Indigo Mars is Victor Muñoz, Christian Lugo, Mike Canton, Freddie Munoz and Bennie Lovato. Each member having their own individual and personal background in music, but finding a way to come together to make it sound just right.
This group of eclectic musicians have come together to form a proper ending to the drab music seen today. This is the hard hitting Alternative-Rock band from the Los Angeles area that sacrifices nothing in the pursuit of giving you the great music you’ve been in desperate search of. Performing countless shows in venues across the greater Los Angeles, Orange County, and the Inland Empire, Indigo Mars has developed a loyal fan base that has consistently packed the house every time they step out on stage. The great energy these guys bring carries off stage though, making them easily accessible to the average fan who wants to hang out after show.
Victor, Vocalist, is a veteran of the local music scene, and has been involved with music in one form or another all his life. He comes from a musical family, and actually started his journey behind the drums, drumming for Kiosko, a Rock en Español band. It wasn’t until his Advanced Guitar class with instructor Victor Solotoff that he ventured in front of the Mic. Victor’s influences range from the Norteño music he was immersed in growing up, to the Hardcore Punk of his youth, and everything in between.
Mike, Lead Guitar/Vocals, hails from Chicago, IL, by way of Miami FL, and is new to the LA scene. He has spend a good portion of his life in and out of Hard Rock bands, and has a degree in music from Loyola of Chicago. He likes his meat rare, His metal heavy, his hair long and his women preferably conscious. His Guitar is his axe, and he wields it with reckless abandon. Let the slam dancing commence.
Bennie, Guitarist, really enjoys playing music whether its pop radio friendly rock or vulgar death metal. He has been in and out of bands since the age of 13, striving to take his music career to the next level. Nothing is more important to him than playing his music flawlessly live, which means, he spends about 2-3 hours practicing daily working on his fret work, performance, and knowledge about the instrument.
Christian, Drummer, has been behind the kit starting at the tender age of 10, was inspired to pick up the sticks after his parents, who were playing spanish rock music on the radio, asked him if he could follow along to the beat. Joining band from elementary through high school, he was a drum captain for many years and eventually after high school he became their Drum Instructor. He's a heavy hitter with a slick drum style and is the reason why we have EARTHQUAKES in CALIFORNIA!!! His musical influences go from the Alternative-Rock to Reggae, Latin Rock to Punk , and enjoys rhythm heavy groups such as The Mars Volta, Muse, Coheed and Cambria, and Protest the hero and etc.
