BILL TARSHA & THE ROCKET 88S
BILL TARSHA & THE ROCKET 88S
The Rocket 88s have been a solid fixture in the Arizona music scene since the mid 1970s and in the national blues scene...

The Rocket 88s cd "AZ Bootin" with legendary sax player Big Jay McNeely was a 1988 Grammy Award Nominee for best traditional blues recording.

The Rocket 88s are well seasons professional blues musicians touring most of the USA through the years and exciting European audiences. Bill Tarsha, playing harmonica since the mid 60s, is a nationally known world class player winning top harmonica acclaim since the early 1970s.
GYPSY
GYPSY
Gypsy is a band featuring members Cold World, Mother Of Mercy, and Stick Together. There's absolutely no info anywhere about this band except for the brief descriptions I've seen on the Six Feet Under Records website and other sites selling this album. The band has no formal webpage, tumblr, facebook, or bandcamp pages whatsoever. Judging by the band's pedigree, you'd think you'd be in for some heavy sounding music, but that couldn't be further from what's contained on Gypsy's debut ten song album. Gypsy play a great style of emotive and melodic music that's one part melodic punk, one part emo, and one part 90's alt. rock thrown in for good measure
BOB CORRITORE
