Super MadNES
"Super MadNES is a Los Angeles, CA based tribute to retro video games and traditional 80s heavy metal music, creating riff-oriented guitar & synth arrangements to classic NES, SNES and arcade soundtracks.
In only two years, the band has done three very well received releases, built a following in the US and through social media, appeared in chiptune compilations such as “Flipped” by Chiptunes=WIN, toured throughout several states in the country, and performed at major gaming events such as Anime Expo, Bit Gen Gamer Fest, MAGwest, Retro City Festival, Replay FX, California Extreme, Game On Expo and Arcade Expo to name a few.
In summer of 2018, the band released their 2nd full length NES themed album “Gothic Warriors” featuring “Castlevania III” and “Batman” soundtracks and have just finished a very successful run of tours in both the east and west coast performing the music from classic games such as Castlevania III, Batman, Double Dragon, Ninja Gaiden, Megaman X and Super Ghouls ’N Ghost along with an action fueled pixelated visual show.”
Extra Lives
Extra Lives
Just ask the lovable nerds of Extra Lives. The Los Angeles-based quartet of gamer-musicians isn't ready to let go of their Nintendo and Sega childhoods... and neither should you.
Ken Christianson (bass and violin), Michael Kohl (guitar), Tim Lillis (piano and synthesizer) and Taylor Kennedy (drums and percussion) release a new performance of a classic video game tune every single Monday. Each piece is recorded live in a single take, with deference to the original video game composers. From the epic drama of Chrono Trigger's "Main Theme" to the rump-thumping funk of Sonic the Hedgehog 2's "Chemical Plant Zone," Extra Lives creates compelling soundscapes that breathe new life into VGM classics and bring listeners back to the best days of yesteryear.
