"Special" landed among the Top 10 Greatest Gainers on BOTH the Billboard Indicator & Foundations Chart!

Serendipitous is an adjective that describes accidentally being in the right place at the right time, like bumping into a good friend in some unusual location, or finding a hundred dollar bill on the ground. The word could also be used well in describing the inception of the band ZFG. Within its ranks you’ll find seasoned songwriters and performers of which you may be familiar, but sometimes the sum of the parts is beyond expectations and lends itself to being genre defining.

Based in Los Angeles, CA, ZFG consists of Jules Galli on vocals, Trev Lukather on guitar, Sam Porcaro on bass and Josh Devine on drums. The members were close friends in different projects, but decided to get into the studio for fun with a new approach in mind, making music with no rules or boundaries. "Zero Fucks Given" is what they called their first day in the studio, which led to their band name ZFG. After writing and recording together on day one, the chemistry was undeniable, so the decision was made to forge their individual projects into one. By melding anthemic, hook-filled melodies within funk rock guitar riffs and groove rock beats, the band shows their ability to compact a vast array of influence and experience into a signature sound with substance, style, and soul.

As serendipitous as the making of the band may have been, ZFG runs with a different mindset when approaching the music they write by not restricting themselves to purely rock-style songs. ZFG’s music is infused in alternative, pop, R&B and a hybrid of other styles. ZFG's radio campaign recently launched for their single "Special" and landed #2 MOST ADDED spot on the Billboard (BDS) Mainstream Rock Indicator Chart and grabbed the coveted #1 MOST ADDED spot on the Foundations (SMR) Chart. "Special" lands among the Top 10 Greatest Gainers on BOTH the Billboard Indicator & Foundations Chart!

The band will embark on their first tour Spring 2019 with Adelitas Way and The Winery Dogs.  Click pic above for more info!

311 UNITY TOUR SUMMER 2017 - 311.com for info
311 is on their UNITY Tour once again this summer but this time they are supporting their stellar new release MOSAIC.  Sure to satisfy the hard core fans as well as gain some new ones, this CD has plenty of identifiable 311 traits with a lot of new sounds and some surprise twists.  For one, SA Martinez and Nick Hexum switch roles, with Martinez singing lead and Hexum rapping in places.
This is the second CD mixed by Drummer Chad Sexton and some very intricate textures ride low in the mix with the traditional energy of 311 surfing to an from their Reggae laden beach of relaxation or mayhem.  The band once again has mastered the art of anticipation and payoff with their amazing hooks, riffs and melodies.   
Arguably their best record, 27 years of playing together mixed with a symbiotic love affair with their fan base, MOSAIC pays tribute to an accomplished career.   It also acts as a launching pad for a second wave of an amazing career.   Experience, persistence and a deep well of creativity make 311 seem like they are just starting on an epic musical journey - truly exciting for their fans and future members of the HIVE.
