Formed in 1999 and originally dubbed 24 Elders, 24E started life as a three member band, with Frontman/Guitarist Chad Fergerstrom, Bassist Allwyn Kelly and Drummer Bryan Auer being the founding members. 2000 saw them release a self-titled 13 track CD through independent label Jupiter Records, Inc.. Packaged mainly for promotional purposes, over 1,000 copies were sold just through live shows, and the song "Broken" is still getting some national radio airplay. 2002 saw their biggest changes so far as they were joined by Guitarist Travis Tingley. They shortened their name, refocused their efforts and kicked up their sound - gaining even more devout followers with their heartfelt rock. 2003 finds 24E returning to active duty with the recent recording of their most accomplished and exciting work to date, a 5 song EP titled "Dirt Love Songs". Exposing the band's newfound intensity and celebratory energy, the set features a slate of extraordinary new songs and firmly entrenches the rich guitar stylings that are becoming 24E's signature sound. The CD is available on the official website as well as cdstreet.com and is on regular rotation on live356.com through station #302079 hosted by bug777 and "Deeper" is available for download on mp3.com.

Colin McKay's Cosmic Sensations . . P.O. Box 291835 Los Feliz, CA 90027 . . 310-621-6337 . . With memorable melodies over funk-infused grooves and whimsical lyrics, Colin McKay has something to say. Sounds reminiscent of The Talking Heads, the presence of P-Funk and the zaniness of Frank Zappa are all swirled into songs that are quirky yet totally accessible. McKay has performed as singer, songwriter and guitarist in a variety of original and cover bands but with this CD he presents his own vision. Working with producer Tommy Osuna, a winner of the 2001 John Lennon Songwriting Contest, meant that the proper vibrations n' sensations were captured on the recording for sure. McKay combines wide-range influences and experiences to create a Cosmic Funk-Pop sound that is pure ear candy. People sing along to the words before they even know them. Toes tap, hands clap, and heads bop in time! There is no doubt these songs and others on the stove will create a whole lot of excitement for a whole lotta people! www.colinmckay.net hello@colinmckay.net

H.T.T.H. - Heavenly Trip To Hell . . 562-901-1904 . . Heavenly Trip To Hell is the most respected hardcore industrial band in Long Beach. Fascinated with early new wave and assorted underground music, they were determined that a hardcore electronic industrial sound was the musical direction to take. Tired of all the bands on the radio and on TV that stood for nothing and said nothing, they decided to write music where lyrics were a focal point. HTTH: “...but we're more...Slam pit, yeah, everywhere we play we make make people feel something, because we feel it. It's an anger, a desperation. . .” Sergio Mendas, bass player Vicki Vicious, keyboards Gerrardo vocals/truth HEAVENLYTRIP.COM

Haitz . . Www.richardhaitz.com . . 818 437 8524 . . 818-257-0160 . . Music is the life and blood of the soul put into sonic waves crunching against the ear drum and the heart of all people. The crunch of brutal riffs reigns supreme. However, it’s the vocals from Haitz that are the biggest surprise. The howls and growls, the whining charisma, only is more defined and prominent as the album continues. Besides the strong vocal presence, is the guitar work. Exploding into directions unforeseen, uncompromised, and unflinching. Haitz tears through tracks with brutality. After listening to their debut CD IDENTIFY, the only thing left is to see the band live! Lead Vocals, Lead Guitar Richard Haitz Lead Guitar, Backing Vocals Lyle Simmons Bass Backing Vocals, Juan Van Dunk Drums, Michael Taylor www.richardhaitz.com

She is described as having "star quality" by the writers of Rock City Music and will keep you mesmerized as the music keeps you rocking. Halo is an alt-rock band with pop sensibility. "They have redefined their sound but are still staying true to the core of the band," says local DJ Andy S. They are not afraid to push the limits lyrically and musically but still remain accessible to their audience. upcoming shows: Whiskey on Sunset Tuesday June 24th 10pm. sharp Hard Rock Cafe Beverly Hills (in the Beverly Center) Friday July 11th 10pm sharp.

