  • Fifth Way

    'Stomping Ground'[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2012/02/Fifth-Way-Stomping-Ground-mp31.mp3]

    Fifth Way aims to instill in their listeners a life expressed through rock: the dominant form of music. With diverse backgrounds, Fifth Way is bringing their rock and roll spectacle to all the stages that can handle it. Front man Tim Gossman’s powerful vocal styling’s are accompanied by the twin guitar attack of lead players Zak Stemlaszek and cohort Adam Trahan. Mike McMann, the man in charge of the low end, hollers at your with his precision and timeliness. Chris Castro, the clock man, hits hard, hits often and maintains a tight ship.

  • Citizen Zero

    Brothers. The bond of blood is thick, and there is a palatable chemistry between brothers who make music together. This is the case with modern rock upstarts Citizen Zero -- comprised of the three uber talented Dudley Brothers - Matt, Greg and John, plus Josh Mayle on lead vocals. Citizen Zero are now touring in support of their debut self titled EP produced by Kid Rock's engineer Al Sutton.

  • Nothing for Now

    'Killers'[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2012/03/Nothing-for-Now-Killers.mp3]

    Nothing for now was formed in 2008 and was revamped in 2011. The final line up is Tommy Vallejo at vocals, Joe, Bieringer at Guitar and Vocals, CJ Orgeck at Guitar, Jay Neely at bass and Corey Newsom at drums. the name nothing for now came about when Tommy was asked what the new project was called and he responded, "Well, nothing for now but we will think of something before we play live." The name stuck. If you where to compare the group to any one we would be a mix of the Deftones, Incubus and Chevelle. all in all we think that you will agree from music to vocals we are original.

  • Westfall

    'Industrial Rodent'[audio:http://banana1015.com/files/2011/12/01-Industrial-Rodent.mp3]

    WestFall is exceptionally active in their local music scene, and are constantly striving to broaden their horizons. Since their early childhood they shared the same schools, bus routes, and the same drive for music. They were inspired by classic rock bands like Led Zeppelin and Lynyrd Skynyrd, who established the foundation for modern hard rock groups such as Godsmack and Metallica.
