The Hooten Hallers
The Hooten Hallers
Columbia, MO trio The Hooten Hallers are known for hard-traveling and wild, energetic live shows, criss-crossing their way through North America and Europe with their seemingly endless tour schedule. They continue their decade-long search for their roots, drawing from the surrounding agricultural lifestyles, the river communities, the college kids and the tweakers that roam Columbia, Missouri, all in the looming foothills of the Ozark Mountains.

The myriad of influences in their music range from pre-war blues to punk rock to dark Americana, with a thematic penchant for the strange and the unexplained. In the same vein, the Hooten Hallers’ music isn’t quite Americana and it’s not quite punk, but a bit of both, fused together in a drunken tangle.

The Hooten Hallers’ new self-titled album, out April 21, 2017 on Big Muddy Records, is the culmination of their experiences from 10 years of performing and travelling together. They’ve injected their new album with the stories and characters they’ve been meeting on the road all this time. This combined with hometown pride is key to The Hooten Hallers’ ability to ride the line between DIY punk and American roots music. Produced by Johnny Walker (Soledad Brothers, All Seeing Eyes) and Kristo Baricevic (captain in chief at Big Muddy Records), the Hooten Hallers' latest effort showcases their evolution as musicians and songwriters.

John Randall’s demonically-tinged vocals and blues-inspired, manic guitar, and Andy Rehm's screaming falsetto vocals and steady, pounding drum beat keep the band focused on their unique blend of deep blues and country punk. Kellie Everett brings the power with the deep rumble of her baritone and bass saxophones. When The Hooten Hallers come to town, you know it’s gonna be a party!

Broken Stems
Broken Stems music is rooted heavily in early rock’n’roll, blues and soul music updated with a newer edgy vibe. The San Diego music scene has embraced their free-spirited message and hard-hitting shows with overwhelming support and Broken Stems have embraced their diverse fan-base as well. The first thing you’ll notice at Broken Stems shows in any city are local vendors and artists selling their own creations and spreading their own artistic message to add to the experience. The crowd at shows, just like the band members, tend to be younger but the music and message resonate as well with another generation, fans of Hendrix, Zeppelin and Pink Floyd find something similar in the lyrics and style of Broken Stems.

This wide range of supporters creates a unique sense of unity and togetherness at any Broken Stems show – go to a show, see an entire audience put their arms around each other and embrace in the spirit of love and you’ll understand…the fans are the difference.

Broken Stems latest full album “What Are You Connected” was released everywhere November 2016 and features the band’s first single “Hear You Calling” which landed in the top 10 of iHeart Radio’s Rising Star competition in 2016. Broken Stems have big plans for 2017 with new music and videos already finished and an expected tour in the summer.
