy.
With a set list that covers Johnny Cash, Ozzy, Rage Against the Machine and everything in between, the Spreaders remind us that nothing is sacred.
Bud (Tom Beyer), Doc (K.S. Haddock), Uncle Mungar (Mark Ungar) and Buzzy Do-Well (Pete Feltman) are long-time Bay Area multi-instrumentalists who collectively have several albums, movie scores, and San Francisco Fringe Festival awards to their credit.
