MHI Entertainment Proudly Announces the Birth of "the Tragedy Club"
"The Tragedy Club" creating music that goes beyond what is expected from an (Rock/Pop Rock/Alternative) band of 2007. With former "Spiders and Snakes" bassist, Marty Haviik, legendary guitarist Mike Taylor, singer/songwriter Joe Laguna, and drummer extraordinaire Mark Lopez, it is sure guarantee that there will not be a dull moment with this band.
"The Tragedy Club" are the multi-talented group known for their catchy hooks, unassuming lyrics, and funk rock till you drop concerts. Shrouded in a sense of mystery from the name of the group to the band members themselves. "The Tragedy Club" creates music that goes beyond what is expected from an (Rock/Pop Rock/Alternative) band of 2007, while not being afraid to experiment and push the envelope. This Arizona band are known for their do it yourself ethic, and continue to grow as writers, musicians, producers, and performers (that continues to influence fans around the world). With former "Spiders and Snakes" bassist, Marty Haviik, legendary guitarist Mike Taylor, singer/songwriter Joe Laguna, and drummer extraordinaire Mark Lopez, it is sure guarantee that there will not be a dull moment with this band.
"The Tragedy Club" means absolutely nothing. "It's 100 percent completely arbitrary (for no reason)," laughs bassist Marty Haviik. "When I decided to form the band, I didn't put too much thought into the name. It came natural. I only cared about having a good time, writing good songs, and having fun, far more than coming up with some symbolic, incredibly intelligent name. I think its funny when bands scramble their brains to try and come up with some unique, untouchable band name. Why waste time thinking of something when the band could be concentrating on music instead? Friends loved it, so I went with it."
For a band that has always found inspiration in authenticity originality, and a DIY ethic, getting back to that place what a rock band is all about, was essential to getting back to basics - making sense and having fun. Their ability to fuse different musical styles along with creativity contributed by each band member, and present "The Tragedy Club" with unlimited opportunities for writing, composing, and performing. This "do-what-we-feel" approach to song-writing and recording captures the kind of jamming and improvising that happens when musicians become keenly tuned in to one another. What next in 2007? "The Tragedy Club" are planning to hit the studio in 2007, then embark on a US tour towards the end of the year. A great first chapter in "The Tragedy Club" bands career. But, to be sure, with Mike Taylor, Marty Haviik, Mark Lopez, and Joe Laguna, it is the first chapter in the story of a band that promises to be around for a long, long time.
