Watch & Listen
Indigenous front man, Mato Nanji (Ma-TOE NON-gee), was born and raised on the Yankton Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. Mato's father, the late Greg Zephier, Sr., was a well-known and highly respected spiritual advisor and spokesperson for the International Indian Treaty Council. In addition to this leadership role, he was an accomplished musician and a member of the musical group, The Vanishing Americans. Formed by Greg and his brothers in the '60's, The Vanishing Americans toured nationally and shared bills with such legends as Bonnie Raitt. Besides being heavily influenced by the music his father and uncles were making, Mato was exposed to Greg's vast collection of blues records by legendary artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and B.B. King. Consequently, Mato embraced and began utilizing his own musical talent at a young age. With the experience, love and wisdom of their father to guide them, Mato, his brother, sister and cousin formed the band Indigenous while in their late teens.
Phil Varca & The SlamJammers
New Yok based Phil Varca & The SlamJammers is a powerful rockin’ blues band. They can rock thunderously with driving rhythms that will shake you out of your seat then quickly downshift into low and display sensitive, evocative playing with their soulful emoting. The group’s raw, guitar driven grooves and energy creates a big sound but with no frills. Audiences identify and respond to this energy. For them, it is truly a cathartic experience.
Joe Stuby and Rocking Horse
A sound deeply rooted in the blues with a hard hitting heavy funk/rock groove is what you will hear when Joe Stuby & Rocking Horse perform. Influences such as Jimi Hendrix, Paliament/Funkadelic, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Sly Stone form the core of the sound as spontaneity and improvisation highlight their live shows. This Blues/Funk/Rock band provides an exciting and passionate journey every time they take the stage.
