Johnny Vatos
Boingo Dance Party

Johnny Vatos, along with a large powerful band that includes former members, Sam "Sluggo" Phipps on Sax, Carl Graves on vocals/keyboards, and Doug Legacy, who played on most of all the albums and toured for years in the band, on keyboards.

We've got some new Blood too!

The band includes Brendan McCreary on lead vocals, Mike the Spike on rhythm guitar/vocals, Freddy Hernandez on bass and Woody Aplanalp on lead guitar. The ensemble also features the signature "Great Horn Section" with Brian Swartz on trumpet, Wendell Kelly on trombone and of course "Sluggo" on sax.

We're Playing the Songs
That you Remember and Love.

The Set list has varied from year to year, but we always play it full tilt! This non-stop set includes all the Boingo hits that keep the fans moving and coming back for more: Dead Man's Party, Just Another Day, Little Girls, Stay, Only A Lad, No Spill Blood, just to name a few! Deep cuts like Cinderella Undercover, Reptiles and Samurai, and Forbidden Zone Too!

"I was there!" says Vatos!
"When it comes to Oingo Boingo Music we are the best on the planet!"

This not a "Civil War" reenactment, but living functioning High Energy JOHNNY VATOS spectacular! Fans new and old are having great times again at Johnny Vatos' Dead Man's Party. If you remember the band, if you've never seen the band, you will be moving to the beat of a Southern California "Party Institution".
