I am a big fan of LGB and am very honored to know a few of the members as friends! I really respect their work ethic, their dedicated vision, and their cohesive sound. Fresno’s best band ever? Easily argued (but I will ALWAYS love The Wild Blue Yonder!!!) They have made a major mark in their field on third wave ska with their ability to stay fresh sound-wise, and were a major influence on many other bands incl No Doubt. But, they usually perform so late that this “older fellow” is very challenged to, well, stay awake to be able to make the scene. To have a chance to see them at Fulton 55, Fresno’s premiere night club/music venue, with 40 watt Hype as support, would be so awesome!

Both. Two great bands!

This is a hard choice!
I love 40 Watt Hype because they’re incredibly talented but more so because during my heavy-hitting, fundraising days, they always gave back to the community of Fresno. Always.
LGB is near and dear to my heart because they are incredibly talented and also quite a few of my friends are in the band!!!
