Night Ranger truly epitomizes the sound of the 80’s while at the same time transcending it. Since their reunion in 1996, they have brought their guitar-crunching, melodic brand of Hard Rock into the 21st century with unparalleled talent, energy and creativity.
Night Ranger’s legendary hits "Sister Christian," "(You Can Still) Rock in America," and "Don't Tell Me You Love Me" are songs that have each significantly impacted popular culture and expanded their ever-growing fan base since the band’s inception. Night Ranger’s contributions are featured in multiple entertainment realms, including the Broadway musical "Rock of Ages" and hit video game series "Rock Band" and "Guitar Hero." The band has also been recognized in such significant films and television shows as Boogie Nights and American Dad.
Frontiers Records proudly announced the release of WINGER's fifth studio album entitled "Karma" on October 16th in Europe and October 27th in the USA.
WINGER reunited after more than a decade in 2006 for the release of the successful comeback album entitled IV a record that pushed the boundaries of the WINGER classic sound to new heights. Dealing with the concept of the military life and what it was like to be a soldier, from a soldier's perspective, leaving politics at the door. "After Winger IV we toured the United States, Europe, Australia and Japan and made a live record" says Kip Winger. "When the chance came up to do a new Winger record, I envisioned a upbeat totally rocking record that was a cross between the 1st Winger album and Pull. So, Reb and I sat down and wrote all the music in a month or so. I worked for 6 months to finish it in the classic Winger style".
Great White started their career as Dante Fox, playing their first gig in 1981 at The Troubadour in Hollywood, California.
In 1982, founding members Mark Kendall, Jack Russell, drummer Gary Holland, and bassist Lorne Black recorded and released a 5-song EP, Out of the Night, with producer Don Dokken on the independent label Aegean formed by their manager Alan Niven. Niven then convinced the Los Angeles radio station KMET to begin adding songs from the EP to its playlist in heavy rotation. KLOS-FM soon did the same. The band suddenly went from drawing 100 people at local clubs to drawing thousands. As an unsigned act, Great White headlined at Six Flags Magic Mountain in Valencia playing to 6,250 people. Near the end of 1983, EMI America signed the band and subsequently released Great White’s eponymous debut album in early 1984. The band immediately toured the UK supporting Whitesnake’s Slide It In tour and the entire US and Canada opening for Judas Priest’s Defenders of the Faith tour. Their follow up release was Shot in the Dark, which was reissued by Capitol Records. After the release of Shot in the Dark, Great White hit the road with Dokken and was on the verge of even bigger success.
The band hit the mainstream in 1987 when they released Once Bitten…, which featured the hits “Rock Me” and “Save Your Love”,( a song which neither the producer nor the record label wanted on the album as they felt it was too soft). Russell informed them that he would quit if the song was not included. Once Bitten… was certified platinum in April 1988.
The band followed up with …Twice Shy in 1989. The album included their biggest hit, “Once Bitten, Twice Shy”, a cover of a UK hit single by Ian Hunter. They received a Grammy Award nomination for Best Hard Rock Performance. The album was certified platinum in July 1989 and then double platinum in September of that same year. They finished off the 80s touring in support of …Twice Shy as headliners and with some best known bands, such as Bon Jovi.
Scarlet Machine is a four-piece rock band made up of teens from the San Francisco Bay Area. These young musicians are making music like it used to be: jamming, not manufacturing.
With roots in jazz, rock and funk, Scarlet Machine is about musicianship, great songs, and energetic performances. What you see is what you get. All too often, bands in concert sound nothing like their CD. Scarlet Machine refuses to be one of those bands.
Scarlet Machine draws from a wide array of inspirations because its members are so different. Kyle’s main inspirations are bands like Creed and Paramore. Keller’s inspirations roll to Queen and Radiohead. Nick’s include AC/DC and Guns N’ Roses. Matt’s are bands like A Day to Remember and The Devil Wears Prada.
Kyle says: “We are sort of like a recipe of rock. Each of us is a certain ingredient that wouldn’t be very good by itself, but combined it tastes amazing!”
Their latest studio effort, “On Fire” was released September 24th, 2011 and was recorded and engineered by Teddy Gyi, mixed by Juan Urteaga of Trident Studios and mastered by Brad Gillis of Night Ranger.
Working with some of the best in the industry keeps the band busy and productive — while working new tracks for the next studio effort, one of the songs from the EP was selected for the feature-film “Refuge”. Debuting at 11 major film festivals in 2013, the film features cameo appearances as well as additional soundtrack elements by Scarlet Machine.
This band of true artists will get your blood pumping. Their energy, passion and skill deliver audiences an authentic modern rock show.
Scarlet Machine is endorsed by Dean Markley Strings and Nady Wireless Systems, Inc.

So what was next??? The birth of "Scattered". With Steve Castro fronting the band and laying down sweet Bass riffs, Dean Pfeiffer and Tom Kellogg bringing the "Two Headed Lead Guitar Monster" and Scott McDonald delivering the Percussive Thunder, Scattered brings energy,passion and a huge sound to any stage!!! Whether its the Hard Rock Music of the 80's and 90's to the addition of original music forthcoming, come out and join us!!
