Our City Radio Independent Rock Station
From the Indie Rock Scene to your living room!
Before the name Our City Radio was ever conceived, 2 brothers sat at a kitchen table one late afternoon and asked each other the most serious question of their lives. Both struggling in their personal lives, teaching themselves to play the guitar, and feeling more and more like there was something bigger than them both. They made a choice that day and soon afterward, Maxx and Bruno hit the airwaves in a caveman like set-up that started the independent rock streaming, and eventually gave birth to multiple websites, networks and various independent radio stations across the country! It all started with the Rock Station.
Indie and Independent Rock
When you don’t belong to a label, or don’t want to, the public has a tendency to call it Indie Rock, which is actually a form of alternative rock that originated in the United Kingdom and the United States in the 1980s. Indie rock is extremely diverse, with sub-genres that include lo-fi, post-rock, math rock, indie pop, dream pop, noise rock, space rock, sadcore, riot grrrl and emo, among others. Yes, I linked those all to wikipedia cuz I copied that line directly so I didn’t have to type it! The indie genre’s above cover a pretty wide arena in the rock stadium, especially in the independent field. That was confusing wasn’t it? Indie is the style of rock, independent refers to the artists being supported by a label or doing it solo. Get it? I hope so cuz even I’m confused now!
Here is What’s Hot in Rock Industry
An Interview With Pounders
SJOCR: Greetings friends and listeners of San Jose Our City Radio. It is my pleasure to introduce to you, direct from San Jose California, Pounders. Pounders is Chris Pounders on vocals and guitar, Alonso Hernandez on bass, and Justin Imamura on drums.
(Crowd applause and thumping rock music.
The virtual crowd gets up and cheers for a moment.)
SJOCR: (motions for calmness) Hello! Thank you for doing this interview with me. How are you feeling today?
Pounders: We are feeling thirsty….these pretzels are making us thirsty!
SJOCR: Damnit! those are supposed to be thirst-less pretzels. Hey Mr. Producer, you put the wrong pretzels out. Sorry about that guys. I’ll fire him after the interview. So please tell me what first brought you to the music scene while we wait for those special pretzels?
Pounders: For each of us, music has been in our blood. We have all done music, in one form or another, since grade school and it really is all that we know. It’s a privilege to be a part of a bay area music scene that is on the cusp of popping again.
SJOCR: I feel that popping sensation too. No Mr. Producer we don’t want Popcorn. You all don’t want Popcorn do you?
Pounders: Only if it’s from a Christmas tin.
SJOCR: Where were you and the other band members born and raised? Where is it that you now call home?
Pounders: We are all San Jose boys. Justin is a Campbell resident, Chris is on the San Jose/Campbell border, and Alonso is on the Eastside of San Jose…which is the Mexico border.
SJOCR: We also have chips if the pretzels are too salty. No? Okay. Well, how did you choose your band name?
Pounders: We had a few choices, but ultimately, Chris had the coolest last name. I don’t know where we would be with the band name Imamura or Hernandez. We’d probably be playing in Sake houses or Tejano clubs. Maybe not such a bad thing, we hear they pay well.
SJOCR: We don’t like to talk about money here at the station. It makes Mr. Producer thinks he’s underpaid. Growing up, what bands influenced you the most?
Pounders: The great thing about the 3 of us is that we all come from different musical backgrounds. Chris likes a lot of 80s music, Justin has a punk background and Alonso is a metal head. We do have a lot of bands that we all share love for. Bands like The Clash, The Police, Rancid, The Cure, and The Misfits are pretty prevalent in our music today.
SJOCR: The South Bay has a lot of talent influenced by those bands. We also have our share of movers and shakers. How long have you been in the Music business? How did you get started?
Pounders: We started playing together the summer of 2006. We were a part of a show called “School Of Rock” at Great America. It was pretty cool, every day we played Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, Pat Benatar, Guns N Roses and other killer covers. In between shows, we started jamming and writing tunes of our own. Being in a music environment all day with each other made it so easy.
There was chemistry between the three of us from the start,
so we just went with it.
SJOCR: Chemistry is very important in a group of individuals intent on making their mark. Do you have a favorite performer or band?
