“Heidi McDonald, one of the original members of the local band Attitude Cat in the early 1990’s, hails from Pittsburgh, PA. She stopped playing out in the late 90’s, but never stopped writing music, having done jingle work for radio and television, and composing music for use in films, podcasts, and video games. After serving six years as an elected official and winning awards for her freelance writing, she embarked on a second award-winning career in video game design. Author of “Digital Love: Romance and Sexuality in Games,” she travels the world lecturing, educating about video game design, wearing elaborate hats, and generally popping up at events as her goth pirate alter-ego, Lizzie Bones. This benefit marks her first return to the musical stage in nearly 20 years, publicly debuting her latest original music from an upcoming collection called Haunted Places, and flying in from her hometown of Pittsburgh to perform again with old and new friends.”


Rock & Roll  /  Phoenix, Arizona

Wyves is the culmination of experience and passion between 4 kindred players to create good Rock & Roll music in Today's Day & Age. Well written, dynamic songs drenched in groovin' swagger that will be stuck in your head for days; A live energy and performance that you will never forget. That's what these boys deliver.

Wyves formed and released their first full length album shortly after in February 2016. Through local press acclaim and word-of-mouth live performances they quickly became a top contender in the Phoenix Music Scene.  They've had multiple headline sellouts at many of the landmark Arizona venues as well as landed sets at popular Arizona Music Festivals (M3F and Apache Lake Music Festival) Wyves have shared the stage with notable National & Rising acts: Beck, Gary Clark Jr, Dr. Dog, Chet Faker, Cut/Copy, Juliette Lewis, Steel Panther, Badflower, Vista Kicks, Stone Foxes, Soft White Sixties, Jessica Hernandez & The Deltas, to name a few. Not strangers to success in previous music endeavors, they have collectively shared the stage and toured in previous projects with Guns N' Roses, Aerosmith, Taj Mahal, The Black Angels, Kid Rock, Cheap Trick, The Flaming Lips, Rival Sons and Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros.

In 2017 they made it a point to establish their name in many major cities and markets through touring and online outreach. The release of their single "Bitch Has Got Problems" saw a National press campaign that garnered features and acclaim (American Blues Scene, Idobi, Mystic Sons & more). There has been no stop in momentum in 2018 - the band has been hard at work recording their second full length album, R U OK?, set for release in September 2018. Tour dates in support of the album to be announced soon.


Sick Black Automatic is an old school Dirty Desert Metal Band. An aggressive, brutal force in the Phoenix metal scene. 

Inspired by many genres, main influences include Black Sabbath, Metallica, Pantera, Van Halen, Kingdom of Sorrow, Slayer, and Fear Factory.

Quickly joined by guitarist Brian Olliphant, bassist Jason Hobbs, and guitarist Terry Babicz, the metal onslaught began. 
In 2016 Sick Black Automatic recorded their debut single, "Bleeding Out" which has been featured on the podcast Dustbowl Metal Show, and is on the DBMS compilation CD.
In 2017, Sick Black Automatic won AZ Talent Best Heavy Metal Song for “Flat Dark Earth”.
In 2018 Sick Black Automatic released their Debut CD “Caught in the Black”.


SARAH CHAPMAN

Greasy, Southern Fried Rock and Roll. Blackwater Lake is “Red Dirt Rock” at its core. While David Allen’s sandpaper delivery of his illustrative lyrics lulls you, the dual guitar attack of John Palmer and Steven DeVoss will punch you in the mouth. 

With international acclaim for his provocative song writing and BMI credits from multiple releases, Allen has put together the current incarnation of Blackwater Lake based out of the Phoenix market and they are burning up stages across the southwest.

Michael Nitro.

“[Performing his original songs is] what his fans love him best for… rock guitar, seasoned with blues sound.” – Fast Lane Magazine
The singer/songwriter and guitarist has warmed the crowd for national acts from The Allman Brothers to Neil Young including Bon Jovi, Deep Purple, Grand Funk Railroad, REO Speedwagon and the list goes on.
“I have so many amazing memories and have been incredibly fortunate to share the stage with legendary performers like Sammy Hagar, Bo Diddley and Sam Moore. I view each experience as a lesson in greatness.” – Michael Nitro
Although Michael has written outside of the rock genre, he is heavily inspired and influenced by the dynamics of Led Zeppelin; the unique phrasing ability of Bad Company lead vocalist and founder, Paul Rodgers; and the raw, sexy, rasp of Steven Tyler of Aerosmith.
The Michael Nitro Band unleashes the child-like spirit from old and young alike keeping the audience engaged and cheering for more.

Biography
SectaS (cult, sect, domination) is a band like no other. This trios brand of high energy metal featuring Christian Lee (lead vocals/lead guitar) David "Runaway" SectaS (bass) and Brian Regalado (drums/back-up vocals) will invade your very soul. Reminiscent of early Megadeth meets Rush, SectaS' music is hard driving, yet melodic with a positive message behind every lyric. Christian's guitar licks rival all of the "guitar God's" the industry has fed music lovers from day one. Runaways bass tactics tantalize the beast within to scream his name like the teenage groupie of yesteryear, and Brian's fierce double-kick abilities will reach into your chest and force your heart rhythm to match his beats. SectaS' musical influences span from Alice in Chains to Led Zeppelin and beyond, while maintaining a truly unique sound.

​Sectas are the winners of the Producer's Choice Hard Rock Band of the Year 2015 L.A. Music Awards(http://www.prlog.org/12495980-metal-band-sectas-sizzles-on-sunset-blvd-at-the-la-music-awards.html). Released on their album "Hopes of a New Time", SectaS' hit single "Hear Me Loud" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cIoJ_FEFJys) is an anthem to announce their presence with profound authority. SectaS has opened for amazing national acts such as Queensrÿche, Y&T, Papa Roach, and many others. SectaS has so many stellar accomplishments they could brag about insistently, yet they choose humility and true brotherhood to egotistical rants which is quite rare in music. These qualities make SectaS' fans loyal for LIFE, not just a passing fancy to anyone that claims SectaS fandom. Christian Lee is endorsed with ESP guitars, Tsunami Cables, Erafuzz Pedals and Miktek Microphones (http://www.espguitars.com/artists), David “Runaway” Sectas is endorsed with Spector Bass, Krank amps and Tsunami Cables


Brian Regalado is endorsed by Miktek Microphones,  and Sectas is sponsored by Coldcock Whiskey (http://www.coldcockwhiskey.com/#crews/artist/284). Sectas has been featured in ION Indie Magazine worldwide (https://www.joomag.com/magazine/ion-indie-magazine-march-2015-volume-10/0373184001422483683

Pages 182-189), The Phoenix New Times has called Christian Lee one of the top 15 guitarists in all of Arizona (http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/uponsun/2014/11/top_best_15_guitarists_phoenix_metal_scene.php) as well as one if the top 10 vocalists (http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/uponsun/2014/04/top_10_valley_metal_vocalists.php?page=5). Phoenix New Times has also named SectaS one of the top 10 best metal shows one MUST see while in AZ (http://blogs.phoenixnewtimes.com/uponsun/2014/05/top_10_metal_shows_metro_phoenix_april_2014.php?page=4). If SectaS is playing anywhere near you, missing their show could be the worst decision of your life... Go towww.sectasmusic.com and hear what you've been missing!!!