Naomi Nektare's vision has finally taken flight. She has written and produced her first album, which is currently being shopped to major labels and has been giging consistantly with overflow crowds in attendance. Nektare is definitely making a name for themselves on the L.A. music scene as winners of RCN's "Best New L.A. Band" award. Nektare's music is a journey into sound - juicy psychedelic retro rock with an undercurrent of blues, soul and funk. Naomi's intelligent songwriting ranges in subject matter from social issues to spiritual visions. Her band is comprised of four musical heavy-weights - guitar, keys, drums and bass. She and her musical cohorts are a feast for the senses. Their live show is raw and wild - a wall of sound. Naomi's voice is like a tribal angel. She sings with a showing soulfullness. She is very sexy and very real. You can catch them April 26th at midnight at Paladino's for the Rock City News trademark benefit concert a.k.a. "Women Warriors." Let them lead you into the bewitching hour. Or check out their next show at the West End in Santa Monica at 11:00pm May 17th. They are the current winners of "Band Mania 2001" competition to play the House of Blues. Come see the Nektare flow.

Stereo 360.....Beyond the hype With a power pop combination of sound and lyrics, Stereo 360 has burst on the scene to be hailed by the hype machines as another one of Los Angeles' 'next big things.' However, beyond the hype lies a dynamic quartet with a talent for creating catchy tunes. With hints of Nirvana, The Pixies, Cheap Trick, The Cars and Everclear, Stereo 360's smooth melodies create a unique musical experience.

T.R. Glitz . . 4232 Fair Ave. Suite #10 Studio City, CA 91602 . . 818 509 9578 . . Launching his solo debut with T.R. Glitz, Toney Richards has decided to go back in time and go against the trend and release a potent CD of sleazy 80's Hard Rock!!! Richards is a veteran of the LA club circuit, having played his first gig in Hollywood at Gazzari's back in 1987 with the band Firestarr. His strong, versatile and unique voice, distinguish him from the rest of the pack. Add those elements to his lyrical genius and catchy melodies, mixed with his high energy stage antics and you have the complete frontman. He recently auditioned for Michael Wilton's (guitarist for Quennsryche) solo project and faired very well in his audition. He will be featured in a Australian Rock Mag called RADIOAKTIVE, in which he did a recent interview-it will be available in june. Bob Kulick has expressed interest as far as producing and the European, Japanese, Australian and South American markets have already expressed heavy interest, as far as purchasing many units of the debut CD. The release date is slated for late dec. However, a six song EP will be released in Sep. on a limited edition basis. Rumors circulated that Derek Frigo (Enuff Z Nuff), was going to play on a couple of tracks, unfortunately that will not happen. Richards is doing double duty as the frontman of the Hard Rock Band D-Zire as well. This crafty hard workin' Rocker should be getting a nice deal soon!

Throw Rag . . SALTON SEA, CA . . 562-972-7327 . . Hailing from the Salton Sea in California and purveyors of the self-coined sound of "sailor rock," Throw Rag developed their own deranged hybrid of hardcore/punk/rock, voodoo swamp boogie and nightmare roots-folk music. The psycho carny they create in live shows is seductive, terrifying and pure fun. The six-piece (including a washboard/trumpet player) doesn't cut corners when it comes to loud guitars and even louder rock and roll demonics. Their live show is virtually a dual attack of lead singer Captain Sean Doe and the maniacal Jacko on washboard. The mesmerizing derangement of watching their cheap whiskey Satan and washboard perversion leaves no one unscathed.

Tony DePetro, musician, music writer and guitarist of the Hollywood based rock band Raven’s Cry, presents an all instrumental solo piece, “The Pain of Separation.” The song expresses the emotional lows and highs when we’re in the depths of pain, when there’s space and distance in between. When we’re separated from the ones we love.
