CHUGBOAT - Dusty Futon SOCAL 6-17

7/20/2018
More
Party band CHUGBOAT return to the Dusty Futon with BRAND NEW Material...and a new sound? Well...it's more refined, and "more of a mature" sound...so they say. This gaggle of goofs are reworking their sound (just a bit) but we can still sense the party vibe and the innuendos. Even if they ARE less direct than “Papaya”. These guys are veterans of the Dusty Futon and have come back with THREE BRAND NEW TRACKS for you to peruse. We play one that you’ve NEVER HEARD OF and some of the singles...

The Rough - Dusty Futon SOCAL 6-16

7/13/2018
More
The Rough joins us on The Dusty Futon and Big Jon FINALLY gets to chat with Jules Whelpton, #ThatBlondeBassist. This girl is a riot! Jules and Darren join us ON TIME, and Drew got caught in traffic…so, it takes a few before we get to the tunes since he’s the one bringing them in. Interesting side-note about Darren…he’s the drummer for the band, and he became a drummer by accident! He’s freaking amazing on the skins and we almost never heard from him! Jules is one helluva musician herself....

That gimmick aside, fellow "Spice Pistol" Michael Fairchild "aka Maestro" (self declared) fronts this amalgamation of music. League of liars might not be telling the truth, but they...

Ricky Garcia - Dusty Futon Producers Corner 1-05

7/2/2018
More
19 Year Old Ricky Garcia may just have an old sole to go along with that soulful voice. His Rhythm and Blues voice lends itself to multiple genres as he moves his way through trials and errors…mostly trials…and mostly successful. He's been playing music since fourth grade and started actually focusing on it when a friend uploaded a video of him singing, against his will. It got attention...and he liked that he could reach people. This kid is incredibly humble, and schools all three of us...

Taz is a London transplant who came to San Diego with very little and worked hard to put out an album, playing nearly all the instruments himself on "Caffeine Racer."

6/16/2018
More
Two-Thirds of the Brett Ellis (namesake included) showed up to sit on the futon today, but the third member was there in spirit! Calvin and Brett spoke for Rick many times, making us realize (as they "enlighten us") that he didn't need to be here...as long as he shows up to the shows. Brett and Calvin take us on a journey through the old Blues and Jazz days, reminiscing of the early days of "fusion," and talking plenty about it. Their most recent album was their first-ever LIVE album...

6/4/2018
More
King Shem is a multi-talented artist from the Boston area (specifically Brockton, MA) who has transplanted himself in the San Diego scene. His decades of experience have given him an extremely wide set of skills in making his music. We spend the first 5 or 6 minutes of the episode talking about sampling, something Big Jon isn’t very familiar with; however, new host Dirty Disciple happens to be somewhat of an expert in that field. No matter…King Shem takes it upon himself to just share his...

San Diego POWER METAL band rocks so hard Tyler starts sweating! Nick has been working on this band since 2012, writing tunes and looking for other players. Good things come to those who wait, and three drummers later they have their mix! This up-and-coming group recently won a Brick by Brick competition for the Wacken Metal Battle USA, establishing themselves in the scene. They love playing there...and Brick loves having them! Tyler's puns may be awful; however, the shredding of the...

A couple of Bunch of Heathens seems like bad english, but it's what we have on the Futon today! Wes and Ryan from Bunch of Heathens joins us...Wes is a TRUE NEWB when it comes to guitars, so dont judge too harshly. This guy has only been playing for a few years and already has his own sound. Tyler jumps in to stop Spicy and Big Jon from ruining the story of why the act of picking up an axe happened to this Veteran of our Armed Forces. Stumbling through gigging and getting his sound out...

Richard Galiguis (We can't seem to pronounce it right) of Vokab Kompany and AOA takes a seat to talk the progression of his musik styles. Make sure when spelling anything from this band, you replace the "C's" with "K's" ...it's kind of their thing. Richard is a Bass player now; however, he didn't start that way...he filled in as bass for one band then again for Vokab and ended up heading the Rhythm section. Oh yeah, the guy even plays drums...the big three! His AOA roots prove that, and we...

Southern Rock in Southern California seems rather fitting if you think about, and these guys have it deep in their soul. A few of these guys are leftovers from the tribute band Skynyrd's Innyrds. This brand new band out of San Diego has their foothold already in place thanks to the members' legacies. Their first CD is coming out on May 26th and the CD Release party will be epic! We play three of their tracks form the new CD and talk about all sorts of manner of things. Of course, we talk...
