BURN RIVER BURN
BURN RIVER BURN is a band of 5 driven rock musicians who combine a heavy swagger with a hint of country twang to create what has been called “southern fried Sabbath.” The band was born when John Paterson, a singer with a range and power that rivals the best in the business, joined Chuck Howell (guitar), Kevin Amann (drums), Ray Morgan (guitar), and Dan Knight (bass) to create their shared vision of low-tuned guitars, infectious hooks, driving rhythms, and intense vocals. Their sound will draw you in as one enthusiastic blogger described songs from their 10 track debut album as “solid guitar riffs gilded with beautiful keyboard melodies” and “a sweet sound that will still be able to speak to the old school headbanger in you.” Currently, the band is working on its second album and playing live in the Bay Area and beyond.

Pushing The Sun
Bringing light to your life with fire in their hands- Guitarist Billy Connally launched Pushing the Sun in 2012. After his successful instrumental album release, The Silent Canvas on Steve Vai's Digital Nations label, Connally was ready to return to his roots — a rock band with a charismatic lead vocalist. Releasing a 3 song ep and a music video for their song Tragic Love, the band has rapidly gained momentum playing a ton of gigs in Northern California including an opening slot for Rockstar Uproar when it came to the Shoreline Amphitheater. Pushing the Sun worked with producer Tim Narducci (Systematic & SpiralArms) on their upcoming full length album “House of Lights” which is scheduled to be released in January of 2014. Their music can be described as a balance of musicianship and songwriting that is constantly evolving and dynamic, while still maintaining songs rich with addictive riffs and catchy hooks. Pushing the Sun consists of Andrew Saman on Vocals, Billy Connally on Guitar, A.J. Curtis on Drums, Johaan Hill on Bass and Neil Hagge on Keys.
Approximately 50 miles north of the Golden Gate tucked away in the dimly lit confines of a former motorcycle clubhouse, you’ll find five guys creating filth, fury, and fantasy under the guise of Shotgun Harlot. Cranking out tunes that will leave you chanting choruses, humming riffs, perfecting your air guitar skills, or getting your rocks off at a live show, these guys deliver! Their sound embodies the well-crafted balance of high octane hard rock, deep-rooted appreciation for classic rock & roll, all with a southern flare. With swagger and a punk rock attitude, their sound is explosive and melodic. In the name of Rock & Roll…EVERYTHING LOUDER THAN EVERYTHING ELSE!!
