The Dyes
The Dyes
Chicago-based trio, The Dyes, infuse 60s inspired garage-rock with infectious 50s rockabilly undertones to create a punchy and melodic, yet raw rock n' roll sound. By digging up the roots of influences such as: Hank Williams, The Cramps, Wanda Jackson, and The Flat Duo Jets, this female-fronted trio is sure to catch the ears of a wide-spectrum of music lovers as they toss hints of punk, surf, blues, and country into the mix, and stir it up with their own unique twist.
Rumble Seat Riot
Rumble Seat Riot
Two and a half years ago, Larry Kaster returned from a stint in Nashville to his native Iowa, ready to start a band. He had few parameters for his vision, save for a stipulation that they play rock and roll; and so he beat down the barstools of Des Moines’ East side in the same manner Johnny Cash went door to door, once upon a long time ago, peddling wares. It wasn’t long before he met Gene Senn, a mechanic with dust on his boots who enjoys cheap bear and biker bars, and the project now known as Rumble Seat Riot was born.

The “rumble seat” is an attachment to pre-WWII automobiles, that usually hinged out from the rear deck and over the rear tires. Thus, the person riding there was left unprotected from the elements, and experienced every shock of rubber on bumps in the road. But as the danger zone is always an apt place to party – such is the name apt for the band, who consider their themes to be: hot rods, lost women, and cheap beer.

Frontman Gene Senn is quite the crooner, and a hot rod aficionado who had a repertoire of 3 songs written in his garage during breaks buffing the ’29 Ford, when bassist Larry Kaster met him. Now they are a tightknit group of three – recently ruinited with their original drummer, Butchie Spector, of former Slipknot fame. They have also gathered quite the following of tattooed, pin-up styled men and women of the rockabilly persuasion, though they maintain that they write with strictly rock and roll in mind.

Rumble Seat Riot’s first album, “Locked, Cocked, and Ready to Roll” was recently released and a short Midwestern tour followed. This came on the heels of a gig opening for Reverend Horton Heat, and a video shoot in an old airplane hangar. They pack the house (and the dance floor) at nearly every gig, sending rumbling rock vibrations through the floorboards underneath the rhythms of Gene’s mean green guitar and Larry’s badass bass lines. At once fun, fearless, and feisty, with brief forays into heartache – these three should definitely be on the radar of anyone who considers themselves a fan of rock and roll, and hasn’t forgotten its beginnings.
The Heavies

The rock bands call us a surf band, the surf bands call us a rock band.....we are the HEAVIES!!!

BIG drums-FAT bass-STINGING guitars...check us out and be overcome by a tsunami of sound! Christmas 1999: Jason and I were talking about music and got on the subject of surf-instro and both expressed interest in playing it. Three months later we started getting together at his place and learned about 15-20 songs with me playing rhythm and him on lead. We looked for about 18 months for a drummer and bass player with no luck. Jay knew Jim from some job sites they had worked at and asked him to play drums with us. The 3 of us started practicing regularly in the spring of '02 in Jim's parents' garage while we kept looking for a bass player. Jim's Dad thought the stuff we were playing sounded great and started learning the bass lines. We played our first "show" labor day weekend 2002 at a 3-band birthday party as a 4-piece. Two months later, his dad passed the bass duties on to Jim's brother, who moved to California and soon the revolving door started. After 4 years and 7 different bass players we decided to become a 3 piece and Jay and I switch between bass and guitar during sets.
