Blackfoot Gypsies
Blackfoot Gypsies
Blackfoot Gypsies is Matthew Paige (vocals, guitar), Zack Murphy (drums), Dylan Whitlow (bass, vocals) and Ollie Dogg (harmonica). The band have shared bills with everyone from the Alabama Shakes and Trampled by Turtles to Futurebirds, The Ettes and The Carolina Chocolate Drops. East Nashvillian testifies that “…Blackfoot Gypsies’ live performances are inducing pure rock & roll highs in audiences…” While the Examiner adds “The Blackfoot Gypsies deliver a raw blues infused sound loaded with chunky guitar riffs, rowdy keyboards and wailing vocals.” AllMusic dubs the band’s material “garage rock, electric blues and Southern swagger.”
Johnny Conqueroo
Johnny Conqueroo
Johnny Conqueroo is a highly kinetic blues-rock trio from Lexington, KY. After releasing their first EP in 2015, the band drew the attention not only of local and regional audiences (selling out venue after venue), but also industry professionals. Currently partnering up with veteran producer Tom Zutaut (Guns N Roses, Motley Crue, Tesla, etc) and engineer David Barrick (Kentucky Headhunters, Black Stone Cherry, Vince Gill), a new record is in the works. Momentum has only continued to soar with their fanbase outgrowing venues and the reach of social media inspriring booking requests in new markets.

While 2016 is looking to be a watershed year for these dudes, it is important to look at the grassroots support and organic exposure from 2015, which pushed their EP towards the top of the regional charts in both air-play (WRFL College Radio) and record sales (Independently owned "CD-Central"), leading to a popular "WRFL-Live" performance on Thanksgiving eve. As word spread, and EPs changed hands, eventually even R & R Hall of Famer Billy Gibbon's took notice
