Hunnypot Live #405


Our guts (not our brains) tell us we only have about 100 years till the end of this planet and only 1 more Hunnypot Live show before the end of this year. Our 2nd to last show of the year, #405, might have made it all worth it.

Hot Tub Johnnie cooked the atmosphere early with "green" house gasses & party jams. In a not so change of climate, industry professional Kristen Agee (411 Music Group), jumped in the (fire) water with us. Kristen got an A+ on her interview where we learned about her career as a professional musician and copyright keeper. She also brought an awesome diverse playlist of music she shared with us.

The Living Strange gave us that curious life music filled with riff rock and catchy melodies, Velvet Starlings weren't nearly as soft as their moniker while they performed high energy rock n roll music, SILVERSAGE straddled that pop/rock/dance music line as tight as ever, Franklin Manor returned to perform melodic rock hits, and Hot Tub closed the night with a scorched earth dance party. 11/26/2018 resizeimage

The Living Strange

The Living Strange is an alternative rock band based in Brooklyn, NY that is the brainchild of 19 year old songwriter, Elijah Sokolow. Sokolow wanted to form a band that could combine heavy guitar driven riffs of Tom Morello with a more modern electronic atmosphere in the vein of Annie Clarke of St. Vincent. On the new debut album “Gunk”, nearly all instruments are performed by Sokolow other than drums, which are performed by Ben Shafrir. As a live act, The Living Strange consists of Sokolow (vocals, guitar), Ben Shafrir (drums), Nico Sleator (synth), and Miles Blue Spruce (bass). The band has toured throughout the U.S and recently did the Vans Warped Tour.

Currently the band is looking for Film & TV licensing opportunities and playing shows to support their new album release “Gunk”

Velvet Starlings

Velvet Starlings is fronted by Christian Gisborne a 15 year old indie rock singer, songwriter, producer and multi instrumentalist based in Los Angeles. He is known for a powerful 60s era Eric Burdon (The Animals) influenced vocal style combined with a commanding stage presence. Velvet Starling's unique performance style has invited media and industry insider comparisons to Jack White and Ty Segal. Gisborne's early musical influences included British Invasion staples, such as The Beatles, The Who and the Rolling Stones. Already making a name for himself at such a young age, Velvet Starlings has garnered attention from Los Angeles powerhouse KROQ as well as Sirius XM. His fusion of gritty garage blues coupled with Brit inspired rock has led to high profile festival bookings including SXSW/MEcon and Summerfest Milwaukee. Velvet Starlings’ long awaited self-titled EP on Sound x 3 Records / Rock N Rolla Records is set for release late 2018 which was a collaboration with producer songwriter Roger Gisborne (leader of 90s Brit Rock band “Plastiscene”), mastered by Brian Lucey (Arctic Monkeys, Beck, Black Keys). The seven track EP kicks off with leading single and video, “If Life Ain’t Getting You High”. The single features vintage guitar sounds, driving drums and hard hitting rock vocals. With introspective lyricism detailing living in the moment, "If Life Ain't Getting You High” is an anthem for the youth of today. The band wear their influences proudly on their sleeves with second single, “Borrowed Time”, a clear tribute to the sixties British Invasion era, which has been receiving considerable airplay & review. "Sold Down The River”, the latest single, showcases Dylan-esque lyrics, soulful Hammond B3 organ, gritty guitars and raw blues inspired vocals. 

Tastemaker/DJ Rodney Bingenheimer (who broke artists such as David Bowie and Coldplay in the US on KROQ) has also been spinning the singles on his Sirius radio show, Underground Garage as has another former KROQ DJ, Mike Rogers whose radio show in Tokyo, Japan boasts over 3M listeners. As a result of tremendous reaction from radio, Velvet Starlings are receiving offers to tour internationally from all corners of the globe, including Japan, United Kingdom, Mexico, Australia, Canada and South Africa. Velvet 
Starlings just returned from Sweden and the Live At Heart international music festival and SXSW Stockholm and is expected to cross the pond for a full European tour in 2019. Velvet Starlings is also receiving terrestrial radio airplay in such US markets as Ohio, Texas, California, Indiana and New York including KROQ, KFMG, KOSU, WLKK, WPNH, KEGR, WCOO, WEDG,WRXL, 91X, KCSN and WQRR
