This event is all ages
Formed in Summer 2009, the original members were Conor O'Donoghue(lead/rhythm guitar), Eric Hentschel(vocals/rhythm guitar), Andreas Thallaug(lead/rhythm guitar), Bill Falk(drums), and Eduardo(bass). After about a year, Eduardo, Bill, and Andreas had to leave. The band then got two new members, Colin Bennett(bass) and Zach(drums). Zach broke his collar, and couldn't play drums for a long time. He decided to drop out, and he was replaced by Chris Vance(drums) to make the current member list.
We are Brave Ulysses, taking our name from the great song by Cream "Tales Of Brave Ulysses. We are influenced by Classic Rock groups like Led Zeppelin, Cream and Rush while also drawing inspiration from 90's rock bands like Nirvana and The Foo Fighters. We formed in January of 2011 and over the past year have really grown both as musicians and as a band, having the pleasure of playing festivals like The King of The County BBQ in Martinez and the Fridays on The Main in Downtown Martinez. We have also played such venues like The Vitus in Oakland and The Starry Plough in Berkely. So from our amps to your ears we hope you enjoy...... Brave Ulysses
We are making an attempt at resuscitating the "Grunge Scene" of the early 90's. We use elements of 80s hardcore punk, and metal. (but more so punk). We are trying to break away from this wretched corporate mainstream musical media and put 'Grunge' back on the radar.
My Own Confusion
he band has been rocking the San Francisco Bay Area since 2009...
Kyle (Lead Guitar, backing vocals), Conor (Bass, backing and lead vocals), Phil (Drums, lead vocals), and Joe (Rythym guitar, backing vocals), have been playing together since early middle school. They cut their teeth rehearsing and performing at the Red House Studios in Walnut Creek. The boys original songs are reminiscent of the guitar based bands from the 70's and 80's. Big drums, searing guitar solos and thumping bass lines drive every Devil's Angels song.
They perform regularly at local clubs, civic events, and fundraisers. No matter where they play, the crowd is "smiles all around" and "fist pumping" to the max!
The band are champions of the Hayward Battle of the Bands and the San Mateo School of Rock Bay Area Battle of the Bands. R/R is youngest band to win both of these prestigious battles.
Whether covering a classic band or shredding their own stuff, Rundown Radio always ROCK THE HOUSE!
Back to the days of High School, three close friends mustered up the idea to create a band. Logan Bustamante came up with the original idea who then called up Eric Liu and Thomas Szeliga to discuss it. Once the decision was made, Safety Hazard was born. After playing and writing for a short amount of time they broke up for awhile due to lack of time for the band. About a year later along with new members, Josh Stafford and Isaac Navarro, Safety Hazard came rolling back into the crowd.
Safety Hazard is back in the game!
