Loyd Vandergriff is
Loyd Vandergriff is "The Human", of The Human Project. He was born in the south in Columbus, GA, moved to Birmingham, then to Montgomery, Alabama. At age 13, he moved to Los Angeles, CA., but just that little time in the south had a big influence on his musical roots. At age 14 he moved to a sleepy little agricultural town in the Central Valley of California by the name of Corcoran where he went to High School. During this time he played in rock bands all 4 years of high school. The most notible were the Anonymous Five where they cut a 45 in 1967, Trans Love Airway 1968, and Black Earth, 1969. All these bands were exceptional for high school kids. they played every weekend somewhere. Upon graduation in 1969, Loyd was off to college while the rest of the guys kept on. This was frustrating, but he got his degree from San Diego State in 1974 and a teaching credential from Fresno State in 1975. He then became a high school teacher for 19 years at Corcoran High school. He did not play or pick up a guitar for over 35 years. In 2004 he met some friends and starting playing in a little jam band in Visalia, CA. He best describes his efforts at this time as "pathetic." His chops started to return and he bought a Boss Digital Recorder and started writing for fun. He wrote Workin Too Hard, Ridin This Train and Jimmy's Juke Joint right away...he didn't think they were very good, but he just kept at it. Finally he got some friends together and they recorded "The Real Stuff" In 2006. All of these tracks were originally written on that little Boss recorder. The song Standing in The Shadows put him on the map somewhat. The CD started selling in Switzerland, and was purchased across the country. Because of this CD, Stanford University contacted him about playing for the pre game party for their football game for the 2006 season. In 2008, he released Human Project II Humanized. 10 more original Human Project tracks. This was sent to Sterling Sound in NYC and mastered by Robert Fallone. This is his most polished effort and he considers this his best work. In 2010, he released Best of The Human Project. This CD took the best tracks from The Real Stuff and Human Project II. Plus he put 4 new Tracks on it. This is a great CD if you want to get some good Human Project all on one disc. In 2011, he released "Last Train Out." This was his first completely new CD in 3 years. In April of 2014, he released his 5th CD, "Human's Last Stand." He currently Lives in Clovis/Fresno California. He performs on live on rare occasions. His music is original and unique. It comes from the many life experiences he has gone through. So take the time to listen to some of the Human project. It took time to get all of it done..and it is worth the listen.
From Baton Rouge, Louisiana, Jonathon “Boogie” Long was born with the blues coursing through his veins. Brought up in a Southern Baptist community, he first picked up the guitar at the age of six, teaching himself old gospel songs. Years later, a teenage Long found himself playing weekly gigs at blues clubs and events around town. At fourteen, he left school to lay down his roots touring with local legends Henry Turner Jr. & Flavor from 2003 to 2005. Additionally, he has toured with Chris Duarte, Kenny Wayne and Tyree Neal on the Chitlin’ Circuit. Boogie has shared the stage with standout musicians such as Warren Haynes and Govt Mule, Dr. John, Rockin’ Dopsie, Monte Montgomery, Ellis Hall, Kenny Neal, Larry Garner, Henry Gray, Lil Ray Neal, and Lou Marini of the Blues Brothers Band.

In 2011, Boogie Long was crowned Guitar Center’s “King of the Blues” from a field of over 4,000 contestants, in the competition for #1 Unsigned Blues Guitarist in America. Soon after, Boogie was sought out to film 2013’s “Boogie Blues Magic,” an instructional three-DVD set on which he shares his original tricks for learning fundamental blues styles (www.boogiebluesmagic.com). On another recent project, Boogie co-starred in the independent film, “We Be Kings,” a fictional story about an elderly couple that owns a juke joint in the Mississippi Delta.

Boogie currently fronts his own blues/soul trio, The Blues Revolution. His soul-stomping vocals and monster guitar shredding, paired with bluesy songwriting chops make his powerhouse performances a “must see.” In April 2013, Boogie was tapped by B.B. King to support his four week tour. Also, he was given a prime slot at the New Orleans Jazz Fest Blues Stage! Quickly ascending from Baton Rouge to the main stage, Boogie Long is on track with his lifetime goal of championing blues music and its roots. His debut record was released in April of 2013.

