Austin Bike Zoo
The Bike Zoo presents a magical show for people of all ages, thrill seekers and corporate clients.  It’s readymade for festivals. You can feel a bit of what the experience is like through our live videos. We love to book city events, festivals, EDM and parades.
“Circuit of The Americas would like to thank Austin Bike Zoo for being an unforgettable part of the United States Grand Prix. Their creations reflected the unique culture of Austin and were clearly a delight to our guests.‚ÄĚ – Dominic Iacano, CMO, November 5, 2014
Flam Chen
Flam Chen has been creating, performing, and touring new circus and fire theater since 1994. They create a  dazzling public spectacle merging daredevil acrobatics, pyrotechnics and a mastery of light, air and fire.

Flam Chen’s work ranges from the intimate to large scale. Residencies include company designed workshops, combining student talent, troupe talent and community culminating in spectacular works that resonate with locally derived history, energy and depth.

We have several shows to choose from for this season in every price range.
“An adventure from the get-go‚Ķthis gig is pure fun and fantasy casting an atmosphere of wonderment‚ÄĚ – Deni Kasrel, City Paper Philadelphia.
‚ÄúThey have developed a beautiful habit of ever expanding the public’s imagination, continually taking us deeper and deeper within it‚Äôs layers, leaving us breathless.‚ÄĚ – Tucson Model Magazine

THE FLESHTONES ARE AVAILABLE FOR YOUR PRIVATE PARTIES!

FTliveEuro

Did you realize you canbook The World’s Greatest Party Band for your private event! Just ask.¬†The Fleshtones are Peter Zaremba (vocals, harmonica, & organ), Keith Streng (guitar & vocals), Bill Milhizer (drums & vocals), and Ken Fox (bass & vocals). Based in Brooklyn, New York, the quartet’s origins lie just a few miles north in Queens, where in 1975 Streng and original bass player Marek Pakulski rented “The House,” as it was infamously known, and found instruments down in the basement. To¬†quote Keith: “How and why The Fleshtones started was that there was a place to do it!” Countless “Blue Whale Bashes,” Lower East Side sightings, and an endless string of gigs and records later, The Fleshtones continue to record and perform with a wit, passion, and energy that few bands can top.

FLESHTONES ROCKING UK!

The Fleshtones have been playing music for years¬†-wait, make that¬†DECADES! To someone who has been alive all of only two decades, this is quite the feat. Even with their constant rocking, some fans are still just getting the chance to see these rock legends for the first time! On June 3rd, at¬†The Camden Underworld one dedicated fan of 30 years finally got to rock out with The Fleshtones. Read his¬†full recap of the show, which he describes¬†as a, “remarkable blur of multi-coloured energy,” on the Retro Man Blog.¬†¬†

Our hearts fill with glee when we are able to connect bands with dedicated fans to create an experience to last a life time. A young Roggie, reminds us of a conversation with her mom: “Regardless how big a band may be or how many shows they’ve played, there will always be new fans to be made and old fans who haven’t had the chance to see them.” How can we help you see your favorite RajiWorld Artist? Lets make memories to last a lifetime.

WE ARE SO PROUD OF OUR ROSTER!

ABZ_Rolling Stone

We are so proud of our roster, representing with class and grace and much rock and roll in the midst of utter chaos! What a wild ride this year.

AKINA ADDERLEY & THE VINTAGE PLAYBOYS¬†¬†“Just a few moments of unforgettable jam ‚ÄúAttitude‚ÄĚ and you‚Äôll be hooked on this nine-member Austin soul band. Frontwoman and songwriter Adderley is a commanding, joyous force.¬†” –¬†DEBORAH SENGUPTA STITH – AUSTIN 360

“An amazing triple bill on Saturday with¬†Nakia¬†Reynoso of TV show,¬†The Voice, SXSW performing artist,¬†Akina Adderley¬†and the consistently amazing,¬†Hard Proof¬†playing original Afrobeat songs joined forces at The Mohawk for an extended dance party. An unusually pleasant Texas evening segued into a an all-out jam beginning with Hard Proof early to get the crowd moving, then Akina Adderley and the Vintage Playboys then headliner, the always entertaining, Nakia. ” –¬†GREG ACKERMAN – AUSTIN CONCERTS EXAMINER

THE AUSTIN BIKE ZOO¬†“Austin is a serious biking city, as anyone trying to dodge drunk cyclists on a Saturday night knows. But the scariest bike we saw during SXSW is the Rattlesnake, an 80-foot, 34-wheel contraption that seats six riders in its belly and looks kinda like a Chinese New Year’s dragon might if you chewed on one mushroom too many. It’s one of the fantasies made by the Austin Bike Zoo, a crew of puppeteers, bike builders and theater types whose intent is mainly to blow minds, which in fact they do quite well.” ¬†– ROLLING STONE¬†

