Pyromania, the #1 Def Leppard tribute, is a perfect recreation of the music Def Leppard had brought to the table. After 14 years of developing their act, Pyromania has made itself known as the next best thing to Def Leppard. Even Def Leppard themselves has promoted Pyromania and their efforts to honor the band. Setting numerous attendance records, the band has been voted the third best tribute band of all time.

” After reviewing our choices, it was unanimous that Pyromania is the best Def Leppard tribute band…”

Blue Oyster Cult: An Epic origin

By |September 18th, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Classic Rock, Event, Rock, The Cave, Uncategorized|Tags: |Comments Off on Blue Oyster Cult: An Epic origin

Blue Oyster Cult is an incredibly insightful and imaginative band. Their music and lyrics are rather articulate in the way it is structured and conveyed, and certainly not among the status quo in the niche of rock and roll. Yet, despite the subtle complexities in the arrangements of their music, they still manage to deliver it in a package that the average person can easily understand and digest.

Originally named multiple times, the band had been through a lot of changes. The most notable of original names is Soft White Underbelly, which […]

Dead Man’s Party

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

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 […]

Long Beach Dub Allstars

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 […]
