<< The … Magnificent four at the Circus Club for an evening full rock, of those alternatives, that make you dream and even imagine distant worlds, such as those that can be found in fantasy novels. Everything in Qua’ Rock Thunder Night on December 20, organized by the sociocultural Qua’ Rock Events.

A genre that encompasses a variety of styles, from punk to grunge to rock a little more classic for the representation of various scenarios that catapults the listener into different atmospheres, a different one for each song, ending with a more melodic part at the keyboard. A band that is working to build his more personal sound and processed. >>
