The Aggrolites w/ Mike Pinto and Triple Double
Thursday, March 22nd 6:30PM
ike Pinto has crafted an exceptional style of songwriting, with a truly unique take on Roots, Vintage Rock, Reggae, Ska and Classic Surf, but it’s his distinct voice and seamless storytelling that have brought him success both in the States and overseas.
With the release of his debut album (LITTLE DISTRICT, 2005), Pinto began his attack on the Philadelphia music scene as a solo artist. By 2006, underground success and a rabid growing fanbase allowed him to expand westward with two nationwide solo acoustic tours. After the second tour, Pinto landed in San Diego, CA where he immersed himself in the thriving Southern California music scene quickly gaining a name. His infectious sound garnered so much attention that Insomnia Radio added his single “One More Time” amidst a hard hitting compilation of the SoCal sound’s brightest groups.
Dubbed as the soul-soothing funky reggae blues party, Triple Double Band fuses together a vivid collection of styles that dazzle folks with their highly energetic live performances. Brothers Tom and Jimi started playing music together in their home in 1995. After playing in various bands and writing music together throughout high school, the brothers reunited with childhood friend Preston Winter in 2003, and Triple Double was born.
Playing in Tucson together as a power trio since 2003, Trip Dub boosted their sound by adding talented keyboard player Alex Sandweiss in early 2008. Triple Double continues to write songs that arouse love for fellow humanity, nature, and exuberance. Their full-length third album, Dot My Eighths, is a reflection of their raw and undisputed passion for music.
