Formed in the summer of 2013, THE GUESSING GAME is the brain child of Jeff Rouse, long time bassist of Duff McKagan’s LOADED. “In the summer of 2013, I found myself with some much needed time on my hands. I knew it was time to find the right people to finally bring these songs I had been writing to life. Having spent the last 14 or so years writing, recording and touring in Loaded, it was time for me to get the ‘other’ songs I had been working on out of my head, onto tape, and see what happens.” Seeking out long time Seattle rock luminaries Kathy Moore (Brad, Satchel) Gary Westlake (Peter Frampton, Flight To Mars, Pete Carroll) Keith Ash (Star Anna, Marshall Altman) and Shawn Zellar (Redneck Girlfriend, Fires), Rouse knew this was something special – “They all breathed life and beauty into the songs and it was magnificent.” Their debut album, Holy Crow drips of heartache, regret and finally redemption. Like that first drink Friday evening to that last sermon Sunday morning. “Here’s to a little heartache, a little regret, and shitload of hope.”
With the aggressive sound of their new album, DESTROY IT ALL, THE GUESSING GAME is ready to take their place in the vanguard of the international rock scene. Fueled by the ferocious vocals of Jeff Rouse, and driven by the onslaught of heavy guitar riffs, the band has been winning legions of fans with its uncompromising stage show. “Sometimes art imitates life. The Guessing Game has been the saving grace in mine,” explains Jeff Rouse, vocals/guitar. “Shawn, Kathy, Gary and Keith lifted me up and once again followed me down a path that I needed and wanted to explore. DESTROY IT ALL is a testament to what we have become as a band and what 5 people can do emotionally, artistically, and cinematically in once again a very short time.” – Jeff Rouse
The Guessing Game
The Glenn Cannon Blues Trio was formed by Glenn Cannon (singer and guitarist of Windowpane) in early 2015. It's initial function was to bring together various groups musicians to jam, while also providing Glenn an outlet for his deep seeded blues and blues rock roots. Eventually the group grew into a solidified all star line up featuring bassist Jeff Eason (Late September Dogs,
Larry Mitchell, George Varghese, Casualty of God and more) and drummer Wesley Peterson (Culture Shock, Snakeboy, Six Foot Savage, Skagit Valley Mafia and more.) Initially the group focused on covers from artists such as Hendrix, SRV, ZZ Top, Robin Trower, Led Zeppelin etc, but has recently begun incorporating it's own material into the fold. The group hopes to release an EP of original blues rock in the near future. The GCBT's focus is killer live performances with an emphasis on groove and attitude.
Taking their name from a mythical phoenix-like songbird in Filipino folklore, The Adarna [pronounced uh-darr-nuh] are the first band to ever coin their genre as “Jet City Rock (Jet Rock).”
Their most recent single, “Superman,” gained much success in anime and comic fandom. This resulted in the placement of the song in a new superhero video game by Risen Phoenix Studios, to be released in 2016.
Their first single, “Honestly”, aired to an audience of 10 million households on MYX TV, one of the largest Asian-American networks (ABS-CBN). The band earned this opportunity by being voted into the top 6 finalist.
Tastes Like Rock Magazine states The Adarna are “rising stars of modern rock who will find their way to the top of the heap of bands out there, so make sure you keep an eye out for them. Whether you are hard-core rockers or alt or punk or even dance pop, you will love the Adarna.”
