6'10 (rootsyTobin from Flatfoot56) & Justin St. Thomas
Friday, 02/13/2015



6'10. This Chicago based group is the acoustic project of Tobin Bawinkel, who is the lead singer of Flatfoot 56. Their first full length album, "The Humble Beginnings of a Roving Soul" came out Dec. 2014.

6’10 is the folk/bluegrass incarnation of Tobin Bawinkel, frontman for Celtic punk stalwarts Flatfoot 56. In comparison to the hectic sounds of his other outfit, this is a more subtle approach through heartfelt and emotional journeys against the backdrop acoustic instrumentation. Bawinkel is joined by bandmates Josh Robieson, (Mandolin, Ukulele) Mike Pettus (Ukulele Bass), and Keith Perez.

Those who have grown to love Bawinkel’s raw punk aesthetic and candor will find much to cling to in this new endeavor.  “There is nothing as vulnerable as a punk lead singer having to give up his distortion and volume to be laid bare in front of a crowd with just his wit and raw guitar playing. I wanted to revisit sounds from my childhood and return to simpler culture, one without pretension.  The album has an overall theme of travel and journeying. Since I pretty much have lived the majority of my life on the road, this topic has a lot of symbolism for me.”



Also: JUSTIN ST. THOMAS:  serves up a sincere message within a smooth fresh groove blending elements of soul, r&b, folk, pop, rock, and reggae from the past few decades.

SHONLOCK & tba
Friday, 03/13/2015



After nearly twelve years' experience on the music scene, the work of hip-hop/R&B artist Shonlock is  gaining mainstream traction, and A Night to Remember looks to be his distinguishing induction into TobyMac's Diverse City Band has no doubt contributed to his recent success, but in no way is an undeserved handout. A Night to Remember easily crosses the threshold between good and great, landing somewhere near exceptional territory.
A Night to Remember is a magnificently tasteful project, encompassing all of the elements that Shonlock has come to represent. The 10-track album can feel a little short, but is assertively complete. This is some of Shonlock's best work, and A Night to Remember may be his greatest step forward.

BONE HAMPTON COMEDY

The term “crossover” is seldom used of comedians, yet the word is the perfect descriptor for “Bone” Hampton, one of redemptive comedy’s most well traveled and in-demand funnymen. Bone’s comedic smarts know no bounds. One day he can be seen hosting and performing at 10,000 seat music festival, the next working the crowd at a comedy club or he’s doing his thing at a church gig, and the following he’s making a splash on a hit sitcom. 

Such is evidenced in his diverse resume, including “All About Steve” with Sandra Bullock & Bradley Cooper, NBC’s My Name is Earl, ABC’s Less Than Perfect, and reoccurring appearances on ABC’s Daytime talk show The View, on TBN’s “Praise the Lord,” LeCrae’s “Higher Learning Tour” and on the “Thou Shalt Laugh 2 and 5 projects with Tim Conway and Chonda Pierce.
