Ike Willis Of The Frank Zappa Band
It was while in college at Washington University, St. Louis that Ike Willis and Frank Zappa met. As a guitar player since the age of 8, Ike was studying political science. He volunteered to help with the concert committee just so he could get a "Back Stage Pass" to meet Frank Zappa. The rest as they say, is history.As the one of longest playing members of Frank Zappa's bands, Ike is still upholding his promise to Frank. That promise is to continue on, playing the music of which Zappa had taught Ike oh so well. To this day Ike fulfills Frank's wish by playing with some awesome Zappa tribute bands from around the world.

Mr. Act Now Or Never
Mike Wolpin and the Generation Blues Band
Formed by brothers Brandon Graham (vocals, guitar) and Shane Graham (drums, percussion), Los Angeles based indie rockers Nacosta (pronounced: “Nuh-coast-uh”) cultivate a unique blend of rock, folk, moody atmospherics and psychedelic sounds. Growing up with a guitar-playing father, while still young the siblings listened to classic rock – Led Zeppelin, The Who, The Beatles, Pink Floyd and The Stones. After getting their first musical instruments as teenagers, they began honing their own skills and jumping into songwriting. Brandon remembers, “Right away, I had the songwriting bug, and from there on it has always been about chasing songs. Songwriting is interesting because you could sit down and hammer out a song, or, better yet, once in a while inspiration hits and you chase after the song, grab it by its tail and then try to describe it as accurately as you hear it.”
