SIGNAL THE REVOLUTION
Members: Josh Carter (Vocals), Zach Bandy (Guitars),
Chris Marple (Guitars), Jacob Carter (Bass), Bob LeWellen (Drums)
Style: Hard Rock
Bio: Reforming In January of 2012, The newest edition of signal the Revolution
was unleashed. Adding new guitarist Chris Marple (Caldera / Flaw) The band
Unveiled an arsenal of new, in your face music that was much more aggressive,
but yet very melodic. A more focused and matured Signal The Revolution. The band
actually formed in 2009 as a four piece influenced by Alice in Chains, Metallica,
Chevelle, etc. Just after a very short while together STR began to focus on
writing and achieving the sound that we all know as Signal The Revolution today.
In 2010 The band released their first single "The Longing" which immediately
began to draw attention gaining plays on surrounding local radio stations. The
attention drawn to "The Longing" allowed the band to achieve booking/playing a
lot of out of town shows including opening for such national acts as Seven Mary
Three, Black Stone Cherry, Elephant Room, & more. After a hard year and a half
of gigging in/out of town consistently, the band decided to take some time off
and re-form the band, rejuvenate the fire. Vocalist Josh Carter mentions sitting
down the guitar to concentrate on his vocals, and to start searching for a new
rhythm/lead guitarist. So the search began. Josh contacts an old friend Chris
Marple (Caldera / Flaw) about taking over this position. After only a few
rehearsal sessions the band decides that Marple is a great fit for the band
bringing a heavier, much different element to the writing table. This would
ultimately change the bands sound, for the better.
After only a few months of gigging out and flooding the web with their new and
improved sound, STR has already began gaining a larger following in and around
there home stomping grounds of Louisville, KY. STR Released a brand new FREE 4
Song E.P. in early July of 2012.
It was recorded @ Earlygrayce Studio w/engineer Jordan Haynes. Since Releasing
their FREE E.P. Last month The band has already started to gain even more
attention from management companies, and have already began opening for
Nationals such as Hot Action Cop, Powerman 5000, & Black Stone Cherry.

The return of roots rock! Power trio, Taildragger, originally formed from members of Black Cat Bone and Nine Pound Hammer, deals in the kind of stuff that made rock n' roll what it truly is....high-octane, amplified blues. Just when we thought cool rock bands were a thing of the past, Taildragger comes along, whips out some slide guitar, pounding rhythms, soulful southern vocals and tasteful leads to turn that premise on its ear. .. .. An airtight, well-rounded bass technique, matched by none in this musical genre, combined with intricate, thunderous drumming build the foundation for each masterful
tune. Vocal stylings that croon with a growling deep southern accent nicely compliment the rhythmic, bluesy guitar work. Intricate finger-picking and ripping solos call to mind the great Billy Gibbons himself who once said, Nothing really ever reaches out and grabs me, but this did! .. .. Collectively, it all comes together to form a familiar sound that is uniquely its own Taildragger. Worthy of playing shows with the likes of Southern Culture on the Skids, Mojo Nixon, Derek Trucks, NRBQ, Storyville (Double Trouble), Shaver, Junior Brown, and many others, Taildragger always delivers an energetic live
performance that keep'em comin back for more. Greg Martin (Kentucky Headhunters), who routinely sits in with the band, describes Taildragger as sounding like "the chickens got loose in the hoglot!" Taildraggers songs, spanning the spectrum of rootsy, southern musical influences, feature classic lyrical themes of drinkin', lovin' and losin' put to toe-tappin', knee-slappin', booty-shakin' rock n' roll music. Here's what Daredevil Magazine says about Taildragger: ...It´s a bit of Lynyrd Skynyrd, a bit of Mountain, a touch of country and big piece TAILDRAGGER. It´s blues-soaked-heavy-riff-rockin' stuff...
If you like good music, you´re on the right track with Taildragger. .. .. With influences that borrow from all music genres ranging from blues to punk, bluegrass to speed metal, country to jazz, rock-a-billy to you name it, Taildragger is a much welcomed reprieve to today's typical fuzz-distortion-drop-tuning-minor-chord fury. If youre looking for a change, but still want to keep things rocking, this will definitely fit the bill. It's Americana rock n' roll, pure and simple. It sounds good and makes you feel good. What more can you ask for? So, try Taildragger. You're sure to like it.

