Juicy J
In 2006, Juicy J, the founding member and front man of Southern hip-hop group Three 6 Mafia earned an Academy Award for Best Original Song (“Hard Out Here For a Pimp” from Hustle & Flow). While most artists would look forward, Juicy J, born Jordan Michael Houston, decided to return to square one. He spent the next years creating a street team, shooting videos and releasing mixtapesall in the name of the collective Three 6 buzz. However, in addition to furthering the group, the rapper found a solo career that transformed him from one part of a colossal whole to a standalone superstar. Along the way, Juicy J met Wiz Khalifa and earned a spot in his exclusive touring rap crew the Taylor Gang. The experience inspired the rapper to build a foundation of his own called the “Trippy Movement.” The rapper’s debut solo project, Stay Trippy, has already gotten fans’ attention. Its single “BandzA Make Her Dance,” originally released on Juicy J’s Twitter page, is certified Platinum. As a solo act, Juicy J strives to record tracks that still appeal to Three 6 Mafia members, but speak to hip-hop’s next generation as well. While bridging the gap between old and new fans under one trippy umbrella, he has cracked a code most veteran rappers struggle to decipher. There is no doubt that making uncompromised music that anyone can relate to is Juicy J’s forte.

Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires
Soul and R&B singer Charles Bradley didn’t become a recording artist by taking the easy route. Born in Gainesville, Florida in 1948 and raised in Brooklyn, New York, Bradley spent a good part of his childhood living on the streets. A transformational moment came when his sister took him to see James Brown at the Apollo Theater in 1962, and Bradley was struck by the singer’s energy and stage manner. Bradley escaped Brooklyn by joining the Job Corps and then spent years moving around the country and working odd jobs, before he eventually relocated back to Brooklyn to work on his dream of becoming a musician. Bradley began performing his James Brown-inspired routines in local clubs such as Black Velvet, where he attracted a loyal following and eventually capturing the attention of Gabriel Roth from Daptone Records. Roth immediately brought the singer into label sessions, releasing a single, “Take It as It Comes,” showcasing what Bradley had to offer as a vocalist. During this time he also met guitarist Thomas Brenneck, who released Bradley’s full album, No Time for Dreaming (2011), on his Daptone Records sub-imprint, Dunham Records. The singer received global acclaim for the album and toured relentlessly to support it. His follow-up, Victim of Love, was released in the spring of 2013.

THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS – comprising Jared Leto, Shannon Leto and Tomo Milicevic – has sold over 5 million albums worldwide and the band’s videos have more than 300 million views on YouTube. The group has received numerous awards, including a dozen MTV awards worldwide, a Billboard Music award and honors from NME, Kerrang! and Fuse.

In partnership with NASA, THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS launched the first single from the new album, LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS, into space. Literally. Sending the very first copy to the International Space Station, it got its ground breaking premiere from the astronauts in orbit 230 miles above Earth. LOVE LUST FAITH + DREAMS is the band’s fourth studio record. It follows This Is War, which was hailed as “an artistic triumph” by Alternative Press, “a shimmering epic” by MTV.com, and contained the No. 1 Modern Rock radio hits “This Is War” and “Kings and Queens.” During its two-year tour in support of This Is War, the band sold out arenas around the globe, playing over 311 shows in nearly 60 countries on six continents to three million people – and breaking the Guinness World Record® for the longest ever concert tour by a rock band.

Prior to 2009’s This Is War, THIRTY SECONDS TO MARS released its second album, A Beautiful Lie in 2005. The record produced two Top 5 Modern Rock singles in “From Yesterday” and “The Kill”, with the latter setting a record for the longest-running hit in the history of Modern Rock radio when it remained on the national airplay chart for more than 50 weeks following its number 3 peak in 2006.

Las Vegas’s very own rockers, Panic! at the Disco, formed in Summerlin in 2004. Today the band is Brendon Urie (lead vocals, guitar and piano), Spencer Smith (drums) and Dallon Weekes (bass). The band is known for its top ten single “I Write Sins Not Tragedies,” from the double-platinum album “A Fever You Can’t Sweat Out”. On October 8, the band released its fourth studio album “Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die!” which includes the July 15th released single “Miss Jackson.”

Reggae rock band, Pepper, consist of Kaleo Wassman (Vocals/Guitar), Bret Bollinger (Vocals/Bass) and Yesod Williams (Drums). The trio, who formed in 1997 in Hawaii, recently released their sixth album, a self-titled Pepper. The album broadens Pepper’s style, veering into new sonic territory while still retaining all the fun elements that make the band so beloved by their fans. The ever-present sense of life surges through the tracks, bolstering the sense of optimism throughout. The party anthems, the beach hang melodies, and the boisterous rhythms are all there, each song carefully crafted to best express these sunny moments by the ocean.

Pepper’s universal appeal has led to their music being placed in various movies and TV shows, including Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Good Luck Chuck, as well as several video game soundtracks.

Parade of Lights are an alt-electro band based in Los Angeles. Comprised of Ryan Daly, Anthony Improgo, Michelle Ashley and Randy Schulte, the group combines equal parts rock, electro, and shoegaze to create a unique blend of 80’s influenced pop drawing on inspiration from artists like U2, Depeche Mode, M83, and even Madonna.
