The local sensation, After Dark, will be warming up the stage with their energizing classic rock tributes.
Marco Mendoza hails from a musical background steeped in his Mexican heritage. From a young age his Grandmother in Tijuana, Mexico would take him through his paces on the piano before moving on to the guitar. After joining local bands in the Los Angeles scene from an early age, it would not be until 1989 that his first break would come when former Black Sabbath drummer Bill Ward recruited him as part of his solo band. This would springboard him on his way to play with a collection of some of the rock world’s biggest bands and musicians including John Sykes Blue Murder, Thin Lizzy, Ted Nugent, The Dead Daisies and Whitesnake to name a few.
In the world of bass guitar there is not much Marco can’t do or hasn’t done. Marco is a dynamic live performer who is equally at home at a huge stadium as a small jazz club. He can cover just about any musical style from jazz, fusion, world music, Latin groove to all out hard rock. In addition, he is an accomplished vocalist who has written and recorded two highly acclaimed solo albums, Live for Tomorrow and Casa Mendoza. His third album, Viva La Rock, will take you on a rollercoaster of musical emotions. Hear the title track “Viva La Rock” blaring from our speakers during the Friday night concert!
