Koffin Kats - (Set time: 11:00 PM)
Koffin Kats
The groundwork for what has become the relentlessly-touring sonic assault known as The Koffin Kats was laid near Detroit, Michigan when Vic Victor (Lead Vocalist, Upright Bass) joined forces with long-time friend Tommy Koffin (Guitar). After adding Damian Detroit (Drums) the band kicked off in June 2003, stopping for nothing. Now, with over ten years of touring internationally and over two thousand live shows, the touring trio’s current home is out on the open road.

The Koffin Kats began by putting together songs with such subjects as dealing with the horrors of the real world, as well as Science Fiction. The band started in small local bars playing for beer, hoping for gas money, and eventually made their way out of the Midwest. The next couple of years contained positives including numerous North American tours, and negatives concerning changes at the drumming position. During this time they released their first three albums: Koffin Kats (2003), Inhumane (2005), and Straying From The Pack (2006).

The three album releases and their supporting tours gained attention for The Koffin Kats and helped get the band noticed in the wide world of punk and psychobilly. In 2007 Vic and Tommy connected with drummer Eric “E-Ball” Walls to record the band’s fourth studio album, Drunk In The Daylight (2008), and catalyzed what the band is now known for: love for their fans and the road, and playing everywhere for everyone willing to watch and listen.

In the years following the release of Drunk In The Daylight, The Koffin Kats have established their name performing in Europe, and have also been included on tours with some of the tops acts in psychobilly, including, but not limited to, Mad Sin, Nekromantix, and The Meteors. In 2009 the trio released their fifth studio album, Forever For Hire, and Tommy departed at the year’s end to pursue a normal life. Shortly thereafter, “EZ” Ian Jarrell took over the guitarist position and joined the band on tour. While on the road they worked on the material that would become featured on their split album with fellow psychobilly act 12 Step Rebels, From Our Hands To Yours (2011).

The Koffin Kats signed with Sailor’s Grave Records in late 2011, and released Our Way & The Highway in January 2012. The trio supported their sixth studio album’s release with non-stop international touring, finally ending in summer of 2013. In autumn of the same year, they released another full-length album with Sailor’s Grave Records, Born Of The Motor. Sales and reviews have proven Born Of The Motor, the band’s seventh studio album, to be their most successful release to date.

Early 2014 brought another change to The Koffin Kats’ member roster; Ian Jarrell left the band to handle personal business at home in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Not wanting to bring someone too far removed from The Koffin Kats family into the fold, Vic and Eric enlisted John Kay (Guitar). John was the engineer on numerous recording sessions for the group, and producer of both Drunk In The Daylight and Born Of The Motor. The Koffin Kats now move forward doing what they do best: keeping live music . . . ALIVE!

The Black Rose Phantoms - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
The Black Rose Phantoms
From the very beginning The Black Rose Phantom's own take on music was one that was never heard before. Taking a mixture of traditional Psychobilly music (made popular in Europe during the 1980's), along with various influences from Metal, Punk and Country/Rockabilly Genres.

Based out of Long Beach, CA The Black Rose Phantoms formed in late 2002. With only a short 8 months the band was asked to join Hell Cat Records very own Nekromantix as they ventured on a West Coast Tour. Within the months that followed, the band found themselves in the studio recording their Far From Heaven demo. Once pressed and ready for promotion the band caught yet another opportunity as they went on the there second major tour . This time in support of psychobilly legends Tiger Army. The tour helped the band branch out to new regions such as the South and Mid-West of the United States.

With the coming of 2007, The Black Rose Phantoms released their much anticipated full length album Beyond the Wall of Sleep on independent record label Smelvis Records. In support of the album the band set off on there 3rd major tour playing in such legendary venues as The House of Blues (Anaheim, Hollywood), El Corazon (Seattle), The Venue (Salt Lake City), and The Catalyst (Santa Cruz).

In recent success The Black Rose Phantoms were asked by energy drink sponsorship Roaring Lion to submit an all new track for there compilation Cd that will be distributed well through out the United States. Jumping at the chance the phantoms hit the studio with all new composed material that will be on there second full length release set for 2011. In other successes the hit song "Love You More Dead" from there 2008 EP was featured in the short film Cannibal Flesh Riot. Along with other accomplishments the band has been featured in magazines such as Skratch, Deadbeat and have also had the pleasure of doing vocals on Tiger Armys Ghost tigers rise release.

In anticipation for 2011 the band finds themselves finalizing the pre-production of their 2nd full length album. The band plans to shock their much respected audience once again with their re-invented unique sound.