Pounders: Some of the best times we have had have been when we are able to go to shows together as a band to see those that inspired us. Weezer, Blink 182, AFI, Pennywise, Papa Roach, Lagwagon, Danzig w/ Doyle and Alkaline Trio are some of the great shows that we have been able to enjoy as a group. These bands always bring it.
SJOCR: Seeing shows like that has many rewards and offers musicians a good lesson in what it means to be a consummate performer. Have you had a good deal of success with your music? Could you tell us more about recording your music and or videos?
Pounders: We have been fortunate enough to see some successes that we are proud of. Our album Chasing The Sun was sold in Hot Topic, our music played on several college and commercial radio stations, had our music featured on videos for ESPN and we have played some pretty killer shows. We did the main stage San Francisco Pride festival, Warped Tour, and, probably the coolest on a personal level, had the opportunity to open for Alkaline Trio in a hometown show. We have a blast recording our music. We have a great working relationship with our super producer Steve Murr.
He just gets us and knows what we want from our music. That really does make our job a whole lot easier. Videos are another story. Those can be some tough tough days.
Our first video for Chasing The Sun was directed by Frank Door.
He did a great job making us look like badasses. It was a dark video and showed a theatrical side of us. For our next video, we worked with Colin Goheen, bassist of Our Vinyl Vows.
He and Ricky Kelley went in a totally different direction. We chose our song “Scream And Let It Go”, and we went bright, colorful and in your face! We think it really captures our live show quite well.
NOTE: Colin and Ricky’s video/media company is called Mark of the Bear
SJOCR: Cool. It’s always nice to form those types of affiliations. Tell me a little about your creative process. How do you find inspiration?
Pounders: We get inspiration through each other. It may sound a little cheesy but it’s entirely true. We are all confident in the skill set of each other member and that makes all the difference. We don’t try to overthink songs. That can be one of the worst things to do because then the song loses its identity and becomes something that is forced. There has been many times where, if we get stuck on an idea, we just leave it alone for a while. When it feels right again, we revisit it. That’s how our song “Until I’m Dead” came to be. We had the main riff written months before the song was done, we just never had the right parts to compliment it. The song was actually completed while we were in the studio recording another song. Chris and Alonso were waiting for the amps to get mic’d up and just jammed the riff. The song started to write itself. Its funny how things work out that way, inspiration can come at any time.
SJOCR: That spark that inspires us is a wonderful thing that empowers us to do great things. Do you have any other artistic hobbies or passion?
Pounders: A thing that makes Pounders work so well is the support that we have for each other. Pounders isn’t the ONLY thing that we have as a creative outlet. Chris and Justin do a lot of work with The Street Drum Corps and BANG!
Chris also is a part of an electro pop group Culture Theft,
Justin plays drums with AJ Orbitz for DJ/Drum performances, and Alonso seems to be in every San Jose band. He plays in Shadow Beat Ritual, Revolt Revenge and has a jazz big band. Pounders is always our main focus through everything though.
SJOCR: Ya all are some busy fellows. Where would you like to see the bands career go in the next five years?
Pounders: UP! We have been very happy with the successes that we have had but we are never content or satisfied. We can always be better at what we do and go further. Each of us have jobs outside of music and would love to be able to tell the “real world” to shove it! We want to have our music be our full time profession. All we need is that door to be cracked open and we can bust it down!
SJOCR: Well Our City Radio is here to help you in that endeavor. We can start by unlocking that door for you in our plethora of Networks around the world. How would you describe your stage persona image as opposed to the real-life, day-to-day person?
Pounders: It’s pretty close to real-life, just exaggerated. We love having fun on stage because the audience can really pick up on that. If they see us having a good time, it turns into a good time for them. Who wants to see a boring band just stand in one spot all night? You can just watch YouTube clips for that. Our mission is to make sure that every single person that comes to see us feels like they got their monies worth. They took the time to come out and support us, we need to reward them the best we can. We have a lot of banter with each other, poke a lot of fun on the mic but it’s all in love. We aren’t the jerks to each other in everyday situations like we are on stage. Well…Alonso actually is.
SJOCR: What a great attitude. I always believed the same about giving the audience your best. Any last words?
Pounders: Thank you to everyone that has been a part of TEAM DTP.
