Great breakthroughs, sure, but the band – led by Steve Harris (vocals and rhythm guitar) Stacy Thornburg (lead guitar, vocals), Johnny Reed (guitar, vocals), Robb Edwards (bass) and Troy Hollinger (drums)– wanted to get back to their more raucous roots. So they hightailed it to Dallas to work with renowned Texas rock producer Alex Gerst at Empire Sound Recording Studio. Now, with deeper attitude and edge, they’re celebrating the freewheeling spirit of 76’ (their new EP) and getting everyone to “Shake It Like A Hillbilly” with their fiery, rockin’ new single and high energy video. Good mojo’s always essential when bands make a powerful sonic move, and Hillbilly Vegas got tons of it being recorded on the very recording console Bruce Springsteen used for Born In The USA at The Power Station. That’s bound to continue with the new promotional game plan for all future singles, including the second one, the crackling party anthem “High Time For A Good Time”: sharing videos via multiple platforms instead of aiming for radio airplay. Another key track on the album is “2 Gun Town,” a hard rock psycho-rockabilly tune originally written for a National Geographic TV show. “We’ve taken more control this time around as far as our sound and direction,” says Harris. “We’ve always been a rock band sort of dabbling in the country market and that’s even more evident this time around, recording with Alex, who’s worked with many major label bands in Texas. We’re grateful for the success of Ringo Manor, but it was a learning experience as was all of our time recording it in Nashville. Our fans kept telling us they loved our giant live sound and that while they liked our album we’re more exciting live. That’s the power we went for on 76’, which we named after Johnny’s 76 Gibson Firebird guitar. We loved the way Alex got those big drum sounds and the cool atmosphere he created for us to do the hard work. He was the perfect co-producer.” As live performers, Hillbilly Vegas has come a long way from that first acoustic coffeehouse gig a few years ago, around the same time a hotshot from a major Nashville label heard their first song “Wrong” on a Ft. Smith, Arkansas station and offered them a contract. Their work with Battle Saint, a national organization that raises money for the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund (benefiting vets suffering from traumatic brain injuries), led to a unique connection with popular race car driver Dennis Schoenfeld, whose company provides headers to the majority of all cars racing today, including NASCAR vehicles. Schoenfeld took a liking to Hillbilly Vegas, and the band is now sponsored by several national racing teams. Most of their live performances are festivals and events connected to the world of racing. Their logo is on two of Schoenfeld’s cars and one belonging to Jake Davis Motor Sports. “We’re all about creating fun, high energy, memorable music that gives people a good feeling,” says Harris. “I love hearing tunes on the radio that stir up feelings that take me back to special times and places – and if Hillbilly Vegas can do that for people, it’s a wonderful thing. We know we’re not doing socially groundbreaking material, but it’s real. Each song chronicles the experience and influences of the guys who wrote them.” Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/hillbilly.vegas.1 Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/hillbillyvegas iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/shake-it-like-a-hillbilly/id1068596920?i=1068597282 Song IPI# BMI# 13286236 Songwriters: Stephen Harris - BMI# 579784767 John Reed – BMI# 440314993 Richie Owens Publisher: Stephen Harris Music – BMI# 579784767 More

Chris Rowan - Swim In Your Heart (Official Music Video)

The middle brother to older brother, Peter, and younger brother, Lorin, Chris has performed as part of the Rowan Brothers, known for their vocal harmony blend, for the last four decades. Originally from Wayland, a town 20 minutes outside of Boston, Chris came to Marin with his brother, Lorin, and their music producer, David Grisman. It turned out to be a smart move as he was signed by Clive Davis to CBS Records in 1971, and then by David Geffen to Geffen’s new Asylum label in 1974. Part of Chris’ musical adventure with his brothers on Asylum Records was seeing his song, “If I Only Could” hit the top 100 singles chart coming in at 54 with a bullet. Chris' latest CD, "Swim In Your Heart", is a musical journey from his childhood to his lifelong pursuit of expressing himself through words and music.

Tommy Steele Band - Rockin' Both Sides (Official Music Video)

TOMMY STEELE BAND ''SOUNDS LIKE A DOUBLE SHOT OF SOUTHERN BOURBON WITH A DASH OF DETROIT... TOMMY STEELE BAND ''SOUNDS LIKE A DOUBLE SHOT OF SOUTHERN BOURBON WITH A DASH OF DETROIT GRIT.'' http://www.tommysteeleband.com - With a distinctive and immediately identifiable sound, Tommy Steele Band is a blend of influences that brings together the edgy musicianship and rocked-out passion of early Allman Brothers Band and Lynyrd Skynyrd, with the raw, sparse, lyrical sense of Springsteen. Active in several bands before starting his own in 2006, Steele was used to playing more than his share of shows a year. The 2009 release of his first Nashville produced CD, THE LONG HAUL, brought him national recognition with three hit singles: positive “Watching Love Grow”, the rock guitar-edged, mid-tempo “Forever 17” and the passionate top ten Inspirational crossover Hit ballad, “What Kind of Man Would I Be.” The releases generated multiple radio tours, On-air Television appearances all over the country and produced national and international written features including Country Weekly, Music Row and Magazine of Country Music. Tommy’s 2012 Music Row top 40 Hit single perfectly reflected the complicated dichotomy of his music. Produced by Nashville’s respected veteran singer songwriter Dave Gibson. “My Side of the Street” put Steele’s emotive voice front and center on this story of a love destined to live only in dreams. The story line with Tommy’s unique style brought a new interpretation of cultural and social divides to the song. The video was added to many television networks across the country. In 2013 The Ultimate party song “We Ain’t Drunk” Video was released, picked up by many networks and was a hit to more than 50 Million over air and cable TV subscribers and is still in rotation as a mainstay on many networks today. The Michigan native opened for Big & Rich at his hometown Pontiac Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan and performed at 3 CMA Music Festival’s in Nashville. He’s toured the country and shared stages with megastars Leann Rimes, Gretchen Wilson, Little Big town, Big & Rich, Blackberry smoke, Dwight Yoakam, and more, he’s also entertained at venues ranging from intimate nightclubs to large festivals. Tommy carries with him life lessons learned in his youth, and they give instant credence to his down-home manner and strong work ethic. With family roots in Detroit’s auto factories and Georgia’s clay soils, “blue collar” and “country strong” are descriptive terms for this entertainer. “Family is everything to me, and fatherhood? Well, that’s the reward! I am humbled to create music with a vision but life experiences and my family are my inspirations.” Website: www.tommysteeleband.com Facebook: www.facebook.com/tommysteeleband Twitter: www.twitter.com/tommysteeleband iTunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/artist/tommy-steele-band/id537696132 Label: Triple Creek Records, Inc.
