-from Portland, OR

-Over the five year history of The Builders and the Butchers – from their beginnings playing on rainy Portland, OR, streets for random passersby, to the early unplugged Mississippi Pizza and Valentines’ shows, to the last three years of endless touring – the band has lived and died for its connection with the audience. Whether playing bar gigs for 50 people or opening arena shows for 3000, the band strives to connect with the audience, and for the audience to connect with one another, every time they take the stage. It’s that beyond anything else that keeps the Builders going. he Builders and the Butchers have toured with Heartless Bastards, Portugal. The Man, Amanda Palmer, Brand New, and Murder By Death, to name a few.-

Ike Fonseca
Ike Fonseca
-from Portland, OR

-Born and raised in Portland, Oregon, Ike Fonseca has been engulfed in the Pacific Northwest music scene for almost 2 decades. Being a singer songwriter brought up on many different genres and influences, he has been able to create a sound for himself that appeals to a wide variety of fans. With his own brand of americana mixed with folk and rock Ike has been described as “good time'n whiskey drinking music for all ages".
In Febuary of 2016 Fonseca released his debut album titled Letters Home on No Pants Records. He will headed out of a full US tour summer tour in 2016 to support this release.
In addition to his solo acoustic music, he also currently plays bass in established Portland rock bands Burn the Stage and The Disliked. Fonseca has also found a way to make a positive difference in his own community through his music and his ties to the local music industry. He founded a music based charity called “Rock for a Reason PDX" in 2000. This charity puts on events that directly helps people and businesses in Portland.
No stranger to stage, Fonseca is a full time working musician who is constantly evolving his sound. He has been blessed with the opportunity to share the stage with greats in his genre, such as Chuck Regan, Johnny Two Bags (Social Distortion), Joey Briggs and Sundowner.
Ike Fonseca is a hard working musician who is dedicated to bringing his sound to the masses. With an upcoming album, a multiple state tour booked and two more in the works, it's safe to say that there's no slowing down in sight.

Sore Thumb
from Bay Area, CA
-Tireless comparisons never quite cut it when describing a band to friends. However, the only comparison that really applies to Sore thumb is: Sore Thumb sounds nothing like the band Creed. Which in and of itself doesn’t make them a guaranteed good time but is a good place to start. Consider if the reverse were true.

After years of compiling sappy diary entries, and being “persuaded” by music from the best decade ever (The 90s), Sore Thumb has crafted a set of music requires the listener to explore their innermost embarrassing moments. It’s a musical experience that isn’t afraid of self-effacement, nor of divulging the secret desires and fears of its creators. Vivid eidetic past moments are portrayed in the most excruciating detail, set to music that ranges from soft acoustic singer-songwriter, to mild Indi-rock. So come on down and hang out with Sore Thumb, reminisce with them about the days gone by.
