Tremor to Send Classic Rock Quake through Cypress

Tremor is a fitting name for a young band just starting to make waves.
In the age of electronic music, it’s not every day you’ll find a group of young teenagers shirking the music of their peers and hearkening back to the roots of rock and roll. Even though the classic rock they love hit record players in the 70s and 80s, Tremor is a high school rock outfit that prefers to play songs from that era. Why Creedence and not Creed? Why Beatles over Bieber? Real musicians want to play real music, and these budding rockers take their craft seriously. Since they’re striving for excellence in instrumentation, who better to learn from than the greats?

Completely driven and motivated to eventually be professional musicians, this young band is on their way. Touring many summer festivals this year, from the Del Mar Fair to the OC Fair, Tremor is a band with a plan – a plan to master each level of musicianship with skill and precision. This five-piece plays classic rock cover songs to enthusiastic crowds, tightening their stage presence and evolving their sound, and they’re in the process of working on original material.

And it’s not their parents directing their choice of music! For being barely 15, these teens are bringing back rock and roll all on their own. Catch them at the Cypress Community Festival July 28th at 12:30 p.m. on the Outpost Stage. Follow them on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/tremorofficialband.

The Cypress Community Festival will be held at Oak Knoll Park at 5700 Orange Ave. (west of Valley View St.) in Cypress. The Cypress Kiwanis will be on site serving a hot pancake breakfast beginning at 7 a.m. on the Community Center patio. The Festival grounds open at 9 a.m. following a flag ceremony, the singing of the National Anthem and brief remarks from Cypress City officials. There will be continuous entertainment until 5 p.m. on four stages. Information is available at http://www.cypressfestival.com.

The Altar Billies Slotted To Rock Socks Off At Cypress Festival

The Altar Billies are not a band you can listen to passively and nonchalantly. This seasoned and prolific rockabilly band blasts the audience with an explosion of sound that can only be described as infectious.

Part country, part psychobilly, part punk and full toe-tapping fun, the Altar Billies are a twangy recreation of lead singer Mike Stand’s 80s punk band the Altar Boys. Playing revamped Altar Boys songs in the new millennium with a fresh kick to their steps, the Altar Billies compel any listener to pick up their boots and kick some sawdust around. Fast-paced, rollicking, and roving through various styles of music, there’s a dance in every song.

Based in Orange County, the Altar Billies just released their first self-titled full-length album as a group through Mildred Studios. The 11 tracks are solid and powerful, infused with a rich heritage of hootin’, hollerin’ and hailin’, churning from a deep, raw place of passion. On stage, the all-consuming fire of the band’s three members fuels their energetic performances.

Their descriptive tagline “Gut level hillbilly rebels” sums up the intensity of this act. Listening to their music might just punch you in the gut – In a good way. Be sure to watch them blaze through the Cypress Community Festival on July 28th. They’ll be playing on the Outpost Stage at 11:15 a.m. You can also find them online at https://www.facebook.com/altarbillies.

The Cypress Community Festival will be held at Oak Knoll Park, 5700 Orange Ave. (west of Valley View St.) in Cypress. Cypress Kiwanis will be on site serving a hot pancake breakfast beginning at 7 a.m. The Festival grounds will open at 9 a.m. following a flag ceremony, singing of the National Anthem and brief remarks by Cypress City officials. Festival information is available at: http://www.cypressfestival.com/

Roadhouse Band Offers Blues and Rock to Chili Tasters and Car Lovers

Snuggled in with smoking hot chili, tongue-tingling salsa and spit-polished classic and muscle cars, the stage in the Chili Cook-off and Car Show area of the Cypress Community Festival will serve up the Roadhouse Band from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m on Festival Day, Saturday, July 28.

This local Orange County music group — made up of four friends who met more than 25 years ago at Pacifica High School in Garden Grove — combines blues tunes and classic rock for a maximum mix of dancing and listening pleasure. The group has played many SoCal clubs and venues, most recently at Original Mike’s Restaurant and the Orange Street Fair.

The four band members are passionate about music that covers more than 30 years. The lead guitarist is Kurt King, backed up by Steve Mills. Brian Bevilacqua plays bass. Tony Schirner keeps the beat on drums.

Each year the band’s popularity grows with its Cypress Festival audience. This year you can expect to hear great tunes like “Mustang Sally,” “Brown Eyed Girl,” and “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg.” The Cypress Community Festival is pleased to welcome Roadhouse back to our Chili and Car Show Stage.

The Cypress Festival will be held at Oak Knoll Park, 5700 Orange Ave. (west of Valley View St.) in Cypress. For more information, visit the Cypress Community Festival website at http://www.cypressfestival.com/

Local Teens to Invade the Cypress Festival

You’ve seen them on YouTube and Myspace, now you can catch “Chaos Invasion” performing live at the “Outpost” Stage on Saturday, July 28 at the Cypress Community Festival. The Festival is held at Oak Knoll Park, 5700 Orange Ave. in Cypress.

Their current set list includes: “Take Me out,” “Eye of The Tiger,” “Time is Running Out,” “Living On a Prayer,” “Adam’s Song,” and “I love Rock and Roll.”

Chaos Invasion has played at school carnivals, city fairs and birthday parties — for more details visit http://www.Chaosinvasion.net.
