Members Joseph Demirjian (vocalist), Peter Cortés (bassist), Billy Shank (guitarist), Qusai Asaad (guitarist), and Ryan Kemmer (drummer) are known to put on a high-energy performance that has captured audiences since their inception.
Tucson, Arizona brings you alternative metal band, Pyrotechnica. With heavy riffs, dancey synths, pop feels, and catchy choruses; Pyrotechnica has created a unique sound that has drawn attention wherever they perform. After releasing their self titled album produced by Alex Best of Elastik Labs Studios and releasing three music videos directed by Lance Gergar, Pyrotechnica have pushed themselves out on the road to show the world what they’re about. The band has opened for big names such as Shinedown, Papa Roach, Asking Alexandria, Fever 333, Haken, 10 years, From Ashes to New, Trapt, Entheos, Xandria, Kobra and the Lotus, Kingdom of Giants, New Years Day, Stitched Up Heart, and Thank You Scientist.

Juggling both academics and music, Galactic Cactus was formed by five determined students at the University of Arizona in January of 2019. The five piece rock group began playing at house parties and local coffee shops in Tucson, spreading their music with as many fans as possible. After months of practicing and songwriting, Galactic Cactus opened for Pride in the Pines in Flagstaff, Arizona after releasing their first single, “Monkey Man,” in June of 2019. They are currently in the studio working on their next single, and first full-length album.
