MIKE DUGAN

Mike has performed extensively throughout America, appearing at comedy clubs, colleges, corporate events, and as an opening act for musical artists such as Roy Orbison, Ricki Lee Jones, Chuck Berry, Harry Belafonte, Todd Rundgren, John Hiatt, Kenny G, and Shawn Colvin. Dugan spent two years touring his comedy throughout Europe and the UK while developing Men Fake Foreplay, and has had the privilege of performing 'Men Fake Foreplay' in London, Paris, Amsterdam, and at The Assembly Rooms at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland.
 
      Mike grew up in Ramsey, New Jersey and began performing stand up comedy as a regular at New York's famed  'Catch a Rising Star' Comedy Club in 1985. In early 1987 he set out for San Francisco's 'Holy City Zoo' Comedy Club to experience what was then the "hands down best comedy scene in the country", and by the end of 1988 he had won the prestigious San Francisco International Stand-up Comedy Competition, capping off the month-long event with two shows for six thousand comedy fans at Davies Symphony Hall. A move to Los Angeles quickly led to a shot on 'The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson'. Johnny raved, and that debut has led to over seventy national television appearances, including one more spot on "Johnny" before his retirement and another appearance with Jay Leno - making Mike one of only a handful of comics to have appeared on 'The Tonight Show' with both Johnny and Jay. 

   Mike's stand up and hosting has been a favorite at corporate events for companies the likes of Oracle, Xerox, Christian Brothers, The U.S. Air Force, Vintners International, California Homebuilders Association, Bank of America and Visa, to name just a few.  Mike has also lent his talents to many great causes, having performed or hosted at benefits for Heal the Bay, The American Red Cross, Stanford University Neonatal Foundation, Katrina Relief, Pepsi All Stars for Sickle Cell Anemia, The Guardians Jewish Home for the Aging, San Jose Ballet, Jewish Community League, United Cerebral Palsy, The Peace Alliance, Bread & Roses, Quake Relief w/ Crosby Stills and Nash, and American Cancer Society.  Most recently Mike performed, at Paula's request, at The Nevada Ballet Tribute to Paula Abdul at The Wynn Hotel Las Vegas.

SMOKIN JOE KUBEK & BNOIS KING

Smokin' Joe Kubek and Bnois King, one of the most talented guitar tandems in any genre, have signed a recording agreement with Blind Pig Records.  The pact marks a reunion between the veteran music duo and the label, which issued the group's CD entitled Roadhouse Research in 2003 and released Show Me The Money the following year.   In 2006, Blind Pig released a live full length concert DVD and a CD titled My Heart's In Texas that was recorded in Fort Worth on New Year's Eve. 

 

Kubek and King, who have been playing together for twenty-five years, have developed into a dynamic musical tour de force, with Joe's flame-throwing guitar work complemented by Bnois' cool, jazz-inflected playing and soulful vocals. Their incendiary live shows feature two top flight guitarists intuitively locked in with each other and backed by a firepower rhythm section, making for a powerful and irresistible combination.

 

Current plans call for recording to begin this fall, with the first album under the multi-record deal to be released in early 2015.

 

Said Kubek, "We are very excited to be back with Blind Pig.  Some of the best stuff we perform on stage, the favorites that our treasured fans from all over come to hear, is material we recorded for Blind Pig.  It's a label that always delivers the very best quality music to fans and radio, and we're all about giving our fans and blues radio our very best artistry.  Bnois and I are looking forward to our next release coming out on the Blind Pig label.  See ya soon..."

COLE SWINDELL

Now and then, a song and artist can't be denied.

            A few months back, Cole Swindell was nothing more or less than a terrific songwriter with a Nashville publishing deal and a growing reputation as one of the city's most exciting young performers. Now, he's on the road to stardom.

            The gateway is "Chillin' It," a song as infectious and groove-laden as anything out there, with a laid-back summertime charm that perfectly captures the guy who wrote and performs it. Independent radio airplay and social media quickly turned it into a sensation that sold more than 125,000 copies, although Cole was unsigned and the song was only available online! A sold-out performance at a 600-seat club in Atlanta did the rest. It was attended by Nashville label reps wanting to see if the kid from tiny Bronwood, Georgia, could put on stage what he had put on CD. The offers that poured in from virtually every major label meant the answer was an absolute "yes."

