Hello we are Cosmic Boogaloo
We are a professional variety band. Cosmic Boogaloo would love to perform at your venue, or event. This band performs as a versatile duo featuring Tony Ghiglieri on guitar and lead vocals; with Dean Brownell on bass, lead and harmony vocals, acoustic guitar, keyboards, and harmonica. We’ve often been known to play lots of Classic Rock, Blues, Foot-stomping Country Western, Southern Fried Rock, Oldies but Goodies, R&B; some Motown, couple Surf tunes, a few Alternatives, maybe a touch of Jazz, and even a bit of Folk music if needed.
This duo has a few dimensions to it. We can perform as a strong acoustic based act, which includes lots of hits made famous by acoustic artist, or we can add a drum machine, a few tracks and loops in order to capture a live band sound. Of course just to keep it interesting we enjoy giving an audience a little of both acoustic as well that full-band sound. We pride ourselves on fitting our musical performances to our audiences’ desire and needs.
We also often work as a trio adding live drums to our duo, and we have some great professional fourth and fifth pieces we work with on a regular basis; for that full-live energetic band experience that some audiences crave. We are always willing and able to put together a show to cover just about any venue or event. Our motto is always “Play to the Crowd” interacting with our audience and performing all the requests we can! We appreciate your time and consideration of Cosmic Boogloo, and your support of live music.
We look forward to hearing from you soon!
