Back in the early 1980’s Heavy Metal music had evolved to include many sub-genres such as black metal, death metal, and speed/thrash metal. At the forefront of the speed metal movement was a fiery group formed in Los Angeles California who would go on to become one of, if not, the most beloved Metal bands ever! Their name, Metallica.

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

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 […]

The Righteous and the Wicked

By |July 20th, 2017|Categories: Punk, Reggae, Rock, Tribute Act|Tags: , , |Comments Off on The Righteous and the Wicked

Red Hot Chili Peppers is more than just a musical group; they are a cultural icon. The rare style and technique they manifest has stood the test of both time and critique. Anothony Keidis’s (front man) charismatic style of singing reflects a great deal of soulful wisdom. Flea exudes a fun loving attitude and personality the audience thrives off of. Their style of playing is so unique that few can recreate it at the same caliber, except Righteous and The Wicked: a tribute to Red Hot Chili Peppers.

This is a group of four well established and experienced musicians who […]

Zeppelin USA: A Perfect Embodiment

By |July 15th, 2017|Categories: All Ages, Classic Rock, Tribute Act||Comments Off on Zeppelin USA: A Perfect Embodiment

Any tribute band can add the props, effects, and character traits of the band they are celebrating. However, what makes a tribute special is the ability to emulate and perpetuate the energy that made the original band so iconic and meaningful to the listeners. For Zeppelin USA, every performance is a commemorative immortalization of the legendary band we know and love.

Robert Plant is one of the most sophisticated vocalists in rock and roll’s long and diverse history. The nuances and inflections are so unique that most singers, no matter how high caliber they are, fail to imitate it in […]

Cash’d Out at The Cave

About Cash’d Out

Over the past couple of decades, tribute bands have become big business in the world of concert promotion. And, not surprisingly, the more popular ones are the acts that are most authentic. Such is the case with Cash’d Out (Douglas Benson vocals, Kevin Manuel guitar, George Bernardo drums, and Stephen Rey bass), a San Diego based band, that channels Johnny Cash in about as close a manner to the real thing as it gets.

How can you tell?

Well, beyond critics having anointed Cash’d Out the “next best thing to Johnny Cash,” […]
