Biography

Zander Schloss is a trailblazing artist and musicians musician. In the thirty five year span of his professional career he has worked as a songwriter, multi instrumentalist, bandleader and touring sideman with Joe Strummer, The Circle Jerks, Weirdos, Thelonious Monster, Low & Sweet Orchestra and Sean & Zander to name a few. His contributions as a music industry insider can be seen in documentaries and read about in the front and back pages of rock biographies. Zander has also composed music for many critically acclaimed films such as Walker and Sid & Nancy, and is a recognizable character actor in the cult classics Repo Man and Straight To Hell. His creative choices are interesting and eclectic, having spanned many genres, but with one common denominator. Integrity.

Never has Zander’s reverence for music been more apparent than in his current solo work. With all of his experience, wisdom and technical prowess, Schloss has crafted songs with the restraint, skill and attention to detail of a master carpenter. His 12 string guitar is finger picked with the muscularity of a Delta Bluesman shipwrecked in the Scottish Highlands. Schloss’s command of the Greek Bouzouki is as exotic as it is mythical. On his long awaited solo debut album, ,“Song About Songs”, He sings with the husky vulnerability of a weary crusader who has lived the hero’s journey, survived and come home with great stories to tell--and we believe him.
THE RAGLANDERS
THE RAGLANDERS
.. The Raglanders are a 5-piece group from Green Bay, WI who blur the lines between Rock and Country with a uniquely Midwestern take. They draw on traditional influences like Gram Parsons, Bob Dylan, Tom Petty, and The Band along with newer voices such as Ryan Adams and Jason Isbell.
The band is currently writing and recording material for a follow up to their 2016 EP release “Pembine”, which they recorded in an isolated cabin deep in the woods of northern Wisconsin near the small town of Pembine. The new material demonstrates a growth in songwriting and musicianship, while sticking to the traditional roots that have been the band’s trademark from the beginning.
Since the release of “Pembine” founding members Troy Heinz (rhythm guitar, vocals), John Steuck (lead guitar, vocals) and Andy Cismoski (bass, vocals) have added violinist Molly Robinson and drummer Bill Schulz and in the process have taken the group’s musicianship to new heights. The band’s sound is clearly based first and foremost in the classic storytelling tradition, but the dual soloing violin and lead guitar can elevate improvisational passages to exciting new levels at any given moment.
The Raglanders have been steadily building a fan base, appearing at festivals around Wisconsin including the Steel Bridge Song Fest, Electric City Experience, and Moondance Festival and have shared the stage with national acts like Confederate Railroad and Jarrod Niemann.
In a profile feature, Green Bay Press Gazette writer Kendra Meinert said, “Green Bay alt-country band The Raglanders are making the kind of throwback country they hope appeals to anyone who can appreciate a well-done Johnny Cash or Merle Haggard cover as well as followers of modern-day caretakers of the genre like Jason Isbell and Sturgill Simpson.”
CHRISTOPHER GOLD and the NEW OLD THINGS
Biography
Christopher Gold was born in Owensboro, Kentucky. The son of a bluegrass musician, he didn’t have to go far to find a passion and available instruction on the mandolin, banjo, and guitar. It wasn’t long before he started writing his own songs and playing them in public. He now splits his time between the folk and bluegrass from his childhood and the punk music from his adolescence, playing and releasing albums under his own name, fronting a blues-punk band called The Dirty Rotten So & So’s, and occasionally being fortunate enough to join in on other peoples songs, including The Wandering Sons, S.S. Web, RedHawks, Holly & Plastic and just about anybody else who asks. He also curates the annual “Dirty Rotten Toy Drive”, a live music event in Appleton that collects money and Christmas gifts for abused children.
