SUNDAZED ARTISTS TOUR AND EVENTS INFO
The See See
In the mountain of discs that come across our desks, occasionally there is a band that completely captivates us and makes our hearts pump. And bet – we're positively thrilled to have The See See as Sundazed artists.
Adjusting for population growth, there are...well, a BUNCH more than the thirteen hundred and fifty-two Music City guitar pickers John Sebastian wrote about in 1966. Indeed, guitar-toting cats in Nashville outnumber the pickup trucks and that's saying something. It's also saying something that, in a city full of six-string savants, there is one guitarist all the other guitarists watch in awe. A player who can float a gentle, lilting line and then launch a ferocious fretboard attack in the space of a few measures. A multi-talented axeman like J.D. Simo. .

The band that launched a thousand bands. Founded in Tacoma, Washington in 1958, their guitar-based instrumental sound would prove hugely influential, inspiring countless followers to pick up a guitar, bass or set of drumsticks and try to emulate their heroes.
Now in their 6th decade of spreading the "Word of the Bird" throughout the land!
No dates scheduled at this time.
The Left Banke
Baroque-pop pioneers currently bringing their show of classical music arrangements and beautiful vocal harmonies on the road.
NRBQ - Terry Adams
The wildly eclectic New Rhythm & Blues Quintet, better known to its worldwide legion of adoring fans as NRBQ (or just "the Q" for short!), is the only band on the planet that can fill its dance card with rockabilly, Beatles sound-alikes, bar-band blooze and Sun Ra-inspired free-jazz freakouts and remain standing.
Founding member of the seminal folk-rock band the Byrds, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame member Roger McGuinn continues to record and tour the world.
The New Mastersounds
The New Mastersounds are one of the leading forces in the international funk uprising!
The Lovin' Spoonful
From the Greenwich Village folk scene to the top of the charts the Lovin' Spoonful established themselves amongst the greats of the mid-sixties era and continue on that tradition today.
Perhaps the single most influential figure in the history of rock.
The Magic Band
The Magic Band keeping the genius of Captain Beefheart alive!
The Funky Meters
Original Meters George Porter Jr. and Art Neville continue to bring the Funk!
Los Straitjackets are the world's leading practitioners of the guitar instrumental. Taking their cue from the style of The Ventures, The Shadows, Dick Dale and Link Wray, the band has pushed the style into the 21st century with their memorable live performances, albums and TV appearances, all the while clad in their trademark Lucha Libre masks.
The Martian Denny Orchestra
Delivering the wild instrumental sounds of The Ventures / Santo & Johnny / Rockin’ Rebels / Duane Eddy / Johnny & the Hurricanes and many, many others the pedigree of Martian Denny’s Nashville members is impeccable. Guitarist Eddie Angel shakes up the world of indie-rock with Los Straitjackets and the Planet Rockers. Guitarist Bob Irwin, the man behind famed reissue label Sundazed Music, is the fretboard whiz of New York’s Pluto Walkers. Dave Roe played bass for Johnny Cash and works the same magic for John Mellencamp and many others. Jim Hoke plays steel guitar and woodwinds for NRBQ, Toby Keith and others. The rock-solid beat comes courtesy of the mighty Jimmy Lester, the original skinsman of Los Straitjackets and now with Webb Wilder’s honky tonk hellions.
Oscar and the Majestics
Sundazed wants to let you in on one of the best kept secrets of ’60s garage bandom, Oscar & the Majestics. Oscar Hamod is one of those unsung heroes of the genre; a first-rate songwriter, arranger, singer and above all else, monster guitar player. Now back out on tour!
The Yardbirds were the bridge between the tributary white R&B of early-sixties London and the pastures of fuzz-toned psychedelia and power-chorded heavy metal plowed much later in the decade and throughout the seventies. Yes, the Yardbirds laid the groundwork for rock guitar as we know it.
Iggy & the Stooges
The Godfather of punk, now reunited with "Raw Power" guitarist James Williamson, melting faces around the world!
R. Stevie Moore
R. Stevie Moore has self-released hundreds of albums on each successive era’s format du jour (cassette, LP, CD, digital download). He’s had vinyl and CD compilations produced worldwide on two dozen indie labels. For a songwriter with a massive catalog of prime material, Moore’s revenue stream has barely afforded him the luxury of replacing gear plagued by worn-out switches. Yet most of the surviving labels who turned deaf ears to R. Stevie Moore are now, like him, struggling to make a buck on their catalogs. Their corner-office execs come and go. R. Stevie Moore is still here.
It was Mitch and the Detroit Wheels who served as the musical bridge between the Motown soul factory and the high energy, take no prisoners rock 'n' roll that would later roar out of Detroit.
Paul Revere and the Raiders
Original band leader Paul Revere continues to fly the flag of mid-sixities rock & roll mayhem.
No British Invasion group came close to emulating the hackle-raising vocal harmonies of Manchester's Hollies. From psychedelia to pure pop, the Hollies could do it with their eyes closed.
Jefferson Airplane members Jorma Kaukonen and Jack Casady mix traditional songs with their own compositions in a stripped-down, primarily acoustic style.
Dick Dale is a fretboard whiz whose heavily-reverbed Fender guitar and frenzied, string-busting attack created a sound that would forever define surf music.
Scottish troubadour Donovan Leitch—aka Donovan— in 1966 turned the pop world on its head by breaking from the folk scene and taking the psychedelic plunge. His live shows bridge both genres and are always a trip through the history of rock & roll.
A visionary a guitarist Jeff Beck certainly is at the top of anyone’s list of most exciting rock ’n’ roll fretboard whizzes ever, from his work with the Yardbirds, the Jeff Beck Group and beyond…
Taj Mahal helped set the table for the joyous marriage of traditional blues and the revolutionary sound of '60s rock 'n' roll.
One of the finest—and most underrated—’60s soul divas, the Detroit-raised Bettye LaVette has finally begun to get her due, thanks largely to the recent generation of crate-digging soul seekers.
Booker T. Jones (Booker T. & the MG's)
When Booker T. & The MG’s hit the pop charts in 1962 with the laid-back, deep-grooved, soulful sounds of “Green Onions” they would create the road map for the enormously successful, Memphis-based Stax Sound that would captivate the entire world for the rest of the decade. Today, Booker T. Jones continues to record and tour.
