OINGO BOINGO tribute band Dead Man's
Party has been bringing you Boingo tunes LIVE - the way you
remember 'em from the original Oingo Boingo shows - for over a
decade! This 8-PIECE BAND has been fashioned after the ORIGINAL
OINGO BOINGO LINE-UP, featuring a THAREE-PIECE HORN SECTION,
GUITAR, BASS, KEYS, DRUMS and a front-man so convincing that
people sometimes believe that they are actually watching DANNY ELFMAN himself!
Not only has DMP been "ELFO-APPROVED" by Oingo Boingo founder &
DMP supporter RICHARD ELFMAN, but the band has even been
joined on stage by FORMER OINGO BOINGO BAND MEMBERS, such as
STEVE BARTEK, and JOHNNY "VATOS" HERNANDEZ.
"Hard-core Boingo fans continue to show their support and
appreciation for the band's 'TRUE TO BOINGO sound and their
lead-singer's uncanny resemblance to DANNY ELFMAN, both in looks
and in vocal performance. Whether you're an old-school MYSTIC
KNIGHTS of the OINGO BOINGO fan, a DANNY ELFMAN / OINGO BOINGO
fanatic, or are new to the Boingo world, DMP always delivers a
HIGH-ENERGY, IN YOUR FACE PERFORMANCE that never disappoints!"
A note to our critics:
The members of Dead Man's Party do not think they are, are not
trying to be, nor do they have any delusions of being Oingo
Boingo. Danny Elfman has said that he would not reunite the
band; that's why DMP exists. Though some former Oingo Boingo
members do get together for a gig every so often, Boingo is -
UNFORTUNATELY - no more. No band lives forever. DMP, however IS
dedicated to recreating the Oingo Boingo experience. We are not
just a band paying tribute to the music of Danny Elfman and the
boys of OB. We work hard to deliver that music true-as-possible
to its original sound with concerts that bring Boingo veterans
back to the good old days, and show the newbees what's what...
If you think any of us do it for the money, think again. This
music is challenging and takes time & effort to work out. Our
drummer Axel once calculated that DMP members make approximately
$.02 an hour when you work in all of our rehearsal time. If you
consider THAT "cashing in" you should probably consider a
different career yourself... Or maybe you should just get off
your high-horse & check out a show. Who knows? You might even
enjoy it as much as the rest of us do!
