THE DIP (www.thedipmusic.com)
“Hailing from Seattle, The Dip is an electrifying seven-piece ensemble that melds vintage rhythm and blues and modern pop with “impeccably crafted, 60’s-steeped soul” (KEXP). The group quickly gained notoriety throughout the Pacific Northwest for their eminently danceable live shows that feature the powerful vocals of frontman Tom Eddy (Beat Connection), bolstered by the deep pocket of their unmistakably detailed rhythm section, and the spirited melodies of “The Honeynut Horns”.

THE FOREIGN ARM
Out of mutual adoration and an earnest desire to collaborate with each other, five artists of the San Antonio music scene came together. After a couple short months of song writing, they played their first ever gig in the unlikely setting of the BiblioTech, the country’s first all-digital public library. More shows and a desire for a fuller sound saw the addition of two more members; just one last element was needed to describe this powerful fusion of seven individuals that brought poetic ballads, intricately placed harmonies, and symphonic fanfare together. Lead vocalist & guitarist Nicholas Blevins reached into his inner depths and dubbed the ensemble ‘The Foreign Arm’ to describe the constant, collective journey of life, and our status as travelers through it. The Foreign Arm continued as such with the aim of reaching out to transcend spaces in the universal language of music.

Alamo City Soul Club:
Started in 2011 by Rambo Salinas, Jeff Blaggard , and Alex LaRotta. It was created to help give a place in San Antonio to hear real vinyl records dedicated to chicano soul,blues and R&b from the 60s and 70s.

After a 6 month stint creating the soul club Rambo moved back to Minneapolis, and Jeff and Alex were at the helm. Alex would soon move to Houston,Tx to help with the Fistful Of Soul night and Jeff would move to Oakland.

Within the 2 years and few months on hiatus Rambo has returned and has brought new members into the mix to help give a resurgence to the soul scene in San Anto. We welcome Hector Gallegos and Dj Plata to Alamo City Soul Club with open arms. We also hope to bring San Anto new guest djs and even more new records to help get the dancefloor burning. See you in 2016!
