Larry and His Flask
Larry and His Flask
Larry and His Flask are a high energy, five-piece carnival of a band that incorporate rock, folk, bluegrass, soul, brass band, punk and alt-country into their own unique sound. Some people call what they do "folk-punk", others call it "a bluegrass traveling circus" and everyone who's seen them live rightfully call Larry and His Flask "down right WILD". No matter what you call it, this is a band that has to be seen to be believed.

The Flask hails from central Oregon, smack dab in the middle of the beautiful Pacific Northwest, and is comprised of Jeshua Marshall on contra bass and baritone, Ian Cook on electric guitar and lead vocals, Andrew Carew on banjo, trombone and vocals, Dallin Bulkley on acoustic guitar and vocals, and Jamin Marshall on drums and vocals. Since brothers Jeshua and Jamin Marshall founded the band in 2003 the band has gone through several lineup changes and fundamental changes to their sound, but they have always held true to their reputation for an foot-stomping, mind-blowingly great time.
Flatfoot 56
Flatfoot 56
Celtic punk band from Chicago, Illinois. The group's use of Scottish Highland bagpipes has led to their classification as a Celtic punk band, comparable to Dropkick Murphys or Flogging Molly.The band formed in summer 2000 as a three-piece punk band. The three original members, who are brothers (Tobin Bawinkel, Justin Bawinkel, and Kyle Bawinkel), started writing songs in Fall 2000. By the Christmas season of the same year, they were playing their first concert. In January 2001, the band added Josh Robieson (bagpipes, guitar, mandolin) to the lineup and the band began including the Highland bagpipes and a second guitar into its sound.
In 2001 they recorded their first demo, then in Summer 2002, the band recorded their first full length album, entitled Rumble of 56. This recording was done in Rockford, Illinois, in a studio called the Noise Chamber. Their second album, Waves of War, was released in 2003.[3] Their song, "That's OK," had heavy radio play on stations across the Midwestern United States.[citation needed] It has been known as one of the higher-rated songs Flatfoot 56 has ever played and is a crowd favorite at live performances.
In 2004, Flatfoot 56 performed at the Cornerstone Festival in Illinois for a crowd of about 700 people.[citation needed] It was at this concert that the band released their third album, Knuckles Up. It has been the band's best-selling record, and the group continues to record and tour. The band has been signed to Flicker Records and has re-released Knuckles Up through the label. Their fourth record, Jungle of the Midwest Sea, was released on May 15, 2007.
After the release of their fourth album, the band embarked on tours. They also appeared in festivals like Skanksgiving '08,[4][5] Sonshine Festival 2008 and 2009, and the Warped Tour.[6] They are also set to appear at the Sonshine Festival 2011[7] They also appeared in the Warped Tour 2010 Tour Compilation album, and recorded a song for the Swingin Utters tribute album titled Untitled 21: A Juvenile Tribute to the Swingin' Utters.
In January 2009, the band announced on their website that they were recording a new, full-length album.[citation needed] On December 18 of the same year, it was officially announced that they had signed to California based Old Shoe Records for the release of their new album Black Thorn. The album was initially due for release St. Patricks Day (March 17) 2010, but was delayed until March 30, 2010.[citation needed] Upon its release, the album debuted at #2 on Billboard Heatseekers New Artist Chart. The first-week sales have also pushed the album into the Billboard Top 200 at #160, as well as other Billboard charts.[8]
The video for their 2010 single "Courage" was nominated for a 2010 Chicago/Midwest Emmy Award for 'Best Director.'
In 2010 the Flatfoot 56 songs "Shiny Eyes," "Son of Shame," and "We Grow Stronger" were featured in episodes 7, 8 and 9 of season 3 of the TV series Sons of Anarchy.[9]
The band is planning to start writing and recording new music in September 2011.[citation needed]
While not touring and playing with Flatfoot 56, Kyle Bawinkel sings for the hardcore side project Sexually Frustrated.[
Hard Fall Hearts
Hard Fall Hearts
Hailing from San Diego County this Punk/Rockabilly outfit is here to stay through the blood, sweat, and tears! Hard Fall Hearts' sound is both dark and distinct yet reverent to the roots of Rock-n-Roll. Front man Bryan Kelly, formerly of The Handsome Devils writes from the heart while still maintaining a hard edge. His haunting melodies captured the attention of Rocket and Eli Rinek formerly of Johnny and The Blades, Josie Kreuzer and The Del Fi's. With the manic slapping style of Rocket uniquely complimenting the steady, hard driving back beats from Eli, the rhythm section was complete. Playing a show twenty four hours after their first rehearsal in March of 08, these boys knew they were firing on all cylinders. In fact, that in itself motivated the title 'last 24 hours' for their full length debut album released in Oct 08. As always pressing the pedal to the metal these boys have been playing great Socal venues such as The Derby, Belly Up Tavern, Crash Mansion, El Cid, Canes, Redwood Bar and The Viper Room. Energetic and raw, their live show is guaranteed to make you wanna hang on for the ride. Now,while utilizing their creative momentum, HFH has begun writing and composing songs for the next album. This album is definitely on track for street release on Double Barrel Records March 26, 2010 and will be chalked full of raw, asskicking originals. Be sure to catch us at one of our upcoming shows and you just may get a little taste of what's to come. HFH is excited for what the future holds. This being said, these boys are most definitely a band you'll wanna keep your eye on. Making friends and fans one show at a time, Hard Fall Hearts are sure to turn any dull day into a wild night!
