Awesome show tonight. Super power rockers and ALL ARIZONA
In preparation for SIRIUS/XM I asked for a few Arizona bands to join the show, WOW, the past few weeks have been intense. Check the podcast for all the shows.
BUT this week WHO IS ON....WOW!!!! Starts off with Sectas. A constant CONSTANT supporter of the show, LOVE THESE GUYS. And incredible music. Find out all about their new drummer, how he got there, and their Mexico gig!!!
AND IF THAT WASN'T ENOUGH. Frequis!!!!! WOW!!!! I had some GREAT first with these guys and female front. Had my first f'd up promo which was awesome. That started me down the path of getting fired from MULTIPLE stations and to later dread and leave behind terrestrial radio. AND my first band house party. Incredible band with new bass player. Check them out!!!
AND NOW we get ready, and that means you guys and fellow host on davedarin.com, for SIRIUS!!!!
Sectas - Rock/Alt Metal
Remember when the mention of Metal music set your heart on fire, the lights, the power guitar solos, the long hair and the singers actually sang? SECTAS does, this powerful trio (Christian Lee Lead Guitar/Lead Vocals, David Sectas Bass/Back-up Vocals and Jonathan Collier Drums/Back-up vocals) are sure to bring you back to a time when metal Gods were hailed as heroes, as they should. Christianís gu...itar licks have the ability to grab your very soul and make it throw up the metal horns, Davidís stellar bass tactics tantalize the beast within to scream like a teenage groupie and Jonathanís drums reach into your chest forcing your heart rhythm to match his fierce double kick abilities. Their musical influences span from Alice in Chains to Megadeth and many more making them a force to be reckoned with in a metal world that lost its way.
Frequis - Female-fronted Rock
Frequis is a female-fronted hard rock band from Phoenix, Arizona. Their distinctive sound is defined by a powerful yet melodic voice, a relentlessly driving rhythm section, dynamic guitar solos and high octane live performances. The song writing and their vocalist's unique vocal range and refined screaming ability set them apart from any other female-fronted band.
Odd Cast - with Budd Zunga
Born in Nashville TN.,Budd Zunga is a versatile musician with skills that pull deep from the soul of Blues, Rock & Roll and Jazz,.He and his music are new to the Syracuse market and he is trying hard to have it take root. His aspirations lay in one day becoming a musical influence as did his hero Frank Zappa. His past has laid a foundation that creates his unique style. When asked about influences he says," The Beatles, Beck, Berry, Stravinsky and Mozart,these are just a few, I believe that the musical quality of the harmony of nature abounds and begs to be interpreted, this is my inspiration."
A third generation Native Arizonan, Perry spent his early DJ days spinning at a dozen of small clubs, sports bars, and odd ball gigs. It wasnt until 1998 when he became a regular at Club Rio spinning 2-3 nights a week for over a year. Even though the place is shut down now, it opened the door to radio since thats where he met his connections to his first AZ residence: Mega 104.3 and sister station Energy Az (later changed format to The Beat).
