    CD RELEASE PARTY for OIL IN THE ALLEY's new album "SACRED SNAIL." Sacred Snail was recorded live in the KTUH studios and professionally engineered by Lock Lynch, with breathtaking album art by Michy Moody (see attached photo). The recording features 9 songs with improvised lyrics set to all-original music, along with improvised banter as the band discusses their storied career. OIL IN THE ALLEY is a unique music act which features original rock music along with polished improvisational humor. The show’s premise is this: the band was a hugely famous megasuperstar arena rock act 20+ years ago and has now hit the road on a Reunion Tour comeback attempt. In performance, the members of the band are always in character; there is no “improviser host” persona asking for suggestions. Instead, the rockers extract ideas for song titles by talking with their megafans in the audience and using ideas from clothing, turns of phrase, and anything else to inspire a song. They then extemporaneously create completely new lyrics to an original rock song as if it were a “Classic” Oil in the Alley hit from their heyday. The act takes advantage of the humor of the rockstar life and mythos but does not parody any particular musicians or spoof identifiable songs. OIL IN THE ALLEY is Sean T.C. O'Malley (Guitar and Lead Vocals), R. Kevin Garcia Doyle (Lead Vocals), Bri X (Bass and cool), and Dan Cutter (Drums and Backing Vocals). https://www.facebook.com/OILINTHEALLEY BUSEKRUS is a polished, tuneful, alt/pop/rock band with songwriting soul and melodic hooks. Their 2014 album, BoomBox Starship, is loaded with rock tunes that stick in your head. The band, formed in 2006, has played hundreds of shows and toured the mainland on several occasions. Pronounce it Boo-Zee-cruise, and then say they’ve won a Hawaii Music Award for Best Rock Album, a Hawaii Underground Music Award for Indie Band of the year, a Scene Choice Award for Band of the Year, a Band Achievement Award from Nemesis Productions, and a STAR 101.9 Battle of the Bands. Their lyrics are smart, their songs are catchy, their energy is infectious. BUSEKRUS is Markus Busekrus (lead vocals/guitar), Demitri Marmash (bass guitar/backup vocals), Mike Jones (drums), and Mike Schmidt (guitar/backup vocals). https://www.facebook.com/busekrus BOTOROKE is Johnny Boto’s take on Karaoke—which goes on into the wee hours of the morning.
