Jackyl
Jackyl
It’s an incredible accomplishment when a rock band has been successful enough to reach the 25-year mark since the release of their first album. And this year, rowdy southern rockers Jackyl have accomplished this feat, and are celebrating with an appropriately-titled compilation, ’25,’ which drops July 28 via Mighty Loud Records.

The 18-track set (which can be preordered via the band’s official site, jackyl.com) features such Jackyl radio hits as “Down on Me,” “The Lumberjack,” “Push Comes to Shove,” and “Favorite Sin,” as well as two previously unreleased tracks - a live rendition of “Redneck Punk,” as well as a cover of Black Oak Arkansas’ “Hot and Nasty.”

“At the time we first hit the scene, we were told by quite a few interviewers and fans that we sounded like a cross between Black Oak Arkansas and AC/DC,” explains Jackyl. “While we was very familiar with AC/DC, we were not with BOA. We went back and listened, and were blown away - so much so, that we recorded a cover of one of their most kick ass tunes, ‘Hot and Nasty,’ which is now finally getting its release on this comp.”

First bursting upon the scene with their self-titled, platinum-certified debut album in 1992, Jackyl has made a name for themselves as a killer live band that delivers night after night, and has continued to offer up good old fashioned blues boogie over the years, as evidenced on such subsequent albums as 1994’s gold-certified ‘Push Comes to Shove,’ all the way to their most recent release, 2016’s ‘ROWYCO.’

“Its not about coming to see a Jackyl show, its about coming to be a part of it,” Says Jesse Dupree. “Every show becomes a family reunion.”
Robert Brown Band
Robert Brown Band
The Robert Brown Band is a 3-piece Rock band based out of Bloomington-Normal, Illinois, poised to launch a fresh, invigorated take on American Rock n' Roll. Its members are familiar with each other – bordering on brothers - having played in several projects throughout the years, and they've collectively been jamming and writing songs since 2009. Always evolving their power-trio sonic palette, their high-energy shows delivered each night are not to be missed nor forgotten. From edgy barn-burners to down-home blues ballads, The Robert Brown Band promises to bring a passionate performance of their guitar-fueled original songs from their forthcoming album, along with their take on classic hits from their mentors like Jimi Hendrix, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty, Pearl Jam, and others. Robert Brown and his band of extremely talented, seasoned musicians are currently touring Illinois and the Midwest with their unique blend of Rock n' Roll, Funky Punk, and Dirty Blues. The band released the "3 X 4" EP in July 2013, and is in the process of finishing their first full-length album - 'Love A Ghost' - to be released Summer 2014.
