Stop That Noise New York City's Alternative Rock "Power Duo".
Representing an evolution of historic rock rhythm sections, this hard-driving duo has severed the vestigial fingers of a guitarist to create a sound completely new, yet accessible and universal.
The Jongleurs The Jongleurs have evolved into
a group with a truly original sound.
Although called everything from experimental
jazz to anarchy rockers, their avant-jazz / funk / pop / bluegrass / classical
/ rock / rhumba / bebop / blues / gospel / reggae / ska / New Orleans /punk
stylings have enlightened the masses with their unique instrumentation
and constant gigging.
Richard Ace and Sons of AceThis is a family of reggae musicians with roots to the golden years of Bob Marley, but with a decidedly modern edge.
Material ranges from dancehall to reggae to
country to hip hop. Richard Ace's voice is somewhere between Ray Charles and Rod Stewart, which is counterpoint to Shabba style rap by son Craig. All of this is boosted
by a slamming rhythm section and interesting arrangements with the right
touch of jammin.
Carl Gardner and the Coasters
The Coasters, led by Carl Gardner, a member of the Rock n' Roll hall
of fame, were the 1950s' (and early rock's) dominant novelty/comic R&B
ensemble, benefitting from lyrical wit and inspired production.
Coasters were a skilled vocal unit whose talents were utilized on slice-of-life
narratives, prophetic youth manifestos, and even an occasional teen anthem.
