James Veck-Gilodi – Deaf Havana


"The growl and distortion you can get is mental...the amount of variation you can create from this thing is amazing.”

James Veck-Gilodi is a founding member and guitarist/vocalist of the Norfolk, UK-based rock band, Deaf Havana. The group has built a loyal fan base after five studio albums and a high-energy live show, and is one the few British bands to achieve a top 10 album in 2018 with their most recent release, Rituals.

Reece Scruggs – Havok


"What really knocks it out of the park for me, is having a rhythm tone that's really punchy...
and I've been able to come up with some really searing, ripping lead tones."

Born, raised, and residing in Winchester, VA, Reece takes inspiration from his surroundings and upbringing. From outlaw country, bluegrass, rockabilly, Southern rock and blues to stripped-down rock and roll, instrumental shred records, and the many genres of metal, Reece throws it all in his playing for good measure. The undisputed heavyweight champion of the “Shred Club,” this gunslinger is ready to duel. And he doesn’t wear a white hat.
