About Dead Man's Party:
Oingo Boingo tribute band Dead Man's Party has been bringing you Boingo tunes LIVE - the way you remember 'em from the original Oingo Boingo shows - for over a decade! This 8-piece band has been fashioned after the original Oingo Boingo line-up, featuring a three-piece horn section, guitar, bass, keys, drums and a front-man so convincing that people sometimes believe that they are actually watching Danny Elfman himself!
Not only has DMP been "ELFO-APPROVED" by Oingo Boingo founder & DMP supporter Richard Elfman, but the band is even sometimes joined on stage by former Oingo Boingo band members, such as STEVE BARTEK, JOHNNY "VATOS" HERNANDEZ and JOHN AVILA.
