Brian Hartzog

Funk and roll!! Classic-rock influenced alternative funk rock music. Sounds like P-funk and Prince mixed with the Beatles, Bob Dylan, and Jimi Hendrix.

Chasing Edison

Funky and a bit jazzy.

Gigi Dover

Americana--adult alternative with a slight country flair. A bit Stevie Nicks. Good songwriting.


Electric jazz-funk trio features dual bassists and includes sound samples, FAQ and contact information.


Four piece radio-friendly modern rock group. Reminds me of 3 Doors Down.

Neglected Sheep

Alternative pop/rock band that makes southern, melodic music.


Alternative pop/rock band a la the Smithereens.

Semi-Pro Punkish alternative five-piece band managed by an old guitarist of mine.
