THE ROCKET 88s
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 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.
HANS OLSON
HANS OLSON
HANS OLSON is a veteran performing musician with over 40 years in the music business. He began his career as a lead singer in a Rock & Roll band in Southern California in 1967. By 1970, Hans had developed a very unique and powerful solo act.
He plays an amplified acoustic guitar and harmonica. He is known as one of the best "harp-in-a-rack" players in the world.

Hans' singing is very powerful. His voice is comfortable singing many styles of music ranging from mellow folk ballads to growling boogie blues.

Hans' songwriting is one of his most notable assets. He has recorded over 70 of his songs on his 13 independent record releases.

Hans has been a full time performing musician since 1972. He tours all over the world, but most of the time he travels the highways in Arizona where he has an amazing reputation of being a solo act that can rock a nightclub all night long..

GYPSY! WILD AT HARP
GYPSY! WILD AT HARP
Music has always been an influence in Gypsy's life. As a child she would attend at least three or more church services, just to hear them sing. She also loves to dance, once given a harmonica as a birthday gift, it all seem to fit.

She has had the opportunity to listen to some of the world’s greatest blues harmonica players. Many of them have been her mentors. Feature artist include, Bullet Bill Tarsha, Bob Corritore, Charlie Musselwhite, Rick Estrin, Lazy Lester, Mark Harman, Billy Boy Arnold, Johnny Dyer, Rob Piazza, Jr Wells, and many others.

She has been playing for about twenty five years, and been in several blues bands, from LA, Las Vegas, to Phoenix. Wild hair and high energy have become her trade mark.

Along with the cosmic talents of Mr. TJ (Tom Jennings) on guitar, New Orleans, Louisiana born Col.Dave DuPont on keys, Don Kolb from Albany, NY on bass, Anthony from Chicago on drums, it all makes for a fine mix.
SMOKESTACK LIGHTNING
SMOKESTACK LIGHTNING
Smokestack Lightning is a band that gets right to the point, and they use
the unmistakable sound of pain, triumph, loneliness and joy to get that
point across. They take the wisdom of the blues and the mesmerism of rock n roll to split tuneful atoms every time they hit the stage. Since they banded together in late 2009, they’ve
taken cues from their blues and rock forebears to create a truly American sound. The artists of this rising outfit are professionals of music and life. Bassist Mark Leos and drummer Pat Antone hold up the groove like twin Atlas’ supporting Smokestack Lightning’s world of rhythm and tempo. Guitarist Rik Leos and harmonica player Robert Jackson pounce on audiences with their fiery lead work.

In 2011 Smokestack Lightning was nominated for a 2012 Native American Music Award for “Best Blues Recording.”

In 2015 Smokestack Lightning won the Arizona Blues Showdown at the Rhythm Room. The event was hosted by the Phoenix Blues Society and featured several of the Valley’s top blues bands. In 2014, Smokestack Lightning came in second at the showdown.
Based in Arizona on the Gila River Indian Community, Smokestack Lightning has traveled beyond the reaches of their reservation and performed before a wide array of audiences at a variety of venues and events.
