The Toasters, are "Ska Pioneers" (Billboard magazine) and boldly go where no ska band has gone before. Having been compared to the Ramones, due to their longevity and adherence to core principles, the Toasters are held to be one of most influential ska bands out there. Their lean, mean ska machine has galvanized audiences and musicians alike with their embrace of the Jamaica-born pop music style that overwhelmed England in the 1960's, migrated to America in the early 1980s, and went global in the 1990s. The hallmark Toasters sound sits at the nexus of Reggae, Jazz, Punk and Soul and is the musical equivalent of a brass knuckle-duster.
Formed in New York City by British guitarist/frontman Rob "Bucket" Hingley in 1981, the Toasters exploded onto the Lower East Side scene. Cutting their teeth with a residency at legendary clubs like CBGB and Danceteria, the band has defied gravity and industry skeptics alike by staying true to their original 2-Tone ska roots, whilst logging over 4000 globe-trotting live appearances.
Longtime fans and critics agree, the current "International All-Stars" posse (featuring members of some of the world's greatest ska bands) is one of the most formidable in The Toasters' long and chequered history. Along with the irrepressible Bucket on lead vocals and guitar, The Beat's Andy Pearson is featured on bass. Expect to see Neil Johnson (Planet Smashers) and Tommy Quartulli on saxophone (The Allstonians), Greg Robinson (Mephiskapheles) on trombone and Jesse Hayes (Westbound Train) on drums. Special appearances by Arjen Bijleveld (Rotterdam Ska-Jazz Foundation) and Buford O'Sullivan (Easy Star All-Stars) are also to be expected in 2009. Legendary keyboardist Dave Barry rounds out the posse.
As the founder of Megalith Records (and former boss of the legendary Moon Ska Records, the most influential ska label of the 1990s) the Toasters' leader, Rob "Bucket" Hingley has a ska resume that trumps virtually anyone else in the business. With the aid and support of likeminded musicians such as producer Joe Jackson, who has worked with the band over the years, he has been able to compile a recorded legacy and a songwriting catalog. Among the many ska classics Hingley has penned: "Weekend In L.A.," "Matt Davis," "2-Tone Army," "Social Security," "Dub 56"—and the list goes on and on.
In the commercial realm, the Toasters have recorded jingles for AOL, Cisco Systems, Miller, Anheuser-Busch, and Coca-Cola, and have contributed to movie and television scores (Bleached, Bang!, MTV's Wildboyz, Mission Hill, Kablam!, Showtime's Brotherhood, etc.). Where Bucket and The Toasters truly excel, and live up to their reputation as one of the greatest bands of all time, however, is on the road. Averaging more than 200 performances a year, the band is well on its way to playing its 5,000th gig, a milestone they should achieve by the end of the decade.
Toasters fans from all over the world have known for a long time that their favourite ska band is the coolest group around, a true classic. Now, it's time for everyone else to catch up, and get hip to The Toasters!
The Toasters are currently sponsored by the following partners: Conn-Selmer wind instruments, Ludwig drums, Jagermeister, Ska Brewing, Pick World, Ernie Ball, Greasy Groove, Reverend Guitars and Instanbul Cymbals.... See MoreSee Less
Void Vator Bio-
Void Vator is a heavy hard rock band out of Los Angeles, California. Lucas Kanopa (Vocals/Guitar) and German Moura (Drums) visited Los Angeles from their native country of Uruguay to attend the NAMM show in winter of 2013, and immediately fell in love with the rock culture of the city. Both German and Lucas began working on establishing legal citizenship and played various bands in Los Angeles, chasing the elusive rock and roll dream as so many have before. In winter of 2015, Lucas met with guitarist Erik Kluiber at Amp Rehearsal Studios in North Hollywood. Erik had recently parted ways with his previous band Gypsyhawk (Metal Blade Records) and was looking for a new project to put his efforts into. Lucas and Erik hit it off musically and found that their playing styles, creativity, and musical direction were compatible and complimented each other. The first early version of Void Vator was formed around this time with a different lineup that did not yet feature either Lucas's childhood friend German Moura on drums or Sam Harman on bass.
