Louis Prima Jr. and the Witnesses

Louis_Prima_Jr-by_Denise_Truscello

Louis Prima Jr. & The Witnesses return with Blow, a new-swing stomping set, for sophomore music release.

The new title follows the band’s debut, Return of the Wildest!, released in 2012. The collection features 11 tracks, opening with title track “Blow,” the album’s namesake, which quickly sets a boisterous mood. The stirring and anthemic “Go Let’s Go,” also the release’s lead single, follows the introduction to continue the vibe. The third track, “New Orleans,” goes even a step further to showcase the group’s bona fide flair for popular blues rock. The overall up-tempo release takes some breather moments with such tracks as “Someday,” which features the guest vocals of singer Leslie Spencer, and closing number “Those Million Things.” Two truly unexpected gems are found three quarters of the way into the release. The first is “That’s My Home,” featuring vocals of Prima Jr.’s own famed and legendary singing father Louis Prima, and the cover of the ’80s Adam Ant pop hit “Goody Two Shoes.”

Prima Jr. & The Witnesses’ Blow is one release with enough sonic goodies to stir any listening into dancing feet. The is due out, on Warrior Records, June 10, 2014.

The Great Escape

page-photo-133049

What is your greatest Escape? Where would you go if you could? Would it be far away? Or very close to your heart?

The Great Escape is an LA-Based rock band comprised of veteran songwriters Amie Miriello, Malte Hagemeister, and Kristian Nord. Originally paired by the powers that be to write for other artists, these wandering minstrel souls found a remarkable chemistry with each other. The very first song they wrote was featured on a JC Penny commercial that debuted during the broadcast of The Academy Awards. Soon after, the band began recording their debut EP.

Despite their inner-industry beginnings, The Great Escape is a champion of the independent spirit. They come from all over the world, with influences that defy any specific era. They are raw, real, and unafraid to let their roots be seen. They are vibe incarnate – just close your eyes, listen, and follow your heart.

Head Of The Herd

HOTH_Edit3

Head of the Herd is modern blues with a hell of an edge.

The Vancouver based band has recently completed their sophomore record and they’ve unmistakably found their stride. Harnessing the energy of their live show, this record highlights the beastly, melodic, storytelling prowess that is Head of the Herd. They created the album in two sessions. The first with one of rock’s most sought after producers Gggarth Richardson, the man behind Rage Against the Machine’s chart topping debut, Biffy Clyro’s 2013 UK #1 album “Opposites” and countless in between. The second session was produced by Rick Jackett & James Black from the multi-platinum group Finger Eleven. The album will be named after the first single, a duet with Jasmin Parkin from Mother Mother titled “By This Time Tomorrow.” The song has been used by the NHL & Hockey Night in Canada for a playoff montage, and as of late June hit #1 on the national rock charts.

In the time since the release of their debut LP “On The House,” Head of the Herd has gained significant momentum. Being named Fox Seeds winners (previous winners include Nickelback, Matthew Good Bif Naked & More) was only the beginning. They’ve toured across the Country for Canadian Music Week, released music videos for their radio singles, played Telusfest, the Grey Cup Festival, and have opened for Guns n’ Roses, Alice in Chains, The Sheepdogs, Monster Truck and the Trews. Their single “Knock Me Down” has taken them on and beyond the radio, being featured in Rip Curl and well as GT Bikes/Red Bull videos online.

Their debut single “Ain’t My Day” has been played on radio throughout Western Canada and online, with a video by acclaimed director Luke Hansen-MacDonald. And recently, Billabong has used their chilling tale of “Erinyes” for their Damn AM TV show.

Head of the Herd is modern blues with a hell of an edge, and they’re proud to unveil their sophomore LP, “By This Time Tomorrow.”

Jessta James

jessta

Jessta James may not be from the South, but the Montana native surely knows what country is. “Out here it’s about the cowboy way, ranching and rodeos,” country’s innovative new up and comer says.

A late bloomer artistically, Jessta didn’t write his first song until he was 24 years old, but the bug quickly bit him and he was hooked. “I wrote probably 150 songs over a year and a half,” the former construction worker says. “If I had an idea while I was at work, I’d write it on a two by four or a piece of cardboard I’d ripped from a box of nails.”

Even though Jessta is country through and through, it wasn’t until he discovered artists such as Eric Church, Big & Rich and Brantley Gilbert, among others, that he realized his unique blend of country rock infused with hip hop, wild west and classic rock could find mainstream success. After all, today’s iPod generation of country fans are just as comfortable listening to Jason Aldean as Ludacris and Lynyrd Skynyrd. “They’ve paved the way for my music,” says Jessta.

Front and center in Jessta’s life is his Christianity, which is evident on his album. There are many references to his spirituality—both overt and subtle. “I always want my music to make an impact and share a message,” Jessta says. “I’ve always just done what God has put in my heart as far as writing songs. What I’ve found is that it’s reaching people no matter what their faith is. It’s not coming across to people as preachy, it’s coming across as real.”

DJ Godfather

djg

Nominated #15 in the top 100 DJs by DJ Times Magazine and Pioneer Pro DJ for 2011- DJ Godfather plays it all from open format/mashup parties to the deepest ghetto tech parties incorporating his battle style turntablism in his sets. He has played across the globe numerous times in cities all over Europe, Asia, Australia, United States, Canada, China, Japan and South America and receives worldwide recognition. DJ Godfather had one of the hottest party albums of 2010 entitled VIP Status on Secretremix Records. This open format style album has it all from electro house to party tracks to ghetto tech! 15 of some of the hottest party tracks you’ll hear this year featuring artists like Pittsburgh Slim, Good Money, Brilliance, Dan Diamond, Silent Riot, Jenna Milan and Lil Mz 313, and with remixes from some of the hottest remixers like Discofries, DJ Serafin, DJ Deville, DJ X-Change, Discotech any many more !

