On the road to the Beachlife Festival, Wall of Sound performed at The Venice West to a near sold-out crowd. With members from the bands Particle, Hydra, Stu Allen & Mars Hotel, Blue Man Group, Cubensis and more, Wall of Sound recreates the energy and power of the 80’s Grateful Dead music featuring authentic tones and style. It’s a shame that venues can’t stay open all night because the excitement from the band and the energy from the fans in attendance would have easily kept this party going until daylight! Known for a surprise tune or two outside of the 80’s, Wall of Sound and it’s bassist Jason Buck delivered an “Unbroken Chain” that Phil would have applauded!
Wall of Sound is Nick Sandoval – Guitar/Vocals • Jim Shank – Guitar/Vocals • Ed Lyon – Keyboards • Jason Buck – Bass • Jeffrey Brown – Percussion/Drums • Darren Pujalet – Drums
