THE BLASTERS
THE BLASTERS
Formed 1979 in Downey, CA, United States.

Phil Alvin (vocals, harmonica, guitar), John Bazz (bass), Bill Bateman (drums, 1979-93, 2008-present), Dave Alvin (guitar, 1979-86), Lee Allen (saxophone, 1981-94), Gene Taylor (keyboards, 1981-85), Steve Berlin (saxophone, 1981-84), Michael Mann [aka Hollywood Fats] (guitar, 1986), Billy Zoom (guitar, 1986), Greg "Smokey" Hormel (guitar, 1987-93), James Intveld (guitar, 1993-95), Dave Carroll (drums, 1993-94), Jerry Angel (drums, 1996-2008), Keith Wyatt (guitar, 1996-present).

The Blasters' self-described "American Music" was a blend of blues music, rockabilly, early rock and roll, punk rock, mountain music, and rhythm and blues. They still have a devoted fan base and have received largely positive critical reviews, but have earned only limited mainstream success. Critic Mark Deming wrote of them, "the Blasters displayed a wide-ranging musical diversity [and] were a supremely tight and tasteful band with enough fire, smarts, and passion for two or three groups."

The Blasters exemplify the best traditions of American Music, performing with passion and honesty that for over three decades has won the hearts and souls of fans worldwide. Composed of founding members vocalist-guitarist Phil Alvin, drummer Bill Bateman and bassist John Bazz with Keith Wyatt on guitar, they carry on a hard-won legacy as one of the most recognizable and credible bands in American Music. Their influences range from the likes of George Jones and Carl Perkins to Ike Turner, Howlin’ Wolf, James Brown and Big Joe Turner, all blending into a sound that ignores the lines between Rock & Roll, Country, Blues and Rockabilly. "Fun On Saturday Night" (Rip Cat Records) is the Blasters' sixth and latest studio album, featuring twelve tracks that extend the band’s legacy of classic recordings. Fronted by Phil Alvin's powerful vocals, the band follows through with spontaneity, power and grit that make their live performances into experiences not to be missed.

About
Wayne has a genuine affinity for stomping rockabilly, Western swing, blues, and old-timey country.

Biography
Wayne has been called "The King of Juke Joint swing," a "Roots Renaissance Man," a "Country Singer's Country Singer" and "Hank Williams meets Gershwin." But the phrase most frequently echoed throughout his career is "Wayne Hancock is the real deal." Joe Ely said it, Hank Williams III said it, Bobby Koefer from the Texas Playboys said it, as have countless music fans and writers when referring to Hancock's authentic and original blend of honky tonk, western swing, blues and big band that he calls "juke joint swing!"

Authenticity and sincerity have been the cornerstones of Hancock's writing and music since the start of his career. His refusal to compromise his vision and sell out his music has earned him a fiercely loyal underground following.

Hancock's vision, as he puts it, is "to bring people together and make them feel good about music. It's a spiritual thing and without spirituality, you've got nothin'. There ain't much on the radio that strikes me as being original or from the heart, most of it's from the pocketbook and it shows."

Wayne is proud of his rural roots and culture and has thoroughly absorbed the spirit of country music's forefathers such as Ernest Tubb, Hank Williams and Jimmie Rodgers. Never a mere imitator, the cutting-edge style that emerges is every bit his own. He breathes youth and driving energy into traditional country forms and adds a dash of big band horns, boogie woogie piano, scorching rockabilly beats, heavenly Hawaiian steel licks and some wigged-out hillbilly jazz guitar.

Biography
The LA Weekly calls Clownvis Presley “Better than the real Elvis”. A bold statement indeed, but when it comes to quick wit, incredibly catchy songs, and genuine showmanship, its safe to say Clownvis has earned the title “The King of Clowns”. From the sideshow at Coney Island to the hottest comedy events in Los Angeles and everything in between, Clownvis is consistently brining his unique blend of comedy, song, and magic to stages across America.

Thanks to a controversial appearance on NBC’s America’s Got Talent, Clownvis is now familiar to millions of people around the planet. His outrageous audition is a must see (check Youtube). Following this break through Clownvis has become a huge sensation, releasing viral music videos and appearing on Comedy Central, The Tom Green Show, Playboy Radio, Sirius XM, and on comedy bills with legends such as Tim Heidecker, Sarah Silverman, Margaret Cho, Drew Carry, David Spade, Bob Odenkirk, and many more.
