The 88's are an international band with influences of Hard Rock, Progressive Rock, Funk and Latin music.
Luis, Pheel and Joe first met on stage during a jam session in 2009, and the guys continued jamming regularly. Audiences were left in no doubt of their ability to rock, but the idea of starting a band was delayed due to conflicts in their busy schedule. In 2011, that idea came to fruition and Luis decided to write songs for an original band. He had a clear agenda: to write music that caputred the intensity and chemistry of the band live, and in the studio. With his musical ideas in place ... and with Pheel’s lyrics and vocal melodies, the band came together to record their demo. 5 original tracks were arranged, produced, mixed and mastered by Luis. This is how The 88's were born.
In the studio and in live performance, The 88’s are sometimes joined by special guest vocalist Lola. The beautiful track “Shanghai Balada“ was a collaboration between her and vocalist Pheel. Her singing style at times will remind the listener of great artists such as Janis Joplin, and neo-soul artists like Erykah Badu.
The 88's play shows that rock audiences. From the first note, to the final "thank you", The 88's energize and inspire!
