The band was formed in 2014 by Brad Landon who was a lead vocalist in hard core punk bands in the early to mid 80’s. Brad and Larry write most of the bands original songs. Brad’s songs are heavily influences by psychedelic rock and punk rock (i.e. Bowie, Nine Inch Nails, Danzig, Pink Floyd and the Doors) while Larry’s major influences are rooted in 80’s rock / Glam Rock / Glam Metal (i.e. Motley Crue, Van Halen, Whitesnake and Alice in Chains).
Brad is a local attorney practicing in family and business law. The band has played throughout the valley at venues such as Lorimar Winery, Uptown Tavern, Franklin’s Cove, Wine and Beer Garden, Front Street Union and regularly at the Band’s favorite dive bar – the Ponderosa in Menifee as well as venues in Los Angeles County.
The band never plays for tips and has contributed its past tips to Michelle’s Place a breast cancer resource center for women.
