Since 1974, East L.A.'s Los Lobos have been exploring the artistic and commercial possibilities of American biculturalism, moving back and forth between their Chicano roots and their love of American rock & roll. Although the band first gained fame as part of the early-Eighties roots-rock revival, they didn't so much strip music down as mix it up, playing norteño, blues, country, Tex-Mex, ballads, folk, and rock. - See more at: http://www.valleyperformingartscenter.org/calendar/los-lobos-and-los-lon...

From prestigious clubs like the House of Blues, to pop-culture festivals like the Woodstock Opera House and No-Ho Theatre & Arts Festival, the Neil Deal keeps audiences singing along and yelling for encores! An extensive catalog of hit songs, tracking Neil Young’s multi-generational career, translates to a music event of memorable proportions.

The Band

Dennis Neil – Woodland Hills, CA
As a big fan of “Neil” music since the ’70s, it was only natural the Dennis would adopt the role in doing the tribute band version of Neil Young & Crazy Horse. “When I first learned to play guitar, it was Neil who had the most influence on my style,” recalls Dennis. “His lead work is so different from his contemporaries. Neil is also an incredible song-smith. This gives us plenty of material to put on a great show.”

Bruce Spiegel – North Hills, CA
Born in New York but raised in Los Angeles, Bruce started on bass with Out To Lunch, featuring guitarist Michael O’Neill, currently w/George Benson; Vocalist Joyce Yarrow (Peter Yarrow’s sis). Emmy Nominated composer Michael Silversher; Chris & Mark Petersen (Chris from Pure Prairie League) in the Country Rock group Sarabande. More recently with band Heartless, backing Jimmy Hall (Jeff Beck, Wet Willie) and Greg Martin (Kentucky Headhunters). Bruce plays Fender and Rickenbacker basses.www.brucespiegel.com

Steven Elowe – Montecito Park, CA
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Steve started playing guitar and singing at 8 years old. By 10 years old he was playing in bands and, by 13, recording commercials. As a solo artist Steve was signed to Warner Bros. and Polydor Records in the 80s, then remained a session singer/guitarist for commercials and movies. Most recently with the bands Loose Chains and Savor, a tribute to Santana, Steve now joins The Neil Deal. He loves Neil Young’s music and finds it an honor to play in such a great tribute to Young’s career.

Johnny Z – Santa Clarita, CA
Our newest member…
Born and raised in Southern California, Johnny “Z” Zimmerman began working as a professional drummer at the age of 15.

Now, 18 years and countless performances and recordings later, Johnny Z is regarded by many as the “first call” when a drummer, who will fit comfortably into any musical scenario, is needed.
