The Expendables enjoyed a laid-back lifestyle growing up in Santa Cruz, CA; surfing, skating, partying, and playing music were commonplace. Since 1997, The Expendables have staked their claim in the California surf/rock genre by headlining venues from coast to coast. Blending Reggae, Punk Rock, and 80s style dueling guitar solos, The Expendables have made heads turn and floors shake for years.
The band consists of four longtime friends: Geoff Weers (Guitar and Vocals), Adam Patterson (Drums and Vocals), Raul Bianchi (Lead Guitar) and Ryan DeMars (Bass).
While touring and supporting their album, Gettin’ Filthy, The Expendables would share the stage with Slightly Stoopid and catch the attention of founders and front men Kyle McDonald and Miles Doughty. In 2007 Slightly Stoopid formed their own independent label, Stoopid Records, and signed The Expendables for the label’s first non-Stoopid release, which was The Expendables self-titled. Released in September 2007, the album would be accepted as an instant classic by fans and received rave reviews from critics.
The band continued supporting the album with hundreds of shows over the next two years, gaining fans around the world, and respect from the bands that influenced them. The band would share the stage with bands like Slightly Stoopid, NoFX, Less Than Jake, Pennywise and Pepper to name a few. At the end of 2009 and beginning of 2010 the band would work on their next album, Prove It, produced by Paul Leary (producer of Sublime, Slightly Stoopid, Pepper, Supersuckers, as well as the guitar player for Butthole Surfers) and El Hefe (guitar player for NoFX).
Prove It was released May 11th 2010 debuting at #158 on the Billboard Top 200, #30 on Billboard’s Independent charts, and #4 on Billboard’s Heatseekers! The album also pushed to #15 on iTunes Top 200 and #5 on iTunes Alternative Charts, jumping The Expendables to a new level in their career. The band’s new release would include guest performances by C-Money, OG, and Dela of Slightly Stoopid throughout the album. Jumping into the mix as well would be long time friend G. Love on the ballad “Wells”.
The Expendables have continued their tenacious touring schedule in 2011 with their popular annual Winter Blackout Tour. This summer, the band will be featured on all dates of the massive yearly festival favorite, Warped Tour. Thirteen years later, five albums down and countless miles covered, The Expendables show no signs of slowing down.
Stick Figure launched in Duxbury, Massachusetts. Stick Figure showcases the talents of multi-instrumentalist and producer Scott Woodruff. Stick Figure’s music has a unique style that creatively blends upbeat roots reggae with the reverberating echoes of dub. Often referred to as the “one man band,” Scott single-handedly created 4 full length albums from 2006-2012 (a fifth album, “Reprise Sessions,” was recorded with a full band and released in 2010), and has sold over 50,000 albums worldwide. Each of Stick Figure’s songs are created by recording instruments individually, layering tracks on top of one another in unison. The current lineup adds the creative, musical talents of Kevin Bong (Keyboards), Kevin Offitzer (Drums) and Tommy Suliman (Bass).
In the Fall of 2012, Stick Figure embarked on their first ever tour, linking up with The Green and performing 18 shows along the East Coast. Their debut tour ignited flames under both the band and dedicated fans who’ve been patiently waiting to hear Woodruff’s music live. Stick Figure has since toured the nation twice with San Diego natives Tribal Seeds, Passafire, John Brown’s Body and also headlined their own national tour in the Spring of 2013, boasting numerous sold out dates.
Stick Figure is gearing for the Winter Blackout Tour with The Expendables and Seedless in January of 2014 and are looking forward to bringing their music to more fans across the nation.
