THE MUSIC

SUPER MAJIK ROBERTS

SUPER MAJIK ROBERTS

Super Majik Robots is a continuation of a project that was named Love Drunk. Hand picked by Carol Ivcich (Coordinator for all the El Monstero shows), working together with Dave AlanS to form a band that could and would be the band/entertainment for her clothing/fashion line exhibitions. The idea was to have an event that would entertain and promote the clothing line while innovating ideas of what music was and could be, while having a lot of fun doing it. It was to be six concert/runway type events and
then the project was to be over.

But, when the project was over, the band members looked at each other and said “Hey, we’re having a lot of fun, and people really dig this, it would be a bummer for us, and a shame for others not to see this show anymore.” So we tweaked it, streamlined it, and shaped it until we had a band that could do super fun, innovative, creative, energy driven shows on a weekly basis. From Costume changes, to 6 foot Penguins, a trained dancer, choreographed stage routines, or emulating police officers……You never know what’s going to happen next at a Super Majik Robots show.

And it IS a show! but yet it’s a concert too! At the heart of it all, is the music. And no one pays more attention to detail than the Robots. It doesn’t matter if it’s a crowd pleasing romper or one of their signature Mash Ups, it’s going to sound great and bring a smile to your face.

What’s a Mash Up you say? You ever hear a song that kinda sounded like another song? Well SMR takes stuff like that and mixes it all together to make something familiar, yet brand new. And have you ever heard a DJ in a club put the lyrics to one song over the top of the music of a different song? Yep, they do that too! Except, they are a band and not a DJ! When you hear Sexy Back in Black for the first time, you may get whiplash from realizing what you are listening to. (it’s a Mash Up with the music of Back in Black with Justin Timberlake’s ‘Sexy Back’ over the top)

With accomplished musicians to execute the tunes, it’s a rock’n'roll banquet of fun and mischief for the players as well as the audience participants! Jeremy Miller and Andrew Rola hold down the rhythm section: Jeremy has been in Maxtone 4, as well as the drum tech for bands like Colony and Greenwheel. Joel Dodson on lead guitar who has led original bands like Tell Tale Heart. Jaime Kennington adds female vocal flare that she fined tuned while in bands like THE X. and Dave AlanS contributes to vocals
and guitar – honing skills from bands like Social Blunder back when Pointessential CD’s still meant something, and bands like Lord Baltimore that brought the power pop!

Fun, Energetic, Aesthetic, Nostalgic, Contemporary, Whacky, sometimes even silly……..while delivering quality music. That is Super Majik Robots.

and SMR is:
Dave AlanS: Guitar and Vocals
Jaime Kennington: Acoustic and Vocals
Joel Dodson: Guitars and Vocals
Andrew Rola: Bass and Vocals
Jeremy Miller: Drums and Percussion

PETTYCASH JUNCTION

PETTYCASH JUNCTION

PettyCash is a high octane stage show appropriate for old rockers, baby rockers and everything in between. The combined years of musical experience in this band equals roughly…1,000 so you’re guaranteed to see some shredding too. But sorry folks, they won’t kick out the footlights unless it is specifically requested by those die hard aficionados. So don’t be Petty – just give ‘em some Cash and wait for your new, favorite cover band to spark a love affair with you…like Johnny & June!

WHERE’S CHARLIE?

Hi friends. We are an original band from St. Louis MO. We have played many many shows around St. Louis including The Pageant, Busch Stadium, off Broadway, Old Rockhouse, and many more. However, we also play annually for a benefit concert called Songs4Soldiers. We feature members of This Must Be The Band (Talking Heads tribute) Grood, and DjnoDJ. We come together for this special evening once a year and deliver some of your favorite hits mixed in with some hits you didn’t think were hits. Songs4Soldiers is our drummer’s not-for-profit organization. S4S benefits four different local St. Louis veterans every year with money raised from the show. So, feel free to join us at this years show Sept, 14, 2013 in Columbia, IL at Market Place Shopping Center. It is always a beautiful thing to be apart of. We hope to see you there. Love and Light.
