Performance By: Hurricane

Hurricane is a powerful hard rock band from Los Angeles that formed in 1984 by Guitarist Robert Sarzo, and Bassist Tony Cavazo. Cavazo, former Quiet Riot and Snow bassist, was introduced to Sarzo by the late Quiet Riot frontman, Kevin DuBrow in the early 80ʼs. DuBrow suggested they put a band together and they did just that. Cavazo and Sarzo being the siblings of the classic Quiet Riot lineup guitarist and bassist Carlos Cavazo and Rudy Sarzo, decided to create a monster.
They recruited singer Kelly Hansen and drummer Jay Schellen and hit the ground running. With little label interest, the band decided to release a mini-album themselves, Take What You Want. The album and constant touring led to them getting a major label deal. In 1986 & 1987 they opened for Christian metal band Stryper on their To Hell with the Devil album tour. They were soon signed to Enigma Records, the same label as Stryper.
In 1988, the band released their major label debut album, Over the Edge. In 1989, Sarzo left the group and was replaced by ex-Lion guitarist, Doug Aldrich. This lineup recorded the album Slave to the Thrill, which was released in 1990. In 1991 Schellen wrote, recorded and toured extensively with both Unruly Child and Sircle of Silence while Hansen did a considerable amount of session work. Schellen suggested that Hansen help with the recording of Unruly Child’s second release, and shortly after they agreed to resurrect Hurricane. In 2010, Robert Sarzo and Tony Cavazo, founding members, reunited and recruited singer Andrew Freeman and drummer Mike Hansen.

Performance By: SKUM LOVE

Skum Love the man was known among the touring industry and was synonymous with filth, debauchery, and his dealings with the perverse. Skum Love was also a house hold name in Hollywood’s most notorious nightclubs and alleyways. While Skum was promoting clubs all over southern California, touring the world and spreading the “brand” so to speak of Skumlove there was always a musical itch that wasn’t being scratched. Skum under the wing of Glen Danzig began the first incarnation of Skumlove using Danzig‘s then band consisting of Joey C and Todd Youth. Although having access to an easy road through friends in the business Skum Love was a self-made man and this incarnation died due to creative differences.

Skum worked with different artists in Los Angeles but nothing was clicking musically as his sound was misunderstood by Los Angeles’ Musicians Institute graduates and current scene locals. Skum met M Robinson through Dino Cazares of Fear Factory (later to be dubbed Robyn Sin by Dave Teague of the Dickies while in the green room of Roseanne Barr’s talk show – another story all together) and without hesitation brought him into the world of Skumlove without hearing a played note. From early writings in a Venice studio apartment to a North Hollywood apartment where the songs were first recorded using wave files and playing over a Roland Groove box and a Radio Shack Karaoke machine, the first song “Ego” was born. Being an entrepreneur Skum and Robyn burned discs night after night and spent hours at Kinkos making the 3 song demo which was later distributed and sold thousands throughout Hollywood nightclubs.
