    MadBrenda consists of Tom Foster, his two daughters, Torie (17) and Sam (16), and his guitar teacher and friend Matt Aub, who joined recently. For more than seven years, the group has worked hard to find their groove, combining everyone's creativity and inspiration into MadBrenda's musical creations. Tom provides mindblowing riffs while Matt thickens our sound with the aid of his own guitar. Sam sings her heart out and proudly struts her bass. Torie, the drummer, has proudly been called a human metronome. MadBrenda is not only a band, but also a family. We were established by our dedication to creating music, and by our love and care for one another. It's through our commitment to each other and to everyone involved that the band has flourished. We play everything from the White Stripes, Blink-182, AC/DC, U2, and Goldfinger to our very own musical makings, including "Pity," "Cancer Stick," and "Psychcotic Reaction." Each band member has written an original, which serves to make our own songs distinct and different from other bands you've heard. We may not be the "typical" definition of a rock band, but we certainly take pride in the fact that we are unique. We really know how to have a good time, and love to perform. We will even play free of charge - perhaps that demonstrates how enthusiastic we are about making music. As far as the event goes, we'll play almost anything. Contact us, and for sure, you won't be disappointed. _______ Formed in July 2009, Ivy Rose is made up of Martina San Diego on lead vocals and rhythm guitar, Sarah De Leon on lead guitar, Isabelle De Leon on drums, and Kristine De Leon on bass. What inspired their music? Perhaps it was their attendance of the 2009 Vans Warped Tour...or, just like the story that is continually told, a hummingbird flying by on a summer day invoked the muse in all of them. Nonetheless, contributing each of their talents and creative ingenuity, they establish a sweet rock sound that sometimes takes a darker edge. Their influences? There are many, such as The Cranberries, Meg & Dia, and Vedera, who inspire their sound, but others such as Muse, The Cure, and Hotspur who inspire them to make music. In addition, each member also has her own influences who inspire her as a musician. Coming together one memorable summer day, who would've thought they could finish their debut album "This Adventure" so fast? In their free time, they enjoy going to concerts, making skirts, eating, and being with friends and family. http://www.myspace.com/shieldsbrothersband http://www.madbrenda.com/ http://www.myspace.com/ivyrosemusic
