Julian Stefon, who has spent more than a decade performing as a Prince tribute artist, says it's easy to see why people would be confused between him and the real Prince. From the purple sequined suit with the white ruffled shirt to the 1980s big hair, Stefon looks a lot like Prince. In a picture which features Stefon and the members of his band positioned around a chopper, the band looks a whole lot like The Revolution, which was Prince's band during the mid-1980s. The decision to perform as the "Purple Rain"-era Prince, Stefon says, was easy.
Those albums, — "1999," "Purple Rain," "Around the World in a Day," "Parade" and "Sign O' the Times" — established Prince as a pop superstar on the order of Michael Jackson and Madonna. Erotic City performs songs from Prince's earlier albums as well as the records the performer released in the 1990s and the current decade, and is sought out all over the country as the premier Prince Tribute Show. DJ Mikey Lixx handles intermission.
Atriarch is a living entity comprised of four parts, offering catharsis through sonic ritual. Our aim is to tear a hole in the veil that blinds us from our true selves. We are bombarded with ideals of a superficial shallow lifestyle, that we are enslaved to maintain. This veil, has become so powerful and overwhelming that we ignore our spirits to worship our shells, as money stokes the fires that burns our immortal souls. Greed corruption fear and hate is the true face of this Self Serving way of life that we have come to call "normal"

BIG BUSINESS Big Business is a loud 3-piece rock band from sunny Los Angeles. They tour, make records, and pretty much do whatever they want. But they do it CLASSY.
THE BUGS A two piece to be reckoned with to say the least. A fusion of the cramps, doo rag, the urinals, just about any real good-time rock band and a gorilla love-in.
