The Candymakers are a Rock N' Soul band with the traditions of old-school R&B and,funk. This young band offers a sound that is contemporary, yet keeps the essence of music past. Though the band is known for its soulful male vocalist, it is anchored by the collaborative genius of its blues driven guitarist, gospel influenced female back-up vocals and funky rhythm section. Often joined by a rotating cast of horn players, the band can be seen with up to 12 members on stage.
After forming in 2010, they were awarded 1st place in the 2011 Iowa Blues Challenge. After reaching the semi-finals in both The International Blues Challenge and The Kings of Beale Street Competition, they returned home to release their debut album in February of 2012. Their second studio effort "Ridiculicious" was released in September of 2014. The band has spent the last two years touring regionally around the midwest.
Imagine if The Alman Brothers Band went on a trippy magic carpet ride with The Black Keys and all of it was being narrated by Van "The Man" Morrison. That is pretty much Vintage Pistol, a 5 Piece rock band out of Fayetteville, AR. Influenced by the sounds of psychedelic, roots, rock music Vintage Pistol is doing just as its name states and is staying vintage and true to the sounds that were laid down by the Giants before them. The band will be releasing its 2nd EP "The Second Amendment" in August 2016.
"Vintage Pistol plays rock n’ roll. But that’s putting it too simply. As with any band with diverse players, their music sort of eludes specific genres.. from Ryan Adams to Zakk Wylde, Pink Floyd and The Doors, the band shows shades of their backgrounds at different moments in their sets." - The FayettevilleFlyer
Vintage Pistol has played along side the likes of Doyle Bramhall ii, Jonathan Tyler, Quaker City Nighthawks, Charlie Crockett, Quiet Company, The Black Moods, Coyote Union, and more. They have also played at Wakarusa Music Festival in 2015, played showcases at SXSW in 2016, and will be headlining the Whiskey Dicks stage this year at their 2nd straight Zerkapalooza.
If you come to a live show, be prepared for an energy and passion that will be second to none! The band is taking their vibes and the sound to the next level. Seizing every opportunity as if it were their last, this band is here to stay.
