- This event has passed.
Saturday, May 4 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm$15 - $18
The Tazmanian Devils began in 1976 in Marin County California. The former Warner Brothers recording artists 1980-81 and San Francisco Bay Area Music Award winners (The Bammies) for Best Bay Area Club Band 1981, are still going strong. Their unique blend of rock, R&B, reggae and “80s new wave” have always set The Devils apart from everyone else. They are back performing live for Tazmaniacs world wide.
In the first half of the 1980s, in addition to being Bay Ares club kings, “TAZ” also played several larger concerts, sharing the stage with The Starship, Tower of Power, Peter Tosh, Huey Lewis & the News, Greg Kihn to name a few. Their unique sound, together with colorful original songs and energetic performances, created a huge following of “Tazmaniacs” – many of whom still enjoy the band today.
The Tazmanian Devils actually have their earliest roots back in the 1960s, when they played together in high school in 1967 (TAM and Drake high schools) and consider their relationship as “a musical brotherhood”. After their 1983 ‘break up’ they kept in touch with “jam sessions” and a few select shows during the 90s. The TAZMANIAN DEVILS returned in 2006 with the release of the most recent CD, TAZ NUVOUX, signaling the beginning of a new era.
Highlighted by the soaring, soulful deliveries of lead singer Dennis Hogan and lead guitarist Dave Carlson and the solid, driving rhythm section of drummer Barry Lowenthal and bassist Duane Van Dieman, The Tazmanian Devils most recently have been performing as a quartet, minus their old friend, the extraordinary keyboardist/singer/songwriter, Pat Craig (who still pops in from time to time). The band is always working on new material as they continue to perform live shows for loyal fans, both old and new.
