Fantastic rock band mixing it up to create a great sound indeed. Having so many influences from Deep Purple to Eric Clapton these guys have gone where not many will attempt to tread and succeeded. Listening to them you can clearly pic out there talented way in which you have old school metal mixed with classic rock then some alternative for good measure. Vocally supersonic, Lyrically superb and the music bleeds awesomeness with every beat.
Blue Plasma Orb Band (BPO) is a melodic hard rock band from Laguna Beach California. The band (BPO) was founded by Billy Bishop (Guitar) and Steve Bonino (Bass/Vox) in 2013 as a result of their desire to revisit the music pioneered by the legends of rock. Drawing on the vast influences of bands such as Deep Purple, AC/ DC, Led Zeppelin, Aerosmith, Eric Clapton, Blue Oyster Cult and Judas Priest, to name but a few, they started songwriting. They first released the single “Lightning N’ver Strikes Twice” followed by the full album. The duo decided to put out a video and, as they were sitting on a large backlog of riffs, they decided to develop a second 12 track album which was released November 1, 2015.
The first and second albums were put together with the help and confluence of good friends. On the first album Billy and Steve drafted experienced professionals Greg Peters on guitar and Matt Magiera on drums. On the second album the duo brought aboard keyboard player Martin Gerschwitz (Iron Butterfly, Meatloaf, Walter Trout, Eric Burdon, Vanilla Fudge and Lita Ford) and Jimmy Keegan, a hard hitting drummer known for his work with Santana, John Waite, Selena and Kenny Loggins. To round things off, well known local favorite Richard Bredice was brought in as lead guitarist.
