Dantes Boneyard / Press

“Performance: Energy We thought your track had rousing energy that moved us as listeners. You sound confident in your musical skills and the parts you're playing. Vocals - Background Great background vocals can really enrich a melody and song. Yours impressed us. Vocals - Lead Lead vocals are the first thing that most listeners pay attention to, so a great performance is essential. Your lead vocals really grabbed us. We don't tag a lot of releases as having great lead vocals, so this is an excellent strength for you to have. Songwriting: Excellent Qualities Melody Above almost everything else, melody is an essential musical quality. Yours jumped out at us. Good melodies don't come easy; you should be proud. ”

“You can't really completely pin it down on any one aspect, but you know deep in your gut that with the next project these guys put out, if taken to the next level overall (songwriting, performances and production), all the pieces will fall into place. So much so that even for someone who doesn't necessarily like radio rock can listen to their stuff and in the back of their mind think, "Yup, that's how it's supposed to sound." For a local band to get that close to hitting the mark, it takes some tenacity, which I'm sure they'll continue to exercise on their way to the top.”

“Reggae-flavored rockers Dante’s Boneyard self-released their debut mixtape in Autumn 2010, with a release party and performance at that year’s Tattoo Body Art Expo.”

“Dante's Boneyard will release their first album Social Tsunami Feb. 1, but earlier this week the band with IB roots published their music video "Not Jaded" on YouTube. Dez Cleo, vocalist Jae Rose's girlfriend, plays the lead role in the video which was shot almost entirely in Imperial Beach. Cleo's first video for her own singing career is due out on Valentines Day. In late 2010 the group released their extended play or mixtape Coming in Hot and last summer they beat out other local bands to win the Musicpalooza competition and $5,000. Dante's Boneyard will play at Pure Platinum Gentlemen's Club in San Diego Saturday evening and may play at the end of the month at The Salty Frog in Imperial Beach. In 2012 the group wants to play more shows across Southern California, Rose said, and will "start looking for more reputable promoters who want to see music thrive instead of stealing from bands." Projects with Sullen Clothing Company may also be in the works. ”

“This is a hard-working bunch of young men with the right attitude for the music business, very focused, very professional, with that cool California vibe that bands like Pepper and Slightly Stoopid have made famous—with a splash of Blink-182 thrown in. They just won 1st Place at the Del Mar Fair Battle of the Bands with a $5,000.00 first prize! We have just aired one of their new tracks, “Favorite Mistake“ two weeks in a row on the Q103.3 Sunday Night Music Meeting. They are currently in the studio with famed producer Ronnie King (Snoop Dogg, Mariah Carey, Offspring) completing a new release of their upcoming album, Social Tsunami.”

“Dante's Boneyard, which includes Imperial Beach guitarist Erick Switzer, won first place in Musicpalooza, a competition between local artists and bands, at the San Diego County Fair last week. Hosted by FM 94.9 and DJ Tim Pyles, the competition sent the band home with the $5,000 top prize.”

“Dantes Boneyard isn't your latest edition of the popular Ocean Beach Reggae Rock band Slightly Stoopid. Instead, the San Diego quartet plays on the harder side of the musical tracks and have created a different sound. As they put it, it is a Punk/Rock/Reggae (not in that genre order) mix they have perfected the past few years and it has been gaining traction in San Diego and other parts of SoCal. When their drummer "Lunch Box" invited me to their most recent show and album release party @ Pure Platinum (Kearney Mesa), I couldn't resist covering a show at a "non typical" music venue.”

“Local Band Dantes Boneyard Wins 2011 San Diego Musicpalooza On August 5th, Dantes Boneyard opened up at the Unwritten Law show, which took place at the House of Blues in Downtown, San Diego. It was a rock ‘n’ roll performance as they pumped the crowd with some hard-rock music. With mohawks and an unruly kind of vibe, these guys blasted music into people’s ears. Some songs were also slow-rock and about modern-day relationships, including a song called “Walk Away.” The band played a song called “Not Jaded,” which they told the audience they are making a video for. Towards the end of their performance, a female guest dressed in a shiny red corset came out to pump up the crowd more and help sing a song. Overall, the band addressed the crowd well with Jae Rose, the singer, being humorous in-between songs. For more information on the band, check out www.dantesboneyard.com”