Was born and raised in Fort Wayne, Indiana in a household that where my father listened to The Ventures while my mother listened to Waylon Jennings. Naturally I gravitated to KISS and Heavy Metal just to irritate them. In college I started opening my mind to other types of music, and started listening to more alternative. I still listen to everything from Queensryche to Beethoven, and most everything in between.

I have been playing off and on for over 20 years, not really doing anything serious. I finally got a major kick in the ass from some friends who pressed me to start recording an album. To be honest, sometimes it is hard to know when your friends say that you have decent stuff how much of that is your friend talking as opposed to someone who is being seriously objective. I finally heard enough positive comments to believe that there might be some merit in trying to do something, so I am recording a CD presently.

My current musical output is more folk/country-rock/rock oriented, but I have been experimenting with other instrumentation and synthesizers to break out of any classification that anyone can put on me. Good music is good music, regardless of the label that people want to put on it.

Peace to all!

Laurie Gordon (vocals, keyboards, guitars, bass, toys), the daughter of Hungarian immigrants, and Krassy Halatchev (bass, vocals, guitars. drums, knobs), born and raised in Communist Bulgaria. Within three months of their meeting, Krassy was being deported and Laurie had "no choice" but to save the band. What started out as a "green-card marriage" blossomed from desperate measures into true love.
Eddie Biljan and Jamie Ferrigan entered into the world of Metal in 1997. They became one of BCs newest metal/hard rock groups catching the eye of Seattle producer Jack Endino. 
In 1998 they recorded their debut CD Prizefighter and landed a back up spot playing with Testament in late 1999. After playing in and around the local music scene and taking the band as far as they could, they achieved two song placements in film soundtracks. 
One of their songs Grunts featured in the international film Christinas House and another song Slaves by Nature on indie film The Falling. Creative changes and the bands direction found Jamie leaving to take a break. January 2000 the band went back into the studio with Jack Endino and produced 7 new tracks with vocalist Steve Tru which updated the original indie record and became the newly licensed The Prizefighter. They signed a Licensing and Distribution deal in 2000 with label Music Avenue ROKAROLA RECORDS and toured for three months in Europe. After finishing the tour the band played one last show at New Music West and the following year participated in the New Music West producers workshop with Jack Endino then broke up soon after. In late 2006 Jamie and Eddie crossed paths not knowing they worked straight across from each other. They started Biljanaires (pronounced Billionaires) in 2007 as a collective of music and ideas they had between them and to write and record new songs. As with all these things, that simple desire has grown into something bigger.

Biljanaires first CD under their new band name has yet to be released, they are currently finishing their 7 song EP. However, a single, Seven Hills has been released. It is about a place somewhere back East in Canada where Jamie visited and based the story and lyrics on. It is about moving to Vancouver and adjusting to life in a new city. Many of the songs on this CD will be based around this premise. Listening to this song, it seems that the guitar has a voice of its own. Vocals and harmonies are beautiful, reminiscent of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young. They have truly authentic vocal arrangements and the blend of acoustic and electric are just a few things that make this group stand out. They are a great Progressive Rock Band that is very memorable, and sustainable in this industry. This is the kind of group that will be on top of the charts for decades to come.

The band plans on hitting the studio again this summer and start working on the follow up to Sex With A Dragon.

Straight out of Chicago, Mississippi Heat has been performing and recording pure vintage blues for more than two decades.

It all began one night at a 1991 gig at the now-closed Cafe Lura in Chicago, where guitarist and singer Jon McDonald invited Pierre Lacocque to join him onstage. Jon had hired drummer and vocalist Robert Covington (with Sunnyland Slim at the time) and bassist Bob Stroger (also with Sunnyland Slim and with Jimmy Rogers).

It went so well that the three musicians decided to form Mississippi Heat. His brother Michel–also in attendance that night–volunteered to become the band’s manager.

Since then, the band’s current and former members have released a total of 11 albums, touring North America, South America and Europe. Throughout it all, the band’s always stuck to its motto: “Traditional blues with a unique sound.”

Mississippi Heat’s unique sound has its roots in the diverse upbringing of Pierre Lacocque, born in Israel to a Christian Belgian family and raised in Europe.
