THE JAZZ BUTCHERS

The original Jazz Butchers have evolved into the current musical line-up featuring Matt Lilley on Sax, Dave Curry Bass, Louis Barragán on Conga's, Gustavo Ramirez, Dave Arana on keys and piano, and Jim Matthews on drums. In addition to these musicians are Leddie Garcia on Percussion, Composer/arranger Ron Blake on Trumpet and Flugelhorn, and Big Band arranger/composer Brent Fischer who's band contributed string and horn parts to several of the album titles.
The Jazz Butchers performs primarily in the greater Los Angeles/Southern Cal area. Compositions are all original with elements of modern, alternative, and "straight ahead" jazz, and fusing these with Latin, Blues, Funk and other elements making the experience unpredictable and spontaneous.
The songs are upbeat and Inspiring, having a unique local sound reminiscent of the experimental days in Los Angeles circa 1970 -1980. The music on this album is inspired and attributed to people and places that developed the albums character.
They play originals, plus Weather Report,, Miles Davis, John Coltrane, Herbie Hancock, Horace Silver, Lee Morgan, Dexter Gordon, and more!

Growing up in Las Vegas, Nevada, ZaZa took musical influence from the local music scene as well as some of her favorite musicians, including Pink, Avril Lavigne, and Madonna's early work. She has played music her entire life, starting with violin and piano at age 3 and picking up guitar at age 11. She began writing songs on guitar and piano at age 12 after learning to cover Taylor Swift’s entire collection of released music at the time. ZaZa continued to cover songs from all different genres and artists, and landed acoustic performances around Las Vegas showcasing these songs as well as her original music.
Aside from music, ZaZa spent her childhood in cheerleading, gymnastics, dance, and acting, and later in horseback riding and aerial acrobatics. She appeared in both national and international commercials as a child, representing national brands including Longines watches, and has recently been featured on RAI network in Italy.
A competitive tennis player from the age of 8, ZaZa spent ages 9 through 14 traveling for tournaments on the national junior circuit while still developing her creative skills in music, dance, acrobatics, and acting.
A natural performer from a young age, ZaZa always had a love for performing whenever the opportunity to be on stage arose, usually talent shows or dance recitals.
She began her ascent into the music industry in 2011 at age 14, when she headlined the House of Blues Las Vegas with her then duo partner. The duo landed dozens of gigs after that night, performing for more House of Blues venues, clubs, and radio stations across the West Coast.
ZaZa began her solo career in 2013, when she released her first EP #Forever with her production team at Neon Pink Records. Immediately following this release, Dance Moms star Asia Monet Ray joined Neon Pink Records to further develop her music career. ZaZa and her team wrote and produced a number of songs for Asia and were used in Lifetime Network’s Dance Moms spin off Raising Asia.
ZaZa released her next single 'Go Back' in 2016, after taking a break from releasing music and performing to attend college and work on other projects. Her new single was followed by features and another track, ‘Just Fine’ a few months later. ‘Just Fine’ proved to be ZaZa’s most successful single up to that time, reaching 1 million views on combined platforms and attracting hundreds of remixers to the track’s official remix contest. Her next single ‘With You’ proved to be equally as popular, attracting new fans and creating a social media buzz.
As of 2018, ZaZa has headlined shows across the US, and opened for acts such as Keith Urban, Tim McGraw, Maren Morris, Afrojack, and Trina and she has collaborated with brands like Into The AM and Vertigo Music App.

NKRIOT is an electronic music pioneer and inventor and a founder of the music genre known as “goji.” Hailing from Boyle Heights, California, NKRIOT champions a unique, kinetic sound based around an ever-evolving custom rig of hardware known as the RIOTLAB.
When performing live, the artist known as NKRIOT (real name, Kristopher Escajeda) wears his signature hand-made mask. This mask is not merely a prop; it’s a working electronic instrument that allows the artist to interface with the original music he’s performing live, for example by allowing him to process his own vocals in real-time while singing. None of the music performed during live NKRIOT’s shows is pre-recorded, not even the original productions composed by Escajeda himself. Instead, more akin to a live band or live musician, NKRIOT performs his compositions with instruments, using electronic effects controllers, an electric guitar, drum pads, synthesizers and other elements to create a wholly new experience. No two NKRIOT shows are exactly the same.
NKRIOT’s first full-length studio album, Riot, spawned the single, “Reality Pages,” an idiosyncratic track that caught the attention of corporate brands like LinkedIn and Jarritos and caused them to sign Escajeda as a brand ambassador, tapping into his authenticity and street cred. The follow-up album, Virtual Climax Recordings, is due for release in May 2018 with the first single being, “Shogun 8.0.” available online now.
