Bumblefoot
Ron 'Bumblefoot' Thal is an award-winning Multi-instrumentalist, Vocalist, Songwriter, Producer and World-renowned Guitar virtuoso, with over 20 years of releasing music, playing international festivals and headlining tours, and gracing magazine covers as a solo artist. As lead guitarist of Guns N' Roses (2006 – 2014) Bumblefoot toured sold-out shows all over the world, headlining festivals with crowds up to 150,000. Bumblefoot's unique 'fretless guitar' can be heard throughout GNR's 2008 Chinese Democracy album.

Bumblefoot's recent Little Brother Is Watching album is an eccentric, upbeat collection of epic, modern rock with haunting melodies, huge choruses and witty lyrics about life in the digital age and beyond. The album was composed, produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by Bumblefoot at his own studio, and includes a crowd of 100 fans stomping, chanting and singing backing vocals recorded at a listening party in New York. The day after its release, the album went as high as #4 on the Amazon.com Rock charts in Europe.

Bumblefoot's recent collaborations include rock group Art Of Anarchy (featuring ex-Creed vocalist Scott Stapp replacing former vocalist Scott Weiland, and Disturbed bassist John Moyer) and Fragile Mortals (featuring DMC from the iconic rap group Run DMC and ex-Exodus vocalist Rob Dukes). Bumblefoot is also an accomplished composer whose music is often heard in TV, film and video games including the theme song to VH1's "That Metal Show". Bumblefoot has worked as an adjunct Professor at SUNY Purchase College teaching music production, works with U.S. Embassies around the world on cross-cultural music programs, has his own line of award-winning hot sauces, and works with dozens of international charities visiting orphanages and children's hospitals around the World with guitar in hand.
Strong Suit
Strong Suit
Strong Suit has been called a Seattle super group, which might sound strange considering you may not have heard of some of the musicians in the band. But if you’ve seen much live music in Seattle, you’ve probably seen these guys play. Strong Suit is made up of the some of the most in demand, most respected sidemen in town, each getting the chance in this project to play to their strength- their Strong Suit- free from the restrictions of someone else’s name on the marquee.
The seed was planted in 2012 when Sean and Justin finally fulfilled their longtime desire to write music together. Soon after the pair had worked out a few tunes, they got ahold of the best players they knew, guys they had been playing with in various projects for years, and the result was stunning: the whole much greater than the sum of its parts. Everyone realized this was an opportunity for a whole new kind of project, and Strong Suit was born. A week later they played their first show, one of the perks afforded a band of pros!
This is a great live band. Their shows are bursting with energy, excitement, and chops. For a taste, take a listen to their debut EP. The band recorded the tracks live at Studio Litho in one day (only one of the songs took a second take, the rest were all first takes). The following day they added a little polish- acoustic guitars, backup vocals, etc.- and that was it! Mix, master, release. When you see the band live, the music is just as tight as on the record, but full of wild improvisations and that intense symbiotic energy that the best bands find with their audiences.
These guys are some of the busiest working players in Seattle, which means the band doesn’t get to play together very often. Don't miss your next chance to see STRONG SUIT!
The Janitors Of Chaos
Rock you like a...tropical cyclone? That doesn't sound right.
