Inspired by the finer things in life: rock and roll, pizza and video games, The R_Garcia band creates music for people who refuse to grow up. The band’s sound combines soaring melodies, bombastic drumming, throwback electronic sounds and fuzz-drenched guitars into a full-body-moving experience. Think Jimi Hendrix and Keith Moon jamming with a Nintendo Entertainment System.
The R_Garcia Band’s shows are loud, high-energy and completely outlandish. More than just your typical Friday night dance party, band members Randy Garcia and Kayla Webb indulge spectators with comedic shenanigans and audience participation. (They recently had a guy twerk on a speaker stack during a show.) “We push ourselves hard and play as ridiculously as we can,” Garcia said.
"First and foremost, if you haven’t heard the new R_Garcia album “Demons to Diamonds,” stop what you’re doing (I guess surgeons in the middle of surgery are excluded from the “stop” part… for now…) and listen. I was hooked halfway through the first song. For real. It’s good." — Josh Carples
"Please do yourself a favor and listen to R_Garcia Band’s “The Things You Love”. It’s entrancing and a complete joy to listen to. Although deeply rooted in what R_Garcia themselves call “nerd-rock”, this song oozes with a cool not typically found in said genre." — musiciantakeheed.com
“When I first became acquainted with Atlanta-based musician Randy Garcia and his new solo album "Resurgens," I was pretty much astounded - not just by the intricate and enjoyable creation he was presenting, but by the sheer depth of his overall ability and involvement with his local music community.”
— Stephanie Augello, Uncounted Circles
“When not manning the helm at the Nophi Music Co., Atlanta-based Randy Garcia lays down his own amazing tracks. His latest release Resurgens breaks down the barriers between DIY punk rock, lo-fi electronica and danceable pop, blending them all into gorgeous, almost dreamlike soundscapes.”
— Z, Wired
“Resurgens traverses many different styles, which results in a record consistent in quality of production, but not necessarily in genre or style. This is actually a strength of the record; as it feels constantly inspired and surprising.”
— Ryan Grove, Sock Monkey Sound
“Randy Garcia is a master craftsman, involved with and exceeding at every level of his work, and brings a winsome attitude to his music that makes it irresistible.”
— Greg Dutcher, Igloo Magazine
“...while Garcia’s latest opus remains a highly personal work, it’s also a playful record that is unafraid to experiment with different sounds and musical approaches.”
— Moe Castro, Latest Disgrace
