Mike in the directors chair at Big Bad Sound LA
Last year we played just one show, a combo of Fourth of July concerts sponsored by two U.S. Embassies, from a studio in Los Angeles. We recently cut together the footage in full so we could play for you virtually. We can't wait to be back in front of you for real, once some blue sky has emerged through this pandemic and our new album is in your hands. Big Bad Sound LA

Featuring Julian Cisneros, Hannah Moroz, Raquel Rodriguez and Zach Fisher (Big Bad Sound LA), the four talented artists talk about the role music plays in their lives while showing four different settings that the Soyuz Launcher thrives in.
