Biscuit Miller has done it again! Following on the success of “Wishbone” comes his 4th Studio Album, “Chicken Grease”. This time around Biscuit has teamed up with Producer Ben Elliot, who has recorded, mixed and produced artists for over 25 years. Ben is known for his expertise in diverse musical genres, having recorded classic artists such as Eric Clapton and Keith Richards, and specializes in the Blues genre. This has turned out to be a great collaboration for Biscuit Miller’s 2019 release of “Chicken Grease”!
Biscuit and his band, The Mix, have been touring extensively ever since winning his first BMA in 2012, recording and releasing “Wishbone” in 2016, and winning a second BMA in 2017. The Mix is a sometimes-changing cast of players, but bassist and front man Biscuit Miller is consistently known for his high energy shows and blazing million-dollar smile. He is a born entertainer and is at home on the stage where he connects with his audience through a fun and funky approach to the blues.
Flynnville Train is an irresistible, powerful, hard driving combination of Rock, Southern rock and country, with heart-stopping guitar riffs and nostalgic vocals as gritty as a long dirt road. From start to finish, their unique sound captivates the listener, whether live or on CD and their sound and style has no boundaries.
Labeled by their fans as "Americas' band," Flynnville Train's music spans multiple genres and their electrifying live show hooks fans of all ages. They are as comfortable sharing the stage with superstars like Toby Keith, Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert, Dierks Bentley, as they are with acts such as Iron Butterfly, Molly Hatchett and the Marshall Tucker Band. It is seldom that such a unique and powerful live sound can be captured in the studio from three musicians and a lead singer, but with a band as awesome and talented as this, they proved it was possible. In the studio, they record most songs "live" like the 60's and early 70's, hence the "real" sound that they create.
Toby Keith: "When I saw them live, they were more than I could have expected and I signed them on the spot." Such was his description of Flynnville Train, who signed to his management team as well as his Show Dog label. The deal resulted in two charted singles on the Billboard chart and a number 22 spot on the Heatseeker Billboard Charts before they amicably parted ways with Show Dog.
Stacy Mitchhart’s musical journey began in his native Cincinnati, Ohio, in a home where jazz guitar masters like Wes Montgomery and Johnny Smith were played on the stereo. Therefore it was natural that he gravitated to the six-string. As a child he saw the outrageous Little Richard on a TV show and was captivated by his showmanship. Little Richard looked and acted differently than anybody he had ever been exposed to. Today, Mitchhart has created his own brand of showmanship that brings audiences back again and again.
“I heard Springsteen, Zeppelin and Pink Floyd, but that stuff never moved me,” he recounts. “When I saw Bobby ‘Blue’ Bland and B.B. King, I knew what I wanted to do. Since then, my playing’s just gotten more focused and aggressive with time.” Another serious inspiration was Cincinnati guitarist and singer Frank Hedges, a musical preacher whose sons were also in Mitchhart’s first band. “He played guitar in a strange, almost drum like style, which taught me to concentrate on the groove.”
1988 performs the danceable and head banging "big hair" hits of the 80's. While other groups have chosen to present themselves in a clown-like fashion, 1988 has stayed true to its 80's roots by paying respectful tribute to bands like Bon Jovi, Def Leppard, Poison, Motley Crue, Guns-N-Roses, and even Journey. 1988 recreates a show one might have seen on Hollywood's Sunset Strip at the height of the 80's Metal era.
1988 focuses on pleasing the crowd by playing danceable material without straying too far from the 80's Hard Rock theme. Of course, the 80's were known for their "monster ballads", and there is no shortage of them at a 1988 show. The band plays several of the biggest ones every night. Not to ignore the aficionado, 1988 also throws in the head banging classics by Quiet Riot, Twisted Sister, Europe, Scorpions, and others.
An opportunity to see 1988 is not to be missed. Young or old, if you want to experience the closest thing to what it was like in the 80's...this is it!