“In between show artists like the Austin Bike Zoo as living thing, young and dynamic artists and digital scene in the Texas capital is.” – MARCUS SCHULER
¬†–¬†BAYERISCHER RUNDFUNK

THE BLACK WATCH  
‚ÄúSounds like an absolutely, delightful, wonderful little jangle pop band.” – CARTER DELLORO¬†– OVERLOAD

“Their guitarist, Steven Schayer, is really, really good and really fun to watch.‚ÄĚ – ROBIN SINHABABU¬†– OVERLOAD

ELIZABETH MCQUEEN¬†“Austin favorite Elizabeth McQueen was with the legendary band Asleep at the Wheel for eight years before making the decision to go solo. With her sultry, beautiful voice she is already making quite a splash on her own with her new CD, The Laziest Remix. She has already been featured in the Austin Chronicle, Texas Monthly, and Austin 360. With a national tour underway, Elizabeth will be playing her official showcase with The Brothers Lazaroff on Thursday, March 13th at Shotguns at 9PM.” – GINA SIGILLITO – AUSTIN LOCAL MUSICIAN EXAMINER
 
“Making name for herself as one of the music city’s most infectious voices. Known for her beautiful and timeless vocal style and buoyant and joyous live shows, she quickly became the one one to watch upon her arrival in Texas. One short year after settling in Austin, she was named by the Austin Chronicle as a young musician to watch.” -DIANE SCOTT – THE CONTINENTAL CLUB
 

THE FLESHTONES¬†¬†‚ÄúThe Fleshtones demolished the divide between stage and audience during “Real Good Time Together,” with band members stepping deep into the crowd and leading it through the song’s chorus well after they stopped playing their instruments.‚ÄĚ – GARY GRAFF – BILLBOARD

¬†‚ÄúThe veteran garage rock act tore into “Real Good Time Together,” an incendiary performance complete with gray-haired crowd-surfing and an audience sing-along that continued after the band stopped playing.‚Ä̬†– JOE LYNCH – FUSE

‚ÄúThe ageless¬†Fleshtones¬†marching up the down the theater’s aisles leading the audience in a singalong to “Real Good Time Together”‚ÄĚ – JIM TESTA –¬†jerseybeat.com


NAKIA 
“20 Artists You Must See at SXSW This Week” – PLEDGE MUSIC

RAINA ROSE¬†“On Instagram, Steve Poltz summed up the highs and lows of a beautiful night gone horribly awry: SXSW- hectic. 1-saw Raina Rose play her official showcase last night. She had a full band and it was REALLY good. Loved it. Her voice equals beauty.” – MATTHEW T. HALL – UT SAN DIEGO¬†

“SXSW Interview: Raina Rose,¬†Folk music ‚Äėonly exists in a community” –¬†WILLIAM HARRIES GRAHAM – AUSTIN CHRONICLE

STEVE WYNN “Other significant highlights included Spandau Ballet’s rich treatment of “Satellite of Love,” Sean Lennon’s unrehearsed by still affecting “What Goes On” and Steve Wynn & the Miracle 3’s “Coney Island Baby.” ¬†¬†
–¬†GARY GRAFF – BILLBOARD
 
‚ÄúBut the moments of musical transcendence were much more plentiful and thoroughly unforgettable. Among them: Steve Wynn with a heartbreaking ‚ÄúConey Island Baby‚ÄĚ and, fronting the Baseball Project as Mike Mills of R.E.M. and my old friend Linda Pitmon held down the rhythms, an epic, eardrum-threatening ‚ÄúSister Ray‚ÄĚ‚ÄĚ – JIM DEROGATIS – WBEZ 91.5, CHICAGO
 
‚ÄúSteve Wynn earned his place in rock history during the Eighties with the Dream Syndicate, a leading light of L.A.’s Paisley Underground psych-pop movement. Since then, he’s enjoyed an acclaimed solo career, though he’s currently savoring a well-received Dream Syndicate reunion‚ÄĚ –¬†MICHAEL TOLAND – AUSTIN CHRONICLE
 
SWM3¬†‚ÄúSteve Wynn & the Miracle 3 rode waves of dynamic ups and downs beautifully throughout the cinematic ‚ÄúConey Island Baby.‚ÄĚ –¬†Peter Blackstock – AUSTIN 360
 
 
¬†‚ÄúI think that SW+M3 are the best rock band out there.¬† This short but intense and cathartic set just proves that point. A home run!‚ÄĚ – ELIOT –¬†nowiveheardeverything.com
