Small Change Romeos - "Dandelion"

After a 5 year hiatus the members of long time San Francisco Rock Band Small Change Romeos are gearing up to release their 4th studio album and follow it up with a number of Northern California shows this summer.
The album, entitled ‘Mystery Sings’ is a solid collection of material from sessions that span several years in the studio. It is arguably their most provocative and strongest record to date with songs that cover a broad range of styles from Roots Rock to Blues to Alternative.
Official CD Release Show to take place Fri. 6/24 at Neck of the Woods 406 Clement St. San Francisco, CA
The Small Change Romeos is a prolific and exciting musical outfit led by Singer Songwriters Chris James and Mike Ruy. A rhythm section tour du force backs them with Matt Berg on drums, and AJ Leighton on bass. Keyboardist, and upcoming artist in own right John Patterson, fills out the band’s eclectic sound.

The Romeos have been developing their craft for several years, both on stage and in the studio, creating a musical synergy between them that is undeniable. Being songwriters first, rock n’ rollers second, their multi-layered, contagious songs rally up audiences to follow them through emotionally stirred performances.

"SCR is a real rock band. They bring to mind an edgy, dynamic and classic sound that is missing in so much of today’s music. Great songwriting and awesome onstage performance and energy...” Working with them both on the stage and in the studio has always been a pleasure and an incredible experience..." -Phil Bennett, Starship


MORE INFO: In 2007 through 2009 their album “Fool’s Gold” attracted the attention of the majors and the band was able to secure a music placement contract with Gotham Records out of NYC. The record featured a host of talented musical guests including: Dave Rude (Tesla), J Bowman of (Spearhead) and Phil Bennett (Starship).

Piqued Jacks rock n roll #Flyah

Piqued Jacks describe their sound in their own words: “being able to speak without impediment; having sex in the most intense way possible; expressing ourselves 100%”. You have to hear it to experience it for yourself. Piqued Jacks are brave souls. Rising from a small village in Italy, they have methodically made their way from obscurity to Austin, the heart of the indie music scene, performing 2 showcases at SXSW 2013. Their powerful alliance and headstrong vision has resulted in rapid success and the positive flow of their career indicates a confident band gaining serious momentum. Back in 2006, the Piqued Jacks were anything but serious. They causally acquired the band name after someone drops a bass during rehearsal. The damaged jack resembled an erect penis and the boys felt the sexual allusion suited their sound.
