Robby Krieger's Jazz Kitchen: Born on January 8, 1946, in Los Angeles, California, Robby Krieger was convinced by a Chuck Berry concert to give rock music a go, which resulted in the guitarist trading in his classical guitar in for a Gibson SG, an instrument that he would eventually become his signature instrument. Studying physics and Indian music at UCLA, Krieger played in bands with friends, and eventually bumped into a drummer he’d met a few years before, John Densmore. The two began jamming on blues together, while Krieger’s interest in Indian music and culture continued to flourish, as he began dabbling with sitars (studying at the Kinnara School, which was founded by Ravi Shankar), and attending meditation classes. It was at one of these meditation classes that Krieger met keyboardist Ray Manzarek. Manzarek eventually convinced Krieger to come down and rehearse with a poet/singer he’d been working with, Jim Morrison. Their first rehearsal supposedly resulted in the playing of “Moonlight Drive,” resulting in the birth of the Doors. Quickly building a name for themselves in L.A. with their unpredictable live shows, the Doors were signed to Elektra Records, and issued their debut album, the Doors, in 1967. The album would become one of rock’s all-time classics, as it spawned the monster hit “Light My Fire,” a tune penned entirely by Krieger. Subsequent studio releases — 1967?s Strange Days, 1968?s Waiting for the Sun, and 1969?s the Soft Parade — all included several classic songs, and by the dawn of the ’70s, the band issued a pair of strong releases, 1970?s Morrison Hotel and 1971?s L.A. Woman. Krieger would go on to issue solo albums (debuting in 1977 with Robby Krieger & Friends), in addition to playing live dates, and guest appearances on albums by other artists (the Butts Band, Blue Öyster Cult, etc.). In the early 21st century, Krieger and Manzarek resuscitated the Doors (with the Cult’s Ian Astbury taking Morrison’s position, and the Police’s Stewart Copeland initially taking Densmore’s spot) for live shows and recordings. Krieger’s latest release “Singularity” is a mix of all of his eclectic influences, resulting in a stunning display of his guitar prowess. Robby still tours with Door’s co-founder Ray Manzarek, performing The Doors hits to sold out houses across the globe.
Midnight Lamp: Bio: Midnight Lamp has been a fixture in the South Bay for a solid decade. From their rough beginnings, throwing together jams and shows mostly for friends, oft times struggling to button down permanent members committed to the band, they’ve since evolved into a tight and fully developed blues-based, R&B, funk-jam outfit. They are Jason Flentye (rhythm guitar, lead vocals), Fred Flentye (lead guitar), Ed Lugo (bass guitar, vocals), Joyce Isles (lead vocals, tambourine), Jeff Blackman (drums, percussion, background vocals), and Steve Arnold (tenor, alto, and soprano saxophones). With age ranging from about 30-60 years old, they're one of the more diverse groups of unlikely musicians on stage at the same time. Their collective backgrounds and individual journeys pack the band with an eclectic powerhouse of talent which demands dancing from its audiences. Fred Flentye opened on tour in a band during the 70′s for the Drifters, Shirelles, and Coasters. Joyce Isles, who's bellow could put any American Idol to shame, once performed before the Dramatics, and her own brother is an original member of the O’Jays. Steve Arnold has been a professional sax player for 34 years and attended the Berklee College of Music in Boston.
Trey Comstock: Trey Comstock is a Texas transplant who has made his home in the South Bay for the last eight years. Three years ago he began focusing on writing original music and playing local clubs in Manhattan and Hermosa Beach. His musical style is heavily blues influenced while trying to pattern his writing after Texas Songwriters like Willie Nelson, Robert Earl Keen Jr., and Charlie Robinson. You can expect a heavy dose of slide guitar and harmonica during any one show. Currently he has been fronting the band Johnny Jump Up which is a Irish, folk, blues band but his most recent project is the album he is recording with his newest band Dad Gummit coming soon in 2012.
