White Reaper
The World’s Best American Band. The bold statement from Louisville’s White Reaper is not only the title of their new album, but also the band’s credo. “Because we are the best,” says guitarist/vocalist Tony Esposito. “Just like Muhammad Ali was the greatest, you gotta say it out loud for people to believe it." And with that mentality the band hit the studio with close friend and producer Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket, Young Widows) and made a good ol' fashioned in-your-face rock ’n’ roll record. “We didn’t make this record or start this band because we wanted to come across in a single, certain way," says Esposito. “We just make records that we'd want to hear. We started doing this because it's fun as hell, just as much now as it was when we were 14." Boasting textured melodies, layered guitars and more seasoned lyrics, The World’s Best American Band finds the quartet busting out of the basement sound established on their previous full length (2015’s White Reaper Does It Again) and setting their sights on the arena. Garnished with glimpses of the golden age of rock and roll, TWBAB is loaded with guitars that scream and gigantic drums in lockstep rhythm, each song packing its own massive, but none the less unique, punch. Lead single “Judy French” struts like a runway model raised on Heavy Metal Parking Lot, while midway point “The Stack” pairs a classic rock shimmy with a flair for glam. The Kentucky boys eagerly await hitting the road in 2017. Armed with a record that celebrates rock in all of its glory, they are poised to satisfy crowds whether they are packed shoulder-to-shoulder in the "standing room only" pit or kicking back in the cheap seats. “Come to the show, have a drink, have fun,” laughs Esposito. “But be nice to everybody, cause you're gonna get real close."
The Buzzards of Fuzz
The Buzzards of Fuzz are on a mission: to make rock and roll fun again.
For fans of Queens of the Stone Age, Blue Oyster Cult, or Roky Erickson – The Buzzards of Fuzz is a four piece rock outfit from Atlanta with the sound of a ‘72 Corvette Stingray plowing through the desert on half a tank of bourbon.

Their legendary live shows and critically acclaimed debut EP Buzzard Custard have earned the group generous airplay on Radio 105.7, 99X 98.9, WREK 91.1, Rock 106.1 and WXRY 99.3 as well as slots opening for Truckfighters, Cage The Elephant, T. Hardy Morris, The Glorious Sons, Gov’t Mule, Low Cut Connie and Primus .

The Buzzards of Fuzz are currently preparing for the release of their next single “You Never Bring Me Any Flowers” due July 15th.