The Broken Spurs
'The Broken Spurs are the rock 'n' roll equivalent of pure, adrenalized, single-minded lust. If there were four girls and a stack of vintage Stones records on one side of a brick wall, the Spurs would go through the wall-not around or over it, but directly through the center, emerging on the other side bleeding, horny and already writing a new song.'-Courier Journal Jeffrey Lee Puckett
Blind Puddin Blues featuringRichard Matteson
Band Members: Chris Puddin 6 & 12 string Guitars, Harp & Vocals
Richard Matteson: Guitar, Harp & Vocals
New & Used Delta, Piedmont & Chicago Blues, all performed in an authentic acoustic Juke Joint Style that is sometimes referred to as “Puddin’s Comfort Blues”
Mr. Puddin is originally from the downriver Detroit blues scene. As a refuge of the Midwest auto industry collapse he brings to Louisville a unique attitude and ability honed to perfection in the gritty Motor City. He combines these talents with the gloriously authentic down home finger & flat-picking guitar work and tasteful vocalizations of Mr. Richard Matteson. Matteson & Puddin performing as the duo Blind Puddin Blues featuring Richard Matteson specialize in bringing back the old juke joint style blues of Robert Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Muddy Waters, Otis Spann and other blues giants. Even
the newer material of B.B. King and Buddy Guy is presented in a down home, front porch manner that makes you want to kick off your shoes and sip a little lighting.
Travis will occasionally hold down the bass line as might Jim Zils, and contribute to the mix when a trio is requested. On special occasions the full-force of Blind Puddin’s All Star Blues Revue will be felt adding a talented percussionists like Jimmy, and instrumentalists and vocalists both male and female (too numerous to mention) as the situation, the event and the venue warrants.

Big Rock Show
In 2001, three friends in Louisville decided to put together a classic rock band playing all the songs they loved while growing up. Everyone said it couldn't be done. But Dave Ernspiker, Jaymes St. James and David Loyd Williams Jr. were determined to do just that. They created a classic rock band that played all the songs you know and love.
In May of 2008 Jaymes decided to move to Florida and in cam bassist/vocalist Ronnie "Bulldog" Watchmaker. "Bulldog's" vocal range, thundering bass, and showmanship brought new life to the band. The rock continued to roll as the BIG ROCK SHOW continued to get bigger ...
On April 9, 2009 tragedy stuck the band when founding member Dave Ernspiker passed away from a heart attack in his sleep. He is loved and missed by all!! The search for a new guitar player began ...
Very few people could play "over the top" like Dave, and have charisma, and be fun to be around. In walks Keven McCreery from Outspoken and Tantric ... WOW!!!! Kevin is easily one of the best guitarists in town and also brings in a great dynamic with his vocals and all around fun attitude!
Ten years and over 2400 shows in the making and the band is better than ever and rocking on as Dave would want them to!!! If you haven't seen the BIG ROCK SHOW live you need to get out and experience it for yourself... it is the best of the best in classic rock!!! Hope to see you at a show soon!!! PLAY LOUD!!!!
Jefferson Tarc Bus
JEFFERSON TARC BUS is to Louisville's rock scene what Jim Beam is to whiskey - the best there is to offer at a great price. Being vet rockers of several bands, the boys formed a tour de force like no other and set out to entertain like the big bands they grew up on. TARC BUS believes in a "BIG DUMB ROCK" mentality ... meaning that they bring an arena rock show into a bar setting. As impossible as that sounds, they pull it off effortlessly and with large fanfare.
JEFFERSON TARC BUS was formed 7 years ago behind a pool table in a bar with no fans and one bartender. Now they are lucky if they get a night off!!! The boys play 4-5 nights a week most of the time, and over a 7 year span have played over 1100 shows. These boys work their asses off, enjoy what they do, and they do it well every single night. Playing everything from KISS and AC/DC to HANK JR. and MERLE HAGGARD to GODSMACK and the current rockers of today. TARC BUS has a "no boundaries" attitude, they do it all. Pure energy, pure entertainment and pure rock and roll is what you get at a TARC BUS show. If
your bar is dying for a kick in the ass, this is your band!!!! You provide the stage, and they will bring the fun!!!!
A versatile band from Louisville with many years of experience and a wide repertoire of music. Recently celebrated 29 years playing together!
