MAJESTIC: – San Francisco’s Ultimate Tribute to Journey

Based in San Francisco, and well-known for years as EVOLUTION – The Ultimate Tribute To Journey, the band recently updated their name to more precisely reflect their passion for the music of Journey.  The group now performs under the name, MAJESTIC – San Francisco’s Ultimate Tribute to Journey.  They have never tried to impersonate, or look like Journey.  Instead, they accurately recreate Journey’s music in its most powerful sense by MAJESTIC’s Lead Vocalist capturing the signature Steve Perry vocals and front-man magnetism, their Guitarist delivering the tone and finesse of Neal Schon’s signature guitar mastery, while being supported by a team of remarkable musicians on Drums, Keyboards, Bass and harmony vocals.   Collectively, MAJESTIC delivers all the hits and ballads of Journey with ROCK-THE-HOUSE high-energy, excitement, and professionalism !

LONG TIME:

This Central California based band delivers high energy performances that capture the essence and sound of the incredible rock band, BOSTON.  At a Long Time show the audience will experience all of the memorable Boston hits such as “More Than a Feeling,” “Piece of Mind,” “Smokin’,” “Amanda” and “Don’t Look Back.”  This “must see and hear” live act has been captivating audiences for years with their uncanny ability to recreate the intricate instrumental details of the music, while delivering the mastery of BOSTON’s lead and harmony vocals, which is so pleasing to the ear !

The result of these two top-shelf tribute bands joining forces is a incredibly powerful, and  high energy show, which is guaranteed to have the entire venue standing and singing every song … all night long !!

Davey was invited to the United States from his native Scotland in 1979 by the late Bill Graham to front the band “GAMMA” then being put together by guitarist Ronnie Montrose – “I’d given up all hope of finding a quality singer for GAMMA until I heard Davey Pattison.” (Montrose quoted in the Detroit News).  Davey arrived with a notebook full of Iyrics and began co-writing the GAMMA hits, “Thunder & Lightning”, “No Tears” and “Razor King” for the band’s first album. Two more albums followed and Davey again co-wrote, most notably, the now classic GAMMA song “Voyager”. Major stadium and arena concerts followed as GAMMA was paired with major rock acts like AC/DC, Santana, ZZ Top, Journey, Toto and Foreigner. Davey Pattison and GAMMA had entered the world of big time Rock and Roll.

After years of success, like many bands, GAMMA’s members went their separate ways and in 1986 Davey was approached by his old friend Robin Trower who asked him to perform on his forthcoming album “PASSION”. “Trower’s “PASSION” not only shows off his guitar playing but showcases the talents of the group’s vocalist. Davey Pattison. who brought the house down with ” ‘PASSlON’s’ title track.” (Larry Snider, music director at KXIX, Seattle. “Trower’s guitar playing is topped off by a delicious peformance by one of the unsung talents of our time – former GAMMA front man. Davey Pattison” – Kerrang Magazine, U.K. (The British “Rolling Stone”)

Davey continued his work with Trower playing to sold out venues across the United States and Canada. Two years later the album “TAKE WHAT YOU NEED” was released, again to critical acclaim, and the hit single “TEAR IT UP” was aired on radio stations from coast to coast. In 1990, Atlantic Records released “IN THE LINE OF FIRE” – “Now more than ever. Trower’s music takes on a quality that’s testament to Pattison’s influence on the material” (Kerrang Magazine.) – “Surely now Pattison must be considered as one of the world’s top ten best singers.” (Kerrang Magazine). 1992 saw the release of the album “BEST OF GAMMA” and record sales soared. Davey reunited with Ronnie Montrose to tour in support of the album. Live shows received high praise from fans and critics alike

The Atomic Punks are a tribute to early Van Halen, the David Lee Roth era. Formed in 1994, the Atomic Punks have performed well over 300 shows in places like Hollywood, CA, San Diego, CA, Las Vegas, NV, Phoenix, AZ, Scottsdale, AZ, Seattle, WA, Denver, CO, Honolulu, HI, Andover, MN, St. Louis, MO, Pittsburgh, PA, most recently Salt Lake City, UT, and most importantly, Pasadena, CA, where Van Halen started their meteoric rise to stardom.

Voted “Best Tribute Band” by LA’s “Rock City News” three years in a row, the Atomic Punks have created a national following that continues to grow by leaps and bounds all the time.

