The Expendables
The Expendables
The Expendables enjoyed a laid-back lifestyle growing up in Santa Cruz, CA; surfing,
skating, partying, and playing music were commonplace. Since 1997, The
Expendables have staked their claim in the California surf/rock genre by headlining
venues from coast to coast. Blending Reggae, Punk Rock, and 80s style dueling
guitar solos, The Expendables have made heads turn and floors shake for years.

The band consists of four longtime friends: Geoff Weers (Guitar and Vocals), Adam
Patterson (Drums and Vocals), Raul Bianchi (Lead Guitar) and Ryan DeMars (Bass).
The first seven years of their career was fueled with three full-length, completely
independent releases. No Time To Worry (2000), Open Container (2001), and
Gettin' Filthy (2004), would bring in a combined total of over 40,000 units sold with
no physical distribution and no record label.

While touring and supporting their album, Gettin' Filthy, The Expendables would
share the stage with Slightly Stoopid and catch the attention of founders and front
men Kyle McDonald and Miles Doughty. In 2007 Slightly Stoopid formed their own
independent label, Stoopid Records, and signed The Expendables for the label's first
non-Stoopid release, which was The Expendables self-titled. Released in
September 2007, the album would be accepted as an instant classic by fans and
received rave reviews from critics.

The band continued supporting the album with hundreds of shows over the next two
years, gaining fans around the world, and respect from the bands that influenced
them. The band would share the stage with bands like Slightly Stoopid, NoFX, Less
Than Jake, Pennywise and Pepper to name a few. At the end of 2009 and beginning
of 2010 the band would work on their next album Prove It produced by Paul Leary
(producer of Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, Supersuckers, as well as the guitar
player for Butthole Surfers) and El Hefe (guitar player for NoFX).

Prove It was released May 11th 2010 debuting at #158 on the Billboard Top 200,
#30 on Billboard's Independent charts, and #4 on Billboard's Heatseekers!
The album also pushed to #15 on iTunes Top 200 and #5 on iTunes Alternative
Charts, jumping The Expendables to a new level in their career. The band's new release
would include guest performances by C-Money, OG, and Dela of Slightly Stoopid
throughout the album. Jumping into the mix as well would be long time friend G. Love
on the ballad "Wells".

The Expendables have continued their tenacious touring schedule in 2011 and was a featured band on all dates of the massive yearly festival favorite, Warped Tour. Starting 2012 strong, The Expendables rang in the New Year with Slightly Stoopid at Hard Rock Live in Orlando, shortly followed after by their annual Winter Black Out Tour.

After numerous hours in studio, The Expendables prepare to release their 6th full-length studio album, "Gone Soft" set to come out this May. Highlighting the versatile and dynamic musicianship of the band, the album will be an all acoustic album, showcasing previous popular songs as mellow acoustic ballads. In support of the album, the Expendables will be joined by Unwritten Law on an acoustic/electric tour around Southern California giving fans the chance to experience the powerful and energetic performance that has made The Expendables such a unique band in it's genre while also introducing fans to a new, "softer" side to their music.

Thirteen years later and countless miles covered, The Expendables show no sign of slowing down.
Through the Roots
Through the Roots
THROUGH THE ROOTS, a high-energy San Diego, California-based group known for its easy-listening music with Cali-Reggae vibes and positive messages, sailed into 2014 with a fan-inspired new full-length album, a three-show stop with Rebelution, and the 2014 Winter West Coast Tour along with Tribal Seeds to start the New Year off with a bang.
The fast start to 2014 is only the beginning of what THROUGH THE ROOTS has in store for its thousands of loyal fans from across the United States and in Canada. The fast-rising band out of San Diego also has at least one nationwide tour and possibly two in the works as well as concentrating on bringing more new music to the popular genre. Through The Roots is currently working on next level music, and plans to leak it as early as Spring 2014.
THROUGH THE ROOTS highlighted a productive 2013 with its nine-song album, "Take You There," that debuted at No. 3 on the iTunes reggae top 20 chart in late July and received excellent reviews. TTR carried over that musical momentum into successful nationwide tours with lead groups Rebelution and Iration. TTR also played in the prestigious Cali Roots Festival and traveled to Guam for its first-ever trip overseas to spread its positive vibes.
During 2013, TTR played in over 100 shows from coast-to-coast -- including four shows in scenic Hawaii, and it plans to keep up the hectic schedule in 2014, attracting more fans and sharing the stage with many of the top bands in its reggae-rock genre.
THROUGH THE ROOTS closed 2013 with "Take You There" being nominated for the Reggaeville 2013 Album of the Year, with fans voting into January when the winner was to be announced at Reggaeville.com. It was a prestigious honor for TTR to be on the nominees' list that included some of the biggest names in reggae. "Take You There" which was released on July 30th, debuted at #3 on The iTunes reggae charts right behind Bob Marley, and Snoop Dogg. "Take You There" also Hot shot debuted at #5 on The Billboard Reggae Charts.
THROUGH THE ROOTS' uplifting music includes a tantalizing blend of reggae, rock, and pop mixed with a vast array of ear pleasing guitar, drums and keyboard/synth play to mesh with the band's catchy vocals, creating its unique sounds. TTR excels in live performances, allowing its young and older fans to truly experience the total musical package as the pumping crowd is wrapped into a high-energy, free-flowing show that leaves fans with a positive reaction.
In 2011, THROUGH THE ROOTS' first CD, "Here To Stay," quickly rose on the iTunes reggae Top 200 chart to No. 2 in the first week and remained amongst the best selling CDs as more and more TTR fans were turned on by the clever vibes and soothing mixture of the group's music. The popular CD also garnered air time on the West Coast and in Hawaii, adding to a six-song EP that THROUGH THE ROOTS put out in 2008, with both remaining in iTunes' top 50 selling reggae CDs for the year.
THROUGH THE ROOTS topped 2011 by being named The Pier's 2011 Newcomer of the Year. The online website covering the reggae/rock genre based its selection on fan voting across country.
THROUGH THE ROOTS came together as a band in 2008 and blended its unique sounds of reggae and rock music. TTR quickly captured music fans' attention all over the West Coast as the band rose in popularity and became a must-see show while sharing the stage the past six years with highly respected groups like Rebelution, Iration, The Green, Pepper, Passafire, Tribal Seeds, Natural Vibrations, Fortunate Youth, and Alborosie, in various venues across the United States.
THROUGH THE ROOTS is led by lead vocalist Evan Hawkins, one of the rising young stars in Cali-Reggae music, and a talented supporting cast in Taylor Boatwright (Drums, Vocals), Brady O'Rear (Keys), Scott Curtis (Lead Guitar, Vocals) and Corey Groove (Bass).
