By combining the best live performance and studio album sound, Ten Years Gone gives music fans the ultimate tribute show to one of the greatest rock bands there ever was. Faithful recreations of equipment, style, and sound brings fans back to when the Hammer of the Gods was held by Led Zeppelin. Ten Years Gone is lead by John McGah and his soaring vocals. He delivers Robert Plant’s iconic style and vintage high notes to a degree not many singers can reach. His high energy front-man prowess brings audiences to their feet at every show. Cody Sickler’s astute knowledge of Zeppelin’s musical catalog and Jimmy Page’s lead-guitar style brings Ten Years Gone to a new height of authenticity. His use of Jimmy Page’s famous Les Paul guitars brings all of the classic tones to the stage. Bret Perrin on electric and acoustic rhythm guitars rounds out the wall of sound that can be heard on Zeppelin’s studio recordings. Bret’s guitar element and backing vocals enriches the sound audience members hear at shows. Rhythmically holding the sound together is J. Simms on bass, who functions as the pulse of Ten Years Gone. J. is dedicated to the pursuit of emulating John Paul Jones’ legendary bass lines and musical sensibilities. Multi-instrumentalist Bill Galey’s orchestral touch on the keyboards and acoustic guitars is paramount in the recreation of Led Zeppelin’s music. He leads the band through epic show stoppers such as “Kashmir” and the beautiful “Rain Song.” On drums, Joe Lederman has mastered John Bonham’s thunderous style. As a lifelong fan of Bonzo’s, Joe has meticulously studied Zeppelin’s bombastic percussive side since he was a young boy; and he takes special pride in performing an authentically-inspired “Moby Dick” drum solo. The band reproduces all of the hits, deep cuts, and folk and blues inspired songs in a way that captures all of the light and shade aesthetics, which Jimmy Page touts as one of the key aspects in Led Zeppelin’s music. Ten Years Gone’s incredible sonic and visual presence has developed on Colorado’s theater and festival stages. “Led Zeppelin tribute bands are not uncommon, but Ten Years Gone is one of the really special ones. The lights, the musical quality, the energy, and the look; the band’s live performances do not disappoint.” — Denver Westword About the Charity: Punk Rock Saves Lives is a catalyst at events for the Punk Rock Community to start focusing on Health Concerns, Equal Rights, Human Rights, and more. One of the keystones of the music community, especially Punk rock, is the ethos of taking care of one another. By championing this ethos through various campaigns such as Marrow Donor Registration, mental health resources and Harm Reduction supplies , we can elevate messages of hope, activism, and change to effect positive change and drive awareness.

Bio For Chi-King
I am a figure of significance in this field. The opportunities bestowed upon me by divine providence within this industry are extraordinary. At the tender age of 13, fleeing from an abusive guardian, I found myself navigating the streets. Remarkably, within five days, I was entrenched in the world of Disco, alongside the City Boys, Full Impact DJs, and Heavy Sound Productions. These individuals, integral to the flourishing hip-hop scene in Central Florida, were my early mentors during my time as DJ Puerto Rico. My days were consumed amidst the DJ crates and dance floors of various clubs, dedicating my life to music, tirelessly striving for that breakthrough. Fast forward 25 years, and the catalogue of accomplishments speaks volumes. I’ve had the privilege to open for the now globally acclaimed DJs Nasty and Prostyle. Additionally, I became a part of The Max-a-Million All Stars, collaborating with luminaries such as Sunny Chulo, Johnny Bravo, Southstar, D’ville, and Chi CHI YeYo at the time. Our reign over Orlando, Florida was unparalleled, a saga that will soon be immortalized in an upcoming documentary. Collaborations with the esteemed WARHEADS further cemented my journey. Subsequently, I’ve shared stages with a myriad of artists, ranging from Mobb Deep to Ludacris, Fat Joe to Lil Wayne, and a multitude of others. The list continues, as I’ve performed alongside these icons, etching unforgettable moments into my journey. Continuing on my odyssey, fate intertwined with 12 O’clock, the younger sibling of the legendary Old Dirty Bastard and Prodigal Sunn, during their Florida project, “2 on The Road.” This connection led to an honorary membership with the Brooklyn ZU and Suns of Man. My presence on the Brooklyn ZU album, “The Return Of The Prodigal Sun,” specifically on “My Life (CHAMBER #9 Verse 32),” was a defining moment. Under the guidance of Prodigal, the spectrum of experiences expanded, from touring with Wu-Tang Clan to engaging in cerebral battles with luminaries such as Canibus, GZA, and Killa Priest. The journey didn’t halt there. I found myself appearing in the DGK movie opposite Beanie Sigal, courtesy of the support and belief from the legendary Steven Cales and Stevie Williams, individuals who champion the underdog, much like myself. Learning the ropes in this industry is no facile feat; it’s a continuous learning curve fraught with risks that could potentially imperil one’s life or career. Yet, learning from these luminaries has instilled in me a profound understanding of what it takes to command a stage. I approach my live shows with utmost seriousness, infusing captivating energy within those fleeting moments to enthrall audiences. Performing alongside Wu-Tang Clan members or owning the stage during solo trips—these experiences are invaluable and indescribable. A sojourn in Hollywood led me to feature in movies currently streaming on Prime and Tubi, including “Stay Off The App” with Richard Greico and “Hub City” with the presence of the revered Nipsey Hussle, moments that brought immense satisfaction. Presently, my musical endeavors are showcased on various streaming platforms under the moniker Chi King. Born in Brooklyn, raised amidst the trials of street life, I embody the essence of HIP HOP—a culture that continues to thrive and resonate within me. My recent focus includes releasing timeless tracks, and my engagement with NEW VIBE Televsion—dedicated to movies, videos, music, and podcasts—is a testament to my commitment to the craft. I am not a mere tale of hardship; I am the embodiment of resilience, having weathered abandonment, poverty, and abuse. My narrative is not one of despair; it’s a melody sung with perseverance. This is not your run-of-the-mill Electronic Press Kit (EPK). I am an artist far from conventional—a luminary in my own right. In the realm where Hip signifies knowledge and Hop propels movements, I proudly declare myself the CHI King. Peace and Light,
Chi King
Bio: DJ Black Cat

