The BrosQuitos - (Set time: 8:00 PM)
The BrosQuitos
The BrosQuitos feature James Johnson on vocals and guitar, Max Powell on bass, Hugo Chavez on drums and John Clark on lead guitar.

Johnson, Powell and Chavez formed such a tight bond at Desert Hot Springs High School, they named themselves the BrosQuitos to seal their friendship.

“You go through school with people and you get to know a new level of them,” said Johnson, 18. “We knew that only four years of friendship in high school wouldn’t last that long (and) we wanted to look at ourselves as a constant brotherhood. So we called ourselves the BrosQuitos because our music can become infectious and we all look at ourselves as brotherly. So, BrosQuitos -- kind of like mosquitoes. That’s supposed to represent the fast paced music we have and the rapid growing we’re trying to achieve.”

The source of their attraction is their mutual affinity for the Irish indie rock band, Two Door Cinema Club.

“We all have an obsession with Two Door Cinema Club,” Johnson said. “That’s our band. We love it so much. That’s kind of what brought us together.”

But the BrosQuitos have spread their wings since high school. They brought Clark in to play guitar last year and got a record deal with the Inland Empire recording label, DownPour Records, which they say may be the smallest record label in California. They used to record heavy metal groups, but Johnson says they’re now the only band on the label. Their website says, “Content coming soon.”
