Call Me James
Brendon Reese (Lead guitar/Lead vocals)
Josh Lara (Bass Guitar, Vocals)
Chris Ramirez (Drums)
-from Visalia, CA

-Call Me James is an Alternative-Indie Rock trio that originates from Visalia, California. The band's sound is spawned from multiple influences like the Beatles, Fleetwood Mac, and modern alternative rock artists such as City and Colour and Young the Giant.

Brendon Reese (Lead Vocals/Lead guitar) started out as a solo artist while being referred to by this moniker. It was not until January 2016 that Reese brought on a band to help breathe some more life into the music. Chris Ramirez (drums) and Josh Lara (Bass Guitar, Vocals) are now primary members in the band, and are included in all performances and recordings.

Call Me James has appeared alongside artists such as Rebelution, T-Pain, and Dr. Dog. Being based in California has allowed them to play in cities from Los Angeles to Stockton.

Violet Island
Adrian S.-Vocals/Guitar
F. Ramirez-Drums
-from Hayward, CA

-On February 4th 2017 three guys from the East Bay started a band, they put their collective heads together in order to come up with a name that would inspire a generation, instead they came up with Violet Island. These days Violet Island has four members, Adrian (Vocals/Guitar), Newman (Bass), Felipe (Drums), and Lizzie (Everything Else). With the help of their trusty pet Jelly Fish they are setting out to follow the footsteps of the bands that inspired them.

Faux Canada
Melinda Wegent (Crashfaster)
David Lean (My First Earthquake)
Alejandro Soini (Sir Salvatore)
Kevin Hobson (John Craigie)
-from San Francisco, CA

-Bonjour! Faux Canada is an SF indie-pop-rock foursome from members of My First Earthquake, Sir Salvatore and Crashfaster. Heavily inspired by the early 2000’s Secretly Canadian lineup of indie rockers, their influences also include elements of 90’s shoegaze, grunge, and electro-lounge, all wrapped up in an energetic pop sheen. The result is a delicious blend of old and new, like an AMC Gremlin with a hover conversion.

Faux Canada has shared the stage with such acts as: Connan Mockasin, Imperial Teen, Happy Fangs, & Lemolo