In his 1997 auto-biography “Crazy from the Heat,” former Van Halen frontman David Lee Roth referred to the Atomic Punks as “The best tribute to Van Halen ever!” Dave cemented his admiration and appreciation for the Punks’ talents by hiring original axeman Bart Walsh to play guitar on his “DLR Band” tours from 1999-2001. Bart’s replacement, Brian Young, recreated Eddie Van Halen’s sound and furious guitar playing so precisely, that Dave again looked to the Punks, and took the guitarist out on the road in 2002 for his national tour with fellow ex-Van Halen frontman, Sammy Hagar.

Van Halen bassist Michael Anthony performed a set with the Atomic Punks in Pasadena, CA, and said “I feel like I am back in 1982 performing with the old band!” Anthony added, “The Atomic Punks rock!” Anthony recently joined the band again on stage, at the House of Blues in Anaheim, CA on January 31, 2003. He played nine Van Halen classics with the band including, “Runnin’ With The Devil,” “Hot For Teacher,” “Somebody Get Me A Doctor,” “Light Up The Sky,” “You Really Got Me,” “Panama,” “Bottoms Up!,” “Mean Street,” and “On Fire.”

Nationally syndicated radio host Howard Stern stated on his show, “The Atomic Punks become Van Halen. It’s the total experience, they do Van Halen better than Van Halen themselves!”

Current guitarist Lance Turner is a top L.A. session player who has also toured and recorded with Giant recording artist P.O.L. and Drive Thru records recording artist Cousin Oliver. He recreates Eddie Van Halen’s classic guitar sound, playing every riff and solo with as much energy and technique as Edward himself, while capturing all of the enthusiasm and flash of Ed’s engaging live personality.

Original Punks members, Joe Lester (bass), and Scott Patterson (drums), make up a very formidable rhythm section, providing the same rock-solid foundation and pulse for Lance Turner and Brian Geller as Van Halen’s own Michael Anthony and Alex Van Halen did for Eddie and Dave. Joe and Scott also help add all the signature backing vocals to the early Van Halen masterpieces they play.

The Atomic Punks Official Web Site at theatomicpunks.com continues to grow and gets hits from all over the world, and was recently completely redesigned and relaunched, under new management.

There is one important point the band always makes clear at their shows. The Atomic Punks don’t think they are Van Halen, they simply love to play old Van Halen and it shows in their amazingly realistic, power-packed stage show. No Van Halen tribute band captures the note for note performance and feel of an old show like the Atomic Punks. If you love vintage Van Halen, and wish you could experience and relive the energy the “Mighty” VH created with “Diamond” Dave behind the mic, you do not want to miss the Atomic Punks. They are the ultimate tribute to early Van Halen!more >>>

AQUA NETT- Formed in 1982 in Hollywood, California.
Although it is unclear on who was the brain child of AQUA NETT, (each person claims to be the founding member) it is known that there were originally six members in the band: Razzle Rose on vocals,, Wrench on bass, Tommie (The Machine) Gun on drums, Jett Black and Johnny Depp on guitars. Johnny Depp was let go because he was not good looking enough.
By 1986, with their gritty LA party rock sound, and their strikingly androgynous good looks, AQUA NETT quickly climbed the ranks to become LA’s premier party rock band selling out venues like The Roxy ,The Whiskey and the Troubadour and all around the Los Angeles metro area.
AQUA NETT was soon signed on to Glitter Pussy records, a subsidiary of Geffen records, and toured Europe, Japan and was the first American metal band to tour the Soviet Republic. After their world tour, the boys kicked off their first tour of the United States in San Francisco. While in San Francisco Gash met Ti and Doe, founding members of a religious cult called The Heavens Gate. He became aroused with their way of life, and persuaded the rest of the band to join the cult.
Upon joining the cult, AQUA NETT gave up their worldly possessions, cut their hair, and traded in their leather and spandex for the Heavens Gate issue blue jumpsuits. But worst of all, they gave their song rights to their manager who ended up selling AQUA NETT’s songs to lesser hair bands such as Poison, Ratt and Bon Jovi, just to name a few.
AQUA NETT were devout followers of the Heavens Gate cult for ten years until 1997 when Ti announced that the comet Hale Bop was coming close to earth and they would all be leaving the earth the following day. That night the boys decided to have a “last drink” at the local bar and being the partiers that they were, drank too much and passed out in the ally adjacent to the bar, subsequently missing their glorious ride on the comet.
Without their leader and with just themselves they soon drifted apart.
Finally in 2009 VH1 ran a “where are they now” segment about AQUA NETT. One of the guys (each one claiming he was the one) saw the segment and decided to re-torch the band
Today AQUA NETT is vigilantly reclaiming their songs and reinstituting themselves as the world’s greatest hair metal band!
