The El Vez Christmas Show
-from Los Angeles, CA
-Although musician/ performance artist Robert Lopez got his start playing in noted LA punk bands The Zeros and Catholic Discipline, it wasn’t long before he started performing as a character that would bring him notoriety for much of the rest of his life – El Vez, The Mexican Elvis. One part parody, one part tribute, and one part commentary about the Mexican-American experience; Lopez has brought levity, as well as darker insights, over the course of more than a dozen albums studded with unconventional Elvis covers like “En El Barrio” (“In The Ghetto”) and “Immigration Time” (“Suspicious Minds”) that are as likely to borrow licks from The King, as they are Public Image Limited, Iggy Pop, Kim Wilde, or The Jam.

In what is nearly a holiday tradition, December finds Lopez again kicking off El Vez’s Mex-Mas tour where he, his band, and his lovely backup singers The Elvettes channel the magic of Christmas through mashed-up and punked-up versions of classic Christmas carols including “I’m Dreaming of a Brown Christmas,” “Now I Wanna Be Santa Claus” and, of course, “Feliz Navidad.” In a show that is at once deeply traditional, and deeply twisted, it’s loaded with choreography, comedy, crazy costume changes, and giant inflatable Santas making for a holiday tradition even the scroogiest of Scrooges can appreciate.


-from Los Angeles, CA
-Chaki is a funky alien wizard from Outer Space. He has shared the stage with like minded weirdos Peelander Z, El Vez, Bob Log III, Captured By Robots, Flipper and Shannon & The Clams. He is like Prince but not sexy.

Kepie Ghoulie
-from California
-With a cartoony voice, a love of the Ramones, and inclusive spirit, Kepi (aka Kepi Ghoulie aka Jeff Alexander) injects his silly, funny, and friendly music with warm feelings and lots of hooks. Starting out as the leader of the pop-punk monster aficionados the Groovie Ghoulies, Kepi also explored country music with the Haints, set out on his own to make albums that were inspired by folk (American Gothic), aimed at kids (Kepi for Kids), and just plain fun rock & roll before digging back into the Ghoulies' archives to curate a series of reissues in the mid-2010s. Whatever the setting or sound, Kepi can be counted on for his positive outlook, fun songs and delightfully innocent approach to life and music.

Sid Presley
David Greenfield
-from San Francisco, CA

-David Greenfield, aka SID PRESLEY, plays rare & obscure music of the late 1950's through the 1960's, including raw garage rockers, surf and exotica instrumentals, international pop, greasy rhythm and blues, British Invasion, and much, much more.
