Fayuca
Fayuca
Phoenix, Arizona based, Fayuca, is a Reggae-Rock/ Latino group, fronted by originating, member Gabo Fayuca. Their sound shifts through genres while blending modern-reggae melodies with Latin percussion, tied seamlessly by razor guitar riffs and progressive rock breakdowns.

Their music has been featured on MTV, Univision, FOX Sports and other popular TV networks. Fayuca’s instrumental, La Venganza, was hand picked by movie director Robert Rodriguez to be used as the main title theme to El Rey Network’s original series, MATADOR.

Currently backed by bass player, Mario Sepulveda, trumpet player, Danny Torgersen, and drummer, Richard Duran, and Tycoon endorsed percussionist, Arturo Sosa, the five piece has become a national and international touring act. They have shared the stage with leaders in their genre like Molotov, 311, Cultura Profetica, Slightly Stoopid, Sublime with Rome, Damien Marley, Gondwana and many more.

While finishing high school in Tolleson, Arizona, Gabo sparked an interest for writing music and forming a bilingual-rock band. Since their first album release in 2004, Fayuca has launched four studio albums, including Barrio Sideshow, released on Fervor Records in 2013. Their songs promote Latino culture, good vibes, and self-identification. Touring insatiably between writing and recording music, Fayuca strives to inspire people around the world by spreading a message of courage, love, and empowerment.
Black Bottom Lighters
Black Bottom Lighters
Arizona is where desert-reggae rockers Black Bottom Lighters call home. They are well on their way to outgrowing their town like other recent native products such as Jimmy Eat World, Authority Zero, and Chester Bennington of Linkin Park. Black Bottom Lighters are affectionately known as BBL to a large, animated following. A following that started when they were a young, house party band originating in 2010. Since then, BBL has released a self-titled EP, full length album "2 or 2,000," as well as made several music videos on YouTube, like "Home Grown," which has generated over 150,000 views alone! They were also voted as Phoenix New Times Reader's Choice Award for "Best Local Band" of 2015!

After supporting the debut full length album "2 or 2,000" in the summer of 2015 from Mexico to Michigan, Black Bottom Lighters officially updated their band lineup. One of the originating members "T" (Taide Pineda, vocals/guitar) decided to gracefully exit as well-acquainted Mike Proctor was able to fill the heavy void left behind. Lead guitarist, Phil Kaiser, and Mike go back many years and the band had played with him several times as an occasional fill-in so he was a natural fit. Mike and Phil have an accustomed style feeding off each other that is audibly gratifying to the listener. The musicianship definitely speaks for itself during live performances and on the 2016 "Pipe Dream EP." Also, on the EP you will find their very first guest feature, a collaboratoration with Layzie Bone from Bone Thugs & Harmony on a track called "Peace, Love & Smoke Rings." A song that very well could be one of their most popular songs yet with heavy bass and a hook that could be found on a regular rotation on the radio.

Despite the band's lineup change their style stays the same; unmistakable vocal rhymes from Ryan Stilwell (Stilly), hard hitting beats from drummer Ryan McPhatter (McPhatty), the groove-filled bass of Jose Aquino, electrifying keys of Keyln Weaver, as well as their signature call and response and tremendous harmonizing! Black Bottom Lighters has ruled stages from Mexico to Texas, California, Oregon, throughout Arizona, Colorado, Iowa, Ohio, Michigan, to Florida, and even Legends of Notre Dame in Indiana! The bands and artists they have shared the stage with is much too long to list but they have been featured at Big Ticket Music Festival in Jacksonville, FL and numerous Southwest music festivals: Wild Wild West Fest, Uplift Music and Arts Festival, Unity Festival, True Music Festival, McDowell Mountain Music Festival, Pot of Gold Festival, Apache Reggae Jam, and Tempe Beach Park with headliners Rebelution and Atmosphere. Their determination to bring the top shelf quality, all-original, reggae-rock sound from the Arizona desert across the country is quite clear. And even if it's a show of "2 or 2,000" they are going to give it everything they got all the same!
Mouse Powell
Mouse Powell
Mouse Powell is the world's most reluctant rapper. Mouse Powell loves dogs, and has been making music accordingly since 2011. His debut album "Where It's Cloudy" surely pleased some people, but his follow up album "These Are The Good Times" was at least twice as effective. After taking a blood oath with Tempe based producer, The Ref, the duo have been making genre bending and life altering music ever since. As the two gear up to release another project they will continue their award winning formula of whiskey and friendship to bring the world an album that truly reflects their life long commitment to reluctantly being awesome. Mouse Powell is for you. Mouse Powell is you. Mouse Powell.
Reviva
music scene through their inspiring lyrics, unique sound, and positive vibes. Forming in the fall of 2009, they have turned ears with their original Burqueño/Reggae/Rock rhythm and lyrics, both in English and Spanish that touch the soul.

Consisting of seven members; Glenn “Buddha” Benavidez (Bass), Cody Jones (Percussion), Ragon Espinosa (Drums), Jerel Garcia (Guitar) Rick Gonzales(keys, Melodica) Brian Shonerd(keys) and Chris Brennan (Vocals/Song writer). They started performing at small local venues for friends and family, but have quickly staked their claim as one of New Mexico’s premier bands. They have played at venues such as Sunshine Theater and Hard Rock Pavilion and are a mainstay at the Launchpad and local pubs. Reviva has opened for the likes of The Wailers, Ozomatli, The Expendables, Fishbone, Tribal Seeds and The Dirty Heads. One of their biggest achievements so far was being voted to play main stage at Edgefest 2012; beating out over 100 bands for the honor. As well as winning a nationwide vote to play at Arise Festival in Colorado. These accomplishments was really a testament to the dedicated fan base Reviva has formed in their time as a band.

Revíva’s mission as a band is to revive themselves and others through the healing power of music and to give back and help those in the community. They aim to spread positivity and inspire change in the way people think and act. Perhaps the greatest act of selflessness is evident in the actions of lead singer Chris Brennan, who dedicated two and a half years of his life to join the Peace Corps. He was volunteering in Pearl Lagoon, Nicaragua teaching English and helping their community. His goal is to start a music exchange program between Nicaragua and Albuquerque students. Despite Chris’ absence, Revíva continued to play music locally with heart, soul and most importantly LOVE.
