ZEN ROBBI | THE KINGS OF CALIFORNIA

“ZEN ROBBI is the musical cure for sobriety. If you haven’t heard them, I feel sorry for you.”- Zachy Vengeance, AVENGED SEVENFOLD.

From Los Angeles, CA emerges ZEN ROBBI, the nastiest rock quartet that modern music has seen since the dawn of the millennium. For over a decade, these dudes have been terrorizing audiences across America with their rambunctious funk.

Led by the notorious pirate Captain Mic Dangerously, Scotty “Spoon” Wittenberg, Timmy “Too Tall” Baker, and Jamie ‘The Rev” Bullock, are the backbone to a beast of a band that fuses rock, soul, swing, funk, dance, punk and reggae. These boys can play and they mean business.

Over the last few years, Zen Robbi has played hundreds of shows, having shared the stage with acts such as The Smashing Pumpkins, Slash, Method Man/Redman, The Aggrolites, Iration, Barrington Levy, The English Beat, Fergie, Pepper, The Dirty Heads, Soja, Unwritten Law, and countless others. Not wasting any time making music, ZR has put out 4 full length albums and has just recently released their fifth, “Dead Man’s Hand”:

– “Dead Man’s Hand” (2016) Recorded @ 17th St. Studios
– “Lovely in the Middle: An Acoustic Collection ” (2012) Recorded @ Hollywoodstock Studios
– “Heavy Lies the Crown” (2010) Recorded @ 17th St. Studios
– “Pawn Gone King” (2007) Recorded @ Headway Music Studios
– “Company” (2005) recorded @ Village Recorder with Scott Rickett and David and Bob Ezrin.

Their music has been featured on MTV, Fox, and several action sports television shows. You can believe the pictures, you can believe the hype, but it only takes one show to see that “ZEN ROBBI truly are the Kings of California.” -Leen, Ween Magazine
Vicious Kinids
Vicious Kinids
The Vicious Kinids follow a long line of successful Long Beach musicians, but what sets them apart is the eclectic cultural backgrounds of each member and the organic way they were brought together. What began as a series of living room music jams on the Long Beach peninsula eventually founded the original members of the Vicious Kinids. From Mexico to Poland to Jamaica to Long Beach, the Vicious Kinids have an exclusive sound that is difficult to define as a singular genre. The addition of the violin to their Americana style blend brings a completely different and almost Country aspect to the traditional root Reggae base fused with the upbeat Rock and Blues element of the melodies.
Kevin Miso
Kevin Miso
Kevin Miso is a Southern California singer/songwriter. Born and raised in Long Beach, California, Miso's music is very much a product of his background and upbringing. His father is of Hawaiian descent and his mother is full-blooded Irish. When describing his music, Kevin explains, "There's a duality to my songs for sure. There's definitely that laid-back surf feel to a lot of the tunes; but there's also this contrasting, more folk-influenced element that comes out one way or another."
The youngest of four children, Miso is a natural entertainer and picked up on music right away. "As a kid, I remember the upright piano in the dining room, and guitars would always be on the couch," he recalls, "And at any family function, you HAD to perform something!" After teaching himself guitar, Kevin started to focus on his own music while attending college at UCSB in Santa Barbara.
Since then, Miso has taken to music full-time. As an independent musician he has averaged over 170 shows per year, sharing the stages with artists as varied as Augustana, Sublime with Rome, The English Beat, and John Cruz. Equipped with a loop pedal and an array of toys, Miso showcases as a multi-instrumentalist – playing guitars, bongos, djembe, keyboards, and an occasional harmonica.
Recently, Miso collaborated with producer Warren Huart (The Fray, Matisyahu, Colbie Caillat) to record his eponymous debut EP. Along with 3 studio singles, Kevin chose to feature live, filmed, in-studio takes on the EP as well. Miso explains, "I wanted to capture the feeling of my live shows… so I figured we'd just do the tracks live."
Influenced by 70s-era songwriters such as James Taylor and Paul Simon, as well as current artists like Ray Lamontagne and Jack Johnson, Kevin Miso's authenticity comes in his diversity. "It's Pop music… period. But I play with the format a bit," he admits, "You won't get the same sound over and over, cause that's just not who I am. These songs are about my life, and are in the context of my lifestyle; but there's a universal message in there that I think relates to everyone. I guess to really get it, you'll just have to listen."
