OINGO BOINGO/DANNY ELFMAN tribute band DEAD MAN’S PARTY has been bringing you Boingo tunes LIVE – the way you remember ’em from actual Oingo Boingo shows – for OVER 15 YEARS! This 8-PIECE BAND has been fashioned after the ORIGINAL OINGO BOINGO LINE-UP, featuring a THREE-PIECE HORN SECTION, GUITAR, BASS, KEYS, DRUMS and a front-man so convincing that people sometimes believe that they are actually watching DANNY ELFMAN himself!
Not only has DMP been “ELFO-APPROVED” by Oingo Boingo founder & DMP supporter RICHARD ELFMAN, but at times the band has been joined on stage by FORMER OINGO BOINGO BAND MEMBERS, such as JOHN AVILA, STEVE BARTEK and JOHNNY “VATOS” HERNANDEZ.
“Hard-core Boingo fans continue to show their support and appreciation for the band’s ‘TRUE-TO-BOINGO” sound and their lead-singer’s uncanny resemblance to DANNY ELFMAN, both in looks and in vocal performance. Whether you’re an old-school MYSTIC KNIGHTS of the OINGO BOINGO fan, a DANNY ELFMAN / OINGO BOINGO fanatic, or are new to the Boingo world, DMP always delivers a HIGH-ENERGY, IN YOUR FACE PERFORMANCE that never disappoints!”
A note to our critics:
The members of Dead Man’s Party do not think they are, are not trying to be, nor do they have any delusions of being Oingo Boingo. Danny Elfman has said that he would not reunite Oingo Boingo; that’s why DMP exists. Though some former Boingo members do perform as “Oingo Boingo Dance Party Band” on occasion, Oingo Boingo is – UNFORTUNATELY – no more. No band lives forever. DMP, however IS dedicated to recreating the Oingo Boingo experience. We are not just a band paying tribute to the music of Danny Elfman and the boys of OB. We work hard to deliver that music true-as-possible to its original sound with concerts that bring Boingo concert veterans back to the good old days, and show the newbees what’s what…
