With the classic early 80s lineup now firmly in place, Fishbone is on a mission to reclaim its rightful spot among the rock-n-roll elite.

2018 is proving to be the year of a major comeback for Fishbone with a full calendar of scheduled dates for the U.S. and abroad. Highlights include performances at the Back To The Beach Festival in Huntington Beach, CA, Beer X Festival in San Diego, the Palladium in Worcester, MA with The Mighty, Mighty Bosstones, the Fuji Rock Festival in Yuzawa, Japan, as well as an appearance at Punk Rock Bowling in historic downtown Las Vegas. Many U.S. club shows and a European tour have also been added.

“It's absolutely unreal, at this stage of the game,” stated bassist and founding member, Norwood Fisher, “to be reunited as brothers and bandmates! The band feels as if it’s almost firing better than ever. We're all equally excited to get on the grind and bring this energy to the stage for those that have supported us throughout our career, the Whirl’d Wide Familyhood.”

Founded in 1979, Fishbone quickly claimed their spot at the table with their 1983 self titled release that included fan favorites like “Party at Ground Zero” and “Ugly”, and then followed that up in 1988 with their groundbreaking, critically acclaimed full length “Truth and Soul” album which featured the track “Freddie’s Dead”, the band’s first big hit on MTV.

Since then, Fishbone has gone on to release 9 more albums garnering major radio airplay and has made multiple appearances in various movies as well as performing live on the ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ show. In 2010, a documentary written and directed by Lev Anderson and Chris Metzler, and narrated by actor Laurence Fishburn, entitled “Everyday Sunshine: The Story of Fishbone”, was released and premiered at the 2010 Los Angeles Film Festival.

“I just want to say thank you to all of the Fishbone soldiers for donating their hearts and souls for the preservation of our band’s legacy in an OG Fishbone Classic Manifestation,” stated front man, Angelo Moore, “For me and for you.”
Roots of Creation
Roots of Creation
Billboard and radio chart topping, award-winning, international reggae-rock sensation Roots of Creation, are a touring powerhouse.

Whether on the festival circuit, performing at jam and reggae-rock favorites like Camp Bisco, Gathering of The Vibes, California Roots, Jungle Jam and Closer to the Sun, or sharing the stage at sold out shows with some of their diverse influences including Slightly Stoopid, The Wailers, and Michael Franti, reggae/rock/dubtronica band Roots of Creation (RoC) offers up a high-energy, infectious live music experience. Their mix of reggae riddims, conscious lyrics, spirited horn lines, and electronic beats makes crowds move and has their loyal underground fan base (RoC Family) and street team (Universal Soldiers) travelling the distance to pack venues from coast-to-coast.

Roots of Creation’s most recent release, Livin Free (2016), debuted No. 1 on both the Billboard Reggae and the Relix/ Radio charts. Livin Free is a triple record that includes three versions of each song--studio, dub, and acoustic that features guest performances by Melvin Seals (Jerry Garcia Band), Marshall “Ras MG” Goodman (Sublime, Long Beach Dub Allstars), the Rubblebucket horn section, Billy Kottage (Reel Big Fish), Grammy-nominated Pato Banton (Sting, UB40), and others. Additionally, the album welcomes guest production by Yeti Beats (Rebelution, Slightly Stoopid).

Now RoC has taken on a unique new project: Grateful Dub. Combining their longtime love for reggae-dub style music and the Grateful Dead, RoC reworked some of the world’s favorite Dead tunes into a new studio album. RoC had the pleasure of working in the studio with the legendary 5-time Grammy winner Errol Brown who was Bob Marley’s engineer and now Rebelution’s live sound engineer for this project. Grateful Dub is also being performed live in its entirety at festivals, theatres, and clubs around the country, and features rotating special guests including Melvin Seals (JGB), Scott Guberman (Phil Lesh) full horn sections, and others. Grateful Dub captures the spirit and magic of the Grateful Dead, while laying it down reggae-dub style.
Lions on the Moon
Lions on the Moon
Formed in the spring of 2014, Lions On The Moon is made up of four incredibly talented young musicians -- 13 year old singer and song writer Nicky Dylan Winegardner on rhythm guitar and lead vocals, 11 year old guitar prodigy Brandon “TAZ” Niederauer on lead guitar and vocals, 14 year old Dylan Niederauer on bass and vocals, and 15 year old Henry Thomas on drums. Their music is an original blend of rock, pop, funk, and blues, that delivers a youthful, energetic and infectious new sound filled with optimism, emotion, and intent.

The band came together when legendary Georgia musician, Col. Bruce Hampton, who is known for discovering young talent having nurtured the likes of Derek Trucks, Jimmy Herring, Oteil Burbridge, and many others, saw an opportunity to create magic between his young singer/songwriter friend Nicky Dylan and this new sensational young guitar player by the name of Brandon Niederauer. Bruce added that Brandon’s brother Dylan was also a very talented bass player and that they should form a band. After hours of jamming together for the first time, it was clear that Bruce was onto something, and it was the beginning of something very special. Within a month, another amazing staple to the band appeared. A local young drummer by the name of Henry Thomas, who had recently won "Darien's Got Talent," was invited to join the boys for a marathon jam session, and when it was over, Nicky stated emphatically, “We have found our John Bonham.” And the rest of history shall write itself.

Since appearing on the Ellen DeGeneres Show at the age of 10, Brandon (Taz) has firmly established himself as the young guitarist to watch on the music scene today. He has appeared on stage with virtually every member of the Allman Brothers Band including Gregg Allman, Warren Haynes, and Oteil Burbridge, as well as other notable musicians such as George Clinton, Eric Krasno, George Porter Jr., Robert Randolph, The Neville Brothers, and countless others. He has played at The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, Jam Cruise, The Big Blues Bender, and was the talk of The Bear Creek Music Festival in November 2014 and the National Association of Music Merchants (NAMM) in January 2015. He is invited regularly to sit in with top bands at the Brooklyn Bowl in NY and Las Vegas, and will appear in the March 2015 Relix magazine issue as an up and coming artist to watch.

The Lions' success begins with a genuine love of music, a passion for performing, and a burning desire to create original art. In their year together, the band has created a strong repertoire of original music and played multiple music festivals and venues, including Gathering of The Vibes, Greenwich Town Party, South Orange Performing Arts Center (SOPAC), Stamford Palace Theater, Brooklyn Bowl and B.B. King's Blues Club in Times Square. They have opened for Robert Randolph and the Family Band as well as Grammy Award winners, The Blind Boys of Alabama. And to top it all off, the band recently went into the studio to record their first album with the legendary music producer/engineer, Terry Manning (Ardent, Stax, Compass Point) and co-producer, Michael Mugrage. A strong beginning for a band, whose original music and extraordinary musicianship goes well beyond their years.
