Jason Constantine and JP Michaels have known each other the last 2 years. They have shared the stage together multiple times at different points during benefits and fund raisers. Michael Maysonet was playing with JP in Vinyl Tattoo occasionally and talked about working together on original material. David Reed Watson and Jason had been talking about working together when David made the move to Las Vegas. JP and Jason knew David, and JP knew Michael, so Electric Messiah was formed. This "marrage" of great musicians create music like noone else. Its solid, dark, progressive rock that screams for your attention. Just check out some of their videos and see for yourself why they're the most talked about band in Las Vegas.

What can be said about this tribute band but " Is that Tom Petty?" J P Michaels straps on the "Tele" and "Rick" while putting on the Gainesville accent as he transforms himself into Tom Petty. Z Maddox plays all the guitar parts with accuracy while Lez Warner brings up the low end on bass. Fred Benzi plays the "keys" and Peter Dallas keeps the drum beats on time. If you're a Tom Petty fan you won't be disappointed by the next best thing. "You Got Lucky"

Rok Of Ages plays all your "80s" and "90s' rock favorites.
