GeeGee Bradley has been a staple in the Dayton Music Scene since the 90’s. Playing in bands such as Legbone, the Jackalopes, GeeGee’s Punk Rock All Stars, Viceroy Kings, as well as being the Marketing and Promotions Manager for Turnbuckles and Brews.

See GeeGee this Friday the 13th
Knavery is an alternative rock band based out of Dayton, OH. They join @theizzyrock at DATV to discuss the release of their new EP, “Grown” being released on September 6, 2019.
We learn the origin of the band, touring, rig rundown, and hear the new EP.
Shrug have been making music in Dayton since the 90’s. @theizzyrock gets the lowdown of their origin story, rig rundown, and we discuss their new album, “Easy Is The New Hard” on Magnaphone Records.
Shrug return with their proverbial “White Album”…or perhaps their “Sandanista”. Easy is the New Hard isn’t decidedly Beatlesesque and though The Clash have always been an influence, it doesn’t really sound like their 1980 triple album. Rather, it’s comparable as a stylistically diverse effort that spans multiple sides of vinyl and explores the band’s deepest roots and most adventurous writing. Songwriter/guitarist Tod Weidner clearly enjoyed a major bout of inspiration following the release of 2016’s Age of Ashes, and it’s been captured here.
In truth, it’s still a solid rock album at its core and remains faithful to what the band does best. Fans aren’t going to feel alienated here. However, the influences of glam, psychedelia and Laurel Canyon have never been more evident. As Weidner puts it, “there is a lot of ‘swirl’ on this record.” It’s fun, fresh, instantly classic, and still wholly Shrug.
Young Reese Dude @937ReeseDude is an independent hip-hop artist from Dayton, OH. He stops by DATV to chat with @theizzyrock about growing up in Dayton, influences, and we discuss the album “Reese”, which released on 6-14-2019 and can be streamed everywhere.
Born and raised in Desota Bass Courts, a housing project in Dayton, Ohio, Raysean (YoungReeseDude) Reese was the oldest of his mother’s children and the second oldest of his father’s. He attended Macfarlane Middle School where he played football until he suffered a season ending injury. During that time Reese’s father noticed him rapping and suggested his son start writing some of these lyrics down. With a growing confidence Reese begins freestyle battling at Meadowdale High School where he picked up the name YoungReeseDude and soon everyone would call him that. YoungReeseDude would soon grow very popular on the battling circuit and would leave school to go battle MC’s at other schools. During that same time ReeseDude was introduce to his father childhood friend Christian “Mouzetrapp” Gates who was also and MC and a recording engineer. They got together in the studio and ReeseDude recorded his first mixtape The Natural and later on an assortment of other mixtapes. ReeseDude is currently and always working on new material and his music can be found on various websites such as soundcloud.com, reverbnation.com, Datpiff.com etc… He credits some of his influences to being Jay-Z, Biggie Smalls, Tupac, and Big Daddy Kane.

John Dubuc stops by DATV to chat with @theizzyrock about his new album from Magnaphone Records released in June 2019, childhood memories, influences, rig rundown, and much more.
The singer-songwriter has certainly come a long way from the precocious 13-year-old who formed the punk band, the Obvious, with his buddies in the summer of 1983. That group released two singles, an EP and an album before dissolving unceremoniously in Chicago in the mid-1990s.
Dubuc spent a decade in the Windy City, where he played in the bands John Henry’s Train and Face For Radio. After returning to the Dayton area in the early 2000s, he performed solo and as a sideman in other groups but resisted forming another band until 2017.
Dubuc recently discussed the making of “Where Have I Been All Your Life?” and his roots rock group, the Guilty Pleasures, which features Rich Reuter (guitar, keyboards), Tom Rastikis (bass) and Brian Hoeflich (drums).
Where Have I Been All Your Life? It’s a valid question coming from long-time favorite, but under-recorded, song smith John Dubuc.
Well, for many, this master of wit and melody has been a familiar voice at songwriter nights, coffee shops and late-night bars in southern Ohio for most of the time they’ve been catching live music. There’s just never been a record…
Fortunately, a couple years ago, Dubuc formed a fruitful recording partnership with bassist and studio wiz Tom Rastikis and a cast of heavy hitters began buzzing around the sessions. What we get with the debut is a fully realized and meticulously curated collection of Dubuc’s best work embellished by some of the best players in the Dayton, OH music scene. It’s familiar and rooted in Midwestern rock and roll heritage from the Twin Cities, through Chicago, past the band’s front porch and just slightly reaching down south, but also fresh and unlike anything you’re likely to have heard unless you’ve been fortunate enough to catch the recently formed Guilty Pleasures.
The ability to weave subtle humor with bittersweet, heartbreaking melodies is perhaps Dubuc’s greatest strength and while the expertly arranged music has abundant intrigue to captivate listeners alone, it’s his penchant for unpretentious, deadpan witticism that keeps us hitting “play” repeatedly.

Salvadore Ross returns with their second album to chat with @theizzyrock about rig rundown, childhood influences, deep fakes, and favorite concert films.
Salvadore Ross is a fuzz-inspired, psychedelic rock and roll band from Dayton, OH. Equal parts space rock, heavy greasy riffs and 1960s style songwriting. The band consists of founder K.R. Byrum of The White Soots/The Professors, Kyle Sweney of Della Rocco/C. Wrights Parlour Tricks and Matt “Friz” Szafranski of Gromulous, Mama, and Electric Smoke. The band’s name is derived from a 1964 episode of the television series “The Twilight Zone” entitled, “The Self-Improvement of Salvadore Ross”, which emphasizes the importance of compassion over selfishness.
