Riff Raff recreate the power and presence of mighty metal monsters AC/DC. The concept of the band originated with G.T. Mason and has evolved since the early 1980's. G.T.‘s love of music was formed in the crucible of the 70’s hard rock and heavy metal scene. Seeing bands like Judas Priest, Nazareth, Black Sabbath, Led Zeppelin and AC/DC when they came to Michigan to perform provided him with the the inspiration to take the stage himself and grow as an entertainer. While developing his vocal abilities in numerous groups, the burning desire to pay homage to his favorite band AC/DC continued to smolder. The sparks spread to a group of like-minded musicians and Riff Raff, the ultimate AC/DC tribute band blazed into being.

After earning a degree in Mechanical Engineering and receiving a journeymen’s electricians’ license, Brad returned to music, this time playing drums. A few years back he took up bass, playing in various blues and rock bands on stages across Michigan. Always wanting to play hard hitting music full of energy, Brad has found a home with Riff Raff.

Since then he has been developing databases, earned a degree in IT programming, and played classic, hard rock and metal sounds in various west Michigan bands.

About Us:

Tejano Sound Band, one of Lansing Michigan’s premier Tejano acts, has had a long and rich history. Co-founders, Johnny and Richard Vasquez, remember playing with their brothers “Los Hermanos Vasquez.” This led them in the path in which they are in today. Years later when the older Vasquez siblings decided to retire from music, Johnny and Richard, eventually went on in their own respective bands. In 1994, Johnny asked Richard if he wanted to start their own band like they had before. Richard accepted the invitation at which point they also picked up a partner, brother-in-law, and co-founder Frank Medellin. News spread quickly about Tejano Sound Band and they were instantly embraced by the public. Their focus was to be a crowd-pleasing band that would be as professional as they could. Tejano Sound was known for their stage presence, large sound, and light show! The band also has a lengthy list of bands that they have shared the stage with from Texas and across the country. Now, TSB is still kicking with a fresh new line up. Lupe Moreno, AJ Garcia, Andy Pizaña, Rolando Revilla, Richard Vasquez, and Johnny Vasquez and (Manager) Mark Garcia make up what is now Tejano Sound Band. Week in and week out, these guys play their hearts out to their crowds, whether it’s a full stadium or a lonely couple on the dance floor. They have always had the passion and the drive to keep Tejano Music kickin'. TSB's first release "Ahora" was released in the spring of 2008 and has already gained much popularity including featured songs on Tejano countdowns across the country. "Es Mejor Decir Adios," the bands first single, held the #1 on Bnet Radio Tejano for 5 consecutive weeks. TSB is currently working on the next CD which should be out early 2009. Be on the look out!
