    GOO GOO DOLLS, STEELHEART, Ex-MEGADETH Members To Perform At 'From Classical To Rock' "From Classical To Rock" has joined forces with the non-profit OC Music & Dance School to present a star-studded concert benefiting music education for Orange County communities. Set to take place on April 28 at Irvine Barclay Theatre, located at the edge of the UC Irvine campus, the event will be hosted by Randy Jackson and headlined by John Rzeznik of the GOO GOO DOLLS, bringing young aspiring OCMD music students together with platinum-selling rock stars and acclaimed classical musicians performing together under one roof.This unique concert features high-profile musicians from classical music, jazz to rock and roll with original music scored by one of the biggest Hollywood composers, Mr. Nathan Wang, joined on stage by rock, classical musicians and members of the Pacific Symphony Youth Orchestra, members of the Donald Bren Honors High School Orchestra and Chorus, and the honorees of the Orange County Artist of the Year in music, voice and dance.In addition to Rzeznik and Jackson, special guest artists include Miljenko Matijevic (STEELHEART), Lynn Harrell, Monte Pittman (Madonna, PRONG), Alex Boye, Chinese violinist Yutong (Pacific Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Hollywood Bowl Orchestra), Marten Andersson (STEELHEART, GEORGE LYNCH, LIZZY BORDEN), Chris Broderick (ACT OF DEFIANCE, ex-MEGADETH), acclaimed cellist Stan Sharp and many more."From Classical To Rock" co-founder/co-producer Marten Andersson states: "I am so honored and proud to co-produce another even greater 'From Classical To Rock' concert, benefiting music education. This time we joined forces with a nonprofit called Orange County Music & Dance school. It's an amazing school who gives talented low-income minorities a chance to be the next classical genius or the next rock star. All musicians involved with the event are contributing their time, energy and musical talents in an effort to benefit musical education.""From Classical To Rock" was founded in 2016 by the famous Chinese violinist Yutong, rock musician Marten Andersson and acclaimed cellist Stan Sharp to help benefit music education. Stan, Marten and Yutong co-produced the first concert with bassist Robert DeLeo from the band STONE TEMPLE PILOTS and the late Chester Bennington from LINKIN PARK. The concert was a huge hit (it was also the last concert Chester performed with STONE TEMPLE PILOTS). The concert raised $50,000 for public music education.For more information, visit

    Former AMORAL, FOR THE IMPERIUM, MYGRAIN Members Join Forces In OCEANHOARSE After two years of working in the shadows, Helsinki-based heavy metal band OCEANHOARSE is ready to show itself. The band, which consists of familiar faces from the Finnish metal scene, released its debut single and video, "The Oceanhoarse", last month.It was a conscious decision to hold up the launch until the band was extremely tight, the song material strong enough, and the band's own unique voice beginning to take shape. Good songs were canned along the way, if the group felt they didn't fit or weren't original enough.Early on, the members of OCEANHOARSE also set some ground rules for themselves: There would be zero use of backing tracks or synthesizers. The focus would be on kick-ass, live-oriented heavy metal. The band would also have to be number one priority to all of its members, no exceptions."It was early December 2016 when I realized that it was time to disband my old group AMORAL and start something new, from scratch," guitarist Ben Varon says. "And, most importantly, do it with musicians who share my drive and passion for playing music, musicians that would be willing and able to put 130 percent of themselves into this band. The first guy I thought of was bassist Jyri Helko. I called him that very same day."It didn't take long to convince Helko, formerly of FOR THE IMPERIUM, to jump on board."The call came at the perfect time," Jyri says. "Like Ben, I also felt the need to play in a hard-working, tight band that would blow all other groups off the stage. It was an easy decision."When it came to finding the right frontman, Varon and Helko had their eyes set on one guy only: ex-MYGRAIN singer Tommy Tuovinen."I got excited about the idea right away," Tommy remembers. "I had had it with bands and projects that went nowhere, so just the attitude alone of these dudes spoke to me. Once I heard the songs they were working on, I knew I needed to be in this band."Filling the drum spot was looking tricky for a while. All serious candidates were already involved in multiple bands, and sharing was not an option. But the Gods of Heavy Metal decided to bless the new band with the best-kept secret in Finnish metal: young newcomer Oskari Niemi was found through recommendations of friends, and his attitude and playing blew the guys away. It was clear to all that Oskari was the missing piece. OCEANHOARSE was now complete.
