As we noted above this past radio show was in association with the Sync Summit, so it was loaded with some of today's top trend-setting artists who put on one helluva show. last week's performances spanned across The Mint's Main Room as well as the newly redesigned Mid-City Music Lounge located in the back of The Mint. Last week's performers included Grammy winning music supervisor, GARY CALAMAR who joined Hunnypot for his very first live show. Gary performed a brilliant set of tunes off his forthcoming debut album "You Are What You Listen To" due to drop on 10/14 through Atlantic Records. Kicking things off at The Mid-City Music Lounge was Barbados based rock quartet, THE LONGEST NIGHT who brought out a loud and blistering set of pop, rock tunes. DEBBIE REIFER, took to the Mid-City stage next followed by CARUSO. Rounding out the night at the Mid-City stage was UK based DJ/Production duo, SMOOVE AND TURRELL and kicked out a banging set of upbeat soul jerkin' tunes. Back over at the Main Stage, NY based retro-soul artist, MAYAENI took over with a rockin' set. Melbourne based folk, blues-rock singer-songwriter, HAMISH ANDERSON dropped a killer set of Hendrix inspired guitar hooks. Closing out the night was our headlining act, Grammy award winners, DIRTY VEGAS. This electronic duo of Steve Smith and Paul Harris opened with a stripped down performance of their smash hit from 2001, "Days Go By". The boys were in town to promote their forthcoming album, "Let The Night" due out later this year and released through Rostrum Records. This is the groups first-ever self-released album.

Having made a name for himself across the local scene for his impressive live show that encompasses a mix of blues, rock and folk with moments of loud, electric blues-soaked songs as well as delicate acoustic balladry, Hamish and his band have released a debut EP with a host of noteworthy tunes and a songwriting and vocal maturity well beyond his twenty-one years. While he continues to write and record on a continuous basis, his EP is available now on iTunes.
