Oingo Boingo has had a rather interesting history. As they formed in 1972 under The Mystic Knights of Oingo Boingo, their goal was to develop a interdisciplinary performance art act. The leader of the band is Danny Elfman, an American composer and songwriter, who has completed extensive works in film scores with industry legends such as Tim Burton. The band put together a theatrical performance with an eclectic mix of ska, rock, pop, and world music. As the band evolved, they transformed into an 8 piece ska influenced new wave band. As […]

Visions: A Tribute to What Really Matters

By |September 10th, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Alternative, Event, Rock, Shows, The Cave, Tribute Act|Tags: , , |Comments Off on Visions: A Tribute to What Really Matters

Visions is a high quality tribute band that accurately emulates the music of Rush. While the wardrobe and physical props are the only focus for most tribute acts, Visions focuses on the music above all else. With a rather sophisticated repertoire, Rush’s music is not easy to replicate. Their progressive style will test even the most solid musicians, from the abnormal harmonic and melodic structures to the subtle nuances their song writing styles manifest. Rush’s music is so particular that there aren’t many tribute acts that honor them, much less successfully satisfy the ear of the dedicated Rush fan.

Rush […]

An Interview with Super Diamond

By |August 23rd, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Classic Rock, Rock, Tribute Act|Tags: , , |Comments Off on An Interview with Super Diamond

 

Recently, we have had the pleasure of speaking with and interviewing Super Diamond’s frontman, Randy Cordero. He is a very cool guy, and we enjoyed picking his brain.

His love for music started early on in his childhood. His first 8 track his parents gave him was one of Neil Diamond’s. As he grew up, he was influenced by other bands in the 70’s and 80’s new wave age. These influences and his passion for music formed him into what he is today.

His band has accomplished a great deal, both collectively and individually. I […]

Most people are impassioned by the sound of the iconic songs from the Southern California Ska/punk band Sublime. They brought a fresh sense of excitement with their performance, and clarity with their inspiring musical craftsmanship. As Sublime grew bigger, they never expected something would go terribly wrong.

After the death of singer Bradley Nowell, the band came to a sudden halt. In order for the rest of the members to honor their talents and fallen brother, they formed the band Long Beach Dub Allstars. This is a 7 piece dub/ska/rock band that plays all over […]

Tags:

Malo is an American latin rock band from San Francisco, featuring the brother of Carlos Santana, Jorge Santana. The band was oblivious to this when they recruited him to join Malo. “He came and auditioned, and he was good so we added him.” says front man Arcelio Garcia. In fact, they didn’t find out until 2 years later when Carlos came to one of their performances. Carlos and Jorge acted very familiar toward each other, which confused the band, until Arcelio asked Carlos if he knew Jorge. He was shocked to discover their tie in blood, and the […]

Los Lonely Boys

Becoming successful requires a particular combination of diligence and faith. There are risks to take and challenges to overcome in every step of the journey toward the conscious manifestation of our dreams. For Los Lonely Boys, a unique Texan Latino rock band consisting of three brothers, their journey had led them toward the creation of inspirational music and subsequent worldwide fame. However, this success did not come without hard work and perseverance. Neither was it achieved without the simple acceptance that it can be possible.

The father of the trio, Ringo Garza Sr., had raised his sons in a musical […]
