Miami Gold is based in Asheville, NC. It is known for playing tight, energetic, and convicted rock n roll; an ability to musically style-shift while remaining true to its core rock sound; and a deep musical chemistry featuring lead guitars and a hard hitting rhythm section. The Power-Trio has played with respected musicians and producers in a variety of live settings and recording studios.
Miami Gold is led by Joel Schantz, a guitarist, singer, and songwriter who fuses smart phrasing and intensity to create an emotionally and sonically engaging guitar style. As a frontman, Joel’s conversational musings and deadpan humor quickly establish a rapport with audiences. Joel has played with some of the luminaries of the rock world, as well as recorded 2 albums under the tutelage of legendary producer Tom Dowd (Allman Bros, Eric Clapton, Eagles, Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin, Thelonious Monk, etc.) Joel’s brother, Ari, is the band’s drummer. His thunderous drive, skillful technique, keen sense of song construction, and attuned ear are a rare combination among rock drummers. Didier Rubio, the band’s bass player, writes heavy riffs that focus the band and lay a solid foundation for its guitar-centric sound.
THIEVES LIKE US
Thieves Like Us are a post-punk disco band, a heartbreaking and
dramatic pop-dance band. Inspired by New Order and Blondie, Thieves
are the illegitimate love child of Asheville underground stalwarts
Hard Rocket and Egg Eaters. This is the focused elevation of melody
and hooks as significant artform, ear candy and a slick cool updating
of Duran Duran, the new new wave and the next new romantic. Thieves
Like US are Colleen Rose: vocals and heartbreak, Senior Rubio Gold:
bass and fashion, Ari Schantz: drums and attitude, and Johnny:
tattooed loud mouth.
