Band/artist history
ConGa Punks are an incredible Power Station equipped with various songwriters, composers, arrangers, vocalists, and multifaceted instrumentalists...In the distance, you hear their approach, both infectious and habitual. The beats mixed nicely with all sorts of sound. Sometimes-occasional wailing vocals blending in with some sparkling guitar work. This band is going somewhere and going there fast. If this release is any indication of their musical intent, the ConGa PunKs are sure to stimulate all five senses and Seven Continents. Here they span all sides of that so-called crossover. This collection will make you remember how good music can be, but before you attempt to categorize their sound, they will make you want to hit a dance floor unsure of what to do next. You will find yourself in the possession of a beautiful keyboard driven vamp that lets you wind up and back down again. The most unusual thing about this work is that it is so complete. It gels together in a way you would expect the most professional of albums to.

Artist History The ConGa Punks formed in Camarillo, California, when drummer Cougar Estrada decided to put some of his own ideas to the test. ConGa PunKs were created with the collective belief that if you write and perform great songs, people will listen. The band's debut album is produced by Cougar Estrada and mixed by Nik Green, ( keyboardist formally of Blue Murder fame ) along with Cougar Estrada. This work highlight's the band's strong points; rhythmic foundation, honest songwriting, great musicianship and a scientific yet straightforward musical approach. The result is an album which ranges from the acoustic / simplistic "The Right" to the serious and reflective "Love, Causes, Pain." The journey continues from the Cuban Songo inspired Ya Te Vas! to the hard edged Hollywood's Heaven. Believing that hard work yields results, the newly-founded ConGa PunKs spent their first two years together writing, and rehearsing in the Camarillo, CA garage. Recording took place at the beautiful Santa Maria "Spirit Hills Studio" owned and operated by the great Jazz vibist Fred Raulston.
