of the Month, July 1998
Featuring ex-Bad Posture man Eddie Galvan on vocals and
guitars, plus the towering Mike Ingram on bass and the miraculously metronomic
Kristen Ross on drums, Los Cerveceros are truly the bar band to beat them
all. Galvan, a diminutive, pleasant geezer off stage, metamorphoses into
a Gibson-beating Angus Young from Hades whilst stomping up and down on
the boards as Ingram beats on the bass so hard that if frequently falls
off his body. Rather than call a halt to the action, he wrassles with
the sucker on the floor like he's battling an alligator.
Eddie Galvan, songwriter and guitarist, launched the San Francisco based
Los Cerveceros band in 1990. Eddie's musical style dates back to the early
80's San Francisco and Los Angeles punk scene where he formed his premiere
underground punk band, Bad Posture. Los Cerveceros' drummer Kirsten Ross,
comes from Chico, California. She began playing as a youngster having
been inspired by her studio drum musician father whose musical styles
included dixieland and country. Mike Ingram, 31 year old bass guitarist
rounds out the trio. He originally hails from Nigiaragua and also touts
a rich musical heritage.
Los Cerveceros recently recorded live at The Bottom of Hill and have plans
to release a CD. Anyone interested in contacting Los Ceveceros to play
private parties, night clubs can call the group at (415) 452-8832.
