DVT Entertainment would like to introduce you to 5 Artists to check out and also a Flashback Artist. Each month we will be bringing you this series in our blog. Will feature National, regional and Local artists! One Hundred Thousand
Friday 2/3/2017

Fusing transcendent musicianship with a kinetic live presence, One Hundred Thousand hammers its considerable progressive influences into a sharp, polished hard rock edge. But it’s not just the band’s live show that’s drawing in new fans. Their combination of heavy rock battery and prog rock intricacy is framed by impressive individual performances and an ultimate devotion to creating memorable songs. Elevating these songs even further is the vocal production and veteran finesse of Clint Lowery (Sevendust and Dark New Day).
While the band members impress on their own, proof of their musicianship is found in the collective polish of their sound. Unlike some debuting progressive acts, each member of One Hundred Thousand is playing only to serve the song.
“Creating something greater than the sum of its parts is a common goal for the band and of mine in general,” says drummer and chief songwriter Wubbenhorst. “Having outstanding individual parts are great, but when it comes together as something greater than yourself – that’s why we do what we do.” 
Wubbenhorst is also a co-owner of Architekt Music, in Butler, NJ, which is home to music education, a live venue, artist management and a recording studio under one roof. Architekt serves as a home base to One Hundred Thousand. It’s also where Sevendust’s three latest releases were recorded, as well as recent releases from bands like Three Years Hollow, Thank You Scientist, Call Me No One, Candlelight Red, and many more.

WE don’t believe in rules…. Rules are limitations placed upon you by others through their own insecurities, fear, and lack of imagination.  WE believe in learning the rules of your instrument so you are not bound by those rules, and you are free to create.  If you were to ask the other guys in the band what this is to them, you’d probably get 5 different answers: and that’s really the point.
Music is singular to the individual: We each bring something to the table the others don’t have, and together we create something that is unique.  If you were to take a cross-section of who we are, and what we do, you’d find permutations of that which has already been done: At the core, we’re a power trio, and an MC fronts the band.  Growing up in the late 90s, early 2000’s unfortunately I remember that era of bands categorized as ‘rap-rock’ (..and zero guitar!!); yet none of those bands were equipped with a neo-soul wizard on the keys.  Conversely, there are many r&b outfits that dabble in hip hop and soul; yet, I’ve yet to see one with a lead guitar player blowing LA rock guitar through a Marshall stack.  We deal in rock, hip-hop, jazz, funk, reggae, neo-soul, and we play live.  We can take to any stage, in any circumstance and do what we do without the aid of a computer.  It’s real, and that in and of itself, I believes sets this band apart.  Soul has a story to tell, we help him tell it.  There are 5 different versions to this story, and what I’ve laid before you is simply how I see it…

Chamomile and Whiskey
Saturday 2/25/17 at The Grape Room

Chamomile and Whiskey formed in the Blue Ridge mountains of Virginia in the late winter of 2011. Marie Borgman and Koda Kerl had been traveling the country playing as a duo and returned home to Nelson County with the idea of forming a full band. After a few shows of expirementing with different musicians they quickly settled in with Tim Deibler, Brenning Greenfield, and Ryan Lavin. From the beginning the group played dozens of shows in the local bar scene, with an emphasis on high energy and passionate performance. With each of the members coming from different musical backgrounds the songs melded into a new sound... with shades of rock, americana, irish, gypsy, and old-time sounds... all played with a punk rock ferocity.
After a year of playing the local bar scene, the band signed with County Wide Records... a Charlottesville based label that worked with many of the bands influences, including Bobby St. Ours, Pantherburn, and Mister Baby. The band recorded an EP produced by Jamal Milner, in a barn in Nelson County... aptly titled The Barn Sessions it was released at the Southern in downtown Charlottesville in April 2012. The band's second year proved fruitful and saw them open for Rusted Root, Railroad Earth, J Roddy Walston and the Business, and The Hackensaw Boys. They also played their first headlining show at the Jefferson Theater.
2013 was a big year for the band. On May 24th they released their debut LP Wandering Boots at the Jefferson Theater. The album was produced by Rob Evans and has gained significant radio play in the local market. The band has toured for much of the year with performances up and down the east coast, from Vermont and New York down to South Carolina. With infectious and ever-changing live performance, the band has devoleped a reputation for engaging shows full of rowdy dancing and incredible collaborations.
2014 continued on with Chamomile and Whiskey touring more extensively than ever... making debuts in Chicago, Nashville, and New Orleans. They recorded a Daytrotter session in the summer and joined the Infamous Stringdusters at the Festy in Nelson Coutny. The band logged well over 100 shows in 2014, constatnly improving their sound. The Chamomile and Whiskey family is growing with more and more talented people collaborating with the band both on and off the stage. The future looks bright for these vagabonds, with rumors of a new recording starting soon...