DJ Godfather is considered one of the founding fathers of the genre we now know as Ghetto Tech. He started DJing at the age of 15 with the help of, now business partner, DJ Dick. Within a few months of getting his turntables, Godfather was already playing in nightclubs and after hour parties all over Detroit. He started producing at the age of 17 for his first Miami Bass style group Bass Association. With the buzz of a few singles off the Bass Association album on 3 Detroit radio stations, Godfather made his first solo record at the age of 18 on the now Twilight 76 Records entitled “Work Dat”. Taking his turntablism skills and mixing Detroit Techno music with Miami Bass music, and new sound was born, Ghetto Tech. With the formation of their new record label Twilight 76 with partners DJ Dick and Brian Gillespie, he took his talent and turned it into an entire business creating 3 other labels known as Databass Records, D.E.T. Only (An exclusive label with only 1000 copies of each release), and Juke Trax (A label dedicated to the Chicago style of Ghetto House and Juke music). With all 4 record labels combined, Godfather and his partners released over 250 vinyl releases and mix CD releases, selling over 700,000 units worldwide.

iPunx

 

ipunx2Since 2005, iPunx has been one of Europe’s great mashup pioneers. After touring massively in and around Germany, he’s landed with a mashed-up crash here in Venice, CA.

In the initial 3 smash EP’s and seamless mashup album “Destroying Dancefloor”, IPunx showcased an eclectic mix of house, rock, hiphop, punk and electro, ending up in many DJ charts around the world, including BBC Pete Tong’s Buzz charts (#3). Initially a duo, and in spite of years of successful touring, the two members of iPunx parted ways in the late 2000′s to pursue individual careers.

After relocating to LA, a now solo iPunx resurrected the project in 2013. A music producer and composer during the day, it was time to play with the unorthodox mix/mashes he truly loves. “Anybody can DJ hits. I wanna play obscure stuff that is entertaining as well. I love the surprise element”. The excitement is infectious! In West LA, iPunx fan base is growing fast.

iPunx sound ranges from chill sunrise sets with little known acoustic covers to party sets with funky mashups and remixes that combine electro, hip-hop, dub step, rock, pop, soul, folk, funk and party breaks. His credo: “Never originals. Always fun.” What’s the crowd’s reaction? ” Usually, WTF is that?” And then their hips are shaking and they’re singing along with giant smiles plastered on their faces.

iPunx has played crazy fun parties in 2013 in Joshua Tree, Baja, CA and with Boogaloo and Dirty Beetles at Burning Man. You can groove live to his mixalicious mashups weekly at The Bank of Venice on the Windward Circle. Check out www.iPunx.com for upcoming performances and new releases.

Louis Prima Jr. and The Witnesses single debut from BLOW album – “Go Lets Go”

Hunnypot is proud to present the 1st single from Louis Prima Jr and The Witnesses BLOW album out June 10th, 2014. Check the official lyric video for “Go Lets Go,” there are Easter Eggs a plenty.

BLOW is as eclectic and unique as each member of my powerhouse band. With our collective talents and diverse musical tastes, we wind up with a raucous roller coaster ride of tail-shakin’, foot-stampin’, horn-driven smiles. We didn’t set out to simply write music we thought the fans wanted to hear. We wanted to challenge ourselves musically and also challenge the listener. If music does not come honestly from your soul, it will ultimately be short lived,”

Louis Prima Jr. – BLOW Album Release Party 6/6/14!

LPJ 6.6TheMintBlowFlyer

Louis Prima Jr. & the Witnesses – BLOW 6/6/14

Louis Prima Jr. and the Witnesses (louisprimajr.com) are bringing Prima music into the 21st century. Not content to sit on the legacy they so passionately protect, LPJ and the band are taking a page from his father’s playbook, by wailing Prima Swing like it’s 2014.

Less concerned about reliving the past than about creating a future for it, Louis Prima Jr and the Witnesses bring new energy and a current attitude to the masses with The Wildest Show this side of the 1960’s. Since their breakout performance at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival (aka Jazz Fest), #TeamPrima has performed everywhere from Seattle to Palermo, from small clubs to performing arts centers, from casino showrooms to music festivals, and from Access Hollywood Live to PBS.?
LPJ and the Band are currently touring in support of their second Warrior Records/Universal Music Distribution (warriorrecords.com) release, BLOW – a collection of original music (save for a couple of surprises) as eclectic and unique as each member of this powerhouse band. Building off of the success of their critically acclaimed debut CD Return of the Wildest!, the band has brought together many years of diverse musical tastes into their second offering. From the first thunderous stomps of the title track, it is evident that this isn’t your daddy’s swing music, but a raucous roller coaster ride of tail-shakin’, foot-stampin’, horn-driven smiles.

If you’ve seen them in concert, you’ll know a bit about what to expect from the musical minds of the Witnesses. As energetic and over-the-top as their live shows, BLOW continues the ever-changing musical journey that Prima Sr. began in the 30s. “With the band’s collective talents and diverse musical tastes, we wind up with a sound unique to this band, while staying true to the boisterous Prima style,” says Louis. “We didn’t set out to simply write music we thought the fans wanted to hear. We wanted to challenge ourselves musically and also challenge the listener. You can’t fool the fans by trying to force the word ‘daddy-o’ into every song. If music does not come honestly from your soul, it will ultimately be short lived.”

Recorded at Capitol Records in Studio B, where Prima Sr. recorded his hits of the 50s and 60s, the seriousness of this music is masked only by the obvious fun that was had making it. It’s been 50 years since legendary Prima music shook the walls of Capitol. A new legend is being born, and it will BLOW you away!
