The Dip
The Dip
Hailing from Seattle, The Dip is an electrifying seven-piece ensemble that melds vintage rhythm and blues and modern pop with "impeccably crafted, 60's-steeped soul" (KEXP). The group quickly gained notoriety throughout the Pacific Northwest for their eminently danceable live shows that feature the powerful vocals of frontman Tom Eddy (Beat Connection), bolstered by the deep pocket of their unmistakably detailed rhythm section, and the spirited melodies of “The Honeynut Horns”. Hard-hitting but sensitive, The Dip harkens back to the deep soul roots of the decades past and pays tribute to this history through the grit and grace of their performances. The band's 2015 self-titled debut, recorded to tape at Avast! Studios, propelled them to notable appearances at prodigious festivals such as Sasquatch! Music Festival, High Sierra Music Fest, Summer Meltdown, and Capitol Hill Block Party as well as built anticipation for their 2016 release, Won't Be Coming Back (EP). The band finds themselves prepping for a busy 2017 with a three week national tour scheduled for this Spring, and the release of a brand new single entitled “Sure Don’t Miss You” (vinyl release from Colemine Records). Whether young or old, you can’t help yourself from grinning ear-to-ear when you see these gentlemen hit the stage. I wouldn’t hold back dancing for that matter either! Ladies and gentleman, give it up for The Dip! Hit up the dance floor, and put it in your hip!
Fritz Montana
Fritz Montana
Fritz Montana is a San Francisco based indie blues rock trio laying the foundation for up and coming independent artists in the Bay Area. With uplifting jams and vocals that aim right for your heart, Fritz Montana has amounted a successful career including airplay on San Francisco’s LIVE 105.3 Soundcheck program and a slot on the 2015 BottleRock Napa lineup. While their roots originally began in a South Bay garage, Fritz Montana has taken over the local Bay Area independent music scene securing opening slots for some of music’s biggest names including: Glass Animals, Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Vampire Weekend, Queens of the Stone Age, Royal Blood, and more. Inspired by their recent growth as musicians, Fritz Montana returns in 2017 with their first EP in two years titled ‘Father Mother,’ detailing concepts of loneliness, confusion, hopelessness, naivete, and an enthusiasm to keep moving forward; the same emotions that drove them to play music. Staying true to their roots, these men have dedicated their lives to the betterment of American music and the creation of heart-melting soulful jams.
White Knuckles
White Knuckles
Hailing from San Francisco, White Knuckles is a psychedelic pop 4 piece led by Bobby Renz that features Sami Perez (The She’s), Alex Swain (Mahgeetah, Deltron), and Robinson Kuntz. Their debut EP (featuring Sami Perez and The She’s on backing vocals), released in March 2015, was the starting point for the band as Renz had until that point been working on the music by his lonesome. Bringing in some very talented musicians and multi-instrumentalists, who also work as engineers and producers in various studios around the bay, helped materialize the once solo project into a live musical experience. Since the release of the debut EP, they have been working on new recordings, due to release throughout 2017, that reflect the band as a whole rather than the initial solo vision that created the debut EP.

The music itself combines raw angular rhythms, aggressive guitars and bass, rich synths, all topped off with pop influenced vocals and song structures. The new music coming 2017 will display the bands ability to combine experimental sounds, textures, and melodies all the while capturing the catchy nature of pop music.
