The original Oingo Boingo band or lineup was created back in 1979 and was known for its experimental sound and a band that dabbled into different genres, such as punk, jazz, and rock. And the thing that made the band so unique is their incorporation of varying horn instruments in their music. Even after going through several lineup changes before Oingo Boingo Former Members came to be, the band was able to create and maintain a solid fanbase in the Golden State of California and still manages to sell out shows of the band regularly. The city of Los Angeles even honoured the band by declaring April 16, 2016, as “Oingo Boingo Day”.
“A fucking fantastic performance. I know these post-Oingo Boingo performances have become some good stuff, and I'm glad I joined in on this shit.” A fan comments on one of the band’s 2022 live performances in Arizona.
The event is hyped even more because they are bringing The Tubes, with their mix of progressive rock theatre, multimedia; Dramarama, an alternative rock power pop band and The Untouchables, soul or mod revival band.