            In fact, Cole's high-energy show wins converts every time he steps in front of a crowd, whether as a headliner in a club or as an opening act in front of 20,000 people.

            "Honestly," he says, "I just want it to be fun. I get people who see me on stage who say, 'Hey, it looks like you're having the time of your life up there,' and I really am. Every night is just a blast and they join in."

            Not bad for a guy who just three years ago was selling merchandise on tour with Luke Bryan, whom he'd once opened some shows for in Georgia. But such was his drive that there wasn't a wasted moment on the road. He watched Luke and every act he performed with, learning what worked with crowds, and he poured what he was learning into the songs he was writing.

            Eventually, those songs earned him a staff writers' gig at Sony ATV, and with each co-write he expanded his circle of supporters.

            "The publishing company told me, 'People are calling back and wanting more dates,’” he says. “’It seems like this town is getting behind you.' So I kept writing and paying my dues, working hard to get to the point where I deserved to be in the room with the major writers, people whose songs I was singing in college bars just a few years ago."

            Meanwhile, he kept up his performing chops with solo and opening slot gigs, and finally his abilities as both a writer and performer came together on "Chillin' It," which captures all the restless energy that makes his one of the most compelling and high-energy shows in the business.

            "My band laughs at me because I'm a pacer," he says. "I get anxious every time I go on stage. My music means the world to me, so if I wasn’t jumping around backstage getting amped up for the show, something would be wrong. Then, when I hit the stage, I just want to get those first lyrics out. It's like football in high school. On the kickoff, once you get that first hit in, you're in your groove. From then on, it's wide open. I'm having fun."

            Then he works to keep them that way.

            "I don't want to have a song where people feel comfortable going to get a beer," he says. "Once we get started, I don't want them to risk missing what's next. I want them to leave saying, 'That's the best show I've ever seen.'"

            As anyone who's seen him perform can attest, it's working, and now, with "Chillin' It" hitting airwaves everywhere, fans nationwide can get their first look at one of country's most compelling performers.

            "The folks who are buying music just want to have fun," he says, "and 'Chillin’ It' is the perfect song to introduce me to them. It isn't a full-out party song, and it isn't serious. Like it says, it's just a chill song, and that's just me."

MAN IN BLACK - A TRIBUTE TO JOHNNY CASH

Close your eyes and imagine the unique sound of Johnny Cash, as if it were live and for the first time in the early 1960's. Now open your eyes and experience this great singer songwriter recreated on stage in the hit musical tribute, The Man In Black, A Tribute to Johnny Cash.

 

The Man In Black Show offers a retro look, sound and feel into the performance of American Icon Johnny Cash. The show delivers the raw prowess that made Johnny Cash a 20th century pop culture figure, while capturing his ability to cross musical genres, age and ethnic barriers to bring a classic sound that is immediately recognized. The show also features hits made famous with June Carter Cash and goes beyond the look of a younger Cash to feature his music right up to his death in September of 2003.

 

Widely acclaimed by the general public and critics alike the star of The Man in Black Show, Shawn Barker, is considered as the pre-eminent Johnny Cash tribute artist as well as an accomplished musician and singer songwriter. Having an uncanny resemblance to the younger Cash, his portrayal is stunningly accurate and remarkably authentic.

NICK MOSS BAND

Nick Moss Band

Nick Moss and his band have been featured performers at blues festivals across the globe, but it’s at home in Chicago – the capital city of the blues – where he and his band get the ultimate stamp of approval from one Hall of Famer and blues icon Buddy Guy. Music fans the world over come to his famous club where they’ll often find Moss playing that prestigious stage, booked by the icon himself because “Nick is a favorite at my club, Legends. He always works hard to please the audience.” Other luminaries are equally effusive in their praise, rare in the competitive world of guitar gods, as none other than former Roomful of Blues bandleader and distinguished solo artist Ronnie Earl declares “Nick Moss is my favorite guitarist,” high praise from one of the greatest practitioners of the instrument.

Moss’ recording career has brought him numerous accolades and his albums have been staples at blues radio nationwide, but he crosses boundaries now, and his songs have scored at rock and jam band stations as well. As a result, 2011’s Here I Am debuted at an impressive #2 on the Relix/Jambands.com Radio Chart.

