April Artist of the Month, FretWraps, LA Music Critic Awards

We are thrilled to announce the B-52’s as our April Artist of the Month! Since 2015 the band has generously and consistently donated Meet and Greet packages, concert tickets, and unique memorabilia and we are so grateful for their continued support. We will be sharing more about the band throughout the month of April, including some little-known factoids, trivia and a Q&A with the band!! 

It is well known that the B-52s are The World’s Greatest Party Band. And nearly forty years and over twenty million albums into their career, there can be no doubt as to why they remain one of rock music’s most beloved and enduring bands. Any mystery concerning the band’s longevity and ongoing appeal is immediately solved when exposed to a B-52s concert experience. From groundbreaking songs like “Rock Lobster,” “Dance This Mess Around” and “Private Idaho“ to chart-topping hits like “Love Shack” and “Roam” and “Deadbeat Club” to their thrilling reemergence on the pop scene with their 2008 CD Funplex the B-52s’ unforgettable dance-rock tunes start a party every time their music begins. 

Want a chance to meet the band in person? Keep an eye out for updates, we will be auctioning off a pair of tickets and a meet & greet to the show of your choice, plus exclusive memorabilia!
