BRUCE THOMAS, INSTINCT

_MG_6358

Bruce Thomas began playing at high schools all over Los Angeles, most notably Hollywood, Topanga Canyon, and the San Fernando Valley. Landmark rock clubs such as the Topanga Corral, Moonfire Inn, Gazzari’s, Magic Castle, Palm Springs Convention Center, Hollywood Palladium, and many more were typical venues for Bruce.

Recording sessions were numerous as well. Studios such as the American Recording Company, Moonglow Records, Audio Sonics Recorders, and Cherokee Street Studios were amongst those where Bruce and bandmates recorded various LP bids. So many songs were recorded from 1965-1969 by Bruce. In fact, a new vintage vinyl LP remix will soon be released this September, 2014 by Break-A-Way Records.

During the late ‘60’s, Bruce would frequently bump up against other recording groups such as Mel Taylor of the Ventures, Davie Allen and the Arrows, T.I.M.E., the Electric Prunes, and many more. So many “one-hit” groups dominated these studios all vying for a hit album.

Bruce’s bands enjoyed playing for the sake of making music. In his prime, Bruce was the exclusive guy to hire for live performances. They were riveting! No matter how great the recognition, he would never turn down an invitation to play any venue in Los Angeles from the backwood taverns in Topanga Canyon (the most recognized Hippie haven outside of Santa Cruz, California) to Hollywood’s iconic clubs back then such as Gazzari’s and the Whisky.

In summation, Bruce was not just part of another ‘60’s garage band that made the scene along with other groups. He was part of a larger movement at the time…the 60’s rebellion, out of which came some of the best music ever. Currently, Bruce has found his musical niche in Fusion Melodic Improvisational Rock.
