The Quixote Project
The Quixote Project is a neo-roots music outfit. From Rock to Rockabilly, Bluegrass to Blues we like to pull from traditional genres to blur the fine lines of modern music. We recently release our new set of song off the EP "Bone Shaker" and were nominated as NJ Indie Band of the Year by Tri State Indie. Our single "Tread Easy" was nominated as best folk song of the year by 93.7 Hometown hero's. And were nominated as Best NJ Indie band by Tri State Indie.
Smoke & Bourbon
Smoke & Bourbon is a blues rock band, formed from members of Philadelphia rock band, The Better Half. With style influences from blues, folk, country, punk, and loud rock-n-roll, Ray Milanese (Vocals, Guitars) and Patrick Keating (Drums, Guitars) have created a sound born from yesterday but unique to today. The band combines some of the classic southern rock writing style of the legendary rock bands of yesterday with a modern drive to push the sonic and creative envelope. With their debut EP currently being recorded in a small little studio in NJ, the band is capturing the raw emotion in its writing in an environment that puts the music first and everything else a distant second. It's fun, pure, raw, and above all, it's honest.
Pawnshop Roses
Pawnshop Roses
Pawnshop Roses are Paul Keen, Kevin Bentley, Justin Monteleone, Mike Walsh and Zil. Their sound is comprised of well crafted songs in the singer/songwriter vein, laced with Saturday night guitars and swagger, played by guys with nothing to lose and everything to prove.

In 2004 the band released its first EP "Dead Man's Radio" taken from a line in Keen's song "Here We Go," and sold out its first few pressings rather quickly due to a solid following and grass roots marketing.

In 2005 they were selected out of hundreds of bands by legendary Philly radio station WMMR to open for Velvet Revolver and Hoobastank. WMMR (heard in PA, NJ and DE) has graciously helped the band by frequently playing their song "Fading Out" having them perform on-air and promoting their shows.

In 2006 the band won the YouTube Underground Video contest for Best Live Video for their video of "Gets so Hard".

TV appearances: As a result of winning the You Tube award, the band appeared on ABC's Good Morning America. They have also played live on the local NBC and CBS morning shows. Their song "All the Way Down" was recently featured on MTV's the Real World XX.

Live accomplishments Opened for: Velvet Revolver, Hoobastank, Robert Randolph and Molly Hatchet. This summer they played with Radio Head, Jack Johnson and slew of others at the All Points West festival.

Print interviews: Interviews with Time Magazine, Relix magazine, and the Philadelphia Inquirer.

On the radio: Cuts from Let It Roll and Versions have been played on radio stations across America. Special live on-air performance on 104.5 fm Philadelphia

Record label: Signed to Earvolution Records, a small indie label that shares the same ideas and visions as the band. The first full length record on Earvolution, "Let it Roll" was produced by Pete Donnelly of the Figgs (Amos Lee/G-Love/Graham Parker) at Milkboy Recording (Gomez/Townhall) with a couple song co-arrangements by noted alt-country artist Tom Gillam. Pete Donnelly adds some vocal, guitar and bass backing on a few tracks while Jonn Savannah (Van Morrison, Joe Cocker, Squeeze) sits in for piano on "Here We Go" and "Planning Out Your Heart." The band recently recorded at the legendary Sun Recording Studios in Memphis. New EP "Versions" and the album "Let It Roll are currently available online at all major digital music stores (Itunes, Rhapsody, etc.)

Let it Roll Reviews:
"On other standouts like opening track "Here We Go", the band proves it can keep time with contemporaries like Ryan Adams and Jesse Malin." Pop Matters

"The rock 'n roll of the enthusiastic and non-cynical...Let It Roll may be the record that 'brings the biggest smile to your face' this year." Americana UK

Their latest release "Versions" also sees the return of Pete Donnelly at the producer helm for two tracks. "Second Hand Love" exemplifies the Versions theme by appearing twice, once as a retro soul throwback and the other pure Americana. Both get some outside help from members of Robert Randolph's Family Band. Lenesha Randolph lends backing vocals to the soul version and Jason Crosby adds some piano and fiddle to the Americana track. Versions also includes three songs recorded live at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, Tennessee and a raucous live version of "Statesboro Blues."

• Over 225,000 YouTube video views of "Gets So Hard"
• Let It Roll hit #21 on the HomeGrown Radio charts, passing such established touring acts as moe and Umphreys McGee.
• "All The Way Down" featured on MTV's "The Real World"
