The Last Bandoleros
The Last Bandoleros
The Last Bandoleros are a four-piece outfit blending Tex-Mex, country and rock n’ roll. Their story begins in San Antonio, Texas with guitarist/producer Jerry Fuentes who, during a musical pilgrimage to Manhattan, chanced to meet New York native, singer-songwriter/producer Derek James.

Fuentes and James began collaborating in Brooklyn. But, Fuentes kept being drawn back to his native Texas to record in the same San Antonio studio where a couple of talented brothers were also emerging. Diego and Emilio Navaira, sons of Tejano music legend, Emilio Navaira, Sr., had been making a name for themselves around town for their energetic live performances and sterling vocal chops.

Fuentes decided to combine both of his universes by introducing Derek to Diego and Emilio and inviting them to joint-sessions in Brooklyn and San Antonio where riffs and lyrics began flying fast.
Dominy
Dominy is a four-piece indie rock band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Formed in July of 2016 by brothers John and Alex Dominy, the band now includes Michael Youngkin on guitar and Zak Iannitelli on drums. Dominy has quickly garnered a following and a reputation for irreverent and high energy performances. The band’s first release, Atlantic Coast, was lauded by Mike Mineo of Obscure Sound as a “consuming, very successful creation inspired by dream-pop and jangle-rock.” In the following year, however, the band decided to depart from its debut’s lush and polished production and move towards a more raw sound.


Wet Leather, Dominy’s sophomore album released January of 2018, perfectly captures the rowdiness and humor that fans have come to expect at the band’s live shows. Guitar driven, with healthy doses of Rhodes piano, gang vocals, and gritty 70s inspired riffs, Wet Leather blends the song-craft of Tom Petty with the cocksure strut of the Rolling Stones. Though it draws heavily on the sonic palette of 70s rock, Wet Leather is no simple retro ripoff. Dominy also makes time for its original jangle-pop sensibilities with songs that allude to the whimsy of indie stars The Shins and Mazzy Star. Dominy is already back in the studio, looking to release a yet untitled EP by late spring.
