Video: STAND for guitarist Geo and Race No More...

Chicago is a treasure of a city. The cold winters, hot summers, tough streets and proud blue color work ethic deliver us a fierce, no jive, “show us what ya got” kind of town. The meek can’t survive there only the truly badass do and they always carry a deep soulfulness in their hearts. And if they ever leave, the artful gifted hearts they bring are one of Chicago’s greatest exports.

Geo, aka Jorge Evans, is one of those badass exports. A killer guitarist whose hands carry deep raw groove and, equally, the heaviest thunder of his crushing Bogner Ecstasy and Uberschall amps. A rare combination for sure but he pulls it off with ease. Since the earliest days Reinhold Bogner and Geo have been friends and has been using Bogners as part of his tone arsenal ever since.

Music SCREAMS! louder than words and Geo’s got something to say. His new project RNM - “Race No More” is big, bold and demands attention. Music carries emotions and at it’s best carries a deeper more resonant message. RNM’s first single and video “STAND” deserves such attention and its message should be heard and shared. Dig it and STAND!

Eric Steckel loves his Ecstasy amp!

Guitarist Eric Steckel is a rare breed. Just a few years ago he was a teenage blues-rock prodigy ripping up a storm along the east coast. Unfortunately many of these young prodigies suffer the same fate in that they never evolve musically or develop a unique voice. Eventually disappearing into the cluttered graveyard of the so-called “gifted.”

Not Eric, he never exited onto that dead-end road. But what he did do was push himself and kept pushing to learn more about all kinds of music, discovering his voice plus becoming an accomplished Hammond B3 organ player. Now in his early 20’s, Eric has released several solo CDs and is annually touring Europe  ripping up festival stages. Eric is a good cat, extremely talented, dedicated to his music and just getting started - and that’s a fierce combination. Eric Steckel is a rare breed indeed and you can discover more about him on his site here.

Eric uses and loves his Ecstasy Amp and here's what he had to say about it:

"Bogner Amps have my back at every show. I never have to think about it. Plug in, flip the switch, and bam! I'm in tone heaven. And did I mention they look freakin' beautiful on stage too? The Ecstasy Blue Channel IS my sound." Eric Steckel

Guitarist Jamie Kime's new CD release - ALLEYS

Guitarist Jamie Kime is one of Los Angeles’s best kept secrets. Though he has worked with Jewel, Michelle Branch, the L.A. Philharmonic and won a Grammy for his work with Zappa Plays Zappa, Jamie still keeps a low profile. And that’s often the case with hard working dedicated musicians. They only come up briefly for air and water and then dive right back down into the quiet depths of their heart…creating.

And that inward creative journey has delivered, big time, with Jamie’s solo release “Alleys”. Featuring 10 instrumental songs all driven by Jamie’s incredible incendiary playing that’s equally finesse and fire. Pulsating and alive, Alleys takes you through unexpected twists and turns and unique sonic vistas you are thrilled to arrive at. Alley’s also features Mike Keneally on bass, Cliff Almond on drums, and was mixed by veteran engineer Dave Eugene Jenkins.

So that blip flying 1000 mph onto your musical radar is no UFO and is a secret no more. It’s Jamie Kime bursting onto the musical landscape lighting up the sky as he takes you through the “Alleys” of his soul.

Check out Alleys on CdBaby right here and then find out more about Jamie on his website here.

Shane Theriot is KILLING with his Blue pedal!

Both blistering and eclectic, groove monster Shane Theriot loves his Bogner Blue pedal. Shane is currently the Musical Director for Hall & Oates, is also a solo artist, and has worked with a huge range of critically acclaimed artists including: The Neville Brothers, Dr. John, Boz Scaggs, Madeleine Peyroux and many, many others. Be sure to watch him on Pallidia's Live From Daryl's House tv show. Dig into Shane's music and more on his site here.

Here's what Shane had to say about his Bogner Blue pedal: "Plugging into the Ecstasy "Blue" pedal instantly and dramatically expanded my tonal and EQ palette. It's like having another powerful amplifier in your arsenal of sounds all hidden in a nice blue box."

Carlos Garcia loves his Bogner amp!

