40 Watt Hype
40 Watt Hype
In the center of California, a culture that is the underbelly of LA and San Francisco. from the bass bumping out of the ’84 Cutlass to the backyard fiestas, the music of 40 Watt Hype is created—live Hip Hop cultivated from the seeds of a favorite dusty Soul record with a Latin b side.
Born and influenced by the streets of Fresno, 40 Watt Hype started (out of necessity) at a backyard party by front man Aaron Wall and as soon as the music started, the people danced and embraced this new sound. Wall—songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer—a second generation Dutchman from Holland, grew up listening to a multitude of styles and forms of music, from R&B to Hip Hop to Latin. When you hear and see Wall perform, you can feel the love and influence of the environment he is the product of, breaking stereotypes, as he states, “nothing turns heads quicker than seeing a white boy sing and rhyme in Spanish”. As a kid in Eastside Fresno, he learned to speak Spanish from hearing it throughout the neighborhood and from kids at school, and during high school in Fresno’s urban Westside, R&B and Hip Hop further impacted itself on his musical journey.
The Morning Drive
The Morning Drive
The Morning Drive was officially born in Fresno, CA in July of 2014, but their conception resides in the attic of a San Luis Obispo apartment in 2011. It was there that Daniel (vocals) met Alex (guitar) while jamming with family and friends. Cousin Adam (drums) would occasionally visit and join to create fond memories and inspiring tunes. Three years later, the final pieces would come together in Fresno with the addition of their studly friend Brian on the bass and talented vocalist Brandalyn, in response to a request to open for a friend's band at the historic Tokyo Garden in Downtown Fresno. More than anything, The Morning Drive loves any excuse to bring family and friends together for an inviting, stellar experience with their laid-back attitude and funk-folk-rock-pop-central coast inspired tunes.
The Tough Love
The Tough Love
Originally formed as a fun side project for veterans of Fresno's eclectic music scene, the Tough Love has quietly become a favorite in local hotspots like Gazebo Gardens. They continue to delight audiences throughout California with their soulful fusion of r&b, funk and rock and are sure to get you out of your seat and on your feet.
