Ventura County Band Direct Support For Dead Man’s Party – Friday, June 29      (VENTURA) – Feisty Piranhas may have changed their name (to PIRANHA), but the rhythmically tight, finely-tuned power-pop/punk that has made this group a well-known commodity in Southern California for the last decade  hasn’t changed a bit.      Check out PIRANHA as they provide Direct Support for popular Oingo Boingo tribute act Dead Man’s Party at The Canyon Club, 28912 Roadside Dr., Agoura Hills, Friday, June 29. 8 p.m. Contact the band directly for tickets: pal3@thefeistypiranhas.com. Look for the band to perform material from their highly-anticipated new album which is set to drop this Summer.     Also on the horizon: A show with D.R.I. at the Majestic Ventura Theater on Friday, October 5.

“PIRANHA has a very melodic but in-your-face sound that mixes punk, reggae, ska, and pop punk…at The Key Club the band were able to play to the crowd’s needs and gained new fans with their Sublime-ish/reggae-ish tone of music. Even the hard rockers were clapping to the PIRANHAS groove, finishing it off with a solid cover of Guns N’ Roses “Sweet Child O’ Mine.”  -ALL ACCESS MAGAZINE “PIRANHA have sunk their teeth into the SoCal music scene.” VENTURA COUNTY STAR  “PIRANHA came down from Ventura County to spread the concept of community and integrity throughout the independent music scene as well as to properly rock out an eight?song set…the band put on a valiant display,, serving as the perfect appetizer for FEAR’s eight?course beating.”     WEST HOLLYWOOD PATCH

“PIRANHA is led on vocals and guitar by 24 year-old Peter Alexander Lust III and backed up by his father, Peter Lust (“Pops”), a spacecraft consultant by day and punk rock drummer by night. The show should make for an interesting audience mix as the more mature B.O.C. fans mingle with some feisty pop punkers in the pit.”   VENTURA COUNTY REPORTER

“PIRANHA played an amazing show…their stage presence is awesome and they’re great guys to boot.”
