Von Strantz , their sound is brilliant, beautiful and downright soulful. Founding member Jess Strantz, who after many years of being in indie rock bands, decided it was time to start to step up her game as a storyteller, composer and arranger and started Von Strantz in the summer of 2012. She invited her favorite musicians Kelsey Artzen, Nicolas Leatherman, Josiah Gaut, Chad Campbell, Kristen McDonald and Isaiah Brock to accompany her.

Von Strantz’s music is a continuous story of a community of people who are searching for beauty, honesty and truth, in the world around them and most of all in the community they have with each other.

You can sense this greatly not only in their music but in their live performance. With Jess Strantz’s powerful and soulful voice, along with Von Strantz’s catchy melodies, reminiscing of old spirituals, tight musicianship, and unique story telling, you will not feel like you are being performed at, but instead find yourself being invited into their story.

[From the band's Facebook]

The Doña Ana Music Night Union is a group of multi-instrumental musicians with various leaders and songwriters who accompany one another and can back up other songwriters.

A heavy touring schedule of over 250 gigs a year in the US and abroad have led to a dedicated fan base. In 2012 Biscuit’s fun and funky style of bass playing earned him the Blues Music Award for Bassist of the Year. He also took 2nd place in the bassist category in the Blues Matters International Writers Poll. Biscuit Miller and The Mix are once again on the road with his latest CD “BLUES WITH A SMILE” and ready to bring a smorgasbord of fun to your party. What’s better than a bowlful of Soulful, Funky Blues stew? A pipin’ hot Biscuit, of course!

“Osteoferocious is the product of two stranded Indiana minds; Aaron Bragg and Erik Fox. Crunchy guitars combine with crunchier drums to create a snack that would fit right in with a bag of chips. And that’s something no one can complain about.”

“I have been touring the world since age 18, with artists such as Harper and Biscuit Miller and the MIX. I have a new CD coming out soon, produced by Dane Clark.”

“Cowboy Angels were born out of the singing and songwriting of Dan England, and have been assembled to play his soulful midwestern rock and roll songs to the delight of many. The Burden of Love and Sin is a confident and promising set of songs that let you know that this band isn’t goofing around. With plans to tour and record on an infinitely repeating cycle until the end of time, the Cowboy Angels give us much to look forward to.”
