About the Band




To play classic rock that is immediately recognizable, danceable, and crowd-pleasing. Powerful lead vocals by a front man coupled with harmonies by 3 band members that sing individually and together creates an impressive, dynamic sound seldom heard today. Our aim is to create high-energy and enthusiasm on stage that projects into the audience. We encourage audience participation.

The Music:

Definitive music from the 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, and 80’s. The music has been chosen as most representative of each era. We cover different styles - pop, rock, blues and R&B. We appeal to both baby boomers and Gen Xers.

Why Hire Us:

What makes Tungsten unique is that the players are mature & professional. We are also sensitive to the concerns of the bar owner.
