Rod Hamdallah, Amazing Heeby Jeebies, The Dyes
Doors open at 7 pm.
ROD HAMDALLAH: Hailing from Atlanta, garage rocker Rod Hamdallah has been tearing up the southeast music scene since before he was old enough to have his first drink. By age 16, Rod was soaking up garage rock and Southern delta blues and mastering it technically at a relentless pace.
Subsequently influenced by early soul as well, Hamdallah took his music to yet another level; and by age 17, he was sharing the stage with influences such as blues prodigy Sean Costello, Jack White, mentor Dexter Romweber and many, many more. The elements in Rod's original musical are rooted in blues, garage and early soul. Dark storytelling and American roots music play a big part in his songwriting as well. He creates a sound that can be likened to such artists as Flat Duo Jets, Captain Beefheart and the Black Keys
Hamdallah’s debut EP is a wailing garage-rock stomper with bluesy, lo-fi vocals all throughout its five tracks. The single "Think About It" will keep your head bobbing with its dirty guitar and punk rock attitude, all while his soulful vocals thread throughout. "Carry You Home" features Colonel J.D. Wilkes, of the Legendary Shack Shakers, a band Rod has toured with worldwide. Wilkes adds both banjo and an almost dreamy, Wurlitzer piano to this bluesy western tune.
Crafting a sound from personal experience, dynamic variation and melodic vocals, Rod Hamdallah stands poised to take this show on the road … and around the world! Because, for Rod, hunger is his main hallmark. It is an undeniable quality in his soul. http://www.rodhamdallah.com/#rod
AMAZING HEEBY JEEBIES: Best described as "Dixiefried Garagabilly" drawing on various eras and genres from hillbilly, gritty blues, 60's garage punk, deep from the underworld of moody psychotic rock n roll! https://www.facebook.com/amazingheebyjeebies/
THE DYES: The Dyes are a rock'n'roll trio hailing from Chicago, IL. Often coined as Garage-a-billy, they've dipped into a phonic realm fueled by infectious '50s and '60s oldies approached with an irreverence and vigor that is anything but retro. Frontwoman Lisa Louise slings an Electromatic while crooning & growling her way through rockabilly classics and heartfelt originals. Bassist Jill E. Bean plucks a sparkle Danelectro, complementing each twang of guitar with a soulful thump and fluid sway. Driving the trio forward is drummer Charlie Crane, yielding wooden shards and channeling his inner Animal at an alarmingly reckless, sweaty pace! The Dyes make for a raw live experience that's too loud to be overlooked.
Jill & Lisa formed the group as teens and have maintained the same line-up since the addition of Charlie in 2006. With a decade of playing the rock'n'roll circuit under their belts, they have honed their sound & had the pleasure to share the stage with many roots rock luminaries. Following their DIY aesthetic of self-releases, STOMP is The Dyes' first full-length record in 6 years. STOMP best encapsulates what one might expect during a Dyes performance, featuring 14 road-tested tracks recorded in as few takes as possible, drenched in reverb, and pressed on mystery marble vinyl.