Void Vator began writing material in North Hollywood and playing shows in the local Los Angeles Heavy Metal Rock scene. Erik was acquaintances with legendary rock producer Ulrich Wild from back in his days in Gypsyhawk. Ulrich had expressed interest in producing Gypsyhawk and stayed in touch with Erik after that band folded. Ulrich attended early Void Vator shows and one day approached the band with a recording deal with his new start up production company called WURMGROUP. The deal was modern and fair to both parties. Ulrich offered to produce and record and ep for Void Vator for no charge and split the proceeds evenly from the digital and physical sales of the EP. The music climate and industry has changed rapidly over the past 20 years. From his experience, Ulrich has been through all sorts of changes in his work environment even before pro tools was the standard recording software in studios. A forward thinker, Ulrich is always aware of shifts and changes in methodology and techniques within the music industry, and has always adapted to them so as not to be left behind. Void Vator was excited to be given this opportunity of being included as one of Ulrich's first WURMGROUP bands and have his production talents on their debut EP.
Before the EP was recorded, it became clear that the lineup at the time was not going to work out. Lucas reached out to his childhood friend German Moura and asked if he would be interested in playing drums in Void Vator. German was playing drums for White Wizzard at the time. German recorded drums for many songs that made it to the upcoming White Wizzard album which is scheduled for release this fall of 2017. Coincidentally, guitarist Erik Kluiber was the lead guitar player for White Wizzard on their 2010 recording “Over The Top” (Earache Records). Los Angeles is huge city, but the circle of professional heavy metal musicians is smaller than what you would expect. Many times, musicians will play in different versions of the same band only to find themselves in another band at the same time as in this case. Despite some of the drama associated with White Wizzard and it's revolving door of musicians, that band has always featured top caliber musicians. That being a fact, it is not surprising that both German and Erik were a part of White Wizzard's legacy at one point.
Along with German, Void Vator found a new bass player that would be in the band for about a year. This lineup recorded the debut ep “Dehumanized” at Ulrich's home studio dubbed “The Wilderness” in Los Angeles. Historic rock and metal albums have been recorded at Ulrich's cozy studio located behind his Los Angeles home. Brendon Small, the mastermind behind Metalocalypse and Galaktikon, recently released behind the scenes footage on Youtube to promote the new Galaktikon album which was recorded and shot right at “The Wilderness” studios. “Dehumanized” was recorded around the late fall/early winter holiday season of 2016. The debut single “Time has Come” was released digitally towards the beginning 2017 as a teaser to build a buzz for what was yet to come from Void Vator. “Time Has Come” was also released as the debut video shot and directed by German's girlfriend Janilee Svardstal. A talented film student and aspiring director, Janilee's video propelled the awareness of Void Vator and attained a global audience through well received Youtube views.
The “Time Has Come” video showcases the high energy and hook driven Heavy Rock approach that
Void Vator is becoming know for. Filled with catchy ear pleasing vocals, dual guitar theatrics, and driving precision beats, “Time Has Come” would be a contender for heavy rotation on Modern Rock Radio if Modern Rock Radio still played new music. Void Vator spent the first half of 2017 perfecting their stage craft by branching our regionally across Southern California and mixing the “Dehumanized” EP. It is also worth noting that just a little bit before this was all happening, singer/guitarist Lucas Kanopa filled in for Mark Sprietzer of DevilDriver to perform guitar duties during their slot at Ozzfest 2016 in Mexico City. This one off show was quite an exciting experience as you can imagine. It's common in Los Angeles for talented musicians to be involved in multiple music projects at the same time. Lucas also currently performs guitar for Heaven Below featuring Patrick Kennnison (Lita Ford, ex – Union Underground) and fills in for Patrick at the live rock karaoke showcase at Skinnys in North Hollywood when Patrick is on the road with Lita.
