Who HASN’T Rafael played with? “Hafe” is not only slinging guitars in Paul Stanley’s band, but has played with Pink, Christina Aguilera, Vasco Rossi, and was a standout house band member on “Rockstar Supernova” and “Rockstar INXS”. A Brazilian dynamo, he’s one of my favorite players on the planet. Check out his solo project “Magnetico”: it’ll blow your mind! So will our hang: you’ll be right there with us, “Backstage” with All Access Live!

My favorite Portland band (my son Nolan’s, too) is fronted by a lovely husband and wife pairing, but don’t let that lovey-dovey story fool you… this band is ferocious! Nathan Trueb is known throughout the Northwest as a gifted guitarist, wise beyond his years and lyrically? The man’s got those chops, too. When he and Miri forged their union in “Tango Alpha Tango”, their songs became anthems for all of my road trips. Once you hear the songs the first time, you’re hooked. Those of you who know – you know! Join us as we talk about their new band “White Bike”, “TAT” and the adventures that got them to where they are today.

A gifted songwriter, producer, engineer, and guitarist, this Renaissance Man is one of the most talented humans I’ve ever met. He’s got a gift in the studio, where he can craft a hit like no other, but is also a ridiculously great guitarist. Rob and I will catch up on his time in the industry, and rap about him joining and touring internationally with Dan Reed Network!

Do you think you know a lot of people in your community? Probably not in comparison to Kevin Hahn. Kev’s a jack-of-all-trades AND a master of most! His infectious smile and limitless talents make him one of the most enjoyable humans to know. We’ve toured together on SO MANY different gigs, and have hilarious stories to go along with ‘em. From singer to producer to engineer to guitarist to songwriter, ?it seems there’s nothing Kevin can’t do REALLY well in this business. The plan is to let the laughs take us where they will, but we can’t leave out stories of him producing tracks for Scorpions in his studio, and how to promote a “free rock show”.

Rock/Country star/talent agent/business-builder, Chad Bourquin and I first met last year when he brought A Flock of Seagulls into Kansas City for a gig. We hit it off right away, first because of his killer eyeglasses, then because of his dynamic personality. He’s been a successful artist using phenomenal business skills, and is determined to share those chops with other bands wanting to make more money. We’ll rap about the “Play Music Make More” program, his Dream Big Series podcast, juggling music with a (delightful) family, and how to not only survive in a tough industry, but to thrive!

One of my first arch-rivals, Jim and I were 2 Montanans aiming for the stars. Before I actually knew him, I wanted to crush his spirit. Then Facebook brought us together, and he’s one of my favorite humans on the planet. Sigh… teenagers! Now Jim’s a reputed schoolteacher in the Midlands in the United Kingdom, active in his community and continues to inspire kids musically and intellectually. We’re gonna geek out about the old days, and you can come make fun of us if you’d like to.

One-third of the most dangerous band I ever played with, Jim has all the makings of a megastar: he’s witty, gifted and bald. His “Here Comes The Bloodman” album is in my all-time top 10, as are several gigs that I played with Jimmy in the past 20 years. One of the most interesting storytellers I know… this will be a fun conversation. Check out Jim’s music at http://www.jvamusic.com.

Lee is an enigma. I heard many stories about the great Lee Shamrock before I actually saw him perform, and he lived up to the hype! A computer programming American ex-pat, Lee found a new home in Thailand to pursue his passion for music. We’ll talk about that journey, and Lee’s gonna share some of his musical humor with us all to bring levity to us when we can really use it! Come join us as we wrap our day with some laughs and music on Monday eve at 9pm PST!

Scott is one of the first singers I met in Portland in the mid-90s, and I couldn’t help but befriend this teddy bear of a man! He’s had quite a journey leading him to the hallowed halls of Nashville as an accomplished country artist. Bring your fiddle – Scotty’s got some campfire songs ready!

The Escape Club are a rock band best known for their Grammy Nominated, US #1 Hit, Wild Wild West. Their other 80’s hits, I’ll Be There, Shake for the Sheikh and Call it Poison all made the Billboard top 30. We all toured together the past coupla years and became like family. One thing I know: Livin’ in the Wild, Wild West is getting crazy. We hang out and reminisce, and you get to come along for the ride.
