Young pros

Ray Stewart and Jack Machin are never selling out, and they're never going to give up.

Dude, never.

As members of The Breakers, they may be the rock-a-thon's band to beat. Founded in 2003 with a series of what Stewart called "personnel changes," The Breakers have played every all-ages venue in the Puget Sound area, including the Old Fire House Teen Center, "like, 50 times," he said.

They count classic-rock bands like Deep Purple as their biggest influence and believe that anything played on classic-rock station KZOK is better than today's music.

Classic-rock musicians were innovators of their time, and they were more skilled, said Machin, 18.

Because it's rebellious and unabashedly masculine, classic rock is a natural for young male musicians, Machin added.

"Rock music is really about male testosterone force," he said, adding that he and his bandmates try to keep that energy in check.

"We have to remind ourselves that we're not competing for the last zebra on the field."

The Breakers have emerged as an alpha band anyway. At the Old Fire House, they've influenced other musicians, like The Solid Hypnotic.

Bio

The Breakers are an alt-rock band coming to you from the Pacific Northwest with a sound that is fresh, yet enthrallingly familiar. We promise to get your ass up and rockin' out to whatever grooves we're bringing. The Breakers got started in 2003, as more of a garage-rock band, but have recently become a powerful force on the outskirts of Seattle with their own brand of heavy hitting balls-2-tha-wallz rock and an intent to takeover the whole world. We write our own music, we play it without sequencers, our sounds are real, just like the people who listen to them.
