If David Byrne is one of the geniuses of modern times, then Start Making Sense is a tribute to genius. The musicians in this 8-piece Talking Heads cover have come from psychedelia-funk, NYC underground spoof bands, worldbeat jam, head-banging punk and from onstage with Frank Zappa's band members to bring to stage a "once in a lifetime" experience. A rockin', funkin', danceable celebration of the new-wave punk we loved from the 80's with frontman Jon Braun as a spot-on David Byrne - suit too big and all.

It seems that Surf Rock has resurfaced every decade or so since dominating the music scene in the 1960’s. The genre’s latest spike in popularity does not come from the sunny beaches of Southern California. This time around the coolest Surf Rock band is spearheaded by four guys from Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. Montag the Magnificent (Guitar, Vocals, Wardrobe), Johnny Utah (Drums, Rookie Cop), Sylvester Seaweed (Bass, Ninja) and Warchild (Guitar, The New Guy) came together in 2009 to form Great White Caps. From the unkempt hair, to the bright beach gear they wear on stage, Great White Caps embody the vibe of Surf Rock in body and spirit.
