Old Man Markley Biography
An amalgam of LA’s finest punk bands and seasoned bluegrass musicians, Old Man Markley is creating music that defies boundaries. Founded in the sunny San Fernando Valley, the members of Old Man Markley cut their teeth playing countless jams of bluegrass standards and covers of distinctly un-bluegrass songs done bluegrass style. Before long, the band began pulling original material out of the chaos that combined everything the band loved about the different styles of music they grew up playing and writing. During their first official show, the band's material was put to its first real test: when that night's audience began dancing on the bar and bought Pasadena's Old Towne Pub out of beer, Old Man Markley knew they had passed with flying colors. Three years later, Old Man Markley continues to grow their fan base with every new performance they take on.
Sean Wheeler & Zander Schloss Biography
Based on the resumes of vocalist Sean Wheeler (Throw Rag) and multi-instrumentalist Zander Schloss (Circle Jerks, The Weirdos, and Joe Strummer), it is not uncalled for to assume that rambunctious sounds would emanate from every one of their onstage collaborations - however, this working duo could not deviate any further from fan expectations. Playing an eclectic hybrid of folk, country, pop, ragtime, bluegrass and gospel, Wheeler and Schloss channel all of the frenzied energy and spirit of their earlier bands into the creation of soulful songs filled with Americana charm, a calming musical style not often heard this far west of the Mississippi.
The Tilt Biography
One of San Diego's hottest new bands, The Tilt is reviving the blues through their fresh outlook on the genre and its many open possibilities. Self-described as blues rock and "outlaw country," The Tilt never fail to deliver memorable musical experiences when they're onstage. Fronted by singer Jesse Malley and guitarist Jeff Irwin, The Tilt celebrated the release of their debut album Howlin' at a Belly Up show in January 2013 and are now appearing at venues throughout San Diego and beyond to promote the record.