Discover for yourself what Buddy Guy, Ronnie Earl, Jimmy Thackery and audiences the world over already know: an evening with Nick Moss is an unforgettable experience – not one to be missed!

DAVID ALLAN COE

David Allan Coe is one of the most celebrated and controversial artists to emerge from the outlaw country movement; a gifted songwriter and a charismatic performer, Coe is also a man who has followed his own path even when it meant traveling the hard way, and his life has been full of bad luck and misadventure. Few artists in any genre have as many tall tales and wild allegations attached to their name (some of which have been spread by Coe himself), and there are plenty of fans who love him or hate him for reasons that have nothing to do with his music. Despite it all, Coe's songwriting reveals a greater intelligence and emotional range than his reputation would suggest, and his best music is a bracing mixture of country, blues, and rock & roll.

THE SPAZMATICS

String Theory to an upstart pupil in front of the entire student body and faculty. As agreed to by both parties, the loser would have to do anything that the winner demanded, and the victorious prodigy demanded that Mr. Stigwood perform "She Blinded Me With Science" by Thomas Dolby during half-time at an upcoming state basketball championship game.

Having no musical background and desperate to not go down in total humiliation, Professor Stigwood tapped the genius of electronics teacher Eugene MeeGene, who had achieved international acclaim in 1981 for his invention of "robot" drums. When MeeGene (who was also the girls water polo coach at Alta Dena Middle School) explained that most of the music could be generated by computers, and that all he needed was a couple of decent musicians to fill in the holes, Stigwood was ecstatic. To round out the lineup, Stigwood brought in his brother, Milton on bass, and teacher's assistant, Shureman on guitar.

When the group took center court that evening, members of the hip elite began heckling them with jibes of "geek" and "nerd," while everyone else howled with laughter. But once they broke into the opening salvo of "Science," the nonbelievers were stunned by the group's authenticity of production, world class musicianship, and tight choreography. The performance came to a climax when Stigwood grabbed one of the cheerleaders and began doing the "Belinda" up and down the court with her in tow. When it was all over, the crowd rose in a standing ovation, and the Spazmatics were born.

FACT:

From the creators of the World Famous Afrodisiacs comes the Spazmatics. All the awesome sounds, styles, and way cool dance steps from the 1980's decade we'd love to forget. Complete with skinny ties, Brill Creamed hair, and horn-rimmed glasses, the Spazmatics recapture all the best of the worst. Outstanding musicianship combined with creative flair and style makes for an evening of pure energy and entertainment. So tonight we're gonna party like it's 1999; only it's not!

JIMMY THACKERY

Whether Jimmy Thackery headlines a festival in South Dakota or jams for hours in one of numerous blues bars that dot the musical landscape, he'll always unleash an intense volley of rockin' blues guitar guaranteed to leave crowds emotionally spent. His double edged guitar dynamics allow him to fire off tracer missiles, bend a note so it will fit under a limbo bar, run off dive bomber riffs, and find space within the trembling of one stinging note. "I put all my senses on hold and find the zone and follow what's inside. There's an electricity from your mind to your heart to your fingers. You just try and remember to breathe."

He's one of the few blues guitarists who learned first-hand from the masters of the blues, not off a blues record or DVD. Though most associate Jimmy with his 15 years as the co-founder of the Nighthawks, he ended his time with them in 1987. Since then, Jimmy has been on the road as a solo musician for 15 years doing nearly 300 shows a year proving each night that he is still the guitar powerhouse in the blues.

Thackery has lived the life of a true road warrior; he's absorbed the artistic lessons of life and filtered them into his guitar playing and song writing. To get where he is today, Jimmy has journeyed a highway of life filled with a series of twists and turns. He met all the right people and they have had a permanent influence on him.

It was Thackery's time on stage with Muddy Waters that is branded deep within his musical soul. "Muddy was one of those guys who was constantly encouraging. He never told you what to do, but he always told you what you were doing wrong. He never minced words about that. 

"The first time on stage with Muddy, I was in such awe of him that I just kept my eyes and ears open and just picked up on everything he did. It was the dynamics they had that became so ingrained in us. We heard it on the records and then stood on stage and saw how it worked."
