Earlier this month, the Neon Museum announced special programming taking place on Saturday, Oct. 28, in honor of its anniversary. Those details follow:

1 to 7 p.m.: Free self-guided access to the Neon Boneyard, food trucks, cake, crafts, paper flower creation celebrating the “Day of the Dead.” Flowers will be used to decorate an altar created by artist Favela in memory of prominent sign designer Raul Rodriguez. Rodriguez designed the Flamingo sign that resides in the Boneyard and he earned national recognition for his Rose Parade float designs.

1 to 4 p.m. “Family Fiesta” event presented by artist Justin Favela in the Boneyard. “Family Fiesta” incorporates Favela’s real-life family, food, drinks and music in an unconventional outdoor setting. The public is encouraged to participate in the celebration by engaging in games, dances, music, cuisine and piñata time. In “Family Fiesta,” the event is taken out of its traditional context (a cookout in a backyard or a park) to highlight people’s expectations of a fiesta while, at the same time, dismantling notions of location and institutional inclusion.

Renowned Local Band, The Melancholics, Ranks Among Top 30 on ReverbNation Rock Charts

Melancholics

Renowned Local Band, The Melancholics, Ranks Among Top 30 on ReverbNation Rock Charts

 
The Melancholics, a group of local Las Vegan musicians, are celebrating making their way to the top 30 on ReverbNation.com. ReverbNation, an online social community, management resource and promotional tool for bands, musicians and recording artists, ranks bands based on their “Band Equity”. Currently, there are nearly 300 Las Vegas artists or bands listed on ReverbNation.com.

According to ReverbNation, Band Equity is a metric created that helps artists understand their overall brand value and how it is growing across the digital realm. This metric takes into account the total engagement of the artist across their entire base of fans and listeners, as well as their ability to convert casual listeners into “Fans” that can be contacted.

The Melancholics are Talmadge Pearsall (Vocals), Brian Lusk (Guitar), Phil Chamberlain (Guitar), Dwight Aguinaldo (Guitar), Edward Malik (Drums) and Neil Macintosh (Horns). Together since 1992, The Melancholics have recorded three albums and are currently working on their fourth, titled “It Could Be Worse”. Professionals by day and rockers by night, The Melancholics sound is a mix of Rock, Pop, and Alternative that offers a unique, refreshing sound with heartfelt lyrics and captivating melodies. Some of the band’s influences include notable bands including Cake, Death Cab for Cutie, Crowded House, Talking Heads, The Cure, China Crisis and R.E.M.

The Melancholics have built a strong reputation as a groove oriented quintet who draw on diverse influences while blending alternative rock, world beat, island folk, jam band and Brit-pop. The group performs regularly in Las Vegas and on the West Coast, and has appeared on several industry compilations, garnered North American and International radio play, recorded a soundtrack single for the skateboard movie Beyond the Neon and appeared at several industry showcases, festivals and battle of the band competitions. They were finalists in Gig Magazine’s “Best Unsigned Band” competition, and have performed live with Bamboo, opened for the Bare Naked Ladies and appeared on syndicated television shows “Back Stage Live” and “N-Side Track”. The Melancholics’ live performances range from clubs and coffee houses to appearances at the Joint at the Hard Rock, House of Blues, the Palms Hotel and the LA Fairplex. The Melancholics have a catalog of hundreds of songs, recorded on several studio self releases and compilations around the world, including one with platinum artists in the Philippines.

History of The Melancholics:
In 1992, Dwight and Jayme became brother in-laws. Both were active in the music scene in Southern California and began writing and recording their own material. As a duo, they performed in coffee houses and nightclubs as Melancholics. They recorded their first independent release on URM Records and were finalists in Musician Magazine’s Best Unsigned Competition. The band expanded, adding drums and guitar when Ed Malik and Sharim Johnson joined. They recorded Scrumptdillyumptious at Digital Insight in Las Vegas and began performing live all over the west coast. In 2004 the group recorded an album in Tagalog for distribution in the Philippines and Asia, and joined super group River Maya on a compilation. With the addition of Phil Chamberlain on electronic guitars, the groove sound most familiar to fans began to develop. Live shows at House of Blues and The Joint at Hard Rock led to an invitation to open the very first show by Bay Area Jammers, Moonalice featuring GE Smith and Jack Cassady for the Las Vegas Jam Band Society. In 2007 the band released the self-produced Happy Ones, which garnered critical success and an invitation to open the 20th anniversary tour for Bare Naked Ladies. In the last few years, The Melancholics have added Brian Lusk, an accomplished guitarist and music instructor, to the band, as well as lead vocalist Talmadge Pearsall, a seasoned musician, song and score writer and producer. Presently, The Melancholics are working with producer Bill Mansfield to record new material for the upcoming release, It Could Be Worse, and plan to perform live shows later this year and a West Coast tour in 2015.