Nearing in on the “Dehumanized” cd release date of July 26th, 2017 complications arose between Void Vator and the bass player at the time. The band had been building up steam and getting out of town show offers in hard rock appreciating cities like San Diego on work days. This is common struggle for band members as it is complicated and difficult to make these shows happen, but happen they must for any serious rock band that wants to break out of their home town. This disagreement on gig policy lead to another lineup change. Void Vator changed up to a three piece for a short while to keep the momentum going. This change was not hard to pull off as Erik temporarily shifted over to bass which is the instrument he plays and while fronting and singing for Los Angeles stoner thrash metal band Ironaut. Void Vator pulled off the scheduled performances as a three piece, while looking for a suitable bass player to get band back to it's ideal four piece lineup. There must have been some sort of astrological phenomenon occurring because Sam Harman's name came up in discussion with Ulrich Wild. Erik had originally originally approached Sam a year previously to play bass for Void Vator, but Sam was busy in multiple projects including playing bass for Legal Tender featuring Jonah Nimoy the grandson of Leonard Nimoy (Spock) on guitar and vocals. This was a year later though, and Sam came out to a Wednesday night Void Vator performance at Skinnys Lounge in North Hollywood. After intensely watching the set, he said called back the following day and said, “I'm in, when is rehearsal?”. The next week he made his Void Vator debut onstage at the legendary Viper Room in West Hollywood.
After a successful “Dehumanized” Cd Release party on July 26th, 2017, the band has kept it's stride performing regionally in cities such as Las Vegas and working with Metal Assault, an up and coming Blog/Podcast/Heavy Metal promotions company based in Los Angeles that hosts shows all over California. Void Vator could not be any stronger than at his moment. Sam has brought a huge arsenal of creativity and talent to and already talented band. The piece is in place and the work has just begun. New songs are being constructed quickly while the “Dehumanized” CD is still being marketed. There plans for a new video in the work very soon and perhaps more videos to maximize the exposure of this outstanding debut release. The best way to keep up with Void Vator's activities is through social media pages such as Instagram and Facebook. Pick up “Dehumanized” directly through Wurmgroup's Big Cartel page at www.wurmgroup.bigcartel.com which offers both physical and digital copies. The cd is also available through all the standard digital outlets including itunes, amazon, spotify, etc. Pick up “Dehumanized” and get your first taste of what has just begun from Los Angeles's Void Vator.

Energy and passion meet explosive guitar riffs – with their debut album, “Straight To The Blood”, KRASHKARMA from Los Angeles have quickly risen through the ranks establishing themselves as one of the hottest touring acts. Receiving broad international success, Ralf Dietel (vocals, guitars) and Niki Skistimas (vocals, drums) are radiating waves of excitement – especially in Germany and the surrounding countries. Bleeding guitars, crushing rhythms and choruses that go straight for the throat fuse together creating an adrenaline-driven show that lies somewhere between heaven and hell. It’s these same elements that earned them the ROCK CITY NEWS AWARD for “Best independent touring band”. After their debut album in 2011 and extensive touring throughout the US, Europe – even gracing the metal scene in Morocco, Africa – they stand, poised to strike – ready to tear down new borders with their second album “Paint The Devil”. Ten years ago, German native, Ralf Dietel, took a plane to the United States to shape his vision of the perfect high energy song into an international context. The new material, recorded in Los Angeles and mixed in Berlin – embodies elements of the 2 cities that have so heavily influenced the band’s history. Drawing their intensive strength from generations of Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Alternative and Punk bands, fans of heavy guitar-driven music continue to be impressed and excited by their unique style. The commanding sound that is carried by Ralf’s urgent shouts and Niki’s soothing but sinful voice, deliver an urgency that doesn’t seem to fit into any pre-existing genres. The broad spectrum of media coverage and the consistently euphoric reviews underline that KRASHKARMA not only have conquered the scene of heavy music for themselves, but also have what it takes to become megastars in the rock’n’roll circus.

Fang one of the most crazy punk bands from the 80s is gonna rock your skull at SheasTavern Reno with Elderly Abuse from Oakland, Pug Skullz from the back woods of somewhere and our local boys Uncle Angry will be opening up this party
Fang is a punk rock band that originated in 1980. Fang was originally part of the punk rock scene in Berkeley, California in the 1980s. The band broke up in 1989 when key member Sam McBride was sent to prison for killing his girlfriend, Dixie Lee Carney. Upon his release, in 1995, McBride changed his name to Sammytown and reformed Fang.
