The music of Arizona was originally influenced by its Native American population, followed by Mexican immigrants who brought Banda, corridos, mariachi and conjunto to the state. Its modern music is an amalgam of the styles popular in the rest of the United States. In the 1960s, its rock and R&B bands were influenced by the British Invasion. Alice Cooper and The Tubes were two musical groups that emerged from that era.
In the early 1980s, hardcore punk was the dominant sound. Phoenix bands included The Feederz, JFA (Jodie Foster's Army) and The Meat Puppets, the latter of which had country influences and became a major influence on grunge. Other rock bands of the time included Flotsam and Jetsam, Sun City Girls, Sacred Reich, Caterwaul, and Mighty Sphincter. CeCe Peniston is among the best-known Black musical performers from the area. Her signature song, Finally sold three million copies, worldwide.
During the 1990s and early 2000s, there were several post-grunge, pop punk/emo, and indie rock bands playing the Phoenix area. Other genres included death metal, hardcore punk, metalcore, and post-hardcore. Contemporary Phoenix bands include: The Meat Puppets, Gin Blossoms, Phunk Junkeez, Dead Hot Workshop, Opiate for the Masses, The Jetzons, and Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers. Current musical venues in and around Phoenix include: The Nile Theater in Mesa; Pub Rock and Chasers Bar & Night Club in Scottsdale; Club Red, the Marquee Theatre, and The Yucca Tap Room in Tempe; and Trunk Space, the Rhythm Room, Char’s Has the Blues, Joe’s Grotto, Copper Blues, The Lost Leaf, and The Crescent Ballroom in Phoenix. The newest musical venue, which just opened this year in the heart of downtown Phoenix, is the Valley Bar.
While any one of the bands that play these local venues could be the next mega-group, the only way they can build momentum is by getting their music out to as many potential fans as possible. And that usually means, at least in the early stages of a band’s career, making a self-recorded album and getting their sound on enough CDs to make an impact. At Bison Disc, we’re in the business of helping them make that impact by duplicating, replicating, and presenting their CDs in an affordable and professionally produced package.
Phoenix is home to several music festivals, including the Annual International Jazz Day at Cityscape, the Rockstar Energy Uproar Festival, the McDowell Mountain Music Festival, the Hi-Country Bluegrass Festival, and the Summer Ends Music Festival, a three-day event featuring popular music artists representing a variety of music genres.
Phoenix is not a town with a particularly rich film history, but perhaps the most famous movie shot in the city was Alfred Hitchcock’s 1960 classic, horror film, Psycho, starring Janet Leigh and Anthony Perkins. In 1998, director Gus Van Sant, remade Psycho, again in Phoenix, but this time the film was considered a critical failure. The movie Waiting to Exhale, a 1995 feature starring Whitney Houston and Angela Basset, centered on four female friends living in the Phoenix area. A more recent film shot in the city was Twilight, the vampire-romance film, which became the most purchased DVD of the year when it was released on disc in 2009.
We didn’t replicate all of those Twilight DVDs, but we’re in the same business. We duplicate, replicate, and package DVD and Blu-ray discs for all of our film making customers. Then we package their creations in professionally designed Jewel cases, Jackets, Digipaks, and Box sets, so they can be marketed and sold to their film loving customers.
Regardless of the size of a city, Bison Disc’s services are available to help film and music makers package their products and get them safely and expeditiously to their audiences. We make the cases, jackets, wallets, and sleeves that hold and protect the CDs and DVDs on which all artists record their music and stories. If you live and work in the Valley of the Sun, we hope that you will consider Bison Disc as your disc packaging company of choice.
