Goldfinger Tickets for Sale

Another band composed of Ska and Punk fans that couldn't bear to settle on just one genre. Goldfinger spin out slick, 100% horn-free music that's actually closer to Green Day than the Skatalites -- or even the Specials for that matter. Their catchy hooks and high-energy playing have helped them win the hearts of legions of contemporary Ska Punk and corporate rock fans everywhere.

Goldfinger formed with it's original line-up in 1994. John and Simon worked together at NaNa's shoe store in California. They decided to form a band and needed a drummer, so they asked Darrin who was working at the local Starbucks, to listen to a tape they had made. The day he heard it he was air drumming along with it all day, he loved it! At this time, Goldfinger's original guitarist left to the band to become a pro surfer in Costa Rica, where he still lives. John had a good friend named Charlie who played guitar and he thought he would be a great replacement on guitar.

Charlie's first show with Goldfinger was a little hectic; he was given a tape of the songs on Friday night, practiced with the band on Saturday and played a show that night. Goldfinger were now recording their Demo EP called 'richter', it was given amazing reviews and they were getting good indie/college radio airplay. Goldfinger were now given the opportunity to record the S/T debut LP. They recorded the cd in 1995 and it was released in spring on 1996, their first single/video 'Here in your Bedroom' was played at a high rate and they gained in popularity. Goldfinger also released videos for 'Mable' and 'Only a Day'.
