Fastball
Fastball is known for their smash hits that include “The Way,” “Out of My Head,” “You’re An Ocean,” and “Fire Escape,” and their dynamic live shows, where no two are the same. With more than 20 years of musical explorations and milestones under its belt, Fastball remains one of the most consistent and continuously celebrated rock bands on the road today. In 2017, the Grammy-nominated band released their 6th studio album, “Step Into Light,” their first album in eight years.

“At first the success felt weird because it happened so fast,” shares drummer Joey Shuffield. Their 1998 record “All the Pain Money Can Buy” skyrocketed to platinum-plus sales in a mere six months, sending the guys on a whirlwind tour of the world. Along the way, Fastball scored a pair of coveted Grammy nominations, an MTV Music Award nomination and regular rotation on the late-night talk show circuit (Conan, Letterman and Leno to name a few). Over the years, they performed with artists such as Foo Fighters, Mike Peters from The Alarm, Cy Curnin from The Fixx, Boy George, the reunited Culture Club, Billy Preston, Stray Cats singer Brian Setzer, former Wallflowers guitarist Michael Ward, Everclear, and had an album produced by Spoon collaborator Mike McCarthy and Fountains of Wayne’s Adam Schlesinger.

“I think we’ve grown into a really good rock n’ roll band that’s way better than we’ve ever been,” explains Zuniga. “We have an audience that’s stuck with us the whole time and playing shows never feels like work because it’s a ton of fun. We know people want to hear the hits and we definitely have those in there, but we try to play something off every record.” Adds Shuffield: “Our overall vibe depends on the room. If we’re playing a big festival, we like to rock out and make it as exciting as possible, but we’re also known to vibe a bit more if we’re in a smaller, more intimate setting.” After being musicians for more than 20 years, they have hit their peak and learned how to communicate better as bandmates. There’s greater depth to their music as a result.
Starbelly
Starbelly
Starbelly is a 4 piece rock band cut from the same cloth as Crowded House, Squeeze, Wilco and The Knack. Some call their music Power Pop. Some describe it as Brit Pop. Whatever it's called, it comes with large amounts of jangly guitars and lush, 4-part harmonies. Because each member is an accomplished songwriter, their music is a large landscape of sound and lyrics.

Starbelly's latest album "Four" is due out this fall just as the band is celebrating it's 20th year together.
