Jeremiah & the Red Eyes and Earl Flores & Holy Toledo! Band at the Mint Jan. 4

Jeremiah & The Red Eyes followed by Earl Flores & Holy Toledo! Band @ The Mint, Tuesday, January 4th

Jeremiah & The Red Eyes*
Los Angeles based artist Jeremiah (Sammartano) and the Red Eyes started in the Southern California coffeehouses and bars, picking up sounds and ideas along the way and later mixed them up with the song ideas in his head. What came out was a blend of the Delta Blues and old folk songs, Tom Waits and the Replacements, some Willie Nelson twang and some good old garage rock and roll - and a whole lot of other things - Delta blues and twangy grooves, one reporter called it.

2004 saw the release of Red Eyed and Restless on Bull Stud Records which had songs that were played on various U.S. stations including the syndicated show, "Altville," and across Europe.

They have been well supported by the Americana scene in Los Angeles and have shared the stage with Dead Rock West, Bob Woodruff, and Mike Stinson – to name a few - and also with David Olney and Tommy Womack in Nashville. After spending a year in Nashville, Jeremiah is back in Los Angeles, and spent the summer and fall racking up thousands of miles, touring all over the USA in anticipation of his new recording titled, Under Your Spell.
