Always challenging their collective internal status quo with fresh ideas and new perspectives, Sons of Pitches bring their own brand of improvisation to the stage for a thrilling live event.  Their instrumental country jazz originals, and unique arrangements of standards affectionately called “Cowboy Jazz,” provide a musical landscape for staking their claim and pushing on to new frontiers. They swing, they rip, they dip, they dive, they fly…they melt hearts & faces.

It was backstage after New Year’s Eve 2015 performances at the legendary Birchmere Music Hall in Alexandria, VA when (The Hello Strangers) band-mates, guitarist/songwriter Spencer Pheil and bassist Tommy Hoy, met Dave Hadley, pedal steel extraordinaire.  That night, with a mutual yearning for a musical milieu where the sky was the limit and the emphasis was improvisation, the idea took shape to make a bold statement musically.  Drummer Jim Aguzzi, who had performed in many ensembles with Pheil & Hoy, was the last piece of the puzzle, bringing a wealth of musical taste, chops, and clever puns.

Sons of Pitches hail from the Mason Dixon line on the Pennsylvania/Maryland border where Pheil owns a recording studio.  The band is slated to release its first self-titled album in November 2016.  Collectively, Sons of Pitches has thousands of shows under its belt.  Although still in its nascent stages, the band has already received high praise for its live shows, varied set lists, and inspiring musicianship.  Their goal is to create music for ordinary folks.  Their brand of improvisation is meant to be visceral and tactile: music for the people. Sons of Pitches will be touring and recording extensively in 2017 and look forward to continuing their quest to unearth new musical ideas.

The legendary Son House (1902-1988) was known to say “Blues is a feelin’”. Eli Cook’s music expresses that same raw honesty in a unique blend of contemporary and old-school styles, creating an original sound at the fore-front of modern Blues and Rock.

 

Eli took up the guitar as a teenager in the Blue Ridge foothills of Virginia. Following the tradition of the great blues men, he performed in churches and late-night gospel revivals with only his acoustic and deep baritone voice, while playing every hole-in-the-wall bar that could handle his electric power trio.  Blending the influences of John Lee Hooker, Muddy Waters, Fred MacDowell, Bukka White and Lightning Hopkins with the likes of Clutch, Soundgarden, C.O.C, and Rage against the Machine, he forged a fresh sound, alive with the southern blues tradition.

 

Eli recorded and released his first two albums between 2004 and 2007:  the all-acoustic, original-roots album “Miss Blues’ Child” on the Sledgehammer Blues label, and a heavy blues-rock release  “ElectricHolyFireWater”.   During this time he was invited to open for B.B. King on King's east coast tour.  Since then, Eli has shared the stage with Johnny Winter, Robert Cray, Parliament-Funkadellic, Gary Clark JR, Roomful of Blues and many others. In 2008,  Eli released his third self-produced album, “Static in the Blood", a modern R&B/Rock crossover project featuring ornate experimental studio production.  The follow up album, “Ace Jack & King", a return to roots-blues and heavy guitars, received critical acclaim. The All Music Guide proclaimed that Eli could be “the best blues singer of his generation.”

 

In 2013, Eli signed with LA-based label Cleopatra Records to begin work on his 5th studio album, featuring guest appearances by rock legend Leslie West of Mountain, Artimus Pyle (Lynyrd Skynyrd)  Reese Wynans of Double Trouble, Vinny Appici (Black Sabbath, Ronnie James Dio) and Tinsley Ellis. The album was released in Spring 2014.

One of the tracks on the album, Basslove, features dueling solos between Nick and special guest John Ferrara of Consider the Source – LMD was able to preview the track, and the amount of bass facemeltage is mind-boggling.

Aztec Sun:
Since it’s inception in late 2012, Washington DC-based band AZTEC SUN has hypnotized the ears and feet of the District’s live music aficionados. No matter the scale of the venue, this ensemble maintains an upbeat and retro groove steeped in 70's Funk and Soul, Jazz, Afro-funk and Motown-era pop. Their infectious songwriting and energetic live performances have yielded rewards for the group - such as being named Best Local Original Band by the Washington City Paper and sharing the stage with international and national touring acts such as two-time Grammy Award winning keyboardist Shaun Martin (from Snarky Puppy), Burning Spear, The Suffers, Pimps of Joytime, Naughty Professor, Alanna Royale, and Major and the Monbacks. 

AZTEC SUN marked the end of a fantastic 2016 year with the release of their debut studio EP, Set You Free. The self-produced and live-tracked project is both a preview of a full-length album planned for 2018 and an example of the band’s incessant desire to challenge its own rhythmic and melodic versatility. With an EP under their belt, an ever-growing fan base and a passion for spreading feel-good music, AZTEC SUN will seek new audiences to entertain and opportunities to push their brand of “Funk with Soul” in the new year.
