We do catchy original songs as well as some classics done with a fresh spin. Expect to dance! We have several different options for parties including our Kindie Rock set for kids of all ages, surf rock set, What's Your Answer? pop culture game show, Rock and Roll Academy, and the Super Hero Academy as seen at many comic conventions including NY Comic Con!
The O>MATICS have been rocking for 15 years playing high energy shows for all ages. They have released 5 full length albums, been the stars of 2 comic books by Mark Mariano, and were featured on The Price Is Right. Drummer Chris O>matic has been hosting his own Pee-wee Herman-esque web show for 5 years featuring puppets, old public domain educational films, and cartoons. The band has shared festival bills with OK Go, Cake, and Spoon and shared the stage with surf legend Gary Hoey and The Fleshtones. For the first time, we are offering our Kindie Rock show for kids of all ages as well as our new Surf Rock show for everyone here on Gig Salad. We can't wait to get you dancing!
