Crash Crash is a country blues band. The band is composed of Lucas Mamede (drums), João Gevaerd (vocals, harmonica and acoustic guitar), Raul Chataigner (bass), Bruno de Freitas (banjo, harmonica e lap steel guitar) and Joao Pedro Bonfá (guitar).
Inspired by body of work of artists like Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins, Elvis, Muddy Waters and country blues classics, the band’s concert is a travel through time, with the chords of the banjo, the musical arrangement and the set list taking us back to the early days of rock ‘n’ roll in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, with original songs and updated cover versions of songs by the songwriters and idols that influenced the Beatles and the Rolling Stones.
Crash Crash never goes unnoticed. The band served as the opening act for Capital Inicial, playing for crowds of over 40,000 people, traveled across the US, produce their own music videos and are to release a EP later this year. They pledge to fill Rock in Rio and the Rout 85 area with plenty of rock ‘n’ roll and good music.
