Tribal Theory (San Diego, Ca)....Burnin'

Tribal Theory has been burning up the eardrums of fans and the radio waves all over SoCal and beyond. Numerous radio and TV appearances to support their ever expanding follower base have contributed to their rise in indie notoriety. Enough so that they caught the attention Of the infamous California based reggae band "The Expendables"!

Currently they are on a tour with "The Expendables" playing dates all over the US and even a show in the Netherlands???...What??? Who knew they loved reggae in the land of the Dutch....lol

Great to have these guys on board as they are also the "MYSTERY SPOTLIGHT" for ep. 9. This track "Burnin" has been tearing up the reggae charts on Reverbnation and has garnered them many featured spots on the website and also the title for #1 band in San Diego. its been featured on my show as well on Ep.8 in the "Funk Trunk" segment.

Thanks for checking out Tribal Theory and our show as well as all the songs posted here at Podomatic.


Be on the lookout for a possible spotlight article review for this band at my website from my team of no nonsense (well sometimes..ok not often..lol) experienced gurus of the musical blogging universe.

Hoonch (La, Cali)....1984

Born from the ashes in the breakup of Cali pop kings Walla. Vocalist Jonathan Kim and keyboard/backing vocals Gabriel Rodriguez, citing creative differences packed up their toys and headed for a new sandbox to play in.

The duo were quite the creative driving force behind Walla and they have really dug deep on this new album and found the "pop" spark that made Walla so famous. They drew from all 4 of their past ep's to bring us one awesome stellar 6 song ep "Audio Paradisio" that represents the very best of Walla and builds upon that sound to bring us an all new "pop masterpiece".

I swear if this cd were to fall in the hands of the right major label these guys would be multi platinum stars.

Well... another homerun from the Halshack!! Were batting a thousand...come root for us to #1 show on all of Podomatic.


Spank (Winston-Salem, NC) ....Breathing

Here we have a hard working eclectic 4 piece rock band hailing from the Triad region of North Carolina. Spank has built a solid reputation in the area for high energy original songs and cover tunes to boot. If youre a local club in the area, you would be wise to book this band for a night and you would ask them back again and again.

Spank's mentor and world renowned producer (Mitch Easter) lives in the area (Fidelitorium Studios) and has worked with famous acts such as Michael Stipe and R.E.M.

Spank won a "Battle of the Bands" contest I was holding back in 2009 in Greensboro and we have forever been friends. These guys bring a good mix of hair band 80's rock and infuse it with a modern edge that works well across their range of 3 very distinct lead singers.

Give them a go...they are sure to please your ears and eyes if you ever catch them in action.

Quick memo..."Jody Blevins" bass player for Spank passed away awhile back. Very sad for the band and I was grateful to have met Jody. He will forever be honored at my website.

Former American Idol semi-finalist Season 11....Adam Lee Decker needed a band to front...he was in luck (North Carolina homegrown band) Spaceship Days needed a singer...it was destiny. The band quickly melded with their new lead and off they went to semi-stardom.

Numerous concerts in the region as well as several awards for best local band, best band in the state and so forth. Garnered them enough attention that they got in the race for a "grammy" nomination for their track "December" off their freshmen release with their new found vocal deity.

The band continues to grow their fan base of 20k strong and has just released a new cd. Hope you enjoy this track "Heartbeat" from their second and probably their best cd release "Saving the Universe"

So give it up for the local boys from NC who used to be in a band called "grey" many many moons ago...Ive known these guys for a long dang time..Ive had the pleasure of watching them grow!!

What an excellent rock band, primed and ready for the masses. This band has a solid footing in the bay area and continues to reach outward setting their horizons on national success.

They have a handful of radio ready well produced tunes for the commercial market and could do well on the rockwaves in any city USA.

Be on the lookout for more from this rising quartet out of Cali, as they are sure to impress many on their rise to possible fame.

Dang good front woman for this thundering rock band out of Canada.

I don't find many really good strong female singers much less female-fronted bands so when i stumbled across this band I instantly gravitated toward their band and sound.

This girl and band are the real deal!! See what you think about Open Sails...do they have what it takes to set their sites on new horizons?...... I believe they most certainly do!




Thanks for rockin the Halshack folks!!

Find 3 songs you can only get here at #1 music.......

One of Britian's brightest and talented future stars!!

Luke has a HUGE following on Twitter with over 300,000 fans. Luke travels all over the UK spreading his good vibes and melting hearts along the way.

He has established himself as a premiere indie pop act and has been catching the eyes of industry music leaders across England and the world. Luke has a strong creative team behind him and his music as well as a powerful support staff that have helped vault him to minor celebrity status in the UK.

So glad to have Luke as part of my team here at Halshack Indie Rockcast and look forward to more fantastic "hits" from the Luke Potter camp in the future.

Luke has released a full-length cd and I believe he has one on the way. We have featured "Ready or Not" and "all the Same" in past shows and are slated for repeat in the near future as we wit for more top pop "hits" from Luke Potter.

Thanks Luke for being on my team. I really appreciate all the support!!
