An Interview with Cash’d Out: Johnny Cash tribute

By |March 26th, 2018|Categories: All Ages, All Ages, Classic Rock, Country, Event, Interviews, Rock, Shows, The Cave, Tribute Act|Tags: , |Comments Off on An Interview with Cash’d Out: Johnny Cash tribute

A take for take act of the legendary Johnny Cash

I had the honor of conducting an interview with Douglas Benson, singer of Cash’d Out. Doug is a genuine contributor to the energy Johnny Cash brought to the table. His musical style began to develop as he had lost his job and picked up a guitar. People loved the music he played,  and he had fun playing it. Just like any truly talented individual, Doug had eventually found himself playing music with organic success. “I actually had a pretty good job by the time we started the band. But it was rolling so good, and we were working so much that I figured that I would rather be playing in a band than doing a job. I just jumped off the ledge and quit my job.”

Inspiration

This is a very inspiring story for any musician or artist […]

The Best Kind of Musicians

It is quite rare to find a genuine musician that goes above and beyond purely for the love of their music, and dedication to their craft. I had the pleasure of speaking with one of those people today. Steve Zukowsky is the guitarist of Led Zeppelin tribute band – Zeppelin USA. He is a very talented and hard working guitarist, and each member of the band is just as excellent.

The entire band is filled with accomplished professional musicians that have clicked in a way that brings out the best in the band and each other. Steve was originally in another Zeppelin tribute called Led Zepagain, which he left to eventually find amazing chemistry with the members in Zeppelin USA.

A Young Passionate Musician

Steve has been learning guitar since he was 12 years old, studying all […]

Billy Joel: The Piano Man Tribute

By |January 2nd, 2018|Categories: All Ages, All Ages, Classic Rock, Event, Shows, The Cave, Tribute Act|Tags: , , , |Comments Off on Billy Joel: The Piano Man Tribute

The Early years

Billy Joel had found his creative muse early in life. He discovered his love for music when he learned his first song. His piano lessons consisted of the usual classical training, and he did very well at it. Eventually, he got bored with reading music and began to write his own. To make his mother think he was playing the songs assigned to him, he would improvise classical music. Billy rarely remembered what he had played the day before, so he would make up a new song. The daily repetition of writing song after song made Billy a genius composer and entertainer.

When Billy was 5 years old, his father abandoned him and his mother. He was also not a very good student in school, because he would spend his time playing with his bands rather than doing […]

DSB – Juan Castillo Interview

By |October 23rd, 2017|Categories: Classic Rock, Tribute Act|Tags: , , |Comments Off on DSB – Juan Castillo Interview

On October 28th 2017, The Cave will once again be home to the world’s premier Journey tribute band DSB, short for Don’t Stop Belivin’, and we recently had the pleasure of speaking with Juan Del Castillo–frontman and lead singer.

Del Castillo began his career over 9 years ago when he responded to an ad of a different Journey Tribute band in search of a lead singer. Shortly after joining the first band he realized it was something he could excel at and decided to form his own band to focus on the music of Journey rather than looking like Journey…thus DSB was born.

As we were talking about the history of DSB, I was curious to know if there was a significant moment in the group’s history. Del Castillo instantly responded with a memory from a show they played in Santa Clarita, Ca., back when they were just up and coming, […]

Pink Floyd: Another Brick in the Wall

By |October 16th, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Classic Rock, Event, Rock, Shows, The Cave, Tribute Act|Tags: , |Comments Off on Pink Floyd: Another Brick in the Wall

Surely one of the greatest rock bands of all time, Pink Floyd has captured the world and has inspired a significant section of the population. Standing as a prominent pillar in the world of music since the 60’s, they have made great contributions to the library of music that will be remembered for centuries. Psychedelic, yet concrete, their works have been praised in the music business as some of the most the most commercially viable in music history.

Although their music is very well constructed and catchy, I think the most important aspect of their work is the highly influential message. The concepts they write about are universal in our society, and inspire the common man to rise above the status quo and become a great contributor to the development and overall evolution of our society’s culture.

By |October 3rd, 2017|Categories: All Ages, All Ages, Alternative, Classic Rock, Event, Rock, Shows, The Cave, Tribute Act, Uncategorized|Tags: , |Comments Off on An interview with Dead Man’s Party

Rob Elfaizy is the front man of Dead Man’s Party, the Oingo Boingo tribute band. Rob has been playing music for his entire life, since before he could even hold an instrument. He was a student of the Suzuki method, which is a high caliber system for musical education. He has played violin, classical guitar, and piano. He was drawn to the electric after he got older, taking influences from bands like Oingo Boingo. After Boingo had broken up, he started to play shows their songs as a tribute. It turned out that there was quite a demand for Oingo Boingo music and he had emulated the band well. Rob had been so successful that the original members had heard about them through the grape vine. With Boingo founder Richard Elfman’s approval of the DMP’s legitimacy, they quickly grew into a […]

By |September 21st, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Classic Rock, Event, Rock, The Cave, Tribute Act|Tags: , , |Comments Off on Pyromania: The Next Best Thing to Def Leppard

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…”

– Katie Daryl, producer of The World’s Greatest Tribute Bands on AXS TV

Many tribute bands will dress up and talk the talk, but those who walk the walk don’t need to talk about it. Pyromania is one of the tribute bands that walk the walk, and let their performance speak for them. A quote from an engineer sheds light on how accurately Pyromania emulates […]
