FEEDBACK

FEEDBACK – Emerging from the Warehouse District of Hialeah in the early 1970’s, Feedback achieved local stardom as a heavy metal band and eventually opened for such luminaries as Black Sabbath and Judas Priest before selling out in the 1980’s and writing a string of chart-topping power ballads such as “Oye, Chonga.” As the popularity of 80’s hair metal declined, Feedback reinvented itself as a 90’s rock cover band. Nowadays, Feedback can be found touring the bars of Brickell, Coral Gables, and Wynwood, playing for bar tabs and spare change. Feedback is also available for private parties, weddings, and bar mitzvahs.

Feedback’s guitarist and founding member practices law at Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner under the name “David Axelman, Esq.” Feedback’s lineup is rounded out by the soaring lead vocals of Diego Espinosa, the pulsating bass riffs of Nick Cabrera, and the thundering drums of Rocky Ricardo.

The 540’s

Back by popular demand, The 540’s features Carlos H. Gamez, Esq., Lead Vocal and Saxophone and Assistant City Attorney, City of Miami, Manuel Mesa, Esq, Keyboards, EWI, and Background Vocals, Principal at Mesa & Pepin LLC, Mike Mesa,  Bass and Background Vocals; Rick Santos, Lead Guitar and Background Vocals, Product Manager- Driven / ONE Discovery Software, Alejandro Herrera  Drums; and Special Appearance by Christopher Green, Esq., Solo Guitar, Senior Assistant City Attorney at City of Miami. “Seemed like a great excuse to get away from rambunctious toddlers.”

The URGE

The URGE is a rock cover band formed in 1996 that features Fred Fein, Lead Vocals and Guitar, Partner at Clyde & Co, Mark S. Meland, Lead Vocals and Bass and Partner at Meland Russin & Budwick, Dean Crews on Lead Guitar and Vocals, and Frank Campillo on drums. After years of covering a broad range of classic rock, the band now covers newer, more recent rock artists including, but not limited to, Nickelback, Foo Fighters, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stone Temple Pilots, Jet, Soundgarden and many, many more what they like to call, “soon to be classic rock”. With hundreds of songs in their repertoire, the URGE is now focusing on a more guitar oriented, heavier and edgier rock more in line with today’s sound. These two time champs provide musical entertainment for those who like to rock at all types of settings and venues. With over 100 years combined experience playing out “live” in a variety of bands, they are not interested in “making it” in the music business (anymore!) as each of the members are dedicated to other full time careers (and families) in law, construction and computer technology; but, their love of music and “URGE” to perform keeps them together and committed to putting on a show that will keep you rockin’, rollin’ and dancin’ all night long!.
