The Record Exchange turned 40 and threw a huge party inviting several Boise bands for a night of 1977 covers. I threw together this amazing Super Band and we were off to the races with "So Into You" by the Atlanta Rhythm Section. It was a great night full of a lot of love for our beloved record store.Read More
As part of Boise Weekly's annual "Best of Boise" Steve Fulton was nominated and voted in amongst Boise greats Rebecca Scott and Thomas Paul.
"To be on a "best of" list with Rebecca Scott and Thomas Paul is so cool and a huge honor. Boise has a endless pool of talented musicians, I feel lucky just to be swimming amongst them. Thanks Boise!"
1977 was a great year for music. It was also the year The Record Exchange opened their doors, providing Boise with the states largest independent record store and 40 years of pure pleasure. Join a bevy of Idaho artists as we help them celebrate this milestone with our own versions of great tunes from 1977. This is going to be a blast!Read More

SFM had a great trip to Montana to play Billings Alive After Five and open for Jefferson Starship and Blue Oyster Cult. We can't wait to make it back to Montana again!
Alive After Five in downtown Boise is always a good time, but this time I get to sit in with Scars on 45 playing bass! They put on a great show, come on down, dance and play in the fountain! Their music is so great, you will be so happy you made it!
The highly anticipated vinyl version of Eponym released 5/12/17 at Boise's own Record Exchange and debuted at #2. After the release of Eponym last October it has been a long wait, wanting to make sure it was the high quality vinyl lovers expect, we feel the wait was worth it.

The Name of the Game
Local musician-producer Steve Fulton ends a decade of dearth with jam-packed Eponym
By Amy Atkins
It has been 11 years since Steve Fulton released a new album. Our patience has been rewarded.
It has been nearly 20 years since local band House of Hoi Polloi released an album, but band co-founder Steve Fulton still gets asked what the name means—and he still doesn't have a satisfying answer.
"I just liked the way it sounded," Fulton said laughing, though like with most of his creative choices, the decision wasn't really uninformed: hoi polloi is Greek for "the masses" and House of Hoi Polloi was a band for everyone. It worked hard to make sure "the masses" who came out to dance the night away to its rock/funk/ska reggae sound had fun.
He's right. Eponym says it all. Read the full interview here

I am honored to be a part of 'We're his fans: A live tribute to Leonard Cohen' at The Record Exchange 1/12 at 6pm.
To a troubadour unlike any other. To a poet of the ages. To an amazing life story. I have something special that I am going to do for this show too. Get your wristbands before they are gone and support The Record Exchange. They have been beyond good to me and are, in my opinion, one of the biggest treasures we have in our community especially for musicians and music lovers!
