Fronted by a formidable female singer and powered by tastefully intense guitar, bass, and drums, Instigator plays danceable classic rock by artists such as the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, ZZ Top, Janis Joplin, and Aretha Franklin, along with some not-so-usual suspects and a handful of groovin' originals.
We have played at Orange County venues such as the Marine Room, Luggatti's, the Surfin' Cowboy, Swallow's Inn and are regulars at Cook's Corner. We also perform yearly at the Orange County Fair and open for national acts at the Coach House. We were a featured band at the 2012 San Clemente Microbrew Festival and recently won first place in Jim's Music Center's Battle of the Bands.
Not confined to public venues alone, Instigator has had the pleasure of being the featured entertainment for private parties as well.
Whether playing for hours or 30 minutes, Instigator never lets the energy level wane. Using wireless technology, both lead singer and bass player will mingle with the crowd, encouraging audience participation and joining in the dance party. Our music is geared to get the crowd dancing and singing along with well-known and well-loved classic rock tunes, with the occasional infusion of a deeper cut for the dedicated music lovers in the audience.
