Mad Margritt
Mad Margritt
Mad Margritt is an explosive, high energy rock band based out of Atlanta, Georgia. The band consists of Eddie Smith on vocals, Mark Cook on guitar, Matt Aebi on bass and Tod Williford on drums. The band released their debut cd COLD SWEAT in October 1997. Several radio stations across the United States and Europe began playing tracks from COLD SWEAT and before long it caught the attention of Delinquent Records who offered the band a recording contract.

In July 1999, Mad Margritt released the cd IN THE NAME OF ROCK on Delinquent Records. It was followed by the bands first US tour. During the 1999-2001 tour, Mad Margritt opened up shows for several noted acts including Ratt, Cinderella, Great White, Warrant, Slaughter, Quiet Riot, Skid Row, The Bullet Boys, Tesla, Every Mothers Nightmare and Pretty Boy Floyd. They were also featured in several national publications including Metal Edge and Spin Magazine.

While performing at the Ultra-Sound Music Conference in Las Vegas Nevada, Mad Margritt caught the eye of Perris Records president Tom Mathers. Tom offered the band a deal to release their next cd on Perris and added Mad Margritt to an already impressive roster. Perris Records has released and distributed cd’s by Warrant, LA Guns, Enuff Z Nuff, Ratt's Stephen Pearcy, Pretty Boy Floyd, Helix, Love/Hate, Every Mothers Nightmare, Roxx Gang and several others.

In June 2002, Mad Margritt was featured on the Perris Records compilation BON APPETITE: A TRIBUTE TO THE BON SCOTT YEARS OF AC/DC. The cd also featured members of Guns N Roses, Ted Nugent, Britny Fox, Dangerous Toys, Tyketto, Every Mothers Nightmare and original AC/DC vocalist Dave Evans. Later that year the band released their next full-length cd entitled NEW SENSATION and then embarked on another US tour that included shows with Kiss, Poison, Whitesnake, Warrant, Slaughter, Great White, Bret Michaels and Winger.

In July 2004, Mad Margritt was featured on the Perris Records compilation HOLLYWOOD HAIRSPRAY VOLUME 3. The cd also featured members of Kix, Pretty Boy Floyd, Tigertailz and Crashdiet. In January 2005, the band released a "best of" cd entitled STRAIGHT THROUGH THE HEART. During the 2005 Straight Through The Heart Tour, Mad Margritt performed shows with Poison, Ratt, Cinderella and Ratt's Stephen Pearcy. 

The bands next cd was entitled ANIMAL. It was released September 25, 2007 on Perris Records and was distributed in the USA by Select-O-Hits, The UK by Plastic Head Music, Italy by Andromeda, Greece by Soundforge Music Group, Spain by Border, The Netherlands by Bertus, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium by ZYX Music.

The cd got airplay on several radio stations across the United States and Europe and was featured on XM Radio's hard rock channel The Boneyard. The bands video for the song LOADED GUN got airplay on several television shows across the country and was named “2008 Video Of The Year” on the show Rocknation TV. 

During the 2008 Animal Tour, Mad Margritt performed shows with Queensryche, Dokken, Skid Row, Tesla, The Bullet Boys, LA Guns, Faster Pussycat, Bang Tango and Helix. The highlight of the tour was performing in front of 30,000 people at the South Texas Rock Festival. The following year the band performed at several other festivals including the Muscle Racing Festival in Sarasota, Florida, the SA Rocking Summer Fest in San Antonio, Texas and Rocklahoma in Pryor, Oklahoma.

Mad Margritt released their next cd entitled SHOW NO MERCY on July 6, 2013. The cd was released once again on Perris Records. The band performed primarily in the southeast following the release of SHOW NO MERCY and opened up shows for Saliva, Candlebox, LA Guns, Firehouse and The Georgia Satellites. 

Their current cd LOVE, HATE AND DECEPTION hit stores on September 16, 2016 and was released worldwide on Perris Records. To help promote the new cd, the band has just released a video for the song LIAR. On February 11, 2017 the band performed in Hollywood, California for the Pre-Grammy Awards Rockfest held at the world famous Viper Room on Sunset Strip.  
Zangaro
Zangaro
Atlanta musician Vince Zangaro (founder of Alzheimer’s Music Fest) is a man with a musical mission. After his dad was diagnosed with Alzheimers, Zangaro left his corporate job to care for his ailing parent. The lessons within this dynamic have re-inspired Zangaro’s love for music and his natural songwriting abilities have blossomed. Zangaro pens story-songs about his struggle to understand his father’s Alzheimers and the challenges... they face together. Life themes of addiction, illness and survival surface in Zangaro’s songwriting. He is joined by some of Atlanta’s top musicians–Bradd Poole on lead guitar, Matthew Trautwein of Bill Gentry Band, Karma Lingo 2.0 and The Lost Boys on violin, mandolin and banjo, Alex Rodiek on trumpet, Paul Arredondo on bass, and Jonathan Pace on drums. Zangaro’s music is often compared to Dave Matthews or Red Hot Chili Peppers. A stunning vocalist, Zangaro sounds much like Smashing Pumpkins Billy Corgan. Zangaro’s musical mission is to promote Alzheimers awareness and bring hope and help to the disempowered and misunderstood.
Michael Preston and The Lady Killers
Michael Preston and The Lady Killers
Atlanta rock-blues Michael Preston and the LadyKillers take the blues back to the late, great fifties sounds of Chuck Berry, Jerry Lee Lewis and BB King, blending authentic golden era blues sounds with the soulful Texas blues of Albert King and Stevie Ray Vaughan.
