Here’s what it sounded like in the control room during the first live recording session for Maiden United, a new Iron Maiden tribute band. Do you recognize this song?
Please welcome the new We’re No Gentlemen guitarist, Alex Messano to our beautiful family of misfits. We’ve been having a blast at rehearsals and everything sounds amazing. I can’t wait to hit the stage and the studio with this talented non-gent. We’ll announce our debut show with the new lineup soon!
I’m performing with The Nguyen Twinz at OC Fair on August 5th! I just recently started rehearsing with this crew, and I’m having a blast and loving every minute working with them. I can’t wait to hit the stage with them.
There’s a special magic for me every time I step into a recording studio. My Kemper Profiler and I have been in our happy place for the past few days working on tracks for a new Iron Maiden tribute project.
First studio photos with my new, customized Fender Precision 5-string bass. Much thanks to @dgomes818419 on Instagram for suggesting that I name it ‘Ehukai (Hawaiian word for sea spray). Now that this bass is all set up and ready to go, I’m looking forward to using it at a recording session next week, and then we’ll be busy with quite a few gigs coming up.

Gathered ’round the mic with Rich and Scott for some backing vocals during the first Maiden United recording sessions.
I recently started rehearsing with a new tribute project (and it’s a band that’s always been on my wish list). I’m putting together my wardrobe for an upcoming video shoot and a few shows. I had to get crafty with a fabric pen in order to recreate one of the clothing items worn by the bassist I am portraying (since the Interwebs seem to indicate that this item is no longer available).
Quiz Question: Which bassist is known for wearing these wristbands?
Thanks to the staff and the amazing audience that came out to catch Identity Theft (the band) last night at Terranea. We had so much fun and hope to see y’all again soon.
Come catch me live with ‘Identity Theft’ at Terranea Resort tonight as part of the Terranea Sound Series at Nelson’s. We’re playing all your favorite 80s tunes at the Beer Garden from 6-10pm, surrounded by outdoor fire pits and unrivaled ocean sunset views. No reservations needed. Just arrive early enough to snag seating.
Just finished a photo shoot with Red Hare Images and the new We’re No Gentlemen lineup. Lots of new stuff coming soon!
