From VOX:

The unapologetically herself rock guitarist, Alexx Calise, of BATFARM joins us in celebrating #WomensHistoryMonth. Growing up in a family of musicians, from violinists to luthiers, meant that Calise was no stranger to the greats of the industry! Inspired to start playing music from listening to her father's epic renditions of ""Michelle"" by the Beatles, & The James Bond theme song, Alexx felt music in her blood & bones and by age 11 she picked up the guitar and ran with it. During the late 80s & early 90s, the grunge era emerged & became one of the biggest genres to impact the world of music. From Soundgarden to The Toadies, the raw edginess of the genre stood out & Alexx couldn't get enough!

Aside from Joan Jett & Nancy Wilson, Alexx wished there were more female musicians she could have looked up to growing up, however, today, Alexx is thrilled to see the increased number of female artists dominating the industry such as Lizzy Hale, & Tash Sultana as well as Laura B. Whitmore, a veteran marketer of the musical instrument and audio industries & founder of The Women's International Music Network! Alexx is an ambitiously raw singer/guitar player who saw being a female rocker as something different in a good way, and as an up-and-coming musician, used it to her advantage! She didn't let anyone get in the way of her true passion & career goals. Bottom line, there are no excuses, just absolutely bring it & be you!

Originally a fan of Fender, Alexx had picked up a Gibson guitar and fell in love. For an amp, the VOX AC30 became her go-to for its natural distortion as a stand-alone amp as well as the tremolo for the sound it gives on recordings you can't find in any other amp!

We are very excited to see what 2023 has in store for Alexx Calise as well as her band Batfarm, who is releasing a new single called ""3”

Dirtbag rocker FRANK PALANGI to play Woodstock 50th anniversary

Dirtbag rocker FRANK PALANGI to play Woodstock 50th anniversary

ROAD TO WOODSTOCK - Dirtbag Endorsed Artist FRANK PALANGI- Upstate NY rock recording artist has recently landed the opportunity to travel to Kansas to perform as a main act on Aug 16th 2019 at the upcoming iconic 50th Woodstock Music Festival -- sharing the stage with worldwide acts including Jefferson Starship, Dave Evans from AC/DC and more! Frank has been continuously pursuing his dream of making music for a living for several years now. "No Plan B" as he states. You may have caught him playing opening for national artists such as 3 Doors Down and Aaron Lewis or festivals including RockNDerby and Uproar or in a local bar or at a community outdoor event. Palangi wanted to become a career musician and singer-songwriter since he was a teenager, and began on this path by releasing his debut self-titled EP in 2011. Influenced by bands from the 80's (Metallica, Ozzy, Def Leppard, Megadeth), 90's (Creed, Godsmack, 3 Doors Down), 2000's (Daughtry, Three Days Grace, Shinedown), he fuses rock n' roll with a post-grunge sound to sculpt his positive, clean musical motifs. Grounded from a solid support system from his upbringing while his motivations are centralized around positivity and not the temptations of a stereotypical rockstar lifestyle. From an early childhood he learned to adapt to his chronic medical illness that impacted his decisions in his everyday life, turning it all around as a force to bring his dreams into reality saying "I have no Plan B backing down on my dreams." Frank is the recipient of an LA Music Award nomination, three Akademia Music Awards, an Unsigned Only Semi-Finalist Award, WIGWAM Online Radio Best Male Artist Award as well as a local Best Acoustic Solo Artist in the region with the Post Star/Chronicle and Metroland Magazine. - Booking now for opening slots, acoustic gigs, events, fundraisers, recording work, voice overs:
