Planet Booty
Planet Booty
Planet Booty is probably not what you think it is. If you haven’t yet experienced the infectious power of their live shows, or danced and sweated along with these impressively talented musicians, or felt the intense, penetrating gaze of frontman Dylan Charles Germick as he begs you, in all sincerity, to love yourself no matter what… then you don’t quite have the full picture yet.

Their original music uses electronics and live instrumentation to create a driving electro/funk/RnB blend inspired by classics like Miami Bass, Prince, Talking Heads, Zapp & Roger as well as modern influences like Major Lazer, Chromeo, Daft Punk. It all adds up to a smart, sexy, and playful sound serving a simple obsession with spreading joy, making bodies move, and cultivating the positive self images of their followers.

Conceptualized in Oakland, CA in 2009 by brothers and Indiana transplants Nathan and Dylan Germick, Planet Booty grew over the next few years into a hugely popular six-piece dance party machine with a reputation for pushing each show to the limit, often adding additional singers, dancers, and horn sections. As word traveled and popularity grew, they began touring regularly along the west coast from San Diego to Seattle. The demands of the road finally compelled them to reconfigure all that energy into a highly efficient three-piece touring unit consisting of Dylan (vocals/trumpet/beats), Josh Cantero (vocals/keys/trombone), and Rob Gwin (bass/percussion/software). With this new format Planet Booty hit the road hard in 2015, touring as far east as Chicago and appearing at festivals including Symbiosis and an an official SXSW showcase.

“Dylan Germick is a true performer and every moment on stage he is there to entertain.” — Spinning Platters

“Planet Booty’s rabble-rousing, sweat-a-thon theatrics are just part of the package, which includes a ‘Soul Train’-worthy six-piece band playing an infectious blend of funk, soul, R&B and electro.” — SF Examiner

“Planet Booty are my favorite band. That is all.” — Jane Wiedlin of the Go Go’s

“Not to get too caught up amongst the posterior puns, it should be noted that, above all, Planet Booty packs a serious musical punch behind their antics.” — Life Is Awesome
Jackson Myron
Jackson Myron
Rocking the decks for the last 13 years, Jackson myron has earned his way to the top of eugene’s must dance to dj list. Today, he is considered one of Eugene’s most lovable tribal house dj’s, spinning world beat influenced tech house and occasionally diving into the Techno and Break Beat sets. He’s played along side the greats and continues to bring the heat to shows in the northwest and festivals along the west coast.
Jackson Myron's music is all about love, and the rhythms that make people dance! We all battle with the accepted norms of society. But most of today's youth are misled by mass-marketing and consumerism in music, he believes in spiritual and personal freedom. The music is our passion, the night life is our medium.
Jackson Myron continues to steadily push the envelope in the sometimes conservative domain of house, clutching onto an open-minded outlook which allows him to try almost anything once, while behind the turntables!
