Bantam Foxes
Bantam Foxes
Rock and Roll from New Orleans LA

While everyone else is concerned with making music everyone likes—the “bangers” or the 32-writing credit pop tunes—twins Collin and Sam McCabe simply make the rock and roll they want to hear. Growing up, the boys were always fascinated with music and harnessed that intrigue into something constructive. After trying out countless projects apart, they came to the ultimate decision to stick together and have been writing at a near constant rate ever since. Originally from St. Louis, now based in New Orleans, Collin and Sam craft swift, sweeping and at times, haunting rock songs that just *click*.
The Dozens
The Dozens
Rock, Soul, Blues from Alabama

The Dozens were formed in 2011 by the husband and wife team of Steven and Shelley Butler with the desire to play music with soul and feeling that's not typically found anymore. Shelley was born with deep musical roots, in her youth her family traveled Alabama churches as a Gospel group. But, she's as likely to channel Prince or Wilco's Jeff Tweedy as she is Aretha or Bonnie Raitt. Guitarist/vocalist Travis Posey was a perfect fit with his love of the Blues. One of the best guitar players around, he's logged many hours on southern stages. Chip Dews (guitar) is just too funky to be ignored. He's a master of improvisation and just oozes rhythm. Bass guitarist Brent Irvin is a disciple of some of the greats, Duck Dunn, David Hood, and Paul McCartney are all evident in his playing. The perfect pocket player that knows how, and when to bring it. Speaking of pocket, drummer Steven Butler preaches it. The "less is more" mentality of players like Buddy Miles and Levon Helm are alive and well behind The Dozens drumset. To round out the group, they brought in veteran keyboardist Dan Hocter. One of the few true B3 players around, Dan brings a richness to the sound of the band that cannot be matched.
