50 Sticks of Dynamite
50 Sticks of Dynamite
The banjo isn't widely regarded as a sexy instrument. But much the way Jake Shimabakuro has redefined the ukelele, Ian McFadyen has managed to expose the humble 5-string's naughty side, awakening fans to pleasures previously unknown.

Packing a healthy repertoire of electric roots rock songs about love, lust and heartbreak, 50 Sticks of Dynamite exploded onto the Ventura County music scene in 2010 — and it's been nothing but fireworks ever since.The band has released two full-length records, the most recent being Love Dream Truth Love, and maintains a No. 1 position on ReverbNation's local Americana chart.

Weaned on bluegrass, McFadyen and has been plucking strings with passion and precision since he was 9 years old.
He is joined by Whitey Wingland (who trained with seminal folk artist Mary McCaslin and the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band's Jimmy Ibbotson on guitar and harmonica, and the dynamic duo of
bassist Michael Dominguez and Chris Jensen on drums.
Galactic Polecats
Galactic Polecats
Rockabilly/Psychobilly/Punk band out of Ventura County, CA.

Tearin’ down that great Rockabilly Highway, blazed by the legends from the The King and The Cash, to The Cats and The Reverend, the Galactic Polecats have roared onto the music scene with their own mash of Hillbilly, Punk, and good ‘ol Rock'n'Roll, all cooked into a high energy, balls-to-the-wall, 100-proof brand of brew with a sound all their own -- affectionately knows as ‘Shinerbilly’. Now these fellas are bootlegging their sound all over Southern California and beyond! With Tim Driscol (Battle Flask) on the guitar, Tim Kirkland (Zippy Josh and the Rag Tag Band, Platoon 1107) on the drums, Steve Janowski (The Porch Girls, Good Dog Nigel ) slappin' on the bass, and Charlie Schaefer (Sevenrest, Mayors of Garratt) on vocals, you ain't going to find a more happenin' shindig this side of the Mississippi.