Fang's first record under the name 'Fang' was actually more of an experimental record, according to the band; the "Yukon Fang" single. Fang guitarist Tom Flynn and bass player Brian Beattie, his former bandmate from the bands "Tapeworm" and "Safety Patrol", put out "Yukon Fang" as a duo and thus Fang was born. The original version of Fang toured the country once, only to break up shortly thereafter with Beattie moving on to Texas where he later formed the band Glass Eye. In the early fall of 1981 Flynn began playing with drummer Chris Ritter. They soon added bass player Chris Wilson and began playing shows in the SF Bay area as a three piece, with Flynn on vocals.While this was happening, Sam McBride, the band's soon-to-be vocalist, was singing with future Fang drummer Greg Langston in the band "Shut up". In early 1982 Ritter was replaced with drummer Joel Fox, and at Fox's audition he brought along his friend McBride, who volunteered to be the band's singer. The lineup thus solidified as McBride (vocals), Chris Wilson (bass), Tom Flynn (guitar), and Joel Fox (drums). Together they contributed the song "Fun with Acid" on the Not so Quiet on the Western Front compilation LP. Shortly thereafter, guitarist Tom Flynn created "Boner Records" and released their debut LP and EP Landshark and Where the Wild Things Are. Tim Stiletto drummed on the latter. These two releases are now considered classic East Bay punk.
In January 1986, the "Spun Helga" LP was recorded in West Germany with McBride singing vocals, and two Germans named Joe (Guitar) and Ollie (Drums) playing instruments. We Bite Records in Germany released the LP, but in the U.S. it was handled by National Trust Records. Fang next released was 1987's "A Mi Ga Sfafas?" (The title literally means "Give Me Head?"). The lineup during this era was McBride, Bill Collins (guitar), Joe Miller (bass), and Steve Chinn (drums). Drummer Mike Branum replaced Chinn and Fang recorded the album "Pissed-Off Buddah", which remained unreleased until 2008, when it was released with Fang's other albums "Spun Helga" and "A Mi Ga Sfafas?"
In 1989, during a heroin binge, Sam McBride strangled his girlfriend, Dixie Lee Carney, to death and was sentenced to six years in prison for voluntary manslaughter.
After a long break, Fang regrouped in 1996 and put out the "Electric Chair" single on Man's Ruin Records. The lineup at this time included Sam McBride (vocals) (Sam had recently legally changed his name to "Sammytown"), Greg Langston (Drums), Bill Burnett (Guitar) and Josh Levine (Bass). This incarnation of the Band recorded the "American Nightmare" LP on Wingnut Records.
In 1989, Boner Records released Fang's first compilation album, Landshark/Where the Wild Thing Are. The album included Fang's debut album and debut EP.
In 1999, Jim Martin (from Faith No More) joined on guitar, and recorded four songs for the Hello Records CD Fish and Vegetables, which was released as a split LP by fellow punk rock groups Dr. Know, and Hellions In May 2000, Sammytown and Jim Martin, along with Casey Orr (Gwar, Rigor Mortis) on bass, and Dallas drummer Clint Phillips did two shows in Texas. One at Trees in Dallas, and a sold out show at Emo's in Austin.
By 2001, the band was composed of Sammytown, Brian Schopflin (bass), Jonny Manak (guitar), Alby Wasted (guitar),and Ike Eichensehr (drums). Sammytown, Brian, Jonny, Alby and Ike also started The Resistoleros, a Oakland-based rock 'n' roll band. Steel Cage Records released the Resistoleros CD Rock 'N Roll Napalm in 2003.
In 2004, the Live Cheap" CD' came out on Malt Soda Recordings featuring Sammytown (vocals), Brian Schopflin (bass), Ike Eichensehr (drums), Alby Wasted (guitar) and Jimmy Crucifix (guitarist for 1980s hardcore band Crucifix and hard rock band Proudflesh) also on guitar. This is the only Fang recording with two guitarists.
In 2004, the band toured the United States. Sammytown, Jimmy Crucifix (guitar), Brian Schopflin (bass)/Bubba Dennis (bass) and Ike Eichensehr (drums) toured as Fang in the Spring of 2004 and as the Resistoleros and Fang in November 2004 with Sam, Jimmy, Brian, Ike and Greg Elliott (rhythm guitar).
