PLAYBOY MANBABY
PLAYBOY MANBABY
Playboy Manbaby is a 6 piece punk band from Phoenix, AZ. The band consists of Robbie Pfeffer (vocals), Chris Hudson (bass), TJ Friga (guitar), David Cosme (trumpet), Chad Dennis (drums), and Austin Rickert (sax).

“Even if you’re a Sunday-morning blues lawyer who only appreciates “serious music,” there’s no denying that Playboy Manbaby has been playing long enough to form a bona fide musical chemistry—one that would fit well onstage supporting (or blowing away) the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion. The tune boasts a rhythm section that can effortlessly power through stop-start arrangements. Over this, the versatile guitar work of TJ Friga switches from heavily reverberated spastic freak-outs to melodic arpeggios in the breakdown—a bridge that also includes a short-but-sweet trumpet solo from David Cosme. Go ahead and check out Playboy Manbaby before Hugh Hefner’s lawyers make them change their name.”– Eric Shea
NO PARENTS
NO PARENTS
More than a few rumors have been circling about the members of Los Angeles punk band ‘No Parents’. Among them:

Frontman Zoë Reign is the only living member of the long extinct human subspecies, homo erectus. His cave-tatted and zaftig body was found perfectly preserved within a gigantic slab of dank resin, excavated from a North Hollywood backyard by a pair of teenaged twins, whom, in the throes of a Blue Dream-edible-induced bad trip, had become convinced that the ghost of G.G. Allin would haunt their local sesh spot were they not to unearth a mysterious object from behind their uncle’s ranch house.
Bassist Killian LeDuke is both blessed and cursed by his possession of a rare Poon-Slayer’s Statuette, which in appearance is not far off from the Venus of {look up}, but unlike that ancient artifact, is said to faintly emit the chorus of the Stooges’ “T.V. Eye”, a tune which grows louder if the object comes within the presence of a particularly bodacious babe. Accounts conflict on the actual psychophysical effects of the totem– make your own call if you ever come within 5-10 feet of Mr. LeDuke.
Guitarist Ryan McGuffin learned how to play his scintillating riffs from a group of hyperintelligent Fender-wielding crustaceans. One day while surfing Leo Carrillo during a super gnarly swell, he was pulled under (after getting way too pitted in a tube of opaque Pacific trash-water.) Rendered unconscious by a critical case of board-to-dome, he would have certainly perished beneath the waves had he not been furnished with scuba gear by the aforementioned rock lobsters. Somewhere along the line, the rumor goes, they taught him how to shred, but the details here are fuzzy, as it remains unclear how these clawed creatures could pluck a guitar string without snapping it, not to mention how an amp could function underwater.
Monty, the drummer, is an alien.

Interesting as these rumors may be, their veracity is far beside the point. No Parents play rock and roll music and they play it well. Oh fuck yes they do.

AUNT B
AUNT B
Aunt B came together after Megan and Shane got married at the Stax Museum of Soul in Memphis. When they got back they started writing tons of inspired songs from their love of soul, gospel and R&B. Megan has been singing country, punk and ska her whole life and perfected her craft in Charleston working with many of the musicians that lived through the era of classic country and soul. Shane was in punk and ska bands and toured in the bands Helva, US Crush, Ska Daddyz, Butt Trumpet and many more...playing Warped Tours and tons of shows with his punk rock idles. Chad and Tre were in the band Safehouse and developed a strong following in Phoenix and the US. Chad has also played in Fivespeed and has toured playing drums with AZ reggae punkers Authority Zero! Benjamin grew up in a musical family playing churches and is part of the School of Rock touring outfit the All Stars. Autumn and Michelle love music, singing and helps to keep the flow of the show going.
