John Lowery started his career as a singer-songwriter in Portland, Oregon back in the mid-nineties with his first band Hatful of Rain which he formed with Dramarama guitarist Mark Englert. At one time their drummer was Courtney Taylor-Taylor from The Dandy Warhols. His first album with Hatful of Rain got national distribution and radio play and received stellar reviews. Since 2000 John has released all solo albums - Fancy Car, I'm Going Home, Epiphany, and most recently Lucky Guy which along with Epiphany is available for sale on I-Tunes, Amazon, and CD Baby. John has played with some pretty big players over the years including Jeff Linsky (Jazz Virtuoso), John Smith (Grammy Award Producer from Nu Shooz), and Tony Snow (Drummer from Dramarama) to name a few. He currently resides in Oceanside, CA and continues to play shows as a solo artist in his own backyard in San Diego, LA, and Orange County frequently. John has also played shows internationally in Australia and most recently in Portugal. John plays mainly acoustic melodies with some electric guitar and backbeats with a laid-back feel. Some of his songs sound folksy and some sound rockish, with a little bit of blues & country from time to time. He performs regularly and not only performs songs that he has written, but also songs from such artists as Tom Petty, The Eagles, Rob Thomas, Jimmy Buffet, Kenny Chesney, Rod Stewart, The Beatles, Jack Johnson, Garth Brooks, and many more. John is also available as a duo with another guitar player or piano player.

Acoustic blues, roots of rock, folk, classic country and original material. My song "Roof of Hell" was awarded second place in the San Diego Songwriters Guild "Performing Songwriter Competition". It's inspired by the 200+ year old haiku by Kobayashi Issa : “In this world we walk on the roof of hell gazing at flowers” I have many years of experience performing live and enjoy interacting with audiences but I also know when not to.

Born in the traditional, if traditionally obscure fashion, Misdirection front man Brent Curtis’ musical interests, and talents, have progressed well beyond blowing out amps in the family garage. Following a representative rock-star path, Brent’s initial foray was a punk project influenced by Blink 182, Green Day and many of the high-energy, extreme-volume bands of the day. Brent conveys his love for the craft in every story he weaves, nurtures and delivers. Clever lyrics and song titles augment a wealth of pure talent and genuine understanding of and appreciation for music. Brent maintains the same passion that drove him to pick up his first guitar, if he is perhaps a bit less compelled to smash it into kindling.

She can also play a wide-range of covers from a variety of genres. Alyssa stands out because of her song choices, which can include music from modern artists like Imagine Dragons, Lady Gaga and Taylor Swift, to 80’s & 90's artists like Journey, The Police, and Sheryl Crow, even to 60's & 70’s artists like Creedence Clearwater Revival and the Beatles. Alyssa always makes a connection with audience members and has been told over and over again about what a great set she plays--something for everyone. At a recent performance, one guest messaged her to say, "Love your voice. Watching you right now at the San Diego County Fair. Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie would be proud to have you sing their music, you do them justice. I would buy your CD!" (Johnny D Richards, JR Studios) She also has many original songs she can perform as well, with nine songs she has already released on all music platforms, including three music videos. Alyssa is currently working on a BA in Music Industry Studies at Cal Poly Pomona. She can provide a full PA system and is willing to travel outside the San Diego area.
