Mac Saturn

Bursting out of Detroit, and the same studio where Greta Van Fleet got its start, Mac Saturn is music-first quintet that fuses the best of its members’ disparate influences into a high-energy and highly melodic sound that’s vibrant and infectious. With personal roots that go deep — frontman Carson Macc and guitarist Nick Barone have been playing together since they were teenagers — Mac Saturn has grooves at its heart, playing with a buoyant energy that makes dancing a command rather than an option, and with a dynamic scope that speaks to the group’s musical ambition, and precision. As drummer-turned-singer Macc puts it, “The songs are rock, but they’ve got that other thing going on — that funky, dancey, Motown, whatever you want to call it — that makes them our own thing.” Mac Saturn covers a lot of ground on its debut five-song EP Until the Money Runs Out, from the hip-swiveling “Diamonds” and “Mr. Cadillac” to the urgent punch of “Persian,” the treacly touch of “Ain’t Like You” and the rootsy restraint of “Plain Clothes Gentleman.” And Macc sings everything with the assurance and swagger that’s as much Harry Styles as MIck Jagger. As Detroit music journalist Gary Graff praised, “Mac Saturn’s muscle puts the band on a different plane than of what can be considered contemporary pop-rock.” Catch ’em on tour around North America this winter and get in on the ground floor of what will surely be the next significant band to hail from the historic heritage of the Motor City. 

Billy Tibbals

Moving from London to Hollywood back in 2014, Billy Tibbals quickly found a love for the city and its esoteric, debauched history. Combining this with his childhood obsession with British rock and roll, surrealist literature, and musicals from the 1940’s, Billy’s music presents a unique and fantastical view of the world around us. As a part of the exciting new wave of rock and roll music emerging from Los Angeles, Billy hopes to inspire the youth to get off their phones and come join in with the fun. It’s only just begun!

Rocker Billy Tibbals draws on his influences and introduces a bombastic and riveting British-inspired attitude with his debut effort Stay Teenage. Billy and his band will debut these songs on his tour with Mac Saturn in Winter 2023.