In January 2005, Sammy, Jimmy, Brian and Ike recorded a cover of Agression's (1980s hardcore–Narcore band) song "Salty Leather" for a tribute to Agression members Mark Hickey and Henry Knowles, who had died. Dave Haro and JellyRoll came up with the idea for the tribute. The CD, Taking Out A Little Agression, was released on Dr. Strange Records in 2007 and featured bands including JFA, McRad, DI, Ill Repute, Dr. Know, Verbal Abuse, MDC, Oppressed Logic, Shattered Faith and Dave Haro–JellyRoll's band KatKiller.
From 2005–2008, Fang performed with the steady line-up of Sammytown, Jimmy Crucifix, Brian Schopflin, and Greg Langsten (returning to the drums). As of writing (July, 2012) the line-up consists of Sammytown (Vocals), Jamey Dangerous (Drums), Brian Schopflin (Bass), J-Stain Werthless (Lead Guitar), Mat ('The Kid') McCoy (Guitar). Original member Tom Flynn has re-emerged and played live with the band on at least one occasion in 2012. He also contributed to the latest Fang album, 'Here Come the Cops".
In 2011, Malt Soda released the CD "Pissed Off Buddha", comprising three Fang albums - "Spun Helga", "A Mi Ga Sfafas?", and "Pissed Off Buddha" - the latter being a previously unreleased album recorded in 1988, in a double disc package that included a live DVD of the band.... See MoreSee Less

From early days growing up in the southeast Los Angeles suburb of Downey, California under the tutelage of T-Bone Walker and Big Joe Turner to their emergence as central figures in the eclectic LA punk/rock scene of the early ‘80s to their current status as internationally-renowned influences in their own right, the Blasters have spent their lives exploring and expressing the deep and diverse musical legacy that is best described by the title of their first album: American Music.
A performance by today’s Blasters––vocalist-guitarist Phil Alvin, drummer Bill Bateman, bassist John Bazz, and guitarist Keith Wyatt––reflects influences that range from George Jones and Carl Perkins to Howlin’ Wolf, James Brown and Bo Diddley. The band’s 1980 debut album American Music (Rollin’ Rock) was a powerful collection of fresh, distinctive performances that shattered the artificial boundaries between blues, rockabilly, country, R&B and rock & roll. The next three albums for Slash/Warner Bros. (The Blasters, Non-Fiction, and Hard Line) increasingly featured the unique songwriting voice of original guitarist Dave Alvin as the band’s lineup expanded to include pianist Gene Taylor plus saxophonists Steve Berlin and New Orleans legend Lee Allen (“the man who put a saxophone in rock & roll”). As the Blasters’ fame grew, they began to draw accolades from artists as diverse as Bruce Springsteen, Eric Clapton and Queen, and in turn the band encouraged and supported still up-and-coming LA musical peers such as Dwight Yoakum and Los Lobos
In 1986, Dave Alvin left the band to pursue a solo career, and over the next decade a series of renowned guitarists including Billy Zoom, Michael “Hollywood Fats” Mann, Greg “Smokey” Hormel, and James Intveld filled the position. Phil Alvin simultaneously expanded his own musical efforts with the release of two acclaimed solo albums, Unsung Stories (Slash/Warner) in 1986 and County Fair 2000 (Hightone) in 1994.
In 1996, current guitarist Keith Wyatt joined the lineup and the Blasters continued touring steadily in the US and Europe before returning to the studio in 2004 to record 4-11-44 (Rainman). After the departure of drummer Jerry Angel, the band reunited with original member Bill Bateman and subsequently released their 2012 CD Fun on Saturday Night (Rip Cat). Meanwhile, the Blasters’ catalog was renewed with reissues of American Music along with two Slash/Warner compilations (Testament and The Blasters Collection) and the live recordings Trouble Bound and Going Home Live (Shout Factory).
Blasters shows have been described as “a cross between Creedence and the Clash,” with a display of passion and energy only deepened by decades of experience. For all of the ways in which the world has changed in the past few decades, one thing is still guaranteed: the Blasters play American Music.... See MoreSee Less
