Grammy Award winning duo Rodrigo y Gabriela grew up on an eclectic mix of classic rock, heavy metal and flamenco, a rare alchemy of influences that still informs their work today. Not long after the dissolution of their first band, the two musicians busking on Dublin’s Grafton Street — a turn of events that led to their crossing paths with Irish singer/songwriter Damien Rice, who then asked them to open for him at an early headline show. Rodrigo y Gabriela quickly gained recognition for their extraordinary live show and made their full-length debut with 2002’s re-Foc. Along with turning out 8 additional acclaimed and kaleidoscopic albums over the years: including Area 52 (a 2012 effort made with a Cuban orchestra), 9 Dead Alive (a 2014 release that spotlighted their more rock-leaning sensibilities) and the 2020 Grammy winning Best Contemporary Instrumental Album, Mettavolution, the duo has cemented their status as a globally renowned live act. 2023 sees the release of their most ambitious project yet, the Advaita Vedanta inspired In Between Thoughts...A New World.
In 2013, classic rock titans the Steve Miller Band celebrated the 40th anniversary of their influential 1973 album The Joker, transporting fans to the heavenly '70s with extended renditions of the album's title track on their tour dates alongside the Doobie Brothers. The band's spacious, psychedelic sound is perfectly suited to large venues, and Miller continues to fill arenas and stadiums with his dynamic live concerts. Riding high on a wave of good vibes from their 2013 shows, the Steve Miller Band has fans eagerly awaiting their 2014 tour dates with Journey and Tower of Power.
Multi-platinum band Shinedown embody the kind of creative dynamism that transcends boundaries with over 6.5 billion global streams, 15 platinum and gold singles, 10 million albums sold worldwide, and major media acclaim.