Pounders use #TeamDTP for their Street Team that’s “Down To Pound”
We can’t verbalize our appreciation to the fans enough. The support you all show us is never taken for granted. We get a lot of fans from word of mouth. Fans talk to other people about us and it helps us grow. We need that same enthusiasm for the entire music scene here. There are a lot of really good bands that just need the right people to listen. Keep coming out to shows, keep bringing friends, and keep buying CD’s. This will make San Jose and the entire Bay Area the focal point of the music scene again!
SJOCR: We look forward to hearing more from you on Our City Radio. Good luck and thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with our listeners and me! Peace.
Pounders: Thank you guys.
Our City Radio ROCKS!!!!

Dia de los Muertos
By Krysti Pyst0lz Vares
Let’s face it, the ending of the month of October is one of the best times of the year to be into rock music. You can usually catch some great shows in the area and those shows usually include great music, costume contests and maybe even some candy and drink specials if you’re lucky. Halloween isn’t just a great time of year for music fans, but for almost everyone out there (especially children) but there’s a holiday that comes up on the heels of Halloween called “Dia de los Muertos”. “Dia de los Muertos” is Spanish for “Day of the Dead”. It’s amazingly similar to Halloween for the fact that you dress up, there’s some amazing music to be heard and of course huge amounts of candy or in this case, sugar skulls.
“Dia de los Muertos” has been celebrated in the Spanish culture for about 3,000 years now and was started by the Aztecs. The holiday doesn’t just last for one day, but three days meaning that it goes from October 31st-November 2nd. The main difference between this holiday and Halloween is that people are not only celebrating death and other darker things but are also celebrating life. People gather with family and friends to celebrate the lives of their loved ones that have both passed and are still around today.
Besides being a joyous occasion for many people, it’s also a paradise for those of us that are into the punk and rockabilly/psychobilly scene. A lot of the music that has come out in these genres includes themes about death, zombies and of course having the best time possible. The people in these scenes are no stranger to dressing up and celebrating things and what better occasion than a 3 day holiday to do it.
The tradition is celebrated in a lot of areas and luckily they include large celebrations in our very own San Jose. The main event is being held at the San Jose Museum of Art this year and will host hands on activities including the making and decorating of sugar skulls, live music, performances including dancing skeletons, the history of the holiday itself and of course large amounts of food. The event will take place on Saturday November 2nd from 11am-5pm and the activities listed will go on throughout the entire day so you’ll have a good chance to see everything no matter which time you decided to attend the event at. Dressing up for the event is entirely optional but odds are that you just might have more fun if you decide to dress up and get into the spirit of things.
The San Jose Museum of Art is located in downtown San Jose so there are numerous other activities that you can do while there depending on your age and whatever time you can make it to the event at in general. If you don’t want to deal with the hassle of downtown parking, you can always take the VTA Lightrail which has a few stops near the museum itself and tends to be cheaper than paying for an actual parking spot. The event itself does have an entrance fee but it’s the same fee that you would have for entering the museum at any other day/time.
You can find the museum at
110 S Market St, San Jose , CA which is right next to The Fairmont Hotel and Cesar Chavez Park. The museum is open Tuesday-Sunday from 11am-5pm.
Tickets are available at the door or online at
For more information on the museum itself and the even you can go to their Facebook at

THE BOUILLEZ ACOUSTICS
BY Doreen Pedroni
Dan Bouillez (Bull-yea) is turning a dream into a reality! Dan started his dream in 2012. While jamming with friends and family at home and listening to the different sounds of the acoustic guitars. He pondered with the notion, “How can I make the guitar sound better?” I asked Dan why did he ask himself this question about the acoustic guitars but he couldn’t tell me.
Dan realized that one fall evening, while jamming with some friends that the acoustic guitars sounded “muffled”. This was the only word he could think of. Yes, each model has a different sound, however Dan wondered how the sound could be improved upon. Dan did a lot of research on how the standard guitar worked, how it created sound and frequencies. In his research he found that it has been about 500 years since the basic acoustic guitar has changed. Dan finally sat down with a pad and paper and went to work drawing for many months while studying the instrument. He finally produced what he was looking for. Then headed to the garage to start putting his drawings to life.
