Fireside Prophets
"What I live for, What I die for.. The only thing in life i really need to try for.. The only thing that makes me free, is the rhythm playing inside of me"

Laid back, soaked in Florida sunshine and all twisted up in reggae-rock - this is Boca Raton’s own Fireside Prophets. Following the success of their debut EP Resinate, the dynamic three-piece group is back in the studio to prepare a full-length album for release in late 2014. Part chilled-out reggae, part slinky rock and all attitude, this is the next up and coming band to keep your eyes on.

While combining classic elements of reggae with hip hop rhythms and the crunchy attitude of 90s grunge, Fireside Prophets coined their own brand of “Dirty South Swamp Rock.” Ideal for fans of Slightly Stoopid, Authority Zero, The Expendables, Sublime or Rebelution, the group consistently pushes the limits while transporting the listener to the fun-loving, palm tree dotted warm shores of Florida.

Now a mainstay at area clubs and music venues, Fireside Prophets are consistently featured on FAU college radio while garnering airplay on Pandora and Jango. While continuing to ride the wave set off by the release of Resinate in late 2012, their upcoming debut LP sees the band pushing their unique blend of music to new heights as they continue to grow.

"Fireside Prophets craft catchy lyrics, worthy of being sung in the shower, that blend magically with their guitar riffs which rival the expert level on Guitar Hero and a drum beat that stitches everything together. But what’s especially impressive isn’t just their cool vibe and musical skill. It’s also their passion for music – something the industry can’t manufacture," said Michelle Ferrand of University Press - FAU.

Fireside Prophets was founded in 2008 at Florida Atlantic University by a trio of like-minded music fanatics; Justin “JD” D’Alfonso (guitar/lead vocals), Oren “OG” Gross (bass/piano/backing vocals) and Travis “T-Shmeet” Schmeider (drums/backing vocals). They have also appeared on a pair of BandCamp compilations; CompOWLation: Volume 1 and Homegrown: From The Sunshine State.

Resinate is available now from digital retailers such as iTunes, Amazon and CD Baby, with streaming audio available on the band’s official Facebook, ReverbNation and BandCamp pages. Keep up with all the latest news including tour dates and album updates by following them on Facebook or Twitter and subscribing to their mailing list. Keep your eyes peeled for the Fireside Prophets debut LP later in 2014.

No Hard Feelings
Rock,blues,funk,jam music.

Three talented teens who share an intense appreciation for some of the greatest bands in rock n roll have come together to pay tribute both through performing cover songs and writing original music that resonates with influence from Hendrix, the Grateful Dead, The Allman Brothers Band, Dave Matthews Band, The Beatles and many more.

The three originally met as students at the School of Rock Coral Springs. LaManto (14) and Peacon (14) were previously members of THE MIND MANIFEST, a psychedelic blues band that performed regularly over the past two year at local venues. They disbanded during the summer of 2014 when drummer Jared Zim moved north to attend college. Hartman (13) previously played with SINISTER SOCIETY, a high energy heavy metal band.

Authentic Acoustic Americana

For the love of authentic quality music, four musicians came together to form MADEIRA an all-acoustic cover band playing vintage and modern classics in an unplugged format. Similar to the Coffeehouse Channel 31 on SiriusXM and MTV’s Unplugged, MADEIRA takes some of rock’s favorite songs and throws in some pop, funk, folk & a heavy dose of Americana. MADEIRA breaks them down to their bare essentials, performed on a variety of wooden acoustic instruments and featuring harmonized vocals.
MADEIRA finished up last year with a bang, performing at our first festival – ART FEST at Broward College. We played a bunch of house parties including a boat parade party on the Intracoastal and a Christmas party in Pompano Beach. And we returned to FACE Restaurant in Hollywood.
We're honored to be asked to return to this year's APR benefit concert.
Looking forward to many more opportunities to play out in 2015!
