Anvil, the hard-hitting Heavy Metal band out of Canada, have released thirteen studio albums over the years and have been cited as influencing many notable Heavy Metal bands including Slayer and Metallica. In 2008, Anvil! The Story of Anvil, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival to much critical acclaim.  The film documents the band’s road to success and has been hailed as “The Year’s Greatest Rock Movie” by Rolling Stone.
Best known for winning our hearts as Wonder Woman, Lynda Carter is an accomplished singer who has performed to rave reviews before sold-out crowds around the world. In addition to her long acting career, Lynda has the distinction of producing and starring in five highly-rated network television specials, several of which were Emmy-nominated. She has appeared onstage with many of the world’s most popular singers including Ray Charles, Tom Jones, Kenny Rogers, Bob Hope, George Benson and Ben Vereen.
Country artist Chris Young was the 2006 winner of the reality singing competition Nashville Star. Since this time, Young has produced two albums with chart-topping hits including “Drinkin’ Me Lonely,” “You’re Gonna Love Me,” “Voices” and “Gettin’ You Home (The Black Dress Song).”
Divide the Day are real Rock N’ Roll outlaws. The southern California quintet plays uncompromising Hard Rock with just the right mix of Sunset Strip attitude and cowboy swagger. Band vocalist Joe describes the band’s sound as “western Rock.” He adds, “We make music for cruising on your motorcycle or hanging at the bar. It’s American, and it’s real.”
It’s always a swingin’ party with Big Bad Voodoo Daddy. These Big Band sensations have become one of the Wolf Den’s most popular attractions, keeping fans on their feet with hits like, “Go Daddy-O,” “Mr. Pinstripe Suit” and “You and Me and the Bottles Makes Three Tonight (Baby).” 
Michael Lombardi, who stars in the hit TV show Rescue Me, is the founder and lead singer of Apache Stone. Although Michael has been drumming in bands from an early age, he always possessed the drive to be a front man, tirelessly searching over many years for the right group of guys to back him. By assembling the group’s current lineup: Hank Woods (guitar), David Leatherwood (bass), Nick Bacon (guitar) and Mark Greenberg (drums) – he finally achieved his goal. The talent, experience and dedication these musicians collectively share, combined with a mutual love for Rock and Roll, guarantees that Apache Stone is destined for a prolonged, productive and successful career.