Fantastic UK guitarist Carlos Garcia loves his Bogner Goldfinger amp and has been using one on tour and in the studio. Find out more about Carlos and his music here.

Masterminds Reinhold Bogner and Mr. Rupert Neve have teamed up to produce superb audio-effects pedals that serve up rich, buttery tones, ultra-dynamic response and a stunning three-dimensional sound quality inspired by the classic mixing consoles of the 1960's.

This new line of pedals feature transformers designed by Rupert Neve Designs. Each transformer is unique and specifically designed to perfectly pair with the 100% analog audio circuit of each model.

The Studio Series gives you the same sonic bliss featured with a Bubinga exotic hardwood top panel, reminiscent of the vintage mixing consoles from the 60's. Each panel is formed, sanded, layered and finished by hand.

Tom Bukovac on tour with Trigger Hippy supporting their new debut release

Guitarist Tom Bukovac digs his Bogner amps. And for many years, plus many hit records, they’ve been part of his sonic arsenal. Here’s what he has to say about that:

"Bogner amps sound f**king killer, it's as simple as that. Reinhold always somehow manages to make something unique in a vast sea of imitators. Creative and well built amps that always deliver...sounds good to me"

tom bukovac

Check him out with his new band Trigger Hippy and feel the greasy soulfulness coming out of the jams on their brand new release.

Also, Trigger Hippy hits the west coast for a run of tour dates. Truly one of the BEST bands out there today and featuring a stellar lineup of musicians: guitarist & Nashville session man Tom Bukovac, singer Joan Osborne, Black Crowes bassist Nick Govrik and drummer Steve Gorman, plus singer, guitarist and keyboards Jackie Greene. Discover their music and tour dates at their site here.

Trigger Hippy covers a lot of ground on its self-titled debut album. Cruise through the 11 tracks from this well-credentialed Nashville quintet and you’ll hear propulsive rock, gritty blues, heart-searing soul, sinewy grooves, sublime vocal harmonies and a rich, earthy sensibility steeped in Americana roots. What to call it? Drummer and co-founder Steve Gorman favors “a rock band that can jam.”

These musicians can certainly do that. Gorman, of course, also co-founded The Black Crowes more than 25 years ago; and is considered one of the best rock drummers of his generation, playing not only with the Crowes, but also with Jimmy Page, and Stereophonics, among others. Singer Joan Osborne has released seven albums since her triple-platinum 1995 debut Relish and its Top 5 hit “One of Us;” she’s also collaborated with The Dead, Phil Lesh & Friends, and Motown’s Funk Brothers, with a featured role in the film Standing In The Shadows of Motown. Singer-guitarist-keyboardist Jackie Greene, who performed with The Black Crowes during the band’s 2013 tour, has seven solo albums to his credit and has logged time in Phil Lesh & Friends, among others. Tom Bukovac is a first-call Nashville cat who won five consecutive MusicRow Session Guitarist of the Year awards, while bassist Nick Govrik performed in his former band Highwater and played more recently with singer Mike Farris.

“Sure, you can see this as a ‘player’s band,’ but it really is a band, in the true sense of that word,” explains Gorman. “We don’t see this simply as a project. It’s vital that Trigger Hippy be a real communal effort that feels good to all of us.”

Osborne adds, “Steve is not a person who thinks small. He kind of said, ‘Well, who would I get if I could get everybody I wanted?’ and went for it. We all have very complementary strengths.”

Those strengths are on full display throughout the debut album, Trigger Hippy, released by Rounder Records. The tunes seamlessly blend together the Trigger Hippy members’ individual sounds and both personal and collective influences, stirring clearly defined touchstones into one of those musical stews that’s both timeless and right on time. “Rise Up Singing,” the lead track and first single, kicks things off with the hand-clapping joy of a revival tent meeting, while “Turpentine,” “Tennessee Mud,” “Pocahontas,” and “Nothing New” crank with fiery authority to complement the slinky blues flavor of “Cave Hill Cemetery” and the expansive journey of “Dry County.” “Heartache on the Line” and “Ain’t Persuaded Yet” nod towards the Memphis end of the soul spectrum, while Govrik closes the set with the aching, Band-esque paean “Adelaide.”
