The Altons
The Altons
The Altons are a soul rock group with a twist of Latin inspired flavors and rhythms. Their music is driven by intense grooves from the rhythm section that will bring you to your feet, while soulful leads inspire lovers to dance a little closer. Based in Los Angeles, members Gabriel Maldonado, Carlos Canovas, Bryan Ponce, Joseph Quinones, and Adriana Flores came together from disparate musical backgrounds to bring The Altons unified energetic sound to audiences everywhere. When they take control of any stage you can always expect a fun and energetic time. From dirty blues guitar riffs to funky jams, these five musicians are sure to make the old and young crowd put on their dancing shoes. Years of experience let the band play off of each other's chemistry assuring each night is a unique experience with the audience. Always expanding the doors for new fans while staying true to their hometown roots The Altons vivacious cumbias are a sure shot to get any crowd singing in English or Spanish.

With their ability to lively up any crowd The Altons have played Viva Pomona, Make Music Pasadena, Echo Park Rising, and even Bernie Sanders East LA rally. However, they haven’t stopped at their Los Angeles border; The Altons have also performed at the grand opening for Cornerstone in Berkeley, the Beauty Bar in Las Vegas, as well as the Vera Project in Seattle. They have also shared stages with local Los Angeles artists Buyepongo, Thee Commons, and by way of Echo Park Rising Chicano Batman. Not one to rest on their laurels you can expect big things from The Altons, amongst those being the release of their double single Darling Girl/Last Call on 7-inch vinyl and their debut full-length album. 2017 is another sure shot year for this up-and-coming group.
Weapons Of Mass Creation
Weapons Of Mass Creation
Weapons of Mass Creation like to keep their music almost all in the family. The live hip-hop band from Anaheim, California counts five siblings among its six-member crew. The Franco family kids first came together as Franco Funktion, a jam band zigzagging through reggae, cumbia, and hip-hop. As the band evolved creatively, their voices gravitated politically to tackle various social justice topics, and with the addition of new member, Joshua Quinonez, came the updated name to better fit the tone of the group. Weapons Of Mass Creation, or WOMC, has been crafting their skills for the last 3 years and they have plenty to say about what they’re seeing. They currently have a 3 part video series "Live From Sanctuary Sound" available on Youtube.
