The Expendables Lifes a Beach Tour Biography
The Expendables enjoyed a laid-back lifestyle growing up in Santa Cruz, CA; surfing, skating, partying, and playing music were commonplace. Since 1997, The Expendables have staked their claim in the California surf/rock genre by headlining venues from coast to coast. Blending Reggae, Punk Rock, and 80s style dueling guitar solos, The Expendables have made heads turn and floors shake for years.
The band consists of four longtime friends: Geoff Weers (Guitar and Vocals), Adam Patterson (Drums and Vocals), Raul Bianchi (Lead Guitar) and Ryan DeMars (Bass). The first seven years of their career was fueled with three full-length, completely independent releases. No Time To Worry (2000), Open Container (2001), and Gettin’ Filthy (2004), would bring in a combined total of over 40,000 units sold with no physical distribution and no record label.
While touring and supporting their album, Gettin’ Filthy, The Expendables would share the stage with Slightly Stoopid and catch the attention of founders and front men Kyle McDonald and Miles Doughty. In 2007 Slightly Stoopid formed their own independent label, Stoopid Records, and signed The Expendables for the label’s first non-Stoopid release, which was The Expendables self-titled. Released in September 2007, the album would be accepted as an instant classic by fans and received rave reviews from critics.
The band continued supporting the album with hundreds of shows over the next two years, gaining fans around the world, and respect from the bands that influenced them. The band would share the stage with bands like Slightly Stoopid, NoFX, Less Than Jake, Pennywise and Pepper to name a few. At the end of 2009 and beginning of 2010 the band would work on their next album Prove It produced by Paul Leary (producer of Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, Supersuckers, as well as the guitar player for Butthole Surfers) and El Hefe (guitar player for NoFX).
Prove It was released May 11th 2010 debuting at #158 on the Billboard Top 200, #30 on Billboard’s Independent charts, and #4 on Billboard’s Heatseekers! The album also pushed to #15 on iTunes Top 200 and #5 on iTunes Alternative Charts, jumping The Expendables to a new level in their career. The band’s new release would include guest performances by C-Money, OG, and Dela of Slightly Stoopid throughout the album. Jumping into the mix as well would be long time friend G. Love on the ballad “Wells”.
The Expendables have continued their tenacious touring schedule in 2011 and was a featured band on all dates of the massive yearly festival favorite, Warped Tour. Starting 2012 strong, The Expendables rang in the New Year with Slightly Stoopid at Hard Rock Live in Orlando, shortly followed after by their annual Winter Black Out Tour.
After numerous hours in studio, The Expendables released their 6th full-length studio album, “Gone Soft” in May 2012. Highlighting the versatile and dynamic musicianship of the band, the album is an all acoustic album, showcasing previous popular songs as mellow acoustic ballads. In support of the album, the Expendables will be joined by Unwritten Law on an acoustic/electric tour around Southern California giving fans the chance to experience the powerful and energetic performance that has made The Expendables such a unique band in it’s genre while also introducing fans to a new, “softer” side to their music.
Thirteen years later and countless miles covered, The Expendables show no sign of slowing down.
Pacific Dub Biography
Comprised of vocalist and rhythm guitarist- Colton Place, lead guitarist- Bryce Klemer, bassist- Ryan Naglich, drummer- David Delaney, keyboardist- Sean Rawlings, and audio engineer- Casey Eubanks; Pacific Dub is one of the youngest and newest bands to solidify themselves as professionals within the Reggae-Rock scene.
Homegrown in Denver Colorado, Tatanka is a quartet specializing in the sounds of dub, progressive reggae, dancehall, and electro soundscapes. Heavy Caribbean drum and bass grooves provide the pulse for the party as the music invites you to get down and dirty. In March of 2010, this group of Denver dub samurais released their first studio E.P. entitled Sounds in Technicolor. Sounds in Technicolor has reached over 7,000 downloads through Tatanka’s website and social networking sites. Their music has been dubbed as drum and bass music for a new generation, a twist on new and old reggae riddim’s, and an instant classic. The pulsing basslines provided by Tatanka’s Malonestar seem to rock the mind into trance while Champian’s guitar work and The Mexico’s hi-hat, snare and kick drum 4/4 playing styles pepper over the top of the album’s four track’s almost flawlessly.
Tatanka has shared the stage with many major national and international acts that include but are not limited to: Eoto, Slightly Stoopid, The Motet, Easy Star All-Stars, The Black Seeds, John Brown’s Body, The Expendables, Groundation, Iration, Passafire and more.