The Bouillez prototype
is patent pending and in the making! The look is completely different from a “normal” acoustic guitar. Dan explains that it’s not a guitar, it’s a “Bouillez“ because it is so different. The shape is the same, however, the technique for the generation of sound and the way it exits the instrument is nothing like a standard acoustic guitar. In the standard acoustic guitar the sound hole is in the middle of the soundboard. With the Bouillez, the sound waves are able to exit the front of the instrument from around the entire sound board instead of through one hole.
So what made Dan create the space around the soundboard? Sound wave deflection and direction! Sound waves travel outward from their source and The Bouillez uses this natural outward path of sound waves generated by the strings to exit around the sound board. The additional sound transmitted to the sound board through the bridge and saddle is also deflected out of the space around the sound board.
The combination of these sound waves exiting the Bouillez is what generates its unique sound. It has a broad range of sound capabilities over the standard guitar. For example; percussive acoustics. The player can strike the sound board like a drum while plucking strings. Changing the location of where the player strikes the strings, from near the bridge, to near the neck, greatly changes the sound due to the location change of the sound waves generated. The sound is much more crisp and warm. Some say it is similar to a banjo or Resonator. The difference in this case is that it has a much throatier sound or more bass.
The Bouillez prototype was finally completed. Thankfully I had the privilege to see and to play the Bouillez prototype and it is amazing to say the least. It feels like you are holding a standard acoustic
but the sound board is completely different. You need to see and hear it to believe that it is truly a one of a kind instrument. Everyone that plays acoustic guitar
will want a Bouillez. When asked “What do people say when they see the Bouillez? The responses are so different; “Wow”, “What is that?” and of course the most common one is ” I want it! Where can I get one?” When people are asked what they think of the sound, you will hear “WOW”, “Sounds awesome” and of course “I can’t explain what it sounds like but I love it”. You can actually hear it for yourself on his Kickstarter.com
page right now.
Dan is hoping to have the research and development for the official Bouillez complete in less than six months. The first official Bouillez is expected to be completed within eight to twelve months. What is Dan‘s goal? To manufacture and produce the Bouillez for musicians around the world. Dan had also said he doesn’t want to stop at the Bouillez. He wouldn’t explain what he meant by that but he guarantees that more information will be coming soon.
and watch the video on his Kickstarter page. Just go to the project link on his home page or you can locate it at the
home page. Just type Bouillez to see The Bouillez being played! Dan is actively looking for help with funding this great new project. So if you’re looking to get involved let him know! You can also “Like” his Bouillez Acoustics Facebook page at
to keep up with his progress!

On Saturday 19 October 2013 I took another small road trip. This time I traveled south to Gilroy, Ca. Gilroy doesn’t border San Jose, but many people commute to and from there during the week for their jobs and other reasons.
Gilroy is home to the annual Garlic Festival which is usually held during the summer months. There are many other attractions and events held in Gilroy that Bay Area residents flock to during the year.
Gilroy is a fast growing community.
I went to watch and support my friend Terilynn and her band mates of a Mötley Crüe Tribute band, Crüella, once again. This time at a club called 9Lives.
March 10, 2012
hard rock/heavy metal
San Francisco Bay Area
During the Crüella set, I was approached by Jorge, the lead singer of Steel Horse. Steel Horse is a Bon Jovi Tribute band and they opened the show for the night. I had taken a few photos of Steel Horse to make sure my camera settings were dialed in. Jorge was interested in obtaining those photos, which I was happy to provide. I asked if he was in another band that played original music, but he said no. Jorge then told me that he and his wife Joyce are the owners of 9Lives. Steel Horse did a great job motivating the lovely ladies in the audience to get up and dance. Although we were not able to conduct a live interview due to time constraints, Jorge was gracious enough to answer some written general questions about 9Lives that I later e-mailed to him.
This was a special night for Crüella because the drummer, Windy Wild, was celebrating her birthday. I can’t say enough about the musicianship of the members of Crüella. Windy is an awesome drummer as are Terilynn Bench on Bass, Mary Cary on Guitar and Cindy Lynn on vocals.
Please enjoy this interview with the co-owner of 9Lives, Jorge.
San Jose Our City Radio: What is the name of your business?
San Jose Our City Radio: What is the name of the primary person that is connected to the business?
