Over the last few years, the SCHIZOPHONICS have built up a formidable reputation in San Diego as an Explosive live act. Tapping into the same unstoppable combination
of rock 'n' roll energy and showmanship that fueled THE MC5 in the heyday of the Grande Ballroom, they're also heavily influenced by artists like JAMES BROWN, IGGY POP,
JIMI HENDRIX, LITTLE RICHARD, and THE SONICS. Singer/Guitarist Pat Beers and drummer Lety Beers started playing together in late 2008 and have worked tirelessly since then, winning 4 San Diego music awards, and playing hundreds of live shows up and down the West Coast, and further afield. In 2013 they were recruited as the backing band/Opening band for EL VEZ, touring Spain and Italy. They returned to Europe in 2015 with THE LITTLE RICHARDS, and toured the U.K. for the first time in late 2016 with LITTLE BARRIE. Shindig magazine gave glowing reviews of their London show, describing it "Like watching some insane hybrid of WAYNE KRAMER, JAMES BROWN, and the Tazmanian Devil". After releasing singles and EPs over the last few years on Munster, Ugly Things, and Pig Baby Records, they'll be releasing their first full length album in July 2017 titled Land Of The Living on the Sympathy For The Record Industry label, with tours planned on the East Coast, the UK and Spain.
The Magnificent are a hard-rocking sixties-soul show band, playing non-stop shouters and stompers that will crack your back, unwind your spine, and make your liver quiver.
The Magnificent are seven Hollywood rock-scene veterans who have until now hidden their secret love for skull-slamming rhythm and blues, but now reveal it to the world in a show so savage it has already been banned in thirteen states.
The Magnificent are a double-barreled blast of shotgun soul, with two frenetic front men belting out blistering dance floor smashes, backed up by a five man wrecking crew who can tear it up and tear it down.

Vocalist, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Veronica Bianqui integrates the raw energy of garage rock with the passion of classic soul and R&B, and the pop sensibilities of 60s girl groups while maintaining an intense yet playful edge. Perhaps it’s her background in musical theatre, jazz, classical, and even Indian classical music, or her mother’s propensity for blasting The Beatles and Joe Cocker around the house, but Bianqui’s tastes and influences cross a wide spectrum of sounds. In her live show, Bianqui and her band consisting of up to 10 members—reminiscent sometimes of a revue– combine classic showmanship with a heartfelt directness that keeps the music intimate.
Before breaking out with her solo material, Bianqui made a name for herself in the LA circuit, performing in bands that toured across the U.S. and Europe. As a current member of 1960’s inspired folk/surf/psych rock outfit The Blank Tapes, she balances the two bands, often collaborating with bandmate and co-producer Matt Adams, including on her debut album that is yet to be released.
Bianqui's next single release "Victim" will be available September 15th on all digital outlets, including Spotify, iTunes, and Apple Music.
