There are different things going on in Miami….
I would say there is a garage revival in the last years, and there is always the punk hardcore and the metal heads scenes going on. The good thing is that there is always something going on around town. As a band musically we have really come together and we are proud of what we’ve created. On the marketing side, the music business sounds really far away from our reality. We are in DIY reality right now. Booking, promoting, recording everything must be done in house by the band members. You go little by little, day by day, gig after gig and hope for the best. It’s a really focused effort but when the passion is there, you just got for it and keep taking that next step.
I would love to have 5 minutes alone with…
With Brooke Shields in her “The Blue Lagoon” time and have an amazing night under the Miami sky like Perro Negro did with the sweat little punk rocker… Liv Tayler in the Crazy video is another good option too! We admire them 4sho…the only problem is that 5 minutes is too short!!
Song name: Qué hiciste Perro Negro?
Music Genre/ category : Rock and roll
I personally wanted to write a song with the name of the band on it, but I want it to do it in a different way. I don’t want it to be like we are Perro Negro, and we are like this and that….which is very common with other bands, so I create this character named Perro Negro, an old school rocker, and to be honest he is half an animal and half a human, hahahaha. So the song is a story about a rock and roll nite with Perro Negro in the streets of Miami.
We are a 3-piece band so our music is raw and intense, but at the same time we like to have a good melody lines to sing along. We are about to record our first album and I think is gonna show all the colors and materials we have in our hands to create music. You will listen to some punk, proto-punk, hard rock, garage rock, and alternative rock blend all together. If you are a fan of rock and roll music most likely you will like our first album.
