The Funk of Forty Thousand Years started in August 2007 in Michigan. The core mission is to deliver live organic funk and soul to the masses. As the band sound matured, sprinkles of jazz improvisation started to percolate and are now a permanent fixture. Yasin Jackson has been writing and singing for many years and pounced on the opportunity to join the band. Her voice has been compared to Carole King, Erykah Badu and others. Her lyrics and vocal scats provide plenty of food for thought. Bassist Michael P. Jackson is the main composer and brought the band together. He started playing music at the age of 8, learning clarinet. Through the years he has learned many instruments including alto, tenor, and berry sax. At age 19 a date with a bass would change things forever. The Funk of Forty Thousand Years features one of the hottest rhythm sections on the scene today. In February 2008 the band completed the 2008 RPM Challenge to write, record, mix, master and press an album of 100% original material in one month. The album �One Foot� is available at all shows and will be on itunes in the coming months.

He began playing music just a few days before his 14th birthday at High School on the south side of Caucasus, where he grew up. Like most teenagers he was impressed by rock music and all its formations and as a result of it, his first step was local crossover bands. After listening for the first time to groups from New York led by masters like Max Roach, Art Blakey, Ray Brown, The Thad Jones - Mel Lewis Orchestra, Lee Morgan, Dmitry knew where he wanted to go next. He felt he needed to be around this kind of atmosphere in order to grow musically. His next step was studying at Moscow College of Music. After that, in 2008 he entered the Amsterdam Conservatory where he has studied.

"Curve Ball" article from Crystal Fawn's website Curve Ball PART II by Brad Russell, NY Freelance Pro Sessionist/Bassist Dec 31, 2008 Ok, the second "curve ball' I was thrown was on the very next day! I had planned to "watch the bass book" on a very successful and popular Broadway musical (let me explain the term "watch the book": it refers to a musician who plans on subbing for the regular player; s/he sits in the pit with the other musicians and watches the entire show). I was attending the 2:00 pm matinee on a very crowded Saturday afternoon in midtown Manhattan - the trains were slow, it was pouring rain and I was running late! All I could think was, "great, this is not the way I want to make my first impression!"

Squirrels From Hell have been playing and recording in New York City for over thirty years.

Since their 1980’s birth their music has become more sophisticated and their lyrics more, well, literate. Over the last ten years the influence of Larry Brown, their drummer and vocal arranger, has given a professional polish to songs that still explore the darker side of the human condition. The trio has been expanded to include sax, which adds yet another level of sophistication to a band once called “the lowest of the low-rent bands” by the Village Voice, but now celebrated by at least one critic as “the most powerful, majestic, and intellectually challenging band of our time.

When Rock 'n' Roll Johnny was a baby, his mom would put a transistor radio in his crib to keep him occupied while she did chores in the house. Fortunately, the radio was tuned to WINS, the premier rock 'n' roll radio station in New York City at the time. Who knows how things might have turned out had that radio been tuned to a station with a different format. Little Rock 'n' Roll Johnny spent many days trying to figure out how the disc jockeys and the singers of the pop hits all fit inside that tiny transistor radio.

www.powerpresskits.com/PPKs/index.aspx?PPK=12352
Raised in the church by her grandmother "Elder One Whitaker", Twelve Watts began singing as a youth and never looked back. She is an international artist and music has always been a calling that couldn't and wouldn't be denied. Music, this universal medium, transcends race, creed, gender, education and language. No barrier is strong enough to stop its mighty wings from spreading across the globe, touching every heart in its path. "This world we live in today has many hurting people, so many lost souls. My heart cries out to these individuals as we are all God's children. All of us - like it or not. There's a very specific tonal influence in music, a special sound that can heal, uplift, enlighten, and stop somebody from committing suicide that very day. Music is also a weapon. It can usher in the power of light. That's where I come in."
