The Samples

Best known for his high voice, unique guitar playing and songwriting (“Nature”, “Feel Us Shaking”, “Did You Ever Look So Nice”) rock, reggae and folk singer/songwriter Sean Kelly front man for The samples was born February 7, 1965 in Norwalk, Connecticut. The son of a WW2 veteran and a mom who worked construction to put food on the table, Kelly grew up in Vermont. While attending only one year of high school, he began playing guitar and composing his own songs. After moving to Colorado in 1987 to start a band, Kelly became a fixture on local club stages as the front man for The Samples, playing original songs with a variety of rock, reggae and folk. When not touring with The Samples, he enjoys playing his songs acoustically. The Samples are currently recording their 20th album, Indian Summer, to be released later this year. Kelly’s songs have been featured in Perks of Being a Wallflower and more recently in television’s Younger and in ads for MSNBC’s midterm election coverage.

The Thieves About

The Thieves About don’t pretend to be anything but a high energy rock band.

Born on the West Coast in San Diego in late 2017, The Thieves About brings a ‘90s inspired guitar-driven feel to original modern rock. The band’s four members — J Scott Gavin (vocals and guitar), Brian Ulery (drums), John Reikes (guitar), and Andrew Williams (bass) — music is ‘’an intriguing mix of the sublime, if not quite ridiculous then certainly unpretentious and gloriously dumb in the smartest of ways,” according to 369 Media. Listeners might be reminded of past and current heroes like Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World, and Sponge.

Soon after getting together, the band released their self-titled debut EP. Bridging the gap between rock's past and present, the band cut their teeth on stages all over Southern California and the Phoenix Metropolitan area. Their sophomore effort, The Chaos Theory EP, followed in the summer of 2019, with the single “Hurricane” immediately receiving airplay on Southern California radio stations.

A Joyful Terrorizing Ride is set for release in the summer of 2020. The band’s third release brings their edgiest sound to date, while still including some the softer moments fans have come to embrace.
