Amplified Heat
Amplified Heat
Rock N Roll, Blues, Psych Rock from Austin TX

In a time where everybody has to put a label on a band to try and separate or distinguish what kind of music they play, Amplified Heat adopts Lemmy from Motorhead's philosophy....ROCK AND ROLL! Emitting a truly menacing blues psych-rock sound from four massive walls of double stacked Marshall and Fender cabinets and a 1966 Ludwig drum kit in between - Amplified Heat continues the Texas tradition of pure, fearless rock and roll.

From Cali, Colombia the Ortiz brothers have been playing music together since the early 90’s and formed Amplified Heat in 2003. Based on a tradition of bone rattling blues they take a direct approach to intense riff slinging - never pulling punches and delivering the real deal with every sonic tsunami they unleash. The band has released four full length EP’s and their next album “Madera” is due out in early 2018. The band’s sound pulls from a variety of influences including Cream, Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath, Canned Heat, Motorhead, ZZ top, and Deep Purple.

Amplified Heat has shared the stage with Blue Cheer, The Black Angels, Clutch, Thee Oh Sees, Honky, Atomic Bitchwax, Kylesa, Kadavar, Ian Moore, Dead Meadow, Corky Lang’s Mountain, Buffalo Killers, Nashville Pussy, Dresden 45, and Roky Erickson amongst many others. They make multiple appearances every year at Austin’s South by Southwest Festival, have played at Ohio based Emissions from the Monolith Festival, and Oakland California’s Burger Bugaloo.
Zach Longoria Project
Zach Longoria Project
ZLP is an Original, High energy, R&B band from Louisville, Kentucky.

The Zach Longoria Project is an 11-member band from Louisville with an incredibly soulful vein. With R&B seated at the core of their music, ZLP weaves elements of jazz and a touch of old-school this & that to create what they like to call “Kentucky Fried Soul”. Their music has just the right amount of the south mingled in.

ZLP is a collaboration of musicians who are all in it for the love of music, and are driven by the passion of creating it. They came together in 2013 in a town that is much smaller than it seems. Zach had a vision early- to have a band that was made up of people who are good to each other and share the same set of values, musically and by virtue. This group is a close-knit partnership of kindred spirits, and it shines through in the music they put forth.

In July 2014, ZLP released their self-titled album. They were also featured on WFPK, a Louisville radio station, where they participated in the “Live Lunch” series.
The Zach Longoria Project has been working hard since July performing, and the touring continues, so please be sure to check out upcoming show dates.
