About:                    Born and raised in Harlem, Juelz was certain to make it big. He has been writing rhymes since he was 12 years old. He first started his rap career with his long time friend, Malik, as a rap duo called “Draft Pick”. “Draft Pick” had several gigs around New York City while performing together, including Amateur Night at the world famous Apollo Theatre, where they won two weeks in a row. Although the group is not together today, the two members still remain good friends. Juelz continued to believe in himself and his unique style, and there was someone else that believed in him also. His cousin, who is good friends with Cam’ron, decided that it was time for Juelz’s unique style to be heard. One day while with Cam, Juelz’s cousin drove through his block and had him rhyme for Cam. By the next week Juelz was in the studio recording a verse for the cut, “Double Up”, off of Cam’ron’s second album, “SDE”. Cam’ron believed in Juelz, and after signing to Roc-A-fella Records himself, Juelz received a deal with Roc-A-fella Diplomat Records. Diplomat Records is Cam’ron’s new record label, where Juelz is the Vice-President.

About:                    The Squeeze just released their debut self titled album in June 2012. Much like each member’s varied backgrounds and influences, the album itself contains an eclectic blend of inspiration which seamlessly navigates through funk, rock, electro, and jazz, while still rooting itself in something that’s uniquely their own.  Their unique ability to tackle and funkify such a wide variety of music makes each show a unique experience in its own right. Their live performances, which fuse soulful vocals, intricate jams, tight grooves, and ripping solos have helped them develop a dedicated and rapidly growing fan base in the Midwest and the East Coast earning them slots at music festivals such as Bonnaroo, Summer Camp, Equifunk, Big Pig, and GlowFest.
If you’ve ever wondered whether the juice is worth the squeeze, you should look no further – The Main Squeeze is sure to be hitting a city near you sometime soon, leaving their crowd funkified and freshly squozen.

About:                    New Orleans is known for its legendary supergroups. The latest and one of the greatest ever is Raw Oyster Cult, featuring members of the Radiators, Papa Grows Funk and Johnny Sketch and the Dirty Notes. Radiators frontman and guitarist Dave Malone and PGF’s founder John Gros give the band two of New Orleans’ most distinctive lead vocalists, and Gros adds his monster Hammond B-3 organ playing to the mix. Former Rads Camile Baudoin on guitar and vocals and drummer Frank Bua, Jr round out this amazing line-up. Bassist/vocalist Dave Pomerleau juggles his schedule with Johnny Sketch to be able to play with both bands. Graham Robinson or Cass Faulconer play bass whenever he can’t make it’.
Raw Oyster Cult was put together by Malone to provide an outlet to continue performing the classic Rads tunes that so many fans miss hearing. They also plan to write originals, put a different spin on favorite older songs and work up brand new tunes written or co-written by Ed Volker, the Rads’ prolific songwriter.
“It’s great rethinking Rads songs,” says Malone, “tweaking arrangements and even adding vocal harmonies, something the Rads were not really known for.”

About:                    Ruffins legacy-in-progress includes co-founding the Rebirth Brass Band in 1983. Rebirths creation was inspired by The Dirty Dozen Brass Band, which was credited with bringing influences of funk and contemporary bebop into New Orleans style brass bands.  “Kermit Ruffins is one of the prime reasons why New Orleans is mending
post-Katrina, bringing his good-time music to the people as an entertainer,” said All Music Guides Michael G. Nastos on Billboard.com, “As a trumpet player and singer of heritage jazz, soul, and popular music, he’s uplifting
the spirit of Crescent City dwellers who are slowly but surely rebuilding their neighborhoods.”
