Burning Bettie is a rock band based out of the Coachella Valley. They’re genre may be listed as rock, but their unique take on rock music comes out in several ways which can sound familiar, but always new and refreshing. At times, you will hear hints of different eras of rock as far back as Buddy Holly/ Beatles thru classic hard rock thru surf/ punk/ rockabilly thru 80’s indie and metal thru 90’s alternative and even 2000’s nu metal. All of these sounds are tied together and a truly Burning Bettie sound emerges, but in the end, the listener will hear for themselves.
Burning Bettie is currently playing local shows in the Coachella valley and a full length studio album is in the works. A couple of tracks are posted up here for free streaming and download as well as upcoming shows. Hope to see you at a show soon!!

Tramps in Stereo is an alternative pop/rock band whose synthesizer sounds and deliberate bass gives this band a modern sound with a new wave twist. Tramps In Stereo’s musical journey has taken them through the southern California playing the likes of many big club scenes from the local music venues to LA venues such as the famous “Whisky A Go Go”. Although many musicians’ claim to fame includes the “Whisky A Go Go”, Tramps In Stereo feels that there is still more work to do.
Tramps In Stereo was formed in late 2010, and band members include Jesse “Vaz” Vasquez, “Brettpop” Custodio and Bobby “Valenz” Valenzuela. Their musical exploits did not begin as founding members of Tramps In Stereo, but began as the band “The Craze” in early 2001. After a great run in small clubs and some radio success, the threesome disbanded from “The Craze” to pursue individual musical endeavors. Without a doubt, their musical chemistry would prove to be unbreakable in future years.
After 4 years, Jesse Vasquez, Brett Custodio and Bobby Valenzuela reunited as the band “Tramps in Stereo”. With each member bringing their own experience and musical growth to the table, a new style of music was created. Songwriter Jesse Vaz quotes, “It’s like we hit a time travel button. We got together and started working like as if we never stopped. Only now, the confidence and ideas are so fresh and cutting edge!” Upon creating the album, new members Nick “Keys” Humphrey and Dani White joined the group bringing more influence and creative strength that the band needed. Jesse’s creative song writing, along with the four other band members musical insight have developed a new, unique musical sound. After two years, Tramps In Stereo is ready to release their first album.
The Tramps In Stereo album is a truly “independent” album that was written, produced and funded by the band itself. The album brings an honest sound. The album has the feeling of a stranger, but the grooves are so familiar. Tramps in Stereo have produced this album with heartfelt lyrics, catchy melodies, and beats that move the body. The album is sure to be playing in your car, nightclub, and on your iPod for years to come.
