Harry Katz & the Pistachios
Love. Death. Dreams. Conspiracy. Escapism. Homelessness. All put under the poetic microscope of Harry Katz’s original songwriting. With a distinct blend of classic soul and rock and roll, his uniquely raspy voice feels like the smooth veritas of an un-pulled cigarette, laying over a tight and pounding 10-piece band that turns brass into gold. His lyrics appear at first to be simple and fun, but as you go deeper into a familiar and yet fresh catalog of music, you’ll find the feeling of home on the edge of a razor. With Harry Katz, something far darker and more poignant is revealed, disguised as the most fun you can have seeing a live band. The Pistachios are preparing a live EP and a studio single. A demo is available on their website.

The Charities are a soul, funk based band from Hermosa Beach California. They experiment with a wide array of instruments that are not conventional to today’s standard band line up: (guitar, bass, drums, etc.). Their music draws influence from many different genres such as vintage jazz, old Motown soul, to funk, and even disco and R&B. What makes their performance so memorable is their energy and ability to get the crowd engaged and moving, especially because of their front man who is recognized for his retro dance moves. They explore inventive ways to use percussion and wind instruments, and even more so in their recordings. The Charities are a fun mix of good friends who grew up around each other while playing in different bands where all the musicians were individually recognized for their style and experience. Every member of The Charities adds a unique personality and sound that can be heard within their musi
