Profile Information

About Me:
PLATEROS IS A THREE PIECE FAMILY BLUES ROCK POWER TRIO, FROM TOHAJIILEE, NM OF THE EASTERN
AGENCY OF THE NAVAJO NATION WITHIN THE SOUTHWEST OF THE UNITED STATES. THEY FIRST CAME
ON THE MUSIC SCENE IN DECEMBER 2004 AT A MUSIC FEST IN BIRDSPRING, AZ. BY APRIL 2005
THEY WERE INVITED TO THE BIGGEST POW WOW IN THE WORLD, "THE GATHERING OF NATIONS" FOR
A 20-MIN SET ON THE "REACH THE REZ STAGE". AT THE TIME THE LEAD GUITAR PLAYER WAS ONLY 12YRS
OLD. LEVI CAME OUT ON THE STAGE THAT NIGHT AND JUST AMAZED THE PACKED CROWD. THE YOUNG
GUITARIST SLID ACROSS THE STAGE WITH POWER CHORDS AND SCREAMING BLUES NOTES AS HIS DAD,
MURPHY, BACKED HIS SON WITH BASS GUITAR, VOCALS, AND HIS OLDER COUSIN KEPT THE BEAT ON
DRUMS. THIS WAS THEIR FIRST MAJOR PERFORMANCE. BY THE END OF THE SHOW THE CROWD HAD
JUST SEEN THE ARRIVAL OF ANOTHER NATIVE AMERICAN FAMILY BAND LIKE INDIGENOUS AND REDBONE.
THE CROWD GAVE THE YOUNG BOY AND HIS FAMILY BAND A HUGE WELCOME TO THE NATIVE AMERICAN
MUSIC SCENE. LITTLE DID THEY KNOW THAT THIS WAS JUST THE BEGINNING OF A JOURNEY THAT
WOULD TAKE THEM FROM A SMALL INDIAN RESERVATION ACROSS THE ENTIRE COUNTRY, EVEN
TO THE 2009 U.S. PRESIDENTAL INAUGURAL BALL.

TODAY LEVI CONTINUES TO PERFORM WITH HIS FAMILY. THEY HAVE PERFORMED OVER 280 SHOWS
SINCE 2005,. THEY ARE CONSIDERED ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING BANDS TO WATCH LIVE. IN 2009 THEY
WON BEST BLUES AT THE NEW MEXICO MUSIC AWARDS FROM THEIR 2ND ALBUM "HANG ON", NOMINATED
TWICE BY THE NATIVE AMERICAN MUSIC AWARDS IN 2006 AND 2008. THEIR FIRST MUSIC VIDEO "FOREVER
I'M WITH YOU" WAS NOMINATED FOR BEST MUSIC VIDEO BY THE 2009 AMERICAN INDIAN FILM FESTIVAL IN
SAN FRANCISCO, CA, WON BEST MUSIC VIDEO AT THE 2010 DREAMSPEAKER FILM FEST IN ALBERTA CANADA
, IN 2008 AND 2009 THEY WERE SELECTED WITH OTHER WELL KNOW NATIONAL NATIVE ACTS IN THE FIRST
EVER NATIVE MUSIC ROCK TOUR IN 15 SELECTED CITIES AT HARD ROCK CAFES ACROSS THE U.S, SPONSORED
BY THE SEMINOLE TRIBE OF FL. IN CONJUCTION WITH HARD ROCK INTERNATIONAL. THESE ARE JUST
A FEW THINGS THIS YOUNG BAND HAVE ACHIEVED.

THEIR PERFORMANCE IS FILLED WITH SOME AMAZING ENERGY WITH A MIXTURE OF BLUES, ROCK, FUNK AND
GOSPEL. WITH HIS COUSIN DOUGLAS ON DRUMS WHO STARTED THE BAND WITH HIM, IN MARCH OF 2010
THEY RECRUITED THEIR COUSIN, BRONSON BEGAY. ALL THREE BOYS HAD A PASSION FOR MUSIC AT VERY
YOUNG AGES WATCHING AND LISTENING TO THEIR FAMILY’S PLAY MUSIC AND SING IN CHURCH. THEY
DIDN’T GET ANY FORMAL TRAINING OF ANY KIND WHEN IT CAME TO MUSIC. JUST WHAT THEIR SCHOOL
OFFERED, THEY LEARNED BY EAR, AND MOST OF ALL THEY HAVE PASSION.
THEIR STYLE IS A MIX OF TEXAS BLUES WITH A TOUCH OF 70'S ROCK AND ROLL. THOUGH YOUNG , THEY
HAVE GAINED A STRONG STAGE PRESENCE. LEVI'S STRONG BLUESY VOCALS AND AMAZING GUITAR RIFFS
HAVE BEEN CAMPARED TO STEVIE RAY, HENRY GARZA OF LOS LONELY BOYS, AND MATO OF INDIGENOUS.
WITH THEIR OWN LYRICS AND MUSIC FROM THEIR FIRST AWARD WINNING ALBUM "HANG ON", THEY HAVE
GAINED A REPUTATION OF BEING A SOLID BLUES ROCK BAND.
Favorite Blues Artists and Bands (Please list at least a few...we use this question to weed out spammers)
Big Head Todd and the Monsters, Ian Moore, SRV, Los Lonely Boys, Muddy Waters, Buddy Guy, Indigenous, Tommy Castro, Peter Green, John Mayer, Otis Rush, Greg Nagy & Root Doctor, Miles Davis, Jeff Healey, Bob Marley, The Verve, Otis Spann, T-bone Walker, Little Walter, Sonny Boy Williamson, Carlos Santana, Albert Collins, Albert Kind, BB King.
