So, over Labor Day weekend, I had the pleasure of seeing two very different bands. One, a Los Angeles local cover band called The Organ Donors. The other, a boyband that I’m sure many of you have heard of! Because of the amount of content I am sharing, I’m splitting these reviews up into two separate blog posts, but they will be posted back-to-back. (Read Part 2.)So, without further ado, will the first band please stand up?!
The Organ Donors are a local Los Angeles cover band who rocked the faces off their audience at a nifty little bar in Downtown Los Angeles called Casey’s Irish Pub. First off, let’s take a look at this awesome little bar:
I’ve only ever been here to see The Organ Donors, but I really love the atmosphere of this place! Perhaps it’s due to the type of crowd that the band attracts, though a lot of them oftentimes just stop by for a drink and discover the band that night. Either way, I love the personality of it all! Plus, aside from the obvious entertainment that the music itself brings, there are always some amazing dancers in the crowd. Such fun!
Okay, on to the band! The members are as follows:
Loa – Lead vocals & Guitar
David – Guitar & Backup Vocals (some lead vocals, also)
Armen – Guitar & Backup Vocals (some lead vocals, also)
Bill – Drums
They cover music from the 70s on up to current times, varying in genres from Rock N’ Roll to Pop. My personal favorites are their covers of The Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Meredith Brookes, Elle King, Guns N’ Roses and many others.
I tried to get some videos and photos, but it proved to be difficult on my phone. For this time, we’ll have to deal with the darkness and slightly poor quality. I’ll do a mini post with better quality photos and videos after their next show! In the meantime, check these out!
So, this is where part one of my concert reviews ends, but part two will be posted shortly after. So check out The Organ Donors online, and if you’re in the Los Angeles area, check them out live sometime! They’ll be at Judge Roy Bean’s in Simi Valley this coming Friday, September 16th and Saturday, September 17th. Plus, they’re at Casey’s Irish Pub on the first Friday of every month! Plus, they have various other dates at other locations, so follow them on Facebook to keep up with it all! I hope to see you guys there sometime!
