Mike Dillon Band
Mike Dillon Band
Mike Dillon (b. 1965, American) is one of the most dynamic and multifaceted percussionists in the country, best known for his unforgettable live performances, unorthodox percussion rig and distinct original sound. After emerging in late 1980's as the first to lead a rock/funk band as a vocalist and vibraphone player, contributing to its evolution by his use of effects, Dillon has become well-known for producing genre-bending music that transcends categorization. Over the last 27 years, his creative song-writing and the repertoire of artists he has worked with - - on tour, stage or in the studio - - reveal his eclectic musical inspiration and skillful versatility. Artists such as: Les Claypool, Ani DiFranco, Polyphonic Spree, Brave Combo, Sex Mob, Galactic, Secret Chief's 3, Karl Denson, Steven Bernstein, Charlie Hunter, James Singleton, George Porter Jr., Johnny Vidocavich and Bob Schneider. His individual projects include: Critter's Buggin', Garage A Trois, Billy Goat, Mike Dillon's Go-Go Jungle, Hairy Apes BMX, Malachy Papers, the Dead Kenny G's, who regularly open for Primus, and his latest, The Mike Dillon Band.

As a touring musician and prolific song-writer, Mike Dillon has continuously pushed his distinct sound in new and inventive directions. On stage, Dillon is a powerful force, with boundless energy that hails a punk rock/hardcore edge and the seamless ability to play multiple percussive instruments at once. For nearly three decades, fans have been draw to Dillon's organic style, creative musicianship and the way his music never fails to stir the crowd into a big dance party from start to finish. After taking a brief hiatus from solo projects, Dillon is back at the helm with his latest quartet, The Mike Dillon Band, which delivers a cache of his new songs, infuses fresh life into his classics, and features Mike Dillon (vibraphone, percussion, lead vocals), Adam Gertner (drums), Cliff Hines (guitar, bass and keyboards) and Carly Meyers (trombone, vocals), whose raw talent, enthusiasm and infectious dance moves have created quite a stir among music goers in the past year.
Bum Lucky
Mike Richardson (Vocals and Guitar), Alex Rivera (Guitar), Jamey Gleaves (Bass Guitar), Juan Galvan (Keyboards), Patrick Snowden (Drums)and Christiegirl(Percussion and Backup Vocals) make up the Dallas Dub-Reggae/Rock band known as Bum Lucky. Pieced together in late 2010 thru today, this six piece band has made a name for themselves in the Texas Dub-Reggae/Rock music scene as one of the most sought after live acts in the DFW area. After leaving roots in Tempe, AZ where the original member of Bum Lucky began their music career, soon made new connections with one another in the Dallas area and quickly discovered that they shared a deep passion for peace, love, unity, and music. It is this style of family that allowed for the development of their unique sound that has been described by many areas of media as an upbeat fusion of Dub, Reggae, with a little Steppers, and that good old fashioned Rock and Roll. With major influences like Slightly Stoopid, The Movement, Sublime and Bob Marley. Bum Lucky aspires to make their own mark on the Reggae music industry like the many greats before them.
