The Redifusion is a “rock potluck” where we bring together 25 members picked from 25 different bands to form 6 new groups with new names that will perform for the first time together on stage at the event.

Each of the new groups meet on the morning of the event to write two original songs, learn one cover and come up with a band name. That night they perform at Firecreek Coffee Company – Flagstaff in front of their fans, friends and peers for charity!

25 musicians
25 different bands
5 new bands formed
1 night only!

Why?

We all know school art and music programs are so important to the enrichment of the body, mind and soul. In response to this.. for our second year, we are bringing the Flagstaff music community together for one night of music and fundraising for event we call, The Redifusion.

The Flagstaff Arts & Leadership Academy (FALA) arts and music program will receive proceeds from this event. We plan to partner with local businesses again to provide a silent auction, back line and food for participants.

*This year six music students from FALA will also be joining in the experience with the bands on stage!

Feb 22 @ 8:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Formed in 2005 by the Jacobo brothers, singer Steven and producer Tony-Ray, the group issued its debut album, Youth Rebellion, that same year.

In March 2017, Tribal Seeds won the San Diego Music Award for Artist of the Year.

LITTLE PEOPLE, FRAMEWORKS, and YPPAH @ The Green Room
Feb 22 @ 9:00 pm – 11:45 pm

Swedish musician brings a hot show of downtempo electronica. You wouldn’t think that growing up in the Swiss Alps in the 90′s would be the best place to be exposed to some of New York’s best underground hip hop. However anglo-swiss producer Laurent Clerc, AKA Little People, argues he couldn’t have been in a better place. Thanks to the forward thinking programming of Laurent’s local radio station and a DJ with his finger on the pulse of a golden age in the making in New York – Laurent’s musical education in all things hip hop was of the highest order. An old Mac and a stack of old LPs were mere catalysts for Laurent to try and emulate the sounds from across the pond.

Levi Platero @ Firecreek Coffee Company
Mar 1 @ 8:00 pm – Mar 2 @ 12:00 am

Southwest Blues Rockers from the Eastern Agency of the Navajo Nation.  www.leviplateromusic.com

Levi Platero is from the Navajo Nation of the Southwest region of the United States. With his family band “The Plateros” they emerged on the music scene in 2004 as a blues rock power trio compared to the likes of Stevie Ray Vaughan, Los Lonely Boys and ZZ Top. After a decade of touring the US with his family band, a one and half year run as a member of the Indigenous (Lakota blues band), Levi decided it was time to get back to his own music. He then recruited a new band, began touring, went into the studio and released a self titled EP featuring the single “Take Me Back” which went on to win the 2016 New Mexico Music Awards for Best Blues.


Levi is a great example of a guitar player with a gift of guitar playing intuition of much more experienced player. Levi’s quiet nature is unleashed in a style that mixes a spectrum of Texas Blues, vintage rock, to modern guitar heroes such as Eric Johnson and Steve Vai. With a captivating live show he ranges from flurries of guitar acrobatics all the way down to soulful expressiveness. Levi is a guitarist and talent to be reckoned with and will continue to shine in the Blues/Rock genre.

mssv – mike baggetta, stephen hodges, mike watt @ The Orpheum Theater
Mar 21 @ 7:00 pm – 11:00 pm

Post-genre power trio mssv was formed early in 2019 when guitarist Mike Baggetta joined up with bassist Mike Watt (MINUTEMEN, fIREHOSE, The Stooges) and drummer Stephen Hodges (Mavis Staples, Tom Waits, David Lynch) to tour on his Wall of Flowers album (BIG EGO Records, featuring Watt and drumming legend Jim Keltner). After a hugely successful US tour performing music that ran the gamut from original electro-free-jazz improvisations, driving new-rock anthems and covers of The Stooges and more from Watt’s first punk rock opera “Contemplating the Engine Room”, mssv has proved a fearless band.

Featuring live electronic processing by both Baggetta and Hodges, as well as Watt’s relentlessly driving bass and vocals, mssv has been able to not only show what it means to be a band in the modern post-genre landscape, but is well on their way to defining it.

Slaid Cleaves & Robbie Fulks @ Coconino Center for the Arts

Slaid Cleaves:

The music of Austin-based singer/songwriter and guitarist Slaid Cleaves is rootedin country and traditional folk songs, but it is unusual enough to have held interest in a sea of singer/songwriters across the 1990s, 2000s, and 2010s. While he released a handful of recordings during the early ’90s, he gained significant notice with No Angel Knows, which was released on Rounder’s Philo subsidiary in 1997. Joined by former Lucinda Williams guitarist Gurf Morlix, Cleaves combined his passion for folk songs, blues, and traditional country music into an amalgamation of styles known as Americana. Not surprisingly, the album rode high into the charts at Americana-formatted radio stations around the U.S. and Canada in 1997. The release set the tone for the rest of his career.

Robbie Fulks:

Nominated for two 2017 Grammy Awards: Best Folk Album (Upland Stories) and Best American Roots Song (“Alabama at Night”)!

Robbie Fulks was born in York, Pennsylvania, and grew up in a half-dozen small towns in southeast Pennsylvania, the North Carolina Piedmont, and the Blue Ridge area of Virginia. He learned guitar from his dad, banjo from Earl Scruggs and John Hartford records, and fiddle (long since laid down in disgrace) on his own. He attended Columbia College in New York City in 1980 and dropped out in 1982 to focus on the Greenwich Village songwriter scene and other ill-advised pursuits.
