Caravan of Thieves:   Like many families, this one started with a married couple- Fuzz and Carrie Sangiovanni, (guitar, vocals, various percussive “instruments”) writing and performing as a duo. “It started as a romantic, bohemian vision of a couple making music, performing on the road, in parks, venues, traveling around and avoiding responsibility as much as possible,” says Fuzz. “The first thing we discovered was we loved singing together, harmonizing our voices. Just seemed to click right away.” In the spring of 2008, Fuzz and Carrie extended their family to include fiery violinist Ben Dean and double bass madman, Brian Anderson completing their colorful vision. Since then, the four of them ran away from home and never looked back.  

Clovis : "Clovis is a three-piece Rock and Roll band out of Los Angeles, California. Matt wood, 20 (singer-songwriter, guitarist) established the band with Brent Black, 22 (bass, harmonica) in summer of 2012. Later down the road, Matt and Brent picked up Mikey Hurtado, 20 on drums. As a three-piece, Clovis holds a diverse foundation of blues, folk and country. On September 1st, 2013, Clovis released their debut five song EP titled “Silent Sound” in both digital and CD formats. The EP ranges stylistically from blues to rock and roll. With simplistic arrangements and introspective lyrics, “Silent Sound” is comparable to bands like Nirvana, The White Stripes and Wolfmother. It was engineered, mixed and mastered by Johnny Cerneka at Pot O’ Gold recording in Orange, California. Clovis plans on working on a future full-length album within the next couple of months titled “Hope”. Although, Silent Sound focuses primarily on Blues and Rock and Roll, the Clovis catalog includes other genres like folk, pop, alternative and funk. The variety of genres and close attention to lyrics and textures makes Clovis applicable to virtually any mood or setting."

Steel Toed Slippers:  Will Nicoll and Matt Moss, also known as Steel Toed Slippers, have risen from the roots of redwoods in Humboldt County to bring the world a tall and sturdy serving of classic American rock soiled in soul, funk, blues, and jazz influences.  It all started the fall of 2006 when Will and Matt, who didn't know each other yet, were just beginning another school year in their small town of McKinleyville, California.  Will, a high school junior, roamed around the halls with his acoustic guitar and harmonica on a daily basis, and Matt, a freshman, woke up every morning at 5 am to play drums in the school's swing band.  It was when one of the school's counselors noticed Matt playing drums in the band room one day after class that he knew the two had to meet.  He introduced them to each other later that day at lunch and the rest is history.    After deciding on a band name for their new group, Will and Matt took Humboldt County by storm.  Playing at nearly every venue in the area within the next year, Steel Toed Slippers became a well known and highly respected name among the local music scene in Humboldt.  It was clear very early on that these small town boys were onto something much bigger than their youthful selves.  In 2007, the band did their first west coast tour with shows from Humboldt all the way to Los Angeles ending with a sold out show at The Whiskey A Go Go. It was at this point that the guys realized that LA was the place to be, and soon decided to re-locate.  For the next couple years, Will attended the Musicians Institute, and Matt studied jazz at the Hamilton Music Academy.   Shortly after the move the STS boys found themselves working among some of their biggest musical influences.  They were invited into the home studio of Stephen Perkins - drummer for Jane's Addiction - to record their very first EP. This led to countless road trips up and down the California Coast including opening slots for artists such as Little Feat, Fishbone, Cyril Neville and his band The Royal Southern Brotherhood, Dumpstaphunk, Ozomatli, and many more.     In the summer of 2011, Steel Toed Slippers went into the studio to record a single song with Kenny Gradney of Little Feat playing bass.  With the help of Bonnie Raitt's guitar player, Johnny Lee Schell, they ended up laying down an entire album of original music that went on to be mixed by multi Grammy award winning producer Ed Cherney.  In 2012 the band released their first full length album, titled Steel Toed Slippers.  Shortly after the release, STS played a headlining set in Los Angeles at The Mint with Bill Payne of Little Feat sitting in on keyboards.     Steel Toed Slippers are always on the go from town to town, and city to city, with one simple objective: to blow minds.  Whether they are performing as a duo, trio, quartet, or quintet, you can count on them to leave their audiences wanting more.  This is a band that is truly here to stay and grow, much like the redwoods that surround their youth.
