Featured Band of the Week: Plantation

-   October 20, 2014 1990 is making a comeback with this week’s featured band, Plantation. After a short hiatus Plantation is back with new members. But, not to worry, their high energy, heavy guitar riffs, and powerful vocals have remained untampered. Originally from Vineland, NJ, Plantation moved to Philadelphia earlier this year and recorded their very first EP, Out of the Dark, at Milkboy Studios with producer Karl Petersen. This six track compilation echoes strong influences from the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. Their bluesy southern rock sound grasps at the grunge era with a nod to bands such as Black Sabbath, Alice in Chains, and Down. Much like the aforementioned, it is apparent that Plantation pours their blood, sweat, and tears into everything they do. If you didn’t catch Plantation at this year’s First Annual Yard’s Fest, be sure to check them out at Bourbon & Branch Friday October 24th with East of the West, Solus Rex, and Pravda.   Out of the Dark is available for download at http://plantation.bandcamp.com/, and don’t forget Plantation will be in heavy rotation all this week. You can catch a track at the beginning of every Gashouse Live (weeknights 6pm ET), and if you like what you hear, show some love and use the thumbs up/down button to voice your opinion.   Fun Fact: Plantation chose their name in hope to one day own a self-sufficient farm/recording studio.

Featured Band of the Week: John & Brittany

- October 13, 2014 With a heavy heart, I announce this week’s featured band- John & Brittany.   John & Brittany’s ride was short, sweet, and no less than extraordinary. Philadelphia legend, John Faye started chatting with Brittany Rotondo through MySpace back in 2008. It was not long until John discovered Brittany’s poetry and his ability to effortlessly apply music to her words. Beginning with local open mic nights, J&B evolved into headlining their own shows at the TLA and World Café Live as well as sharing the stage with bands such as Everclear and the Gin Blossoms.   2013 was the pinnacle of John & Brittany’s music career. In addition to being named Musical Artist of the Year by the Philadelphia chapter of RAW Natural Born Artists, J&B’s video for “Paper Planes” aired on over 100 video outlets including MTV-U’s The Freshman and MTV.com. That same year John & Brittany entered ROUSH Road Racing’s Distracter Face Competition with a hilarious three part webseries (which is still available on YouTube), and headlined WMMR’s annual Mistletoe Jam.   Not more than three years ago John & Brittany released their self-titled debut EP. I am sad to say that on Friday October 17th, J&B will play their last show at Philly’s Hard Rock Café in honor of their final EP, called Stories To Be Told. Although John and Brittany’s mutual love of punk and new wave brought them together, their creative/musical friendship has ended in the sweetest way possible. I am optimistic that John and Brittany will continue to host their weekly Wednesday open mic nights at Legendary Dobbs, and I hope they will remain as volunteers for Musicians On Call (a non-profit organization that delivers live music to hospital patients).   Check out johnbrittany.com for more info, and don’t forget to tune in all this week to hear John & Brittany in heavy rotation. You can catch a track at the beginning of every Gashouse Live (weeknights 6pm ET), and if you like what you hear, show some love and use the thumbs up/down button to voice your opinion.   Fun Fact: The first time Brittany EVER picked up a guitar was in June 2009 when she got one for her birthday.