BIO: The B Sides is a three-piece, Denver-based band focusing on Alternative music of the ‘90s. They have built a reputation for playing the less-performed songs from the popular bands of that era (Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, etc.). Fielding requests from the audience has become a staple of a B Sides performance. If unable to fulfill a request, the band will learn it for the next performance at that venue. The B sides have garnered fans of all ages by also occasionally incorporating songs from the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘00s, (AC/DC, Peter Gabriel, Elvis Costello, Maroon 5, etc). Priding themselves on audience connection, professionalism, and musicianship, The B Sides is a must see act.

The March Divide

The March Divide

Saturday Jun 01, 2024 7:00pm

RSVP ON FACEBOOK

More Info

For over ten years The March Divide has been cultivating an acoustic-based sound wrought with reflective lyricism, observational cynicism, and heart-on-the-sleeve honesty. Sweeping up new fans across The United States with countless live sets every year, full of originals & fun covers, Jared Putnam’s vision for his indie-pop rock lingers on all those who hear it. From the initial release Music For Film in 2013 there has been a steady, unyielding growth to The March Divide that refuses to become complacent. This is apparent to anyone who spends time through Billions (2014), Anticipation Pops (2018), and Cinq (2021), most recent full length Lost Causes (2022), & countless singles. Existing somewhere in the smoldering ashes of classic Spoon and Jawbreaker, Lost Causes is the intentionally 90s indie rock sixth album from The March Divide. Teaming up with producer Mike Major (At the Drive-In, Sparta, Coheed and Cambria), the band blends nostalgia with power pop choruses, sizable hooks, and a hefty dose of clever lyrical choice in ten new songs. Throughout the course of his carrier, Putnam has garnered rave reviews from his live shows, rivaling the praise of his records, playing to new and existing fans across the country. With a seemingly unrelenting tour schedule, Putnam has crafted “completely clever” (Performer) songs “all about lyrics and melodies” (Babysue) that are “impressively hooky” (American Songwriter), filled with “bittersweet beauty” (Impose), and “catchy hooks” (Innocent Words) “There’s something wonderfully Fountains Of Wayne about it” (MAGNET) and the fans agree. Hearing The March Divide on record is one thing, but experiencing his solo acoustic live sets, including his fluid mix of originals and catchy covers, is a whole other experience to the Texas-based musician 'Lost Causes,' the critically acclaimed sixth full length album, by The March Divide, is out now on Slow Start Records.

ATCQ Bio:
Queens, New York natives Q-Tip , Phife Dawg , and Ali Shaheed Muhammad of Brooklyn, formed A Tribe Called Quest in 1985. The group is one of hip-hop’s most legendary, beloved and revered groups of all time. Easily recognized for their unique approach to rap music by employing jazz infused soundscapes to Afro centric rhymes, ATCQ was largely responsible for the popularity of a new genre that dominated the East Coast sound of the early 1990s. Sonically, ATCQ was a decisive and welcomed tangent of jazz, bass-heavy rhythmic vibes and eclectic sampling when compared to the mundane recycling of soul loops, breaks and vocals of their contemporaries. Lyrically, emcees Q-Tip and Phife Dawg addressed social issues relevant to young blacks such as use of the n word and its relevance, date rape and other interpersonal relationships, industry politics and consumerism with infectious energy and fun and having a good time while still promoting positivity. ATCQ composed a number of successful singles and albums with their creative approach to rap music. In 1990, the group released Peoples Instinctive Travels and the Paths of Rhythm. Their sophomore effort, The Low End Theory, considered one of the greatest albums in hip-hop history that would solidify them as legends. In recent years, the anticipation for another ATCQ album has been building. The Abstract Poetic, Five Foot Assasin, and Mr. Muhammad have yet to grace the studio for another record, but have hit the road again. Today, the power of their music is still evident in their dynamic stage shows and in the reception of their adoring fans.

Eli Lev originals and cover set at The Monkey Barrel. Rising singer-songwriter and global citizen Eli Lev is making the world a smaller place, one song at a time. Eli pens lyrics and melodies for everyday enlightenment—songs that resonate because they’re heartfelt, earthy, and offer the wisdom he’s gained through lifelong travel and self-discovery. Prior to becoming a full time musician, the Silver Spring, MD native spent three years as an 8th grade English teacher on the Navajo Nation in Northern Arizona. The indigenous traditions he learned during this time are the inspiration for his Four Directions project. Just as each cardinal direction holds unique characteristics in the Navajo tradition, so do each of the albums in Eli’s ‘Four Directions Project.’ Together, the series imaginatively and intrepidly connects spheres and generations within a body of work that is irresistibly uplifting, emotionally resonant, and down-to-earth authentic.
