About Juke Kartel (www.jukekartel.com)
Rocking loud and hard, with a respectful nod to the blues, Juke Kartel is a charismatic blend of talent, passion and dedication with a downright mischievous streak. As young teenagers, front man Toby Rand, guitarists Dale Winters and bassist Tommy Kende first came together to forge what became Juke Kartel. Drummer Jason Pinfold joined the band later in their journey.  Like brothers they finish each other's sentences, bicker, bait and wind each other up, but the fraternal love is self-evident, along with the mutual admiration and respect. "We're more than just band mates. We're a family that chose each other." Juke Kartel recorded their debut album “Nowhere Left To Hide” at Seattle's renowned London Bridge Studios with legendary rock producer Rick Parashar (Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, 3 Doors Down, Nickelback) and released their 2nd Album "LEVOLUTION" in the last 12 months (produced by Brian Virtue (30 seconds to Mars, Audioslave, Chevelle)). "Juke Kartel is one of the best rock bands to come out in a long time,” says Rick."  They definitely are on their way to being an arena rock band with a 60's,grunge-like quality that gives them an edge." Among the bands many accomplishments, their biggest highlight was being the first unsigned artist to perform at the MTV Awards Australia. The band had played its fair share of small clubs and pubs for the last few years before Nickelback asked them to open two stadium gigs in Melbourne last year. Followed by a national arena tour of the USA and Canada. The guys then traveled back to Australia to do their own national tour, backed up immediately with the main support spot for the Seether tour.  Leaving Australia behind, the band has moved to Los Angeles to focus on breaking in the US as well as to start filming “On The Road with Juke Kartel”–a TV series based on their journey as a foreign artist taking on America.  Expect much more to come.
