Barb Rocks Signs Frantic Romantic To Her Management Roster!

BarbRocksFranticRomantic.jpg

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 21, 2019

Barb Rocks announced the signing of San Jose's dreampop rockers Frantic Romantic to her management roster. Having worked with the band in their previous incarnation, as well as managing lead singer Mr. Kerosene's former band Drop Dead Sixty, it was only natural for Frantic Romantic to sign with the local band manager they already trusted and built repertoire with.

Frantic Romantic emerged from the ashes of Skyway View with an arsenal of new music, which they've been releasing monthly since October 2018. Comprised of six strangers who came together to handcraft a sonic, melodic miasma of songs, they’ve been compared to the likes of The Cure, Echo and the Bunnymen, and Psychedelic Furs. Both melodic and aggressive, they possess a sound sonically reminiscent of decades past, oozing 80’s new wave mixed with 90’s culture, with a stage presence to match. With four singles and accompanying videos released already, plus a new video and full EP coming this Spring, the band is ready to burst out of California music scene and gain traction wherever they can.

In regards to working together, Frantic Romantic's Mr. Kerosene said, "We’re very excited to announce our official partnership with Barb Rocks. Barb has a quality that few others possess: she really gives a damn. She wants musicians to succeed, and she’ll fight for bands even when they aren’t fighting for themselves. As a group, we feel our dedication to our work will not only be matched, but heightened by her services. She has a myriad of resources and she makes herself constantly available. We look forward to working with our manager and close friend, Barb Rocks."

Barb Rocks said of Frantic Romantic, "I’ve always been impressed with the drive, passion, and energy the band has to make it in this business. Not only is Frantic Romantic releasing quality songs with entertaining videos, they are also eager to learn and find new ways to garner people’s attention. Working with musicians who are actively involved in achieving their goals with a distinct creative vision is every manager’s dream, and together we can achieve new heights.”

Both Frantic Romantic and Barb Rocks are excited for this union and what the future holds, confident their working relationship will lead to prosperous years ahead.

Be sure to check out all the creative music videos Frantic Romantic has released in the last four months and be sure subscribe to their YouTube Channel! The band is currently shooting their new music video which they plan to release in March, followed by the release of their debut LP Celestina. And don’t forget to stream their music on Spotify!

Barb Rocks Quoted In Soundfly Article On Booking Better Shows

Big thanks to Angela Mastrogiacomo from Muddy Paw PR for including me in her article about booking better shows for Soundfly!

“Many bands think that just posting on social media is enough to promote the show,” shares Barbara Wahli of booking agency Barb Rocks. “Few take the time to go to other shows with flyers in hand to network and promote their upcoming show. They forget that you need to go out and meet people to get new people interested in their band and attend shows.”

Citabria Inked Management Deal with Nemesis Media Inc.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
February 3, 2016
Contact: pr@nemesismediainc.com

Alternative rock four piece Citabria has just inked a management deal with Nemesis Media Inc. Their groovy rhythmic rock has been a hit at home in Northern California, as well as gaining popularity on the international market, including a performance in Açor Talentos, Portugal’s version of American Idol. Citabria recorded their most recent full length album Exit Reality at Jingletown Recording, famous for being owned by Green Day, which garnered some radio airplay and rave reviews. The band most recently played Santa Cruz Music Festival, supported legendary Campbell band Strata at prestigious concert venue The Ritz, and graced the stage at San Jose’s premiere Rockbar Theater.

With roots in San Jose and Austin, Nemesis Media has become known for producing high quality events and for their continued support of Balanced Breakfast, the music industry networking group. Nemesis Media recently signed a number of great regional acts from the San Francisco Bay Area after joining forces with fellow promoter and talent manager Barb Rocks.

Nemesis Media VP of Artists and Repertoire Barbara Wahli said of Citabria, "Having been a fan of Citabria's music for 7 years, I knew I wanted to work with this incredibly talented band for some time, especially when I heard their newest album "Exit Reality"! Nemesis Media is lucky to work with such a technically-savvy band that has a modern and mainstream edge, whose sound grabs a hold of the listener and doesn't let go. Each band member's integrity and love for what they are doing shines through their songs and live performances, which is refreshing in the music business."

