Blacktop Mojo – A hard-driving Southern rock unit based out of Palestine, Texas, Blacktop Mojo’s fiery blend of post-grunge, classic rock, and metal falls somewhere between Soundgarden, Black Stone Cherry, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Founded in 2012 by frontman Matt James and drummer Nathan Gillis, the band eventually morphed into a five-piece with the additions of bass player Matt Curtis and guitarists Ryan Kiefer and Kenneth Irwin. They released their debut album, I Am, in 2014, followed by a heavy bout of touring that saw the group sharing the stage with a wide array of heavy hitters, including Bon Jovi, Sammy Hagar, Candlebox, Darryl “DMC” McDaniels, Black Stone Cherry, Shaman’s Harvest, Pop Evil, Puddle of Mudd, and Drowning Pool.
In 2017, the band teamed up with Muscle Shoals producer Jimmy Johnson for their highly anticipated sophomore outing Burn the Ships. The album was released via the band’s label, Cuhmon Records, in March of that year to critical acclaim, and it’s first single, “Where The Wind Blows” reached #27 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock chart, while the band was on its first U.S. tour that fall. Through that tour, they landed a slot on 2018’s Rock Fest, featuring headliners, Disturbed, Incubus, and Godsmack, among many other industry leading hard rock acts.
At the beginning of 2018, the band has started work on its third full length release, as well as touring to support the second radio single from, “Burn The Ships”.
Hollowpoint – a hard hitting quartet that delivers an entertaining show and great original music. Founded in 2012 (by guitarist Erek Wright and bassist Aaron Campisi) they have been working on developing a name for themselves. Finding singer Petey to fill the lead vocal spot they’re continuing to mature their sound. Hollowpoint has been described by national acts to resemble a rock sound, similar to Black Stone Cherry.
