No words ever spoken are more true. Especially for the diverse group of musicians in A Son y Sol.
Passion is what gets into you, it infects and blooms within your spirit, causing a flood of emotion inside you. This is what I believe Latin music does to most people. To those sitting and listening, we can’t help but bob our foot to the beat. Different than rock or metal, Latin is as passion-driven as blues. It lives inside the rhythm, the heartbeat of the bass, or in this case in Engel Indo’s cajón.

I find myself increasingly fortunate to be able to experience amazing bands that are performing around Tucson. One such band, Silverbell, is a fairly new one, together just about a year, though their members are veterans to the music scene. It is musicians like the ones in Silverbell that have a gift running from their vocal chords and fingers, through their mics and cables and out their amps begging to be heard.
The tagline of the this band should be a good indicator of just what kind of show you’re getting ready to see when you walk into a local bar to see Crash Academy. Like your favorite sweater or comfort food, Crash Academy is the type of band that you appreciate over time. One reason being they are a cover band, so there’s an instant familiarity, and they are one of the very few in town that play mainly Alternative 90’s rock. However, their range stretches from popular classic rock to what’s popular on the radio today.
