The Bellrays, The Atom Age, Smokers

If music is food for the soul, then The BellRays are Thanksgiving. At a BellRays show they know how to cook. Lisa Kekaula and Bob Vennum dish up plate after plate, hot and ready to eat. Each song gives you flavors that both taste good going down and make you wonder what's in it. Yes, the ingredients are important, blues, punk, rock, R&B...But even the best ingredients, used too much or too little, can ruin the experience and tire out the senses. The BellRays have been perfecting this recipe for years now and may not win awards but if you are in earshot no one leaves hungry. The BellRays give you not only what you crave, but what you need in every bite.
The Atom Age find their inspiration from the dust covered collections of unhinged 60’s punk and R&B, whose crazed energy was once misconceived as a better fit for your trashcan than for your turntable. While taking many of their cues from these primitive pilgrims of punk, The Atom Age still strive to lay down their own modernized take on the sound. The band’s new record, Hot Shame, was co-produced by Blag Dahlia of the Dwarves, and channels a wide range of influences from bands like The Sonics, Link Wray and the Murder City Devils.