Asked what their thoughts were, Citabria as a whole said "Citabria is stoked to be partnering with Barbara Wahli & Nemesis Media. We feel very positive and unified knowing that they will guide us on this path of progress. They are exceptionally knowledgeable and it gives us a sense of relief knowing they got our backs."

Both Citabria and Nemesis Media are excited for this union and what the future holds, confident that strategic business partnerships like this will lead to prosperous journeys ahead.

For all things Citabria and Nemesis, check out nemesismediainc.com, or like the band on Facebook. Citabria is releasing a bunch of new songs and videos in 2016, as well as a monthly touring schedule, so stay tuned for details on their social media!

Nemesis Media Welcomes Sit Kitty Sit to their Management Roster!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
November 11, 2015
Contact: pr@nemesismediainc.com

Nemesis Media Inc. announced the signing of San Francisco hard piano rock duo Sit Kitty Sit.  Without a string in sight, the band consists of Kat Downs on keys and pipes, while Mike Thompson sets the stage with his percussion.  Sit Kitty Sit possess a mind blowing sound that engulfs the audience with expert keystrokes and a powerful, driving drum beat, accomplishing more as two people than a full band on stage.  None of which is surprising considering the musical tutelage of both band members, whose backgrounds and experiences have lead to some admirable accomplishments.

Speaking of joining the Nemesis family, the duo Sit Kitty Sit said collectively, “Sit Kitty Sit is proud and excited to be joining Barbara Wahli & the awesome Nemesis Media team!  We are confident they can lead the way in expanding our growth and presence in the music industry and are looking forward to a mutually beneficial relationship.”

Nemesis Media’s own Vice President Barbara Wahli said of Sit Kitty Sit, “It's amazing to see what a duo on piano and drums can do to not only grab the audience's attention so fiercely, but keep them guessing as they switch from classical to metal influences in their music.  Sit Kitty Sit's stage presence is electrifying, engaging, and technically proficient, filled with raw emotion and beautifully written songs.  I'm looking forward to working with such a professional and fiery team that will continue to thrill audiences worldwide.”

Sit Kitty Sit are incredibly busy touring Europe right now and have many shows coming right around the corner! Keep an eye out for any and all news at their website, sitkittysit.com. For more on Nemesis Media Inc., check out nemesismediainc.com.

With her leadership, Balanced Breakfast San Jose has become a breakout chapter and a model for others to achieve. Wahli has also played an important role in numerous South Bay music festivals, including Left Coast Live, Santa Cruz Music Festival, and West Valley College's West Fest, among several others.

Barb Rocks Management Roster Picked Up The Go Ahead!

I am happy to announce that The Go Ahead from San Francisco are now part of my management roster!  This talented, high-energy bluesy-rock four piece is known for their incredibly unique sound, pulling from influences such as Incubus, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Primus, Fiona Apple and many more.  They're a nice blend of powerhouse grooves, soul-shaking bass, jaw-dropping guitar lines, and melodies packed with sheer emotion, which makes this band an experience unlike any other.  Vocalist Kyna Wise is an excellent front-woman that really pulls the audience in with her "barefood" performance.

I first met The Go Ahead when they were known as Jesús and the Rabbis and they played Woodstock's Pizza stage at the debut Santa Cruz Music Festival.  They played right after Pounders, ending the night with a lovely soulful energy.  A year later, with a new band name, I ran into them again when they played with Fritz Montana, which turned out to be a wonderful reconnect leading to some awesome show collaborations between the two bands.  I've really gotten to know the band over the past year, bonding even more this past March in Austin at SXSW.  I know this collaboration which will lead to some promising things and am excited for our future endeavors together.

Please welcome The Go Ahead to the Barb Rocks family!

Old Radio Interviews

About 5 years ago, I was managing South Bay bands Jade of Days and Point 3 and working very closely with The Moderna Complex.  My friend Tavius had a DJ slot at KSCU (Santa Clara University) and we had some fun interviews with him.  Feel free to check out the recordings of those on-air radio sessions.  :-)
