Born in Hollywood and raised in an environment of musicians, songwriter–guitarist Tony Gilkyson originally started recording as a boy with his father, Terry Gilkyson, a composer for Walt Disney and a prominent folksinger/songwriter in his own right. Artists he has played and recorded with include Lone Justice, Sam Phillips, Duke McVinnie, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Alice Cooper, Bob Dylan, Kris Kristofferson, K.D. Lang, Mark Olsen, Shane MacGowan, Ramsey Midwood and Mike Stinson. He also has played guitar on numerous film soundtracks including the Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line, as well as The Big Lebowski, Don’t Come Knockin’ and All the King’ s Men, with producer T Bone Burnett.

Eleni Mandell, likened to PJ Harvey and Tom Waits, garnered praise from The New Yorker for her album Wishbone produced by Jon Brion.

Gwendolyn, multifaceted, embraces roles from songwriter to activist, while Quazar, crafted by Brandon Jay, is a fusion of Rocky Horror and Phantom of the Paradise, with influences ranging from Mungo Jerry to Parliament/Funkadelic.

This show found a home at Healing Force of the Universe after the iconic Aztec in Monrovia suddenly stopped hosting shows.
