The Venice Philharmonic Orchestra

The Venice Philharmonic Orchestra current lineup consists of Michael Jost on electric guitar, Hailey Demian on bass and Andy Kravitz on drums.

The first use of ‘philharmonic’ was in London in 1813. An organisation was founded called the Philharmonic Society. The word ‘philharmonic’ translates to ‘music lover’. The sources I’ve found say this was taken from the French ‘philharmonoque’, but I think it is more likely that the word was taken right from the Greek. Greek is much more fashionable than French – especially if you’re living in London in 1813.

Golden Buddha

It’s a long story …

They are the originators of the Mantra-Rock sound of the 90’s which has now infused itself into the consciousness of the new millennia.

With Teo Castro on Guitar and Vocals, Billy Stobo on Drums, and Jeffrey Dimmick on Bass, Golden Buddha becomes a mixture of ancient tones and modern sounds, interwoven with funky tribal rhythms and a hard biting edge.

  • The pulsating grooves of the bass are sensual and erotic.
  • The unrelenting drums are thunderous and melodic.
  • The soaring guitars and mystic vocals are penetrating and chaotic.

Dean

Dean is Isaac Irvin (guitar/vocals), Michael Jost (bass) and Kevin Witucki (drums).

Following the 2015 solo EP release, primary songwriter and guitarist Isaac Irvin didn’t give fans any time to lament instead he hit the ground running with his new project DEAN, a harder-edged continuation of his work. Since then Isaac has proven himself quite the frontman, impressing audiences around LA with rollicking performances of tunes like “Walk Away” and “Alive”. He throws in a few classic numbers like “Silverlake” and “holding on to you” for good measure, ensuring fans both old and new get to rock out to their favorite jams.
