The members of Dead Man’s Party also have other original projects in the works. However, their main focus is their tribute to Oingo Boingo. They also play certain Elfman works, like cinema and soundtracks.
There are hardships every band has to go through. For DMP, the main difficulty was finding the right musicians who focus on the music in the context of passion. “We take the music very seriously. However, we make sure not to take ourselves too seriously,” Elfaizy says. This is an important concept for any musician to understand, for it is very easy to get short-sighted by the money and general hustle of the industry.
Oingo Boingo is a very unique band, with an interesting mix of a wide range of influences. With classic rock, punk, ska, big band music, and circus style music, Oingo Boingo brings a very unique vibe to their audience. The song writing and arrangements are something that is almost unprecedented to the rock and roll scene. What makes DMP unique is their ability to perpetuate that energy and re-create it in a way that satisfies even the most hardcore Boingo fan.
