Sons of Zap's Corndog EP' has edge over other bands'

BRAWLEY — Local band Sons of Zap is making last-minute preparations for its performance Saturday in the "Corndog Festival" here.

Anthony Jauregui, lead vocalist and rhythm guitarist for the band, lead guitarist and vocalist Jesse Corky "Corndog" Jauregui, drummer Steve "Crail" Garcia III and Mark Valencia, bass guitarist, make up the Brawley-based band.

Sons of Zap recently compiled its first recording of five songs named "The Corndog EP," with an interesting story behind the naming of the album.

The band's former bass player was released by the band before they were about to record the album.

Anthony's brother, "Corndog," stepped in and filled the void.

The album has a blend of heavy metal to modern rock.

It would be hard to categorize the music because of the blends that give it an edge over other bands.

The lyrics aren't too bad either.

Lead singer Anthony has a voice that fits the music as well.


For some reason, his voice reminded me of Kurt Cobain. Definitely another plus.

The band also plays well. You can tell every member brings in experience and skill.

They're set to perform at the festival starting at 7 p.m. at the American Citizens Club grounds on the corner of Cesar Chavez Street and C Street in Brawley.

Admission is $5.