Jorge: Jorge & Joyce Briones
San Jose Our City Radio: Where are you located?
Jorge: 9Lives is located at
7430 Monterey Street
Gilroy, California 95020
Map and venue image source: Google
San Jose Our City Radio: How long have you been in business?
Jorge: 3 years
San Jose Our City Radio: What is the main service or product?
Jorge: Concert venue. Live music. Showcasing local, regional and national talent
San Jose Our City Radio: What are your main hours of operation?
Jorge: Weekends 8:00pm – 1:00am. We have a comedy show on the last Wednesday of each month at 7:00pm
San Jose Our City Radio: Do you have a web site/e-mail?
For booking information, please refer to this page on their website.
San Jose Our City Radio: What sparked you to get into this business?
Jorge: The club is actually Joyce’s dream. Joyce shared her vision/desire to own a night club with me 24 years ago. After 20+ years of performing myself and an additional 15+ years in the event and event production industries the planets aligned and the opportunity to buy a struggling business presented itself. The rest as they say is history.
San Jose Our City Radio: When you initially bought the club, was there a lot of renovation needed before opening as 9Lives?
Jorge: We did a total remodel of the venue. With the exception of keeping the stage and bar where they were originally built we changed the look, feel and quality of the venue. Total renovation of the bar area including tiling the back wall, painted the entire interior, installed a new sound and lighting system, repainted the restrooms to tie into the main room and a ton of other stuff.
San Jose Our City Radio: Do you spend a lot of money for advertising to get exposure?
Jorge: 9Lives is really a destination venue. We are only open when we have shows so you can’t just stop in any day or night of the week and get a drink at the bar. That makes what we do even more challenging. We spent a ton of money early on to try to gain exposure and build an audience for the venue. We learned that many of the traditional media avenues are not effective for us as a business. We spend the bulk of our advertising/marketing budget in targeted social media advertising, posters and distribution and building trade agreements with various media (mostly print) to promote larger regional/national headliners. Our local band shows (over 100 per year) are marketed primarily by the bands performing. When you produce an average of 130 shows per year you just can’t put money behind every one. We get lots of online postings in multiple calendar listings and we are also on Facebook, Twitter and Reverbnation. Our web site and our e-mail list are probably our most effective tools for us. That and of course word of mouth.
San Jose Our City Radio: Have you found it hard to get attention about your business?
Jorge: Not by the bands but from the general public yes.
San Jose Our City Radio: What is the name your flagship service or product?
Jorge: Excellent live music.
San Jose Our City Radio: Do you have any deals going on at the moment?
Jorge: $3.00 mixed drinks and $15.00 buckets of beer (5) during the first hour of operation.
San Jose Our City Radio: Is there a time of day or week you are the slowest and need more exposure?
San Jose Our City Radio: What is your busiest time?
San Jose Our City Radio: Have you ever had radio airplay? If not, have you ever considered it?
San Jose Our City Radio: Let’s talk a little about Steel Horse. Does Steel Horse have a web presence? What are the band members names?
Jorge: The band consists of Dave Kester (guitar), Forest Wilson (bass), Brian Gibbs (drums), Ian King (keyboards) and Jorge Briones (vocals). Yes, you can find Steel Horse on the web at a few places. Our official website is undergoing a major overhaul right now but here are the places you can find the band online.
www.steelhorsebonjovi.com (Official website)
San Jose Our City Radio: How long has Steel Horse been together?
Jorge: The band was formed in 2012 and has been performing for the past year.
San Jose Our City Radio: What first brought you to the music scene? How did you get started?
Jorge: I got started in the local music scene right after high school, in the mid 80’s. I performed as a drummer for about 8 years and then made the switch to being a front man for Aces High, Razors Edge, Frenzy, Silent Chaos and Mach V. I kept at it through the 90’s and “retired” in 2000. Then in 2009 Silent Chaos did a 20 year reunion tour and that got things started I guess. Dave (Kester) played bass for the bands return and then after we wrapped up tour, Joyce and I announced that we were opening 9Lives. Didn’t intend to get back in another band but would occasionally do a “guest spot” with bands on cover tunes. I got asked by a friend who books major acts why I didn’t do a tribute band and after a few months of him hounding me saying he could book the band if I formed it I caved. I asked Dave and it just went from there. Dave and me pretty much handpicked the band members. There really was no “audition” process to speak of. We got the guys that we wanted. Truth told, it’s the strongest band I’ve ever been in and we have a ton of fun.
