Dr. MadVibe & The Missin' Links
-from Los Angeles, CA
-Angelo Moore (vocals, saxophone) is also known as Dr. Madd Vibe, but he is perhaps more recognized as the frontman for Fishbone, the wildly energetic party train of '70s funk and ska revivalists. Moore formed Fishbone in 1979 with Chris Dowd (trombone, keyboards), Walter Kibby (trumpet, horn, vocals), Kendall Jones (guitar), John Norwood Fisher (bass), and Philip "Fish" Fisher (drums). In 1985, Fishbone released a self-titled EP on Columbia Records. The track "Party at Ground Zero" became a cult hit on alternative and college radio stations in the U.S., while "Modern Industry," a bizarre melange of robotic voices and chanted call letters, ignited request lines in the Philippines. However, Fishbone's stylistic deviations -- the band could effortlessly veer from funk to hard rock -- confused more listeners than it attracted. In the late '80s and '90s, Fishbone witnessed the acts they influenced -- groups such as Living Colour, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and No Doubt -- achieving the commercial success that eluded them. In 1995, Moore started to write and perform poetry under the nom de guerre Dr. Madd Vibe. As Dr. Madd Vibe, Moore finished an album, a book, and a video collectively named The Missing Link Presents...Dr. Madd Vibe's Comprehensive Linkology.

-Hailing from the crossroads of the Southwest and the heart of New Mexico, Eric McFadden has crafted a rare and enticing brand of high desert blues and gritty, flamenco-infused rock that leaves listeners spellbound. McFadden’s sound has not only charmed audiences all over the world, countless musicians have been taken by his inimitable playing and musicianship, with McFadden receiving invitations to tour with the likes of funk legend George Clinton, The Animals’ Eric Burdon, and New Orleans sweethearts Anders Osborne and Tab Benoit. Right from the moment Joe Strummer spotted him in San Francisco, nicknamed him ‘Lightning,’ and gave him a gig opening for Strummer & The Mescaleros, Eric McFadden has claimed his place amongst the greats.
Drawing from his multifarious musical experiences and influences, Eric McFadden has developed his own unique and meaningful voice as a songwriter and 2021 will be hearing much more of that voice. Honing in on a sound that’s a rousing mix of Jack White, Django Reinhardt, and Jimi Hendrix, we can expect to witness McFadden as we never have before - as a wild talent harnessing his power, as a man settling into his skin. This is the year for Eric McFadden and every music lover should be watching out and taking notes.
“…McFadden is a six-string virtuoso. His command of so many genres- is accentuated with meticulously crafted songs. There’s the poppy twist on traditional psychedelia. Poetic yet sinisterly distorted punk. Rowdy rockabilly. Dark, foreboding grunge. His melodies hinge on seriously catchy choruses that resonate thanks to a crunchy baritone reminiscent of Tom Waits or the late Mark Sandman of Morphine…” - The Denver Post

"Far more than an extraordinary guitarist, Eric McFadden is, to put it bluntly, an experience...For those who have been to their fair share of musical events and want something both original and high caliber, McFadden is your guy. No two shows are alike—an awesome performance for those who respect dynamic originality." Music Connection 2019
"Pain By Numbers represents an artist exposing his own vulnerability with unmatched expression, style, delivery, and above all, originality.
While delivering the goods with the same energy as the Clash and the Ramones, Eric McFadden’s Blues seeks its own musical footprint on Pain By Numbers". IndiePulse 2019

-Dizzy Twin explores a netherworld of weird, witchy vibes. To date, they’ve put out two albums: Kaleidoscope (2016) and Empire (2018), the latter of which was mastered at Abbey Road Studios. Musically beautiful and lyrically powerful, Dizzy Twin is in a genre all it’s own- an adventurous and dynamic feminist statement reaching into both the future and the past.
Dizzy Twin began in SF as a super-secret studio project created by UK transplant Paul Simmans and co-founder of San Francisco’s feminist punk icons Frightwig, Mia d’Bruzzi. It is now a full-blown live act featuring Roger Rocha (4 Non Blondes, The Goldenhearts) on guitar, Tim Perdue (Velvetta, Enrique) on bass, and Michael Tornatore on drums, along with Paul on piano and guitar and Mia on vocals.
“Gorgeous tracks!”- Unwoman (Erica Mulkey)
