Tom Devil and the Wizard
Tom Devil and the Wizard
There is no Tom Devil, there is no Wizard. The three-piece band was formed in 2014 by childhood friends Matt Nestor on guitar and vocals, Joe Pirro on bass, and Tony Luna on drums. They spent the last year gigging around DFW while self producing and recording their first full length album “Low Tide,” which is available now on iTunes, Spotify, Bandcamp, and Youtube.

The trio spent 2016 playing DFW clubs like the Curtain Club, City Tavern, The Underpass, Liquid Lounge, and headlining the House of Blues Local Grooves, Local Brews Festival’s Crossroads Stage and just finished up an east coast tour in April 2017.

The Wizard takes their inspiration where they can find it. From artists like Phish, Neil Young, Clutch, Kings X, Talking Heads, and The Beatles. They are even influenced by the likes Bruce Lee and his Jeet Kun Do: The philosophy of having no style. The Wizard does what works.

Armstead
Armstead
Armstead was formed in 2014 in Dallas, TX by singer/songwriter Jonathan Armstead, saxophonist Marquise Jones, bassist Matthew Garcia, and drummer/percussionist Craig Kleiman. What started as just a collaboration for a Battle of the Bands competition at the Dallas House of Blues, turned into something much more, when the 4 musicians turned to each other after winning 1st place and said "Hey, we should do this ALL the time." They subsequently created their first demo in the winter of '14/'15, NOW That's What I Call Armstead, featuring the tracks "Sweet Girl," "Disaster Mastered," and "Come Outside."

Armstead began to play around DFW for the next year at bars, coffee shops, breweries, and even small music festivals. In the summer of 2015, saxophonist Marquise Jones took a short hiatus to travel with another band through Europe, which led to Armstead bringing on Jones' sax-companion from another band (Diamond Kings), Julian Ayacannoo. The new foursome continued to play around DFW, picking up momentum as they found new venues to perform. When Jones returned from Europe, Ayacannoo agreed to stay on and the band became 5 members.

In 2016, Armstead added its sixth member with the arrival of electric guitarist, Alex Neal.