San Jose Our City Radio: Growing up, what bands influenced you the most?
Jorge: Too many bands and styles to list but the big ones for me were, Boston, Journey, Styx, Dokken and Bon Jovi. Growing up it was everything from Frank Sinatra and Elvis to Willie Nelson. I have pretty diverse musical tastes.
San Jose Our City Radio: Have you had a good deal of success with Steel Horse?
Jorge: We’ve had great success with Steel Horse. Over this past year we have performed in front of over 20,000 people and headlined shows like Redwood City’s Concert on the Square, Gilroy Garlic Festival, Hollister Motorcycle Rally, Sunnyvale’s Summer Concert Series and some other great shows. Plus we’ve got to play with some of the best tribute bands out there including Evolution and Cruella.
San Jose Our City Radio: Where would you like to see your music and business career go in the next five years?
Jorge: You know Steel Horse if a fun outlet for all of us in the band. We take it very seriously and we are professional in our approach. We are a concert band meaning that’s what we give our fans and the venues that book us. We are all focused on being the best tribute band that we can be and performing at large-scale festivals, fairs, clubs and doing corporate events. I’m not going to lie, we are money band. We play to have a great time, put on a great show, build fans and make good money doing it. For 9Lives it’s about continuing to grow and be recognized as the best small live entertainment venue on the west coast. Our staff works hard, very hard to be the best and they are. We’ve got a tough market that we are located in, lots of competition and the people in San Jose seem to think that we are located on the back side of the moon but as long as we can keep growing and maintaining a high standard of excellent customer service and entertainment we will be around.
San Jose Our City Radio: Do you have a stage name?
Jorge: No, it’s funny because I introduce all the guys during the set but I never introduce myself. Sometimes people ask who I am when I introduce the band and I just say that I am Jon. J
San Jose Our City Radio: How would you describe your stage persona/ image as opposed to the real-life, day-to-day businessman and husband? Do you have children?
Jorge: When I’m on stage I give it everything I’ve got. I love being up there and having people react positively to what we do. I believe that when you are in a band that it should be a party feel, fun. As the front person I am the ring leader. I also believe that if people gave up their time to come see my band then I owe them a show. I owe it to them to look like I am in a band, act like a performer and give them an energetic show. It’s a show after all. That’s what a lot of these kids in bands today don’t get. If you look like the roadie or the guy standing next to me at the bar what makes you special on stage? The band is a business and just like with 9Lives, I/we take that very seriously. We aren’t there just to be there, we are doing what we do to be the best and be successful. I’m one of those people who knows only one way to do things and that’s all in. Otherwise don’t waste yours or others time. Joyce and me never had any kids but we have a couple of nephews and a niece that are like our kids. If we did have kids we probably wouldn’t have 9Lives. Plus she already has a kid in me and four other guys in Steel Horse. She’s our Yoko in a good way, she grounds us when we get inflated egos and think that we really are rock stars.
San Jose Our City Radio: Any last words?
Jorge: Man, really? Like I haven’t already talked your ear off? I’d just tell your listeners to come check out a Steel Horse show when you can. You may not like Bon Jovi but face it, you will be singing before our set is done . . . “Wanted!”. And to support the local music venues and original music bands that are out there busting their asses to make music and try to succeed in this crazy industry. It won’t kill you to get out of your house, find a baby-sitter and take in a band that plays live music. Stop bitching about having to pay $5 to see 3-4 bands in a night and support your local venue and community. Even if they aren’t great musicians or it’s not your style of music, show some appreciation for what musicians put out there for your to take in.
San Jose Our City Radio: Jorge, we look forward to hearing more from Steel Horse and 9Lives. Good luck and thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with our listeners and viewers at San Jose Our City Radio!
Jorge: Thanks for the opportunity! We are telling everyone about San Jose Our City Radio.
I had issued Jorge a challenge to write and record some original music to play on our Rock Station. He has accepted the challenge and Steel Horse will do their best to bring original content to San Jose Our City Radio in the future.
