Singer Rob Elfaizy, who has a remarkable likeness to Oingo Boingo founder Danny Elfman, launched his eight-member Oingo tribute act Dead Man’s Party in 2000.
Escondido saxman Bruce Zimmerman (Skanic, Elijiah Emmanuel and the Revelations) has been with Dead Man’s Party since the beginning. He says their fans demand note-for-note precision. “They know this music to a tee, so every horn arrangement has to be spot-on or we hear about it.”
