The Hollow Legs: Born out of the smoldering remains of the Great Recession comes The Hollow Legs, a group of four South Bay natives that bring a ferocious garage rock sound inspired by good old fashioned American Blues music. The soulful yet powerful vocals of Kira “Bones Jones” Lingman will leave you breathless and possibly brainless. Sharing lead guitar duties with Kira is Richie “1%” Calkins, the aristocrat who somehow tricked the rest of the 99% into thinking he was the second coming of Hendrix. Mason “Mraz” Wright produces thundering bass tones and always fills the “one fedora per crew” quota. Danny “Jah Praise” Peyton, a local drum and ‘shine enthusiast, will bring “jah”-dropping drum fills on his duct taped drum kit (sponsored and anchored by Pedigree).

Blac Jesus and The Experimentalists: Blac Jesus and the experimentalists hail from Pomona, California. The band consists of four members: Bassist, Fransisco Morales; Drummer, Daniel Fernandez; Saxophonista, Bryan Perske; and Guitar/Vocals, Runson Willis. The band, formed in 2010, was the product of a musical journey that began with the loss of a guitar and led to a long downfall into depression and guilt. Almost 8 months later, after finding a guitar stashed at a house for sale, Willis was reborn into the world of music, naming his guitar "blac Jesus" for saving him. Blac Jesus & the Experimentalists, is an amalgamation of blues, soul, and rock with the purpose of trying to connect and inspire through their music, playing with their souls and talking about life and struggle. "Since day one, God has been there to guide us to this point. So I thank him for readying us." says Willis.

Saint James Band: George Castrinos, leader of the Saint James Band, it would seem was destined to play guitar; destined for the life of a musician. When he was 10 years old he recalls seeing a red Gibson resting in the bedroom of his best friend’s older brother (the room was strictly off limits). “I was drawn to it, in a way I can’t even explain,” says Castrinos. Though the oft ill-tempered older brother lay sleeping and rousing him could elicit the most frightening verbal reprimands, Castrinos risked the tirade and stealthily entered the forbidden zone. He knew when he touched the headstock of the guitar it was what he was supposed to do. Around the same time his brother David played him the album Led Zeppelin II. Life, as Castrinos knew it, would never be the same. In early 2011, Castrinos formed the Saint James Band where tales of redemption, salvation, forgiveness, and (ultimately) love became the subjects of his songwriting—a positive outcome from the ashes of a tragic loss. The Saint James Band’s songs, with their Americana folk rock and roots influences, combine intricate finger picking; slide guitar and twangy, hard-driven, electric power chords. They will remind you of Neil Young, they will remind you of Eric Clapton. They will make you think good thoughts and feel good about yourself and your life, which is exactly what Castrinos says he wants this project to do. Some of the lyrics are based on ancient spiritual teachings. Title track, “Love You All” is part of a prayer that you say throughout the day that goes, “What would you have me do? Where would you have me go? What would you have me say and to whom? And the answer that came to Castrinos; “You walk tall. You hold your head high. You look people in the eyes and you tell no lies.” Though Castrinos has been the lead guitarist in many bands and worked with some of the finest musicians (such as Robert Lucas and Larry Taylor of Canned Heat and Chris Robinson from the Black Crowes) the Saint James Band is the first band in which Castrinos is doing everything himself. “It’s the first band that I feel is my very own project.” Joining Castrinos in the Saint James Band are bassist Curran McDowell and drummer Ethan Yeager, both students of the prestigious, Boston-based Berkelee College of Music. Castrinos, who is a proponent of the power of positive thinking, has written eight uplifting tracks on Who You Are. “Everything’s Gonna Be Alright” He sees this band as a way to unite people. “I want people to know that there’s a better way to live. Through discipline of your thoughts and actions you can somewhat control your destiny. If our songs can instill hope in people and give them a renewed sense of purpose than I’ve done my job.”
