The Howling Bones is rock n roll #Flyah


Them Howling Bones New Album Cover- EP Release in November!  
Them Howling Bones
Them Howling Bones are born rock stars with real musical muscle, the kind that are in all too short supply in today’s music scene. They were so destined to find each other and play together, that when they played their first gig, they didn't even realize it was their first gig -- it was that spontaneous.
They hopped on stage at a Los Angeles location that remains undisclosed to this day, to those outside the band’s inner circle -- rock & roll traditionalists that they are, the band insists you had to be there. They dove headfirst into a rendition of the Doors’ “Roadhouse Blues” in a completely impromptu jam session. According to bassist Armando, they “just kept on the blues feel the whole night.”
And though the gig is over, the blues feel certainly is not. Guitarist Mitch cites bluesmen of days gone by -- Albert King, Freddie King, Eric Clapton, Jimmy Page, Paul Butterfield, Duane Allman -- as major influences in his (and the band’s) sound. Mitch Micoley has traveled all the way to LA from the Midwest -- where he claims “there isn’t much going on” -- in search of a more active scene and like-minded band mates who share his goals for “us to move people, write great songs, make the audience dance and go crazy, and know our lyrics and songs.”
Vocalist Pedro Torres is certainly on the same page: “Every night is the best rock & roll night. Broke, finding ways to get by. Being in the streets, meeting people, drinking, playing, getting into trouble and learning to get away with it! Every day just drenched in a little whiskey!” For Armando, answering which rock & roll night is the best ever is “not even fair. This train is moving fast and to remember every landmark would be blurry.”
Ironically, the quietest member is Collin Kleinman, the drummer, yet he provides the band with its aura of mystery. Ask him where he’s from and he’ll likely reply, “The beach.” His goals for Them Howling Bones? “Get pitted, get slotted, then shacked, and spit right out of the barrel. Chya.”
Armando Lopez Jr. is a little more thoughtful about the prospect of the band’s bright future: “To be able to connect with a total stranger with music as a universal language is honestly beautiful. The energy of these ever-building crowds would inspire anyone with a working ticker.”
The current EPK release shows the fast musical talent for songwriting and talent.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
