End of Ever - (Set time: 10:40 PM)
End of Ever
Where do you find the End Of Ever? Whether your search takes you to the hypnotic ambience of a Sunset Strip night club or the psychotropic sanctuary of stereo headphones, you’ll find End Of Ever right where you need it most: between your ears.

E.O.E., the LA rock band’s robust, five song EP, heralds the emergence of four young artists driven to excellence by a shared passion for creating inspired, approachable music. Infusing elements of trip-hop, jazz, rock, and pop, End Of Ever’s songs are the vibrant product of the collaboration of musicians influenced by a multitude of music genres.

From “Don’t Go” to “Why Did You Come Here?” the EP is an emotional journey of longing, doubt, resolution and decision. Vocalist Dahni Piro’s sultry voice rises above a tsunami of haunting melodies created by keyboardist Richard Parizer, bass guitarist Jason Hammond, and percussionist Jesse Shadis.

Shadis, who produced the band’s EP along with bassist Hammond at his Everrok Records studio, is impressed by the group’s diversity, versatility and work ethic. “The songs have so many generations of influence intertwined in them, because everyone’s musical interests are so broad. People of many cultures and backgrounds will find things they like in these songs.”

End Of Ever formed in 2009. The band’s members have had a life-long love affair with music. "

-CHARLES SMITH, JOURNALIST

“End Of Ever provides a wonderful sonic blend of the minimalist indie touch and airy melodies of artists
like Sia, Dido and Portishead, giving them a wide genre appeal.”

Margo Rey
Margo Rey's recent cd release, "My Heart's Desire," is an elegant reminder why the human voice is referred to as an "instrument." She's created nothing less than a ferociously nuanced and passionate sound that defies nomenclature. Ms. Reymundo, cognizant of that inevitable realization, refers to it as "Organica" — a kind of counterpoise to "Electronica." In other words, she's articulating a world constructed of unfettered vocals that rivals anything created with synthesized sound.

This album of "Work and Love" as Reymundo calls it, offers a range of sensuous rhythms and vocals in the form of intelligently handled songs featuring Margo's original compositions and three covers. It's the kind of music that makes you want to turn out the lights and drift. As in: forever – past time zones and continents.
DUSTY RAY - (Set time: 12:20 AM)
Jason Hemmens - (Set time: 11:30 PM)
Jason Hemmens
Born in Roxbury, Massachusetts, and raised in Waldo, Maine, Jason grew up listening to everything from eighties Rap to Classic Rock, Blues, Jazz and Country. He joined the school choir in fifth grade, and co-founded a rap duo called “Def Poet Society." At ten years old, Jason began writing songs and performing for school events. As a teenager he gained local celebrity status while performing with his family band “Hemmens,” and "The Mount View Chamber Singers," an elite high school choir. At the age of fifteen Jason began playing the harmonica. A year later he picked up alto and tenor saxophone. He gained experience jamming with various Blues Artists who passed through town including Shemekia Copeland, Bernard Allison Jr. and Phillip Walker.

Shortly after graduating high school, Hemmens moved to Louisiana, and enrolled in the Jazz Studies Program at the University of New Orleans. It was at this time that he really began to develop his skills as a multi instrumentalist/vocalist. He studied with Jazz legends Terrance Blanchard and Harold Battiste during the day and performed at clubs on Bourbon Street through the night.

After graduating from UNO, Jason moved to Los Angeles, California where he currently resides. He is making a name for himself as an in-demand performer and studio musician. Hemmens has performed with Stevie Wonder, Tevin Campbell, and members of Guns N’ Roses and Poison, just to name a few. Jason is a true multi-instrumentalist, fluent on Saxophone, Harmonica, Piano, and Bass as well as being an accomplished Vocalist. In February, 2007, Hemmens performed at the Java Jazz Festival with Indonesian Legend Dwiki Dharmawan, and Los Angeles based group “Shapes."

In April, 2009, Jason began producing his debut album “Welcome to Reality,” for release on his indie label, Fan2C Records, with executive producer Sassy Outwater. The project was recorded at Studio City Sound, with Grammy-award-winning engineer Tom Weir, and features some of the best studio musicians in Los Angeles, including Keyboardist Herman Jackson (Stevie Wonder, American Idol); Guitarist Tim Pierce (Michael Jackson, Santana Madonna); and drummer Ronald Bruner Jr. (Stanley Clarke, Larry Carlton, Marcus Miller). The CD consists of ten songs, eight of which are Self-Penned. The album is a mix of pop, rock, and jazz. It show-cases Jason on alto, tenor and soprano sax, piano, keyboards, vocals and harmonica.
