Bletchley is a Miami-based band that is composed of the following members: Jevon Olea (on lead vocals/rhythm guitar); Ivan Guererro (on lead guitar/vocals); Javier Negreiros (on bass guitar) and J.c. Diaz (drums/vocals)..with more than 15 years combined experience playing various venues and crowds from all over, Bletchley provides soothing music with their "party-hard, rock out" attitude that really brings down the house through a medium they all know as music.
With a real "chill" personality, lead singer Jevon Olea does not like a quiet non-participating crowd. He often encourages audience members to sing along and go crazy with the songs. He often believes "true human contact and interaction through the crowd singing along, and short interactive dialogs in-between songs are what audiences remember you for in the end. Your ability to connect with them." He adds, "they make the effort to come see you. The least you can do is to acknowledge them for being there."
J.c. Diaz was born to play drums. With experience playing large venues, and with an extensive background playing Christian rock, as well as hardrock he brings a cool groove to the band. His showmanship is so contagious that at the end of the show, you want to learn how to play the drums. He is so graceful and with a very approachable personality, he is very friendly on and off stage. With his, "let's do it" attitude, he sure will show up to any gig and you are guaranteed a good time with his drum beats.
Javier Negreiros plays the bass like he is married to it. His bass lines are what get you going. His showmanship on stage does express his passion for his craft. Playing the bass for more than 15 years, since he was a teenager, he sure knows his way around the frets. He will amuse you of how cool a song can turn out and get you out of your chair and just dancing along with the groove...and the funny thing is, this band does not play disco-type songs!
Ivan Guererro, with an extensive background playing internationally in sold out crowds in Peru to various venues in Miami, sure knows how to play the guitar. He plays lead guitar and is very precise about his notes. But do not mistake his serious passion with his attitude. This guy is so laid back that in-between sets, he will randomly hang-out with you and just have a beer. Often inspired by huge Latin artists, like Soda Stereo, he brings that influence into the mix giving a very cool sound to the songs. If you see a guy carrying a huge amp and cabinet, that is not the band's roadie. Ivan usually likes to carry his own equipment as he feels he is one with his instruments. And he surely does show that on stage. He is the crazy one on stage too. Often seen jumping around, he sure has a way to transport his energy to the crowd.
If you are looking to have a good time and forget about life for a while, you surely would want to see Bletchley for a night to remember
